Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019 - Creative Ideas For Dad

Published: 14/06/2019

Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for - that is, if you want your gifting efforts to get a bit more creative than a B&Q gift voucher or a six-pack of beer. With Father’s Day just around the corner here in the UK, we thought it might be of use to our clients to provide some out-of-the-box present ideas to surprise Dad, with something a little different, this year. These are the best (and most creative) Father’s Day gift ideas we’ve come up with…

The sweetest box of chocolates you’ve ever seen

A box of Cadbury Hero’s might not exactly sound like the most creative gift idea on earth, but website Prezzy Box has managed to make the humble confectionary just that. Available only in the UK, this customisable box of Cadbury’s classic chocolates will feature a special message to dad, as written by you, on it.  The perfect prezzie for super dads with a sweet tooth. Orders yours at https://www.prezzybox.com/personalised-cadbury-hero-s-tub.aspx

Gift website Prezzie Box also offers various other personalised treats including a gin & tonic set, a Toblerone bar featuring the recipient’s name and special Father’s Day smash cups for the ultimate choccy-lover.

A sentimental gift for new dads

If your partner has recently experienced the joy of becoming a father, creative online retailer Not On The High Street has some fantastic options to make him tear up this June 16, such as its range of customisable children’s picture books to read with your little one. Remind dad of what a superhero he is with this super adorable tale of a bear (who likes all the same things daddy does!) or opt for the ultimate kid-pleaser Peppa Pig in a tongue-in-cheek story about the beloved pig and his dad. These are just a few of the many customisable book options to choose from.

The perfect (affordable) gift for retro dads

This year supermarket Aldi has really outdone itself with its Father’s Day gift offering. Our favourite is this retro tape deck boombox, available for just £29.99, exclusively online as part of its Father’s Day special buys. Perfect for the dad who still has his old cassette tapes lying around in a drawer somewhere. We’re sure that there are plenty of you out there!

Discover dad’s history

If dad’s not so into material items, a delve into his family history could be the answer to all your Father’s Day gift dilemmas. Ancestry.com is currently offering 25% off AncestryDNA, which allows you to explore records related to your family history and build a family tree. Discovering dad’s family history for him, we think, is a really special way to show how significant he is to you this June 16! Check out this offer here.

Bring home the bacon

Fathers with a foodie side will be completely wowed by this Make Your Own Bacon kit by Firebox. The kit includes all the tools you need to cure your own delicious pork products, in three different flavours. What more is there to say? Dads generally love bacon!

Firebox also has many other “make your own” boxes available such as these halloumi or beer cookie kits, so there’s something to suit every taste.

The best experience presents for dad

Experience packages or days out are another fun way to celebrate how fantastic dad is. Some of our favourites include:

  • The Escape Room challenge: Breaking out of a fantastical situation is a great way to bond and can be enjoyed by the whole family. There are escape rooms all over the country. We love Liverpool’s Breakout, but if you’re based in London, check out this article.
  • A spot of English heritage: Whether dad’s into gardening or classic cars, there are plenty of heritage sites across the country making for a wonderful day out. For lots of fantastic ideas take a look at this article by English Heritage.
  • The Crystal Maze experience: Relive one of the UK’s best-loved TV shows in this fully immersive adventure activity.
  • Become a Ninja Warrior: Based in Stoke and Wigan, the Ninja Warrior UK course allows participants to tackle an extreme obstacle course, to become a fully acclaimed ninja warrior
