How are we in the last few days of May? And the second to last bank holiday until Christmas? The years is really flying by, especially now we’re nearly at that half-way point in June. As well as June being a pretty chilled out time, with sports days a plenty, it is also the month that we celebrate the fathers or father figures, in our lives. I know that since I’ve become a parent, I appreciate my own dad more than ever, as well as the dad to my two babies, so having a day to celebrate them and all that they do for us is a great thing.
Father’s Day gifts are normally a bit naff, though, I think. A tie, socks, or chocolate are such the cliché thing, right? So I do try to look for something a little more thoughtful. A personalised or homemade gift, like a hamper of their favourite things can always work well. But we don’t all have time for that, or don’t know what items would make it the best. So being able to order something in, from a site like CoolStuff.com, is always a good idea. So without further ado, here are some pretty fun and unique gift ideas for the dad in your life this father’s day.
For the Foodie Dad
If you have a dad in your life that loves their food, loves to cook, or loves to bake, then there are a whole array of items that could work well for them. For the more serious foodie, to the fun foodie alike.
Sausage Guillotine – £26.99 // Bluetooth Grill Thermometer – £29.99 // Portable Smoothie Maker – £26.99 // Star Wars Waffle Iron – £45.99 // Himalayan Salt Block – £18.49
For the Gadget Dad
Who doesn’t love a fun gadget? I think they always work as a good gift as they are the kind of thing that you don’t always want to buy for yourself. How about any of these?
Pocket Drone – £45 // VR Headset – £24.99 // USB Charger – £12.99 // Photo Printer for iPhone – £149.99 // 3-in-1 Phone Lens – £17.99
For the Outdoorsy Dad
If your dad, partner, or granddad loves being outdoors, then there are plenty of gifts out there to make their time more enjoyable. Any excuse to be outdoors even more right?
Bird Feeder Gift Box – £30 // Eco-Grill – £5.49 // Lawn Game – £17.99 // Pocket Hammock – £9.99 // Smart Cycling Helmet – £119.99
For the Gym-Mad Dad
Whether they work out at home or at the gym, keeping fit is a must to keep up with little ones, right? Here are some ideas for helping the dad in your life keep healthy and fit, whether it is the gym, football, or rugby, and everything in-between.
Laundry Punching Bag – £11.99 // Body Cardio Scale – £149.99 // Shoe Cleaner – £12.99 // Portable Table Tennis Set – £19.99 // Headphones – £75.99
