Annette's websites of the week

As its Father’s Day on Sunday I thought I’d share some websites that will give you a helping hand in making this year’s Father’s Day extra special- for every type of dad!

Moonpig Cards – Personalised greeting cards are a lovely way to say Happy Father’s Day. If you visit an online customising site such as www.moonpig.com there is lots of variety, everything from comical cards, sentimental cards, sports themed cards and even photo cards. Each greeting card can be edited specifically for your dad to add that extra special touch.

I’ve used Moonpig in the past and was really happy with the whole experience. Picking a card is really simple- search the Father’s Day card selection (or whatever occasion you’re looking for) and edit accordingly. I like to pick cards which allow me to use lots of photographs but chose a design that suits you and your dad best.

My top tip when using Moonpig is to ensure that you spell check any text which you edit as once the card is printed it can’t be changed. Additionally save postage costs by delivering the card directly to your dad’s address- simply select this option in the delivery process.

Final delivery for Father’s Day cards from Moonpig is 2pm today!

Red Letter DaysIf you want to treat your dad to an extra special day out then head to www.redletterdays.co.uk. Here you can purchase all sorts of days out, which will be a brilliant surprise for Father’s Day.

Red Letter Days have something for everyone so if your dad’s a fan of sports why not buy a tour of Wembley Stadium or a master class golf lesson. If like my husband, Alan, your dad is a car fanatic, then check out the driving experiences where dads can drive at Silverstone in a Ferrari or Lamborghini, and if your dad has a head for heights how about a Hot Air Balloon ride? The options are endless so it’s sure to be a Father’s Day gift that he won’t forget.

The best thing about a Red Letter Day gifts is that you don’t have to decide on a date when you purchase the experience. So you can give your dad his Red Letter Gift on Sunday and then organise a date to go motor facing, hot air balloon riding etc… whenever is convenient for both of you- most experiences let spectators go along and watch so you get a day out too.

Audible.co.uk –  Earlier in the week I blogged about audiobooks and how they have been revived thanks to modern technology. Now you can download audiobook onto smartphones and iPods which makes listening to stories easier than ever before.

Audiobooks with http://www.audible.co.uk

If your dad loves to read but can’t because he’s too busy or finds reading text in a book too much of a strain then why not load your iPod or smartphone will a selection of audiobooks for Father’s Day. The website www.audible.co.uk has a huge selection of books (classics, new books and best sellers) which are affordable (around £3.99 each) and can be uploaded onto a device in seconds!

Using audiobooks as a gift is a great way of encourage dads to get back into literature, especially if he’s had to stop reading because of old age or poor eye sight. And it’s a fantastic way to get older dads to use gadgets such as iPods. I’d love to know if you like this idea so please do leave a comment below!
