Super Gifts for Pops: Surprise Dad with the perfect present this Father’s Day
With Father’s Day on the way soon, it’s time to start that yearly head scratching routine: what to get for Dad? Now, we’re not here to tell you that every Dad isn’t unique - for many of us, they're our own personal superheroes - but still, when one becomes a Dad, a strange transformation takes place. It’s undeniable: all Dads have the best jokes, are experts when it comes to BBQs and can rock a mean socks and sandals combo.
So with that in mind, we’ve curated a list of some of our best Gifts for Dad that will go down a treat come Father’s Day - fun stuff that we think exemplifies the very essence of Dad-ness.
1) Pickmaster Precision Plectrum Maker
If your Dad fancies themselves something of a rock god, then whether you agree on their musical acumen or not, the Pickmaster Precision Plectrum Maker is the perfect gift.
This handy music gadget lets you punch your own plectrums out of old bank cards, loyalty cards, gift cards, or any other similar plastics. It’s not just a great way to recycle - the Pickmaster’s weighty construction means it’s a satisfying bit of kit to use as well - and we haven’t even got onto how this all translates into countless free plectrums, for life!
2) Golf Ball Finder Glasses
Fore! So you’ve just witnessed another golf ball get sliced off into the rough? Then off you go, tramping around in the long grass, swinging your club at ankle height in the hopes of finding what you’ve lost.
The Golf Ball Finder Glasses do away with all that tedious searching about. Thanks to the specially designed blue lenses, any white golf balls will appear to light up, clear as day, against the green grass. A handy gift for anyone who’s maybe not quite PGA Tour ready yet.
3) Psycho Juice Hot Sauce Gift Set
Normally we’d say something here like “Can you handle the heat?” or maybe “It’s too hot to handle!” but when it comes to the famous Psycho Juice range from Dr Burnorium's Hot Sauce Emporium, we think the good Doctor’s got us covered in terms of descriptors.
Not for hot sauces novices, the Psycho Juice 70% Collection Gift Box includes one bottle of Psycho Juice 70% Habanero (Heat Level 8), one Psycho Juice 70% Red Savina (Heat Level 9) and one Psycho Juice 70% Ghost Pepper sauce (Heat Level 10+).
4) Star Wars Stormtrooper Men's Bathrobe
If your Dad’s a big fan of that famous galaxy far, far away, then the Star Wars Stormtrooper Embossed Fleece Bathrobe is the classiest choice when it comes to lounging around in comfort and style, while still maintaining maximum levels of Star Wars nerdery.
This piece of officially licensed apparel features an embroidered Empire logo on the left breast and a giant satin Stormtrooper helmet design on the back, with back trim and a black belt.
5) Scratch Off Bucket List Poster - 100 Fish To Catch
Is your Dad an avid angler who can’t resist the siren song of a good day’s fishing? Then the Scratch Off Bucket List Poster - 100 Fish To Catch is the piece of wall art they didn’t know they needed.
With 100 different squares to scratch off, as your Dad catches more fish, they’ll be able to uncover more bright and bold illustrations, creating a unique patchwork display of colour.
6) Batman "Welcome To The Batcave" Doormat
They say a man’s house is his castle, but we think many a Dad out there would prefer a hi-tech secret lair over a crumbling medieval structure.
So while we can’t furnish your home with a supercomputer or underground hanger, we can at least help Dad’s everywhere aspire to such things with the official Batman "Welcome To The Batcave" Doormat.
7) Game Of Thrones Luxury Decanter and Glasses Set
Fit for a king, the Game Of Thrones Luxury Decanter and Glasses Set is the perfect gift for any Dad who enjoys the finer things in life. Featuring the Stark, Baratheon, Lannister, and Targaryen sigils, this eye-catching set of drinkware also looks suitably regal when just on display as well.
Just make sure you're clear this is a Father’s Day gift with good intentions - given some of the themes that are prevalent in GoT, you don’t want your Dad thinking you’re trying to overthrow him and claim the best spot in the living room for yourself.
8) Star Wars Original Stormtrooper Terrarium
The Original Stormtrooper Terrarium is based off of the first Stormtrooper helmet moulds, made by Shepperton Design Studios for 1977’s Star Wars, so it’s not just a stylish piece of homeware, but a homage to pop-culture history too.
The ideal home for succulents and cacti, this terrarium would look equally at home next to a Blu-ray or video game collection as it would amongst other potted plants.
9) On The Rock Glass and Ice Ball Mould
Neither shaken nor stirred, but gently swirled and evenly cooled. The On the Rock Glass & Ice Ball Mould is the perfect glass for anyone who likes their tipple of choice chilled.
With a rock shaped hump at the bottom of the glass, natural liquid motion is increased, and by using a single solid ice cube thanks to the mould provided, your drink will be cooled to perfection.
10) Dad: A Ladybird Personalised Book
This Ladybird ‘How it Works’ book delves into the inner workings of the Dad. With it’s deliberate use of simple language, and a host of vintage Ladybird imagery, this hilarious gift feels just like one of the classic children’s books that it was inspired by.
Don’t be fooled though, as each page is packed with the dry wit and humour these re-imagined Ladybird books have become famous for. With this version, you can even personalise your copy. Add Dad’s name (which will appear on the cover) and add a message (that will appear on the title page).
Did any of these dad-themed gifts feel like a sure-fire Father’s Day winner? If not, then maybe something else from our eclectic gift range will do the job.
