For a few obvious reasons, Father's Day feels a little different this year. Our normal plans might be shelved, but there's never been more reason to indulge pops with something he really wants, whether a gift or an experience. That’s where our 2020 Father's Day Guide comes in. Think of this as the ultimate guide to being Dad’s favourite child…
For The Beer Lover: uKeg Go
The pub garden may be sorely missed, but this go-anywhere growler will allow Dad to take an ice-cold, freshly carbonated beer with him anywhere he likes: a picnic in the park, camping in the peak district, the beach or just his backyard. Durable, lightweight, easy to use and ready to rock.
For Nature and History Addicts: National Trust Membership
The gift that just keeps giving, there will be no better way to explore the great outdoors (and some unforgettable indoors) once the world goes back to normal. Not that you’ll have to wait until then because the National Trust has already started opening some of its 500 parks and gardens, with over 200 countryside and coastal car parks already open. Explore once more.
For The Adventure Enthusiast: The Adventure Bag
No section of society is more overdue an adventure than Dads, and no piece of equipment will get them more excited about their next exploit than this go-anywhere, do-anything bag. Tough, durable, highly functional and made from recycled plastic, we set out to create a bag that makes travelling as epic as possible, with the sort of features that will have him calling you every five-minutes to discuss adventure ideas.
For The Coast Fanatic: Britain’s Best Hidden Beaches
Following the latest government advice, people are allowed to travel to beauty spots across England with members of their own household (so long as you socially distance). Thankfully, England has a selection of hidden beaches that would make this Father’s Day unforgettable. From Dorset to Devon, Cornwall to Norfolk, our coastline has something for every kind of Dad.
For The BBQ King: Deluxe Grill Set
Since time began, Dads around the world have prided themselves on their grilling ability; a responsibility that comes with a lot of pressure when it’s your turn to host. So this year, help Pops become the grill master he always dreamed of being by replacing his mismatched tongs with a 20-piece deluxe grill set, complete with storage case.
For The Remote Worker: The Commuter
If you're looking for a backpack that delivers both comfort and style, then we'd like to introduce you to the Stubble & Co Commuter. Featuring direct access padded 16" laptop compartment, and a generous interior to hold everything you need for the day ahead. It's handcrafted with premium waterproofed canvas for long-lasting quality so Dad can work from wherever takes his fancy. You can even tell him it features in the T3 best backpacks of 2020 list!
For The Ultimate Dad: Masterclass Subscription
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but with Masterclass we beg to differ. Your old man can learn anything from the greatest names in everything. From BBQing Texas-style to gardening anywhere, the art of mixology to chess and poker. Best of all, with its two-passes-for-the-price-of-one offer, you can reap the benefits and enjoy some serious bonding time too.
For The Weekend Explorer: The Weekender
Like everyone else in lockdown, your Dad has already planned that first weekend away, which makes this bag the perfect gift. Crafted with 16oz premium waterproofed canvas and natural full-grain leather, this 42-litre bag is the ideal travel companion whether your old man has his eye on the Isle of Skye or the Peak District, an epic road trip or a stay at an award-winning country pub.
For The Active Dad: Theragun Elite
Dads and power tools have always gone hand-in-hand, but this one is less about helping his haphazard attempts at putting up shelves and more about helping him recover from the soreness and injury, aches and pains that dads wake up with. This is the sort of percussive therapy massager that you’ll be asking to borrow, with an OLED screen, wireless charging and a personalised app experience to add to the mix.
For The Wine Connoisseur: Host A Wine Tasting
For all wine-loving dads, the ultimate treat on Father's Day is an at-home wine-tasting event, in the garden with those he’s missed spending time with. Simply do a little digging online, buy a selection of wines that come highly recommended (or have funny names), complement your selection with a spread of cheeses and grapes, and make this one to remember.
For The Backyard Chef: Ooni Pizza Oven
Everybody secretly wants to make pizza at home and your pops is no different, so help him take his al fresco cooking experience up a level with this gas-powered outdoor pizza oven designed for making epic, 16-inch stone-baked pizzas. We’re talking ridiculously tasty pizzas baked in just 60 seconds (and he might let you borrow it now and again).
