Our pick of the best Father's Day gifts for 2023
1. Targus Convertible Backpack
This backpack with a section for a laptop could come in very handy for dads who are often on the go to and from the office. This attractive backpack switches to a briefcase-style bag too, with a retractable handle and detachable shoulder straps. Plus, this is one of the best backpack brands for men and women.
2. Personalised Print
The perfect place to store happy family memories of trips abroad or memorable UK staycations. An adventure-loving dad will be made up with this thoughtful and unique Father's Day gift idea—and it's the perfect excuse to make more happy memories together. This also makes a great thank you gift for people you've shared special trips or experiences with.
3. Caleno Dark and Spicy Non-Alcoholic Rum
If your dad is trying to cut back on the booze or has recently read quit lit books, why not treat him to an alternative that will make some fun and tasty non-alcoholic cocktails and long drinks. Harnessing complex tropical, dark, and spicy flavors, this drink pairs perfectly with ginger beer and ice for a refreshing aperitif.
4. Father's Day Gift Box
We love this stylish hamper from Selfridges, packed with treats that your dad will love, including a delicious bottle of red wine, Toast ale, and some very upmarket bar snacks to team with them. At £70, it's perhaps a little more expensive than other Father's Day gifts, but it's a great option if you're clubbing together with siblings, or want to treat him to something extra special.
5. Jones & Modha Natural Unisex Fragrance
This unisex fragrance is perfect for eco-conscious dads who are taking a more sustainable approach. Not only is this natural perfume, which is made locally in the South West of England, kinder to the environment, but it also smells super fresh—like "sunshine in a bottle" according to online reviews. One of the best perfumes from a sustainability point of view; and if you're looking for sustainable fashion brands to shop too, our guide should help.
6. Handmade Drinks Dispenser
This handmade copper, oak, and brass drinks dispenser is a real statement piece that will look fantastic on display and is perfect for dads who love to host a garden party. You can also have this gift personalized, for an extra special touch.
11. Personalised Leather Holdall
For the dad who loves a getaway, whether it's to the best spa breaks or an escape to the countryside, this huge holdall is perfect for storing all his bits and pieces. Plus, there's the option to personalize this thoughtful gift.
12. Fitbit Charge 4
If your loved one wants to boost their fitness levels, one of the best Fitbits is a great way to track progress and improve workout motivation. The Fitbit Charge 4 is water-resistant and has a seven-day battery charge. Like other Fitbits, it can help your father figure to monitor their physical activity, optimize sleep, and track the quality of the sleep they're getting for better sleep all around.
13. Personalised Gardening Bag
One of the best gifts for gardeners, this customisable bag has designated pockets for every gardening necessity and tool. Whether your dad's a green-fingered pro or is just getting started, he'll appreciate this sweet and practical gift.
15. Cucielo Vermouth di Torino Rosso
Vermouth is firmly back in vogue thanks to the popularity of the Negroni and dads will love making their own at home. After all, it's one of the UK's most popular cocktails and along with gin and Campari, a good quality sweet Vermouth is an essential component. We love the stylish packaging, too.
17. Aston Martin Thrill Experience
Most dads want to spend more time with their kids as a Father's Day present, so why not treat him to a memorable experience you can enjoy together? If your dad is a big fan of vintage cars, treat him to an unforgettable day out with an Aston Martin Thrill experience from Virgin Experience Days. The experience includes a welcome introduction and briefing on safety and circuit driving techniques, then a driving session in one of the vintage Aston Martin cars.
20. eufy RoboVac
If he's a fan of nifty gadgets that make his life easier (or more fun), this robot vacuum cleaner is perfect. It can connect to Google Assistant or Alexa, and it automatically works out which areas of the floor need more suction power. The easy-to-use machine can hoover hard floors as well as carpets.
21. Hunter Original Boots
If he's partial to an adventurous, outdoorsy trip and is always looking for the best walking holidays in the UK to venture on, a solid pair of wellies are a sound investment. Hunter is known for its unbeatable quality, and this khaki pair is stylish enough to be worn both for dog walks and festivals.
22. Sage the Duo Temp Espresso Coffee Machine
Whether his old, much-loved coffee machine is on its way out or he's a recent convert to caffeine, this stainless steel option is one of the best gifts for coffee lovers who are picky about their morning brew. While it's perfect for making an espresso, there's also an attached milk frother for satisfying cappucinos and lattes.
23. ProCook Japanese Knife Set
When we asked the dads we knew what they would like for Father's Day, a really good set of knives was one idea that came up again and again. Foodies and cooking lovers will know the frustration of trying to create delicious dishes with blunt knives, so treat him to this professional set, plus wooden knife block, which he can enjoy for years to come.
24. Ottolenghi Flavour
One of the best cookbooks for those who want to create simple, healthy and hearty meals. Not just full of easy-to-follow recipes, Flavour also delves into the process and potential of cooking and preparing seasonal vegetables, as well as teaching you how to make dishes such as spicy mushroom lasagne and aubergine dumplings.
26. Kintsugi Repair Kit
If he's a clumsy dad who's been putting off repairing that broken dish or he's interested in the ancient art of kintsugi, this beginner set includes everything he needs to get started. By mixing glue with gold powder and applying it to the cracks in broken mugs, bowls or other dishes, a beautiful new piece can be made which will be truly unique.
27. Loops Engage Plus
Originally designed to assist people with anxiety and those who are sensitive to certain sounds, Loops can also be worn at night as one of the best sleep aids to help you drift off. This pair comes with an accessory called Loop Mute, which provides an extra level of noise reduction, and they're also available in four different colors.
29. Audible Subscription
It can be hard to find the time to read; especially for busy parents who might not have as much time as they'd like to relax with a good read. Audiobooks are the perfect solution, as they can be listened to in the car, whilst doing chores, or at the gym. A 12-month subscription will get dad one credit per month to spend on the newest and best audiobooks.
30. Our Place Home Cook Duo
You'd be hard-pressed to find someone who has missed the craze for the Always Pan recently, but the all-rounder pan is so popular for good reason. The Always Pan can be used to saute, steam, fry, bake and more, and with this set they can also enjoy the Perfect Pot, which is ideal for boiling, steaming and roasting.
Both pans also come with spatulas, and while it's not the most inexpensive gift, it's the perfect present to share the cost of with siblings and get Dad kitted out with a durable cooking set.
31. The Wesley Leather Billfold Popper Wallet
Made from good-quality leather and lined with a soft black fabric, this wallet has space for notes, receipts and several cards, with a poppered coin section to keep change safe. The wallet comes presented in a chic box, so it makes a great gift for the dad who's current wallet could do with a refresh.
32. Loch Grooming Set
This distinctive scent from The White Company features notes of black pepper, amber and sandalwood, making for a musky, rich and woody fragrance. With this gift set, they'll enjoy 500ml of the eau de toilette, as well as larger bottles of shampoo and conditioner infused with the scent. Presented in a wooden gift box, this would make a great gift for a father-in-law, too.
33. Personalised Wooden Accessory Stand
For the dad who's bedside table often looks a little cluttered, this personalised wooden stand will hold all his important accessories and make the space a bit less chaotic. With space to hold a phone (with holes underneath to thread charger leads through), glasses, earphones, a wallet or small notebook, keys and more, the organiser is one of the best gifts that keep on giving. There's also a printed photo of your choice on the front of the stand, making it a unique present, too.
34. Electric Coffee Mug Warmer
We all know someone who's guilty of making themselves a hot drink and sitting down to work, only to realise an hour later that their long-forgotten drink is now stone cold. If that person is your dad, gift him this handy mug warmer, which will keep drinks warm for up to eight hours.
38. Theragun Massager
The Theragun is ideal for those who frequently work out and want to relieve sore muscles, or dads who find themselves struggling with aches and pains. There's a customisable range of speeds, four different attachments for different body parts, 120 minutes of battery life and almost zero sound, so the massager can be used anywhere.
