Dads can be hard to buy for, and with Father’s Day coming up this Sunday some of us are panicking when it comes to what they’re actually going to enjoy.
One gift idea that often goes down a treat is a subscription – the gift that keeps on giving.
It takes the pressure off of picking the perfect gift and it means the special man in your life can get something new each month.
The question then is what subscription do you even get him?
Well don’t worry, we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting subscriptions to make your search that much easier.
Boxers – ON THAT ASS
Yes, you read that right – we’re talking underwear.
For just £9.99 a month, the special man in your life can be the proud owner of some of the coolest boxers on the market.
There are two options for men – Originals (interesting prints) or One (block colours) – which you have the choice of when you sign up for the subscription.
I’m of the stance that you might as well opt for Originals, with the unique prints making it a more interesting surprise with each month.
Once you’ve picked your package, you have to pick out a size – if you don’t know what size boxer short the special man in your life is, asking is usually the easiest way to go about it.
Then you get to pick between nine different prints, and make an account.
It’s super simple and when the shorts arrive it’s something he will definitely use at least.
Socks – Sock Geeks
Ah yes, socks. The age old presents that dads are supposed to roll their eyes at.
They can be quite boring depending on where you’re getting them from, but at Sock Geeks they’re more personal than that.
You have to take a quiz for this subscription, which picks out specific socks to suit the person.
After you’ve said it’s for someone else it asks you how old they are, what their name is and questions like ‘Imagine Dad’s personality was an animal. Which of these six would they be?’ and picking out which cat reminds you most of him.
You then choose between 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions, with them starting at £23.50.
Gadgets – Gadget Discovery Club
A lot of subscriptions give you the option of a quiz to get the perfect box for your loved one.
With the Gadget Discovery Club, you pick out if you want it to ship now or later, to which country and then pick the best description of how tech savvy the man in your life is.
There are then three subscription options, with the price of the box changing based on how many months you want to subscribe for.
The three month subscription will set you back £32.99 a month and includes one ‘Epic gadget’.
You can sign up for this subscription here.
Cheese – Sharpham Cheese Subscription
Cheeseboards are a classic that makes everyone feel that little bit fancier – I don’t even eat cheese and find myself trying to recreate a dairy-free option quite often.
So this one is sure to go down an absolute treat – the next box isn’t due until July but you can let your dad know in his card that his gift is on the way!
For £30 (and an additional cost for postage and packaging) you get three of Sharpham’s handmade cheese varieties, a local guest cheese, Peter’s Yard Sourdough crackers and a new Sharpham chutney.
Not only that but they also include tasting and pairing notes, so Dad can have a very nice cheeseboard experience.
To order your dad this subscription, you can get it here.
