Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect present for your other half, or a dad looking to point your kids in the right direction, there’s something for every type of father figure in our 2019 gift guide.
When is Father’s Day 2019?
Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday of June. This year, it is on Sunday 16 June.

Father’s Day Biscuits from Biscuiteers
Dad’s BBQ Luxe Biscuit Tin, £40 (+£5 for personalisation). Order now at biscuiteers.com.
It’s long been considered that dads and BBQs go together like fish and chips, bread and butter and tea and biscuits. Why not combine the two this Father’s Day with a delicious tin of Biscuiteers biscuits delivered straight to the door.
If BBQs are more of a safety hazard than a summer tradition in your household, the biscuit aficionados at Biscuiteers have a whole collection of hand-iced treats dedicated to dads.
Golf Letterbox Biscuits, £20. Order now at biscuiteers.com.
Matching Mini-me Swimming Trunks from Galago Joe
Personally, we can’t think of anything cuter than a matching father and son outfit. However, these Galago Joe swimming shorts go one step further. Featuring gorilla, rhino and dog prints, each design supports a non-profit animal welfare charity.
Packaged in environmentally friendly boxes, and giving back 10% of profits on every pair sold, the Gorilla design supports The Gorilla Organisation. This is a community-based gorilla conservation charity on a mission to save the gorilla species on the edge of extinction.
Kid’s Navy and Magenta Gorilla Trunks, £35. Buy now from galagojoe.com.
