Dads are hardworking and we should thank them for everything they do! Follow this gift guide for dad to show how much he’s appreciated.

Where would be we without that fatherly figure in our lives? He’s taught us right from wrong, the rules of life as well as to not put our elbows on the table when eating dinner. This fatherly figure could be your dad, grandad or other half if you have children of your own! This gift guide for dad will give you some unique gift ideas to show your appreciation.

With Christmas coming up fast, now is the most perfect time to look for that special gift. Perhaps your husband continues to go above and beyond for your children, or your own father has stuck by you through thick and thin. Make this festive season one to remember and be thankful for everything they’ve taught you!

Beard care and grooming sets.

A gift guide for dad would not be complete without a grooming set! If your recipient sports a good old beard or moustache, then beard care and grooming accessories are an ideal gift. Shaving gift sets from The English Shaving Company include everything you’d need for a quality shave or trim and include all the necessary extras for impeccable aftercare too. Depending on the set you choose, the products inside can vary, including a selection of beard oils, balms and shampoos alongside razors, beard trimmers and brushes.

Food and beer!

As the saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so a good gift choice to consider is a hamper of his favourite foods, beers or wines. Have a browse in your favourite stores or online to see if there are any gift sets available, or better still, create your own with a little extra care and attention. Your recipient will be a lot happier to receive something with a personal touch than something directly from a shelf.


Dads love a good gadget. What else do you think their man caves are filled with? Keep them updated with the latest technology by seeing what’s out there. Perhaps they like to read books – an eBook or tablet is perfect. Others to consider, (depending on price range) include smartwatches, fitness trackers or if they’re a big kid at heart, even the latest games console.

Cosy clothing.

Especially with winter coming up fast, dad won’t say no to a toasty new jumper or some woolly socks! You’ll probably know the sort of style that he’ll go for, but if you’re feeling a little stuck or spoilt for choice, then taking him on a shopping trip and letting him choose his own clothes will work too. You don’t want to embarrass him and buy something he’ll never wear!

Kitchen appliances.

Gone are the days where women do all the cooking for the family – dads are just as clued up today! Whether you’re helping his hobby or encouraging a new skill, a new appliance could be just the trick. Consider a juice blender to make tasty smoothies or even think about a BBQ set for when those glorious summer months return.

Walking, hiking or sporting gear.

Whatever the hobby, a lot of it requires specialist gear. For the outdoorsy type, think walking boots, hiking sticks, weatherproof jackets and trousers, or even sporting equipment – all great gift ideas. This sort of equipment can quickly get expensive, however, so consider teaming up with other family members to get a collection of gifts together.

Gym accessories.

You could go for the gym membership, but like a lot of us, dad might find it difficult to get up early and trek to the gym before a day at work! Instead, why not treat him to a few accessories to enable him to get that work out from the comfort of his living room? Think of rowing machines, treadmills, or smaller items such as weights or a pull up bar.

A good day out with the family.

This one is a popular gift with dads; they simply want a lovely day out surrounded by everyone they love. Depending on the ages in your family, visit a farm, have a long walk in the countryside or simply have a great meal at a favourite restaurant. After all, the greatest gift anyone can receive is happiness and time with the family.
