Father's Day Gift Guide 2019

by - 11 June

 It's almost Father's Day time again, the time when you need to work out what in the world your dad wants. I'm lucky/unlucky depending on how you look at it, that my dad's Birthday is the week before Father's Day as that makes it easier for me to choose gifts for both, as everything in the shops is 'Father related'. Hopefully, this gift guide will serve you well and you find something that will be suitable. If not you can check out my Amazon Father's Day Gift Guide I did last year.

*Items marked with a * were gifted to me for the purpose of this post. All opinions are, of course, my own.


First things first: the cards! I like to find fun, original cards to give when I'm buying for anyone. I use Moonpig quite a bit but failing that I try to use various places, as I get tired of the same old in supermarkets like Tesco etc as they have the same selection every year.
   First up, we have these Ladybird Books for Grown-ups from Danilo. The inside covers have some funny little extracts from the books and they are quite old school relatable subjects which may bring back great memories.
 Next up, if your Father or Grandad have ever been in to Only Fools And Horses then these will be the perfect cards for them. One of them comes with a coaster on the front. It's like a little extra gift! They do many more licensed cards so it's definitely worth checking out.

If you are looking for original, hilarious 'inappropriate' cards from a Yorkshire, small, family brand then Love Layla Designs is the one for you. They have a huge range of cards that are funny, rude, daring, and inclusive cards to choose from. My favourite is definitely the "Put wood in't hole" one which is what my dad will be receiving this year. 


If your Father is a beardy man then BRISK Grooming Skincare is a great idea for him! With various types of products ranging from Moisturiser to Beard Balm, there will be a product for him. BRISK is available to buy from Morrisons, Boots & Waitrose. 

Another type of skincare you could go for is the Black Leopard. They are an Australian brand that has recently launched in the UK and I have actually mentioned them before in my Valentine's Day Gift Guide this year. If you want to know more about them then definitely check it out.

Food & Drink

Alcohol is always a good shout when it comes to a gift, but if your dad happens to be cutting down on drinking, or just wants to try something a bit different then why not get him some Alcohol-free IPA from Brutal Brewing?  It has 0% alcohol but still happens to have a great classic beer taste.

 Want something that is fun and completely different? These super cool biscuit tins from Biscuiteers may be the right gift for you. They have some awesome options from the BBQ Dad to the Garden Lover Dad and even the Car Lover Dad. And if you don't want a full tin, there are separate options available.

 Personalised Gifts

 I've been loving personalised gifts recently. I love including them on these gift guides, as well as buying them for family & friends and matching the gifts to their personality. My dad, for example, is a beer drinker so this beer tankard will be perfect for him. I kept it pretty simple and put Happy Father's Day DAD, Enjoy Your Beer! Lots of Love, Lucy & Sam. This was from thepersonalisedgiftshop.co.uk and comes with a gorgeous display box. Their options for personalising your gifts are very easy to follow and they have a huge range available.

 Not only is my dad a beer drinker, but he is also a big coffee drinker so a mug is always a good idea. This mug is another personalised gift from The Personalised Gift Shop and is a photo mug. You can choose 2 photos, one for the front and one for the back. I chose a photo of me and my Dad and one of my Brother and my Dad. You can also personalise the text on each one. I just chose a simple Dad for each side.

How cool is this wrapping paper from Pretty Gifted? You can totally personalise this how you want. You can choose a paper colour, font, text foil colour, any message up to 60 characters plus you can choose the font size and an icon to have between each line. I went for the classic Happy Father's Day text and played with some various other options.  It shows a preview of your chosen things so that you can easily see what it looks like and if you are stuck for cool pairings you can check out the inspiration page. Each order also comes with free delivery, luxury gift tags & a gel pen.

 This bottle from Root7 is the perfect thing to carry around with you throughout the day. Whether you want to up your water intake or take your coffee on the go, this bottle has got you. Keeps drinks cold for 30 hours and hot for 20. Plus it's in this really awesome polished steel colour variety (they do have more options if you are looking for something more colourful).

Last but certainly not least is the official England cricket book. This is a must-have for any England Cricket fan out there. With player profiles, world cup history, team analysis, and more it's the perfect way to get up-to-date on all things England Cricket related before the Cricket World Cup which is hosted in England this year.

 Custom Bobbleheads

Also considered as personalized gifts, only that they are considered of higher tier due to the level of customization, cost, and the idea behind it. Getting a custom bobblehead means you are asking a manufacturer to create a mini statue that looks like your dad. And if you think that it's impossible without a stratospheric price tag — well, times have changed. You can now ask the best custom bobblehead company to model a toy based on your dad's figures (face), and add the head to a body which is also customizable. You can have your dad's face on a superhero body or a soldier or an angel, the list goes on... All for an affordable price.
