Father’s Day is on June 18, meaning that you’ve still got a bit of time to get that perfect present in the bag!
To help you out, here are our top picks when it comes to great value gifts…
Tile Slim Phone, Wallet and Key Finder from John Lewis – £29.95
This is the modern version of the old key finder, where you had to whistle to set off an alarm attached to your fob. This is a little more advanced, of course, and revolves around a tile which is only the thickness of a couple of credit cards and should slip easily into dad’s wallet or be attached to whatever he wants to be able to find.
Using his smartphone, your dad will be able to make his Tile Slim ring and find whatever it is that is lost. The free Tile app will also remember when he last saw his Tile, meaning he should know exactly where to look, and it will last a year without having to charge it. Then the old one can be replaced, so that’s your present sorted for next year as well.
Star Wars Darth Vader Cufflinks from Marks and Spencer – £25.00
He may famously be Luke Skywalker’s father and not yours, but Darth Vader can still help you give dad the perfect Father’s Day gift. If he’s a Star Wars fan, he’s going to love these practical but fun accessories, which should perk up his favourite shirt a treat.
Personalised Daddy And Me Book by Letterfest from Not On The High Street – £22.00
Daddies of little ones will love reading this book with their children and the kids will be fascinated by the way the story revolved around the best man in their lives. The story can be personalised with things that dad loves, as well as with his name and the children’s.
Father’s Day Book from Photobox – £30
How could dad not love this book filled with photographs of his family? You can choose up to three images that can be seen through the cut-out on the front and it can be anything between 26 and 100 pages long.
Father’s Day Experiences from Getting Personal – £19.99
(Could change depending on experience)
An experience gift can really show your dad you care, not least because it can perfectly reflect his interests or hobbies. Getting Personal has a wide range of experiences on offer, ranging from paintballing sessions and football stadium tours to steam train experiences and Beer and Food Festival tickets.
Brick Yourself from Firebox – £29.99
Immortalise your dad in a little building block by supplying the information needed to reflect his style and interests. Your dad toy will then be framed and accompanied by a quote but don’t worry, he can take it out and play with it if he wants.
Three Course Meal and Glass of Wine from Buyagift – £30.00
If the way to dad’s heart is through his stomach, why not treat him to a slap-up meal? This is also a present for two, meaning you might even get to go along as well (and you’re only really spending £15 on dad!) There’s a choice of venues, including Prezzo and Zizzi.
