Father’s Day Gift Ideas


The 17th June is Father’s Day in the UK. We all want to show our Dads how much they mean to us but coming up with gift ideas isn’t always that easy! It’s doubly difficult if you have to buy for your own Dad and for your partner on behalf of your children!

Here we take a look at some of the gifts from UK retailers and websites this year.

Personalised gifts

Most Dads are softies at heart and there are some really touching personalised gifts around these days. We particularly like this personalised ‘My Dad’ book that can be completed with several facts and personal details to make a truly memorable present. This ’10 things I love about Daddy’ print can be fully personalised and can be supplied framed or unframed. Personalised photo frames and photo books also make very thoughtful gifts.

Food related gifts

Most Dads love their food and a growing number are getting into cooking it. If your Dad is a BBQ King, treat him to some new BBQ utensils or a personalised King of the Grill chef’s hat!

Alternatively, feed their imagination with a new cookery book. Whether they have a favourite chef or a style of food they love to cook, there’s a food and drink book that’s perfect for every aspiring chef at Waterstones or Amazon.

Sports gear

Most Dads have a favourite sport, be it football or golf, tennis, fishing or anything else. Whether they like to play or simply spectate, sports provide a wide range of gift ideas for Father’s Day.  Sports clothing and accessories are always a good choice and Intersport has both performance and everyday wear.

For serious sports fans, sporting memorabilia or signed photographs are always a good option.


Male grooming is big business these days so whether your Dad has his favourite products or is happy to try new things, Father’s Day is the perfect time to treat him. Molton Brown toiletries are always a winner and have a wide ranging appeal. If your Dad has a beard, goatee or moustache, one of these facial hair grooming kits or products will be right up his street.


There are some gorgeous fragrances around for men at the moment from the fresh and vibrant to more musky, earth-based scents. If your Dad has a favourite, be sure to check out discount sites such as Fragrance Direct or The Fragrance Shop. For something a bit more upmarket, pick up fragrances from the likes of Jo Malone, Creed, Tom Frod and Le Labo from Selfridges

Buying for you Dad doesn’t have to mean socks or a tie, there are some really unusual and thoughtful gifts available from UK websites. Remember, if you want something personalised you’ll need to allow a few extra days, especially if you’re purchasing from outside the UK and using our parcel forwarding service.
