Remember all those times you would fall asleep on the couch as a kid, your dad would carry you up the stairs, bump your head along the banisters on the way, and both of you would pretend not to notice?

That, ladies, is total love, and exactly why you need to show you dad how appreciated he is this Father’s Day.

Why not tell your dad you think he’s worth more than a box of pastel-coloured hankies by choosing a gift which represents those all-important moments you guys have shared down through the years?

Here’s the run-down!

1. Drinks with Dad

OK, we all know that the first drink you shared with your pops was by no means your first proper grown-up drink, but he doesn't need to know that.

Chances are he slipped you a sneaky tipple at a family wedding when you were 16 and told you ‘not to tell your mother’, so why not celebrate that adorable moment by splashing out on a whiskey gift set or Guinness gift box for the ol’ rogue!



2. That controversial curfew

Were your teenage years spent roaring about how embarrassing your curfew was compared to your mates'? Yeah, us too.

We plan to remind our dads of the importance they place on good time-keeping by springing for a stunning clock which they can watch with those hawk-eyes of theirs. (It WAS their favourite hobby back in the day, after all.)


3. Dining with Dad

We don’t know a single person who doesn’t have a classic ‘When Mum went away, Dad fed us this weird mixture of…” story, and that’s where the next top pick comes from!

Why not treat your pops to a selection of mouthwatering food and drink which he couldn’t seem to get his hands on when he was in charge all those times?

He’ll know EXACTLY what you’re getting at, believe us.



4. Bathroom battles

It didn’t matter what time of the day or night you might have decided to pamper yourself in the bathroom as a teen, you could be guaranteed your father would be found banging on the door within the first five minutes.

Be the bigger person and show him you’ve gotten over these traumas by splashing out on a pampering kit which he can use uninterrupted and to his heart’s content without a single peep out of you.



5. Driving with Dad

Dads and cars go hand-in-hand, right? From roaring that he’s ‘not a bloody taxi service’ to yelling at you for not knowing how to parallel park, some of our most ridiculous memories involve being in the car with our dad.

Show him you’ve always thought that he looked super-fly in the driving seat by treating him to a piece of art which he’ll pretend not to understand, but you know will soon become his prized possession.


All of these incredible gifts and much, much more can be found at Hampers &Co.

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly underway, and we're getting all hot and sweaty just thinking about the amount of Christmas shopping we have left to do.

With stormy weather to battle, crowded buses to navigate, and endless queues to face, we're considering forgoing shopping outdoors entirely.

If online shopping is sounding mighty tempting right about now, your first destination should be Hampers & Co, an Irish website offering everything from wine and chocolate Pamper Hampers to gifts with a difference for your dad.

To make the situation even sweeter, you can now get a 15% discount from Hampers & Co for a limited time, by using the code XMAS015 at the checkout. Boom!

Of course, not everyone in our gift-giving circle is quite so quick-thinking, and we've definitely received a few clangers over the years. Here are just a few of the gifts we've all put on that *fake smile* for…

1. The 'I bought this at 5pm on Christmas Eve' gift
There are two extremes here – the €10 Penneys PJs or the desperately expensive gold watch that was totally panic-bought.


2. The 'This is really for me, not you' gift
'Cos you've ALWAYS wanted an XBox, right?


3. The 'I saw this and thought of you' gift
Which of course begs the question, 'Why did a Weight Watchers cookery book make you think of me?'


4. The 'IOU one present' gift
This better come wrapped up with one huge apology.


5. The 'But you love handmade things!' gift
Sock puppets, our FAVE.


6. The 'All that was open was the 24-hour garage' gift
A selection box, windscreen washer fluid and a copy of today's newspaper – yay!


7. The 'Mary in HR said she loves this jewellery brand so I thought you would too' gift
Ah, Mary in HR, the gift-buying oracle.


8. The 'I'm giving something back this year' gift
Much as we love the fact that you're charitable, we really had our hearts set on a fancy new mascara. Sigh.

Avoid falling foul to one of the above this year, and get your Christmas shopping sorted with Hampers & Co. No more fake smiles!
