Father’s Day is fast approaching, but don’t worry, St George’s Shopping Centre has got you covered when it comes to gifts to make this Father’s Day special.
Whether you’re on a budget or want to splash out to show your appreciation for the special man in your life, there’s something for every father and grandfather.
There’s no doubt dads are the most difficult to buy for, so we’ve put together a gift guide to ensure you’re inspired and fully prepared for the big day.
Say it with a card
The first thing on your Father’s Day check list is no doubt a card, and Clintons has a huge variety starting at just £1. Whether he’s the type for soppy versus, or prefers a novelty card to make him laugh, you’ll find a card to bring a smile to any face.
The store also stocks an array of gifts designed just for his special day. If you’re looking to show your dad an extra cute token of appreciation, this Me to You teddy bear can be picked up for just £8.99.
It’s also worth taking a trip to WHSmith if you’re looking for a card – like Clintons there are many to choose from. The shop also has a big variety of gift cards, so if you’re really stuck for something to get him, a fail-safe gift card for his favourite shop is bound to be a pleaser.
The entertainment lover
If you’re looking for a simple winner, then HMV can help. Find me a dad who doesn’t love an action movie. Two DVDs can be picked up for just £20, while you can purchase two Blue-rays for £25 for the more tech-savvy fathers. These deals also include the latest releases, so you’re bound to introduce him to a new favourite.
If he’s more of a music lover and you’re on a budget, head to the CD section to discover the albums for two of his favourite artists for £15.
Game has a plethora of gifts to choose from too, especially if your dad is into gaming. There’s a big selection of games for PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo to help him relax at the weekend. If he’s already got all he needs, then a console accessory will help liven up his gaming experience.
The fashionable father
Even the most fashion-forward fathers need a pair of comfortable shoes. Whether he prefers block colour or you want to mix up his style with a patterned design, Footasylum offers this season’s most fashionable trainers. Students get 10 per cent off too.
Style them with some new socks from River Island, where these designs are a steal at three pairs for £7.
If he means the world to you, and you want to spend that little bit extra to show your appreciation for all he does, then a watch is the ideal gift. It’s something he will treasure for a long time too.
Ernest Jones has a huge selection of watches from many different brands. Imagine your dad’s face when he unwraps a shiny, new watch.
Make your dad feel appreciated this June. Visit St George’s and pick up something he’ll love this Father’s Day.
