I don’t know about you, but I have the same problem every Father’s Day. What should I buy my dad? There’s only so many times you can buy socks and aftershave… In recent years I have resorted to giving my dad money so he can buy something he really wants, or my siblings and I buy him something between us. But giving money, whilst appreciated, isn’t the same as giving a well thought out present, is it?
But finding a gift that’s different, that he will like and that’s within budget can be difficult. That’s why I have put together a few Father’s Day gift ideas which are available for under £25.
For the dapper dad, why not surprise him with a trendy shirt, jumper or pair of jeans from one of the UK’s leading retailers of men’s designer clothes, Mainline Menswear. Whether you’re up to date with the latest trends in men’s fashion or you’re a novice, Mainline Menswear sell only the top men’s fashion brands so you can guarantee he’ll love whatever you choose. Brands include Armani, Ralph Lauren, Superdry, Hugo Boss and many more big names. Prices for a shirt are as little as £10 which makes it a great choice this Father’s Day.
If your dad likes to relax and unwind after a hard day at work then why not take a look at the ‘mandle’ range from Yankee Candle, a range created with men in mind. Each candle is presented in a stylish black canister jar which will look great in any home or man cave. Scents include Hair Tonic, Hot Towel, Sandalwood, Chrome and Barbershop. Each candle has a lovely scent which will last up to 45 hours, this means your dad will get hours of use and enjoyment from his gift. Each candle is priced at £13.99.
TrackR bravo Key Tracker
Parents have a lot on their plate, children, work, household jobs, so why not make dad’s life easier by giving him a TrackR bravo this Father’s Day. Lost keys will be a thing of the past thanks to this clever little gadget. The coin-sized device can help save time and stress by locating misplaced keys using the TrackR app on a smartphone. If keys aren’t an issue then the TrackR can be attached to a briefcase, wallet or other important items. As well as using the TrackR to locate misplaced items it can also send alerts to remind you to grab an item before leaving the house. Items can be located in seconds using the app and the ring feature. A must have for those forgetful dads. Priced at $29.99 the TrackR is a great gift for the budget conscious.
Zippo hand warmer
If your dad spends a lot of time outdoors, especially during the colder months, then this is a gift he’s sure to appreciate. The Zippo 12 hour hand warmer will keep his hands warm no matter the weather meaning he can enjoy his time outdoors whether that be enjoying sports, a leisurely walk or working outdoors. The hand warmer comes with a warming bag and filler cup, it has a new and improved filling process meaning in no time at all he can be enjoying 12 hours of consistent heat. The 12 hour hand warmer is available in orange, black or chrome and at just over £20 it’s a gift that won’t break the bank this Father’s Day. It also comes with a built to last 2 year guarantee.
If your dad or your children’s dad likes to relax with a well-earned drink after a hard week then why not give him a beer subscription this Father’s Day. Priced at £24 per month you can choose whether to sign up for a one off subscription, or a year long subscription. He will love sampling the different range of beers each month. The subscription box includes tasting notes and a pub quiz.
