You’ll be forgiven for thinking “What do I buy Dad for Father’s Day this year?” because we recognise the feeling. We know they’re difficult to buy gifts for. So we’ve done some homework for you and found some British brands that have thoughtful gifts that we think you (and he) will love…
Whisky Dad: His favourite tipple on tap!
You can send an ‘expertly curated’ bottle of whisky to Dad’s door every other month to ensure his decanter is always replenished.
The Summerton Whisky Club which launched in 2018, is perfect if you want to give Dad that element of surprise more than once.
We love the fact that they are super-specific about the brands they select… these are not the type of bottles that you can find in the supermarket you know! £50 every other month

Motorbike Dad: Headwear by Norton
Father’s Day budgets don’t usually stretch to a motorbike, however the next best thing is to kit out Dad in new headgear, whilst on (and off) the open road.
In case you didn’t know, Norton is a British motorcycle company, launched in Birmingham in 1898 and today they are designed and manufactured in the Midlands.
The helmet (available in black and silver) has an open face and sun visor £165 whilst the Belinni Cap sports the logo on the front, leather adjustable strap at the rear and contrasting lining. £27 Shop for Norton clothing and accessories here.

On-time Dad: Timeless Leather Wristwatch
We love the story behind Povey’s watches, it’s what makes them very unique.
Based in London (home of Greenwich) with traditional leather from a tannery in Walsall.
They set out to draw on our history and ceaseless quest for adventure to create a timeless range of watches, called The Albion (the oldest known name for the island of Great Britain). £180
Gardening Dad: Classic Pruning Knife and Sharpening Steel Gift Set
For the green-fingered Fathers, this Pruning Knife from Harrod is a practical gift that will last forever.
Made in England by Burgon and Ball, and endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society no less, this pruning knife and sharpening steel, which comes in a luxurious presentation box, will showcase your thoughtful nature. £49.95
If you haven’t already had a nosey at the website links, we suggest you take a look and browse their sites for other gift ideas too, as there are lots to choose from. We could only feature one or two products per brand.
And of course, a gift guide wouldn’t be complete without mentioning what a great idea it would be to wrap these gifts in personalised wrapping paper!
Head to our MAKE page, where you can design your own bespoke wrapping paper, just for Dad on Father’s Day, with your own thoughtful message. It’s the icing on the cake!
