Father’s Day Gift Guide

Every dad falls into a typical dad stereotype. To help celebrate Fathers Day on Sunday the 17th of June we’ve brought together some Fathers Day Gift recommendations based on a few typical dad stereotypes we’ve seen over the years.


The Practical Dad


Dads are practical people, spending plenty of time tinkering in the shed or the garage or fixing things around the house.  What better gift for a practical dad on Father’s Day than a solid set of overalls, some compatible kneepads and that Father’s Day gift favourite, socks!

The Redhawk Overall is an extremely practical product, complete with numerous pockets for tools and essentials. An elasticated back and zip front make it highly practical to get in and out of.

Combine the Redhawk Overall with a pair of Dickies Knee Pads for ultimate comfort. These knee pads are lightweight and tough and can be combined with any Dickies Knee Pad Overalls or Knee Pad Trousers.

One of the most popular gifts on Fathers Day is socks. Cheap and always in need of, it’s safe to say any dad would expect a pair of socks on Fathers Day. The Dickies Cushion Crew Socks are perfect for the job, with a reinforced heel and toe and half cushioned sole. Whats more you get 5 in a pack so that’s a new pair for each day of the week at work.
