Father’s Day is on Sunday 19th June and is a great reason to buy a gift for a loved one, whether that be your Dad, Grandad, Uncle or close friend. At Tates we have a wide selection of gifts. Here are a few of my favourites……

Le Creuset kitchenware

Le Creuset make timeless pieces of kitchenware in eye catching colours and are sure to brighten up any kitchen counter. We sell a large range of Le Creuset products and currently have two great value offers in store. Salt and pepper mills are priced at 2 for £45 and stoneware mugs are 3 for the price of 2 (or from £15 each). Mix and match between the colours to make a really attractive gift.

T&G woodware

T&G make beautiful chopping boards in many different woods including beech, acacia and hevea, all from sustainable forests and plantations. Sure to be a hit with the chef of the household, we stock chopping boards in a wide range of shapes and sizes to suit all budgets and kitchens. (Prices from £9.99.)

Joseph Joseph

Joseph Joseph are a very cool homeware brand that sell beautifully designed, useful items for the home. I love their water bottles and travel mugs, sure to make Dad the most stylish of commuters! (The 340ml travel mug costs £12 and the 500ml water bottle costs £25.)

Houseplants not only make a really attractive addition to any home, they are good for us too as they purify our air, improving our indoor climate. In my opinion, you can never have too many houseplants and we have a huge range at Tates. If you need help, ask one of our friendly team who will be happy to help you pick the perfect one.


Aroma Diffusers

Who doesn’t like a lovely smelling room? We have a huge range of home fragrance and our Aroma diffusers and Woodbridge oil refills are only £14 for both! This gift is sure to keep his home smelling great for many weeks.

Himalayan Salt Lamps

Don’t these make a different gift? Himalayan salt lamps contain 84+ minerals and act as an air purifier which helps to reduce allergies, improve breathing and aid sleep. They look pretty great too! (Prices from £24.99.)

I know it’s a cliche but what Dad doesn’t like a pair of socks? We sell sock brands Mr Heron and Boxt whose socks come in many charming and witty designs. My personal favourites, the Mr Heron ‘Wheely Awesome Dad’ socks. Who could resist?

(Mr Heron socks are £4.99 for a single pair. Boxt socks come in packs of 2 to 5 pairs and prices start at £12.99.)

Finally, who doesn’t love a gift voucher? With our huge range of plants, garden accessories and home and giftware, why not let Dad choose his own gift? Our gift vouchers are available in store and online here, a great option if you need an easily mailable gift as we can deliver straight to the recipient. We also sell afternoon tea for two gift vouchers too!
