Picking the perfect present for Dad on Father’s Day can be somewhat of a difficult task, particularly as lockdown restrictions are still in place! Whatever his preferences, there’s a business in the City Centre who has everything needed to gift your Dad a great present or experience out to make him feel truly appreciated this Father’s Day on Sunday 21 June.

For beer lovers:

Although it might be some time until we can enjoy a beverage at our favourite bars, Bottlecraft, a favourite among real ale enthusiasts, are open for collections. Pop in for draft off-sales and free click and collect orders of bottles and cans made through the webstore. Prefer not to venture out? Their online store stocks a wide variety of ales, as well as wine, spirits and soft drinks – all of which can be ordered for free delivery (if order is over £30 – order values below that is just £5) to addresses in ST1-ST9 areas.

For music moguls:

Rubber Soul Records haven’t reopened their doors yet BUT you can still get your hands on record bundles via local deal website wegetadeal.com at the fabulous price of £13.99 for 2 LP records.

The Sugarmill are also busy rescheduling shows that unfortunately had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, and you can purchase tickets for these via their website.

Finally, Sugarmill have teamed up with local artists at Entrepreneurs Network to release a cool new line of merchandise. Buying their merch means not only will your Dad be looking cool in new threads, you’ll be supporting local indie venues and businesses through this difficult time! Take a look here.

For the shoppers:

Intu Potteries are reopening their shopping centre on 15 June, so if your Dad enjoys a good shopping spree, consider gifting him an intu Potteries gift card. Purchase from the centre or online here. It can be used in all of his favourite shops like Scotts, Tessuti, Menkind, Debenhams, Game, and more.

For afternoon tea advocates:

You can still celebrate even if you have to isolate! The Quarter have introduced a new Father’s Day Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea option to their delivery and collection website. It’s a perfect gift to send to all those wonderful dads and grandads or to enjoy at home with your family. It’s limited delivery and collection slots available so best to place your order as soon as possible here

For the foodies;
