Top Father’s Day gifts
Here’s a few ideas for something a bit different to get your dad this Father’s Day.
Barbecook Apron with 4-Piece Tool Set
John Lewis, £44.95
The sun’s out, the Pimms is flowing and dad is at the BBQ using 10 year-old rusty utensils. Not for long. How perfect is this apron and tool set for your BBQ-mad dad? He will feel and look great while he is cooking the food and have all the utensils he needs, right in front of him!
Monthly Craft Beer subscription for 3 months
Got a beer connoisseur for a father? He would love this monthly beer box delivery (think Graze but bigger and more alcoholic). Choose from a mixed, light or dark beer box and then sit back and wait for them to be delivered every 4 weeks. The box includes 10 bottles of specially curated craft beer from small breweries all over the country. He will also get a personalised tasting profile so he can explore the depths of the beer.
Chilli Jam Gift Pack
South Devon Chilli Farm, £10.80
If your dad is anything like mine, this is the number one perfect gift. You cannot go wrong with chilli. The South Devon Chilli Farm has loads of awesome gift ideas for the hot-head dads out there (as well as lovely mild presents too). In this little set you get a Hot Apple Jelly, a Chilli Jam and a Chilli Chutney which all go great with cheese or on the side of a salad. They last for ages (well, if you don’t eat them all in one go) and are so tasty you will be ordering more next Father’s Day too!
Personalised Malt Whisky & Engraved Tumbler
Not on the High Street, £46.00
This is such a sweet gift for the dad who loves a whiskey every now and then. Not only is the fine single malt whiskey bottle personalised, but the gorgeous little tumbler is too. This is definitely up there with the best gifts this Father’s Day.
Glen Grant 12 Year single malt whiskey
The Whiskey Exchange, £42.45
If your dad is an even bigger fan of whiskey, then go the whole hog with this Glen Grant 12 Year Old single malt. The packaging is really sleek, showcasing the beautiful golden whiskey inside. This newly launched premium edition is a smooth whiskey with unusual hints of spice – a real treat for a spirit fan.
Bee and Bug House
Greenhouse Sensation, £22.00
Got a dad with green fingers? Bought him just about every tool, seed box etc., over the years and now you’re stuck for ideas? Look no further. This Bee and Bug house is a great idea for the green fingered dad. He can attract all the solitary bees into the garden to help pollinate the flowers. Don’t worry, solitary bees are completely child and pet safe as they are not aggressive and don’t swarm. The house comes with a guide and some wildflower seeds to encourage the wildlife into the garden.
Traditional Father’s Day Cheese Box
The Cheese Works, £28.95
Cheese boards and hampers are a great gift idea. It isn’t something you would usually buy yourself, so it’s great to be able to give your dad one of his very own for Fathers’ Day. This one has cheeses, an ale, some crackers, chutney and a chocolate lolly! A great idea for a dad who loves fine cheeses.
Or finally – have a day out
Not everyone buys their dad a gift on this day, and actually sometimes taking him out for the day just to spend time together beats any gift that money can buy.
That, and making him a nice cup of tea every now and then!
