North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)


North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)


Father's Day in the UK falls on Sunday 21 June this year. Who knows what the next month holds but for me personally, I will not be spending any time browsing physical shops for gifts any time soon.

I have been researching various gift ideas which can be ordered online and thought others may find this round-up handy. Let me know if you have any other ideas too.

As a side note, nobody has paid/ asked to be included in this post (although I may have worked with a couple of the brands mentioned in the past). This list is made up of my own personal recommendations and businesses friends / family have recommended/tried in the past too.




A Bespoke Hamper from Wilde Farm 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)  - Wilde Farm


Wilde Farm have been one of our favourite suppliers during lockdown. One of the reasons I love them is the option to create their bespoke boxes. As well as delicious meat from their farm, they stock local beers, homemade scotch eggs, sweet treats, homemade chutneys, specialist cheeses..... I love the idea of creating a bespoke hamper for someone special in your life depending on their likes.


A Card from Geordie Gifts

Geordie Gifts are my favourite card supplier. At the moment, they offer over 20 Father's Day cards with different local themes.

For The Love of the North are a lush local business with a bit of a speciality in local prints. There are loads to choose from and delivery is free across the UK.

Longsands Clothing are a company based here in the North East selling hoodies, t-shirts, hats, bags and accessories. With more of us staying at home now more than ever, it feels like the perfect time to treat a special man in your life to a comfy hoodie or t-shirt with a local twist.


Beers from Black Storm Brewery

Local Brewery Black Storm has recently opened an online store where you order a range of beers and ales to be delivered to your door. If you cant choose, ready-made gift sets or gift cards are also available. My family are big fans of Black Storm and I highly recommend.  There is a decent selection to choose from too.


Northumbrian Smokehouse Hamper

Northumbrian Smokehouse specialise in locally smoked produce including smoked meat rubs and black pudding, smoked cheeses, pates and houmous, smoked nuts, relish and smoked garlic olive oil. If your dad loves smoked produce, a little hamper from here will make his day.


Golf Vouchers



Whether you agree with this decision or not, at time of publishing, Golf courses are allowed to open. A golf voucher is an ideal gift for a keen golfer, especially if they have a long expiry date as it is something to look forward to. Matfen Hall in Northumberland and Ramside Hall in Durham would be my two recommendations.


  • Order online here: Ramside Hall and Matfen Hall (PS I have worked with both of these hotels before)
  • Delivery: FREE UK Delivery via email

Chilli Plants & Gifts

I have gone a little off-piste with this one as they are based in Devon but I ordered a chilli growing kit from them this week and have been super impressed with their prices and the service I received so I wanted to include them.

South Devon Chill Farm sell chilli plant kits containing everything you need to grow a chilli from as little as £5 alongside a lovely selection of chilli themed gifts including chilli chocolate, sauces, preserves, fresh chillis, chilli flakes, gifts and more. If your dad loves chillies, check out their online store.



Cote Brasserie Steak & Wine 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered) - cote brasserie steak


Cote Brasserie is one of my favourite restaurants. Delicious food, perfect service, wonderful surroundings and a brilliant price point. They have adapted their offerings with Cote at Home - the chance to enjoy some of your favourite Cote meals in the comfort of your own home. I love this idea.

There are lots of options but I think Steak Frites with a nice bottle of wine followed by a selection of French cheeses delivered to your door is one of the best gifts you can buy someone.

  • Order online here: https://coteathome.co.uk/
  • Delivery: UK wide. £4.95 with a £40 minimum spend (or free if you spend over £80)


Geordie Bangers Bundle 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)  - Geordie Bangers


Geordie Bangers sell THE best sausages and stocking your dad's freezer with their products is something that will make him very happy indeed. You can choose from a range of flavours (including Brown Ale Sausages) as well as bacon, burgers and black pudding too.



Mr Sneake Clean 

My friend Rachel shared this business over on her insta and I thought it was a brilliant idea. Mr Sneake Clean can clean and restore your trainers and bring them back to life. At the moment, they are running a special 2 pairs for £30 deal. If your dad has a favourite pair of trainers which could do with freshening up, I think this would make a brilliant alternative gift.


Photo Gifts & Video Messages 

For parents who are probably missing their children & grandchildren right now, photo gifts are perfect. You could make up a photobook featuring recent photos or maybe use photos from your favourite memories together. Or how about getting creative with other members of your family and creating a joint photo message - this doubles up as a great project for teens who can edit the video together.



Durham Whisky 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)  - Durham Whisky


Durham Whisky was founded in 2014 and is going to be the first place in the North East to produce Single Malt. Whisky is not ready to purchase and enjoy just yet but you can show your support and enjoy in a bottle for future use with various packages available. We did something similar for Steve's dad with the Lakes Distillery and it really does make a fab gift.

The Elvet Package has caught my eye. For £100, recipients will enjoy the chance to sample the spirit before and after maturation, an investment certificate and then in three years time will receive one of the first bottles from the distillery with a signed limited edition label.


Box Pizza Kit 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)  - box pizza


Box Pizza is based in Beadnell, Northumberland and their pizzas are just the best. During lockdown, they have launched a Pizza at Home kit. We tried it last weekend and it was excellent. A lot of thought has gone into the design and ingredients and if your dad is craving a proper pizza, one of these kits is the next best thing. The kit includes everything you need.



A Bespoke Mug 



Whenever I share a photo of my Suits Mug, people will ask where it's from. Steve bought me it for my birthday a while back and he designed it himself. These are SO easy to do with a quote from a favourite film / favourite saying / famous sport quote....so many options!

You can design an image / quote on a free design program such as Canva and then upload to a photo gift website such as Photobox.



Pin Club

I love these themed Pin Badges including a Greggs Sausage Roll, Workie Ticket and even Grotbags.


Northumberland Cheese Hamper 

North East Father's Day Gift Ideas (Delivered)  - northumberland cheese


If your dad loves cheese, Northumberland Cheese offer a variety of special boxes which can be posted direct. They also have a special Father's Day Hamper for £33 which looks fab.

Let me know if you have any other recommendations for Father's Day this year. It is always a bit of a weird one for me as I have been estranged from my own dad for over 10 years now. However, I do like to make it special for Steve, his dad and my Step-Dad too.
