Something to know about Celebrate Father's Day in the UK

Father’s Day is celebrated around the world on the third Sunday in June.

In the UK, people spent over £44m on Father’s Day cards in 2021, sending 21 million cards to their Dad’s on their special day. (According to the Greeting Card Association’s 2022 Annual Market Report, with 87% of consumers saying that they plan to send the same or more Father’s Day cards in the future according to the Greeting Card Association Consumer Survey Report conducted in the summer of 2021).

Father’s Day is now an established calendar event where we annually remember and celebrate our Dad’s.  The UK population is a nation of card senders – sending more cards per capita than any other nation.

The UK greeting card market bounced back in 2021 after the disruption to retail sales due COVID-19 lockdowns. Both volume and value were up 11% compared to 2020.

Histories Celebrate Father's Day

The origin of the British Mother’s Day can be traced back to the 17th century, however the roots of Father’s Day go back to early 20th century America: In 1910 a Washington woman, Mrs JB Dodd, asked for a sermon on the value of fathers, her own having raised six children after the death of their mother.

Shortly afterwards her wish for a permanent date to be set aside became reality when President Woodrow Wilson designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.

British Tradition of Greeting Card Sending

Greeting cards have played an increasing important part in British communication since the first Christmas card was sent in 1843 by Sir Henry Cole. Card sending in the UK increased dramatically in the early 20th century, with cards playing a particularly important role in communication during the two world wars.

Father’s Day cards grew in popularity following the post-war increase in greeting card sending in the UK. Cards increasingly became the chosen way to mark special occasions, express sympathy and just say Thinking of You. Scientific research undertaken in 2017 by Royal Mail demonstrated the impact of receiving a greeting card. Greeting cards are precious links to loved ones that are often kept for many years as reminders of relationships at any period in time, as one Dad demonstrated sharing a card he’d kept from his now-grown-up son.

Greeting cards are a world-leading British Creative industry; they send more cards per capita than any other nation, and lead the world in innovation and design, exporting our cards all over the world.

Cards are a good tangible way of keeping in touch and mean more than social media messages which are sent all the time. 18-34 year olds sending more cards than a generation ago.
