Father’s Day is just around the corner and now is the time to start thinking about what your dad, grandad or another significant man in your life would like to receive as a Father’s Day gift. Buying gifts for men can be tricky at the best of times as they are known for not really giving you many hints about what they are wanting.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for that special man in your life

Taking a look at their hobbies, lifestyle and style is one sure-fire way to find something that will bring a smile to their faces as your attempt to say thank you for everything they have done for you. Let’s take a look at some top Father’s Day gift ideas I have gathered

Rest Easy with Simba Pillows

Simba Hybrid® Pillow

Life as a dad can be hectic at the best of times and any parent will tell you that it is not about the quantity of sleep you receive, it is the quality! This is why ensuring that dad can get the best night’s sleep as possible is one of the best gifts you can give him. Simba offer a range of pillows that can help dad rest his head and drift off to dreamland whilst feeling supported and comfortable.

  • The Stratos® pillow offers wonderfully cushioned support for your head and neck, as well as our innovative Stratos ‘cool-touch’ tech for extra freshness. It’s all thanks to Simba Renew Bio™, our down-like clusters of soft, springy filler, and a fresh cotton cover featuring the Stratos® technology.
  • Looking for your perfect pillow? The Hybrid® Pillow is your best option; unlike typical memory foam pillows, you can adjust it to your preferred height and softness thanks to our innovative Nanocube® inner pillow. It also features a soft, cushioning outer sleeve and a cotton cover with Stratos® ‘cool-touch’ tech.
  • Lovers of firm pillows, then the Hybrid® Firm Pillow is one’s for you. Discover the more supported sleep you’ve been dreaming of, thanks to an inner pillow of foam-enclosed Aerocoil® springs; just layer it up with the two softer pillows of Simba Renew™ in the order you prefer.

Shuffle Up the Fun with Shuffle Games Retro

Elevate family game time with the Shuffle Games Retro selection of card games. Whilst snap, patience and go fish all have their place in card game history, it doesn’t mean that these are the only games to be enjoyed with Dad.

It’s time to shuffle things up and treat Dad to a new card game this Father’s Day new card game based on one of his retro favourite films.

  • Back To The Future Card Game – Teamwork is of utmost importance here. Work together to get the Delorean to 88mph and go back to the future!

  • Knight Rider Card Game – Lifelong rivals KITT and KARR go head-to-head in a destructive battle for victory. Drain your opponent’s energy by racing around the map and performing stunts to either attack or defend.

Create Smell Memories

Very Boss Bottled Aftershave - Father's Day Gift Guide

Whilst giving smellies can often feel like a little bit of a cop-out gift when it comes to men, it is one of the most obvious things that we associate with them. Children especially can smell their dad’s favourite aftershave or body spray and automatically think of the man in their lives that offers them love and support whenever they need it – as well as the best hugs when they get the chance to snuggle into that comforting smell.

Put your feet up with GreatBeanBags
