Father’s Day 2020 Gift Guide

I thought I would put together a Father’s Day 2020 gift guide like I did last year

Being able to see what other people are gifting helps give me ideas on what gift to buy

Not that my dad is particularly difficult to buy for. But having 4 brothers and being the only daughter I do try to ensure my gift is special and shows thought

So I help these ideas give you some inspiration


I would expect clothing items such as socks and t-shirts are up there amongst the most gifted items on Father’s day

A very practical gift, especially if it is an items that they would and could wear day to day. Novelty clothing items are still very much a loved gift to give and receive

a clothes rail of tops


Most men wear some form of aftershave whether that be on a day to day basis or on special occasions

It can also be something men don’t think to buy for themselves when they go shopping. Having it as a gift makes it both a practical and a personal present, they may even be reminded of you when they wear it

I think this Grooming Box from Latest In Beauty is a fantastic idea


Whether your father figure is a film buff or keen on sitcoms, there will likely be a blu ray or DVD that you could purchase for them

Music entertainment too in the form of a digital download voucher or a CD can be great gifts. It is always good to ensure you are sure on their taste and style of entertainment as there is such a wide range of genres to choose from

Concert and event tickets could be more your father’s type of entertainment and even you could potentially gift and do together

Food & Drink

Food gifts can be in the form of a personalised item where you have then decorated with your own words. Bottles of alcoholic drink can also be personalised with your choice of message to make these types of gifts more personal and meaningful

Beerhawk have a Cheers Dad beer box which could make a great present. Or maybe a meat bouquet or these manly gift boxes from The Manly Man Co® you can  visit link here

a gift box filled with jerky snacks

Having a meal out in his favourite pub or restaurant is a lovely way of celebrating either the day itself or having the meal as something to look forward to



Gadgets as gifts could leave you open to a whole range of ideas. Whether you father has a hobby or a craft they take part in. Something fitting with that could make a great gift

Fishing is often a popular past time or playing football. You could find an accessory as a gift unique to their hobby

Not On The High Street has an wide range of Father’s Day got ideas

Personalised Cards

I do enjoy designing personalised cards as part of gifts to people

A couple of companies I have previously purchased from are Moonpig and Funky Pigeon

You can upload your own images and put your own message in the card

Hopefully these ideas from my Father’s Day 2020 Gift Guide will help you make your gift selection

Pin this for later

      As has often been said :- We tend to have difficulty deciding on gifts for the men in our life. Personally I have often went for some type of clothing. This prize would be a wonderful gift, as skin care is an important aspect of life. The men often needing support in this aspect, as often preoccupied with other concerns. Yet the elements/ weather can take it’s toll on skin. Moisturisation being important as weather can dry out skin. Also as we age :- The skin can become dry, can be more at risk of skin condition/s. So some tender loving care for skin is appropriate.

    I find men so hard to buy for – but think this is a fantastic idea. Everyone needs to wash and freshen up – and perhaps shave – in the morning, don’t they? Love the small, different bottles of product. Problem solved!
