Yesterday, we rounded up the best gifts for Father's Day. Today, it's all about the activity days.

Activity day presents allow the person to choose when and where they experience a new skill, hobby or a simple relaxed meal. And they can be perfect for someone who has just about everything.

So if you like the idea of broadening Dad's cultural horizons, here are a few suggestions, some normal and some unusual.

Drive a Porsche for the day

Got a James Bond wannabe in the house? This Virgin Experience will let you take a Porsche 911 for a few spins around the track. Buy it online from Woolworths for £70.

Spy Academy

Following on from the 007 theme, Red Letter Days have a Spy Academy where you can learn how to take part in unarmed combat and surveillance techniques. It's reduced from £99 to £48.

Get pampered

Metrosexual Dad might appreciate a day at a spa, enjoying a facial to tame shaving rash, a relaxing shoulder massage or even a 'man'-icure. have a couple of packages, and Wahanda has a few 2-in-1 days too if you want two happy and relaxed parents.

Tour of a famous sporting stadium

At the budget end of the experiences spectrum is the tour of a famous sporting stadium. Choose from Manchester, Arsenal or Fulham for football, or Twickenham or Silverstone. They're only £35.
