Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Looking for some Father’s Day gift ideas for this coming Sunday? The Post Office Shop has a unique selection for the dads and grandpas in your family. Here are a few suggestions.
Sunday, 18th June is Father’s Day. Just like Mother’s Day it is celebrated all over the world. In the UK, Europe and the Americas it is always marked on the third Sunday in June. In Germany, it is traditional for men to go to the woods with a wagon of beer, wines and meats. According to official statistics, you won’t be too surprised to hear, traffic related accidents increase on this day.
If you want to get your dad an extra special gift this year, here are some great ideas.
For the Petrol Head
The British car industry has a rich history and the British Auto Legends selection of stamps and associated memorabilia remembers some of the most iconic cars and manufacturers.
Included in this range is the Jaguar E-Type 50th Anniversary Commemorative Stamp Sheet . Arguably the most beautiful car in history.
Other modes of transport are also covered for fans of trains, planes and automobiles. This includes the great age of steam within our Locomotives stamp selection covering the great engines of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
For the Football Fan
For the first time since 1966, England has won the World Cup! Well to clarify slightly, the England national under -20 team has, beating Venezuela 1-0 over the weekend. So, there is no better time to reminisce with some legendary Football Heroes. From Jimmy Greaves to Sir Bobby Charlton, the greats of yesteryear are all remembered in a series of stamp covers.
In addition, there is also the 1966 England World Cup Win Photo Cover signed by a true legend and gentleman of the game, Sir Geoff Hurst.
For the Fisherman
Whilst we don’t supply a full fishing kit here at the Post Office Shop, the keen fisher in your family will love this quirky fishing inspired gift.
The Deep Tea Fisherman Tea Bag Holder fixes to the side of your mug with suction cups. It securely holds the tea bag into the mug to make sure you get the perfect strength brew.
