This year, Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 18th, and people all around the world will be celebrating in their own unique ways. From a simple phone call to an elaborate gift, there are many ways to show your dad that you love him on this special day. It's important to remember that Father's Day is not just about material gifts, but about the sentiment behind them. A heartfelt message or a simple gesture of appreciation can go a long way in showing your dad how much you love and value him.

Who can I send a card to on Father’s Day?

Father's Day is a special day to celebrate and honour all the amazing father figures in our lives. It's a day to show appreciation for their hard work, sacrifices, and unconditional love. While most people tend to think of sending Father's Day cards to their own dads, there are many other recipients who would appreciate a thoughtful card to recognise their role as a father figure. Here are some different recipients you can send Father's Day cards to:

First-time dads:

Becoming a father for the first time is a life-changing experience. It can be both exciting and overwhelming, and new dads often need all the encouragement and support they can get. Sending a Father's Day card to a first-time dad is a great way to show that you recognise and appreciate their new role. Here are some messages you could write in a Father's Day card for a first-time dad:

• "Congratulations on becoming a dad! Wishing you a happy first Father's Day."

• "You're going to be an amazing dad. Happy Father's Day!"

• "Watching you become a father has been such a joy. I'm so proud of you. Happy Father's Day!"


Sons who are fathers:

As our children grow up and become parents themselves, it's a wonderful thing to see them embrace their new role as a father. Sending a Father's Day card to your son who is now a dad is a great way to show that you're proud of the father he has become. Here are some messages you could write in a Father's Day card for your son who is a dad:

• "I'm so proud of the father you've become. Happy Father's Day, son!"

• "Watching you with your own children fills my heart with joy. Happy Father's Day!"

• "Seeing you as a dad has been one of the greatest joys of my life. Happy Father's Day, son!"


Grandfathers play an important role in many families. They often provide guidance, support, and love to their grandchildren, and are cherished members of the family. Sending a Father's Day card to your grandfather is a wonderful way to show him that you appreciate his love and wisdom. Why not try one of our pop-up grandfather cards?

Father figures:

Father's Day isn't just for biological fathers. It's also a day to recognise and honour the other important father figures in our lives, such as stepfathers, uncles, and family friends. Why not help your furry friend to show their appreciation to their pet parent this year? Regardless of who it’s for, sending a Father's Day card to a special father figure is a great way to show that you appreciate their love and support. Here are some messages you could write in a Father's Day card for a special father figure:

• "Thank you for always being there for me like a father. Happy Father's Day!"
