Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day appears to have crept up on us this year.

We are not entirely sure how that has happened and we are usually more prepared than this but fear not, we have a collection of perfect Father’s Day Gifts for you to choose from, to take the panic out of your last minute shopping.

So grab a cuppa and have a browse.

What’s your favourite?



North Face Rucksack

£81.00 North Face


We were told that North Face has updated the classic Borealis backpack by giving its suspension system an overhaul and adding easier-access pockets. Ideal for regular walks, commutes and urban adventures, this everyday pack provides ample storage for all your essentials including gadgets like laptops and tablets and features the brand’s FlexVent system which uses injection-moulded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back panel to deliver uncompromised support and enhanced ventilation.

Our review team have really put this backpack through its paces on days out (in the rain) and for holiday adventures too. It is an ideal piece of camping equipment and an all round sturdy but stylish backpack that wouldn’t look amiss on the daily commute or a camping adventure. The only problem that we see with this backpack is the arguments over who is going to use it!

Suit Carrier

£64.99 from dobell.co.uk

Every man needs a suit bag that is a classic and timeless wardrobe addition. It is an an essential piece of luggage for any suit wearer. The range of suit bags from Dobell have been specifically designed to protect the garments, so you can travel with ease between events or meetings and still look your best when you get there. We particularly like the multi purpose function of these luxury suit carrier, which is dual purpose and has a detachable briefcase, making life easy for the commuter or traveller dad!


Portable Solar Panel Charger Charger

£22.99 from Robert Dyas


This is a cracking gift for any dad with a phone or chargeable gadget. Saving money, and hassle, it’s a solar charger so perfect for both travel and at home, we think it’s especially useful in the garden with it’s lightweight and showerproof qualities. It opens like a book, your plug in your gadget and place the panel in direct sunlight, then if you’re out and about it takes up no room at all – particularly if your rucksack has a laptop pocket (which most do these days!). It doesn’t need to be charged up first either, it’s gives you immediate charging providing energy in an instant. No batteries? no problem, no power? no problem. You just need some sunlight, whether it’s direct sunlight or in a car window.



£33.99 from Zoro

This tool kit is perfect for the handyman Dad. For all those little and not-so-little maintenance and repairs around the home, this highly portablekit is an ideal choice and great value for money. It features a comprehensive selection of hand tools, from spanners and screwdrivers to pliers and hammers, all quality made from chrome vanadium steel with a polished or satin finish for a long tool life.

Our review team were really pleasantly surprised with how sturdy and comprehensive this tool kit was and the moulded interior means that you tools can go back in the right places and you know if you haven’t packed everything away before you close it up (which apparently is a big plus point).


Big Green Bottles

Prices start at £11.48 from thebigbottleco.com

We are told that The Big Bottle Co is far more than just another water bottle  – It’s a statement about where you are right now and where you want to go in the future. The people that choose The Big Bottle Co are ready to embrace their health, the health of the planet and live life to the fullest. They are ready to embrace every moment and dream bigger with each new day. They Live BIG!

It is definitely BIG! There is no discreetly tucking this bottle inside your briefcase but that’s because it should be celebrated on your desk or work station. It makes sure that you get your daily water hydration needs and stops the unnecessary disposal of plastic water bottles. Both of which get a big thumbs up from the Mumsclub team!


Braun Series 9 wet & dry shaver

Prices start at £200 from Amazon

Our reviewer was once a Gillette man, choosing to wet shave daily. He switched to the Braun some time ago, after being tired of the daily hassle and the associated cost of razors and shaving foam. He was really pleased with this Braun model 9 (model 9290), telling us from the off that it was an exceptional experience, with it feeling more like a massage than a shave,. It gave a good close shave with no nicks, shave burn or irritations. He found the shaver bigger than his model 5 but said that the extra size felt better in his grip, and more secure, meaning his could hold it more comfortably, and at a better angle.

Cleaning was easy and quick with the cleaning station. It’s a superb feature, ensuring the shaver is lubricated and fully charged and ready for when he needs it.

Our reviewer is now a firm Braun man, he tells us this was significantly more impressive than any other high-end shaver he’s tried and he’d be hard pushed to try any other brand again and that you get what you pay for.

Chocolate Pizza

£10.50 from The Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Co Ltd


Chocolate works for any gifting opportunity really doesn’t it, and we fell involve with this awesome chocolate pizza designed just for Father’s Day. Hand made from gorgeous gourmet chocolate, these pizzas are both innovative and scrummy with a Belgian milk chocolate base, topped with milk chocolate curls, a handmade white chocolate plaque and coloured rainbow drops, the designs can be coloured to tie in with Dad’s favourite team’s colours too. There’s also a whole range of pizza designs, plus other types of chocolate gifts to choose from too, including a rather cool hamper that’s packed with sweet treats. They come in a real looking pizza box too, it really is a great looking gift.

Salter XL 3 in 1 Snack Maker – WIN!

£59.99 available from Amazon



I don’t know about you but the men in our families tend to love gadgety things, and making snacks can be far more an interesting activity than making, say dinner for the whole family! But this item has definitely sparked an interest in the chaps around here. It’s not the normal snack maker, it’s both a 3-in-1 covering the preparation of delicious waffles, paninis and toasted sandwiches, but the grill plates are super deep so ideal for packing in the filling, whether they’re savoury for lunches, or sweet for dessert. Oh and for washing up, it’s dead easy with the non stick plates.

Marley Headphones

£49.99 (currently reduced from &69.99)from House of Marley

The Mumsclub team have always been big fans of the House of Marley brand and with so many phones and tablets now having no headphone jack, wireless headphones are the way forward.

The House of Marley Positive Vibration 2 Wireless headphones are big drivers, soft ear cushions, precision sound; Positive Vibration 2 Wireless is an instant classic and lifestyle essential. One of the big plus points for us is the 10 hour battery because no one likes to have to be attached to a charger as that kind of defeats the object of being wireless doesn’t it?  The headphones also include a removable cable with a mic and 1-button remote so you can continue to listen plugged in should you wish, and features on-board controls and microphone to control your music and take calls with convenience. How cool is that?

Razor By Dorco

Prices from £8.74 from Razors by Dorco

If your Dad likes the classic shave, this Father’s Day, treat your Dad to the closest shave of his life, with Dorco’s premium CLASSIC razor. This razor has been developed with cutting edge Korean technology, the seven angled blade and pivoting head is the ultimate in precision shavie. The Dorco blade really raises the bar for achieving a close shave and cuts through stubble effortlessly. If you have a man that likes a sharp but soothing shave, then the Dorco Shave Gel Kit is a great idea this Fathers Day.
