Show your dad some loving with a Wicklow Naturally Father’s Day 2020
BY SANTINA KENNEDY
This Sunday, June 21, is Father’s Day and here’s a guide as to how you can have a Wicklow Naturally Father’s Day.
Even though we may not be able to mark the occasion this year, as we usually do, we can still find lots of beautiful food and drink gifts in Wicklow to make sure dad feels appreciated.
Never has it been more crucial to support local businesses as it is now so thanks to the wide variety of offers from our Wicklow Naturally members there is no shortage of ways to say Happy Father’s Day.
Food and drink make the perfect gifts for everyone and our members have been highlighting some of their special Father’s Day offers. Have a look at justsome of the vast selection of amazing products produced here in The Garden of Ireland.
If your dad loves to barbeque, why not treat him to some Wagyu Beef from Ridgeway Farm? They are offering a Striploin Wagyu Steak Box or a Celebrate Wagyu Burger Box. Premium Irish Wagyu Beef can be delivered to your Dad’s door. It’s tender, juicy and delicious! From their farm to your fork. Check availability and order at the Ridgeway Wagyu Online Shop
And how about some tasty barbecue relishes to go with that beef! The Birds and the Teas are offering six lovely jars for €25 including Smoky BBQ sauce, Tomato and Chilli Relish and their Limited Edition Sweet Pickle – a perfect topping for any barbecue dish! Alternatively, choose any seven of their chutneys, relishes or jams to suit individual tastes. The gift bags of seven can be delivered to your door on Friday in East Wicklow/Dublin or posted for €30. Visit the Birds & The Teas website for more details.
If you would like the perfect chocolate to go with that whiskey, Rhoda Cocoa recommends the Whiskey Caramel and Smoked Almond Bar. Rhoda says: “This bar is a luxurious study in sophistication and subtlety. Malty morsels of whiskey caramel and smoked almonds, touched with salt, meet delectably bitter 70 per cent dark chocolate. It makes for an exquisite dance of flavours that’s best relished with a glass of your favourite whiskey.” Chocolate always makes a great gift but a gift of Rhoda Cocoa will make your dad feel extra special.
