I bet you’re glad I’m here to remind you that Father’s Day is coming up. The sentimental day dedicated to our dads lands this year on Sunday, 18 June, so kids need to be prepared.
I’m the type of person to always plan ahead. I’ve even got a present fund after I’ve been caught out too many times when I found myself broke during my friend’s birthdays and other special occasions.
I’ve learnt the error of my ways though, and I’ve been busy researching great gift ideas for every type of dad – from the sentimental type to the silly dad.
Last year, the average budget for the day came in at £24 – a £4 increase from the year before. With prices rising for pretty much everything, it might be even higher for 2023 but I’ve tried to keep the price tags as low as I can.
It never hurts to be ahead, right? So you can use these prezzies as inspo.
Here, we’ve got all sorts of unique father’s day gifts, from shaving kits to handy gadgets. Whether he’s a new dad or a well seasoned pops, these are the best father’s day gifts in 2023 from retailers including John Lewis, Rains, H&M and more.
