Money Saving Ideas for Fathers Day

One week to go guys.. and who has organised anything? Not many of you I reckon, I’ve definitely done nothing.. but have thought about it alot 🙂 Fathers day is always bitter/sweet for me as my dad passed away pretty much 18 years to the day, 29th May 1996. But it becomes a whole different celebration when you have children where it’s all about my hubby, who is a brilliant dad.

Here’s my 5 favourite ideas, all with some kind of money saving slant to them.

  1. Dinner out – a great idea as it involves you getting some nice food cooked by someone else.
  2. Cook dinner – get a nice steak from your local butchers and roast some wedges, sweet potato and normal potato. Maybe a bit of rocket salad on the side. Much cheaper than option 1.
  3. Get the children to make something. Paint a picture, make a card, make some cookies. This has to go down well.
  4. A handmade book of gift vouchers offering things like cups of tea made all day, lie in voucher, friday night down the pub voucher.
  5. Groupon the discount website has loads of fathers day type deals at the moment. Rally driving to spa days to mobile phone accessories.  They have even set up a dedicated part of their website to help you choose a deal

Happy Fathers Day!!
