9 Great Gift Ideas for Dad this Father’s Day
Dads in general don’t want anything, at least, that’s what they say. They probably do, they just can’t be bothered to think. So we’ve removed the thinking and given You 9 perfect Fathers Day ideas. Well done us. (Order now for guaranteed delivery, don’t say we didn't remind you. And don't forget the card!)
If dad is always out on an adventure…
One of our most popular creations is of course the mighty softshell jacket. Cosy enough for day-to-day wear but technical enough to protect from the elements. Water resistant, windproof, and breathable. Perfect for pottering about the garden or heading out on the daily walk. Available in 8 colours, but we recommend satsuma orange for that something a little bit different!
You never know whether you’re coming or going with the British weather. One minute the sun is shining bright and the next you’re absolutely drenched. So its always good to have a trusty lightweight packable rain mac to hand, and our Craven packaway has a 5k/5k waterproof rating. The overhead style is a crowd-pleaser, but it’s available as a zip up jacket too.
A trendy top suitable for anything from brisk walks in the countryside to full-blown workouts in the gym, the Cowick tech t-shirt is supersoft, lightweight, and complete with stretch fabric for eased movement. Plus it’s breatheable and quick-wicking so no uncomfortable sweat patches getting in the way of the action.
If dad likes to be stylish but he also likes to be comfy…
Dressing up and dressing down is easy with the right key pieces and this supersoft, sustainable cotton long-sleeved tee is a great choice for a comfy option without sacrificing style. The classic Breton stripe suits everybody and every wardrobe, so it’s a great go-to. Available in the classic white and navy striped design, or our favourite navy blue with daring brighter blue stripes.
Everybody likes a comfy hoody and this one is perfect whether you’re just popping to the shops, or spending the night in a beer garden. Not only is it soft and cosy, but it’s on-trend too. And the seaside print inspired by the lovely Yorkshire beach town of Whitby is perfect for the summer! It will quickly become a key feature of dad’s wardrobe.
The Oswald check shirt is timeless in both its style and its practicality, with short sleeves ready for a suitable summer look through the warmer months. To be worn buttoned-up with jeans for a smarter look, or open over a t-shirt with shorts for a more casual angle.
If you have no idea what size dad is and it’s probably too late to ask…
The backpack is great not only just for outdoor activity and adventures, but also day-to-day activity. Whether it’s the daily commute, or a reusable bag for your shopping – investing in a decent rucksack is always a good idea. Snaith is made using a water resistant fabric so rain and spills are the least of your worries, and there’s an internal laptop sleeve as well so you can work on the go.
We could all do with drinking more water, and we waste so much money and plastic rebuying individual bottles again and again on the go. It’s far better to have a reusable drinking flask to hand that you can fill up and take with you wherever you are headed. The Heaton flask keeps cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot too, so it’s a great all-rounder.
Would it really be Father’s Day if dad didn’t get a brand-new pair of socks? How about 3 pairs? Chuck in a 3-pack of Rigton merino trek socks and treat his feet to comfort and protection. They’re complete with a merino wool blend, a soft grip cuff, elastic arch support, and heavy cushioning all over the sock making them a sock that performs well for hiking, walking, and more.
