Mother’s Day has been and gone, and now its time to panic buy your Dad a gift this Sunday! If you are still unsure when it is, it’s on Sunday 17th June this year. The problem is, you want to get your Dad something special, but you don’t want to get him yet another novelty bottle opener. The other things, you don’t want to have to spend a lot of money either. Here’s how you can get Dad something nice on a budget!
For A Foodie Father
If your Dad’s a bit of a foodie, don’t just buy him a standard pack of treats, get him a pack of these fancy gourmet popcorn! If he’s a more adventurous eater, gift him with a pack of BBQ flavoured mealworms and turn it into a bushtucker trial!
For The DIY Dad
Dads have often got a summer project planned. From building a nice wood decking in the garden, or fixing the broken hinge he’s been meaning to do for a year. Either way, he’ll be needing the right set of tools so buy him this handy 4 in 1 gadget pen and he won’t ask you an extra hand!
For The Well-Groomed Dad
If your Dad’s proudly sporting a dapper-looking moustache or a great big bushy beard maybe a nice grooming kit would go down well. Get him a beard comb to tame his unruly scraggle. If he enjoys spending a bit of time twisting his beard into a nice curly point, gift him this fragrant moustache wax.
For The King Of Dad Jokes
Q — What’s the best time to go to the dentist?
A — At tooth-hurty!
For more painful jokes for your dad to bust out at the right time, you could get him the book of Terribly Good Dad Jokes. You might live to regret this next one. If your Dad is a bit of a practical joker he might enjoy these fiery joke sweets to fool family and friends with!
For The Gardening Dad
Perhaps your Dad is a perennial gardener and would love a few additions to his precious green house? Gift him this Little Book of Allotment Tips for a fiver! If’s he’s a bit limited by potting space you could give him this dinky grow-it-yourself chilli plant.
For The Active Dad
Was your Dad doing his best to ignore the Beast from the East earlier this year? Make sure he’s ready for the next time your snowed in with these useful mini ice grips! If your Dad’s a bit of keen road runner or cyclist then these bright heel indicators will keep him visible for those late evening sessions.
For The Dad Who Likes Just About Anything
If none of the above options are quite right for your Dad, you could always get him something a bit out there. Serve him a nice green beer to kick back with in front of the World Cup!
