Gift ideas for Father’s Day in Glasgow


This year, Father’s Day is taking place on the 18th of June.  If you’re struggling with ideas for gifts for the man who has it all, read our gift guide for inspiration for Father’s Day in Glasgow.

For outdoor lovers

If your dad’s idea of the perfect day involves climbing a hill or heading out on a hike, Trespass will have everything he needs. From walking to camping, Trespass has all the latest kit and equipment – perfect if you want to upgrade those old walking boots for him.

For the sporty dads (or dads-to-be!) browse JD Sports for the best gym gear and accessories. Nike, Adidas, or Under Armour – whatever his favourite brand, get him a gift he’ll get some good use out of.

For some self-care

If he’s someone who prides himself on his appearance, self-care gifts are the way to go. Perfectionists will love Guy & Beard, who have everything they’ll need to tame the mane. Think hair sprays and pastes or oil to keep the beard moisturised and in top condition. They also offer traditional barbering services, like a hot towel shave, for a treat.

The Fragrance Shop and The Perfume Shop have it all in terms of aftershaves and cologne. Whether he has an impressive collection or just a signature scent, make sure he’s never running low and top up those favourites. There’s something for every budget too, from under £10 all the way up to those designer options, like Giorgio Armani.

For something a bit more indulgent, pick up a gift set from Rituals including a foaming shower gel, fragrance sticks, and some luxury skin care. This might be a little different to the usual gifts, but he’ll love the chance to relax and take some time for himself.

For something special

If you really can’t decide, why not buy him something he’d never buy for himself? Treat him to some BOSS cufflinks, or a new tie for those special occasions. With summer fast approaching, invest in a pair of designer sunglasses from the recently opened Sunglass Hut right here at Silverburn. For a classic gift, head to Chisholm Hunter to pick out the perfect watch.

If he’s got discerning tastes, he’ll love the luxury brands available at Silverburn. Flannels, Kurt Geiger and Remus Uomo are all worth a visit to find that special something.

For a Father’s Day lunch

For the dads and father figures who appreciate activities more than gifts, treat him to a Father’s Day lunch in Glasgow. Sample some delicious and authentic Greek food at The Real Greek, with a menu full of meze, souvlaki, and a great vegan offering. Kids can enjoy a main course, drink and dessert for £7.50, (and on Sundays, they eat free!) so you can bring the little ones along without breaking the bank.

Wagamama offers small plates and main dishes that are bursting with flavour and are a tasty way to experience modern Asian cuisine. With a kids menu and a vegan menu alongside the main menu, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Now that we’re heading into the warmer months, why not try a new koyo bowl? Choose from chicken and caramelised onion, salmon, or aubergine and caramelised onion paired with a sticky red chilli and miso sauce drizzled over a crunchy and fresh mix of summer vegetables. A delicious, refreshing, and filling dinner option you won’t want to miss.

Or, head to the newly opened Stàilinn Scottish Kitchen and treat him to a Father’s Day breakfast he won’t forget. Build your own Scottish breakfast including 6, 9, 12, or 15 items, or snack on a quick breakfast roll instead.

Stàilinn prides themselves on locally sourced ingredients to make their traditional and modern Scottish dishes, so drop by any time of day and browse the menu of salads, seafood, burgers and much more. There’s vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options too, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

For someone who’s impossible to buy for

If the dad figure in your life claims he really doesn’t want anything this year, or if he’s simply impossible to buy for – let him choose a gift for himself! The Silverburn gift card is accepted in over 100 stores and restaurants, including Cineworld. And it’s valid for a whole year. So he has plenty of time to pick something for himself!
