Sometimes it can be HARD to think of some great Father’s Day gift ideas – right?! We end up spending hours scrolling and searching for something unique and special. After all, it’s Father’s Day and we want to make sure we’re treating him to something thoughtful, a gift that’s as brilliant as he is. So, to make things a little bit easier, we’ve pulled together a list of 10 thoughtful Father’s Day gift ideas to delight every Dad from brilliant independent businesses we think you should know about!

1. A creative workshop

Spend some quality time together and book up a creative workshop to look forward to. Try your hand at making the perfect sourdough pizza together at E5 Bakehouse. Prefer to stay in? Get crafty and give pottery a go from the comfort of your own home with Sculpd who’ll send everything you’ll need in the post.

2. A new plant

For the Dad that has green fingers, why not treat him to an aloe vera or a Kentia palm to add to his collection? Beards & Daisies have a huge collection of indoor and outdoor plants to choose from, including an entire unkillable range – thank goodness for that!

3. Wall art

One of our favourite father’s day gift ideas is something that can be kept for years to come. For the brightest star in your sky, this sweet art print by Rock On Ruby is something he’ll hang up on the wall with pride and is a constant reminder he really is the best dad in the universe!

4. Book a local drinks experience

G&T please! If your Dad loves gin, he’ll love a trip to Haymans, a gin distillery based in South West London. Book up a Distillery Drinks Experience or a tour for you and your dad to enjoy together.

5. A personalised notebook

Because every Dad needs a new notebook! Make his day noteworthy with our brand-new Personalised Leather-Effect Embossed Notebook. Whether you’ll choose green, grey or navy, this notebook is embossed in the bottom-right hand corner with a name or set of initials, adding that personal touch.

6. A garden or park picnic

If the weather is looking promising, prepare a picnic with all of his favourite foods and snacks, all nestled in this personalised picnic basket that can be used for years to come.

7. A mystery book subscription

Perfect for every father figure who’s a bit of a book worm… a monthly book subscription from Daunt Books so every month he’s got a brand-new read. In need of a bookmark to accompany this gift? We’ve got just the thing with our brand-new Personalised Page Turner Hidden Messages Bookmark with a silk-like tassel. 

8. Chocolate toolbox

Does he love a bit of DIY? We’ve got just the thing! For the father figure who can fix pretty much everything (and has a sweet tooth) this chocolate toolkit makes the perfect Father’s Day gift. It looks so real, he won’t even know it’s chocolate!

9. BBQ tool set

The personalised bbq tool set makes the perfect father’s day gift idea for the king of the bbq, personalised with a name of your choice! The tools are made out of ash wood and stainless steel, making them long-lasting for plenty of summers to come!

10. Open air cinema

Take him to see one of his favourite films at The Luna Cinema with a variety of beautiful venues across the country. From Notting Hill at Westminster Abbey to Star Wars at Bleinheim Palace, it’ll be an experience like no other. Take your own chairs and blankets too!
