On Sunday 21st June 2015, dads, granddads and great granddads all over the UK will be celebrated and appreciated for their ongoing love and support.
Luckily for us, a father’s paternal instinct means that he’ll love us unconditionally, so no matter what gift he receives, he’ll be chuffed with it! Let’s be honest, we’ve all handed over a handmade card and a box of Celebrations, and hoped for the best for many years. This year though, why not swap the burnt homemade biscuits and dodgy box of beer for one of the following unusual Father’s Day gifts?
We’ve compiled four of our most unusual gifts for Father’s Day, one from each price category so that, whatever cash you have to spare, you can show your dad just how unique he really is!
1. £20 and Under
A Comprehensive Guide of Ideas That Changed the Way We Think
Most dads think they know it all, but there must be at least one idea in this 960-page book that he hasn’t already heard of! From Democracy to Cultural Revolution and the Kant Enlightenment to the Oedipus complex, this guide contains 1001 big ideas that have revolutionised our world.
Learning to play the Ukulele should be on most people’s ‘bucket list’ of things to do in their lifetime. So why not get your dad started? With a carry case and tuition book included, the Great Gift Company’s Ukulele is suitable for beginners.
The instrument is becoming increasingly popular too, so tell your dad he’s ‘down with the kids’ and he’ll be strumming a tune on his new Ukulele by the end of Father’s Day!
A Giant Garden Thermometer
This tool is one that cannot be hidden in the garage! It is greater than 1 metre in height and is an attractive addition to any garden, courtyard, terrace or balcony. Your dad will appreciate its practicality since it measures the temperature in both Centigrade and Fahrenheit. It also has a pointed metal end so that it is easily inserted into the ground and moves around the garden easily!

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
If you’re looking to splash the cash on one of these unusual Father’s Day gifts, look no further than this ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’ wall art plaque. Yes, that’s right, the words from the Monty Python film, Life of Brian, are spelled out in original, old playing cards. What’s more, they’ve been mounted on thick cream card and framed behind glass in a painted wooden frame.
So there they are! Four of the most unusual Father’s Day gifts the Great Gift Company have to offer this year! Weird? That’s for you to decide. Whatever they are, they’ll show your dad you think he’s wonderful and unique (they may even make him laugh a bit too!).
