Helping our customers make informed decisions
Father’s Day is fast approaching, but if you’ve yet to pick up the ideal present to show your dad you care on June 15th, don’t panic! We’ve gathered together a few ideas to suit everyone from working dads to new fathers, so check out our gift guide below (and don’t forget to pick up a card!) Happy shopping!
Balancing family and work can be a difficult task for modern men, so there’s no better time to reward today’s busy working fathers. This Quadra Portfolio Briefcase Bag is a perfect choice, boasting a detachable shoulder strap and an internal organiser that’s built to house everything from notebooks and stationary to phones and wallets, and this Premier Men’s Business Tie is great for office-proud dads, with twenty four colourful designs on offer.
Whilst socks might have a reputation as something of a cliché catch-all gift, no-one can deny that they ultimately make a practical present that everyone can make use of. These Honeycomb Top Argyle Socks are a smart choice that’s perfect for almost any occasion, but for those looking to make more of a statement this Father’s Day, these Greatest Dad Novelty Socks are a fun way to show you care, and even come in a special gift box, perfect for gift-wrapping.
If you’re buying on behalf of smaller shoppers, this pack of three children’s bibs will make a great gift for new dads. With a fun ‘I Love My Daddy’ message and a choice of boy’s baby blue and girl’s soft pink shades, they’re a fun and easy way to show some appreciation this Father’s Day, and their cotton rich build will also ensure that babies stay clean and comfortable throughout dinnertime.
Slippers are another great gift idea for Father’s Day, ensuring that your dad’s feet are kept comfy and warm throughout the year. These Men’s Suede Mule Slippers are a great lightweight choice for dads who want easy on-off access, and these Mirak Stag Men’s Classic Slippers are a perfect for those who prefer a more secure, fitted feel, with each design available in a selection of different colours.
