It’s two weeks until Father’s Day and if this pandemic has taught me anything, it’s how much I miss my dad’s hugs! So this Father’s Day I’m considering a gift he’ll really love. Now, obviously I can’t tell you which one I’m getting as within the two weeks of Father’s Day (Sunday 21st June btw) he might just figure out how to search for the blog and bobs your uncle, the surprise is ruined.

The Cheese Board | £35.00
The Cheese Board in the centre of Harrogate was a brilliant gift for any dad who loves a bit of cheese. In fact, I purchased the Individual Cheese Gift Hamper form my Dad’s birthday during lock down. The great thing was they also delivered it!
The Individual Cheese Gift Hamper includes:
- Black Bomber 200g
- Wensleydale with Apricot 200g

Uniquely Local Axe Throwing at Ripley | £60.00
It’s throwing big axes for an hour – what’s not to love! Thought a local company that has many other fantastic gift ideas, you can book an axe throwing experience for your Dad to take out any pent-up frustration, boy will he need it during lockdown.
A Yorkshire Print | £25.00
Something a little different now, as you can’t throw it or eat it. Well, you could try but I don’t recommend it.
If your dad is anything like mine – a proper Yorkshireman through and through, this is for him. I love this print featuring that famous Yorkshire phrase ‘Tha’ can allus tell a Yorkshireman but tha’ can’t tell ‘im much’.
The Weekend Factory | Starting at £7.00
The Weekend Factory has been set up by Mrs Smith’s Café and works in partnership with many Harrogate independents. They have some extremely cool things lined up for Father’s Day…
With Dad at the very heart they have a fully themed Star Wars Crafternoon Tea with themed treats and an optional craft pack from The Creation Station.
For the dads that have eyes bigger than their stomach then Big Daddy Afternoon Tea is the one to order with a pork pie, sausage roll, scotch egg, a turkey and stuffing sandwich, mini cheese board, loaded brownie and a Father’s Day cupcake – he’ll be one happy daddy!
The Weekend Factory also provide Family Night Out-In meal kits feature Yorkshire and northern favourites, chicken parmo (Niki will be pleased), Yorkshire pudding wraps and curry kits. You can also add on the craft kits and afternoon activities to keep everyone busy.
Deliveries are Thurs- Sunday and you’ll need to pre-order at least 48 hours in advance. Order as soon as you can, especially the Afternoon Teas – they often sell out! Afternoon Teas are £13.50 for adults and £7 for kids, with discounts if you order for more than one person!
