Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day Gift Guide
Dads are always the hardest to buy gifts for... what do you buy for the man that says he wants nothing?

Father's Day is the perfect time to show him just how special he is, so we've put together a list of our favourite gift ideas for Dad this Father's Day.

Experience Gifts

  • A dinner for you both... It's not that often that you spend quality one to one time with Dad. Perhaps Mum is usually there, or your other siblings, so why not book a meal for the both of you at his favourite pub so you can have some quality time for a real catch up.

  • Brewery Tour... Most areas have their own local brewery that will offer tours, tasters & usually some tasty treats too. A great way to support a local business & for Dad to enjoy a day out that you know he'll love. Or what about wine tasting if that's his preference?

  • An Adventure Jar... A lovely idea for an adventurous little one to give their Daddy on Father's Day. Using an old jam jar, add an 'Adventure Jar' label and, with the kids create lots of notes with ideas for activities and fun days out that Dad can do with the kids. It can be anything from a trip to the park, swimming in the sea, a late-night drive or playing dinosaurs in the woods. Dad can pick out a new fun adventure every week and it's the gift that keeps on giving.

Keepsake Gifts

  • A personalised mug... Most Dads love a nice cup of tea or coffee in the morning, so get him his very own mug and make him feel he truly is number 1!

  • A photo album... Print off all your favourite memories with Dad and create a homemade scrapbook that shows him how special he is. You could add in little notes and written memories alongside photos that tell him why you loved that special day, that fun holiday or just the everyday things he does that make him unique.

A special Dad Tatty Teddy Bear...

The perfect gift to show your Dad how loved he is.

Tatty Teddy represents love and kindness, and a little Dad Tatty Teddy is the perfect reminder to him every day how loved he is.

Practical Gifts

  • It's the age-old gift that every Dad will love... New socks! Treat Dad to a pair of special Father's Day socks with a cute message on from our Father's Day range. Choose from Daddy socks, Dad socks or Grandad socks.

  • A hamper of his favourite things...Whether that's coffee, chocolate, beer, cake or crisps. If your Dad loves coffee for example, choose him some new flavours to try, some from a local supplier, a luxury choice he wouldn't buy himself and his trusted favourite flavour that you know he'll love. That way it's practical but also a treat.

  • A BBQ gift set- perfect for showing off his cooking skills and a good excuse to get some friends over

For First Time Dads

  • Personalised Baby Grow... A lovely idea to dress your new bundle of joy in the night before Father's Day so it's the first thing Daddy sees in the morning. This adorable Tiny Tatty Teddy baby grow can be personalised so it says your baby's name followed by 'loves Daddy'. Something that will be certain to make him smile on his first Father's Day.

  • At Home Hand Casting... This is the perfect way to capture a moment in time, and the bond between your little one and their Daddy. Spend his first Father's Day creating a unique moulding of him holding his little one's hand that you can keep as a treasured memory forever. A lovely keepsake and a fun activity to do on the day.
