They say two heads are better than one, and with Father’s Day rolling around on 18th June, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite gift ideas to give you a little inspiration. While you’ll have to sort the breakfast in bed and cheesy action movie, we can provide a bit of a helping hand with the gifts to save you turning up with another pair of slippers that mum puts straight into the charity basket.
Whether he’s a gadget lover or prefers more of a pamper, we’ve got the Father’s Day presents covered – all you need to do is make sure you get them in time (yes, on the flight home still counts!).
For the big kids who still just want something they can play with, the Lifetrons Drumbass Speaker ticks all the boxes. The pocket-sized speaker has got all the funky stuff, including a speakerphone to answer calls and Bluetooth – because don’t all dads love Bluetooth?
If he’s more of a shy and retiring type, but still likes to tell you about the first ever Beatles gig he went to, the Bang & Olufsen A8 Earphones will give him something to show off to his mates. The innovative design ensures that the earphones fit each individual’s ear comfortably, so there’ll be no more moaning that his ears are too big and they fall out.
On the other hand, if he’s more of a fashionable type (or at least tries to be), you can never go far wrong with a shiny new watch. Our new favourite is the Boss Orange Watch, with a black nylon strap and orange detail to give it a sporty look. You can also wow dad with the fact that it’s water-resistant and spend a morning gathered round the sink dunking it in – “just to see.”
For a more under-stated gift, the Tokyo Laundry Leather and Steel Bracelet is the perfect accessory for casual or business dress, and will have him flashing his wrist at any given opportunity. When all else fails, it’s Givenchy to the rescue with the Gentlemen Only Casual Chic aftershave. With a spicy and woody fragrance, the elegant scent is perfect for dads with a bit of style and charm. We’ll make a gentleman out of him yet!
Armed with some new inspiration, you can make sure you’ve locked down that Father’s Day gift ahead of time, leaving plenty of extra hours for the dreaded card search. Funny? Sentimental? Who knows!
