With less than a week left until Father’s Day, we thought we’d give you a helping hand.

Is a ‘World’s Best Dad’ mug not going to cut it again this year?

Or is your old man overwhelmed by the ever-growing mountain of socks and slippers he receives on an annual basis?

If so, you’re in the right place. From tech to t-shirts and fragrances to footie, you’re bound to find something to suit dad at Frenchgate stores with our handy top ten Father’s Day gift ideas list…

1) HMV

Every music loving dad lives for telling you music was better in his day, don’t they? With the recent resurgence of vinyl, why not pop down to HMV and pick up a Crosley Revolution record player, or have a flick through their extensive vinyl collection?

2) Sports Direct

You can call it coincidence, or you can call it fate but England’s first fixture in this year’s FIFA football world cup falls the day following Father’s Day. What better way to get him ready for the month-long bonanza of football than his very own England Team Football jersey?  A gift that’s sure to hit the back of the net this Father’s Day.


3) The Chuckling Cheese Company

We’re so happy to offer a warm welcome to The Chuckling Cheese Company, who will be opening a branch in our centre in the coming months.

So, don’t panic if dad ‘Camembert’ to ‘Brie’ without his cheese fix this Father’s Day! The artisan cheese makers have opened a temporary kiosk in the centre, offering a selection of their finest and most popular selections.

4) BadRhino

Is your dad larger than life – literally? Don’t worry, BadRhino has him (and maybe you) covered! The big and tall men’s fashion outlet retails sizes from Medium all the way through to an 8XL. The store offers an array of on-trend pieces and styles, like this Burgundy Striped Oxford Shirt that is reserved enough for a formal family dinner, yet casual and relaxed enough for a summer afternoon in a beer garden with the boys.

5) Boots

It’s safe to say beards are a trend in men’s fashion that are showing no signs of letting up. If your papa was blessed with a face full of follicles, why not pick up this ‘Blackspice Beardcare Set by Mancave’? Coming with beard wash, beard control solution and beard oil, this is a gift that’s going to put a visible smile on any father’s face.

6) Argos

Is dad a gadget geek? He’ll love the Ryze Tello Drone. Coming with a built in 5-megapixel camera, the ability to record HD video, a top speed of 8 meters per second and an ability to perform mid-air acrobatics, this drone is accessible fun right out of the box and perfect for any dads who are tech-heads.

7) Vault Menswear

If your Dad looks to look cool in his clothes, then Vault Menswear is definitely the shop for you to pick out a chic treat this Father’s Day. With items from great brands such as Superdry, Lyle and Scott, Lacoste and Pretty Green all available you will be spoilt for choice for a gift. Look out for some great saving too, we love the Lacoste Army Tee at just £33.75.

8) The Fragrance Shop

Fragrances are a staple of gift giving throughout the year, for all manner of occasions including Father’s Day. Always a welcome present and a sure-fire winner, so if you want to play it safe this year why not pick up the ‘BOSS the scent’ gift set from Hugo Boss? Including a 50ml eau de toilette and a 75ml deodorant stick, it will put a spring in the step of any dad, whether he’s spending a day in the office or a night on the tiles.

9) Cosmo

An around the world trip would be an unbelievable Father’s Day present, but if you’re like the 99% of us and that isn’t feasible, why not just take his taste buds around the globe instead? Cosmo authentic world kitchen takes you from Italy to India or Japan to Jamaica, so treat any dad who’s a bit of a foodie to a lovely lunch or delicious dinner.

10) TK Maxx

Nearly every dad’s wardrobe could do with a bit of spark, and TK Maxx is just the place to find it. Their eclectic collection is sure to jazz up any father’s clobber, and this Casual Friday Palm Print T-Shirt could do just the trick, especially with summer just around the corner.
