Father’s Day is fast approaching this Sunday, June 18, and while it’s very much a day to celebrate all the men out there raising kiddos, let’s not forget to honour and appreciate all of the dog dads in our lives, too.
Dedicated and devoted, these men are the designated pooper scoopers, rough players and generally doggos favourite human no matter how many extra treats we sneak to try and win over their affection.
This year, Yappy.com has opened up their Father’s Day shop and it’s brimming with personalised gifts that you won’t find anywhere else, including fun metal signs, search and find books, keyrings, cards and more – with a gift to celebrate every kind of dog dad, with budgets to suit all.
Each gift is customised to feature your dog – you can simply enter their name, select an icon from over 350 breeds and in a few simple steps you can create your very own one-of-a-kind shop with hundreds of unique gift ideas to choose from, and see exactly what they’ll look like when they arrive.
The Scamps have pulled together their top picks for Father’s Day, but you’ll have to order quickly for them to arrive in time, with the majority of items on their website being personalised and despatched within three to four working days, with a 48 postage from Royal Mail.
Dog Traditional Style Playing Cards
Particularly on our yearly trip to Cornwall, but also out in the garden now the weather is nice, we love to play a game of cards and this deck is a fab but functional little keepsake.
Priced at £14.99, there are three designs to choose from, including blue, red with your dogs icon, or another where you can upload a photo of your pet – our blue deck features Phoebe’s brindle emoji-style character.
The standard deck of 52 playing cards is personalised with your dog’s illustrated icon on the reverse of each card, with the Jacks, Queens, Kings and Joker’s also sporting their image.
Arriving in a personalised cardboard box, these playing cards truly stand out from the pack and are guaranteed to make every card game even more tail-waggingly fun!
Brewery Tap House: Personalised Dog Metal Sign
Whether you have a bar cart, mini bar or a whole garden shed turned garden pub, this brewery tap house sign is perfect if you’re partial to a pint and your dog enjoys a tail ale,
Ours reads ‘The Staffie Brewery and Taphouse’, but this can be personalised with hundreds of different breeds. Coming in at £19.99, the sign features Frank’s icon peeking over a table with a bottle of Frank’s Tail Ale, a bottle opener and pint, finished with the slogan ‘Every hour is yappy hour’.
Measuring 20cm by 35sm, the aluminium sign is vibrant in colour and has holes in each corner for easy hanging, but it can also sit well on a shelf without any need for screws.
We’re looking at turning the shed into a mini bar this year, and we’ll definitely be naming it after the Scamps, so this metal sign will be the ultimate finishing touch.
Yappy also has similar signs for home bars in slightly different styles to suit your decor, as well as versions for wine bars or for BBQ areas.
No.1 Dog Dad Personalised Dog Keyring
Dog dads are typically their canine companion’s personal chauffeur, so this keyring will be the perfect addition to their car keys this Father’s Day. The Yappy.com Exclusive Dog Design features your dog’s icon on one side – ours has Phoebe’s – and the words ‘No.1 Dog Dad’ on the reverse.
Measuring at 4.7cm it’s a good size but also very light so won’t add tones of weight to your keys, and is available in a range of colours including blue, green, orange and red.
We also have the Crazy Dog Lady version of this key charm from our Mother’s Day guide and they’re a fab way to brighten up your bunch of keys and be reminded of your fluffy bestie no matter where you are.
‘I Woof My Dad’ Personalised Dog Bandana
Yappy’s bandanas are some of our favourites because they come in three sizes and are tie on, so you can adjust them according to the size of your dog’s neck. There are lots of designs to choose from for Father’s Day, but we picked this I Woof My Dad design with Frank’s face because he is SUCH a Daddy’s boy and we’re constantly saying ‘you love your dad, don’t you Frank?’.
This particular design comes in six colours to suit your pooch’s style, and is made in the UK from a high quality, durable fabric that is machine washable, ideal for mucky pups.
Cute and comfortable, this fun fashion accessory is personalised with an adorable Dog icon to make it extra special, and casts just £9.99.
So if your dog is obsessed with their Pops, this is the most adorable accessory to put them in to surprise dog dad on Sunday morning.
Furoni Personalised Dog Coasters
Whether your dog dad loves Peroni, Carlsberg or Budweiser, Yappy has some fantastic coasters inspired by popular lagers that can be personalised with your pet’s name and Yappycon, and are sure to leave guests grinning when they set their drink down.
A set of four coasters costs £14.99, made from high-quality cork that’s non-slip and will keep surfaces protected from watermarks. Ours reads: Furoni dog beer for Phoebe, with her little icon in the centre.
And if you wanted to get a gift for the dog to match, there’s a beer bundle featuring Yappy’s Furoni dog beer, alongside pet friendly popcorn and crisps here.
Pair these coasters with a four-pack of beers and dog dad is certain to have a cracking weekend all-round.
‘Woof You More Than You Woof Beer’ Personalised Dog Card
Last but not least, you’ll of course need a card, and to save paying a fortune for one at the supermarket or petrol station, you can get one with your gift at Yappy for only £1.99.
This particular design resembles a frothy pint of beer with the words: ‘Woof You More Than You Woof Beer’.
The A5 cards are left blank inside to allow your pooch to share their own message about how much their pawrent means to them.
We also think these inkless paw prints are awesome for adding into cards for that extra special touch.
And this is just a fraction of what Yappy has to offer for Father’s Day this year, with dozens of gifts available to shop on the Father’s Day section of their website. But remember to order quickly, or your gifts risk arriving after the big day – not that we think dog dad would mind at all.
