With Father's Day just around the corner (Sunday 19 June), make sure you're the favourite child by getting your old man something special. After all, you made all that effort on Mother's Day not long ago. 

Whether your dad is music mad, a film fanatic or a dapper Dan, we've scoured the shops to ensure there's something for everyone - and for all budgets (depending on how generous you are feeling).

Check out our gallery below.

Happy hunting!

 

  • Suck-up

    If you're after a loan from BOMAD (the bank of mum and dad), this mug should butter him up in no time. Or, of course, if he's simply the best.

    £19.95, Emma Bridgewater

  • Punked

    If you're feeling generous, this Bella Freud knit will make him the talk of the fashion town - and help him re-live those glory years.

    £270, Bella Freud

  • Final cut

    These beautiful ivory and nickel shaving tools are a welcome addition to any gentleman's bathroom. A wet shave is said to be the best for that clean-cut finish, too. 

    £57.60, The English Shaving Company 

  • Play mate

    What better way to celebrate Father's Day than with some friendly competition? These lawn boules will provide endless hours of fun. 

    £20, John Lewis

  • Taste the paste

    For a hair styling product that's bound to impress, Bumble and Bumble's Sumotech is the way forward. Not only does it style hair in a way that looks natural, it's shine and grease free. Also, it smells divine. 

    £22, Bumble & Bumble

  • Chocca block

    What's the point in giving a gift you can't enjoy, as well? These sea salt caramel milk chocolate ganaches are dipped in dark chocolate and then dusted in cocoa powder - and if that doesn't make your mouth water, we don't know what will. 

    £13.50, Rococo Chocolates

  • All spice

    For the man who has everything, a candle is always a welcome treat. Jo Malone's classic Pomegranate Noir scent is spicy and rich with woody undertones that are far from the floral femininity of others. 

    £42, Jo Malone

  • Daddy cool

    You can't go wrong with a pair of classic sunglasses. Ray Ban's new style is inspired by the classic Aviator, without looking too much like they need to be paired with a sheepskin flying jacket. Automatic cool points. 

    £143, Ray Ban

  • Wind-up merchant

    If your dad's not the sentimental type, this Ladybird book is a great fun gift that will have him laughing all the way to the Ferrari shop. Also, you can get him back from embarrassing you in front of all your boyfriends... 

    £3.49, Amazon

  • Who's the daddy?

    Just in case he's not sure of his role, this sweatshirt will serve as a useful reminder. 

    £45, The Fmly Store

  • Sock him one

    If in doubt, by him socks. These Folk ones are interesting enough to be special, but classic enough for every day wear. Win win. 

    £15, Folk

  • The world's your Oyster

    If your old man is one of the many Londoners who accidentally swipes his contact-less debit card as well as his Oyster, put an end to the confusion with this chic Oyster card holder. You can even win extra brownie points and get it monogrammed. 

    £65, Aspinal of London

  • For the jet-setter

    Whether he be a keen cyclist or simply someone in desperate need of a wash bag that isn't covered in toothpaste and beard clippings, this Paul Smith number will be a welcome gift. 

    With a waterproof interior and embossed leather patches, he'll also look first class - even if he's travelling economy. 

    £145, Paul Smith  

  • Garden state

    You can never go wrong with a planted gift. Terrariums are all the rage at the moment and will provide your home with an injection of nature and creativity. Hang this one from the ceiling but be sure to watch your head...

    £25, Urban Outfitters

  • Juice station

    A great gift for the health-conscious sporty dad, Botanic Lab's raw juices all have delicious flavours and health-giving properties. This charcoal one is ideal for a post-work out injection of nutrients to rebalance the body. Charcoal is the trendiest of ingredients, too, didn't you hear?

    From £60 for a box of 8, Botanic Lab

  • Brace yourself

    Ideal for either a traditional father or a trendy pops, these braces are a simple addition to add spark to any outfit. 

    £30, Ben Sherman

  • Muddy mister

    Whether he's festival mad or green-fingered, these Hunter wellies are a must. Plus, perhaps you'll encourage him to get some festival tickets for you as a thanks. Here's hoping...

    £90, Hunter

  • Scent-sational

    This cologne has a clean and rich smell, perfect for a classy gent. The leathery undertones make it unmissable - in just the right way.

    £85, Liberty

  • Drinking buddies

    What better way to celebrate dad than with a bit of his favourite tipple? Jägermeister Spice is a new mix of flavours that make this classic smooth and warm. Enjoy it with him at one of several Jäegrhaus pop-ups this summer. 

    £18, Tesco 

  • Wash away

    Give your dad the gift of youth, with this skin fuel trio. When used together, this cleanser, moisturiser and shave cream will leave him looking like the boss he is. 

    £53.50, Kiehls

  • Quality time

    Versatile, unpretentious and Scandi-chic, this watch is an ideal gift, whatever his style. 

    £85, Nixon

  • Hold the phone

    Why should women have all the fun when it comes to phone cases? This one also comes in handy when you're trying to pace yourself - nobody will suspect you're not really drinking.

    £51.01, Farfetch

  • Bed rest

    Another fail-safe gift, pyjamas are garanteed to go down a treat. These classic ticking M&S ones will provide him with a perfect excuse to relax in front of the telly.

    £27.50, Marks and Spencer

  • Photo ready

    Print out all your entire family album with the Polaroid wireless printer. Or, buy it for yourself and make him a miniature album. Pics print about the size of a credit card, so they're also ideal for wallet snaps.

    £109.95, Apple

  • Rock n roll

    Cufflinks don't have to be boring. These Alexander McQueen ones provide a subtle injection of rock 'n' roll, turning that work suit into something speical. 

    £95, Mr Porter

  • White stripes

    Lure him away from the lurid novelty ties he insists on wearing to every wedding, and give him this knitted number.

    £12, Topman

  • Stink bomb

    Give him a gentle hint with these citrus drops from Aesop. Just pop a few drops into the loo after the deed is done and it's as if nobody was ever there. Perhaps buy alongside a bunch of flowers, so he's not too offended.

    £20, Aesop

  • A beautiful mind

    Whether he's into measuring or design or even has an arty side is besides the point, this brass set will make for a beautiful gift.

    £80, Selfridges 

  • Acting sheepish

    Some things in life are a must, and a pair of snuggly slippers is one of them. These Cornish-made mules have hard soles, so he can even wear them to the corner shop if he so wishes (although the fashion police would rather he didn't.)

    £50, Celtic & co

  • Fire it up

    The Amazon fire stick is every telly addicts dream. Just plug it in and your old TV becomes smart - allowing you to enjoy the delights of streaming from your couch. Think Netflix, iPlayer, YouTube, apps and, of course, Amazon Prime.

    £34.99, Amazon

  • Box out

    What better gift than the gift of sound? This Sony wireless speaker packs a real punch into such a small body, you'll want to carry it around with you everywhere. Great for the morning's Today programme, or a Sunday morning Magic session. 

    £49, Argos

  • Dapper dad

    Ah, paisley, the pattern of dads worldwide. This Etro pocket square is the best kind of paisley- because it's three paisleys all in one - your old man can either pick which colour he'd like to display to match his suit, or if he's more daring, go for all three at once. 

    £76, Mr Porter

  • Film fan

    For the cinephiles dads, a film poster is an easy one. This Taxi Driver poster comes framed and with an iconic de Niro quote. Goodbye bland walls.

    £19.99, All posters

  • Wax lyrical

    If your dad was the original hipster, help him keep his lip caterpillar in check with this moustache wax. 

    £15, Murdock London

  • Pack your bags

    Classic the world over, the Kanken backpack comes in a range of poppy colours and is light as a feature, allowing you to carry all your worldly possessions with ease.

    £65, Kanken
