Gifts for Dad: Exciting Alternatives to Boring Father’s Day Presents

Everyone knows that dads are hard to buy for. By the time Father’s Day rolls around (it’s this Sunday 16th June!), it’s usually a mad panic to run out and buy some socks, aftershave or whatever manly looking gift you can get your hands on.

We are here to change all that with a few exciting gift ideas that are all a little bit different to the standard Father’s Day fare…

Instead of a DVD, why not get movie loving Dads a tour of some famous film scenes?

A DVD is a fail safe present for any film loving dad and although it’s a great present, a tour of London’s famous movie locations lets him get even closer to the action. As well as seeing the sights and monuments from loads of excellent movies, he can also have a brilliant day out in our beautiful capital city.

Instead of getting Dad yet another tie, why not get him a wet shave for a little bit of pampering?

We’re pretty confident that most dads have a surplus of ties in all imaginable patterns, not to mention a mountain of novelty socks. So why not surprise your dad with a little bit of masculine pampering with a wet shave? He’ll feel like a brand new man.

Instead of your standard box or bar of chocolate, let you Dad get creative with a chocolate making experience

If your dad has a sweet tooth, instead of getting him a bog standard bar of chocolate, let him release his creative juices with a chocolate making experience. However, we can’t guarantee he’ll share the spoils!

Instead of giving your Dad a DIY present, let him kick back and relax with a beer tasting.

DIY related presents are one of the most popular gifts for dads according to our Father’s Day infographic and while we’re sure they love getting a new toy for their tool box, we have a sneaking suspicion that he might appreciate a break and a beer tasting even more.

What are you getting dad this year?
