So it’s nearly that time of year again, when we get to appreciate the favourite men in our lives. If you’re looking for fathers day gift ideas which are a little different and support local business then read on for my suggestions. 

The gift of a visit to a local brewery

We are spoilt for choice with a fantastic range of local breweries, including:

Or for something slightly different, we also have Puddingstone gin distillery who run a variety of events 

The gift of the outdoors

The Ashridge Estate is free to visit, but have you considered buying National Trust membership? Buying it locally means your membership fee is spent protecting and improving our local area. 

The gift of photography

Does the man in your life own a camera? Do they want to learn how to use it to take better photos? Little Duckling Photography courses run evening and weekend photography courses for beginners in Berkhamsted. Find out more Gift vouchers are available. 

The gift of home

There are so many gorgeous shops selling unique and gorgeous gifts for the home locally. Our favourites include:

The gift of a photoshoot

Do you have family photos displayed on your wall? Maybe now is the time. Fathers day photoshoots are available. Photoshoots cost £69 for a 30 minute mini shoot, and £139 for a 1 – 2 hour full shoot. Please get in touch for details. 

Whatever you decide to do to celebrate fathers day, remember the most important thing is to spend time with those we love.
