Top Presents for Father’s Day

These top 6 presents for Father's Day will ensure your father knows how much you love him. Sunday, June 19, it's Father's Day. It's a day to celebrate your relationship with him and give him a lovely treat, so he knows how much you care. Perhaps your dad is a gardener and would like some new gardening tools, or maybe he loves to do DIYs. Or if you'd prefer to give him something to relax with after doing all of the work, we've got you covered with these ideas.

The Best Father's Day Gift Ideas

  1. Garden planner

It is very easy to let the garden run away with itself, and all of the plans in your mind don't quite work out when there is so much to do! For Father's Day, treat your dad to the gift of planning. There are many different planners available, including leather-bound or paperback with different designs and lined paper inside monthly guides. Choose one that your dad will love so he can write his gardening plans down and stay organized in the garden.

  1. Wildlife camera

If your dad loves wildlife, a unique wildlife camera will be the perfect gift for him. They can be pretty compact, lightweight, and vary in price. They can be easily set to record overnight with night vision, so your dad can see what happens in the garden when he is snoring! He might find hedgehogs, deer, rabbits, foxes, or even a badger making an appearance.

  1. Magazine subscription

Does your dad love to read? There are many magazines he might like to land on his doorstep each month. From gardening and growing your own food to nature, wildlife, and even gadgets. Why not gift an annual subscription so he receives his favourite magazine regularly?

  1. Planted pot

Show him how much you love him by planting up a pot with his favourite plants. This is a lovely personal gift for your dad to show him how much you love him. You could plant perennials with interest for all seasons and underplant with spring bulbs, or pot up some annual bedding plants and let your dad take it from there. You will find a colourful range at our garden centres.

  1. Seed bombs

A great fun way to spread some wildflowers is to simply throw a seed bomb! These are available in all shapes and sizes, from small seed balls to larger packets that can be thrown or sprinkled wherever your dad wants. If you do it together, even better! You can also create seed bombs yourself by kneading potting soil and clay with some wildflower seeds. Roll them until you have cute round seed bombs. Let them air dry and throw them somewhere nectar and flowers are needed.

  1. Gardeners hand cream

If your dad gets his hands in the soil or uses tools a lot, why not gift him some hand cream or something to pamper himself with? From bath oil to scented candles, hard-working hand cream for tough hands, and gardeners soap.
