Dads are hard to buy for – it’s a universal truth which makes default gifts like whiskey and socks an easy, appealing backup plan. But for the men in your life who seem like they have everything, our unusual Father’s Day gift ideas are sure to knock their socks off, while also knocking socks off your list.
If your father or grandfather spends a lot of time at the office, complete with all the early mornings that come with being a workaholic, treat them to a new clock. It’s such a practical piece that it’s something we avoid spending money on for ourselves, making it a perfect Father’s Day gift idea. And with so many on-trend options to choose from, you’ll find one to suit your budget. We love this designer flip clock by Solari, which can be wall-mounted or used as a tabletop piece.
Everyone knows that dads have ‘unusual’ musical preferences (!). But if your dad spends a lot of time in a workshop, home office, or cooking in the kitchen, a modern radio is a great gift option that’ll put a spring in their step. The Model One digital radio by Tivoli has a chic look that won’t appear out of place in any interior decor style.
Help your dad rise and shine this Father’s Day by upgrading his morning coffee routine. This black cappuccino cup and saucer is loved by baristas, and will ensure every cup of coffee your dad brews hits the spot. Their chic monochrome design will fit seamlessly into any kitchen, without making it look cluttered.
Not all dads love the great outdoors. But for those who do, outdoor and workout wear is a functional Father’s Day gift idea – and a sneaky way to update their look. A baseball cap’s a safe bet, as most are universal sizes. This on-trend white slogan baseball cap has street cred that Dad will love – it was designed by DMC, in collaboration with Café de la Semaine.
If your dad likes to entertain, make him the host the most with this unusual Father’s Day gift idea: vintage style cocktail glasses. When combined with a cocktail recipe book, or a brass cocktail shaker, it’s a gift that’ll keep Dad happy for hours.
