1. For the pint loving papa

Is your Dad prone to a few pints down the pub? Or simply enjoys a few cans at home in front of the football/rugby/boxing? This quirky Kilner beer keg will be a great addition to his man cave! It’ll make him feel like he’s bought the pub to his home, and with the trend for home bars going nowhere fast, this could be the thing he needs to get started on his own stylish space.

2. For the security conscious dad

Is your Dad always reminding you to check your locks? Does he keep an eye on the local Facebook crime page in both your area and his own? A new security camera could be just the gift to help scratch his security itch! Swann’s latest security camera is equipped with six months of battery life, full HD video, 2-way talk to greet guests or warn off intruders, as well as heat and motion-sensing technology. If you combine the gift with the Swann Outdoor solar panel, Dad will never need to worry about charging up the camera.

While it’s a bit on the pricey side, it’s the perfect gift if you’re clubbing together with your siblings or want to spend a bit more for Father’s Day this year.

3. For the DIY dad

If your Dad is a handy man, he’ll always be looking for tools to bulk up his collection. Whether he fancies himself as a future member of The Repair Shop or is always on-hand to hang pictures, shelves or build furniture for you, he’ll definitely be chuffed with a new tool. This 18V random orbit sander is handheld and ideal for fine finishing, paint removal and other light to medium sanding tasks. It’s conveniently cordless, and can sand for up to 50 minutes on a single charge.

4. For the football fan

Some Dads are happy to sit in front of football whether it’s the Champions League final, or a mid table clash in the Conference league. If your Dad falls into this category, this stadium scratch map might just be the perfect present for him. Showcasing 92 English football grounds, your Dad can scratch off the ones he’s visited and then plan his trips to the ones he’s not yet made it to. It’s perfect wall fodder for his man cave and is bound to inspire some trips away!
