“Two guys walk into a bar, the third one ducks.”
We pretend to hate his jokes but let’s face it, dad’s pretty darn good at them – amongst many other things of course. This Father’s Day (*cough* 21st June) let’s pay tribute to all the fab dads out there and find a gift he’ll love!
Here are a handful of ideas we’re loving this year, suitable for all types of dad from the grizzlies to the well-groomed. And, if you shop through easyfundraising.org.uk, you can double the feel good factor by raising a donation for your cause. It’s a win, win situation!
The personal touch
There are loads of great online shops out there giving you the option to personalise your gifts, so take advantage of them and earn some Brownie points. You could frame his favourite lyrics with notonthehighstreet.com, remind him of a special memory with a photo phone case from moonpig or go even further and present him with the story of the two of you with this brilliant book from Prezzybox.
The Man Cave
A place for reflecting and relaxing wouldn’t be complete without his favourite tipple, whether that be a smooth single malt or a big flavour bourbon, you can get it all from The Whisky Exchange AND with Waterford’s MadMen Edition you can get him crystal tumblers and a swanky decanter to go with it, leaving him feeling like Don Draper himself.
The Sensitive Side
If dad’s more maintenance than ultra-manly these gifts ideas are just the ticket. Provide him with the tools he needs to feel 10 years younger with Selfridges’ Limited Edition Grooming Bag gift, make sure his moustache stays perfectly maintained with Whisker Wax from Esty and his beard gleams with Mr Natty Ship Soap and Beard Elixir Gift Set from John Lewis. Or, there’s always the fail safe aftershave you know he loves from Boots.
The Better Out Than In
Whether Dad’s your resident Evil Knievel or more partial to nights at the pics you can get a gift that gets him out the house and doing what he loves.
Treat him to a 007 worthy experience day, like this Aston Martin DBS Thrill from Red Letter Days, a slap up meal with the family with The Gourment Society or be a good sport and get him tickets to watch his team play their next match with The Ticket Factory. Whatever his preference, there’s the perfect gift out there!
The Wild Card
The internet is packed the rafters with some truly weird and wonderful gifts, so if you want to give dad something completely different this year how about a Del Boy dressing gown from Argos, a Lordship from The Present Finder, Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ tongs from eBay or a fishing game for him to enjoy whilst he’s on the loo – yes you can get toilet games from Find Me a Gift.
