Father’s Day is fast approaching (21st June for those who need a reminder) and picking out the perfect gift for your old man can be tricky.
You want to give him the treatment he deserves but what will he like and what does your budget allow?
Fortunately, with the help of Quidco members, we’ve come up with the ultimate Father’s Day gift guide.
£15 & under
Personalised card from Funky Pigeon
Without a doubt, the undisputed champion of all special day celebrations is the card. And Father’s Day is no exception. Have a wander through Funky Pigeon’s selection of Father’s Day cards and you’re sure to find something that does the trick.
You can go down the avenue of sporty cards for your dad’s favourite sports team, movie cards with your dad taking centre stage in his favourite film’s poster, or risk opening a can of endless dad jokes with a novelty, funny card.
Alternatively, you can make your own and exploit the fantastic customisation opportunities from Funky Pigeon.
Delivery is speedy too in case you end up leaving it last minute!
BBQ tools from B&Q
Give you dad a Double O licence to grill with BBQ tools and accessories from B&Q.
As Father’s Day perfectly aligns with the start of summer, there’s one thing you can be sure of. Cooking outside. So why not utilise this opportunity to build up your dad’s arsenal with all the BBQ kit he’ll need to defeat the opposition and be crowned ‘king of the grill’. Louise has some advice on what to go for.
There’s plenty to choose from at B&Q with many crucial utensils available inside your £15 budget.
If you’re not sure what to go for specifically, there’s always the option of a B&Q gift card so he can pick something out for himself!
Classic dad socks from House of Fraser
If there’s one present you can, quite simply, never go wrong with, it’s a pair of classic dad socks. Although this might seem a bit of a cop-out, it’s not. Just ask Michael.
And if you have a budget to stick to, the perfect place for all the latest and greatest in dad socks is House of Fraser. You can keep things cheap and simple, or branch out to the more luxurious end, either way, there’s no chance of you putting a foot wrong.
Chocolate treats from Hotel Chocolat
A shoo-in gift for any father is some good quality choccy. And when it comes to tasty chocolate at affordable prices, you can’t beat Hotel Chocolat.
You don’t need to ask Quidco member, Sam, twice what he’d like for Father’s Day.
Release your inner Willy Wonka and pick out a chocolate gift box filled with all of Hotel Chocolat’s timeless classics: the champagne truffle, caramel cheesecake, cherry deluxe, and much more.
There’s a huge range to choose from, all at different price points so you can stick within budget or give your dad the golden ticket he deserves and push the boundaries for a real treat.
Make a homemade present with an art kit from Create and Craft
Sometimes when it comes to presents for dad, it’s not the gift, it’s the thought that counts.
So instead of buying a gift on behalf of your little ones, wrapping it up and handing it to dad, purchase an art kit from Create and Craft and have them make a homemade gift that he’ll never forget. Over to Joe to prove our point.
Create and Craft has a multitude of art kits to choose from, appropriate for all ages. So, if you fancy it, you can get involved alongside your kids!
£30 & under
Whisky from Master of Malt
The epitome of the dad drink, the king of the night-cap, is without a doubt whisky. And, although you might be cutting it slightly fine fitting this one into your £30-and-under budget, you won’t be scraping the barrel with whisky from Master of Malt.
A first-time whisky buyer may find things a little tricky when faced with the plethora of whisky types and prices on offer. It’s difficult to know which one to go for, but this is where Master of Malt steps in and does all the hard work for you.
As well as a huge variety of bottles to choose from, each whisky comes with details about the tastes you can expect and user reviews. This means you can stick to your budget and find the perfect whisky for dad (especially if your dad is Quidco member, Jason).
Shaving set from Gillette
One of the few constants in a non-bearded man’s life is a regular shave. If your dad falls under this category, then treating him to a top-of-the-range shaving set is bound to put a smile on that soon-to-be-smooth face.
Self-titled ‘the best a man can get’, Gillette is your best bet for the perfect shaving set. Your list of options is long and large featuring razors and their blades, shaving gels, moisturisers, and more.
There’s plenty to choose from and all within your £30-and-under budget.
Photo book from Photobox
If you want to send your dad on an express train to sentimental town, look no further than a photo book from Photobox.
A photo book is a wonderful way to bring back all those memories of special moments you and your dad have shared. You can fill your book with photos of previous birthdays, family holidays and any other wacky antics you’ve got up to together in the past.
If you don’t take our word for it, maybe Jackie can help to convince you.
Photobox has a myriad of photo books to choose from, some more expensive than others, but you’ll be able to find the ideal book comfortably within your budget.
£60 & under
Food and drink hamper from Hamper.com
If your dad is a bit of a foodie, like Jeanette’s, then a food and drink Hamper from Hamper.com is sure to hit the spot.
Hampers are always a great gift, particularly nearer the summertime when a potential picnic is on the cards. With Hamper.com’s range of food and drink hampers, you can choose from an assortment of wines, cheeses, biscuits, chutneys, jams, and much more.
The hampers are guaranteed to fit in your £60-and-under budget unless you’re in the mood to go all out and splash on a luxury hamper.
Football shirt from JD sports
Whilst it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, football tends to go hand in hand with dads. If your dad is fanatical about a certain team, kitting him out with a new football shirt might be the way to go.
Whether he’s interested in building his collection with the latest jersey or venturing down memory lane to an old classic kit, JD Sports has you covered.
If you’re like Emma and are worried about the current state of football, fear not. JD Sports’s extensive range of retro and modern kits means you’re sure to hit the back of the net.
JD Sports’s football shirts will be well within your £60-and-under budget, so you’ll have a bit of wiggle room to get him something else too!
Virgin Experience Days
Sometimes the material things just don’t quite cut it. If your dad is the sort of person that prefers a day out with the family or a once-in-a-lifetime activity, then Virgin Experience Days is the place to go.
You can get tickets to everything from supercar track days, to cheese and wine tasting. It all depends on what your dad likes and what your budget allows.
Most of the unforgettable activities at Virgin Experience Days allow for two or more guests, so you and your family can go along too.
