Father’s Day email examples

Now that we have the subject lines taken care of, what do we put in the email itself? Some companies take this opportunity to promote their products outright. But that might not work. Then what? Try...

1. Spreading emotions — HARRY’S

Everything we have in our lives, we owe to our parents. Those lucky of us had a great childhood due to these people. We all cherish and celebrate moms for care, support and delicious dinners. While fathers stuck in our memories as someone we had a lot of fun with. They taught us to play basketball, baseball, ride a bicycle, and gave hundreds of tips on how to build relations with boys/girls.

Then why not get really creative and design an emotional Father’s Day newsletter for your customers?

In this promo, HARRY’S reminds us of the sweetest memories from our childhood. This Father’s Day email brought me memories of those happy holidays I had with my family, of my father doing his best to make me smile and laugh. 

Of course, such photos make us want to get the best present for our dads. 

2. Sharing ideas — Red Tricycle

3. Being useful — Freeosk

Can you imagine a Father’s day without old dad jokes? However, most of these jokes are forgotten.

Remind your customers about the fun times they had with their fathers. 

One thing to do before you start your Father’s Day email campaign

Many of us know Chubbies for their unique style, unique design, and a very interesting manner of communicating with customers.

I knew them as a brand that brings lots of fun. But their email dedicated to the aforementioned holiday really touched my heart — they asked all those for whom Mother and Father’s Days are a sensitive subject to opt-out of dedicated newsletters.

Indeed, why not let users skip these emails if they, for some reason, are not going to celebrate this wonderful, yet very delicate holiday?

Final thoughts

To build a perfect, powerful, interesting, and effective Father’s Day email campaign, ask yourself — if your email would convince you to get a present for your dad, or would it convince you to go visit him on this day. And if the answer is “Yes”, then your email is ready to rock!
