Personalised Gift Ideas for Father's Day

Get ready for Father’s Day, as children both young and old gear up for Sunday 19 June. And that means it’s time to start thinking about ways to tell the most important man in your life (or at least one of them!) how much you care.

When is Father’s Day?

Father’s Day is always held on the third Sunday in June. This year it falls on 19th June. So this year don’t forget to mark it up in your diary, grab your pen (or phone calendar) now and write it down before you forget!

What is the best gift for Father’s Day?

Personalised gifts are an ideal gift for Father’s Day. There’s a huge choice of course, but nothing really beats gifting something personal. Personalised gift ideas for men might sound tricky, but in reality, nothing could be easier. If you check out our range of one-of-a-kind gifts you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Photo gifts for dad

You can’t go wrong with photo gifts, be it a mug, memory book, banner, a special greeting card with a personal message, a personalised notebook or a DIY homemade gift. Opting for a gift that bears a sentimental photo you both love could be one idea or selecting a whole heap of photos and keepsakes and building them into one customised memory book would be very touching.

If you’d like to get him something fun that he will use every day, then a personalised mug might be just the ticket. Each time he opens the kitchen cupboard, or grabs a coffee or tea, he’ll think of you.

If you’re looking for something that IS personal but a tad more practical - something that he’d use daily and never tire of - then how about a personalised notebook with a photo of you both together on the cover? He could take it to work, keep it in his briefcase or rucksack. Both functional and sentimental.

Another unique idea to consider is to present him with a detailed memory book that contains treasured photos or sentimental keepsakes that remind him of your time together. Nothing can replace this and he’s sure to be deeply moved when he sees and remembers all of your good times together with this ultimate personal gift. You can create your one-of-a-kind memory book with one of our quality lay-flat, hardback books.

Personalised Father’s Day gift

It doesn't matter if the dad in your life is biological, adopted, a grandfather or a father figure…getting him something special shows what he means to you and is there for him to see or use all year round.

Other than photo gifts, personalised gift ideas could also mean a DIY homemade present that you’ve worked on from scratch. This sends him the message loud and clear that you have gone to a lot of trouble as it’s for him. It also subtly sends this beloved man the sure-fire message of how much you enjoy having his presence and influence in your life.

One of the very first men a child gets to know, trust and follow as a role model is usually their dad, hence the quote that sums it all up: “The power of a dad in a child’s life is unmatched” (anon.), his guidelines, support, love, action, words and deeds – and let’s not forget the awful dad jokes – remain with you for life. So why not create a personalised gift that contains his life story or words of wisdom to show him just how much he has provided for you!

How you choose to personalise a gift is entirely up to you. You can opt for one of his legendary (yet bad) dad jokes, one of his (many, many) sayings, an apt quotation or just a straightforward picture of the two of you together. Anything that will catch his eye, holds special meaning or just makes him smile every time he uses that now special mug. Don’t hold back, the cornier the better!

Personalised Father’s Day party decorations

Perhaps you want to go even bigger and wish to gift him an experience rather than a wrapped present? If you’ve got something a little fancier or more involved in mind – why not throw him a surprise party? He’ll be absolutely blown away to see something he’s not expecting. Adding personal touches at the party will be the icing on the cake (excuse the pun): a personalised banner (second best to his name in lights) can be strung across a room (making it perfect for an IG post).

Father’s day card ideas

Father’s Day isn’t complete without a special Father’s Day card. Why not try a personalised, environmentally friendly, recycled Father’s Day greetings card? Some great Father’s Day card ideas include:

- Pictures of family memories, such as your favourite holiday moments

- Personalised messages including inside jokes or funny one-liners that your dad likes to crack

- Matching the card with your personalised banner or decor for the day

At WTTB, we make personalisation super easy. You choose the colour, design and words and we put it all together to surprise him!

Whatever personal gift you decide to give him this summer you’ll know it will be treasured by him (and you) for all the years ahead.
