Dad's are a pain in the backside to buy for. Instead of lumbering the poor old codger with socks, slippers and all that old garbage again this year, get him something he'll adore. Below we've selected some of our favourite footy gifts that won't break the bank.

Football boot drinking glass
Combining every dad's two favourite things: football and beer
If your dad loves a pint as the next one, this could be the perfect gift for him. It's a bit of fun and his mates will love it. A novelty take on the classic boot drinking glass designs - seen in all major Bavarian beer tents - this glass is adapted for football lovers.
N.B. - if he's one of those weird men who prefers rugby (boo!) you can get away with saying it's a rugby boot instead.
Build you own Wembley Stadium
Combining every dad's other two favourite things: football and building things!
A perfect gift idea for fathers of young children. This build you own Wembley Stadium kit is great for dads and kids to do together, to help pass the time one rainy Saturday or in the excitement to a big Three Lions game at the home of English football.
The stadium can be recreated in spectacular colour and detail in around three-five hours without the need for scissors, tools or glue making it a must for all football fans.
Test your dad's building nous with a great gift idea this Father's Day.
Retro Kits from Score Draw
For the 'Things used to be better back in my day' dads out there
Predator Mutator 20.1 Football Boots
The daddy of all football boot series
Does your dad like to boss the midfield for his local pub team as much as he enjoys bossing the TV remote every night? Why not getting him some top of the range football boots to help him play like his heroes!
As worn by the likes of Dele Alli and Paul Pogba, the Predator Mutator 20.1 is a proper midfielder's boot - all about control. A snug fit, a great design and a classic series - you can be sure these boots will go the distance, giving your old man that extra edge in the heat of the midfield battle until the final seconds of injury time.
They don't come more revered and respected than the Predator range.
Not an Adidas man? We reviewed the best boots of 2020 from all manufacturers - including Nike, Puma and Umbro, in our best footballs on the market review. Also be sure to check out our best goalkeeping gloves and football equipment reviews too.
Is your old man constantly harking on about how football was better back in his day? When men were men and there was none of this rolling around on the floor lark?
Send him back in time with a classic kit from Score Draw - the market leaders in replica kits. The great thing about this gift idea is there is something for dads of all ages - whether he was a fan of Greavesie, Keegan, Lineker, Shearar or Gerrard, there's a shirt from every era.
Affordable, superbly made and dripping in nostalgia. He'll love it!
Beer chug hat
For dads who can't be a**** to go to the fridge more than once
An absolute classic. No dad's collection of big match-watching paraphernalia is complete without a novelty beer chugging hat. Simply whack two cans in the, er, holsters and away he goes. Hours of fun - just maybe replace them with an alcohol free drink from time to time to prevent him nodding off before extra-time.
A bit of fun, affordable and a classic crown pleaser.
