This week I cornered several people who work in Truro and asked what they are planning to give for Father’s Day. The responses included beer (popular answer), a trendy shirt, music, or just a big fat hug! Whatever the perfect present for your dad, Truro has an amazing selection of gifts for Father’s Day.
The Red Elephant Beer Cellar has an incredible range of beers from the UK and around the world. You are spoilt for choice when choosing Dad a brew. Also, The Cornish Food Box, stocks a fine variety of specialist drinks ranging from cordials to gin – all produced locally.
The Scentstore, in Cathedral Lane has a broad range of men’s aftershave and fragrances, from firm favourites to the latest smellys! They also offer a free wrapping service to make your gift look extra special.
When I was a little girl, I always liked the smell of my Dad’s face after he had had a shave. The Body Shop is a great place to buy traditional men’s shaving brushes and foam if you think that is what will make your dad feel special!
The soft leather wallets and briefcases in Cascade, Pydar Mews is a real indulgence and struck me as the perfect gift. I also thought, perhaps music or a DVD from HMV or Music Nostalgia would also make a great present (as long as you knew what they wanted!).
Inhabit sells mugs, where you can personalise your own Father’s Day mug. Their display included, the all essential man tin, as well as slate clocks, tomato ketchup and maps, (where Dad can indicate where he has travelled) – all original gift ideas!
Whirlwind Sports offers plenty of Father’s Day’s gifts, ranging from fashionable shirts, trendy T-shirts to rugby jerseys. Maybe Dad would like to come and choose his gift with you and get those fresh new running trainers.
Finally, if you are looking for a tasty gifts, Halzephron can help you find a mouth watering chutney, fiery mustard or zingy marmalade. Also, the Tourist Information Office has a great selection of little gifts. Chocolate is a fantastic gift for Father’s Day – he might even share some with you! There are many specialist chocolate brands to choose from. Have a peak at the counter at Midtown Deli or Uneeka! Finally the most important thing to do on Father’s Day is to give Dad a hug and spend time together – maybe a meal out in Truro….
