With Father’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d pull together a guide of 10 different pressies perfect for all those dads out there. From your first time dad (this year is Tim’s first as a dad so I’ve had to look at getting something from Rory) to your beer loving and garden loving dads. I’ve focused on independent stores as I’m making an effort to shop small where I can and it’s feasible/ practical.

For the foodie and non-drinker:
Cornwall Hamper Store. 4 traditional pasties and a cream tea including 4 scones. Yum! This is right up my dad’s street! I can vouch that these pasties are sooo good and have some in our freezer. £29.99
For the first time dad:
Clouds and Currents. Daddy and Me Sleepless Society T Shirt Set. I’ve gotten this for Tim. Our little boy isn’t a fan of sleeping in his crib at night so I had to get this when I saw it! (About a 4 day turnaround) £32
For the bbq loving dad:
Borough Box. No. 1 Dad Beer, BBQ & Snack Gift Box. 4 independent beer cans, chipotle ketchup, beer, bacon and chilli jam, Smokey bbq seasoning, bacon crisps and chorizo thins. Wow! How delish does it sound?! £29.99
For the first time grandparent:
Papier. The Fathers Day Mini Photobook. Nice and easy to create from your phone, just upload 30 photos and you’re ready to go! Would make a perfect keepsake for a first time grandpa especially in these days where he might not have seen his little one as often as he would have liked. (4 day turnaround) £20 (currently £18!)
For the brownie lover:
Clapham Cakes. Brownie slab with a choice of various toppings. I mean how amazing do these look?! I can verify that these brownies are so good and moorish! Mital, the baker, does so many topping choices but my fav has to be Cadbury caramel whereas Tim’s is lotus biscoff. £19
For the sweetie lover:
Pick & Mix London. Movie Night Bundle. Sweets are always a go to for my dad who isn’t a drinker and has such a sweet tooth. He’s lucky I’m not at home otherwise they’d disappear even quicker! Chose from ready made selections or build your own. £14
For the beer lover:
Tiny Rebel. Lil’ Core Box. 12 cans of beer from award winning brewers based in Newport, South Wales. Not your average beers this pack has 11 different cans from Clwb Tropica to Pump up the Jam. £24
For the dad who has it all:
Project D Doughnuts. These are to die for and massive. You well and truly get your monies worth. You get 6 and my favourite this month looks to be the We Be Jammin – YUM! £20
For the garden lover:
Not on the Highstreet. Handmade Single Tier Bee Hotel. Perfect addition to your dad’s garden and a new little home for bees – we’ve got to keep an eye out for these buzzy bees! We have one of these in no. 2 green and looks great on our fence. £25
For the classic car lover:
Biscuiteers. Classic car show luxe biscuit tin. 16 hand iced biscuits in a gingerbread flavour shaped in different classic cars from Aston Martin to Rolls Royce. Something kids can tuck into as well on Father’s Day! £45
So there you have it! There is a slight focus on edible treats but who doesn’t love their food!
I’ve quite enjoyed pulling that together so might need to do another in the future! Let me know what you think!
What have you gotten your dad or partner for Fathers Day? Any other great finds?
