Fathers Day 2020 Gift Ideas

Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad. Dads are the ones you can always count on. Whether it's a scraped knee, a tough breakup, or just needing someone to talk to – Dads are always ready with a big hug, a cup of tea, and that special brand of Dad wisdom.

We want to celebrate every type of Dad there is. Here's to the new Dads, old Dads, daft Dads, sporty Dads, barbecue Dads, grumpy Dads, geeky Dads, and every other Dad in the world. Whether they're new to the world of the Dad, or they've got years of experience, Father's Day is the perfect time to spoil them. If you want to thank a special Dad, Grandad, Daddy to be, or the Dad figure in your life, we can help you find that perfect gift for Father's Day (it's on Sunday, June 21, FYI.

We know that this year, Father's Day may be a little different, especially if you can't get to see Dad in person – but we've still got loads of great ways you can say thank you to Dad. You can still make it a special Father's Day, no matter how you celebrate!

For the Dad who's a bit of a Foodie

Is your snacking going up during lockdown? Us too! Luckily, that also means we're experts on treats both sweet and savoury.

For the Dad who appreciates the classics, we have the giant I Love You Dad Cadbury Bar and the Grandad Cadbury Bar. And if he likes his chocolate a little fancier, then treat him to this special World's Best Dad Toblerone.

If Dad's tastes are a little more retro, we also have the delightful Dad Is My Hero Sweet Jar, which is filled to the brim with all the pick 'n' mix classics.

Does Dad like his snacks to be on the savoury side? Then we'd recommend the Beer and Snacks tray. This hamper is chock full of Father's Day savoury goodies, including gourmet nuts, crackling, salami, and beer.

For the Dad who enjoys a cheeky tipple

Dad-ing can be tiring work. We get it. After a long day of being an amazing Dad, there's nothing better than kicking back with an ice-cold beer, bottle of wine, or glass of whiskey. Whatever Dad's drink of choice, we've got the perfect tipple.

For the Dad who loves his craft beers, we recommend the Freedom Award-Winning British Lagers Gift Set. A carefully curated selection of masterfully brewed beers from the iconic independent Freedom Beer brewery.

If he loves beer – and is also a massive Peaky Blinders fan – then treat him to this tremendous Peaky Blinders Gift Set with Pint Glass. Inspired by the iconic BBC show, this pack includes two bottles of dark and delicious Peaky Blinders IPA and a Peaky Blinders pint glass. Perhaps Dad's more of a whiskey drinker? Then surprise him with the Famous Dad Personalised Whisky Bottle. It's a bottle of Famous Grouse whiskey with a fully customisable label that Dad will treasure. And if he prefers a glass of red wine when he wants to relax, then he'll enjoy the Yealands Wine Pinot Noir, a fantastically fruity New Zealand Pinot Noir.

For the Dad who's obsessed with games and gadgets

Life under COVID-19 lockdown has lead to many Dads bringing out their geekier side. With all that time at home, who can blame them for picking up a controller for a cheeky video game sesh with the kids or their fellow Dads? For the Dad who loves to play, we have games, gadgets, and geeky gifts.

If Dad's a fan of retro computer games, then he'll love this Retro Mini TV Games console. It's packed with 200 retro games, which means plenty of social distancing gaming time! You can also celebrate Dad's love of Fortnite with this Fortnite S3 - Tomatohead POP! Vinyl Figurine or a Fortnite S3 - Loot Llama POP! Vinyl Figurine. Or you can surprise him with a novelty Harry Potter power bank!

For the Dad who's a sports fanatic

Whether Dad loves to be out on the pitch for his five-a-side football games, or he's more of an armchair fan, we have the perfect present to keep him busy until he can get back in the stands (or on the golf course.

If he's a master of sports trivia and doesn't mind getting a sweat on, then he'll love the Question of Sport Board Game. Based on the classic BBC TV programme, players answer questions while doing physical challenges!

And for Dads who enjoy the sports trivia (without the added physical challenges), Dad will have loads of fun with the Football Star Top Trumps Quiz. The life of a Dad can be busy, so if you think he'd prefer to spend Father's Day taking it easy with a good book, Haynes Explains Football is a hilarious guide to the beautiful game. Or maybe Dad prefers the rugby field over the football field – then treat him to this Rugby book, complete with some Choc on Choc rugby-ball shaped treats!

For the Dad who loves Marvel movies and comic books

Does Dad daydream about being a superhero? Does he wish he could join the Avengers and hang out with Hulk? Then he'll love our selection of gloriously geeky gifts.

If Dad's got a shelf full of his favourite Marvel collectables, then he'll love one of these amazing Avengers Funko Pop toys – including an Iron Man POP! Vinyl Figurine, a Hulk POP! Vinyl Figurine, and a Thanos POP! Vinyl Figurine.

And if he prefers Guardians of the Galaxy, treat him to this Marvel Groot Mug. Or maybe Dad thought Thanos had a point, or maybe he just wants to wield the power of the universe with his morning cup of coffee – either way, you can surprise him with this Marvel Infinity Gauntlet Mug.

Shop the Range

Super-Hero Obsessed Dad

However you celebrate Dad on Father's Day – whether it's at home, with loved ones, or on a video call – it's wonderful that you're showing him know you care and how much he means to you, especially during times like these. Happy Father's Day, Dads!
