As of now, the Phase Two heightened alert measures end on 13 June. Which means that with any luck, we can celebrate Father’s Day 2021 on 20 June with fewer restrictions. But for those who prefer staying home for a while longer, we’ve put together a list of gift ideas and takeaway feasts so you can pamper the best man in your life with all he deserves.
