Gift Ideas For Modern Dads

 I always struggle so much with what to get hubby for Christmas or his birthday from us. If I ask him to write a list he always puts on the usual things – socks, underwear, shirts. It’s all a bit ordinary and boring and I wanted this year to get him a few special things that are a bit more modern, and hopefully a lot more fun than Christmas socks!

So here are my gift ideas for modern dads. There’s a mix of technology and accessories that look cool. Don’t forget to think outside the box a little too – sometimes an experience makes for a really great gift.


Cool trainers are on every modern dad’s want list. I love these Nike Janoski ones £94.95. They are practical and trendy at the same time.

Modern Dads love to film everything to share with their friends, family and on social media. You can’t go wrong with a GoPro Hero 5. £396.91 (with accessories). I know they would have so much fun recording Christmas memories on this!

Remind him of his youth with the coveted Snes Mini. It has a RRP £79.99 but is in high demand. You can find it for £127 on Amazon at the moment. It’s so retro they are bound to love introducing their children to the games they played as a child!

What every modern dad dreams of really is some time off! A city break is a great gift idea. Organise a babysitter and treat him!

Wireless headphones are a must for the modern dad when he’s lounging at home or travelling. No wires for the kids to pull at! Bose® QuietComfort® Noise Cancelling® QC35 II Over-Ear Wireless Bluetooth NFC Headphones With Mic/Remote & Built-in Google Assistant £319.95

    great list of things. My husband is after some headphones and don’t know where to start, so I think I’ll check out the Bose ones 🙂

    I never know what to get my dad! It’s usually socks and Black Magic chocolate but it’d be nice to get him something special this year.

    I did debate about buying my boyfriend a Snes as I thought he’d have loads of fun playing it x
