Making Father’s Day Extra Special with Tesco’s #TannoyTakeover

With Father’s Day a matter of weeks away, it has got me thinking about what to get for my dad. Not only that, but my father-in-law (let’s face it, the husband isn’t the best at remembering to get gifts), and then, of course, a gift for my husband, on behalf of the kids. So I need to get thinking about what to get them, so they don’t all just end up with a petrol station card and a new pair of socks last minute! Father’s Day gifts are something that I do struggle to choose, though; what do you get the men that say they have everything they need?

This past weekend I planned an early Father’s Day surprise for my own dad, with the help of the lovely team at Tesco. This Father’s Day (18th June), Tesco is helping all of their customers show appreciation to their dads with their in-store Tannoy Takeovers. I thought it would be the perfect way to publicly thank my dad for all that he has done for my family and all that he continues to do. He really is extremely hard working. We even had to drag him away from doing DIY to get him to his local Tesco store! He just never stops.

I think that doing a Tannoy Takeover for your dad is such a fantastic idea, it is something really unexpected. It is also perfect to surprise your dad with, alongside a more traditional Father’s Day gift. Knowing that you’ve taken the time to think about them can mean a lot. I know I personally prefer it when people have really thought about me and what I might like as a gift. And being a parent myself, I can’t think of a gift better than gratitude, especially when it is from your own children.

It can take a little planning, but you’ve still got time to do your own Tannoy Takeover in time for the Father’s Day weekend in two weeks. So if you want to surprise your dad with a small Father’s Day surprise to thank your dad and make their Father’s Day extra special, you can visit to record your message to your dad. Then you need to plan a time to surprise him at either his or your Tesco local store. The Tannoy Takeovers are only available on Saturday 17th June and Sunday 18th June (actual Father’s Day) at selected stores.

The added bonus is that after the two of you have heard the message being played over the tannoy, you can head over to the customer service desk and a dedicated Tannoy Takeover colleague will have a £10 gift card waiting for you to treat your dad. Because at the end of the day, our dad’s still deserve a little gift too, right?

Have you got anything planned yet for Father’s Day? Do you think your dad would love this kind of message?
