5 Last-Minute Ideas for Lancashire Dads this Father’s Day

Hear ye, hear ye – Father’s Day is next weekend! And whilst we would never imply that it might have slipped your mind here’s a quick list of 5 Preston based presents you still have time to arrange 😉

Preston Craft Beer Map
We’ll get the cliches out of the way first; if the pops in your life likes a pint (and you’ve left it too late to book lunch), Preston Beer Girls have done the heavy lifting for you. Their brilliant Craft Beer Map highlights the best places for a happy hoppy fathers day in the city centre – spend a couple of hours putting the world to rights, or grab some cooler-than-your-average cans from the Plug & Taps fridge if you need something more wrap-able!

'winedown' written in corks

Winedown are ahead of the game with a “Who’s The Daddy?” twist on their regular Wednesday night quiz – choose your team name and start brushing up on your trivia to battle for favourite child status. Alternatively if you can’t face a hangover on a school night Dougie can help you pick out a bottle to gift that will definitely boost you in the rankings…

Lancashire Lads
Abandon the hassle of booking altogether and strike out for the hills (or the woods, or the coast…) with a big dollop of inspiration from Lancashire Lad’s Life. With GPS routes and coffee recommendations en-route you can tread some well worn paths or discover hidden gems in Lancashire and beyond.

Secret Industries
For the proud Prestonian with wall space to spare you don’t get more classically Lancashire Dad than this selection of prints from Secret Industries. Tim’s also got cards, badges, pins and apparel if prints aren’t your (or your dads!) thing – catch him at the makers market this weekend to browse in person!

DD Practical
And finally there’s still just about enough time to order a ready-made hand crafted leather gift from Dani of DD Practical – this blog post was supposed to be a chance to plug our workshop on the 26th as the perfect Fathers Day gift but we’ve sold out! Nevertheless you can choose from wallets, fobs, accessories and more in the DD Practical shop or she’ll also be on the Flag Market with a dad-centric selection this Saturday!

(and make sure to sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about new workshop dates)!
