Father’s day is nearly here and daddies across the country can look forward to a well deserved break and some pampering for the day. Dad is the toughest person to buy for and, if you’re anything like our family, the job of gift buying – for at least the next 18 years – invariably falls on mummy dearest so time for some creative inspiration. Who wants a repeat on last years socks and those ‘I love Dad’ mugs can only go so far.
So to make this a day to remember we have compiled 5 unique Father’s Day gifts from around the country to suit all budgets and put a smile on Dad’s face. If you have more ideas to share tell us in the comments below or on our Facebook and Twitter.
This is lovely gift for the kids to create for Dad. Each child in the family prints their hand in blue or green onto a canvas to form the branches of a tree trunk already drawn. You then frame the tree and voila a gorgeous gift and one that captures the priceless moment of childhood, just for Dad.
To make him feel like a true gent during his 10 minute bathroom break each day there’s no beating this sleek and stylish black shaving set comprises a razor, a mirror, a shaving brush and bowl. Pure luxury.
Yes it’s a cliche but lets be honest there can’t be many dads that aren’t die hard Doctor Who fans. Let him be Time Lord for the day with this truly Gallifreyan and very funky sonic screwdriver. It’s not just a screwdriver with 13 Whoniverse sounds. It’s also a fully programmable, gesture based Universal Remote Control! Utilising infrared technology to control everything from TV’s and DVD players to stereos and iPod docks, you’ll be able to make changes with just a flick of the wrist. I can’t resist this one.
Budding chef Dad
You can’t get better than this for a gift that gives to the whole family – a Three Month Friday Night Curry Subscription. Perfect for the curry loving Dad, this curry subscription contains all the fresh spices and recipes he needs to make a fantastic curry and all the side dishes. A great way to get the creative juices flowing and give relief to any mums that do all the cooking.
Globe Trotter Dad
He might not be the travel buff he used to but if he’s had a taste of wanderlust in his life, he will love this Scratch Off World Map poster. Let dad show off how travelled and educated he is with this fab gift. This map print comes with a classy looking gold foil top layer which means that once you have visited a country, you get to scratch it off to reveal a beautifully vibrant and geographically correct map underneath.
Happy shopping and Have a lovely Father’s Day!
