Most dads, as we all know, have habits. From the good (linking arms with us in the street), to bad (leaving damp towels on the beds and sofas), to the downright ugly (toe nail clippings scattered all over the bathroom floor).
We've come up with a few Unusual Father's Day Gift Ideas that might help to hone some of his habits.
Dad’s Tin of Wonders (£10.00)
Dad's Tin of Wonders is a tin in which your dad can keep all his "treasures" safely in one place. By treasures, we mean utter rubbish, for example, a mobile phone charger that no longer works, rusty Alan keys, dead batteries and bent screws.
Set Him a Reminder
Whose dad ever actually remembers to phone them? Set a reminder in his mobile phonebook to call you and, you never know, he might just drop you a line. Set it for a time when you’re both free and it might just become a regular occurrence!
Dynamic Daddy Notebook (£22.00)
Goodbye disorganised dad, hello control! A great present for the working man who is very busy and doesn’t always know where he is and what he’s doing. He’ll be able to pencil in as many meetings as he likes in his new luxury notebook.
Case of Award Winning British Beer (£47.00)
Although this gift isn’t exactly taming the drinking habit, it might just encourage your dad not to go down the pub! The Case of Award Winning British Beer makes a great present for Father’s Day too! What’s more, it includes 12 beers from small, independent breweries that have won regional, national and/or international awards.
Dads aren’t exactly well-known for enviable style so why not take him on a shopping trip and kit him out for his next special event? Okay, so it’s not always the case that Dads have no style, I know that my dad actually has a much better fashion sense than me, but if your dad needs updating, then a shopping trip will make a great gift this Father’s Day.
Dad’s Chair Ancient Monument Metal Sign (£6.00)
This is perfect for when you bring your other half around to the parent’s house. They’ll know precisely where not to sit! The metal sign, inspired by the vintage Steam Railway Company signs, has “Dad’s Chair Ancient Monument” written on it, so his sitting habits will never be disrupted by any visitor!
Pair this with a healthy recipe book and you’ll soon break your dad’s unhealthy lifestyle habits! The Kitsound Blutooth Activity Tracker monitors your movement and sleep activity, measures steps, distance and calories burned. What’s more, it’s waterproof! Your dad can walk, run and cycle until his heart’s content and it will be recorded too, so there’s no excuse why he won’t be getting fitter soon!
