Ocean Bottle’s reusable bottles are on a mission to save our oceans; with the sale of every bottle, 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles are collected in impoverished coastal communities in Indonesia, Philippines, Brazil and Haiti where plastic pollution is worst. The brand has just launched a limited edition Black Bottle to raise funds for the Plastic Bank Community Relief Fund to help hundreds of thousands of waste workers keep doing what they’re doing in this time of Covid-19. Those workers do the critical work to collect, sort & recycle much of the world’s waste but don’t have the protection from governments or municipal authorities, so Ocean Bottle are donating 25% of proceeds from each bottle to the relief fund.
The Obsidian Black Bottle is made from stainless steel, has insulation for hot and cold drinks, partly made from up-cycled ocean-bound plastic, and is dishwasher safe. The brand has since won a Red Dot and Green Product Award.
Black bottle, £40, Ocean Bottle
5. FOR THE WELL-DRESSED DAD

For something at a more accessible price point; choose from a wide range of colourful, patterned socks to create a selection box that looks super chic.
Socks in a box, £27.50, Billy Ruffian
6. FOR THE COSY DAD
If he’s the type who loves nothing more than a cosy night in, and lazy mornings in bed, treat him to something super-cosy, like a new dressing gown, or some soft new slippers, or a cool blanket for snuggling under. We’re sure a tray for lazy meals – be it in front of Netflix, or his morning coffee in bed – will be a hit, too.
Update his old robe for something fresh and new. We love the navy blue piping on this Chambray Robe from John Lewis.
Chambray Robe, £45, JohnLewis.com
Serve breakfast-in-bed in style with a handy bed tray. Also ideal for cheeky TV dinners.

Does he consider himself too manly to own a blanket or throw? He might change his mind with this super-soft cotton fleece blanket with cool skier design. He’ll especially love it if he’s an avid skier who may have had to miss out on the last ski season…
Skiers throw, £69, indigoandrose.co.uk
Last but not least, if he’s a slipper kind of guy (or there’s a strict no-shoes policy in any parts of the home), then treat his feet to some super cosy slippers. The Garrick slippers from Just Sheepskin come in a variety of colours, including navy blue.
Garrick slippers, £70, justsheepskin.com
7. FOR THE SNAP-HAPPY DAD
We all love taking photos with our phones, be it for the ‘gram or just because, but how often do we actually bother printing them out? Not nearly often enough, in our opinion.
Making print-out photos infinitely easier, Polaroid have made a comeback with their cool new Polaroid Now designs, boasting a newly developed autofocus lens system (sharper photos), longer-lasting battery life, and stronger flash.
Add some retro flair with iconic Polaroid style print outs for on the fridge or noticeboard, or, if your parents are still at a distance, you could snap a pic of your fam and send a print-out in the post along with the camera.
Polaroid Now i‑Type Instant Camera, £119.99, polaroid.com

9. FOR THE GADGET-LOVING DAD
Does he have every tool and gadget under the sun? We guarantee he won’t have this; a Bosch cork screw attachment. Designed to slot onto the end of the pocket-sized Bosch IXO screwdriver, just pull the trigger and watch the wine cork whizz-pop out of the bottle. There are other fun attachments to collect too, including a pepper mill and barbeque blower.
Is his phone, tablet or laptop constantly dying? Give him a chic and powerful powerbank for charging on the go. This compact powerstation from Zagg provides an extra 13 extra hours of power to your smartphone per time.

10. FOR THE SWEET TOOTH DAD
If he’s a coffee drinker, chances are his cupboard will already be piled high and over-flowing with options. But many of the dads we know are secret sweet tooths, yet only indulge themselves with a hot chocolate on special occasions. And surely Fathers Day is as good a special occasion as any? Whittard’s luxury hot chocolate hamper comes with two luxury hot chocolates (classic and white), scrummy mini marshmallows and two tall latte glasses. Super for sipping under the stars on chilly summer nights.
