The time to get shopping is now.

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’re stuck for ideas, or just want to get Pops a little something outside the box, we have a fair few suggestions on gifts you could look into.

Whatever category of Dad yours falls under, there’ll hopefully be something perfect for him on this list. From a classic car (experience) to personalised prints, wine decanters to accessories, we’ve got some gifts that are bound to make your dad smile.

10. Tie Tack

For the corporate dad, or the dad who is just really into their accessories, a fancy tie tack could be a really special gift.

Irish company Brian de Staic does a collection of really great quality accessories, everything from key-rings, to bracelets, to money clips. You can browse the website HERE.

9. Moonpig x Rascal’s

In celebration of dads across the nation, card and gift company Moonpig have teamed up with beloved Irish brewery Rascal’s to create a limited edition gift that’s sure to put a smile on your dad’s face this Father’s Day.

Perfectly packaged in a brightly designed blue and yellow box featuring a personalised “Cheers Dad” message, the limited edition Rascal’s beer range includes four “Happy Days” beers that are great for every kind of dad.

8. The Classic Car Experience

Seeing as you’re probably not going to gift your dad the classic car of his dreams, the next best thing is giving him the experience of owning one for an afternoon. The Classic Car Experience at Carton House provides just that; drop off your bags and get ready to explore the scenic countryside of Kildare and Wicklow in your gorgeous classic car.

Your dad can take his pick from a range of amazing options including a MGB Roadster, a Mercedes, a Morgan and a VW Beetle Cabriolet. To top the day off, you will also be provided with a gourmet picnic to enjoy on the journey. 

7. Guinness Nitrosurge

As one of the few Father’s Day gifts my dad has actually loved and continued to use over the years, I couldn’t not include it on this list.

The Guinness nitro surge cans and tap are a quality gift if you can’t make it to the Storehouse, and if your dad is a fan of the ol’ pint of plain and wants to enjoy the experience from the comfort of his own home, there’s little better than this gem.

And if he’s already got a Nitro surge tap, bringing your old man out for a pint can mean a hell of a lot too.

6. My Townland Print

The My Townland website enables you to turn your townland into a meaningful, unique, and personalised map print.

So if you’ve been listening to your dad’s stories about where he grew up for years and years now, why not show him you were listening (even if you weren’t) by getting him a map of his town?

5. Retro GAA Jerseys from O’Neills

After Paul Mescal putting GAA apparel back on the map, your Da might want to get in on the action too. O’Neills have a great selection of retro style jerseys for all counties, with 80s and 90s Irish jerseys too depending on what you’re into.

You can have a browse on their website for the perfect jersey for your dad.

4. Dublin Bricks Kit

Does anyone ever grow out of loving Lego? As you probably know by now, Dublin Bricks has spent the last couple of years lovingly recreating iconic Dublin pubs, Father Ted scenes and the Italia 90 mascot in Lego form, with instructions for how to assemble them yourself at home.

A great gift for dads who like to spend a Sunday doing something creative and therapeutic. Check out what’s on offer on their website.

3. Cheese Pairing Box

If the way to your dad’s heart is through food, then a foodie gift is just the thing. Irish company Folláin launched their Cheese Pairing Gift Box last year, putting together a selection of their favourite preserves, relishes and chutneys as well as a special cheese pairing guide and a limited edition serving spoon.

2. Wine Decanter

For the wine dads, you got to get him every gadget there is on the market to pair with this particular hobby. This wine decanter comes with a hollow for your ice, to keep your bevvy cool all night long.

Dads love a quirk, so we think this will be a serious crowd pleaser. If you’re feeling super generous, why not buy his favourite wine to go with his new decanter.

Designist have loads of little bits on their website if you want to have a browse.

1. Glover’s Alley ‘Interactive and Immersive’ Kitchen Experience

If you’re looking for an experience-style gift, especially if your dad is a foodie, this opportunity to get into a Michelin starred kitchen and learn the ropes could be the order of the day.
