5 Father’s Day Gifts under £20

Fathers’ day is the next main event around the corner this summer, and for those who cannot wait to show their dad how much they mean to them, may benefit from these fun and quirky gift ideas.

While your dad obviously means the world to you, current financial pressures on purse strings may make it a bit more difficult for you to find the best present to show your appreciation of your old man with a small budget.  That is why we have put together some fun must-have pressies all under £20, so even the smallest budgets can afford an immense present.

Portable CD Players

If your dad is really into his music, whether you think it is good or out of date, he may appreciate a portable CD player to be able to listen to his favourite tunes on the move.

This present is a perfect idea for those whose dad enjoys buying CDs and does not load them onto his computer.

Best of all, portable CD players do not cost a great deal either, such as this PROLINE DM2245MP3 PCD BLACK player which costs only £17.99, yet produces a high quality sound.

This particular model is robust enough to take out and about such as on holiday or on a train journey.  It also includes features such as playback and repeat so you can manipulate which songs you want to listen to on a particular CD.

Foot Massager

If your old man is on his feet all day at work and when he gets home feels physically tired and stiff, then he will certainly love a foot massager for father’s day this year.  You may find your mum appreciates it too!

With the right foot massager, all the stresses and worries that come from a hard day at work will float away.  The HOMEDICS FMV-200-EUHOMEDICS DUAL ROLLING FOOT MASSAGER is only £15.31, making it well under your £20 budget.

This model is compact and neat so it need not get in the way but stored easily when not in use.  It is designed with toe touch controls so you do not even need to stretch over to get the right setting.  It also comes with a two year guarantee and you can choice to purchase it in red, blue, pink or green.

Beard and Facial Hair Clipper

This may seem like an odd present to give your dad for father’s day, but it is the sort of thing any dad would appreciate.  Any tool that makes it easier to tackle the daily chore of shaving or maintaining facial hair will be valued.

This WAHL 9655-017WAHL CORD/CORDLESS CLIPPER for example is a quality clipper that can tackle almost any type of facial hair whether on sensitive or tough skin.  It comes with stainless steel cutting blades, nine cutting lengths, 10 attachment combs and can be used with power from the mains or with batteries making it suitable to take on holiday.  This model costs £19.99.

Or for something a little different, yet still incredibly useful, the REMINGTON NE3350HYGENIC TRIMMER can tackle all your dad’s stray hairs.  This grooming tool has two interchangeable heads and attachment combs to reach unruly eyebrows, nose and ear hair.  It can also be used both wet and dry and comes in at only £9.99.

Apple iPad Case

If your dad is into his gadgets and already owns an Apple iPad, with which he takes a lot of care over it, he will certainly be grateful when presented with an Apple iPad Case this father’s day.

The APPLE IPAD CASE comes in just under budget at £19.99, but will keep your dad’s treasured item safe from damages caused from everyday use.  This case is study and reliable so whether you want to prevent scratches to an iPad when keeping it in your bag, or simply use it as a suitable storage option, your iPad will be in safe hands.

Alternatively, the DEXIM DLA141 WH V2PROTECTIONS CASE for iPads is another good make that does the job just as well, but costs only £7.49.  It comes in white or black.  This acts more like a sleeve for an iPad, protecting the device not only from scratches but also from dust.

Grill Machines

Whether your dad is a keen and promising chef, or someone who already shows talent and experience in the kitchen, a grill machine could be a great gift to widen his recipe horizons.

The GEORGE FOREMAN 17894LEAN MEAN FAT REDUCING GRILLING MACHINE  has a grilling capacity of 245 cm2 and can grill up to two chicken or burger breasts at one time.  This machine is a good cooking application for dads who live on their own or who are looking to reduce their cholesterol as grilling can reduce the fat content in meals than when frying or roasting meat.

This model is designed so the groves slope downwards, getting rid of excess fat or oils so the meat does not absorb them.  The device costs £17.99.
