Father’s Day 2020, Sunday 21st June, and of course it’s a strange Father’s Day this year with Covid-19, lockdown and everything going on around us, changing by the day. Many people won’t be visiting loved ones year, which is very sad but sensible if they’re vulnerable and/or you are following self-isolation guidelines. Safety first, none of us want to be putting our parents or grandparents at risk!
So, given that many of us won’t physically be seeing our family, and many of us don’t really want to be going out shopping for gifts (plus many of our favourite shops are only just preparing to reopen), I thought I would write this post to help you with online ideas.
These are ideal gifts for the country-loving father’s in our life to show them they’re appreciated more than ever this year. Whether that’s your other half for being the best baby daddy, your father, your grandad (mine is called Pom-Pa because I couldn’t say anything else as baby!) or even your great grandfather!

FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #7: BLAKESLEY BROGUE
Denton’s Footwear have designed this stylish brogue which exemplifies the essence of Italian manufacture. My dad loves the Blakesley, he’s had them a few months now and really raves about the quality and comfort. They have a 10% Father’s Day discount online at the moment, using FATHERS10 at checkout. Denton’s Footwear feature in my May Rural Business blog where I discuss their boots!
FATHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #8: GUN HOLDER
The Sporting Hares Shotgun Holder is an innovation in shooting. The average weight of a shotgun is around 8lbs, bearing down on the arm or shoulder of the shooter throughout a shooting day. Their revolutionary shotgun holder is designed to take the weight off the shooter and free both hands, yet keep the gun at close hand for immediate use when required.
