PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER
For dads on the go or who spend a lot of time on their phone, for work or socialising, a portable phone charger is a must-have product for dads! For everyone really! Never get caught out and about with a dead phone again. This power bank can also charge other devices too, making it a useful and compact gadget for all tech-loving dads! It can charge your phone up to 3 times and it fits in your pocket – or dad’s pocket!
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT DAD BOOK
This novelty gift is a great idea for kids to give to dad, as a meaningful Father’s Day gift idea that allows them to personalise it too. This What I Love About Dad book will be sure to get some smiles and laughs on Father’s Day and be cherished always.
WATERPROOF LAPTOP BAG
Keeping dad’s gadgets protected can be done in style with the trendy and modern stylish laptop bag. Waterproof with leather straps and detail so even getting caught in the rain need not be a worry! Check out their full range of gifts for dad, from laptop cases to cufflinks, wallets, masculine jewellery and more.
NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
For dads who love to listen to their favourite tunes, a set of noise-cancelling headphones are a must. Especially great for long transits or gym sessions – or blocking out the sound of noisy kids. These Bose headphones are great. However, if you are looking for a more budget-friendly alternative, these headphones are a great cheaper Father’s Day gift alternative.
Giving dad the ability to play his daggy dad music whenever and wherever is something he will love! Get dad a portable, waterproof Bluetooth speaker like the UE BOOM. Tough enough for the outdoorsy dad or techy enough for all the other dads! There are smaller versions perfect for singing in the shower… or packing in a weekend bag for a boys trip. Check out the WONDERBOOM instead.
Bring back some nostalgia with dad’s favourite retro gaming console like the Nintendo NES Classic loaded with games he played back in the days before he had so many responsibilities! This is a great Father’s Day gift the whole family will enjoy and a perfect way for dad and the kids to find a new shared hobby. Just make sure you remind them to get outdoors for some sunshine too.
GAME OF THRONES BOOK SET
Now that winter has been and gone, and the show has finished, give dad a new Game of Thrones fix with the paperback book set. They are also available on Kindle and Audible versions. Or if he isn’t such a fan of reading, there’s always the DVD box set so he can relieve all his favourite moments again.
NOVELTY SUPERHERO T-SHIRT
All dads love pretending they are superheroes, and there is nothing cooler for them than hearing it from their kids. This novelty superhero dad shirt is sure to give him a nice ego boost as he wears it with pride.
The Ryobi One+ range are super cool. Even I can use them! What I love most is the fact that the battery packs switch between the different tools so you can charge it up and do all your cordless work on a single battery pack. You can see some of our favourites. We especially love the Ryobi One+ hedge trimmer and for a quick tidy up outdoors, especially after mowing, the compact blower is really effective and lightweight. Don’t forget the battery pack as it is not included with all the tools in the range!
If you’ve got a dad (or husband) who loves photography and trying out new gadgets, a drone might be a perfect gift for the dad who has everything! There are some really cheap highly rated entry level drones, such as the DJI Tello. We have this one and it’s a bit of fun taking it to new places and capturing unique scenery. Or if you want something a bit more flashy, with better quality video and photo resolution, the DJI Spark is a popular choice for that next level of drone photography.
CAMP LIGHT & FAN COMBO
If your family love to go camping, this cool camp torch and fan combo is a great addition to dad’s camping equipment! I love that this is a two in one product. Less is best when it comes to getting out in the great outdoors, so dual-purpose products are a winner!
5 YEAR PLANNER
Why should planning just be for the ladies? Men need organisation tools too and this planner is as simple as it gets and lasts 5 years! That’s right… a 5 year planner! It includes calendar spreads and daily boxes for keeping track of plans and events, for working dads or just busy dads! Best of all, this Father’s Day gift is under 15.

Funny GOLF T-SHIRT
Give dad a laugh (and everyone else) with a funny golf shirt announcing his average skills to the world.
BEARD GROOMING KIT
Bearded dads will appreciate this self-care bundle to keep their man fuzz in great condition. And the rest of the family will appreciate it too! This beard grooming kit comes with all the essentials to keep beards tidy and soft. Beard oil, balm, comb, scissors and more, all beautifully gift-boxed.
Start a family tradition of family movie nights at home by getting dad his own projector to screen favourite movies, home videos and sports games up on the wall or out in the backyard. So much fun!
We love playing board games and card games as a family. Sometimes we play family-friendly games, like Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit. Other times we have game nights with friends and play the not so kid-friendly games, like Cards Against Humanity. A fun game that can go either way, with family-friendly and adults-only expansions is Exploding Kittens. It is bound to give dad a laugh and bring back the tradition of non-tech game nights too!
DIGITAL COOKING THERMOMETER
If dad sees himself as a bit of a grillmaster, help him be the BBQ king he aspires with this digital meat thermometer. Waterproof, compact and easy to use. No undercooked meat disasters in dad’s future now!

LONELY PLANET BOOKS
If dad is someone who loves to travel, or happens to be planning his next trip, a Lonely Planet book could be the perfect gift to inspire more wanderlust. Their Ultimate Travelist book makes for a great coffee table book and one to flip through when seeking inspiration for the next adventure.
BREAKFAST SANDWICH MAKER
Instead of just making dad breakfast for Father’s Day, why not give him a gift that will keep making him breakfast! This breakfast sandwich maker is a bit of a novelty but great for fans of a good old Maccas McMuffin!
NOVELTY BEER GLASS
If the dad’s in your life love beer, this novelty beer glass is sure to give him a laugh! Pair it with his favourite craft beer and he is all set for a Sunday afternoon of watching sport on TV and enjoying his favourite beverage.
For the travel-loving fathers, a scratch map is a fun way to record all the places he goes around the world. We have one of these and my husband loves coming home and scratching off new destinations pretty much the second we get back from an international trip. It’s good fun and a conversation starter too when we have visitors who spot it in the hallway.
