Father’s Day this year is on 17th June. Many children and mothers struggle when trying to come up with ideas for a gift to buy Daddy or Grandpa on this special day. BubbleBum’s own mum blogger Laura, shares her top ten Father’s Day Gifts, with prices ranging from a few pounds to a few hundred pounds… but whatever the price, a gift on Father’s day is always priceless!
The Fitbit is the ultimate health and fitness tracker and with many more people health conscious this is a super little gadget that can track your steps, heart rate, sleep pattern and even get call and text alerts. There is many types of Fitbits and here at BubbleBum we love the Charge 2 available at Argos from round £120!
Another great little gadget for Dad for running, training, cycling or generally just chilling out is wireless Bluetooth Beats by Dr Dre. These are pretty cool and come with ear hook headphones, a microphone, remote and volume control, and are even water resistant. You can pick these up at Currys, but they are a little pricey at £150 a pair!
With many Dads now being the main chef of the home and master of the BBQ, a personalised apron is a lovely gift and at a cost of around £15 will not break the bank. You can personalise your Dad’s apron with funny things he says, his favourite band, or the football team he supports. You can create your own personalised and special apron on Funky Pigeon for less then £20.
For connoisseur Dads and Grandads, a lovely whiskey decanter and tumbler set is the perfect gift when coupled with his favourite whiskey. J by Jasper Conran at Debenhams has the perfect set for £45 and is simple but sleek and will be the perfect gift for Dad to relax.
Simple but stylish, the Tie Pin is perfect for a Dad of any age, from pins that can be worn every day, to pins that can be worn on special occasions. Hugo Boss have a great range of tie pins ranging from £40 – £80 and there is something for every taste!
The Amazon Echo Dot is also another neat device that Dads will love, available on Amazon for £49.99 (although Amazon often discounts these in flash sales!). The Echo Dot is a hands free, voice controlled device that plays music, controls smart home devices, sets alarms, reads the news, and much more. Your Dad will think this is the best thing since sliced bread and Grandads love it too!
Dad will always be grateful for a basket filled with his favourite treats from his favourite chocolate bars, sweets, to his favourite drink. This is a lovely little touch to show Dad that you love him loads by getting him all his favourite things! Coupons are the ultimate Father’s Day Gift and is great for younger kids as a gift to Dad. These can be handmade by your kids at home or you can download some printable coupons for free at Tinyme. Coupons for breakfast in bed, a car wash, a foot rub, extra hugs are all special gifts for Dad and are truly priceless.
What Dad doesn’t like coffee? Get Dad a coffee machine so he can relax and have a delicious cup of coffee anytime he likes! There is a lot of different coffee machines on the market, the Tassimo My Way Coffee Machine by Bosch is BubbleBum’s favourite! Available for £109 from John Lewis this coffee machine is quick and easy to use and makes great coffee.
BubbleBums favourite Fathers Day gift that will make any man smile is the family memory book. This is so special and can become something of a family project. All you need is a scrap book, family photos, glue… and of course a little love. Create a collage of the families favourite moments with Dad, the places you have visited together and things you love about Daddy. This gift will trump all others and your kids will feel so proud!
Happy Fathers Day to all Dads out there love from BubbleBum Travel Booster Seats!
