Once again Father’s Day is just around the corner; I’m not sure about you but I find men increasingly difficult to buy gifts for! I mean, do they want something they want, or something they need? And what do you buy the man that has everything? Food gifts? Grooming gifts? Useful gifts? Personalised gifts?…
Luckily for you (and me!), an array of Father’s Day gift ideas are covered below!
Food & drink gifts
These DC Super Heroes jelly beans from Jelly Belly are the perfect little treat for all of the super-dad’s out there! Shimmering and shiny versions of six popular flavours are included in these 60g bags; berry blue, blueberry, cream soda, sour lemon, very cherry, and wild blackberry.
Organic premium Czech lager – RRP £2.29, available from various online retailers
For the Dad who loves a tipple every now & then, CELIA organic Czech lager could be a well received gift. Being brewed using just three ingredients, it’s easy to know exactly what goes into it. Including 100% locally sourced organic Saaz hops, it also has the benefit of being vegan and gluten free. A delicious refreshing lager with a delicate bitterness and a hint of citrus.
The Snaffling Pig Co.
Flavoured pork crackling – RRP from £1.75, available from Snaffling Pig and various other high street retailers
I think pork scratchings are like Marmite – you either love them or hate them! But if your dad is a lover of them, then one of these gift jars would make a great gift. Or you could make up a porky hamper with individual bags of different flavours including BBQ, salt ‘n’ vinegar, habanero, salted, maple, and mustard! There are plenty of gift sets to choose from over on the site, too.
GrabTab – RRP £7.95, available from Speck
The GrabTab from Speck is super useful for those Dads that are always on the go. The unique yet simple design provides a secure hold on your phone without being bulky like similar products, as it cam be flattened down when not in use. It also doubles up as a stand for watching videos. The GrabTab comes in almost 100 designs in 8 different collections, so I’m sure you’ll find something to suit!
Personalised Polar Bear & Me socks – RRP £13.99, available from Getting Personal
If you’re after a cute but personal gift, then look no further than these personalised polar bear & me socks, the perfect Father’s Day gift from Getting Personal! You can choose to have 1 or 2 baby polar bears, and they come in two sizes (male size 7-11 or female size 4-7). The printing on these is raised rather than just imprinted in the sock so they are just that bit more special.
Nike Heritage backpack – RRP £27, available from Mainline Menswear
This Nike Heritage backpack in the fashionable green colour could be the perfect gift for the active Dad in your life. Whether it’s used for work, for the gym, or general day-to-day life. It features a large inner compartment with three smaller zipped pockets for those items where quicker, easier access is needed. Finished off with the trademark Nike Swoosh.
322GW dash cam – RRP £99, available from Nextbase
I think this Nextbase dash cam could be one of the most useful gifts out there! More and more car insurers nowadays are using having a dash cam as a way for lower premiums. The 322GW model is the world’s first dash cam to connect to your phone via Bluetooth for a more convenient way to view footage and send easily to the owner’s insurer. Another world first is the emergency SOS feature which will alert emergency services to your location in the case of an accident. An easy to use touch screen makes the experience even more user friendly.
Personalised wooden moon & stars keyring – RRP £13.99, available from Giftpup
I do love personalised gifts and I think they hold more sentiment – for years to come in the case of this gorgeous keyring. Made from solid cherry wood, the three stars are each engraved with a name, and the moon with “Love you to the moon and back!” and the recipient’s name. This does come with three stars as standard, so I opted for the dog’s name on there too!
Skincare products – RRP from £5.29, available from Black Leopard
Black Leopard are an Australian men’s skin care brand who have recently launched in the UK. Their range of six hero products uses ingredients that are naturally derived and scientifically proven, designed to hydrate, soothe, and revitalise skin. The range includes the 2 in 1 shave gel cleanser and eye cream as pictured, plus moisturiser, face scrub, antiperspirant and hair styling cream
Beard grooming & skincare products – RRP from £3.50, available from Boots, Morrisons & Waitrose
Brisk originally started out as a beard grooming brand so of course there are many beard grooming products to choose from here; including beard oil, beard & face wash, and beard balm. They have recently branched out into skincare so you can also choose from moisturiser and face wash. With a variety of formulations to choose from including citrus, tea tree & cedarwood, malt extract, and hemp. A great choice for the bearded Dad in your life!
“Ladybird” cards – RRP £1.50, available from Danilo and other high street retailers
Hands up if you ever read Ladybird books? 🙋♀️ Most of you, I hope! These cards are a fun take on Ladybird books, akin to the adult versions in the shops nowadays. As well as the ones pictures, there are cards to cover everything from football fans to golf players to barbecue kings. The perfect choice of card for a retro Dad with a good sense of humour!
