The Best Fathers Day Gift from Portwest The Outdoor Shop

Father’s Day is right around the corner, falling on Sunday, June 16th this year.


It's the perfect occasion to show the father figure in your life just how much you appreciate all they do. Whether it’s your dad, grandfather, uncle, or even a mentor, finding the right gift can be a bit challenging. We’ve got you covered with our most popular gift ideas available at Portwest - The Outdoor Shop.


For the tech-savvy dad who loves to stay up-to-date with the latest gadgets, there’s no shortage of options that can make his day special.



Let There Be Light:

A good torch is an essential gadget for any dad who loves the outdoors or needs a reliable light source for DIY projects. Whether it’s for camping trips, late-night dog walks, or emergencies, a high-quality torch or headlight is both practical and thoughtful. Look for torches with adjustable brightness, long battery life, and durable, water-resistant designs. 




Tool Time:


Is there ever a time when your father figure is looking for a screwdriver or a bottle opener and just can’t find one? A multitool is an ideal gift any time of the year, not just this Father’s Day.




One Cup or Two?


A stylish and functional flask is a great gift for any dad who enjoys hot drinks on the go. Ideal for coffee or tea, during outdoor adventures or just a day away from home. Flasks keep beverages at the perfect temperature for hours. You can choose from our leakproof Stanley range.




Gift Cards:


If you’re not entirely sure what to get, a gift card is a safe bet. The Outdoor Shop offers a range of gift cards that allow the father figure in your life to choose exactly what they want. You can choose an instore gift card to use in one of our 4 stores or an online gift card to use on our website




If the father figure in your life craving some fun?




For the dad who loves to explore rivers, lakes, or the ocean, a kayak is a fantastic gift. They offer endless hours of fun and exercise, allowing him to enjoy Ireland from a new perspective.






Help your dad make the most of summer in Ireland with a high-quality wetsuit. Whether he enjoys surfing, diving, or simply just paddling in water, a well-fitted wetsuit can provide warmth, flexibility, and protection from the sun.




Changing Robes:


A changing robe is an excellent gift your father figure may not realise he needs. These robes are perfect for changing in public places. They offer privacy, warmth, and comfort, making post-water activities much more enjoyable. Look for options with quick-drying materials and practical features like pockets and hoods like our Bleubird Changing Robes.




Something to Wear?


For the dad who loves to stay stylish and comfortable, consider gifting a new outfit. Leisurewear from The Outdoor Shop combines functionality with fashion, making it perfect for any occasion.


Outdoor Jackets

A high-quality outdoor jacket is a must-have for any dad who enjoys spending time outside. Look for jackets that are waterproof, windproof, and breathable, ensuring that he stays comfortable no matter the weather.




Comfortable Hoodies

A soft, cosy hoodie or fleece is perfect for relaxing at home or layering during outdoor activities. You can choose from our most popular brands like Bleubird, WeirdFish and of course, our own Portwest range.




Stylish Pants

Comfortable yet stylish pants are great for both outdoor adventures and casual outings. Look for options that are durable and offer a good range of motion, making them suitable for hiking, swimming, or just running errands.




Baseball Caps

A classic baseball cap is a staple in any dad’s wardrobe. They’re perfect for casual outings, sports events, or just a day in the sun. Look for high-quality materials and adjustable straps for a comfortable fit.





For dads who need to keep warm during the cooler days, a cosy beanie is a great gift. Choose from a variety of styles and materials, including wool and fleece, to find one that matches his taste.


Sun Hats

If your dad spends a lot of time outdoors, a sun hat can provide essential protection from harmful UV rays. Wide-brimmed hats offer great coverage and are ideal for gardening, hiking, or beach trips.




And to Complete His Outfit 

It might sound cliché, but socks can be a great gift, especially when they’re as cool and comfy as merino socks.




Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift doesn’t have to be stressful. With a little thought and the right resources, you can make this Father’s Day one to remember for the father figure in your life.
