Our Dad is the one who’s always on-hand to help us out. Dad is always there to show his support and love, tell a few naff jokes, and give us a hand with some DIY.
Dads are brilliant, and can always be depended on to keep us smiling. Although he may tend to avoid big celebrations and lots of fuss (it’s normally Mum who gets the big balloons and the breakfast in bed), we think he definitely deserves something special this Father’s Day.
So, to show your hero just how much you appreciate him, we’ve dedicated this post to a top-notch Father’s Day Gift Guide.
Below, you’ll find everything from socks to ciders, all from brilliant UK independent businesses. It’s never been easier to secure yourself a thoughtful, personal and unique present for your Dad.
These treads are perfect for the Summer. Gumbies creates a range of British-made flip flops, which are designed to outlast all manner of adventures. They’re perfect for a Dad who loves outdoor pursuits (just don’t let him wear them with socks!).
Men are becoming increasingly interested in skincare – even our Dads are keen to try out new beauty products! The team at Gnarly Joe create a range of natural skincare, of a superb quality. These include everything from anti-aging moisturisers to hair masks.
“We grow ‘em, we pick ‘em, we press ‘em!” Pulp Cider uses their own farm-grown cider apples to create a stunning range of craft cider gift sets. This family-run business have curated these orchards for more than a century, and still use the traditional skills that their parents and grandparents passed down to them.
Because all Dads love socks. Bare Kind is a producer of dazzling bamboo socks. These bold, bright and colourful socks feature endangered animals in the design and, with every purchase of these socks, they support an animal conservation or rescue charity. These are the very definition of look good and do good.
If your Dad is into running, this specialist range of skincare makes a thoughtful and super useful gift. Runk creates a range of all natural skincare, which is specifically designed for runners. These include massage balms, CBD joint relief cream, and aloe vera body lotion.
The brewers at Crumbs make beers with a difference. These brews have been made with leftover bread from the brewery’s local bakery. This bread would have otherwise gone to waste, but it gives the beers a fantastic, rich flavour. Each bottle features a different type of loaf, which provides the beer with its own unique flavour profile.
This year, we’ve all had to rapidly transform our spare rooms, nooks and crannies into home offices. With LiGo, you can treat your Dad to an extra bit of technology. This is a great way to take home working up a notch. Plus, it’s a gift that your Dad will use every day!

This range of premium whiskeys are available at a range of different price points, and include options to suit every palette. One thing’s for sure, your Dad will be chuffed to bits.
