With Father’s Day just around the corner, we’ve put together a short list of our best experience gifts in the UK, guaranteed to put a smile on your Dad’s face.
If you struggle to find the perfect gift for him every year, then your troubles are over – all you need to do is choose the type of package you want to buy, and we’ll send your Dad a stylish presentation box with his Tinggly voucher, and he can choose whatever he wants to do, whenever he wants to do it. The anticipation of an experience, and the happy memories associated with it, are why many people are now opting for this type of gift instead of a material present.
So if your Dad has a taste for the finer things in life, he might like to do some whisky tasting in Ireland or Scotland, or see a show in London’s West End, with dinner for two included. And if he has a taste for adrenaline, he could try racing an Aston Martin around a purpose-built track, or even a thrilling Microlighting lesson. We think that if you want to say “Thanks, Dad”, there’s no better way of showing you care.
Father’s Day gift ideas are easy with Tinggly, and because he gets to choose, satisfaction is guaranteed!
These fun and interesting tours takes in two of Dublin’s most popular visitor attractions, the former Jameson’s distillery in Bow Street, and the Guinness Storehouse at St. James Gate. Your Dad can learn all about the production processes involved, and of course there are several tastings, with the option to buy a few bottles to bring home if he wants. The views over Dublin from the Guinness bar are superb, and he can also enjoy a meal in the Jameson’s restaurant if he wants.
This gift experience in Southampton is a real blast. Sunseeker yachts are super-stylish, and super-powerful, with 600HP letting them reach speeds of up to 42 knots. Your Dad will have the chance to learn some basic navigation techniques, then take the controls himself for a while, as the yacht speeds across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. For the rest of the time, he can relax and enjoy the scenery, or get involved by helping out the crew.
If your Dad has ever shown an interest in learning to fly, he might like to give this exciting flight simulator a try. With a co-pilot alongside, he can have a go at taking off, steering and landing a 737 Jet Airliner in a range of weather conditions, even make cabin announcements – fasten seatbelts please. Best of all, the replica cabin allows family and friends to come along and enjoy the flight too.
The Shard is one of London’s most recognisable buildings, a stunning piece of architecture that offers sensational views over the capital. This gift experience not only includes a trip to the observation deck, 800ft up, by high-speed lift, but also lunch for two back on ground-level at one of London’s best Italian restaurants, just a short walk away.
While we’re in London, let’s talk about the world-famous theatre district, the West End. This fantastic Father’s Day gift idea lets him choose from many of London’s most beloved shows – with great seats of course. Before enjoying the performance though, there’s dinner for two at a superb West End restaurant – again your Dad can choose from a selection. The perfect evening out in the capital.
High above the Somerset landscape, your Dad can learn to fly a fantastic Flex Wing Microlight, of a type that has been used to fly over Mount Everest. He’ll be accompanied by a professional pilot (of course!) and enjoy unsurpassed 360-degree panoramas. This is a great introduction to a fast-growing hobby, and pretty exciting too when the pilot pulls a few maneuvers.
Does your Dad love James Bond movies, or have a liking for sportscars? If so, he’s going to love the chance to put a super-cool Aston Martin through its paces around a purpose-built track. The DB9 is a precision instrument, capable of 0-60mph in under 5 seconds. Full instruction is provided, and then you can watch your Dad as he hares around the circuit in a time trial. The best part of all is that this ultimate Father’s Day gift experience is available at locations around the country, so no need to travel too far.
