“A Man’s Home Is His Castle” goes the old saying and for some Fathers, there’s no place of greater importance than his sanctuary from the daily grind. With Father’s Day 2021 approaching, we’ve assembled a rundown of handy home décor gift ideas for him that are perfect for those who enjoy their home comforts. Read on for our 5 best ideas…
1. Feet Up – they’ve earned it
Father’s day gift ideas are never easy to think up, for some reason gifts for Mums come to mind a lot quicker. This is where we step in to suggest some Dad-approved ideas. For those Fathers always on the go with not a moment to spare, the time spent at home are precious moments of calm. Sticking his favourite sport or programme on the TV or getting dibs on the stereo might be at the top of the list for unwinding at home. So, what gift could be better than a companion to aid the feet up moments? A comfy and easy to style leg supporting pouffe may be just the ticket!
We think this unobtrusive Charcoal Chevron Pouffe will be Dad-approved, doubling up for any other family member when Dad’s not splayed out supping on a cold beer. In fact, pouffes generally make great house warming/home décor gifts.
2. Cater to the Kitchen master of the home
For those Fathers with a culinary flair, the kitchen will be his realm. Mean treats and hearty feasts may be his trademark contribution to the family household and any lucky guests. If this is the case then dining accessories and tableware are really great gift ideas for him.
If seafood is his thing then an Oyster Set complete with shucker and Oyster forks (all perfectly gift-boxed) will be a great addition to serving the shellfish delicacy. On the other hand, if mussels are preferred to oysters, themed Mussel Tweezers are a wonderful mini gift for eating moules! And for the dad who enjoys a leisurely breakfast, a Wooden Soldiers Egg Holder might be an ideal gift idea for him.
3. Get the man cave in order
Perhaps your Father figure has one of those distinct and sacred areas allotted to Dad-only – aka a man cave! This room will require all the right components such as man cave furniture, tech, and storage.
For the latter, we think there are some great storage options for home décor gift ideas. Just with InsideOut Living, for example, there’s the Cabin Log Carrier Basket for an authentic log cabin vibe, perfect for actual logs to stock his wood burner or to use as storage for books, bits or beers! Alternatively, there’s also more space to use with the Rustica Round Baskets in Grey, delightfully two-tone and on-trend.
If you have a slightly higher budget, media units are also a great choice of man cave furniture. These are available in a number of styles, from hardy wooden units with a more traditional aesthetic, to metal frame designs with a more stripped back, industrial feel.
4. Team up for Dad comfort
Our penultimate idea is one for those with adult siblings that are unsure of what to get. If you’re all struggling to figure out Father’s day gift ideas why not team up and get your Dad a comfortable chair? After all, every Dad should have their favourite cosy chair! It’s one of those home décor gift ideas that, if selected, will be enjoyed for years and years – a true present to savour.
Also available in vintage black, we tend to think the Leather Armchair in Antique Brown (featured in the image at the top of the page) is a particular Dad-friendly seat – spongey, stylish and would slide into many a home or man cave! Also, bigger items don’t need to be daunting with flexible payment options available meaning bagging some home décor gifts like furniture on finance is an entirely painless process. InsideOut Living has a 0% finance option on orders over £300 and below £3,000 with flexible timeframes to suit you.
5. Team up for Conservatory Furniture
An extension of the last point; why not help Dad deck out the conservatory with any siblings that are yet undecided? Everyone loves a team-up and our easy to use finance options are sure to help with the purchase. There’s an impressive array of Conservatory Furniture to peruse on IO Living, but we think Lounger Sets and Recliners would both make particularly superb gift ideas for him. Not only are they practical, they’re also versatile and can be easily brought outdoors when the sun is shining thanks to their lightweight construction.
Speaking of using furniture outdoors, if you think your dad would enjoy an outdoor gift as much as an indoor one, check out these 5 thoughtful gifts for garden lovers.
That brings our recommendations for home décor gift ideas to a finish. We’re sure that whatever Father’s day gift you choose, your Dad will be made to feel special this year! Just make sure you get him something as “don’t get me anything” doesn’t actually mean what you think it does.
