Fathers Day Gift Ideas For The Modern Dad

Fathers Day Gift Ideas For The Modern Dad

There are plenty of gift guides doing the rounds at the moment so I though I’d write an alternative guide for the modern dad. These are for the man who’s not ashamed to show his caring side or the proud father  adjusting to a new identity. Either way, they have had the seal of approval from my own husband and father to our three boys.


A modern dad fathers day gift guide

 Portland by PacaPod changing bag

This changing bag is perfect for any dad wanting to get out and about with their little one with out the hastle of not remembering where everything is kept. It’s fool proof organising pods help remind you what you’ll need to take out with the Feeder pod and changer pod being separate bags in their own right. It’s neutral yet classic design doesn’t scream ‘I’m a baby bag’ (and is just as nice as one for the ladies!) It’s the ultimate bag to see you through all your little’s early years, and beyond as a perfect tote for days out with your older children. This could be the most economical baby purchase you could make.  You can read more on the features of the Portland by PacaPod in my review here.

Fair Trade Chocolate

A quality chocolate with an ethical message. Not only does it taste good, you’ll get the feel good factor from this purchase the coffee kick will help with the sleepless nights too.

Retro Sweet personalised chocolates

Help your dad relive happy memories with some retro sweets, there’s something for everyone here which you can personalise, so there’s no denying who they belong to! This great British Tool Box will appeal to DIY-ee Dad.

Omnio stroller

This ultra compact stroller folds down to a backpack size making public transport, biking and stairs easier to navigate. It’s also small enough to store as cabin luggage for flights.

Speciality Fathers Day tea from British Tea Lovers.

This isn’t your ordinary builders tea, this is the tea of kings. If your dad is a tea lover, why not go the extra mile and give him a cuppa to be proud of. This limited edition Father’s Day gift with premium Ceylon Black Tea is sure to show him you’ve gone the extra mile to start his day in style. British Tea Lovers are also offering a 10% discount with the code DAD166 and if you sign up to their website can get an additional 10% coupon code. Click here to buy

Custom Batman baby carrier from Wraphula

Does this really need an introduction? What dad wouldn’t wear their baby with pride with this beauty? This ergonomic carrier holds you baby in the correct position for their development and with a sun/wind hood with built in bat ears is just too cute. If Batman’s not your thing you can choose from loads of other prints. Either way, it’s a great way for dad and baby to get that precious bonding time and for when he’s feeling all alpha male and protective.

    Godiva is one of my favourite chocolatiers and they have some amazing truffles at the moment, plus some with alcohol in if your man is partial to a little smackerel of something.
