The countdown has officially begun, get organised and plan how you’ll be spoiling your dad this year all in the name of Father’s Day on the 19th June.
Whatever the budget, we’ve got you covered. From sticking with the classic options we all know and love, to trying something different for your old man, it’s all here.
Socks are a go-to dad gift for a reason; they’ll be used. Just because your dad might expect them doesn’t mean he can’t be surprised by the quality and style. This duo of ribbed socks by Simon Carter are made from a blend of premium Italian cotton and nylon for maximum comfort, boast hand-stitched toe detailing, plus you get a pair in black with the second pair in a choice of red or blue – job done.
If you can’t step in to the house without hearing ‘Formula 1′ this or ‘Lewis Hamilton’ that, this sleek, metallic 8GB racing car USB stick by V-Tec is a simple and thoughtful way of showing your dad you’re listening… well, most of the time.
‘They don’t make them like they used to’
Whether your dad was around for the first wave of vinyl or just appreciates terrific sound quality in his music, treat him to this stylish, vintage-inspired (most importantly, compact) vinyl turntable by GPO and let the music play.
This five-piece kit and mini tool box from Am-Tech makes a fab gift, boasting a magnetic claw hammer, screwdriver, pliers and more. Whether your dad is starting his DIY collection from scratch or needs to replace the old, this set is a must-have for any tool shed.
Dressed to the nines
We love this stylish pair of potting shed cuff links by Simon Carter, available in quirky gardening motifs. They’re the perfect finishing touch to sharpen any avid gardener’s formal look, and a bit of fun too.
A quality dressing gown is a seriously underestimated purchase and the kind of gift that just keeps on giving. This snug, wrap-front design by Stan Herman is luxuriously soft and perfect for slipping into on a cosy night in, watching the telly after a long day.
The perfect gift for any man-on-the-go, this stylish set of grooming tools by Danielle Creations includes nail clippers, a cuticle pusher, tweezers, a nail file, scissors and a facial hair trimmer. Plus it’s good-to-go as a gift, presented in a sleek, hard shell case.
Spa at home
Featuring a selection of male beauty necessities from shaving cream to body wash, this gorgeous six-piece collection from Molton Brown boasts luxurious, masculine fragrances in handy travel sizes.
Help your dad turn his garden into a haven for nature with Richard Jackson’s bird nesting kit, including nesting wool, balls of food, seed, and feeders. This bundle is a brilliant way to top up his supplies if he’s already a keen birdwatcher or a great hobby for you to introduce to his lazy Sundays.
