Father's Day Gift Ideas 2021

Father’s Day is just around the corner and with the Government’s coronavirus restrictions set to ease, many of us will be looking forward to spending the day celebrating with family.

If your dad or father figure is notoriously difficult to buy for, we’re here to help with our guide to the best Father’s Day gifts 2021.

For the foodie

A personalised food hamper is sure to be popular with foodies. Pack it with all different types of foods and flavours, from chocolates and sweets, crisps and cheese, to craft beer or wines – you’ll find plenty of inspiration at Sainsbury’s.

Or if eating out is more their thing, there are plenty of options for Father’s Day dining at SouthGate Bath including Comptoir Libanais, Franco Manca and Yo!

For the fitness fanatic

If your father figure is more into cardio than carbs, help them to keep track of just how active they’ve been with a new smart watch from the Apple Store to monitor daily steps, sleep quality, calories burned and more.

For the avid runner, gym-goer or weightlifter, you can find gym wear including tops and shorts from JD Sports to help them to keep fit in style.

And thinking a little outside the box for fitness present ideas for dad, consider a foam roller, resistance bands, or some protein bars for something a bit different.

Or if he as a Peloton bike at home, be sure to check out its brand-new showroom at SouthGate Bath, with lots of accessories and apparel to browse.

For the outdoor adventurer

Fuel your loved one’s next adventure with a gift that will help them to make the most of the outdoors.

You’ll find a variety of specialist outdoor and hiking wear, from waterproofs to backpacks at The North Face. And not forgetting a reusable water bottle, a must-have for long days out exploring.

For the tech obsessed

If your dad is always into the latest gizmos and gadgets, here’s our top picks.

Airpods from the Apple Store are a great idea to enjoy favourite tunes or podcasts on the go. Or treat them to a smart speaker and turn up the volume for the whole family to enjoy.

Apple has also just launched new AirTags to help you keep track of your belongings – perfect for a dad who is known to misplace his car keys or wallet.

For the well-groomed

A designer fragrance is always a good choice. Head into store to try the latest ranges and chat to the team at Boots for advice on a variety of scents, from Paco Rabanne and Hugo Boss to Jean Paul Gaultier or Emporio Armani.

It also has a great range of grooming gifts including beard grooming and shaving travel kits. 

And if one gift just won’t do the trick, creating your own man spa gift basket may be the way to go.  You’ll find all of the essentials like treatments, cleansers and moisturisers from Boots.

For the style savvy

This Father’s Day, what better way to say ‘thanks for everything’ than with a shopping trip at SouthGate Bath on you, and the chance to spend some quality time together?

Start the day with lunch or a coffee at Mokoko or Caffe Nero before hitting the shops, not forgetting stops at Pret A Manger and Krispy Kreme.

If you’d rather do the choosing, bomber jackets, bermuda shorts and statement shirts all make the top lists for men’s fashion trends this season. You’ll find plenty to choose from at Urban Outfitters and Hollister.

For something more classic, you can’t go wrong with a crisp new shirt from Tommy Hilfiger.

For the dad-to-be or new dad

Help to celebrate their first Father’s Day by picking up a card at Card Factory and writing a little message from bump or the new arrival.

We know that newborns bring lots of love but steal sleep too! Lavender scented candles or sleep spray from Boots are likely to go down a treat with new parents.

Whether you’re organising a shopping trip to SouthGate Bath to buy a Father’s Day gift, or scheduling  a day out with dad to celebrate, you can find our full list of stores on our Eat Drink Shop page.
