It’s that time of year again, when you need to show your appreciation for the Dad in your life.
If you’re anything like me, you not only have to shop for your own father but on behalf of the kids for their Dad too!
And while the men in my life protest that they “don’t need anything” or that “socks will do”, I hate being predictable.
So here’s my pick of Father’s Day gift ideas for all different budgets.
Fella in your life in the habit of always losing his keys?
Give him Key Pete, the super strong magnetic key holder. For only £6.99 it will save him valuable time and grey hairs in the future – and stop you from wanting to smother him in his sleep!
Available from iwantoneofthose.com
Up to £20
Mr G likes a drop of malt whisky (well, we do live in Scotland – it would be rude not to!)
A personalised drinks measure glass from NotOnTheHighStreet.com would be a quirky little gift from the boys.
And at just £20 for an engraved tumbler, I might have enough left over to stretch to a bottle of his favourite tipple too.
Depends how much help I get with the housework over the next couple of weeks!
Neal’s Yard Remedies do this lovely Smooth Operator gift box, containing organic shave oil and after-shave balm, for £23.
It softens the skin and prevents cuts and burns.
Up to £40
A magazine subscription is something he can enjoy for the rest of the year. But if you’re not sure which title he would choose, WHSmith do this fabulous For Him gift pack which lets him select one of six titles.
There’s Empire, Q, Car, Outdoor Fitness, FHM or Today’s Golfer.
For the bargain price of £33.99, he gets 9 issues – that’s about £3.78 per magazine.
Up to £50
A nice watch means your Dad will have something every day to remind him of you. I love the selection at The Watch Hut, particularly this Sekonda Gents Chronograph for just £45.
But seriously, whatever your budget this store has a smart watch to suit you.
