Happy F-At-H-Er's Day! -

If you’re tired of giving ties, aftershave or socks to your deserving pops for Father’s Day, perhaps you want to get a little science-y this year. This geeky gift guide is the perfect list of ideas ranging from techy to foodie to DIY.

Most nerdy dads are always into the latest gadgets and technology, always wanting to figure out how it works and only happy to explain at great length to anyone who'll indulge them. Whether he's new to computer coding or mining bitcoin and hacking like a boss we have a fantastic range of Raspberry Pi and Arduino. These are fantastic for techies and can be used for super simple tasks like playing games or creating a smart home hub, or more complex projects like bringing down the system! This Raspberry Pi kit has everything he needs to get started.

If your dad has a smartphone, then you can't go wrong with a power bank. Waka Waka are sturdy, high capacity devices that give that extra bit of juice when needed. The Solar-Powered Light and Charger is especially impressive - with an integrated solar panel you can charge your charger with the power of the sun! Great for hikes or camping trips, or for any dad who always likes to be prepared.


If dad can't fix it then it can't be fixed! If your dad is a real fixer-upper then he will love our deadly range of new sticking stuff. Sugru is a 21st Century duct tape - a mouldable glue that will stick just about anything to anything - he's going to want this in his toolbox! Another mending wonderstuff is FORMcard - handy, pocket sized cards of strong, meltable bio-plastic that you can use to make, fix and modify absolutely everything. Pop it into hot water and it's a mouldable, shapeable, reuseable product with limitless uses - it truly is amazing!

The Chemistry Terrarium Kit is a great gift idea for green fingered science-dads. This deadly kit has everything you need to transform a conical lab flask into a mini indoor garden. Just add plants. (succulents not included but are widely available from flower shops and garden centres around town)

If you love your dad, you aorta tell him how you feel! (we couldn't resist a dad joke!) Made from premium Belgian chocolate, our anatomically correct Chocolate Human Hearts are the perfect way to tell him that he's bloody amazing! Go on and spoil him - he is bleedin' deadly!

 For more science gift ideas check out our Science Dad Collection here. Everything is available for collection in store or delivery - we can even gift wrap it and send it straight to your dad - we'll even write the card!
