Dad’s the Word with Our Father’s Day Football Cards and Gifts
Father’s Day is all about celebrating your Dad, Daddy, Grandad, Stepdad and dad-like figures and letting them know that you appreciate them and everything they do. This Father’s Day, think outside the socks! If they’re a footy fanatic, one of our personalised Father’s Day football cards and brilliant gifts will show them you care. Stuck for ideas on what to do for their big day? We’ve rounded up a few ways to celebrate them and their love of football below. Football kit optional.
Soccer Aid Squad
UEFA Champions League Finals has now ended, but this year’s Soccer Aid for Unicef is on Father’s Day. With former footballers and goalkeepers signed up to play for the England team such as John Terry, Jamie Redknapp, David Seaman, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, and Joe Cole, and players Didier Drogba, Robbie Keane, Michael Essien and Ricardo Carvalho signed up for the World XI team, this is definitely one game to watch together.
You could even head to your local pub, watch it on the big screen and treat him to a Sunday pub lunch (and a pint of beer) while you’re there. And with all proceeds raised going towards Unicef’s work protecting children in danger around the world, it’s a great way to spend time with him while supporting a good cause at the same time.
A Day of DIY
Give him one of the best gifts ever for Father's Day – family time. Keep it fresh and creative and get your DIY on with him. We’re talking an afternoon of football crafts. Grab a football and get everyone to write a little message on it, or split into two teams and design your own (and best) shoebox football pitch. Another idea could be a game of drawing a football pitch or designing a football kit with felt pens, pencils and photos.
All About The Food
Food and football go hand-in-hand, and they say the best way to impress a man is through his stomach, right? Why not arrange a football-themed buffet? Score big points with all his favourite treats, and if he has a sweet tooth you could bake him a cake with icing to create a football, bake t-shirt shaped biscuits with coloured icing based on his favourite football team. If he loves to be king of the kitchen, you could also get him involved and bake together. Just let him lick the spoon today, as it’s his day.
Football Movie Marathon
Download of all his favourite football movies, grab some popcorn (Sweet and Salty is the best) and get set for a day or night of watching as many of these films as possible. Just one rule? Let him choose which ones he wants to watch, and be prepared for lots of commentaries.
Moonpig it! Football approved cards and gifts
This Father's Day, show him your love and get him a present to remember with personalised football cards or footie related gift. Make it personal with a card of his fave team (even if it's not yours), and personalise it with his name, the name of his fave player and their football number, and don’t forget to add those classic photos. To add even MORE lovely feelings and memories (there’s never too many) to his big day, a mug or t-shirt with a thoughtful message and photo will bring on the cheers and make him feel like he's the best dad in the world. What to write? When it comes to writing your message, speaking from the heart is always best (with a little humour thrown into the mix). Start by wishing him a Happy Father's Day! Thank him! Thank him for the vital role and influence he is in your life. Maybe share a sentimental or funny memory (we all have at least one, right), and writing one always adds personalisation to your Father's Day message. End with a warm and heartfelt message.
To all the dads and dad-like figures out there, a happy Father’s Day from all of us here at Moonpig.
