There’s nothing quite like a bespoke gift to show dad that you really care, and we’ve got some great ideas to help you create the perfect present. Whether your dad’s a well-groomed guy, an automobile addict or green-fingered gardener, it’s easy to make him something special. Check out our DIY gift ideas below for some inspiration:
If the real love of your dad’s life is his car, he’ll certainly appreciate a bucket full of car cleaning products! In ours we’ve included Wilko Glass Cleaner, Wilko Wash & Wax Car Shampoo, Wilko Jumbo Car Sponge, Wilko Demister Pad, Wilko Screenwash, Turtle Wax, Triplewax Car Shampoo and Simoniz Tyre Shine. Everything he needs to make his car sparkle.
Just be warned… he may also expect you to get out there and wash his car for him!
If your old man’s into sheds and beds, seeders and weeders, why not create a great gardening gift? Simply take one of our decorative crates, or even a planter, and fill it with garden goodies. In ours, we’ve used a Wilko Pruner, Wilko Gardening Gloves, Wilko Granular Lawn Feed, Weed & Mosskiller and a Wilko Hand Trowel, with a Wilko Watering Can and Gro-Sure Easy Flowers Plant Feed. To finish it off, we added Carrot Seeds, Lettuce Seeds and Cucumber Seeds – all perfect for growing at this time of year. What’s more, all our seeds are on an excellent 3 for 2 offer!
If your dad’s always first in the bathroom queue (and the longest in there!) you’ve probably got a well-groomed father who likes to look fabulous. Why not make his day with one of our funky baths, full of top toiletries? We’ve filled ours with a Gillette Proglide Power Razor, Wilko Face Wash, Wilko Shave Gel, Davidoff Cool Water After Shave, Brylcreem Gel, Nivea Men Night Regenerator (as he’s not getting any younger!) and L’Oreal Hydra Energetic Moisturiser.
Create cash-saving coupons
If you’re strapped for cash, or have just left it too late to get your dad a gift, why not make him a voucher? Make it fun by including a few terms and conditions, and even an expiry date. It could be a coupon for a free car wash, washing dishes for the week, making him dinner or just a day of granting his every request. Another cuppa please!
A Father’s Day card that he’ll never discard!
Your dad will love a hand-made card to go with his personalised gift, and we’ve got everything you need. Check out our arts and crafts section, where you’ll find card, glue, scissors, tape and embellishments.
