Why do we celebrate Father's Day?
Father's Day is a special occasion celebrated around the world, although the exact date may vary depending on the country. It is a day dedicated to honouring fathers and the influence they have on their children and on society as a whole. Father's Day is an opportunity to recognise the unique bond fathers have with their children and to show appreciation for the countless ways they enrich our lives. From providing guidance and support to sharing life lessons and creating lasting memories, fathers play a crucial role in our development. On Father's Day, we take time to celebrate and thank these extraordinary men for all they do.
How to choose the perfect Father's Day gift?
Choosing the perfect Father's Day gift can be a challenge, but it doesn't have to be. Start by thinking about your father's personality, interests and tastes. Is he a foodie who appreciates new culinary experiences? Perhaps a selection of premium spice mixes or a bottle of our high-quality olive oil would be an excellent choice. If he is a connoisseur of spirits, a personalised bottle of his favourite liquor would make an unforgettable gift. Most importantly, choose a gift that comes from the heart and shows that you have put time and effort into thinking about what he would really appreciate.

Tips for choosing the perfect Father's Day gift
Choosing the perfect Father's Day gift does not have to be stressful. Here are some tips to help you:
- Think about his interests: Is your dad a beer lover? Maybe he would appreciate a personalised beer package. Does he love to cook? A set of premium spice mixes or olive oil could be a hit.
- Make it personal: Personalised gifts show that you made an effort to find something special. This can be as simple as a bottle of his favourite liquor with his name on it.
- Choose something he wouldn't buy for himself: Sometimes the best gifts are the things we wouldn't give ourselves. A luxurious hand soap or an organic scented candle could be just the indulgence your dad didn't know he needed.
- Consider the experience: A gift doesn't have to be just an object - it can also be an experience. A bottle of his favourite liquor, for example, is not just a drink, but an experience to be enjoyed and shared.

Antwerp Father's Day falls earlier
Throughout Belgium and the rest of the world, Father's Day falls on the second Sunday in June. Except in Antwerp. There, they stick to March 19. The reason for that difference is religious. 19 March is the name day of St Joseph, the father of Jesus, a figure of some standing in the Christian faith. Other historically Catholic countries, such as Spain and Portugal, have celebrated Father's Day on that day as long as 1479 for the same reason.
History of father's day
For the very first Father's Day gift and thus the history behind Father's Day, we have to go to 1909, shortly after the US Civil War. At that time, a certain Mrs Sonora Smart Dodd lived and she admired the heroic deeds that her father - and by extension all fathers - had done during the war to such an extent that she felt it was appropriate to have a holiday in return. Especially considering the hard work the men of the house did to put bread on the table and wood in the fireplace.
Locally, her initiative caught on nicely. In her hometown of Spokane, families celebrated the first official Father's Day on 19 June 1910. Father Dodd's birthday. So the first Father's Day gift was in fact a village celebration. Those who want to be authentic know the bar is set. Around the 1960s, the tradition of giving a Father's Day gift every second Sunday in June blew over to Europe, where, admittedly, a different kind of Father's Day already existed in most countries. Some stuck to that, others switched to the new date and still others felt a Father's Day could be added.
Surprise your father with a luxury gift
Fathers deserve to be spoiled, and Father's Day is the perfect occasion to do so. Treat your dad to a truly luxurious gift that will make his day extra special. Maybe he loves a good glass of whisky after a long day. A personalised bottle of our premium whisky would then be an excellent choice. Or maybe he enjoys the simple luxury of a high-quality hand soap or an organic scented candle. Whatever his taste, a luxury gift shows that you appreciate him and have taken the time to choose something special for him.
Unique Father's Day gifts for the dad who has everything
We all know that father who seems to have what he needs or wants. Finding the perfect Father's Day gift for such a father can be tricky, but not impossible. Think outside the box and choose something he might not buy for himself, but would appreciate. A set of our exclusive balsamic vinegar and olive oil, for example, would be a real treat for a dad who loves to cook. Or perhaps a personalised non-alcoholic drink would surprise and delight him. The important thing is to choose a gift that reflects his personality and taste, even if he already "has everything".
Make Father's Day 2024 even more special with a personalised gift
There is something special about receiving a gift that is made just for you. A personalised gift adds an extra layer of thoughtfulness and care to your Father's Day surprise. From a personalised bottle of his favourite drink to a set of our hand soaps with his name on them, a personalised gift is a wonderful way to show your dad how much you care. It's not just the gift itself that counts, but also the effort and thoughtfulness you've put into it. A personalised gift is a tangible reminder of the special bond you share and a way to show your father how much he means to you.
