Great Gift Ideas for Dad This Father’s Day

5th June 2018

Father’s Day is a great opportunity to show Dad just what he means to you. Dad’s do so much, from working to provide for their families, teaching us to ride our bike and instilling within our life’s important lessons. So this year, rather than grabbing the standby gift of a coffee mug, why not take some time to really think about what gift would show Dad just how special he is?

Here, we’ll share some great ideas that will make perfect Father’s Day gifts. So whether you’re dad loves to fire up the BBQ or spends all his free time listening to his favourite music, we’ve got you covered.

The Sporty Dad

Lots of dads love sports – that’s just how it is. So giving him a gift associated with his favourite sports team or favourite athletic hobby is a great way to give dad a gift he’ll really appreciate. For the golf-loving dad, a personalised ball marker makes a touching gift that he can keep close to him when he’s playing on the course. If your dad is an avid runner or gym lover, he’ll probably appreciate a breathable t-shirt to keep him cool during summer workouts.

The Music-Loving Dad

For any dad who loves music, it’s something that can be shared with his whole family. No matter how bad you think his taste in music is, you can’t come between a man and his tunes. Did you know that there are now vinyl subscription services that will send you a vinyl every month, paired with the perfect wine or beer? Sign dad up for a subscription or a one-off gift box for a real musical treat he’s sure to appreciate.

The Outdoorsy Dad

Whether your dad loves to fish, camp, hike, kayak or all of the above, he’ll appreciate any gift that will allow him to enjoy his hobbies further.  A gift that will protect his personal belongings while he’s enjoying the outdoors, like a waterproof phone case, is both practical and thoughtful. If your dad is a true adventurer, he’ll love this flashlight that doubles as a survival kit with life-saving items like a compass, matches and more.

The Dad Who Loves to Entertain

With Father’s Day being at the early point of BBQ season, what better way to gift a grilling dad than with some brilliant BBQ accessories? Dad can continue to throw the best BBQs with the tastiest homemade burgers when you give him a burger press like this one. If steaks are more his thing, then he might prefer a personalised BBQ tool set.

The Gadget-Loving Dad

Dads who love gadgets are always fun to buy for because there’s always something new you can get for them. For the dad who loves gadgets as well as DIY, a digital tape measure makes the perfect gift he can have some fun with. If your dad loves gadgets but is a little bit forgetful, a key finder is a gift that will make his life a lot easier by making it impossible for him to lose his keys and other similar items.
