Our Father's Day gift ideas are designed to give the tech-loving father in your life something to enjoy on his special day. You should also make sure he gets a nice lie-in and some coffee too.
The big day, in case you didn't realise, is on 21st June this year so you've got less than a week to get yourself organised!
Our gift ideas are intended to celebrate the man who has perfected the art of being both moody and joyful. The man who has perfected the eye rolling - no one rolls their eyes with more gusto than a man asked to empty the recycling bins.
Dads are also great at muttering, and in particular muttering the most colourful words in the English language while engaged in DIY and other domestic chores.
So, with father's day fast approaching we've compiled a list of 40 of the best gift ideas under £50 so you can spoil your dad... but not too much.
If your dad doesn't have Chromecast then he's missing out. The good news is, for just £25 you can help him not miss out any more. Chromecast is great because it's cheap, lets you send video and music from your phone to a TV and best of all, it's brilliantly simple to use.
2. Spider-Man morphsuit
There's absolutely no excuse for men to wear lycra UNLESS it's a Spider-Man morphsuit, because they are hilarious and an absolutely ideal way for men to do what men do best, which is act like a child.
3. T3 Magazine
What could be a better Father's Day gift than a subscription to the UK's best and most famous gadget magazine? Available on mobile, tablet and of course on paper, you can save up to 58% on a subscription at myfavouritemagazines.co.uk
4. The Wire Blu-ray
Don't you DARE go over £50 the editor said, I want affordable gifts, he reiterated. Well, to hell with that, The Wire is the best TV show of all time, and they've gone back to the original film stock and turned it into proper HD. Plus, it was supervised by the creator David Simon. Plus: Idris Elba
5. Pac-Man Ghost Lamp
Dads are nostalgic creatures, and even if they aren't old enough to have strong memories of Pac-Man, it's likely that they will have heard of it and will want to get in on the nostalgia. So, get him a Pac-Man Ghost Lamp for £30, he'll be chuffed.
6. Black and Decker power drill
At first sight this looks like you're hinting about getting that set of shelves put up after they've sat on the floor for six months. But in fact, if your dad doesn't have a Black and Decker power drill then he's unable to do the most important job a man has: pretending a power drill is a gun.
7. Amazon Fire TV Stick
Designed to compete with the Chromecast, but actually much better - the Amazon Fire TV Stick supports loads of Android apps from Amazon's own store. Plus it has access to Amazon's on-demand video, as well as Netflix and apps like Plex and some great games. It's a bargain.
8. 500 flying saucers
If the press is to be believed, kids these days are all skulling cider and injecting vodka. But when your dad grew up we were all getting hopped-up on sherbert-filled flying saucers made out of weird paper-like material. Yum.
9. Laphroaig Quarter Cask Whisky
There are other Whiskies, but Laphroaig Quarter Cask is very special, and it's not horribly overpriced either. What you get here is a beautiful-tasting, highly peaty whisky that is ideal for the man who likes to fall asleep in front of the TV.
10. Otterbox Defender iPhone case
Your dad is amazing, but he's also an idiot who drops things, so help him protect his iPhone with an Otterbox Defender case. With the Defender, he can drop his phone as much as he likes, but it won't break.
11. Juice Weekender 8400mAh battery
The Juice Weekender 8400 mAh battery is ideal for power when you're out and about because it has both iPhone and standard USB power connectors built-in. No need to take cables, everything you need is self-contained and it can charge any phone completely, and most tablets too.
12. Seagate 1TB portable hard drive
Grab a Seagate 1TB portable hard drive and your dad can keep a copy of his tax records, important documents and that Katy Perry music video that he thinks you don't know about. A massive 1TB of space means it's also ideal for backing up those baby photos too, the ones that don't need to see the light of day unless people find out about that Katy Perry video.
13. Anker 6-port USB charger
Plug the Anker 6-port USB charger into the mains and you get six USB ports for charging you phone, tablet and any other USB device. High power output means things will charge quickly and it's not too big either, which is ideal for a desktop.
14. Leather messenger bag for laptops
If your old man has a laptop, then grab the Gusti Leder Nature Leather messenger bag for laptops, to help him lug it about. It looks great, and it's a bargain too with space for a 15-inch laptop. Ideal for Macbooks and PCs alike.
15. Caison laptop laptop sleeve
Soft inside, tough outside - sort of like your dad. The Caison laptop laptop sleeve is available in several sizes and colours, and will suit any laptop. Will keep your device looking as fresh and new as it did the day he bought it.
16. Horse mask
Don't be stupid, of course your dad needs a horse mask. Literally the perfect Father's day gift idea.
17. Cafflano Klassic All-in-one coffee maker
Fathers day gifts don't come much better than this. For £65 you get the Cafflano Klassic All-in-one coffee maker that your dad can keep with him wherever he goes. Grind the beans, pour on some hot water and you're off.
18. Corsair M65 RGB gaming mouse
It might be designed for gaming, but the Corsair M65 RGB gaming mouse is flat-out the nicest mouse you can get for any use. It sounds expensive, but when you use it the first time you realise it just changed your life for the better.
19. Remington Barba
When your father discovers the joy of a Remington Barba beard trimmer he's never going to go back to wet shaving ever again. Using a beard trimmer takes three minutes, doesn't hurt and leaves you with a masculine amount of stubble. Plus you can manscape, but keep that quiet.
20. Kingston 128GB USB stick
Not calling your dad old, but there's a good chance he remembers when a disk held 128k of data. Now, this little Kingston USB stick thing can hold a staggering 128GB. You should buy him one just to rub in how things have changed, and that's he's old. Just don't tell him TechRadar sent you, he looks scary.
21. Bosch Tassimo
These coffee machines are on perpetual sale because the hardware is a loss-leader to get you drinking the coffee. But that said, some of the coffee and tea you can get from the Bosch Tassimo is actually rather delightful, so it's worth buying. Get some coffee pods too though, you stingy thing.
22. Olloclip 4-in-1 lens for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
As father's day gift ideas go, this one is gold if your dad likes photography. Olloclip 4-in-1 lens takes the amazing camera on the iPhone and gives you a variety of different lenses to produce more exciting images. There are versions for other iPhones too, if your dad has an older model.
23. Ozeri Nouveaux II Electric Wine Opener
In terms of stereotypes, your dad will likely enjoy being drunk and will also be lazy enough to appreciate an Ozeri Nouveaux II Electric Wine Opener. We apologise if your dad doesn't drink and isn't lazy – just move on.
24. Pat Butcher wall clock
The Pat Butcher wall clock will likely annoy the hell out of your dad, which is what makes it a great father's day gift.
25. Soundmagic E10S headphones
Great sound, a little carry case and a bunch of tips to suit all ears. For £40 these Soundmagic E10S headphones are a bargain and sure to keep your dad happy while he's mowing the lawn and swearing.
26. The West Wing
You can argue about what is actually the best TV show of all time. But if The Wire isn't for you, then try The West Wing. Perhaps an easier watch, it's one of the most perfect shows ever to hit the small screen. Even in its worst episodes, it's still amazing.
27. Amazon Kindle
It's a bit over the budget, but for around £60 you can get the entry-level Amazon Kindle. Don't be put off by the basic product, it does the job brilliantly.
28. Star Wars X Wing kitchen knife block
Again, a little over the budget, but you get an X Wing knife block , which has to be the most perfect father's day gift idea of all time, right? It looks official too, but that's no surprise as George Lucas would pretty much licence anything by the end.
29. Star Trek Enterprise 1701 model
You dad will need to have some patience for this Star Trek Enterprise 1701 model, but giving someone a model to build will keep them happy and quiet for hours. If you dad isn't patient, build it for him.
30. Tefal Toast N' Egg
There's not a man alive that wouldn't like a toaster that also cooks you an egg. If your dad doesn't like eggs, then there's a version of the Tefal Toast N' Egg that cooks beans too.
31. Book rest lamp
It's a lamp, but you can rest your book on it and keep your place. It's the Book rest lamp What a time to be alive.
32. The Martian audiobook
One editor at TechRadar describes this as "the best thing ever written". He may not be a dad, but he is a man and might one day become a dad. So that will do right? The Martian is going to be a movie soon, so it must be good.
33. Cards Against Humanity
If you're the sort of family that can laugh about anything, then Cards Against Humanity is the ideal Father's Day gift idea. Please though, spend some time looking into it first, if you're offended by words on cards, these words will likely trigger the hell out of you.
34. Erin Grey poster
Erin Grey might be the most beautiful woman ever to walk the earth. If your dad has ever seen Buck Rogers In The 25th Century then he's going to take this poster, go to his study and find the best spot to hang it as soon as you hand it over.
35. Philips LivingColors light
Every man loves a colour-changing lamp, so grab this Philips LivingColors light to keep your dad out of the way while he tinkers around while muttering something about "a warming mood in the study".
36. Super Mario Chess
Chess is a legit game, and you look dead smart playing it. The problem is, the characters are a bit dull - seriously, rook, yawn. So why not spice things up a bit with characters from Nintendo's Super Mario. Why not indeed.
37. Sony PlayStation Wallet
What are you waiting for, it's a wallet that looks like a Sony PlayStation.
38. Qwertee gift card
Get your dad enough gift credits for three Qwertee t-shirts. If you've never seen Qwertee before, check them out. Ideal for geeks and they offer a pair of new designs each day. This makes its shirts super-limited edition.
39. Braun Oral-B PRO 2000 Toothbrush
Look at that product name: "Braun Oral-B PRO 2000 CrossAction 2-Mode Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush" it's absurd, and this is just an electric toothbush. Goodness only knows what Braun would call something that actually mattered. Still, no better way to tell your dad he smells and to clean his damn teeth.
40. Grand Theft Auto 5
Grand Theft Auto 5 is the best game ever. Get the PC version for the best results – although you'll need a powerful machine. Also available on Xbox 360/One and PS3/4.
41. iTunes Gift Card
You shouldn't really give vouchers for gifts because nothing says "I forgot to get you something until three hours ago" quite like a voucher. But let's be honest here, men don't care about effort, men care about amounts and a £50 iTunes gift card is pretty smashing. The good news too is that this is scalable if you don't want to spend £50.
