Father’s Day is approaching (Sunday 19th June in case you’ve forgotten) and I don’t know about you but I find it really hard to think of gifts – for both my own Dad and for my husband.
As usual I’ve been trawling the internet looking for ideas, so I thought since I’d done all the hard work I might as well share it on my blog to help you guys out! I’ve kept the costs down to realistic prices that should suit most budgets, and some that the kids could buy with their pocket money.
So here are my top Father’s Day Gift Ideas for all kinds of Dads…
The Geeky Dad
There’s definitely one of these kinds of Dads in my house! Computer games addicts and comic book fans will love these gift ideas…

What comic book fan wouldn’t want to see themselves starring as a Superhero on a movie poster?!
Most computer games loving Dads will probably have grown up on these retro games and will love playing them with their kids.
Dads who love Star Wars (isn’t that all Dads?!) will love having their cereal in this Darth Vader bowl before they head off to work!
Any Dad’s who hide away in the spare room/office/man cave playing games will appreciate this cool Tetris light to add a bit of extra geekiness to the room.
The Gadget Loving Dad
If you have a Dad in your life that loves his gadgets and boys toys then here are a few suggestions for you…
This is actually pretty cool. If you have a man who downloads movies to his phone, you can use this cardboard projector to watch them on a big screen.
£30, John Lewis
Gadget lovers will love having their own remote control quadcopter. The bonus is it won’t even take up any room in the house!
Virtual Reality is all the rage at the moment with some really expensive VR gadgets out there. This headset isn’t too pricey and you can use with a variety of different apps.
If the Dad in your life is always on his phone, and running out of battery, this might be the perfect gift for him. No more excuses for missing your call because his phone died!

If you have a fitness freak Dad this heart rate monitor is great as it syncs up with various apps on your phone to allow you to track your workouts.

If your Dad loves spending time in his shed doing DIY and fixing things, then he might like one of these gifts…
This is a thoughtful present for Dads who like DIY and have tools lying around all over the place!

A first Father’s Day is probably the most special of them all, here’s some ideas for new Dads…
Fingerprint charms are very popular and are a really sweet gift idea for new Dads to keep with them at all times.

This bookmark could maybe be a little “sorry” from your new baby for making Daddy so tired?!
If Daddy works a lot, these cufflinks are a nice little reminder of who’s waiting at home for them.
If you have a baby that doesn’t like to sleep this book is brilliant. A friend sent it to us when we were suffering with a colicky newborn and it really did bring us some laughs in a bit of a dark time!
What do you think of my gift suggestions? I hope they’ve given you some ideas for those awkward men folk in your life! Have a great day spoiling your Dads on Father’s Day.
