Father's Day Gift Guide

What do you get the man who has everything? And if he doesn't have it he nips out to buy one! With just over a week to go till Father's Day, many will be panicking about how to share their appreciation for dads, granddads and husbands. Fear not, we have gifts he didn't even know he wanted, and plenty more.


You know it's a cliche, of course, but socks are perfect gift material, and he always needs more.  This gorgeous colour burst sock collection will add a burst of brightness to his sock drawer.  Made from rich cotton or super soft bamboo in a range of plain and patterned styles, they keep feet cool, fresh and comfortable all day long.


Always moaning about there not being enough room in the fridge with all those summer beers?  Treat him to his own mini fridge in the shape of this Budweiser Drinks Cooler.  This awesome cooler has plenty of room for all his drinks - and snacks - and is perfect for BBQ season.  The contemporary red cabinet features the well-known Budweiser branding, whilst the double-glazed door showcases the Budweiser logo, with tempting visibility to the contents inside!


The compact, table top size is versatile for use throughout the house.  It stores up to 40 x 440ml cans, and keeps that can of Budweiser perfectly cold, for the ultimate Father's Day treat that will keep him smiling all summer.


Is he a Ghostbusters fan?  Then this Ghostbusters Ecto 1-A from Playmobil is perfect.  Now celebrating its 35th anniversray, this is a great gift for the nostalgic dad.  The ultimate toy for any Ghostbuster fan, the iconic van features a new design with blue lights and cool sounds, as well as a removable roof, slime blowers and all four original Ghostbuster figures.


It also includes a hologram pyramid, meaning ghosts quickly disappear into a trap.  Each figure has its own proton backpack and proton emitters, everything you need to get those ghouls off the streets - just like dad will remember!


Grooming products are always popular and the new range from Wilkinson Sword is perfect for dad.  The Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Groomer is a 4-in-1 styling tool with patented technology that trims, shaves, edges and hydrates with every shave.  At one end it has an adjustable power trimmer that can be customised to your desired hair length, and at the other, an all-in-one tool.  There is also a gel reservoir containing aloe vera to lubricate the skin and reduce irritation.

The Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sense Razor auto-adjusts to the amount of pressure applied to the skin for a customised close shave.  It is built to address irritation head-on with the inclusion of an innovative build-in shock absorber on the razor head that allows for an incredibly close shave, alongside unique refill gel formulas which provide specific shaving benefits that cater to men's differing needs.


The No Bounds Bluetooth Speaker is House of Marley’s most rugged and resilient speaker, enabling dad to take his music with him everywhere - perfect for camping or holidays this summer.  Crafted from sustainable cork to be as natural as its intended environment, the speaker is also waterproof, meaning it’s perfect for the bathroom, beach or even a pool-side party.


With a 10 hour battery life and a strap to hang it up anywhere you go, this speaker will be a summer (and shed) essential. The audio quality is very good and it looks great too!


Another summer essential is the FireAngel CO-9D Carbon Monoxide Alarm which is perfect at home or while travelling. If your husband is anything like mine he's been meaning to get one for ages, so Father's Day is the perfect opportunity to take something off his to do list!


We were sent one on behalf of Project SHOUT, a national campaign which raises awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.  Their vision is for everyone to be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning and to protect as many people as possible from this silent killer.


The FireAngel CO-9D Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a small, portable alarm, which is perfect for travelling. The alarm has a 7-year battery life and features clear LED indicators for power, fault or alarm status. It is available from Amazon.


Melody Maison has a great range of Father's Day gifts that move away from the norm, including a mix of quirky, retro and totally cool items he will love.  If your dad loves everything vintage, treat him to this stylish Antique Wooden Miners Lantern Style Table Lamp, a fantastic addition to an office or reading corner!

For something a bit different, Red Letter Days has Father’s Day gift recommendations for all types of dad, whether he likes thrills, super speed or something more sedate like a whisky tasting or lovely meal out.


For adventurous dads we love the 60 Minute Extended Flying Lesson, available UK wide.  Help dad reach new heights with an awe-inspiring 60 minute flying lesson in a light aircraft.  Soaring through the clouds, it’s the perfect opportunity to learn exhilarating techniques with the assistance of a fully qualified instructor whilst seeing the world from an extraordinary perspective.  Or perhaps you could join him on an Introductory Indoor Skydiving for the Family?

If your dad prefers terra firma, how about a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant in London or a Brewery Day and Beer Tasting at destinations around the country?


Or, the perfect gift for any football fan, a stadium tour of Liverpool Football Club for an adult and child.  It's the perfect chance to discover the club's 120 year history.  He'll be able to pass through the player's lounge, the press rooms, the dressing rooms, walk through the players' tunnel and sit in Jurgen Klopp's seat.  Finish in the glorious Kop and listen to thousands singing the immortal song You'll Never Walk Alone.  It's an LFC fan's dream come true!


And finally, back to socks - socks that help protect some of the world's most critically endangered animals.  Critically Endangered Socks are made from a beautifully soft and sustainable blend of bamboo and cotton and are available in five designs and two sizes, and retail at £12 a pair are certainly a special purchase.
