Whether your Dad is green-fingered, a gadget-lover or simply someone who enjoys a nice meal with their family, we have plenty of ideas to show your appreciation this Father’s Day.
1. Tools for the Perfect BBQ
Modern barbecuing can be so much more advanced than throwing a couple of burgers on the grill and hoping for the best. We have a huge range of accessories, from flavoured wood chips pizza paddles, that help turn al fresco cooking into a real adventure.
One highly recommended essential is the Weber Instant-Read Thermometer, a simple way to guarantee properly cooked meat. Or, if you are pushing the boat out, you can also find an advanced digital grilling thermometer.
Instant Read Thermometer: £16.99
Grilling Thermometer: £39.99
Another option if you are feeling extremely generous is our incredibly popular range of fire pits. Bringing together style and functionality, these give the benefits of a great place to cook and the warmth of an open fire, creating a place to linger even when the evening temperatures drop.
Fire pits: Starting price £185 (Celeste 83cm)

And, with such an extensive range available, you can pick up something to make your Father smile whatever your budget.
