As the years go on, you’ll probably find it harder and harder to find gifts for Dad. Really, buying shouldn’t be that hard as Dads aren’t particularly fussed about what they receive. A lot of Dads would be happy celebrating an occasion with a keg of beer in front of the TV or a 5000 piece jigsaw to keep them out of trouble for a few hours. However, if you’d still like some inspiration, here’s our gift guide for Dads.
Over the years, some men may notice that their Dad is spending less time on grooming himself. He’ll be probably more interested in doing something in the garage, pottering around the house or spending some time in front of his favourite TV programmes. A grooming gift can act as a subtle hint that Dad is letting himself go a bit and should still invest time on grooming himself up. Tip: unless he’s already using face care products such as anti-ageing creams and moisturisers, stay away from them….they’ll likely just end up sitting on the shelf, never to be used.
As Dad gets older he may pay less visits to the barber to get what hair he has left trimmed. If Dad’s got a style that’s easy to maintain (think one length all over or patches that can be kept short), he’ll love the Remington Self-Haircut device. A great gift for Dad – no more excuses for a microphone head!
Panasonic Ear & Nose Trimmer with Vacuum
The older men get, the less hair we have on top and the more hair we have growing out of places where we don’t particularly need or want it. Think ears and nose. You may have noticed this on your Dad already but didn’t feel it appropriate to bring up. Send him a subtle hint with this Panasonic ear and nose trimmer (with vacuum). A great gift for Dad who could benefit from a tidy up here and there.
Bleu De Chanel Fragrance
Cologne is an easy solution and a great gift for Dad for any occasion. Maybe your Dad’s aftershave is a little out of date. He might still be holding on to a bottle of Brut from years ago (in French, ‘Brut’ means ‘gross’, by the way…say no more). Bring your Dad up to date with a bottle of Chanel men’s cologne. Bleu de Chanel has a contemporary and elegant scent, perfect for the older gentleman.
All men enjoy spending time on the sofa in front of the TV. If your Dad’s one of those that takes too much on, is always up to mischief somewhere and regularly on his feet, an entertainment gift may encourage him to take the load off and enjoy some chill time. Entertainment gifts make great fathers day gifts to.
Game of Thrones: The Complete Seasons 1-7
If your Dad is into his fantasy (think Lord of the Rings) he will love Games of Thrones. It’s one of the best series for television. You should warn Dad that most people find it addictive viewing. Medieval fantasy at it’s best.
Planet Earth II in 4K
If your Dad is in to his documentaries or nature programmes, he’s going to love Planet Earth 2 (especially if he has a 4K TV as the picture quality with this will be outstanding). Narrated by David Attenborough, it’s an absolute joy to watch over lazy weekends. A great gift for Dad.
Health Presents for Dad
At Man’s Black Book, we’re a big believer in gifts to enhance health. Health gifts are often overlooked. Dad can have all the presents in the world but he’s only got one health and taking care of this should be a priority. We want our love ones to be around for as long as possible so why not surprise Dad with the gift of health next time there’s an occasion?
Kingttu G6 Mountain Bike
Get Dad out and about on this Kingttu G6 Mountain Bike. Biking is a great form of exercise for anyone so, if your Dad is a bit of a couch potato and could do with shifting a few LB’s, this will be the perfect health gift for him. Lots of people wouldn’t choose to buy a bike themselves…however, if they’re given one, they may be encouraged to use it. Granted, Dad may be surprised to see you walking through the door with this. However, it wont be long until he’s popping to the shops on it or taking it on his favourite walking route. He’ll be getting his daily exercise in no time.
Hobby gifts for Dad
If you’re thinking outside the box for a gift for your Dad, a hobby gift makes a perfect present. Not only will a hobby gift keep his mind stimulated, it will also keep him occupied if he’s struggling to find new ways to spend his time (for example, if he’s not long out of retirement).
Beer Brewing Starter Kit
If your Dad enjoys a beer every now and again, a home Brewery kit is the perfect gift for him. Not only will it keep him entertained for hours, it’ll give him a sense of achievement when he’s bottling his beer and showing it off to friends and family. Get him this Beer Brewing Starter Kit and he’ll soon be spending most of his time in the garage mastering his home brew.
Imelda is something that your dad probably wouldn’t go out and buy himself. But, believe it or not, once he has a go of metal detecting, it’ll likely develop into quite an addictive hobby. Metal detecting will allow your Dad to get out and about, enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise. Men can get restless if they’re not doing i.e they’d get more pleasure going up and down the beach with a metal detector than lying next to the wife sunbathing.
Cooking used to be for women only. However, more and more men are trying their hands in the kitchen with many now deeming cooking to be a hobby. If your Dad fancies himself as a bit of a Gordon Ramsay, then there’s nothing better than a cooking gift, whatever the occasion.
As men, when cooking, there’s a habit of using every single pan in the house to cook even a single, simple meal. This is where the MasterPan will come in handy. It’ll enable Dad to cook a range of different items all in one convenient pan, saving on mess and washing up time (so Mum will love it too).
WEBER Spirit BBQ
Man and fire have gone hand in hand for years. Men love it. We’re obsessed with it. It makes us feel manly, poking a camp fire with a stick or keeping a bonfire going through the night. So there’s no doubt your Dad will love the Weber Spirit BBQ. It’s the ultimate BBQ made from robust stainless steel, so it’s built to last. Not only will it give Dad his fire fix, it’ll encourage your Dad to out on some free food and beer.
