Father's Day Gift Ideas

Buying father’s day gifts can be difficult when stuck for ideas. Opting for the usual slippers or aftershave might be unforgotten in a year’s time, but there are lot more presents on offer for Father’s day to inspire the sender, providing a gift to a dad remember.

Unique Father’s Day Gift


Experience days are a great gift for a father who has everything. For the sport fanatic, craft workshops will educate and enlighten, such as Bespoke Cricket Bat Experience, where the cricket fanatic may attend a workshop and learn how to make his very own cricket bat, specific to the recipient’s weight, shape and height.
Similar sporting experiences can be sought from a Tour of Wembley Stadium to golfing tutorials. Greenfree Golf Vouchers from BuyaGift allows the recipient to play golf at a premier location, such as the Belfry with a friend for the day.
The Perfect Gift for Father’s Day


Driving Day Experiences are exceedingly popular, where dad may enjoy driving a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, or go rally driving. Dad may enjoy some practice laps before the main event, a six-mile long thrilling ride around the racetrack. The Tank Driving Experience offers an alternative, where dad may drive a cheiftan tank and a quad bike under the skilled guide of experienced instructors, some of whom may have some interesting stories to relate.


Humorous Father’s Gifts


For the dad who can’t afford a life sized model, GettingPersonal provide a Build Your Own Lamborghini or build your own Porsche. The gift has a dye cast metal body, opening doors, dashboard and lights. Alternatively, nostalgic gifts serving as a reminder of years gone by may help recapture how things used to be. Collectable gifts from the previous decade often take on a classic feel. KapowGifts stock merchandise from the Simpsons and Dangermouse to Garfield and Austin Powers. Great humorous gifts for a special man can be found on my online shop.

More poignantly, Dad’s Cab Taxi Meter will ensure the kids can no longer get free rides in the car. By switching on the dashboard meter, the kids will see how the fare piles up, which can only be paid by forfeit cards, displaying “make dad a cup of tea” or “tidy your room.” Dad will never feel taken advantage again.

Personalized Father’s Day Gifts


A back copy of a classic publication from the date of his birth may cause dad to wonder at the day’s events, the advertising, products and images of the day. A choice of newspapers is on offer, such as the Times, the Daily Mail or the Telegraph. A sturdy gift box and a certificate of authenticity are included. Further ideas for personalized gifts, such as mugs, clothes and books can be found on GettingPersonal.

If money is an issue, a handmade present will often work wonders. Creating a present from a crafty idea is not always difficult, and results in a memorable Father’s day present. A gift relating to a hobby or passion can often be found, such as creative writing or playing an instrument, without breaking the purse strings. Why not let dad enjoy a pampering day in the bath surrounded with homemade scented candles, homemade wine bearing his name or homemade chocolates, if he has such a preference. Such experiences can be found for less than £30.
