The very best Christmas present ideas for dads

Now you're buying gifts from you and your baby, it's time to up your game on the Christmas gifts and upgrade the man in your life from the pair of socks you normally buy, to something a little more personal. 

Shopping for dads isn't always easy, so playing it safe with the usual cliche gifts is always a better option. But why not make his year with a gift that he'll really love?

We've found the best gifts for him this Christmas, from personal dad gifts he can show off in the office, to the more practical. And don't worry, we still threw in a pair of novelty socks that'll make him smile!


This lovely wooden frame will make the perfect gift! Pop in his favourite picture and watch him smile as he opens this thoughtful gift on Christmas. Dad can choose whether to keep it on his night stand or show it off on his office desk. 

Made from sterling silver, these personalised cufflinks are very sentimental. These special cufflinks are engraved with your little ones hand and footprints, either send some prints you already have or request a special impression kit that's mess free. You can even have a special message engraved on to them too. 

The original couch potato for the dad who loves nothing more than putting his feet up at the end of a hard day. S'Puddy will quickly become man's best friend as he holds all the essentials for a relaxing evening, such as the TV remote, a drink and snacks.

This personalised wallet is the perfect gift and a wonderful keepsake. Just choose a drawing by your little one and it'll fill the blank space on the wallet! The faux leather wallet features seven card slots and compartments for change, notes and photo ID.

Dad will love this gadget helping out around the house! Ask Alexa to tell you facts or to play his favourite music. He'll soon be using it to order in gadgets as well, such as colour changing lightbulbs and electronics that help boil the kettle! It's a genius little gift that will provide hours of fun for dad and the whole family.

A perfect gift for a homebrew fan, or even for someone that just loves beer! This kit contains all the tools to help brew the perfect beer at home and makes up to 7 pints! It's a great little hobby to get into, and if he starts at Christmas they might be ready to drink just in time for the New Year.

Why not treat him to this shower gel and aftershave gift set? Featuring fresh citrus and deep forest wood scents, it's a great set that really shows how much you value him. 

Your little ones (and even yourself), might not be a fan of his cheesy music, but he'll love listening to his favourite tunes on this deluxe turntable! With two built-in speakers, it can play 7, 10 or 12 inch records. 

The typical present but with a bit more fun! You can never go wrong with a pair of socks for Christmas, but these novelty "bring me a beer" socks are perfect for when dad puts his feet up at the end of the day.
