With the UK Father's Day date fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about what Father's Day gifts you're going to pick out. Whether you're looking for gifts from your children for their daddy or even Father's Day ideas for your own dad; I've got plenty of fab ideas to treat dads with all different tastes.
When is Father's Day in the UK 2019?
The date of Father's Day 2019 in the UK is Sunday 16th June... that means it is just two weeks away! Read on to discover my top Father's Day gifts from sweet treats to child-free breaks.
"One of the greatest titles in the world is parent."
Hard working dads deserve a child-free break
Red Letter Days offer vouchers to suit every budget, and so many partners to choose from. This means no matter what your dad is into, from adrenaline fueled experience days to romantic nights away, you'll find it on their site. Find the full review of our Bateaux Windsor lunch cruise on the Thames* here.
"I don't like cricket, oh no, I love it!"
ICC Cricket World Cup official book and kid's handbook*
John is a massive fan of cricket. He used to play at county level, watches it as much as he can, and is trying to teach Squidgy to play too (with a mix of success!) The ICC Cricket World Cup official book and kid's handbook* are perfect Father's Day gifts for any sport loving dad like him! Especially as it allows dad to introduce the sport to his children (whether mum likes it or not!) They are also a great, budget friendly gift idea and can be ordered online online from Amazon.
"A warm cup of tea is just like a hug!"
Personalised Father's Day gifts for the win
"It is true that whiskey gets better with age. The older I get, the more I like it!"
A tipple for busy dads who like to relax with a small glass at the end of the week
"Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad."
Choosing the right Father's Day cards is as important as the gifts
Love Layla also offer gifts like wine bottle stickers (I know my mother-in-law will appreciate his!) so you can personalise what would otherwise be quite a boring, generic gift.
"Looking good isn't self-importance; it's self-respect"
Pick out some gifts that are not only useful but good quality too!
Black Leopard hair and skin care range*
My favourite thing is the fact they use natural ingredients meaning they're not only safe to use but also not harmful to the environment. I think we were both a bit taken aback by the colour of the hair styling cream (bright purple!) but it actually works amazingly well. Plus all the products smell fabulous.
Good quality razors for the tech mad dad
The Hydro 5 Sense* has shock absorbing technology and adjusts to the pressure applied. I can't vouch for it myself, but John has been using it, and tried it with and without (as there is a switch to turn it off!) and loves not only how it feels to use but the great shave it offers. The Hydro 5 Groomer* is the ideal gift for a dad who likes to make sure his sideburns and shave are neat and tidy in between hair cuts. Plus, with its removable head you can adjust the precision end to the hair length you desire.
"You are what you eat, so eat something sweet!"
If you're going to treat your dad for Father's Day, sweet treats are a great gift idea!

Sweet treat Father’s Day gifts don’t have to be unhealthy
