Father's Day gifts for the Adventurous Dad

Posted on by Lizzie Watson

If you're still looking for a unique gift for your adventure-loving dad this Father's Day, then we've got the perfect present to thank him for being so wonderful. Our collection is an explorer's delight, and essential for the man who balances fatherhood with epic journeying!

You know that part in the movie Paddington, where Mr Brown takes a very pregnant Mrs Brown to the hospital on his motorbike?

Mary Brown: [Henry and Mary come off the motorbike into the hospital, Mary is heavily pregnant with Judy] Not going to let this change us, right?
Henry Brown: No way, baby!
[they do a high-five]

Well, when Mr Brown leaves the hospital, his motorbike, leathers and long hair are gone, and he bundles his new baby very carefully into a suitable family estate car. But becoming a father doesn't mean you have to lose your adventurous side, and Mr Brown does find his wild side again by the end of the film! 

We have some great offers available online from some of our British brands because they know how much our dads mean to us.

We are certain there's an Adventurer-Poet in every dad, so what better way to help him give in to his adventurous side with an original Christys 'Indiana Jones' hat. 
Made from luxury fur felt and sporting a rugged high crown and wide brim, it's wonderfully versatile and comes ready to shape to your own style.
A favourite among explorers and archaeologists, and everyone here at the BB HQ!


For a hard-core, indestructible gift, the Broadstone watch from Elliot Brown has a proven track record for circumnavigating the globe in some of the harshest seafaring conditions known to man. This watch will take you to the furthest reaches of the world. 

For every Broadstone watch purchase between now and Father's Day, you can choose a totally free, colour of choice, rubber watch strap. 


Perhaps your father is the well-travelled type who needs a brand new backpack? 
As a special treat for those far-flying dads out there, Tusting has given us an exclusive 15% off the safari backpack, using the code SAFARI15, until Father's Day. Tusting has been a hot favourite with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge over the years, and this backpack will make a long-lasting present for the dad in your life. 

Deliciously ethical, with a simple, classic style, The White T-Shirt Co are offering 15% off their men's t-shirts, using the code WHITET15, from now until Father's Day - they're perfect for gracing every travel bag and are an effortless addition to any look - wherever you are in the world. 




What dad doesn't love a pair of socks? Drake & Hutch have such a magnificent selection of colours and styles that you'll be spoilt for choice. Use our unique code - FEETFIRST20 - for 20% off. With so many to choose from, you'll have no problem finding the perfect pair to suit your dad's style!

If you're in need of the perfect keepsake for a dad who has hung up his backpack and put away his walking boots, then a unique print from Atlas & I is the perfect reminder of all the wonderful days spent with the wind in his hair and sand at his feet. Atlas & I's unique charm is the way they have used original old maps to create the perfect gift.

We love our dads because they're supportive, especially when the going gets tough, and they make us laugh! There are dads who can fix everything, dads who take us out for icecreams, dads who buy us the things we really, really want, dads who take us to parties and pick us up again when it's late.
Give them a gift to remember.
