Friday Feature: 5 Great Father’s Day Gifts

I realise it’s a bit late as Father’s Day is this Sunday (UK), but if you’re anything like me and always leave everything to the last minute, then these gift ideas might come in handy.

Dad’s are SO hard to buy for.

1. Voyager Classics

The HarperCollins Voyager imprint has some of the best Science Fiction and Fantasy books available, and selected titles are now also available in these beautiful clothbound covers. I think my dad would love these!

My favourites are Fahrenheit 451, The Once and Future King (which I can’t believe I haven’t read yet myself) and I, Robot.

You can see the full Voyager collection HERE and see below for 10% off offer.

Prices range from £8 – £15

2. 24K Gold Plated Playing Cards in Presentation Box

I guess this is quite a kitsch gift, but I think some dads would love them. And good value at only £9.98. From Play.com.

3. The Gift of Food

If you’d prefer to do something more personal for your dad this father’s day, making a delicious father’s day feast is always a winner in my eyes. Here are two dishes that I’ve tried and tested and have gone down a treat. Click the images for more info.

Rhubarb Ripple & Gingerbread Cheesecake

I actually made the cheesecake last year as a contribution to our family Father’s Day BBQ. My mum isn’t a fan of ginger, but it was quite subtle and really light. It was a hit.

4. Cobb BBQ Cooking System

Cobb looks set to change outdoor cooking forever. Let us introduce you to the ultimate barbecue system – which also roasts, smokes and cooks.”

£99.99 from Lakeland

5. For the Sci-Fi fans

I did a promo post for this book yesterday, and I really do think it would make a brilliant gift for any old-school Sci-fi-loving dads.

  1. I got my dad the voyager classic of TH White and it is beautiful. I personally sob over that copy of farenheit 451…and droool, a lot *.*

    I’m getting dad a Homer Simpson onesie from asda ;3

    • I want the TH White for myself SO MUCH! haha Homer onsie…I just had quite a disturbing image of my dad wearing a onesie then.

      This year my dad is just getting the gift of my company for the weekend as I’m broke and the train fare alone cost me £50! lol

      • train fares are absolutely horrific in this country!! I know that pain all too well.

        haha the homer onesie is only £15, hence why he is getting it 😄 I always forget about father’s day
