Father’s Day 2022 falls on Sunday 19th June and it’s time to start looking for the perfect gift for dad, or perhaps for the partner of your children, especially if they’re younger. Whatever your dad or partner is into, I think I’ve got some great gift ideas here for you. Scroll all the way down to the bottom for your chance to win. I’ve got three Father’s Day prizes for you, a fantastic Welsh Dragon watch from Toff London, two copies of “How To Grow Your Family” by Adam Shaw, and the Big Biscuit Box! But first, take a look at these fantastic gift ideas.
Food Fit for a Dad
My personal favourite dad’s food gift would be The Chuckling Cheese Co’s “Dad is the Best” gift box. This cheesily packaged gift box includes two different types of cheese – a vintage and a spicy, a large jar of Chutney, crackers, and two alcoholic miniatures, Spiced Rum and Banoffee Rum. Ideal for an after dinner treat!
Pair it with this decadent Nut Gift Tray for the ultimate foodie gift. And the box is perfect for holding screws or bits and bobs when it’s empty too.
For the dad with the sweet tooth, I’d recommend either, or BOTH of the above gift packs – because there’s no such thing as too much chocolate! The Cadbury’s Chocolate Dad’s Gift Set includes a No1 Dad gift box and large bar, a box of heroes, and a variety of chocolate bars, so he’s bound to find something he likes there. Or the amazing Green & Blacks Organic Ultimate Bar Gift Set includes 10 different bars, ideal for a lover of dark chocolate, although it contains milk and white too!
Drinks for Dad too!
Get some quality beer for your dad this Father’s Day from Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer. They sell a range of beer, spirits and gift cards, but I’d recommend the pick and mix collection boxes. You can choose what your dad would like best in this box of 12 500ml bottles of beer and cider.
For the wine drinker this Chablis Father’s Day Gift from Sparkling Direct includes a refreshing bottle of Chablis, ideal for any special occasion, and comes presented in a beautiful wooden gift box, branded with Happy Father’s Day. Once the wine is drunk, this gift box is ideal for storing small things in, so it can continue to be used! If Chablis isn’t his thing, you can get red wine, white wine or prosecco options.
Or maybe dad loves a bit of champers? Then Say It With Champers! Take it up to the maximum decadence level with a bottle of champagne and a personalized label to make it that extra special gift.
If your dad is a fan of spirits at all, then add a stunning personalised whisky glass like this one from The Engraver’s Guild. The bubbled base makes it weighted perfectly for a nightcap or after dinner drink and I think that having your dads name on it will really make it feel special to him, and remind him of the occasion every time he takes a drink.
Or if beer and cider aren’t your dads thing, perhaps he’d like to try some coffee? Two Chimps offer their own coffee blends in lots of different styles and you can choose your grind. You can buy a one off bag, or a subscription box. They even offer coffee courses! For Father’s Day they’ve created Dad’s the Word Coffee Blend, which is something special. It offers rare Geisha coffee beans, grown and harvested in the Bolaven Plateau, Laos. It has full-bodied flavours of cherry cola, hints of toffee apple, and a tickle of pineapple flavour. Yes please! And if you’re looking for my personal coffee maker recommendation, we bought the De’Longhi Magnifica Automatic Bean to Cup machine during the first lockdown and have used it daily since.
To go with it why not buy him a personalized hot drinks container perfect for home, in the garden or on the go, such as this Ornate Monogram Travel Mug from Boutique Gifts, who have loads of personalized Father’s Day Gifts if this one doesn’t suit. Dad will never be drinking lukewarm coffee again!
The final suggestion I have for your Father’s Day drink options is the DrinkMate. This is brand new to the UK market this year and is a versatile home beverage carbonator – adding fizz and sparkle to your drinks! It can carbonate any beverage from tea, juice, cocktails, sports drinks and everything in between. You definitely want to check it out, because a lot of dads out there would love to receive this for Father’s Day. And if you’re buying for your partner, well… you’ll be able to use it too!
Fulfill his Hobbies
If your dad likes to read then I highly recommend buying him books for Father’s Day. Giving him books gives him the gift of imagination, time spent for himself, and keeping him mentally sharp. My top recommendation is this Game of Thrones box set. Although the series isn’t finished yet, the books are an amazing read that I would recommend to any lovers of fantasy. And way, way better than the TV series adaption! But if an epic fantasy isn’t quite his thing, Books2Door have collated lots of options for Father’s Day Books. Other great picks on there include The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 5 Box Set, for fans of sci-fi and comedy, the Dexter Complete Collection, 8 books of crime and thrills, or for the dad who fancies himself a bit of a survivalist or an outdoorsman, the Bear Grylls Survival Skills 10 Book Collection will have him building a shelter in the garden in no time.
If you don’t think your dad would like a physical book, perhaps he doesn’t have space, doesn’t like clutter, or mostly reads on the go and wouldn’t want to carry a book around with him, you could also consider an Amazon Kindle. The new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof so you can even read in the bath, whilst fishing or boating etc. without worrying about it getting wet.
If dad is interested in gardening or enjoys eating food, then Grow Sow Simple’s Seedcell would make a fantastic gift. Seedcells boxes come with a variety of plants, ready to grow and perfect for small spaces or window sills. No green finger required to produce cucumber, cherry tomatoes, lettuce and rocket from the Salad Patch. There are also vegetables and herb options and they’re all only £14.99.
The perfect gift to go with some fresh grown salad or herbs would be How To Grow Your Family by chef and foodie Adam Shaw, who runs At Dad’s Table on Instagram, and has a website with free recipes too. How To Grow Your Family contains over 110 delicious, global, nutrient-rich dishes that are suitable from the first trimester on and the whole family can enjoy. Every recipe in this book can be enjoyed by adults so it doesn’t really matter how old dad is, but it’s especially suitable for new dads. I love that this book doesn’t assume kids need bland, beige food. The range of recipes is amazing, from ramen, to jambalaya, to Thai curry, to tacos. It even has vegetarian, vegan and pescatarian options. This is how cooking should be, full of flavour and fun, but still appropriate and nutritionally balanced.

Does your dad like grilling on the BBQ? My partner certainly does. A gift of some BBQ tools would be well appreciated in this household. If you’re looking at gifts for someone who likes to grill, then consider some tools from Traegar. Traegar are the makers of the original wooden pellet grill, but their incredibly high quality BBQ tools can be used on any BBQ.
Let Dad get his Game On!
Video games are for everyone these days. They let you blow off some steam and have fun, sometimes alone, sometimes with other people. Giving dad the gift of gaming – and a bit of peace and quiet to enjoy it – could be the perfect gift for him. Whether he plays on Xbox, PlayStation or PC, I bet there’s a game that he wants. We have an Xbox, so I chose some brand new Xbox Games from Very.co.uk for my husband for Father’s Day – Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands (a spin off from the Borderlands franchise), and Dying Light 2, the sequel to the best selling action thriller zombie hunter. You could also buy him new accessories, whether it’s a brand new gaming chair, or a new wireless headset like the Turtle Beach Stealth 600.
A Stylish Accessory
If dad is a watch lover then I’d recommend one of the awesome watches sold by Toff London. They offer personalized and picture watches. You can have your own photos on the watch face, or one of dad’s favourite animals, hobbies or sports. There really is something for everyone. I love this Welsh Flag Watch myself, but if Wales isn’t your dads favourite thing, you’re bound to find something to suit. You could combine it with a multiple slot Watch Box like the one below if he has more than one watch. This will keep everything safe and very well presented.

There are lots of other accessories you can buy dad for Father’s Day. Maybe he’d like some new socks or underwear, or a brand new belt. Perhaps cufflinks, sunglasses or even a designer baseball cap like the one above from Mainline Menswear. Mainline Menswear have a wide range of designer clothes, footwear and accessories so you’re bound to find something that suits. Or maybe he’d like this extremely stylish personalised wallet featured below, which is engraved with initials for that extra special touch. The Engraver’s Guild have tons of products that would suit any gift recipient, all with engravings or personalization, which creates a gift you can’t buy anywhere else.
Or how about a fantastic new Gym Bag from Trendhim, which is perfect for anyone who works out, but also for the dad who likes to get away for the day, whether it’s heading out for a weekend city break, or just a day’s relaxing fishing. One of the things I love about this bag is how small it folds away when you’re finished with it – no more bulky storage!
There are some amazing Father’s Day Experiences available from Red Letter Days, from Supercar Driving experiences, to weekends away or rounds of golf. Giving an experience is perfect for a dad who doesn’t need any more “stuff” but would like to do something, or just to encourage him to get out and do something new and different. Memories and experiences are something incredibly precious.
Or maybe your dad would like to feel young at heart and get himself a Skateboard from Skates.co.uk? A lot of older adults are taking up Skateboarding these days, it works on your core muscles, balance and is fun! It’s also something dads and their kids can do together, so it could help dad bond with the kids at the local park. If he doesn’t quite have the balance for Skateboarding, you could also look at rollerblades or scooters for a fun family activity.
Or how about this for something different – an annual subscription to Masterclass! Masterclass offers digital classes from people who are at the top of their skillsets. From cooking, to singing, to writing, to dancing, to sports and fashion and so much more – there’s something for everyone. Give dad the gift of learning and entertainment in one.
A bit of Pampering for the End of the Day
If your dad shaves his beard, have you considered a luxury beard kit? The Leponix Shaving Kit for Men includes a razor and replacement blades, as well as loads of products to help them have a good shave, from shaving cream, beard oil, after shave balm and more.
Coraline Skincare are an independent family business creating natural products for healthy, happy skin. This minty fresh soap bar is an ideal gift for dad this Father’s Day. It has peppermint, lemon and activated charcoal to deeply cleanse and tone. It smells absolutely amazing!
Finally, if all else fails and you’re just sitting there umming and ahhing because your dad or partner is one of those truly absolutely impossible people to buy for – I know a few of those myself – then consider a gift voucher. This will enable someone to choose their own present and really get something they want for themselves. Giving someone the gift of going shopping is a pretty good one! I have two recommendations:
Prezzee Smart Father’s Day eGift Card – The Prezzee Smart eGIft Card can be spent at over 170+ brands, including big name brands like Currys, John Lewis, Argos and B&Q, and many many more options, including shops, groceries, restaurants and experiences. It’s sent via email and then you can choose from a long list and redeem your voucher. I love that there are Father’s Day themes you can pick to send on the digital card as this makes it a little bit extra special.
VEX Gift cards from Voucher Express can be redeemed from around 150 brands, so he’s bound to find the perfect gift. They’re available in digital or in a physical gift card format – handy for the dad who would prefer to spend a physical card. You could combine a shopping trip with him with a lovely lunch out, and give the gift of spending time together.
