It is Father’s Day this Sunday (side note: how quickly did that come around?) which can only mean one thing: spoiling your old man rotten. Fathers can be quite hard to buy for so, with this in mind, we have created a little gift guide that should help you figure out the perfect gift to say ‘thanks’ this June (seriously, we don’t want to go on about it but how is it June already?) Let’s get cracking…
For the tea-loving Dad
If the saying ‘you are what you eat’ is true then your dad is giant pot of tea. He drinks so much that it almost counts as eating. Really. We recognise these traits. Don’t worry. It’ll be okay, where there is tea there is hope. This mug will help him get through.
For the Dad who likes a different kind of tipple
If your Dad is a [insert type of alcohol here] connoisseur then chances are he gets it as a present for every Christmas, birthday, and probably Father’s Day too. Dads can be notoriously hard to buy gifts for so, when they state they like something, they tend to get it in bucket loads. This lovely hip flask incorporates the theme of a drink-that-takes-the-edge-off, but does it a little differently. It also says he’s the best Dad ever which will be the cherry on top of the brandy.
For the ‘Best Dad Ever’
How do you thank the best dad ever? You buy him a cushion declaring it of course. It’s like a medal but practical and soft. And let’s be honest, all Dad’s love a bit of practicality.
For the Adventurer Dad
He’s his most excited when he’s flying across the world, parachuting off a rock, or hiking up a mountain. He’s an adrenaline junkie that is always planning his next adventure. He’s a man consumed by wanderlust: he’s Adventurer Dad. For the days when he’s not exploring the world, and instead dreaming about it, then this hanging decoration is the one.
For the Dad who always skips breakfast
Always in a rush, as busy as a bee, running around on such a tight schedule that he misses, what they say is, the most important meal of the day? Does this sound about right? Well do not fear! We have something that will encourage him to eat his cereal. We mean, who can turn down a personalised bowl with his name on it? Dad being his name of course.
For the awesome Dad
Your Dad, quite frankly, is awesome and you’re so pleased there is a day in the calendar when you can tell him just how chuffing splendid he is. What better way than through this adorable cushion? It will be a reminder, every day of the year, of what a great job he is doing. Well done mate!
For the soppy Dad
You know the kind: he cried at your graduation, writes adorably sweet messages in your birthday cards, and wells up when he remembers how cute you were when you were just a tiny toddler. The soppy dad deserves some soppiness in his direction and this gorgeous ‘love you to the moon and back’ box frame is the ticket. Make sure you also gift some tissues. Just in case.
For the Dad who has his spot on the sofa and if anyone sits on it…!
If the biggest cause of family drama is when someone sits in Dad’s designated, silently assigned seat then this is the present to gift. Long gone are the silent rules hanging in the air unwritten; now it will be openly set in stone (well, fabric). Goodbye family drama.
For the Dad that has everything
Your Pops is the kind of guy who just buys anything he wants. This means, that not only does he have a lot of things, it can be quite difficult to find something he doesn’t have. Cue this sweet token heart! A great gift which shows you care and that, hopefully, won’t get added to a pile of duplicates. Plus, even if he does have something similar, can you ever be told you’re ‘best dad’ enough? Yeah, we thought so too.
Which of these gifts will you choose for your Dad?
