The best Father's Day presents to treat Dad with this year

Daddy and baby

With Father's Day just around the corner (June 21, 2020, put it in your calendar!) it can be difficult to know what to buy.

Shopping for men isn't always easy and you can't always rely on your partner or dad needing a new pair of socks again (even the cards can be tricky to buy).

Whether you’re helping your little ones choose a present for their dad, or want to find a gift for your own dad, take a look at some of our favourite Father’s Day buys... 

Get Dad a thoughtful, personalised superhero book that he will treasure forever for Father's Day. Personalised throughout with what Daddy loves - from his job, where he lives, favourite food and clothes, hobbies, what he's scared of, and what he is best at (reading bedtime stories?).

Baby carriers are a great way to get Dad involved, so buy one of these innovating MiniMeis shoulder carriers and go out for a long Father's Day hike or hill walk. M&B Digital Editor Maria has one for her little boy Parker, and raves about it: "Parker's really comfy when he's up on his daddy's shoulders, and this carrier gives him a new and exciting view of the world."

For the handy DIY dads this Father's Day, a personalised hammer is a must for their toolbox. Not only is it a practical gift, but it's also incredibly thoughtful with the personalisation option. 

Although it might be considered an 'unofficial' Father's Day, why not surprise the dad-to-be with this thoughtful picture frame with your baby scan photo in? They might be feeling a lot of nerves in the run up to the due date too, so what better way to remind them how much you and bump love them.

You know Daddy will love this. He'll be able to indulge in a bit of Star Wars geekery, pretend he's a kid again, and then maybe (maybe) let the children play with it too. 

If your little one loves dinosaurs, and Daddy loves a dad pun, then this gift is perfect. 

We know dads aren't always the most organised member of the family, so give them a helping hand with this gadget stand - he can safely tidy away his phone, watch, and other gubbins. Plus, you can personalise it with a special message from the little ones too. 

Now, THIS we love. And so will Dad. It's a magnetic wristband, so when he's tinkering with the car, or fiddling around with nuts and bolts doing DIY, being manly and fulfilling those stereotypes, he can safely attach his bits and bobs to this and not lose another screw again. This is terrible and also brilliant. 

We love a hamper gift, and so will Daddy when it's full of chocolate and fudge. Really indulgent, plus you can re-use the hamper for storing toys in after he's polished all the treats off.

No matter where you are in the world or what time it is, the stars are always there. This Night Sky Map is a wonderful idea for a unique gift; simple enter a special date and location, and the print will show the stars' positions at that time. Use your little one's birthday for guaranteed tears from Dad. 

Is Dad a real lover of coffee, but missing his daily Starbucks at the moment? Then turn him into a real barista at home with a fancy coffee machine. It might seem expensive but it's a real investment, and if you add up how much he'll save on takeaway drinks over time, it soon pays for itself. 

Echo Dot

£29.99 - RRP: £39.99

This gadget will be every dad's new favourite toy. Stay connected around your home, play favourite songs or ask Alexa questions such as "What's that actor's name in that movie?" and "Why are fire engines red?" 
 

Why not go for something really sentimental with a personalised keyring? You can have a special message engraved exactly as it was written, or even have handprints and footprints of your children engraved. 

It's hard not to buy a pair of socks as a little gift, so why not up your sock game with these? You can add any message to the right sock.

If you want to buy a practical gift this Father's Day, a men's grooming kit might be everything Dad needs. This waterproof trimmer comes with 12 attachments to give freedrom for different styles for their beard, hair or body hair.

A classic aftershave is a perfect gift for a well-groomed dad this Father's Day. We love this scent from Cartier which is woody, airy with delicious notes of honey. He'll love it! 
 

Treat Dad to a special bottle of spiced rum with a personalised label, and if he happens to have the nickname of Papa Bear, then even better. We love the design of this bottle, but if it's a bit on the pricey side, then you could always design and print your own label and stick it on to a bottle of Tesco's own
