Father's Day Gift Guide
With the big day fast approaching, thinking of the best Father's Day gifts can be a struggle. That’s why we’re here with a range of fun, quirky and helpful items for you to get your dad this year. Whether he likes sports, cooking, gardening, modelling or something else entirely, we have a suggestion for you in our Father’s Day gift guide.
HMS Belfast Construction Set
If your dad loves his military history and is a keen modeller in his spare time, he’s bound to enjoy piecing together his very own HMS Belfast model. This ship is one of only three surviving bombardment vessels from D-Day and this construction set, from the Imperial War Museum, allows your dad to bring a fascinating piece of history into his own home. To make this Father’s Day extra special, you could also treat him to a visit to the HMS Belfast and Imperial War Museum in London.
Pure Genius Head Chef Cap
Since summer is well on the way, maybe it’s time to treat any fathers who like to flame grill their meals to this quirky cap? With a hilarious slogan and handy bottle opener in the peak, any dad will love knowing his kids think he’s the barbeque king of his garden. He’ll never barbeque without it again!
St Andrew's Old Course Products
Your dad will be the talk of his golfing group with these brilliant St Andrew’s Old Course items. Protect his eyes and head with the St Andrew's Cap
, let him enjoy a drink after a round of golf with the St Andrew's Whisky Tumbler and Hip Flask
and, to finish up his St Andrew’s kit, treat him to the St Andrew's Three-Fold Towel
.Each of these items comes with the St Andrew’s Old Course logo and they make the perfect presents for golf fans.
Dads with a knack for solving puzzles will have a real challenge with the Tetraturn puzzle which requires a lot of brain power to complete two tricky challenges. If your dad has always been a word search, sudoku and crossword enthusiast, give him a new puzzle to ponder over this Father’s Day.
Punjabi Curry Kit
This tasty curry kit from the Scotia Spice Cookery School allows any foodie father to make six different curry dishes (three chicken-based main meals and three side dishes), each for two people. With all the spices, recipes and a tasting guide included, this is the perfect gift for your dad who loves to whip up his very own tasty treats.
'I'm Sure I Speak for Many Others...'
This compilation, brought together by Colin Shindler, features previously unpublished letters to the BBC across 40 years of their broadcasting history. If your dad is telly-mad, he’ll greatly enjoy flicking through these funny letters and casting his mind back to the shows he used to watch as he comes across letters concerning programmes that were once regularly shown on the small screen.
Leather Rugby Ball Manicure Set
If your dad’s sport of choice is rugby then we have some fantastic rugby-based items that will make excellent presents. In amongst these, we have the leather rugby ball manicure set which features safety scissors, fine tweezers, and a cuticle and nail multi-tool and two sets of nail clippers, all kept together in a leather kit. If your dad is planning a trip away, this is a great item for him to pack in his suitcase to take all his manicure essentials along with him.
Kent & Stowe Tool Storage Belt
For a more practical present, this sturdy storage belt from Kent & Stowe is a great gift idea for a keen gardener. This storage belt has eight pockets of different sizes to allow him to carry all the tools he needs when he is sprucing up the garden.
An animal-loving dad will really appreciate this hedgehog igloo. Whether the local hedgehogs need somewhere warm to hibernate in the winter or a safe spot for raising their little hoglets in summer, this igloo is big enough to securely accommodate a family group. So, if your dad loves wildlife and would enjoy encouraging more creatures into his garden then the hedgehog igloo may just be the perfect go-to Father’s Day gift.
