Following on from my first post earlier in the week, I wanted to add a few more suggestions to the mix – mainly because I found way more gift ideas than I realised I would, when I was doing my research. So here are 5 more Father’s Day gift ideas for you – at least one of which is sure to hit the mark!
Get Personal(ised)! Personalised gifts, from around £5
Who doesn’t LOVE eating a chocolate bar with their own name on the cover? Or supping a nice cold beer with their own face on the label? I know I’m a sucker for it – if your father is too, why not get him a personalised gift? They’re not all super-expensive either – sites like ‘Getting Personal’ have a variety of personalised gifts which any dad would love, and they start as low as about £4 or £5.
£10 to £20
A little bit of what you fancy? A bottle of something nice – prices vary
If your dad likes a glass of his favourite tipple, why not help to keep his drinks cabinet fully-stocked by getting him a bottle of what he fancies? Obviously there are a tonne of options here – a nice wine, some whisky, a big crate of beers. Or perhaps a bottle of The Glenlivet? They’ve produced a real tear-jerker of a Father’s Day video this year, so maybe you can tell dad you love him by showing him this video before presenting him with a bottle?
£20 to £30
Office hi-jinks! Remote control robot – £24.95
Now, the makers of this one seem to think it’s a kids toy – but then again, so do the makers of Lego, so why bother listening to them? No, I know quite a few dads (of all ages) who love a fun gadget, and this remote control robot for kids (or dads!) is sure to get some laughs if you take it into the office. He dances! He walks around! He fires discs out of his chest! What more do you want from a toy/gadget? You can get it everywhere pretty much, including France, Germany and here in the UK.
£30 to £50
The story of my life! Personal photo books, from around £30
There are hundreds of sites that allow you to make personal photo books from your digital photos, so you’re bound to be able to find one to fit your budget. I personally swear by PhotoBox, and can attest to their A5 photo books being the bee’s knees – we buy at least 2 or 3 every year. So why not dig out some old photos of you and your dad and put a little walk down memory lane together for him. They don’t take long to make, and you’ll probably enjoy the nostalgia while you’re putting it together!
Keep him fit! Fitbit wrist band, from around £60
If the father in your life is trying to get in shape, or a bit of a sports nut, why not surprise him with a nifty bit of tech which could enhance his exercise routine? Gadgets like the Fitbit combine health tracking/stats with a few other clever functions – like sleep tracking. We’re not sure how useful it is when dad falls asleep on the sofa after a massive Sunday lunch, but if you can persuade him to get off his backside and go for a run, that’s when the benefits will speak for themselves!
