On 16th June, we’re celebrating Dads nation wide, so it’s about time you show yours just how much he means to you!
Dads can be difficult to buy for, which is why you need to #MakeItMonksCross and let us do the leg work. We’ve found our top 10 gifts, available in our stores, that every type of dad will love, from football mad to movie buff dads!
1. One for the dads who know what they like.
You can’t go wrong with getting Dad’s favourite scent this Father’s Day, or even a new one! Superdrug & Boots have endless collections of aftershave that your dad will love, why not even get it in a gift set?
2. For the caffeine addicts.
If your Dad is anything like us then he NEEDS his morning coffee to function. So make his day and have a browse of Debenhams range of coffee machines so he can start every day the right way. This Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine is on £40 down from £100!
3. For the stylish Dads.
There’s one little accessory that makes a mans outfit go from 0 to 100 and that’s a stylish watch! There’s no need to break the bank, River Island has an amazing selection that your Dad is bound to love.
4. One for the Gamers
We all know that Dads are just big kids, so embrace it and buy them a new game or a gaming accessory!
Don’t worry if you don’t know the first thing about gaming and what they’d like, play it safe with a GAME voucher.
5. For the book worms and holiday readers.
Whether your dad always has a book in his hand or he just needs a page turner for his next holiday, you’ll definitely be able to find his next read in WHSmith.
If he fancies himself a bit of a shoe guru then you can’t go wrong with treating him to some new kicks from Schuh’s amazing range.
…or for the ones who need a little help with their look. Give him that helping hand and find him an outfit that’ll turn him from early 2000s Steve Carrell to 2019 Steve Carrell
Check out the men’s range in River Island, H&M and Debenhams.
9. One For the foodies!
If your dad is one who loves his food then look no further. Debenhams has some fantastic gift sets in that he will LOVE! From Nando’s peri peri kits to a chocoholics dream, there’s hundreds of gift sets in store.
10. For the beer lovers!
If your dad loves a cold pint whilst watching the tele on a Saturday night then this is the gift for him. Check out our craft beer gift sets in store at Debenhams.
We hope our little gift guide has given you endless ideas on how to spoil Dad this Father’s Day!
From all of us here at Monks Cross we hope you have a Happy Father’s Day!
