I’m really lucky that my dad is fairly easy to shop for, but in case you need a little bit of help, here’s my comprehensive guide to buying for Disney dads!
The Arty Dad
Whether its for his man-cave, office or anywhere else in the house, get him something he can appreciate every day! I love the range of Star Wars Retro Travel posters from Teacup Pirahna on Etsy; you can pick one, or buy a selection set, but starting from just £4.50 they’re great value for money! B&Q has a great range of artwork and canvases with Marvel themes, like this Marvel comic montage for just £12. Then, of course, there’s Disney Store, which has a great selection like Lightning McQueen for £15, Jiminy Crickett for £20 and World of Disney Up print for £70.
The Fashion Dad
This is my go-to; I get my dad a t-shirt pretty much every year! And I usually count on Redbubble because there is such a huge range of designs and styles, as well as the option to choose colours etc. I especially love cross-over designs, like this Mickey Mouse/Breaking Bad Walter White shirt! If you’re looking to splurge, this Luke Skywalker watch from Disney Store is perfect for the geeky dad, or if the shoe fits, there’s this Grumpy t-shirt! Let Dad unleash his inner big kid with the Buzz Lightyear wallet from Hot Topic, or the more subtle Mickey messenger bag from Truffle Shuffle!
The Techie Dad
Computer savvy dads will love the new range of USB memory sticks from Disney store, like this Boba Fett one, or add a bit of Vader to his iPhone with this 3D case! For gamer dads, there’s the Marvel Disney Infinity Starter Pack, available for Playstations and Xbox, or for the music lover there’s a great range of Disney inspired headphones on eBay.
The Collector Dad
Every dad has something, right? Vinyl Pop is sweeping the world, and with Disney, Marvel and Star Wars collections, there’s something for everyone! The Disney Store has a great range of pins for dads who love trading, and also this adorable messenger Mickey, and for Lego-lovers, there’s a load of Marvel sets out there!
The Foodie Dad
Chef dads or just dads who love to eat? Covered! Get fully kitchen prepped with this Mickey Mouse apron, Lightsaber barbecue tongs or Disneyland utensil sets, or just sit back with a cuppa in an Iron Man mug and a regal boiled egg in this Arthur egg cup, or for wine-loving dads, how about this bottle stopper?
With Father’s Day creeping up, you better get shopping!
