We’re all guilty of going for the cliché option when buying gifts. Book tokens for the nieces and nephews, flowers for mum, toaster for the newly weds (as if they’ve been grilling bread this whole time, like weirdos). But sometimes there’s not a ‘go-to’ option that works.
When it comes to ‘classic’ Father’s Day gifts, there’s a few that always get recommended – a box of liquorice allsorts, something BBQ related, mid-range whiskey… but we know that not every dad, stepdad, uncle or grandad fits that mold. They’re not all meat-grilling, Talisker-swirling, old-school sitcom characters.
Some ‘dad-types’ like flowers. Some like classical music, or Metallica. Some can whip up a four-course dining experience for six, some struggle with beans on toast. What we’re trying to get at is that they’re all different, so you need a one-size-fits-all cliché gift option…
Your New Go-To Father’s Day Gift: the Pact Coffee Plan
We don’t want to brag, but this is foolproof:
- You can get world-class coffee delivered directly to their house, so there’s no stress about packaging something up and heading to the Post Office
- It’s really good coffee. You’ve seen that Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference blend in the cupboard on a trip ‘back home’, but this will really knock his socks off
- You can keep on sending his coffee for as long as you want – just one bag, one every month for three months, a whole year’s supply of coffee. Depends how good his crimbo present was to you, right?
Give it a go this year and stop browsing gifting suggestion lists – you know, the ones filled with engraved penknifes and saccharine ‘I love you daddy’ teddy bears. Life’s too short, and he’s sure to be glad to get something he’ll really love*. Get started here.
