Father’s Day presents to give in-person

Seeing Dad in person this Father’s Day? Sometimes that can give you a little more scope when it comes to last-minute gifts — you don’t need to worry about postage. Here are some options:

A tipsy treat

Whether he enjoys a fine whiskey, a cold pint, or a glass of smooth red wine, celebrate this special occasion with a tipple.

If you know he has a favourite brand or variety, pick up a bottle and present it in a nice gift bag. You could even add in an elegant glass or tumbler.

Is Dad a beer drinker? Why not give him the gift of something new with our Cocoa Beer? After all, sometimes the best presents are the items we might not have thought about getting ourselves. Let him enjoy a chocolatier’s twist on a classic. Brewed with cacao shells, this porter-style ale has deep malty notes with an underlying edge of chocolate. Alternatively, our Cocoa Blonde is a pale, fruity ale, with chocolate notes.

What about the dad who only wants a tiny snifter? Treat him to some Gin and Gin Liqueur miniatures or a selection of irresistible tipsy truffles. From Rum Truffles to our take on a Mojito, there are plenty of liqueur chocolates to explore.

Luxury chocolates

And if Dad isn’t a drinker, you can find dozens of other irresistible chocolate boxes that will surprise and delight him. Chocolates have got to be one of the best last-minute Father’s Day presents going — especially when you choose ethically sourced chocolates with high levels of cacao.

Our Father’s Day chocolates have been curated especially to show your dad how much you care. Complete with exclusive Father’s Day packaging, there’s a gift to suit every taste and budget.

The Father’s Day Sleekster gives him a little bit of everything, with 27 iconic chocolate recipes specially selected by our chocolatiers. Meanwhile, the Pocket Selection features eight favourite chocolates, ideal for a token of appreciation.

Kitchen gadgets

Does Dad fancy himself a bit of a chef?

Whether he’s a fan of baking, professes to be the BBQ king or likes to cook food that’s both tasty and super-healthy, any foodie is sure to appreciate some kitchen tech. From air fryers and authentic pasta makers to coffee machines and top-of-the-range blenders, kitchen gadgets are ideal for any foodie father.

For something truly luxurious, why not present him with our revolutionary hot chocolate machine: the Velvetiser? With engineering inspired by Mayan ingenuity, the Velvetiser creates deletably smooth, whipped hot chocolate at the touch of a button.

The Velvetiser makes creating sumptuous, barista-grade drinks at home unbelievably easy. He’ll never go back to powdered cocoa again!

Pampering goodies

From soothing hand cream for the keen gardener to bath oil for true relaxation, pampering beauty gifts are ideal when you’re short on time.

Our Rabot 1745 collection uses only the finest botanical ingredients for lotions, soaps, scrubs, and body butters that are kind to both your skin and the planet. Our Coffee Body Scrub is a refreshing and revitalising way to exfoliate — plus it smells heavenly!

If Dad works manually or enjoys tinkering with vehicles, he might find the skin on his hands gets dry and sore. Our Helping Hand Collection includes an uplifting Avocado and Sour Orange Hand Scrub to buff away rough skin and some gentle, Cacao and Wild Honey Hand Cream to replenish moisture. Packaged up in a lovely jute bag, it’s ready for last-minute gifting.

Last-minute Father’s Day presents to deliver afar

If you’re not able to see your dad in person this Father’s Day, that’s okay. You can still find a fantastic Father’s Day present and get it delivered in time for the big day.

An experience e-voucher

With an e-voucher, there’s no need to worry about postage. Your giftee will get an email with their gift attached instantly. So even if you’ve left it too late for posting, you can make sure Dad has something nice to open.

While you could absolutely send him a gift card for his favourite shop so he can choose an item himself, another option is to organise an activity.

Experience gift cards are perfect for those who like to get out and about and try new things. Whether he’s into extreme sports, culinary courses or dancing, send him a voucher that will offer him a great day out.

Chocolate lovers will adore our Bean to Bar Experience. Guided by an expert chocolatier, your recipient will learn how to make chocolate from scratch, using beans grown on our own cocoa estate in Saint Lucia. They can also take their handmade chocolate creation home with them. You can send a Bean to Bar eGift Card so Dad can pick a date that works for him.

Chocolate goodies by post

We might have included chocolate as a great in-person gift but we have to add it in here, too! Premium chocolates are the ideal present when it comes to versatility. With Hotel Chocolat, you can send chocolate boxes, batons and slabs, selectors, and hampers directly to your lucky recipient.

Either choose some of our pre-packaged treats — perhaps a Large Chocolate Hamper or the Classic Cabinet — or build your own hamper. A bespoke collection is a lovely way to add a personal touch to your gift.

Add a gift message, choose your gift wrap options, and we’ll get your present on its way to Dad’s address! Learn more about our delivery options.

A subscription

For a gift that keeps on giving, set Dad up with a subscription. From magazines and books to tea and cheese, there are plenty of gift subscriptions available. At Hotel Chocolat, we offer a variety of subscription options, ranging from drinking chocolate to Sleeksters.

We even have a Build-a-Box subscription that allows you to really tailor your chocolate treats. Whichever subscription you go for, just choose your genre, select how frequently you want the delivery, and sit back and relax!

WHOOSH! Instant Gift by Text

Similar to an e-gift, our exclusive WHOOSH! Instant Gift by Text service lets you select and pay for a gift — your recipient will get the details of it via their phone. They can choose to have the gift posted to them or they can go to their nearest Hotel Chocolat store to collect it.

Quick, simple, and effective!
