Fathers Day is fast approaching - this Sunday 17th June, to be exact and if you're anything like us at Up All Hours, you'll be racking your brains for something a bit more special than socks, however without wanting to break the bank.

We've put together our Top 5 affordable buys for knackered Dads, which we feel should at the very least bring a smile to their tired eyes and lift their somewhat broken spirits.
- New Dad Sleeping Socks from My 1st Years £12.
So firstly, let's blow that sock statement we made earlier right out of the water! My 1st Years do a vast range of personalised toys, blankets, clothing, bed, bath and home accessories, but we're a bit in love with these socks. When tired Papa pops up his feet, you see the sweet message. We just had to go for the New Dad Sleeping pair, but there are plenty more that can also be personalised. Plus if you hurry, you'll get 10% off your first order.
- Dadmin Superhero Charity T-shirt £18.99
We all love a bit of charidee and what better way to celebrate the Dad in your life by giving something back too? Win, win! Dadmin, who specialise in stylish gifts for the modern Dad have teamed up with children's charity, Action for Children to launch a superhero charity t-shirt, where 100% of the profits go to the charity. We're sure you'll agree any Knackered Dad will look ace in this, whether on the sofa in a sleep deprived daze, or out pushing the buggy of a child that just refuses to nap!
- Orb Virtual Reality Headset £10.99, The Hut
Got a geek to buy for? Compatible with most leading phones, this allows you to experience VR from chasing dinosaurs, to swimming with sharks with 100% of apps free to download. It's great fun for the whole family, to be fair - and affordable! Plus Knackered Dad's will definitely keep their eyes well and truly open with this one.
4. Barista & Co Coffee Brew It Stick £12, Whittard
This nifty little number allows you to brew a coffee in just 4 minutes, with no faff or messing about with filter papers. You just fill the basket with ground coffee, pop it in a mug and pour hot water through the top filter. Dad can literally do this with his eyes closed! Plus Whittard have lots of lovely ground coffee that you can buy to accompany this clever piece of kit.
*We did stumble across another type of coffee aimed specifically at men, which produces a similar effect to Viagra, but we've kept that firmly off the Top 5 list!
- Super Dad Mug £9.99, Zavvi
And what Fathers Day list would be complete without a mug? Plus, he'll need to pour his caffeine fuelled beverage in to something! We love this Super Dad mug and feel it will serve as a reminder of their awesome Dad super powers, complete with a cape.
So that's our Top 5 - just a few ideas that may float your boat and won't break the bank either. You're welcome!
