Dickies Father’s Day Gift Guide

Your 2016 Guide

Think Dads are notoriously difficult to buy for? Let us help with our Dickies guide on the best gifts for the practical hard working man of 2016. Want to earn yourself extra brownie points this year? We’ve got you covered! With our workwear basics and specialist work gear, there’s something for Dads, Dad’s Dad, Uncles and anyone else you’d like to thank this Father’s Day.

The Hands On Dads

Is your earliest memory of Dad coming back from the daily grind, with muck on his face and work wear showing the toil of the day? When you visit your folks, do you see the tattered old trousers hung on the washing line? With Dickies, work wear never goes out of style and now is the time to help him upgrade his work wardrobe.

For The Builder
For Dads in construction, we’re sure they would think they’d hit the jackpot to receive one of these:



For The Mechanic

For the car fanatic, the Dickies Workwear Print T-Shirt is perfect for work and for play.


It can be worn under one of our work overalls and would look great with the Dickies Severn Safety Boots!

For The Plumber

Want a practical gift? A great range of protective or waterproof gloves are guaranteed to be up for the challenge. The Dickies Knee Pads are just that and are the perfect fit for the Dickies Eisenhower Max Trousers.  We’d finish this look with a 100% cotton Dickies Two Tone Polo Shirt.

The Outdoor Dad

Can you remember helping Dad in the garden; pulling up weeds for ice cream? Fetching his walking boots or helmet and waving him off at the door? Or spending days out listening to the expert tell you about his topic? For Dads with hobbies, it would be rude not to treat them to a new bit of kit for their favourite past time.

For The Gardener

The green fingered gardener would certainly love to receive one of these:


For The Cyclist


For the avid cyclist, make sure they are safe and seen come rain or shine in our Dickies Hi Vis Safety Waistcoat. Accessories are a must and the Bama Boot Socks will keep their feet dry. Our Dickies Creston Backpack finishes the look, and looks great with the Dickies 22 Woodson T-Shirt.

For The Hiker

Any keen hiker will tell you it’s all about the feet. As Dad knows best, why not show him you’ve been listening all of these years and go for the Medways.  Teamed with the Dickies Industry300 3/4 Length Trousers; triple stitched for durability, and the Dickies Plain T-Shirt, he’ll be set for miles. You could even add the Dickies Jansen Printed Sweatshirt, which is available in three colours and has a striking printed logo across the chest.

The Different Dad

Remember Dad putting ‘Dad Dancing’ to shame at Uncle who’s its wedding when you were knee high to a grasshopper?  Fail to put into words just who he is or what he does? Does he pride himself on being like no other? That’s what we mean by one of a kind and we’ve put together some of the gift ideas that really go with this.

For The Trendy

Dads come in all shapes and sizes, and with Dickies, it just doesn’t matter. Here are some staple items for the trendy Dad:

For The Office

Comfort is key for Office Dads and the Dickies Redhawk Trousers are comfortable, practical and smart. His waist will thank you for these:

Nothing says smart like a classic shirt and ours are available in a short and long sleeved version.  A sturdy shoe is a must! With a full grain leather upper, steel toe protection and a breathable lining, you really can’t go wrong with the Dickies Oxford Safety Shoes. Order our classic Dickies Grafters Belt to complete this look.

For The Pub

With Dickies work wear, Dad knows he can relax without the worry of his belt busting when attempting the backwards manoeuvre on to the beer garden bench. Any pub novice or Sunday regular would appreciate this apparel:

Don’t Forget The Odds & Sods

Dads love stuff that lasts, and our range of work wear inspired accessories fit the bill.  From our Dickies Vintage Print iPad Case, to our made for comfort Dickies Messenger Bag, there really is something for any Dad’s taste.  Why not treat him to a pack of Dickies Canvas Belts for a cool and adaptable gift idea?  There are three canvas belts to choose from, with an interchangeable buckle; a gadget gift that can be used for any occasion. Or, if all else fails, we suggest our 100% leather Dickies Leather Wallet .  You can’t go wrong with a wallet.  Just don’t send it back when they say it won’t open- it’s not us, it’s them! You can also find our range of accessories here.



Don’t forget we have introduced our same day despatch for any orders placed up to 8pm Monday-Friday.  There’s even free standard delivery for any orders over £50. Worried they won’t fit? No problem.  We offer free returns via Royal Mail or Collect+ within the UK.


Whether your father fits the bill on these descriptions or not, we’re certain there’s something for everyone in our guide. From traditional Dad to modern day Dad, we’ve got you covered. With socks and belts, tops and bottoms, look no further for Father’s Day 2016.
