Father’s Day is approaching, which means it’s that time of year when those of us with children too young to select appropriate gifts have to buy a gift for the most awkward person in our lives, our partner. Or Dad, they can be equally as awkward as husbands, I reckon.
Anyway, in order to save you trawling the internet for hours, I’ve put together this handy gift list!
We’ll start off with the standard Father’s Day gift.
But not just any socks, an old favourite is back again. Sandal Socks (£7) are an ideal Father’s Day gift and will hopefully mean your other half skips wearing the real deal. Or maybe you have a ‘Cool Dad’ on your hands that would prefer these sneaker socks. I actually quite like those, sorry. And they only cost a fiver.
Personally, I’d skip all that and go straight for these odd socks (£13.99) as that’s how they’ll all end up anyway!
Admit it, you can’t go wrong with booze.
In this house, it’s beer that is the beverage of choice.
You’ll definitely be in the good books with a box full of beer like this brilliant one from Beerwulf. In this special Father’s Day toolbox beer gift set, you’ll get 12 different beers delivered to your door complete with tasting notes so the dad in your life can pretend that they’re taking the whole thing very seriously. At £25.95 for a dozen beers with free delivery, it really isn’t a bad price either and you can get 16 or 20 beers if your dad is very deserving.
You can even get a fiver off at Beerwulf when you spend £25 by using the code discount5 at checkout.
Maybe he’s more of a liquor man? This engraved hip flask (£16.99) even takes it to a cheesy new level. I mean, they’re not wrong, after reading that sickeningly sweet phrase the new dad really WILL need a drink.
A good book
Does your husband often stand around scratching his head wondering what a dad actually does? If so this handy guide (£5.75) might be the perfect gift.
Also featured in this Ladybird for adult’s range are more must-have publications such as ‘The Hangover‘, ‘The Wife‘ and ‘The Mid-Life Crisis‘, buy him one every Father’s Day and that’s your gift ideas sorted for years!
Tools and gadgets
A brilliant way of saying ‘just get it done for god’s sake, I’ve been nagging you for the past year’.
If the man in your life is excellent at losing things this magnetic wristband (£5.99) might be useful and definitely won’t sit in a drawer collecting dust. Once he’s tested it to see if it means he won’t have to hold his car keys anymore, of course.
Another fun (and useful) gadget is this extendable magnetic torchlight which at £3 is a bit of a bargain too. Just, try and make sure whatever he drops down the back of the radiator to test it isn’t too valuable.
Or go one step further and buy him a tool that’s both meaningful and functional in the form of an engraved hammer (with gift bag, £21) although being honest if I was gifted this I’d probably smash the giver’s head in with it, or at least threaten to.
If you fancy treating him, get your Star Wars Nerd on with these fab shoes from Po-Zu for £59.
Last but not least, don’t forget a card.
