Need ideas for Father’s Day? look no further

By @FionnualaMcNult

Father’s Day may seem a long way off, but it’s always best to prepare and check that job off the list. I find shopping for Father’s Day more difficult than shopping for Mother’s Day because it always seems to be between gifts like socks, beer, or a t-shirt. If you’re looking to upgrade this year but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve compiled 5 gifts you can give your dad this year that he’s not expecting.

For the music lover

If your dad likes to spend his time outdoors, whether it’s in the garden, taking walks or hosting barbecues, this will be a great addition. The Bose Soundlink Micro speaker has great features like damage resistance and waterproofing, so don’t worry if a drink gets knocked over or knocked off a table. He can enjoy this gift long after the party is over, and if you’re lucky, he might even let you connect to it. The speaker comes with a tear-resistant silicone case, so there’s no risk of damage on the go and is a great way to store away if the music gets too much. It’s compatible with Google Assist and Siri, so no need to keep typing the tunes, just shout them into your phone and the speaker will do the rest.

For the domestic bird

If your dad is more of a stay-at-home, chill-out guy, he’ll need the best of the best loungewear to stay comfortable. Next and BooHoo man offer a range of different loungewear for the home. Keep it casual with a shorts and hoodie set that’s perfect for cooler spring nights. Then there are lots of different colors to choose from so there’s one to fit the vibe your dad likes. If it’s more of a complete pajama type, check out BooHoo, they have pajama sets to suit any occasion, whether it’s a cozy movie night with the family or working from home. Top it off with a lightweight dressing gown which is essential in spring, especially with the unpredictable weather we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks.

For the outdoor adventurer

If your dad is obsessed with the outdoors, camping, or hiking, you can take advantage of that too. The extra large double parachute hammock, perfect for sitting and enjoying the view. The hammock comes in a waterproof bag so it’s easy to carry anywhere, it’s lined so it’s extra strong and can hold up to 1000 pounds on the unique strap design. There’s room for two people so there’s no chance of someone grabbing it, setup is quick and easy as it unfolds straight from the bag and clips onto any surface you choose. There is a lined storage bag in the hammock. When you’re done, you can quickly put the hammock away and throw it in the bag. Did I mention it comes in 7 colors? The hardest part will be deciding which color will suit your dad the best.

For the golfer

If your dad spends most of his weekends convincing you of his golf quality, why not ask him to prove it and practice more. The Grassroots Par Three Putting Green will put your dad’s skills to the test, this mat can be used indoors and outdoors making it perfect if the weather isn’t great. The surface stays smooth over time, so there’s no need to worry about fraying and he can’t use that as an excuse. It has a non-slip bottom so there is no movement of the mat when playing.
