Want to say a big thank you to your Dad but not sure what to get? We take a look at the best Father of the bride gift ideas for you to choose from.

With Father's Day just a few days away (Sunday 19th June in case you'd forgotten!) we thought we would take a look at some gifts that you can give to the first man in your life on your wedding day. Tradition dictates that the Father of the bride is responsible for providing the funds behind the majority of your special day, and while that might not always be the case nowadays, we're sure you still have a lot to thank your Dad for on your wedding day.

We've put together some of our favourite gifts for the Father of the Bride so you can show your gratitude.

1. Cufflinks

Cufflinks are a classic present for male wedding attendees. By gifting your Dad a pair, he can reminisce about your big day every time he wears them. Why not go the extra mile and opt for an engraved set to really make them special?

3. Hip Flask

There's something about a hip flask that provides an air of traditional style to a man's wedding day outfit. Whatever they put in it is entirely up to them, but you can make sure that your Dad keeps it classy with a sterling silver or leather-finished container.
