For many who live away from their parents, the past year, with its restrictions on who you can see might have been difficult.

However Father’s Day this year will be a much happier event, now that rules have been relaxed enough to allow loved ones to meet up – meaning people can spend some quality time with their dads or father-figures.

Here’s when Father’s Day 2021 is and how you can make your dad’s day with a personalised card…

When is Father’s Day 2020?

You’ve still got time to get Pop the perfect present – Father’s Day falls on Sunday 20 June this year.

 It takes place on the third Sunday in June every year.

Unlike Mother’s Day, which is celebrated on a different date, Father’s Day falls on the same day in the US and Canada as it does in the United Kingdom.

Father’s Day is one day before England is supposed to hit its final date in the government’s roadmap for easing lockdown and lifting restrictions – although doubt has been cast on whether restrictions will ease on June 21, with growing concerns over the surge in cases of the Indian Covid-19 variant.

That said, you should still be able to spend time with your dad on the big day, as household mixing and overnight stays are now permitted in England, while restaurants have reopened both indoors and outdoors.

Where to buy personalised cards online

If you live too far away to meet, or you still don’t want to chance it, you can send a personalised card from the comfort of your home.Websites like Moonpig, Thortful and Funky Pigeon will allow you to choose the perfect card for your Dad, or make your own using photos you can upload.

Both sites suggest giving yourself extra time to ensure the card arrives on time due to increased demand, so order as soon as possible to be safe.

Other ways to send something include Bloom and Wild, if you want to send flowers with the optional extras of a card and chocolates.

Place your order before 10pm Monday-Friday and you’ll qualify for Free Next-Day Delivery, though you might want to order ahead of time to ensure a delivery slot in time for Father’s Day, as they’re likely to fill up.

Keep It is another option that will let you personalise a range of gifts, including beer glasses, photo frames and more.

They state on their website that they can ensure a speedy delivery service that will get you or your dad his gift in 1-2 working days.

Etsy offer a great selection, though the personalised items can sometimes take longer to manufacture so get your orders in sooner rather than later.  

Delivery times differ depending on each individual seller.
