Father’s Day gift ideas: 40 presents to suit every budget

Looking for Father’s Day gift ideas for 2019? We’ve done all the hard work and found you 40 of the very best to choose from…

Whether you’re celebrating your dad, grandpa, step-dad, or father-in-law (or all of the above), Father’s Day is all about thanking the men who’ve raised you, loved you, and been there every time you needed sound advice, a shoulder to cry on – or a lift home. And if you have kids, chances are you’ll be buying on their behalf – or at least giving them a nudge in the right direction ahead of Father’s Day, too.

If you’re planning a big family get together over a Sunday roast, taking him for a pint at the pub, or raising a glass over FaceTime, a thoughtful present for the father-figures in your life will show them how much you care, and is the perfect thank-you for all their help and support over the past year.

Of course, buying the perfect present for a man is ten times harder than shopping for a female relative. But they deserve spoiling, too. So if you’re totally stumped for Father’s Day this year (it’s Sunday 16 June in case you’re wondering), we’ve got your back. No need to trawl the shops or panic buy on on your lunch break, we’ve combed the high-street, scoured the internet and edited the best gifts on offer down to 40 smart, surprising and swanky picks – guaranteed to make him smile.

There’s something for everyone: the barbecue fanatic, the dedicated cyclist, the style conscious, the gadget geek, even the man who just likes to relax with a nice glass of whisky. And we’ve included some fail-safe, please-everyone buys, too, for those really tricky individuals.

Now all you need is a card and some wrapping paper, and you’re set.
