Do you need some help picking a pressie for a special dad? Well we have a selection of gifts reviewed right here and there is something for everyone. Ranging from Ted Baker, to Northcroft Golf to Shepherd Neame, all the gift help you need is here!
Ted Baker M Gift Set (The Perfume Shop exclusive)
Perfect for the sophisticated, modern dad, this set comes in a typically sylish Ted Baker gift box. It contains a30ml Eau de Toilette along with a 100ml Body Wash and After Shave Balm, all infused with a fresh, woody and understated fragrance with top notes of tonka bean, musk and vetiver combined with a spicy blend of amber and coriander. The range has a really clean, fresh and masculine scent which we think any man would love.
The Tee Up and BAMP from Northcroft Golf club
These two gadgets from Northcroft Golf club are absolute must buys if your father is a fan of golf, but on the more mature side. The Tee-up “allows a golfer to place the ball and tee-peg on the tee effortlessly without having to bend down, even if the hands are not as steady as they once were”. We found this device to be super lightweight and well built too; it was just rugged enough to sit in the golf bag without fear of damage. Fully customisable in height, the device made it really easy for a range of different sized users to tee up without a hitch. Plus, the device has a stabiliser to make it easier for those who have slightly shakey hands to place their ball and tee. A really magnificent device this!
The BAMP is a really handy addition to any putter and allows (with a small bit of movement only), for a golf ball to be easily retrieved at the climax of a hole. Built with strong and yet flexible materials, we found this to be a simple and yet highly efficient new element to our golfing armoury. We were promised that the BAMP utilises a powerful magnet which screws into the top of the golf club, which would ensure that we were able to pick up both ball and marker in one hit. And, thankfully, this worked a treat to make picking up after a hole as easy as it ever has been.
The Tee Up is priced at £41 including delivery and the BAMP £10, but we think they are both worth every penny.
Both are available from www.northcroftgolf.com
Tactus VitriFender and Smootch
VitriFender (premium tempered glass screen protector from £14.99)
If your dad is clumsy and prone to dropping his smartphone, then this is a must have gift for him this Father’s day! Formulated from premium tempered glass, the VitriFender is one of the finest screen protectors we have tried.. Beautifully thin, shatterproof and three times harder than PET film, it has been designed to withstand the accidental drops or car key scrapes. The VitriFender also has an oleophobic coating that reduces fingerprint marks and other contaminants, making the screen easier to clean. Perfect for keeping makeup smears or your child’s sticky finger prints at bay.
For the Galaxy S4, Samsung S5, iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPad Air, iPad Mini/Mini with Retina, from £14.99, Argos
These super cool little devices are designed to sit on the back of your device, provide protection and also to stop your device sliding around. The Tactus Smootch is available as skin for the iPhone 5/5s and as a protective case for the iPhone 6. The array of colours is pretty special, so we are sure that your dad will find a colour to suit! For iPhone 5/5s/6 (4.7), from £9.99, Argos
The Shepherd Neame Heritage Collection
If your dad is a fan of brilliant ales then this box is the best gift we could recommend. When we received the Shepherd Neame Heritage Collection we were blown away by the value and high quality products.
The 12 bottle mixed case from Britain’s oldest brewer, based in Faversham, Kent, includes Bishops Finger, 1698, Brilliant Ale, Double Stout and India Pale Ale. It also includes detailed tasting notes, so you can taste and assess each ale, just like their Master brewers.The Heritage Collection is available priced £23.95 at www.shepherdneame.co.uk/shop
The Heritage Collection is a mixed case of 12 bottled Shepherd Neame beers, comprising:
- 2x Bishops Finger (5.4% abv)
- 2x 1698 (6.5% abv)
- 2x Brilliant Ale (5.6% abv)
- 3x Double Stout (5.2% abv)
- 3x India Pale Ale (6.1% abv)
Personalised port from BuyAGift.co.uk
If you dad isn’t really into ales, but likes something a little more sophisticated to sip, then we recommend this personalised bottle of Port from Buy A Gift.co.uk. The label can be tailored to read anything you wish to give that extra special touch this Father’s Day. The bottle’s label comes with your personalised message, for a unique and heartfelt gift. You may choose a traditional white, traditional black, or antique-style label, and for a small additional cost you can present the bottle in an attractive gift box to make it extra special.
The port is also of very high quality and goes above and beyond our expectations on flavour. A late Bottled Port from Sandeman – an importer with over 200 years of pedigree – is a single-year vintage. Deep and full of character, it has been aged in wood barrels for 4-6 years to give it complexity and smoothness. One to certainly consider!

FixMeStick is an easy to use ‘plug and play’ anti-virus USB stick. It’s a practical gift for ‘digital Dads’ wanting a no fuss anti-virus solution for the family. FixMeStick is new to the UK market, costing £45 per stick which can be used on up to 3 PCs or Macs per year. Further info below:
FixMeStick is a self-bootable USB device which operates in its own clean environment, identifying viruses and malware such as spyware, Trojans, ransomware and so on.
The device is straightforward to use, with users able to plug in and start scanning for viruses and malware. The FixMeStick cleans up devices already carrying viruses and malware but also can be used on a regular basis on ‘clean’ machines as a pro-active virus scanner. It can be used as a regular ‘check-up’ tool for your PC or laptop (a monthly check is recommended).
More than 250,000 viruses and malware appear every day, and other software based virus protection services only catch approximately 45% of these. The FixMeStick is automatically updated with the latest virus information to stay up to date with new developments.
Cost savings: other ‘one time’ virus removal services cost more than FixMeStick itself.
FixMeStick is also designed to work with your current device to speed up computer performance by removing viruses periodically.
You can keep multiple devices protected, with up to three devices covered by the USB FixMeStick.
