What is the best gift for Father's Day?

Whilst the mainstay socks, slippers and leather goods are a decent enough present to give, there many options out there to help you avoid gift-repeating presents that have become, a little, well boring. For something a little more unexpected, unique Father's Day gifts such as fitness trackers, speakers and, of course grills, are sure to impress your dad on his special day. If your dad loves tech and smart home goods, then think about gifts that he can plug in, connect to his phone and speak to his tech-savvy brain. Retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab) are great for offering a vast range of products at the best prices. And stores such as Uncommon Goods (opens in new tab) have a variety of fun-loving gifts at uber affordable prices that don't compromise on style. 

That being said, as with any gift, the best purchase you can make is one that speaks to the individual you're wanting to celebrate. So think about what he likes, loves and enjoys to do. Whether it be gadgets, whiskey or anything that's even out of the ordinary, be sure to pay attention to what makes him smile. And don't forget dad's love flowers too!
