Father's Day 2024: Father's Day is a cherished occasion dedicated to celebrating the invaluable role fathers and father figures play in our lives. It's a day to honour their love, sacrifices and guidance. As Father's Day 2024 approaches this Sunday, let's delve into the date, history, and some thoughtful gift ideas and heartfelt wishes to make this day truly special.

Date of Father's Day 2024


In 2024, Father's Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 16. This date falls on the third Sunday of June, which is the traditional day for Father's Day in many countries, including the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Mark your calendars and start planning to ensure your father feels appreciated and loved.

History of Father's Day

The history of Father's Day dates back over a century. The idea of a special day to honour fathers was first proposed in the United States. The most widely accepted story of its origins involves a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd. Inspired by Mother's Day, Sonora sought to create a similar day to honour fathers. She was particularly motivated by her own father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran who raised six children as a single parent.

In 1910, Sonora approached the Spokane Ministerial Alliance in Washington state with her idea. They supported her, and the first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane on June 19, 1910. Despite its early beginnings, Father's Day did not become an official national holiday until 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed a proclamation recognising it.


Gift Ideas for Father's Day 2024

Choosing the perfect gift for Father's Day can be a delightful yet challenging task. Here are some thoughtful gift ideas to show your appreciation and love:

Personalised Gifts: Customised items such as engraved watches, monogrammed wallets, or personalised photo albums can make for meaningful and memorable gifts.

Gadgets and Tech: If your dad is a tech enthusiast, consider gifts such as smartwatches, wireless earbuds or the latest gadgets that can make his life easier and more enjoyable.

Experience Gifts: Sometimes, the best gift is an experience. Plan a special day out, such as a fishing trip, a golf outing, or tickets to a concert or sports event. Creating memories together can be more valuable than any material gift.

Subscription Services: A subscription to his favourite magazine, streaming service, or even a monthly box of gourmet snacks or coffee can be a gift that keeps on giving.

Hobby-Related Gifts: Consider gifts that align with his hobbies and interests. Whether it's a set of new golf clubs, fishing gear, or tools for his DIY projects, he'll appreciate the thoughtfulness behind a gift that caters to his passions.

Books and Reading Material: If your father loves to read, a collection of books by his favourite author or a subscription to an audiobook service can be a wonderful gift.

Health and Wellness: Show you care about his well-being with gifts such as a fitness tracker, a massage chair, or a set of high-quality vitamins and supplements.
