Finding the right present for Father’s Day can be quite a tricky feat. And with the annual event just around the corner, it can be easy to go into full panic mode if you haven’t already bought a gift or even thought about what to get yet. If you’ve got a few ideas, then maybe it’s time to settle on one and buy it right away to avoid the last minute dash. But for those that haven’t got a clue, we’re here to help. This year, forget about the typical dad gifts like a nice tie or a set of handkerchiefs and treat him to something a little... cooler. We’ve curated a list of gifts your dad will really like to suit whatever budget you may have, from affordable to mid-range to premium. You can thank us later.

Affordable (Under £50)

If you’re truly scraping the budget barrel, then as much as it pains us to say this, you might just have to give the gift of Emporio Armani Navy Socks this Father’s Day. Made from soft cotton so they can least give your dad’s feet a comfortable hug when worn, these socks also feature an embroidered logo for a subtle yet sophisticated touch of branding. Now down to £18, these Navy socks are an easy present – just make sure you make it up to dad with a better gift next year. Small Logo T-Shirt in White by Barbour International. You can never go wrong with a simple white tee, which means you can’t go wrong with the Small Logo T-Shirt from Barbour International too. An easy everyday wear and a piece that can double up as a layering tee during the colder months, this short sleeve t-shirt is perfect if your dad is the kind of guy who lives in his t-shirts. With a £30 price tag, this wallet friendly gift is sure to add a biker-esque aesthetic to your old man’s wardrobe. Dads accessorise too and what better present to give him this Father’s Day than a practical Weekend Cap from BOSS Green? Available in a lovely shade of Wine, this cap features a striking edging detail to the peak, is fully adjustable thanks to the Velcro fastening to the rear and is finished with a 3D BOSS logo to the front. Coming in at £40, this is a gift worth buying, as it will no doubt come in handy when the temperatures reach its peak. The Ted Baker Men Dodger Washbag in Dark Orange. The Dodger Washbag in Dark Orange by Ted Baker Men is the ideal gift for the man who travels and travels often. This trusty washbag features two exterior zip pockets and a main zip pocket that boasts a roomy interior, which can fit anything (travel sized obviously) from a bar of soap to shaving cream and a razor. Made with a handle for grab-and-go ease and finished with Ted Baker branding to the front, this washbag will keep your dad’s toiletries organised – and he’ll have you to thank for that. The best part about this accessory? It's now down to £42 from £60. A bargain buy if you ask us.

Mid-range (£50-£100)

One of our bestselling pieces from Barbour is the Patrick Shirt in Plum and it’s clear to see why. This smart button down shirt features a Tattersall pattern all over, making it a versatile piece that’d be a great welcome addition to any man’s wardrobe. Cut in a tailored fit, this shirt also boasts a single chest pocket, a button down collar and single barrel cuffs that can be worn for both casual and professional events. With a price tag of £60, this shirt is the perfect present for the working dad. Loving this piece? Click here to view the rest of the Barbour shirts collection at EQVVS. The Tommy Hilfiger Cotton Sweat in Navy. Also available in Grey. Sweatshirts are a staple in every man’s wardrobe – and for good reason. They’re versatile, comfortable and best of all, they suit almost every gentleman, so we think the Cotton Sweat from Tommy Hilfiger would make for a thoughtful gift your dad can wear all year round. Available in Navy and Grey, this sweat features a classic crew neck as well as long sleeves, so come chilly summer nights or colder autumn and winter mornings, we’re sure this sweat will be more than happy to make an appearance. The embroidered branding to the chest makes this piece a little less ordinary too. Another great thing about this sweat is that your wallet won’t take too much damage as it’s down by 25%.

They also feature a number of pockets that have less bulk compared to its original counterpart. An easy pair to wear and a gift that won’t cost you the earth as it comes to £70, these shorts are an easy hit if your dad loves the great outdoors. The Fred Perry Holdall in Tan. A reliable holdall would make for a great present especially if your dad likes travelling, so we recommend the Fred Perry Holdall in Tan. With a full zip closure, this bag boasts a spacious interior, making it the ideal accessory to have for a long weekend away. This holdall has two durable shoulder straps but can also be worn as a shoulder bag because of the detachable canvas strap that hooks on to either side of the bag. Finished with a printed Fred Perry logo to the front, this £80 holdall exudes an almost premium feel without the extortionate price tag.

Premium (£100 and above)

The C.P. Company Marl Tacting Polo in Dazzlin Blu. Also available in Blu Radiance and Green Gables. A smart polo is timeless and it’s certainly worth every penny, so why not treat the best man in your life with the Marl Tacting Polo in Dazzlin Blu from C.P. Company? Available in two other colours – Blu Radiance and Green Gables – this short sleeve polo shirt showcases a unique shade of blue, which was achieved through C.P. Company’s intensive garment dyeing process. With contrast collar and sleeve trims, intricate stitch detailing to the shoulders and a 2 button placket, this polo is full of style so what’s not to love? The beauty of a polo shirt lies in its versatility, meaning it’s perfect for weekend barbecues as well as casual Friday’s at work. With a price tag of £105, this polo is anything but cheap, but it’s a piece that we guarantee will remain in his wardrobe for quite some time. Classic white sneakers will forever be a winner in any man’s collection and if your dad is quite fashion savvy, then he might appreciate the Rumba Pump by BOSS Bodywear. Crafted from slick and smooth leather, these low-top trainers might look simple, but it’s filled to the brim with subtle detailing that any sneaker head will love. With a contoured panelling as well as exposed stitching all over, these all white trainers will pair well with nearly everything because of its minimalist aesthetic. Finished with the BOSS logo to the side, these shoes also have a durable rubber sole which provides comfort and allows for all day wear too. The best part? These trainers are currently down to £128 (that’s 20% off!), so get them while you can. The Billfold Wallet in Black by Paul Smith Accessories. Wallets usually get forgotten about until they’re quite literally falling apart, so why not surprise your dad this Father’s Day with the Billfold Wallet in Black from Paul Smith Accessories? Presentable in any kind of situation, this wallet has more than enough card slots and compartments for your dad to stash his cards, ID and bills away. Lined in black fabric, which contrasts beautifully with the signature stripe interior, this wallet is the ultimate accessory because of its innate ability to remain simple, quirky yet elegant all at the same time. While it isn’t cheap at £140, we’re sure it’s a gift he’ll treasure until it eventually falls apart again. And finally, if you really want to treat your old man this Father’s Day, we’ve got just the thing: the Talbrook Jacket in Carnelian by Belstaff. A contemporary, versatile and lightweight piece, this stunning piece of outerwear will add some serious edge to your dad’s outfit. With a full zip opening, a pointed collar and two chest pockets for practicality, this shirt jacket also features tonal stitching details and snap stud fastened cuffs for that extra touch of style. Finished with the distinctive Belstaff logo patch to the left sleeve, this overshirt is the perfect wear for chilly summer nights as well as cold autumn and winter days. We recommend sizing up as the jacket fits small to size. Hurry up and grab this piece because it won’t say at £220 (that’s 20% off) forever.
