Peace and quiet, a clean car, putting their feet up to watch the game – it’s usually the simple things that please Dads the world over. Another thing Fathers tend to love is their gardens! Perhaps yours is a dab hand with all things horticulture or takes the utmost pride in BBQ hosting? With Father’s Day 2021 quickly approaching (June 20th) gifts for garden lovers may prove the ideal present for the Father figure in your life. But where to begin? Luckily this is where we step in and suggest some useful garden gifts for him. Read on for our 5 thoughtful gifting ideas for Father’s Day 2021.

1. Alfresco Accessories

For many, the garden in the summer isn’t the full experience without serving food and drink alfresco. Whether it’s barbeques or beers, burgers or bubbly, salads or sirloin – whichever is on the menu the magic of entertaining outdoors is the flexibility and fun it delivers. It also tends to be an area many Dads enjoy taking a lead with. So, what better place to start with this Father’s day gift ideas run-down than with a full belly! The Acacia Wood Chopping Board proves to be a fantastic alfresco board to prepare food on, but will also happily double as a serving surface for cheese, fruits, nibbles or select barbequed cuts. The clever asymmetrical design means it stands out from the crowd and offers space for those tasty offerings. Or if it’s a longer serving board that will suit Dad’s summer hosting, there’s always the Acacia Wood Chopping Board Paddle. Both are priced pleasingly and would make superb gifts for garden lovers.

If grilling is his mantra come the summer and he’s rarely found elsewhere but besides the grill, Barbeque accessories are a great idea to think about. Whilst if he is also the lucky owner of a Bramblecrest Firepit Garden Dining Set there’s some exciting add on accessories that are undeniably great garden gifts for him. Introducing the Bramblecrest Firepit Square Griddle, this handy cast iron ridged surface handily clips into Bramblecrest square firepits for some fun alfresco grilling. There’s also the Bramblecrest Rectangle Double Griddle Plate version for rectangle Friepit sets, this is reversible with one side smooth and one ridged, all products are linked in their descriptions. These are fabulous accessories to all gather around and create garden memories.

2. Give the gift of heat!

Garden furniture accessories are excellent Father’s day gift ideas. But with a wide variety to consider, it’s no wonder it can be a headache to figure out exactly what to choose. We think that a gift that can be used year-round will always impress as versatility and function tend to make the cut with Dads. It’s therefore worth considering a Kettler patio heater as a gift. These fantastic warming garden additions can be used for many months of the year, however, we strongly recommend storing them indoors when the weather is particularly wet. We think the tasteful Kettler Universal Electric Lantern 65cm is one of those gifts for garden lovers that will be used from the off, literally becoming part of the furniture in no time. It emits an impressive 1500 watts of heat and has a design resistant to dust and small water particles.

3. Give the gift of comfort

We know how it is, Dads tend to ring-fence their favourite seat in the home and the same can be true in the garden. Perhaps yours has his preferred lounger or corner spot on his garden furniture set. So, why not give the gift of comfort coupled with style?! We think additional garden cushions make ideal gifts for garden lovers, plus patterned and coloured outdoor cushions will add life and verve to any single tone garden furniture. The Bramblecrest Chevron Cocoa Design is a clear frontrunner, stylish yet unfussy. This cushion is also a perfect cosiness addition, helping boost the comfort levels of his favourite seat that little bit more.

4. Practical gifts for a practical Dad

Some Dads will love nothing more than being prepared. This one is ideal for those that always think ahead and truly get the most out of their belongings. They may not seem particularly exciting, but things like Protective Garden Furniture Covers are great garden gifts for him, as what they’re getting is not actually a cover but years of extra life added onto their garden furniture. If he owns any Bramblecrest, Hartman or Kettler garden furniture purchased through Inside Out Living or otherwise, there’s more than likely specific fitting protective covers to go with it. These are extremely durable and not only protect against winter weather but also against garden hazards such as bird droppings and tree debris, making them the perfect gifts for garden lovers.

Going back to BBQing, another option you could consider is BBQ fuel. Once again, it’s not a particularly jazzy concept, but then again practical gifts rarely are. That said, if you’re looking for gifts for garden lovers who also happen to be outdoor cooking enthusiasts, this is a great way of ticking both boxes. We’ve known a bag or two of restaurant-grade charcoal given as a gift to really light a fire in a father’s belly and if you want to make things even more exciting, you can include different kinds of BBQ wood chips as part of the gift. This will allow the recipient to experiment with different flavours for BBQ’d meat, vegetables, and even fruit, so perhaps consider how good a garden chef your dad is before getting him these, as you’ll likely have to give the end result a taste.

5. Team up to give garden relaxation!

The last of our Father’s day gift ideas is a fabulous (if a little extravagant) option for those families with several adult siblings who are willing to team up to get Dad something particularly special; new garden furniture! Larger items don’t need to feel daunting with flexible payment options available meaning bagging some rattan garden furniture on finance is an entirely painless process. Inside Out Living has a 0% finance option on orders over £300 and below £3,000 with flexible timeframes to suit you. With affordable options in garden furniture and the payment options outlined above it opens up a whole world of gifts for garden lovers, not just contained to garden furniture accessories.
