Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Kind of Dad

From homebodies to design lovers, these presents are sure to impress.

Dads (and father-like figures) should always be made to feel special, but the benefit of Father’s Day is having a dedicated day to celebrate them and everything they do.

Whatever your plans to mark the day (a home-cooked lunch? A morning outing followed by coffee?) a thoughtful gift always goes down well. But why not pass on the gardening shears and socks this year, and consider what would really make his day? Whether he enjoys cooking or cosy nights in watching films, we’ve rounded up a thoughtful selection of present ideas that are certain to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Gifts for the foodie

A dad who likes to get busy in the kitchen is so easy to buy for. An obvious choice is a cookbook, but why not deviate from the classic recipe format by honing in on a specific ingredient? This ode to the humble tomato, for example, will be his idea of the ultimate bedtime read – and provide dinner inspiration in the process.

Gastronomic gadgets are also an easy win; a petite chopping board he can call his own is perfect for mincing garlic (or exclusively for slicing lemon for his G&Ts).

He’ll also appreciate the chance to elevate the fruits of his labour with a considered table setting. This is where linen napkins, harmonising tablecloths and desirable serveware comes in, and you’ll get to enjoy them too!

Gifts for the homebody

Whether your dad is working flat-out, or busy helping everybody else, treat him to something that will encourage some precious down-time at home. That could be a tactile bath mat or robe – anything that’s a cue to indulge in a spot of self-care or a long, hot soak in the bath.

If the bed is his favourite piece of furniture, then he’ll relish receiving a set of breathable linen sheets (or build a bundle over time, starting with a pair of pillowcases or a throw). If he’s notoriously difficult to buy for, what about a candle? Everyone appreciates a pot of something gloriously scented by their desk or bed – he’ll be converted in no time.

Gifts for the aesthete

There’s a reliable inventory of failsafe buys for the man who appreciates good design. Books are always a winner, with all manner of niches explored in coffee table tomes, from the art deco movement to iconic homes and cars matched together. Easy to wrap, impactful and informative, we have a selection you can return to on repeat.

Handmade pieces, such as blown-glass vases or ceramics will also impress, especially if you impart a little knowledge about the maker and their craft. And don’t forget art: yes, this area is entirely subjective, but a print costs far less than a canvas (and saves you putting yourself in the frame).
