With Father’s Day fast approaching (Sunday 17 June), it’s time to celebrate our dads in style with DP’s definitive guide on presents for Dad.
From the wise words he gave you in your times of need to the stern handshake he gave your first boyfriend, dads are truly one of a kind, meaning this Father’s Day is a well-deserved excuse to spoil him rotten. That being said, we all know dads are notoriously hard to buy for. So we’ve brought in the experts at Burton to offer a helping hand on what to buy Dad for Father’s Day.
#1 The Upgraded Socks
It’s a classic present for a reason – dads will always make good use of a pair of socks. And although it may not sound like the most imaginative gift, in a sea of holey discoloured black pairs, this 5 pack of stylish socks will be a welcome bit of luxury. We love the quirky striped design and we’re pretty sure he will too!
#2 The Prostate Cancer UK Tee
Give a gift to your dad that helps a worthy cause. Introducing the Prostate Cancer UK T-shirt. Made from 100% cotton, £2 from each clothing item sold goes straight to the charity itself. Sporting the Prostate Cancer UK logo, the t-shirt is a great way to not only gift your pops but also help raise awareness of the work the charity does.
#3 The Well-Meaning Wallet
If your dad’s anything like mine, his wallet is battered, bruised and about 20 years old (which he claims is down to his children’s continuous use of it … whoops!) So why not treat him to a shiny new one this Father’s Day, and for extra Brownie points, tell him that for once he can keep it in his pocket and you’ll pay for dinner. To make it extra special fill the wallet with a photo of all his kids, transforming a practical gift into something a little more heart-felt.
#4 The Tasteful Tie
This fine stripe mint tie is a lovely gift to give this Father’s Day and is sure to make him smile. Smart, wearable and luxurious, the versatile colour and pattern will complement any suit. And when he looks down during a long day at work, the reminder that it was a present from you is guaranteed to brighten his day.
#5 The Retro Game
You’ve probably spent many an afternoon hearing him shout “PENALTY!!!” at the top of his lungs, so maybe it’s time to give the man what he wants, a retro little Penalty Shoot Out Game. The perfect desktop distraction, this compact game is a fun little treat for football-loving dads.
