Find out what date Father’s Day is this year so you don’t leave buying a present until last minute.

Make sure you know when you need to spoil your Dad and let him put his feet up for the day.

Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday in June, so this year it is on June 17.

Unlike Mother’s Day the UK and USA celebrate Father’s Day on the same day.

Traditionally people give their Dad a card and a present to say thank you for all they do for them throughout the year.

The day which honours fathers and their influence in society has been celebrated for over 100 years.
