Next Sunday, 21st of June, is Father's Day in the UK
, and to celebrate all things 'Dad' we thought we would rummage through our ranges of walking sticks and canes to compile a selection that would make the ideal gift for Father's Day
This is no small task, as tastes change from person to person, but we have chosen a range that is both functional and stylish, and we are sure these walking canes will provide a great deal of enjoyment and use for years to come. Afterall, we all want to purchase a gift that will last the course, and one that will be used rather than buying a gift that will just lie there in a cupboard for years to come!
I have split our selection of gift ideas into three broad 'types' - these are outdoors
. The outdoors stick will be ideal for those fathers out there who enjoy long walks in the countryside, the novelty cane will be for the many dads out there who like a gift that is useful but also quirky - a cane with a 'twist'! And, finally, our collectors canes will be ideal for anyone who is a walking stick hobbyist, and enjoys collecting unusual canes.
We hope our selection this week provides you with some ideas for Father's Day, and if you would like to explore our ranges further, be sure to check out our categories at the Stick and Cane Shop
