When’s Father’s Day again? You may be asking yourself. It’s Sunday the 19th of June. Hopefully, you’ve found this guide just in time to avoid you breaking out into a cold sweat of idea panic. It’s that time of year to reward dad for his hard work, after all, he deserves some credit for keeping you alive, being a personal taxi, and turning a blind eye when you sneak back in at 3 am all those years ago. And we can’t forget those honorary dads- grandfathers, brothers, husbands, and friends, they deserve to be shown love too.
We know dads are hard to shop for, they don’t curate a wish list as mums do and they never seem to want anything. But don’t worry, we at Mad4Tools are here to help take the stress out of finding a way to say, ‘thanks dad, love you.’
Below is our simple gift guide, which will suit all budgets and all types of dads, even the fussy ones:

Starting off with a belter of an idea, who doesn’t want one of these comfy hoodies, and as a plus, you can always steal it off him later.
