Our guide brings together a few things on offer from the area’s retailers, restaurants and venues, to help you share a little love and joy on and around Father’s Day this year.
Gift ideas available at high street favourites and at much-loved independents.
The perfect card ✉️
Like any special occassion, it all starts with picking up the perfect card.
A visit to somwhere like the Card Factory or WHSmith are great for picking up a great card or you could always take a trip to somewhere like Bird's Yard, All Good Stuff or the Sheffield Makers' Shop (inside the Winter Garden) for something just that little bit different.
Something for a sweet tooth 🍫
Fuel those long walks and heartfelt talks with chocolate boxes brimming with gloriously gooey caramels, tipsy truffles and deeply satisfying pralines.
Or why not surprise them with their own in-home, barista-grade drinking chocolate system: the Velvetiser™. Gift them a new addition to their curated drinks cabinet with the 'cacao depth and vodka warmth' in a bottle of Velvetised™ Cream.
And because the presentation is as important as the present – add the finishing touch with a range of ribbon-tied bags, elegant boxes and complimentary boxed chocolate gift sleeves.
The M&S 'whip off the old block' is made of 'creamy milk chocolate, soft fluffy mallow and salty, buttery caramel sauce'. Whether you buy one for your dad, grandad, or any father figure (or even just for yourself), it's guaranteed to bring an instant smile and we're pretty sure the chocolate won't last very long! 😋
