Step away from the socks. Here are some great gift ideas.
You’d think after many years celebrating Father’s Day we would have nailed buying gifts, but dads can be notoriously tricky to buy for. Before you start frantically looking online for a present, make yourself a cup of tea and take 5 minutes to read our Father’s Day gift guide. We’ve got some great gift ideas and it means you won’t have to panic-buy your dad yet another pair of socks.

Now read on to see how you can spoil your dad this Father’s Day (17th June!)
Personalised beer tankard
Drinking out of a tankard is a wonderful way to enjoy a beer; your beer doesn’t go warm as your hand isn’t wrapped around the glass and they’re usually easier to hold when you’re standing around chatting with friends. Adding a personal message to a gift gives it a special touch and it’s a sure fire way that the receiver will never forget your gift (unless of course they lose it!)
Pick up a Personalised Glass Tankard from Prezzybox.com and they’ll engrave a message on it for your dad so you can let him know just how much you love and appreciate him.
Monotheme Spicy Pour Homme Eau de Toilette
Whether your dad likes to wear cologne for everyday or simply for special occasions, it’s a gift that is always appreciated. We love Monotheme’s Spicy Pour Homme Eau de Toilette, which has base notes of cedar and cashmere wood, softened with the flowery scents of jasmine and violet. You can shop for the fragrance at Marks and Spencer – but don’t forget to shop via Quidco to earn cashback!
Brewdog’s beer making kit
Is your dad a fan of craft beer? Well, thanks to a collaboration between Brooklyn Brew Shop and Brewdog, he can learn how to make Brewdog’s signature Punk IPA beer from the comfort of his own home.
This kit will make up to two 6-packs of beer, which we think isn’t too shabby. It contains a gallon glass fermenter, airlock, tubing, thermometer, tubing clamp, packet of sanitizer, stopper, blowoff attachment, instructions, a large sack of malted barley and 4 unique bags of hops.
This would be the perfect Father’s Day present for any beer connoisseur or home-brewer hobbyist dads out there. You can pick up one of these kits from Firebox but make sure you shop via Quidco to earn cashback!
Beard grooming gift set
Has your dad got a beard? If you’ve answered no then we’re afraid you’ll have to skip this gift idea. However, if you answered ‘Yes!’ then read on to find out more about this beard grooming kit. This fantastic Men Rock Nourishing Beard Care Kit “Beardy Beloved” available from Mankind, includes beard shampoo, beard balm, moustache wax and a beard comb. Treat your dad to this kit and keep him looking trim. Just like the hair on top of your head, the hair on your chin and cheeks deserve just as much TLC.
If your dad loves a bit of tech and likes to keep fit then we’ve found the perfect gift for you! Available from House of Fraser, the Armani Exchange Axt1001 Men’s Strap Smart Watch is one of the sleekest looking smart watches we’ve ever laid eyes upon.
This gorgeous watch can be synced up to your smart phone (it’s compatible with both Android and iPhone) to monitor and track your sleep and activity levels. It can also connect to your smartphone’s music so you can use it to start, stop, skip or go back with a press of a button. It can even be used for swimming, as it’s water resistant for up to 50 metres. We could go on, but we think you get the idea; it’s a good gift!
Step aside George Foreman, there’s a new grill in town. The Sage Adjusta Grill and Press is a step up from your average grill. It’s non-stick, comes with a drip tray to catch unwanted fat in and has a variable temperature that reaches a maximum of 220 degrees.
However, the best thing about is grill is that it has adjustable feet, so as well as being able to cook your usual meats you can also fry eggs, grill vegetables and even make pancakes. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so buying this grill for Father’s Day seems to make perfect sense. Snap up one of these from I Want One Of Those and earn cashback when you shop via Quidco.

Got a dad who is a bit of a thrill seeker? This gift from menkind.co.uk should scratch that adrenaline-seeking itch! Treat your dad to a 50-Lap Go Karting Race Experience for him and a mate. This is bound to put a smile on your dad’s face and yours too, because when you purchase this gift through Quidco, you’ll earn cashback!
