10 Father’s Day gift ideas for under £10

With Father's Day coming up, we know how hard it is to find an awesome gift on a student budget. Luckily, all these are under a tenner!

Father's Day gift ideas

This year, Father's Day is on Sunday 17th June. Have you sourced a gift for your old man yet?

We know buying something cheap but super impressive isn't the easiest thing to do (particularly during exam period – you're so selfish, Dads!).

The superhero team at Save the Student are here to rescue, with a list of ten top gift ideas for Father's Day - all for under a tenner!

10 cheap Father's Day gift ideas

  1. Brewdog glass and beer

    Brewdog glass and beer

    Cost: £8 (+ £2 Click & Collect)

    Craft beer sets can be pretty expensive, so this bottle and glass from Debenhams is a real bargain. It's one of those great gifts that looks like it cost more than it did.

    Plus, you can pick it up from your nearest store, saving you from forking out for postage.

  2. Liquorice pipes

    Liquorice Pipes

    Cost: £5 (+ £2 Click & Collect)

    Sweets are a Father's Day staple, but a box of Wine Gums is a bit cliché. These quirky liquorice pipes are a little bit different, and will be loads of fun to mess about with on the day.

    Again, save money by picking them up from your nearest John Lewis or Waitrose (or get them delivered for £3.50).

    Cost: £8 (+ £3.99 delivery)

    Yes, we get it, a mug is about the most predictable Father's Day present you can get.

    But if you go for one with a funny message, it's got a little bit more sparkle than your typical 'Best Dad'.

    This one is sure to bring some laughs on Father's Day morning and will act as a constant reminder of, well, just how awesome you are!
