Father’s Day has become a huge spending event in the UK – in 2019 alone, we spent a whopping £653 million on gifts and cards for our dads. Clearly, a hastily written ‘I owe you one car wash’ voucher just won’t cut it any more!
To help you out, we’ve scouted out the minefield of Fathers Day gifts, so you don’t accidentally walk into gifting disaster. Without further ado, here are the five worst Father’s Day gifts we could find:
1. Sandal socks
At first glance, this may look like a present that’s guaranteed to bring a few laughs. But you’ll soon realise your mistake when your old man starts actually wearing these things to social events. Don’t give him the chance!
2. Toilet mug
One of two things is going to happen if you buy this monstrosity. 1: Your dad will hate it and his coffee will be ruined forever. 2: he’ll think it’s hilarious and insist on using it at all times, ruining coffee for you forever. Coffee deserves better, and so does your dad.
3. BBQ cologne
This bizarre cologne claims to be ‘an intoxicating bouquet of spices, smoke, meat and sweet summer sweat’. If you’re tempted by this one, then we can only wonder what your dad has done to deserve it!
4. Beer belly bum bag
I bet you thought bum bags were the ultimate fashion disaster. Well, think again! This horrifying accessory throws a lifelike image of a hairy gut into the mix, as though bum bags weren’t terrifying enough. We can only recommend buying this for your dad if you want to give yourself nightmares.
5. Wig visor
If your dad is follicly challenged, you might want to help him out by grabbing this all-in-one visor and wig! Why not bundle it with some framed pictures of his long-lost locks to really rub salt in the wound?
