Fathers Day Gift Guide 2024

by Author: Jade Lloyd

#AD Gifted. We have been kindly gifted the products for our Father’s Day guide, all thoughts and opinions are our own.

Father’s Day 2024 is fast approaching (Sunday 16th June). 

Here’s to the marvellous father figures in our lives. Stepdads, adoptive dads, grandads, uncles, new dads!

Let’s face it, the older we get the more we appreciate being given socks. Do something creative, what about taking him breakfast in bed or simply cook a meal together, create a loving list of the things you have learned from him over the years and get the kids to make cards.  No matter your budget, give him a cuddle or a call if you live away, and if you are looking for some Father’s Day shopping inspiration check out our ideas below! If you want a peek at packaging, unboxing and extra images of the products check out our Insta stories or ping us a message. As requested by our shoppers we are keeping the flat lays simple this year to focus on the product you are buying and added snaps of what items look like out of box.

The FinaMill – Pepper Mill & Spice Grinder in One, RRP £49.95.

Looking for something a bit different this year? The best way to enhance any dish is freshly ground spices, and the easiest way to grind your favourite spices is a FinaMill, rather than the old mortar and pestle. A perfect addition to a foodie dad’s kitchen accessories, it means they can conveniently enjoy freshly ground instead of pre-ground spices and all the extra flavours this brings. Available in a range of colours FinaMill holds two, prestigious RED DOT AWARDS in Kitchen and Appliance Design as well as Most Innovative Product. What makes FinaMill different is its interchangeable and refillable spice pods. Each pod has adjustable grind settings for maximum control.

There are a range of accessories available to purchase with FinaMill, including stackable trays to store the pods and two different types of pods – the PRO Plus for oily spices (inc pink salt and toasted garlic) and Max for harder spices (inc lemon rind and coffee beans) both of which have ceramic grinding elements. You can also grind dried herbs. These pods are BPA-free, with large capacity and easy fill. I like how easy FinaMill is to use, put the main body down onto the pod and hear it pop in, press the button on top to grind, then press down on the kitchen surface to release the pod for a mess-free refill. By changing pods, you avoid cross-contamination of flavours. Grinding only takes seconds! The mill is lightweight, a good size but not too big it is awkward to store and easily cleanable. There are lots of lovely recipes and spice inspirations on the website as well as handy videos, so you get to know about and see the product in use before purchase. There are different types of FinaMill too – battery-powered (which we have pictured), rechargeable and stainless steel depending on what you are looking for. The packaging and branding is quality with clear instructions. A fab gift for dads who enjoy cooking.

Lola’s Cupcakes Father’s Day Cupcake Box, RRP £22.20.

Lola’s Cupcakes was created in 2006 by Victoria Jossel and Romy Lewis, where the pair opened concessions in Selfridges, Topshop and a flagship store in Mayfair. Today they have grown to over 30 locations including stores and collection lockers and deliver products nationwide. The website is packed with cakes and sweet treats with options for Vegan, Gluten-Free and lower Sugar cakes. In certain areas you can collect from stores/lockers and they offer a driver delivery service (use the handy website map to see where this is available) or order via post with Lola’s nationwide delivery service. Father’s Day gifting is easy with Lola’s Cupcakes ‘Super Dad’ Collection which includes cupcakes, brownies and full-sized chocolate or vanilla layered sponges from the UK’s favourite bakery.

We feature the delicious and Pop Art inspired colourful Super Dad cupcakes. A regular box (pictured) includes six generous cupcakes, and a miniature box contains 12. Each box is available with a mix of vanilla and chocolate sponges decorated with stars, speech bubbles, sprinkles and pearls. These superhero-styled cakes are such a delight to receive, the sponge still moist and the butter icing plentiful! The perfect blend and combination of flavours not to sweet or overpowering. (The red/yellow icings are vanilla). I was really impressed by the care that goes into the packaging- a logoed delivery box with a cold section to house another branded box filled with individually packaged cupcakes (all recyclable materials). Lola’s website clearly states allergens and nutritional information on each item. The collection will be available to pre-order from 29th May and will be in stores and ready for delivery from 12th June.

AA 50 Walks In series, RRP £13.99.

The AA needs no introduction, but what you may not know is that they have published a walking guide series of paperbacks. Walking is one of Britain’s favourite leisure activities and this 180-page guide features a variety of mapped walks to suit all abilities, from gentle strolls to longer hikes. Why not buy a book that covers your local area or favourite part of the country which you holiday in? You could even combine the walking guide with a couple of nights at a B&B for an extra special gift! There are 31 titles in this series – and to give you an idea we picked Herefordshire & Worcestershire which contains 50 walks of between 2–10 miles and features all the practical detail you need, accompanied by background reading on the history and wildlife of the area, photographs and clear coloured mapping (sourced from the Ordnance Survey) for ease use.

Every route has been colour-coded according to difficulty. One of my favourite things is that all walks are annotated with local points of interest and places to stop for refreshments. Every walk is given a summary of distance, time, gradient, level of difficulty, type of surface and access, landscape, parking and public toilets. I found the parking and toilet information very useful! Great for a day out to experience all the countryside has to offer. They have also included advice for dog owners about a route’s canine friendliness. Go to the walk’s locator map’ located on page 7 to see the locations of the walks within the county. The revamped editions include Devon, Gloucestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, North Yorkshire, and West Yorkshire as well as the featured Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The guides have a a shiny covering which means the odd raindrop can be wiped off quickly. The books measure 22cm by 11.8cm. I found the narrow width of the book useful as the guide fitted in a bag easily and would recommend these as perfect gifts for anyone interested in walking or hiking.

Tracklements Father’s Day Gift Box, RRP £22.

Based in the heart of Wiltshire and founded in the 1970’s, Tracklements lovingly make an award-winning range of over 60 artisan condiments, from the UK’s first Wholegrain Mustard to Fresh Chilli Jam.

  • Apple & Cider Brandy Chutney, 270g– made with Kentish Bramley apples and a liberal measure of Somerset cider brandy for a succulent, boozy kick. Indecently good with roast pork, mature cheeses and pies

Halilit Buki France Arcade Cabinet, RRP £29.99.

Customers looking for a wide range of educational toys and musical instruments know that they can rely on Halilit. They offer an extensive range of award-winning products for children from birth to 12 years. Why not buy the Buki France Arcade Cabinet for dad to build with the kids and as something once made, they can play with together? Build memories! I love that this has the construction and entertainment element of the retro games console.

Create your very own arcade with this retro DIY set! Using the screwdriver included players can assemble the controller, build the cabinet and then connect all the components: screen, speakers and power supply. I like that the main body is constructed of wood. Stickers are included to allow personalisation and the games unit comes with 12 classics (a really decent number) to enjoy such as puzzles, snake, breakout and shoot’em up! Suitable for ages eight and above (plus dad). Requires 2 x AA batteries, not supplied.

STM Goods ChargeTree Go, RRP £49.99.

A fab gift for tech lovers, the Qi Certified ChargeTree Go from STM Goods is a 3 in 1 charger that conveniently folds completely flat. A simple yet innovative design, the STM Goods ChargeTree Go can charge your wireless phone (iPhone/Samsung/Android), alongside AirPods / AirPods Pro and Apple Watch at the same time. A list of all the compatible models is available on the website. A useful feature is the compact, slim design means that you can slip it easily in your bag so Dad can take it on the go – to the office etc.

The product also acts as a charging platform when folded flat. The spring-loaded, retractable Apple Watch charger holds and charges at just the right angle to enable the Watch to go into nightstand mode. It tucks away nicely into the device when not needed. The clever design means the ChargeTree works with AirPods in a wireless charging case, and with most non-metal phone cases (slim silicone case, slim clear case and official MagSafe case will work seamlessly). Say goodbye to unnecessary chargers and a mass of wires with this neat device. I like how the box opens out with instructions and has a viewing panel for the device. Available from Amazon.co.uk in 2 colours. You can get free postage with Amazon Prime.

Multi-use stoneware Hokan Bowls, RRP from £24.00.

Hokan is a British design company that manufactures and sells unique products for the kitchen and home ,designed to save food, money and time. Their ethos is firmly based on sustainable and efficient living, tackling food waste and zero-plastic products. The multi-purpose Hokan Bowls are innovatively designed by Alistair Donald and retail in a variety of bold colours and three sizes. The stoneware is high-fired with a deep glaze that keeps food fresh, and safe from any pollutants as would be found in plastic containers. I am so impressed by the colour and shine of the finish. What’s more, they are designed to stack, one on top of the other, to fit neatly in the fridge preserving precious space. Saving time and money.

The volumes of each bowl are determined by their height, so the lids are one-size fits-all so no need to search for the correct one. One set has five uses – to prepare, cook, store, serve and save food. What I love is that you can freeze these bowls and then pop them in the oven once the food has defrosted. Less washing up and avoiding plastic Tupperware! The Hokan bowls are dishwasher safe.  Robust and durable for lifelong kitchen service prices start at £24 or buy a set of three for £80. We feature the 600ml bowl which is the Medium bowl – see product information on the website for measurements. Also, check out the sea green bowls! Hokan uses cardboard packaging that is recycled and limits the amount of colour and printed matter. For a sustainable, BPA-free household, Hokan offers a unique alternative to storage solutions with potential harmful pollutants. We are going to gift ours to dad with a Ramen making kit as it is the perfect size for this tasty meal!

African Orange Duo comes in a recycled bottle with a recycled plastic pump.

Leave to set for 8-12 hours and then refrigerate your Yogurt until chilled.

EasiYo yogurt sachets contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and there are live yogurt cultures in every serving. They also sell fruit toppings for a delicious breakfast combination!
