With Father’s Day just over a week away, if you’re anything like me, you’re currently on the lookout for the perfect way to say a huge thank you to the men in your life.
In the UK Father’s Day always falls on the third Sunday of June, but across the globe, including the Nordic countries, it’s celebrated at very different times of the year. In Sweden, Finland and Norway for example it’s always in November, while in Denmark it was earlier this week, June 5th, to coincide with Constitution Day.
The two events combined back in 1935. It was also on this date in 1915 that Danish women were given the vote.
Unfortunately for my husband it isn’t tradition here (yet) to spend the day listening to political speeches on the state of the government, but it is a day for my little boy and I to show him, along with Grandad and Grandpa, just how much we love and appreciate them.
So to help all my fellow Nordic lifestyle addicts I’ve put together a little gift guide, some are design classics that will last a lifetime, others will add a touch of hygge to the everyday.
