Every day should be Father's Day in our eyes, but it's nice to have that one dedicated date where we get to spoil our beloved Dads. This Sunday marks a special day when we can show them how much we appreciate their awesomeness.
Below are a selection of thoughtful and useful gifts that will make their day. And the best news? You can still order them all now and get them in time for the big day...
1. Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon
If Dad's a tech fan, what better gift could you give than a powerful, hands-free, voice-controlled box that can control all his smart home devices? It may be no bigger than a beer mat, but it can play music, read the news, report on the weather, update on the latest sports scores and control gadgets like Hive and Nest smart thermostats and Philips Hue lightbulbs.
The small but mighty Echo Dot uses Alexa Voice Service to deliver all your needs with a simple spoken request. Dad might like to try, 'Alexa, what's the latest test match score?'
This fabulous device is a great gift for the modern man to keep him up to date with the world. The beauty of it being from Amazon is the speedy service – if you're a Prime customer, you can order today & get it tomorrow, in plenty of time for Sunday!

2. Sony MDR-ZX77OBN Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones, John Lewis
If Dad likes his music, he will love a pair of headphones. This quality Sony design offers superb sound quality, with the bonus of noise-cancelling technology to eradicate 98% of ambience noise. They're just the thing for blocking out chatter on his commute, or rocking out in his armchair without disturbing Mum.
Thanks to a clever NFC chip, this set is Bluetooth ready, allowing Dad to stream his favourite playlists and podcast from his Android or iOS device. And because we know comfort is just as important to Dads as the tech spec comfort factor, you'll be pleased to know the softly padded over-ear design ensures a thoroughly enjoyable user experience all round. A two-year guarantee is included. Order today and take advantage of the Click & Collect service to pick up in store tomorrow.

It's quirky but ultra useful thanks to its reliable laser technology, which can measure distances of up to 20m at the press of a button. Gone are the days of quick-fire retractable tape measure injuries! Order by 7.30pm tonight to get it tomorrow.

7. Ottoman Tile Pocket Square, Rampley & Co.
For the true gentleman, it's important to pay attention to the finer details when it comes to their attire. A pocket handkerchief is as traditional as it gets but still very much a Dad buy.

Sign up today and simply write a note in his card, or, better still, buy the latest issue from a local retailer to wrap up to make him excited ahead of the next month's issue. It's the ultimate last-minute buy.
