It’s Father’s Day on 21st June, and in honour of these great men, we’ve got a list of the best gifts for the best men in our lives… plus some of the best dad gags out there! Time to laugh and get inspired – a bit like hanging out with dad really!
I used to hate facial hair…
… but then it grew on me
There are tons of great gift ideas for dad in the grooming department. Whether your dad has a magnificent moustache, a big beard or is clean cut, you’ve got luxury beard oil, hip shaving and wash kits, aftershave and a whole range of electric trimmers and shavers to choose from.
I'm reading a book on the history of glue...
... I just can't seem to put it down
Wallpaper and paint might seem a bit boring a gift for dad, but new tools are very welcome gifts if your dad is a DIYer. Hand tools and power tools are a classic dad gift and you can choose from drills, screwdrivers and angle grinders, or maybe a tool box, tool belt or set of quality paint brushes for his next decorating project.
I was interrogated over the theft of a cheese toastie…
… wow, they really grilled me
He might not like the kitchen, but dads love a good barbecue and BBQ gear is a great Father’s Day gift. The season is just starting, so make sure he is a BBQ hero with some new kit. If your pocket money doesn’t stretch to a new barbecue, then how about a new set of tongs, skewers, an apron or grill pans and smoking plates. We have BBQs and accessories galore to choose from across all budgets.
Why do bees hum?
... Because they don't know the words
Does your dad love gardening? There are so many great gifts for gardening dads for Father’s Day from a pressure washer or lawnmower to hand tools and bedding plants, if your budget doesn’t run to power tools! Vegetable seeds, fertilisers and planters, and bird care products would always be welcome for dads who love pottering around in the garden or allotment.
What’s Forrest Gump’s password?
If your dad loves tech, why not get him a retro record player? Everyone loves music, and you can dance to his tune as he spins discs on his big day! A drone is another great gift for Father’s Day, he can show off his driving skills in the air.
I'm not addicted to brake fluid…
… I can stop whenever I want
It might seem dull to some, but if you love your car, getting quality valet wax, polish and other accessories will make your dad and your car very happy. Gift ideas for the car include good chamois leather for smear-free windows, glass cloths for keeping sticky finger and wet nose prints at bay and a boot organiser and cool bag combo for example.
Is this pool safe for diving?
... It deep ends
Who doesn’t want a slip and slide in the garden? Just because he’s got kids doesn’t mean he isn’t still a kid himself. You could invest in an inflatable pool for the garden, or a giant inflatable crisp packet for the beach. Or you can let Dad show off his rowing skills with a classic dinghy. Don’t forget an electric pump otherwise he might not thank you for any of it!
What lies at the bottom of the ocean and twitches?
... A nervous wreck
Even if you don’t live by the sea, a lot of dads are into fishing so why not get him some new fishing gear? New line spools, weights, floats and lures won’t break the bank, but if you want something a bit special, why not a new landing net or keep net? Rods, reels and accessories will keep all angling dads happy on the river bank, beach or boat!
Did you hear about the fire at the circus?
... It was in tents
Safety first when it comes to camping, but as summer is on its way, why not treat dad to some new camping gear. We’ve got a variety of family tents and a huge selection of camping furniture, gadgets and accessories. If you’re off to a festival or having a staycation this summer, then why not let dad make fire, as man loves to do, with a firepit this Father’s Day? Keep it well away from any tents though!
Two guys walk into a bar…
… the third guy ducks
Let dad get creative on Father’s Day with a beer, cider or wine making kit and don’t forget the accessories, from thermometers to bottles and even a bar gazebo for the garden!
What do you call a dog that can do magic?
... A Labracadabrador
Well, it could be seen as a gift for the dog but if dad does the walking, why not buy a new lead for the dog, whether he or she does magic or not. Or your gift could be to take over dog walking duties from dad so he can get a lie in.
Have a great day Dads, we love you and your jokes!
