Made from stainless steel and powered by quartz movement, it’s fastened with a black rubber strap and there’s a date function too. There’s free next day delivery on all orders over £60 and plenty of alternative designs. Order by 4pm on Friday. £110, watchshop.com

Other options include an introduction to flying (£129) and a four star London stay plus theatre (£239). From £25, virginexperiencedays.co.uk
3/8 Peper Harow Sock Subscription
If your dad’s sock drawer is looking a sorry sight, he’ll love this new online sock subscription service. You can choose one, two or three pairs to arrive every month for three, six or 12 months. Each pair is made from Pima cotton, a durable yet soft and absorbent fabric. There's a choice of colours and out-of-the-ordinary patterns. Order for Father's Day and you'll get a voucher that you can pop in a card to let your dad know what is coming his way. From £48, peperharowlondon.com
4/8 Spotify Premium Subscription
Dads not signed-up to the digital music streaming service will thank you for getting them a subscription. They'll get on-demand access to over 20 million tracks on mobile, tablet and computer and will be able to create playlists, browse for new music and listen offline while on the go. From £10, spotify.com
5/8 BOSS Bud Leather Belt
If you haven't got time to traipse around the shops, John Lewis might just be your saviour. Order online by 2pm on Friday 13 June and you will be able to pick up your pressie from one of the participating John Lewis and Waitrose shops on the Saturday. There are hundreds of options. We like this classic leather belt with a silver-tone buckle. £65, johnlewis.com
6/8 Cotswold Outdoor Evoucher
Whatever your dad’s outdoor interests – be it skiing, camping, trekking or something else altogether – this store has it covered. The Chap-grip, a handy lipsalve in a case that can be clipped to your shirt, costs just £4.25, while the popular Jack Wolfskin Serpantine 3 in 1 Jacket comes in at £200. There’s plenty in between these prices ranges too. From £5, cotswoldoutdoor.com
7/8 Hotel Chocolate Tasting Club Subscription
As far as food subscriptions go, this is awesome. Your dad will receive a new box of original and often unusual chocolates from this top chocolatier every four weeks for for three months, six months or a year. He can choose his selection from mixed, all dark, no alcohol or rare cocoa. The only downside is when the subscription time is up. Order online and you can pick up the gift pack within two hours at over 70 store locations. They are taking orders up until 1pm on the actual day - you'll just need to make sure you get there before the shops close. From £50, hotelchocolat.com
8/8 The Gentleman’s Indulgent Afternoon Tea, Chester Grosvenor
Afternoon tea isn’t exactly, well, manly. But there’s not a dainty cake or finely cut cucumber sandwich in sight with this one. Instead, expect crusty doorstep sandwiches, chunky chips and local Cheshire cheese, as well as fruit cake, brownies – all washed down with a G&T and a pot of tea. Purchase and they will send you an email voucher. £28 per person, chestergrovesnor.com
You’ll be hard pushed to find a dad who won’t appreciate a Spotify Premium Subscription, even if he doesn’t understand what it is when you give it to him. Providing all his favourite tracks on tap, he will be in music heaven in no time. We also like the BOSS Bud Leather Belt – a grand opportunity to get your own back on any dad that has a history of telling his offspring to pull up their trousers.
