Funny gifts for dad

by Jade Moscrop |

It's that time again - Father's Day is just around the corner, so it's about time you started thinking about what you're going to treat your pops to this year.

Is it just us, or is there a club that all men join when they become a dad? They get their socks and sandals, their v-neck jumper and, of course, a dad joke book. Totally cringe but also annoyingly funny, a dad's sense of humour is something we hate to love.

If your dad's a particularly humorous chap and you want to get on his good side, go for the funniest gift you can find this year.

Luckily for you, we've done a touch of online window shopping to give you some inspiration.

When is Father's Day 2021?

Father's Day is on Sunday 20 June this year, and given that we're enjoying our newfound sense of freedom, you'll hopefully get to watch his face light up as he opens his gifts.

Here are some of our favourite funny gifts for dad this year:

The history of Father's Day

It's nice to celebrate our dads, so much so that we don't need an excuse. But do you know why we celebrate it?

While Mother's Day is a Christian holiday in the UK, Father's Day actually stems from the US, from a rather sombre affair. The first Father's Day took place in 1908 in West Virginia when a church held a special sermon honouring fathers after 362 men were killed in a mining accident.

In 1909, a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd petitioned to see Father's Day recognised as a national day to honour her father, and all other dads out there, and the Washington state celebrated its first official Father's Day in 1910.

Now, countries across the globe celebrate the day, each with a different date and different traditions. In the UK, it's become popular to buy ties, socks, booze and sentimental keepsakes for our dads, but tbh, we'd pick a funny gift over these any day of the week.
