6 Gift Ideas for Dad in 2021

Fathers’ Day is a day of honouring fatherhood and parental bonds, as well as the influence of fathers in society. This day gives children the chance to recognise the contributions of their dads, whether biological or otherwise. With Father’s Day taking place a little later in 2021 and many outdoor venues opening up by the 20th of June, there is some exciting hope that the celebration will take on a more normal feel than last year. 

Feeling a little stuck for gift ideas for Dad?  We understand the challenges of finding something special and whether you want to remind Dad of memories already made or inspire him to make new memories shared with you, we have a few thoughts on selecting the perfect gift to show your appreciation of him and how much he is valued this Fathers’ Day.

6 Gift Ideas for Dad

Personalised Engraved Crystal Tumblers 

The grown-up version of artistic creation, this very thoughtful gift can be personalised by etching tumblers with Dad’s favourite activity, scenery, animal, or even just his initials. The tumblers come with a sterling silver base to make them even more special. For personalised tumblers, you would just need to submit your own drawing which will then be recreated on the surface of the tumbler using a process of sandblasted etching, resulting in a beautiful, frosted appearance. 

Not the creative sort?  There is also a range of readymade collections to choose from, featuring shooting, stalking, fishing, and golfing scenes which includes a matching jug.

Vintage Wine Calendar 

Surprise the wine connoisseur father who has everything with this is a rather clever and original gift. Made from polished pewter by traditional craftsmen in Sheffield and presented in a signature box, this 13cm vintage wine calendar shows, at a glance, when a bottle of wine should be kept, is perfect to drink or has, heaven forbid, possibly passed its prime. 

Sports Therapy Massage 

Fabian Adami specialises in Sports, Deep Tissue & Remedial Massage Therapy as well as being qualified in Dry Needling, Kinesiology Taping, Rock Blades (IASTM) and is a Yoga Alliance Teacher and a Level 1 CrossFit Coach. He has worked with the Victorian Premiership Rugby Union side Harlequin FC as well as with professional rugby league players at London Skolars RL. Fabian is also well known for his physiotherapy work at various massage clinics around London and has many corporate clients in the city. 

With such an impressive resume, a booking with Fabian is not only sure to impress a sports fanatic father but Fabian’s very effective massage techniques will make any hardworking dad feel wonderfully rejuvenated and destressed. When it comes to gift ideas for dad, this one is a real treat.
