Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day is just around the corner. It can be hard to find the right gift for the important men in your life. So I have compiled a few ideas here for you.



  • A Personalised iPad Keyboard Case (£45) from Photobox. You can design your case so that it features one single photo or a collage of multiple photos. It is designed to fit all iPad models except the iPad Air. The case is made using a lightweight aluminium shell so it is light to carry, it also has a scratch and chip resistant coating so your picture will always look its best. A single charge will give you up to 100 hours of use. When you're not using the keyboard it can easily be attached to the ipad via magnets. Uses a wireless bluetooth connection.

  • A Gift Set from Baylis & Harding (£12). The gift set contains 200ml Shower Gel, 200ml Aftershave Balm and 300ml Hair & Body Wash. 

  • A Personalised Phone Case (£19.99) from Albelli. You can use any photo to create your own case for a Samsung S3, S4, S4 mini or S5 or an iPhone 4/4S, 5/5S or 6.

  • A box of Luxury Belgian Chocolate Truffles from Godiva (£16.25). Available in different size boxes these chocolates won't disappoint. They would make a lovely Father's Day gift.
  • A SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Controller (£67). A wireless mobile gaming controller designed for use with either an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to give users a better gaming experience. It is the first bluetooth controller for IOS devices. it is lightweight, sleek and boasts an impressive 10+hours use from a full charge. 

  • Gorilla Glue and Tape (£4 each) for Dad's who like DIY Gorilla Glue and Tape products would make a great gift this Father's Day. Gorilla Tape is the perfect all purpose tape it combines double thick adhesive, strong webbed backing and a rugged all weather coating to ensure it sticks to almost anything including rough or uneven surfaces, wood, stone or bricks both inside and out. Gorilla Glue is 100% waterproof, weatherproof and temperature resistant. The glue is water activated and expands 3x its size during curing, it forms an unbreakable bond with almost any material including wood, ceramic, stone, metal and more. Once dry its sandable and paintable.

  • O'Keeffe's Working Hands Cream (£7). A unique, non greasy, non odour hand cream that helps to relieve dry and damaged skin. The cream creates a barrier to help prevent further damage. It is suitable for both men and women. Perfect for those dads who work with their hands. I will certainly be buying my dad some as he works outside all year round and suffers from terribly cracked skin due to the constant changes in the weather.

  • A Series 5 Wet and Dry Shaver from Braun (£180). The series 5 shaver boasts a unique mix of both power and precision so its able to offer a great shave without causing discomfort to skin. Using new FlexMotionTec you can shave more efficiently. The shaver has a 40 pivoting head which effortlessly navigates along contours of the skin for maximum contact. The unique oscillating trimmer lifts and cuts flat-lying hairs in fewer strokes. The CrossHair blade captures all those stubborn hairs that grow in different directions.

  • A selection of chocolates from Lily O'Brien's (from £2). Whatever your Dad likes there's sure to be something that takes his or your fancy. There's sharing pouches of chocolates to boxes of limited edition flavours.

  • A Journal From You To Me (£14.99 / £12.99). Beautifully illustrated you can choose from a number of journals for your dad. Perfect for young children to give to their dads these journals can be filled in together to create long lasting memories. You can personalise covers to include dad's name. Creating bonding moments and memories to last a lifetime I can't think of a nicer gift from a young lad to his dad.

  • A Fusion ProGlide Razor from Gillette (£12). The razor is designed to give you a noticeably smoother skin in just one stroke. The new flexball technology helps you to reach even those hard to get to places and helps to get all those hairs that you usually miss. Use with Gillette gel for an even better shaving experience.

  • A Baldwin's Gift Set (£35). A beautifully presented Gift Box containing a collection of Green Tea and Frankincense dedicated products - A Natural Cotton Flannel, Green Tea & Frankincense Refreshing Facial Wash, Green Tea & Frankincense Exfoliating Facial Scrub, Green Tea & Frankincense Smoothing Shaving Oil and Green Tea & Frankincense Hydrating Skin Lotion.

  • A Windomatic from Vileda (£39). A cordless window vacuum which will help speed up the time it takes to clean your windows. You can use the Windomatic inside and out and even use it on the car windows too. You can use it to remove condensation and you will be left with a clean, streak free finish on all your windows and mirrors. The flexible head allows you to get right into the corners of your windows to ensure a thorough clean is achieved.

  • An Eye-Fi Mobi Memory Card (£33). This memory card is like no other. It allows you to take pictures on your SLR camera and then upload them to your smart phone via an app using wifi technology. Perfect for those dads who love to take 100's of photos a time and who love to send pictures to everyone (yes we have one of those in the family). You can also sign upto the Eye-Fi Cloud for £34.99 a year to save even more pictures and keep them all safe in one place.
