Our Father's Day Plans & A Fun Quiz ♥

Father's Day is happening on June 19th, the day that our little Beau turns one month old and considering that this Father's Day will be Jacek's first as a father of two I'd like to do something special for him.

Jacek is the typical man who has everything and I always struggle to find gifts for him - seriously, why are men always hard to buy for? Something he really loves is visiting new places and anytime we travel he likes to plan trips to historic sites, etc. so I find that experience based gifts are perfect for him.

We've been wanting to go to The Burren in Co. Clare for ages now, it's a place we've never been to together so we'd like to visit and photograph all the wild flowers and beautiful scenery there. I think a road trip there or to Cahir Castle in Co. Tipperary - Jacek has recently said he'd like to visit here and Swiss Cottage again, would be the best treat the boys and I could give him. Making memories with his boys is much better than any gift I could get him, as they usually go unused and I honestly can't think of a lovelier plan for Father's Day, especially if the weather stays as great as it has been. Also, I have yet to take any pictures of Jacek and Beau together and I couldn't imagine a more beautiful backdrop than these places.

So I'll be filling up the car with petrol, packing a picnic and we'll be off on a little adventure. I know Jacek will appreciate it more than any gift I could give him from the boys - although I think we might have to get him a bottle of prosecco to enjoy in the garden on some warm, sunny day too.

Have you any special plans for your child/children's father for Father's Day?

With Father's Day coming up, My Voucher Codes have put together a fun quiz to see which celebrity dad your other half is. Jacek had a go and got Ashton Kutcher - I can't complain about that! Why not have a go yourself and see which celebrity dad you're most like. Just click on the quiz below to find out.



  1. Haven't really had the chance to plan Father's Day this year, though I have a feeling my husband might not even have the time to do something nice. He is just swamped with work :(

  2. oh I hope fathers day is fun for your family. We are spending the day at home but taking John and Sylvia to legoland the day before. A kind of fathers day and daughters treat in one! :) Angela from Daysinbed

  3. Hehe, I'll have to get Anthony to give the quiz a go! I dread Father's Day because it's so difficult to buy for - especially now I get the added responsibility of buying something for Anthony's dad too. x

  4. I wont be with my Dad but it sounds as though you have got a fab day planned x

  5. I have completely forgot it’s Father's Day this month. I had better start looking for the perfect Father's Day present before it's too late.

  6. Aw lovely I hope he enjoys spending time as a father of two and cant believe that Beau is already a month old, time has gone so quickly xx

  7. Father's Day for my husband is the same day as his birthday!!! I better think of a great gift! Eeeeeeeek

  8. I can't believe it is Fathers day soon! It's come by so quickly!

  9. We haven't planned anything for Father's Day yet, so we better start planning soon! :)

  10. What a great idea! Hope three of you will have a fantastic day!

  11. A great idea for a picnic, hope the weather stays dry for you. Sadly my hubby is working :0(
