We can’t guarantee the sun will be shining on Father’s Day, but we can guarantee your dad will love these classic swim trunks from ASOS. With a drawstring waist and a flattering mid-length cut, these swim shorts are an excellent pick for dads of all ages. UK holidays are set to be the staple of Summer 2021, which means seaside trips galore. Skip the naff boardshorts and make sure he’s set for his beach debut with these stylish navy trunks.
This Casio watch makes for the perfect universal dad gift—it’s stylish without being flashy; practical without being boring. Did we mention it costs less than a tenner? The durable, splash-proof resin band makes it a great everyday staple that’s excellent for fuss-free fathers. Whether it’s a nod to his understated style or a dig at his poor timekeeping, this watch is a guaranteed winner for an affordable Father's Day gift that isn’t socks and a box of chocolates.
If your dad’s idea of fun involves long hikes and marathon bike rides, he’ll love this stainless steel water bottle from Chilly’s, which is currently on sale at Urban Outfitters. The sturdy, leak-proof design is great for dads on the go, and the fuss-free screw top makes it suitable for storing soups and hot drinks, too. We love the classic steel colour for its understated style (plus, it’s easy to find at the bottom of your backpack), but the navy blue and black designs are also discounted.
Beer is a classic dad gift, but forget picking up a six-pack at the supermarket—opt for this gift pack of British-brewed craft ales and lagers from Beer Hawk instead. The cans come in a sleek-looking canister with a ‘cheers dad’ design to make it extra special. This is a great gift to get delivered if you can’t be with your dad on Father’s Day—Beer Hawk send all of their Father’s Day presents in brown paper gift wrap, and you’ll have the option to add a thoughtful gift note to complete the package.
For many of us, the last year has been a chance to up our cooking credentials. If your dad is ready to graduate from sourdough, treat him to this ravioli press set from Lakeland—it will have him churning out handmade filled pasta like a pro! This set is perfect for beginners with a choice of two shapes and comfortable handles to make pressing a breeze. Pair it with a bag of high quality pasta flour for a not-so-subtle hint that pasta’s on the menu for Father’s Day dinner this year.
There are a few universal truths when it comes to dads—bad jokes, being hard to buy for and singing in the shower. This waterproof Bluetooth speaker is a must for dads who treat the bathroom as a karaoke session. It’s rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry about replacement batteries, and the sturdy suction cup will keep it in place on any smooth bathroom surface. The speaker has inbuilt play/pause, forward/previous and volume buttons, so he’ll have complete control—plus no excuse not to turn it down if he’s blasting The Stones at 7am!
Congratulations on hitting your first Father’s day milestone! This ‘no sleep club’ eye pillow is a fun present for dads who bravely endure the night shift. The linen wheat bag will block out unwanted light, soothe tired eyes and help him catch those forty (or twenty) winks. It can also be used as a hot or cold pack to relieve tension for tired necks, shoulders and backs. The pillow comes with free gift wrapping too, making it an easy fuss-free gift for busy parents.
This sleek razor is a great upgrade on a classic Father’s Day gift thanks to gruum’s stylish, ergonomic design. Each set comes with a weighty metal handle (we love the dad-friendly ocean blue colour) plus a twin-pack of 6-blade cartridges and a protective cover. Don’t be fooled by the cheap price—gruum’s Scandi-inspired products focus on the highest quality ingredients and materials, suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Pair the razor set with grüum’s luxury shave oil to give your dad his closest shave, ever!
Trips to far-flung destinations might still be off the cards for a while yet, but that doesn’t mean your dad can’t dream about his next adventure. This homage to one of the world’s most celebrated food writers will transport your dad to the colourful back streets of Buenos Aires, the stunning desert solitude of Oman's Empty Quarter, and beyond. Part travel guide, part memoir; ‘World Travel’ will scratch the itch for dads who can’t wait to get back to globetrotting.
Spice up your dad’s life with this chilli growing kit from IWOOT. Novelty without being naff, this is a great gift for guys who already sport an impressive hot sauce collection, or for green-fingered dads who can handle the heat. All he has to do is open the can, plant the seeds, water and wait! A word of warning: the Ghost chilli isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s around 400 times hotter than your standard tabasco sauce, so avoid this gift if your dad is more of a mild korma guy.
If you’re after a Father’s Day gift for a dog-loving dad, forget the novelty mugs—this labrador whisky tumbler is the perfect combination of fun and functional. Made by Dartington Crystal, this high quality glassware is a bar cart staple for dads who enjoy a tasty tipple after walks with their four-legged friend. Take your present to the next level by pairing it with a nice bottle of whisky, or gift it on its own for a cheap and cheerful pressie.
Coffee-obsessed dads will love this gift set, featuring four tasty coffees from Pact roasters. As well as Pact’s house blend and the award-winning single-origin Planalto, your dad will be treated to two guest coffees with bright and fruity finishes. Pact is known for its ethical credentials— the direct trade model ensures growers get paid a fair wage, so your dad can feel good about drinking a sustainable cup. Choose whole beans or opt to have them ground for your dad’s favourite brewing method.
