Christmas Gift Guide – For Dad
It seems that as Christmas approaches the people that we’ve known for what seems forever and we couldn’t imagine our lives without are the hardest to buy for. Take good ol’ dad for example, for most of us he is our first teacher, our first hero and our first coach. As much as we’d love to buy him a race car or the England football squad, because let’s face it, he totally deserves it. One of the biggest worries surrounding Christmas is the cost, so how do you say Dad you’re the best without breaking the bank? We’ve created a gift guide filled with reasonably priced gifts perfect for every type of dad out there.
The Camping Dad
For the dads that seem to always be on some sort of adventure, the boot of their car typically contains a travel tool kit, some waterproofs and some emergency camping gear (torch, rope etc.). So spoil him this Christmas by making him the coolest kid at the campsite with the BBQ Tool Box. A classic looking metal toolbox which folds up for convenient and easy travel with a removable charcoal fuel tray the clean up is as easy as ever. This is a great gift for the outdoor dad
The Gadget Dad
Remember being little and absolutely loving getting to spend some time in your dad’s “man cave” with the remote control cars and pens that were never just pens Gadget dad’s always had the coolest stuff. This remote control mini drone with a fitted camera is perfect for all gadget dads or any selfie loving dads we may have out there. So while it’s still winter and too cold outside for dad to play with his toys, this drone is the perfect present for hours of fun inside the house.
With a 0.3MP built in camera the drone takes pictures and records whilst in flight it also comes with a 2GB micro SD card, memory card reader, USB charging cable and 4 spare blades so dad can take the drone with him wherever he may go!
The Chef Dad
Move over mum chef dads are historically the greatest. When growing up in a house where dad rules the kitchen, you know you’re always getting a daily feast, without any worries of what’s healthy and what’s not – because dad made it, you know it’s probably not healthy. As a child all your friends wanted to come over for tea when dad made his legendary famous pies.
The worst part of growing into an adult is not having one of dads dishes every evening after a long day at school. These bear paw oven mitts are perfect for every Chef dad, protecting them from hot trays and pans, giving the grandchildren a good giggle and not to mention helping him make that fantastic Christmas turkey – haha!
The Super Clever Dad
Whether it’s homework, watching who wants to be a millionaire or just general life advice, having a super clever dad is the best thing ever. He literally knows it all! Dad is so intelligent and knows all these incredible facts, he’s always the best person to have a good hearted debate with regarding all the latest and greatest in news and politics.
With his stacks of book, biographies and world encyclopaedia’s, these evolution bookends are a fantastic gift for dad to keep his fountain of knowledge tidy and organised whilst also bringing a little fun to his home office. The quirky bookends are the perfect conversation piece, which we’re sure the super clever dad will always appreciate.
The DIY Dad
Watching the evolution of a DIY dad is hilarious. In the beginning there were wonky shelves and tv stand that was never quite straight. Over the years, it can be noted things have slowly gotten better, the book shelves look quite professional and there’s never a leaky tap or cracked window in sight.
DIY dad often woke you on saturdays to the sound of drilling or hammering, although you suppressed much resentment back then, now you couldn’t ask for a better dad as he fixes all your dodgy cupboards in your shiny new house. So while you want to get DIY dad something that shows you appreciate his hard work and his love of fixing, asking him to build you a new entertainment unit may not be the most thought out gift, instead let him get totally creative with his own DIY Speaker Kit – hours of fun creating his own unique speaker out of literally anything that takes his fancy
The Dad Who has Everything
What to get the dad who has everything – or in some cases nothing. The dad who buys every latest gizmo and gadget the day they come out or the dad that thinks toys are for children and his hobby is walking. Two very difficult extremes that often lead to the oh so creative gift of socks. Do you know what dads who have everything don’t have? Something you’ve had personalised. Unless you give the same personalized gift yearly then it’s impossible for them to already have it. So celebrate dad this Christmas with a personalised 12 year old malt whisky.
A lot of people think giving alcohol or food presents is as generic as socks, but with the gorgeous, personalised bottle, even after the drink has gone dad has a lovely decoration to put in his bespoke bottle holder, that we know he has because he is of course the dad who has everything.
The Experience Mad Dad
Living life on the edge of his seat the experience mad dad was always the fun dad. The man who sat next to you when you just had to go on the biggest fastest roller coaster in the theme park. The one that took you on speedboats and hikes in the mountains, there was never a dull moment with dad. Give him the experience of his life by getting him a 1 hour flying lesson this Christmas.
There’s nothing quite like soaring high above the clouds and taking to the skies, something I’m sure will be an incredible new experience for dad (unless of course he’s already a pilot).
Christmas Gift Guide – Mum
Our protector, our nurse and for most of us, our best friend. From the very first second there was mum. For so many of us, mums mean more to us than words could ever describe they’ve looked after us since day one and now all we want to do is be able to look after them.
Personally my mum deserves her own island, and i’m sure many of you will agree the same about your mums unfortunately i can’t afford that – and I’m assuming that’s the same for most of the population.

So get mum something she’ll really love this Christmas (even if it isn’t an island) from one of our fantastic choices below.

Generally we want our gift to be witty, thoughtful and full of love, a tin of biscuits might not cut it for your spouse/other half.

The Motor Boyfriend
You spend your evenings watching reruns of top-gear, and your weekends watching formula 1. It’s a known fact that if you have a motor boyfriend you become quite okay with the fact that your first child will always be a car. Your partner calls the car his baby, looks after it as though it were a child and spends money on the car like it’s the only car he’ll ever have, but that’s okay it’s almost sweet to see such passion in his eyes.
