Playing Cards Upgrade

If your dad’s a dog lover, he’ll really like this set of playing cards. Sit down with him for a few games of snap/pontoon/rummy. The box contains two decks, and the joker cards feature cats!

Enjoy an Upcycling Project Together​

Go through Dad’s or Grandpa’s shed and get started on an upcycling project together. Give him this lovely book by Max McMurdo for some great ideas to get you started.​

An Online Cookery Course

A gift idea for dad chefs! Sur la Table Cookery School has an array of online courses for all levels that he could do alone, or with the kids as his kitchen assistants!

A Grandfather’s Guided Journal and Memory Keepsake Book

This beautifully illustrated memory book is designed to capture and preserve a grandfather’s unique life story, from childhood memories to the precious moments spent with his grandchildren. Each page of this guided journal includes helpful prompts to inspire and record wonderful memories and life lessons, as well as family history and family stories. This unique keepsake journal is destined to become a treasured gift that any grandfather will be delighted to share with each of his beloved grandchildren.

Learn to Blacksmith

A truly unique father-and-son gift! There are various venues that offer wonderful day-long experiences and the opportunity for fathers and their kids to learn the skill of blacksmithing. Dad and his little guy can hammer out a range of tools that they’ll take home and cherish forever.

Here are some suggestions of venues:

A Classic Chess Set

If your dad plays chess, why not treat him to a new fancy set this year? He can teach the young ones how to play too! Take a look at this swanky one by Radicaln – it has marble pieces!

Solve a Jigsaw

We love the look of this countryside-themed, 1000-piece jigsaw – a real treat for grandads (or dads) who enjoy the challenge of a puzzle (with a little help from the younger family members of course!).

Dominoes for All

Everyone loves a game of dominoes, so give Dad this gorgeous set of lightweight silicone ones by Liewood. They’re easy to grip for the littlest family members too!

Matching Pair of Tom & Teddy Swim Shorts

Celebrate that wonderful bond between fathers and sons, young and old, with Tom & Teddy’s super-soft, matching trunks… and order them all wrapped up in a luxury gift box with tissue, ribbon and a personalized gift card!

Play a Game of Bocce

When the sun comes out, gather everyone outside for a game of good old-fashioned bocce. This Sunnylife set is made from wood and is hand-painted in gorgeous fresh pastel colors. A lovely gift that Dad will treasure for years to come.

Frisbee Time!

This craft-inspired crocheted MayaFlya frisbee from Fairtrade brand Buena Onda Games, looks fantastic (so much more stylish than your average plastic version) and flies brilliantly. There are different sizes and weights to choose from and they can be used as a dog toy too!

Grow Something Together

With this grow-a-tree kit you and Dad/Grandad can nurture a seedling and help it grow. The kit comes with a peet pot and full instructions to ensure you know how to care for your tree species. This is a lovely gift to share and to see how the tree grows up alongside the youngest members of the family. This little watering can will finish the gift off perfectly!

Build a Bird House Together

Dad can encourage the family’s interest in birdwatching with this DIY bird house by Spark Jump. In a simple and stylish design, this kit includes everything needed to put the house together – a lovely project to do with the kids.

Record Dad’s Family Tree

Our Family Tree is a beautifully designed hardback book that dads can use to record their unique family story. There’s space inside for family genealogy and for details about family gatherings, pets, favorite things and family traditions. Everyone, young and old, can join in and contribute something to Dad’s special book!

A Recipe Book of Your Family’s Favorite Dishes

If your dad loves to cook, treat him to a specially collated book of family-favorite recipes. Ask everyone to nominate a couple of ideas and bring them all together in one of these lovely photobooks by Create My Cookbook. You could even add in photos of family members too.
