Fathers Day Gift Guide 2020

(Ad Gifted) Some of these products have been gifted for review

It’s coming up to that time of the year again, Father’s Day. With how 2020 has been going with the coronavirus pandemic, if you don’t live with your dad and only go to visit like me, then you will probably not be going to see him this fathers day. I know that I won’t be able to myself.

So if you can’t see your dad this father’s day, then make it extra special and get something delivered to him that he will enjoy. Have a look at the range of gift ideas in this gift guide and see if anything jumps out to you.

For the Foodie dad, he needs something special for the kitchen, not just the standard presents, but something from a company that has history and is a trusted brand. Tala is one of the oldest kitchenware brands, they make everything from spatulas to cake times and so much more.

The Tala Cake Decorating Turntable and Set of Spatulas is perfect. The turntable is perfect to decorate cakes with. The spatulas will also help with that decorating.

The set of 3 spatulas is currently out of stock, but these do come in stock often. The prices on the Tala website are cheaper than Amazon, so get some fantastic cooking pieces.

Who doesn’t love peanut butter? Well, now peanut butter has got seriously better. How? Well, Whole Earth has an awesome Chocolate Peanut Butter, this is perfect in a sandwich, or my favourite, chocolate peanut butter cookies. OMG, this is the best.

If you’ve not heard of Whole Earth, let me tell you a little about them. Whole Earth is the UK’s number one peanut butter brand. They are gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans!!! You can buy Whole Earth Peanut Butter in the supermarkets and Amazon.

I will be making some recipes with this, so keep an eye out for them.

Spitfire Amber Ale and Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale

There are so many dad’s who like real ale. It is always a nice Father’s Day treat to get them a bottle. Well what you may not have thought about is instead of getting them a bottle, why not one of these:

Spitfire Amber Ale and Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale are made by the Shepherd Neame, which is the oldest brewery in the UK. They make a huge range of ales, ciders and wines. These can be purchased directly from their website.

Nims Fruit Crisps

If you’re looking for something a little different, then why not think about some snacks. Why not think about something that isn’t too out there, but is different that your dad will notice.

Nim's Fruit Crisps and Nim's Veg Crisps

If you’re wondering what Nim’s Crips are, they are crisps. However, what makes these so different from regular crisps, is that there is only 1 ingredient in the crisps, that is the fruit or vegetable. What makes these crisps different, well that is simple, Nim’s is the first air-dried crisps.

Because they are air-dried, that means that they are so much healthier, each pack contains between 36 – 78 calories. Oh, and Nim’s have just won The Queens Award for Enterprise: Innovation. If you want to get some of these for father’s day, they are available on Amazon, there are a number of flavours to choose from as well.

These are also part of the Produced in Kent.

Woodchurch Wine Estate

Now if you like a little bit of fizzy and you have a dad that likes bubbles, instead of going for the prosecco, have a look at what us Brits can produce. Woodchurch Wine Estate is based in Kent and produced some fantastic still and sparkling wines.

Woodchurch Classic Cuvee

Woodchurch Classic Cuvee is wonderful, it has a light golden colour, with an almond and honey hint on the nose. It has a fresh fruit taste of strawberries, pear, peach and a citrus finish. This is perfect for the summer. You can buy the wines directly from their website.

These are also part of the Produced in Kent.


For the dads that want to keep up with a summer body or wanting to get healthier, Purition offers a meal replacement which is absolutely perfect for breakfast of lunch.

These are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Bonne Maman Cherry Compote

The Bonne Maman Cherry Compote can be got from most supermarkets and also from Amazon. Instead of the traditional gift, why not treat you, Father, to some extra special that you’ve baked for him.

Roberts Bakery Home Baking Kits

If your dad is a dab hand in the kitchen, then why not get him something that he can create at home. Home baking has always been huge, however, since the Coronavirus, cooking and baking at home has gone nuts. There has been a massive surge in popularity since we have had to spend more time indoors. If you have noticed that some supermarkets have run out of certain key items, it can make cooking and baking at home so much harder.

Roberts Bakery - Home Baking Kit

The Home Baking Kits have everything you need apart from the water and oil. These kits are vegan friendly. The 1kg kit will make plenty.

Each 1kg kit makes a large white loaf and 12 white bread rolls, a large white loaf and four pizza bases or a large white loaf, six white rolls and two pizza bases. Also, if you don’t want to make all of that at once, then you can use what you need, once opened, each kit will last for up to three months, you should use it up by then.

Anno Gins

If you’re wondering what Anno Gins are, well this is surely something a little bit special for dad this Father’s Day. Anno Distillery was set up back in 2011 by Dr Andy Reason and Dr Norman Lewis, who were both scientists, They left their jobs, set up Kent’s first Gin Distillery and have been making some fantastic drinks since.

Anno Distillers - Fruity Miniature Gift Set

Now, this is where it gets interesting. Anno Distillery has some fantastic miniature gift sets. The one that I have is the Fruity Minature Gift Set.

This set contains a selection of handcrafted spirits including 5cl bottles of Anno B3rry Pink Gin, Anno Orange and Honey Gin and Anno Elderflower and Vodka. Also included was a handy booklet which gives you some advice about the drinks, as well as cocktail ideas. I have to say that the B3rry gin is out of this world and certainly a true favourite. If you’re not sure what to get your dad for father’s day, take a look at this. The gin can be bought directly from there website or amazon.

These are also part of the Produced in Kent.

Lost Sheep Coffee

Now, who doesn’t love coffee? I’m sure most dads like a good cup of coffee in the mornings. If your dad is a coffee connoisseur, you may want to treat him to something a little bit different. Lost Sheep Coffee which was founded back in 2011 by Stuart and Sarah, after there adventure backpacking.

Lost Sheep Coffee has brought a different type of coffee to the UK, it has brought Aussie coffee to us. You may be thinking that coffee is from other countries, but this is something very different.

Lost Sheep Coffee Pods and Whole Bean

Now, this is where things get interesting. Lost Sheep Coffee has created a couple of different ways for you to enjoy your coffee. The first is fresh ground, enjoyed in a coffee machine or cafetiere. The hand roasted coffee called “Get in the Hopper”, this is whole bean coffee that is wonderful in flavour, it has a smoothy and chocolaty type taste, a great way to start the day. The second way is by Capsules which are compatible with Nespresso machines. This is just to be able to have these little wonderful coffee’s while at home or work.

One of the things that I really like about Lost Sheep Coffee is that ALL of their packagings is fully recyclable and the company is certified carbon neutral. So now only are you getting top quality coffee, you are doing all carbon neutral, what better way to enjoy that coffee? I’m sure all dads will enjoy. You can order directly from their website.

These are also part of the Produced in Kent.

Charlie Bighams Meals

Every dad deserves a treat for father’s day. If you’re not the best cook or can’t cook, then Charlie Bigham’s meals are just what is needed. You can serve a delicious meal that I’m sure your dad is going to enjoy.

Charlie Bighams Meals

There are a number of options available in the range from pies, to curry to paella to pasta dishes and more. These meals are available in Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsburys, I will be honest and say that Waitrose have the best selection out of all the 3 stores, Tesco and Sainsburys only have a limited amount of the meals. In addition to the main meals, there are some delicious puddings including classics such as bread and butter pudding and chocolate fondant.

Instead of just a gift, give your dad a gift that he will truly enjoy with Charlie Bigham’s meals.
