It has a tendency to sneak up on you, so this year we’re giving you plenty of warning: Father’s Day is on Sunday, 18 June. Whether it’s helping the kids find something for their dad or looking for a present for your own dad - men can be very difficult to buy for. While socks are always handy and everyone loves a bottle opener, maybe it’s time to surprise him with something a little different. Matalan would like you to go through the range of Father's Day goodies here, and post links to your favourites on the thread.

Matalan want you to take full advantage of their range of Father’s Day gifts available in store, so why not pay them a visit and see what you can find. If you post photos of your purchases and links to your Matalan gift ideas on this thread, you’ll be entered into a prize draw where one lucky MNer will win a £250 Matalan voucher.

If you can’t get to the store just have a look HERE and post a link to what you think the dad in your life would like, and you’ll also be entered into the prize draw. If you’re a dad yourself, do (PLEASE) share what you’d really like to get from the Matalan range this Father’s Day.

If you need some more inspiration, Matalan have asked some little ones why their dad is special to them - you can watch here!

Matalan also invite you to take part in their Nobody Dads it Better competition to win £1000 worth of holiday vouchers. Just share a video that shows why the dad in your life is so special. To find out more just click here.

Thanks and good luck with the prize draw,

I reckon DH would be very happy with a nice cold beer in this Glass and new pants are always a winner pants

My own D Dad would love Guinness

I think this t-shirt would look good on DH

And my dad - pretty old & predictable (!!) - would probably like these slippers (he usually asks for a new pair at least once a year!

We just do token gifts so id get this chilli sauce bottle for my dad who is a chilli addict:


And one for the cute t shirts/gros for baby DS to wear for his dad plus eggs on toast in bed.

"While socks are always handy and everyone loves a bottle opener, maybe it’s time to surprise him with something a little different."
confused after looking Matalan's range, it seems there isn't much different; the usual socks, mugs and beer related stuff! I know its a commercial event but these stereotypes are awful.

Anyway, I obviously won't win anything but this grow your own chillies set looks the best from choice given, although it doesn't says what's in it - probably better getting seeds from a garden centre.

This wash bag would be perfect for DH as he's away for work at the moment and travels a lot.

We now have an outdoor space and my eldest who is 4 and DH have gone on and on about planting things we have just brought a tomato plant so he would love this for Father's Day.
Thank you for the perfect idea.

This is the perfect gift, he is getting older, but unfortunately his snoring isn't getting any better, kids use ear-plugs when they come to stay!!

I really like the gift pyjamas in a bag sets, particularly these ones in attached image. You can never have too many pairs of pyjamas and these will be great in the warmer weather

I can't get to store so do most of my shopping online and I like browsing the matalan website so I'm glad the website has been included in this smile
