Looking for a way to show your dad just how much he means to you without breaking the bank? We’ve got you covered.

Family fuddle
If you have siblings, organise a family fuddle to celebrate this year. Everyone bring a couple of food items and before you know it you’ve got a party at a fraction of the cost.

Cocktail party
Organise a get together and have everyone bring a bottle of something. When you have a table full of ingredients in front of you, get creative and make a cocktail inspired by the personality traits of your old man.

Bake off
Get family members to make a dessert and have your dad take the starring role as Paul Hollywood, sampling and choosing his ‘Star Baker’. Warning: things may get competitive.

Give the gift of a new hobby
Whether it’s a planter with a handful of seeds, a second hand set of golf clubs or a new DIY tool, it doesn’t have to cost much to give your dad some inspiration, and who knows you might help him find his new favourite hobby.

Give your dad something he really wants this year, a promise of your time and effort. Perhaps he’ll take you up on a car wash or a breakfast in bed, give him some options and see what floats his boat!

Think about the little things
It’s the little things in life that really make our day, and those things don’t cost much. Think a tasty syrup for his coffee or a doorstop delivery of fish and chips from the local chippy.
