If your father-figure is a pop-culture enthusiast, then the Speakerface clothing range could be the perfect addition to his wardrobe! From Star Wars to the Karate Kid you are sure to find a T-shirt he'll be proud to wear! If Dad loves Star Wars, then something from our Rocklove range will be sure to make him smile! A true Star Wars fan won't be able to resist the Men's Sith Rings, Ewock chains and other Star Wars Medallions!

2. Gaming Gear

If your father-figure is a gamer you can't pass up the chance to upgrade his gaming chair , gaming controller or grab him the latest games! These Cable Guy Controller Holders are also super cute, and celebrate several pop-culture franchises! From Spyro and Banjo Kazooie to Deadpool and Spider-man, you're sure to find your Dad's passion represented!

Top Gift Picks for Christmas 2019

Needing a bit of gift inspiration this year? Mighty Ape has you covered! Check out our 2019 Christmas Gift Guide and read on for ideas to suit anyone!

1. Christmas Treats

Sweet treats are the best kind of gift as they are likely to be shared with you! Christmas themed chocolates are ideal for when you’re on a tight budget but still love letting people know you’re thinking of them at Christmas time… or for that colleague you’ve been eyeing up as friend material (but you don’t want to come on ‘too strong’).

2. Summer Fun

Make sure your friends and family members are well stocked for Summer activities this year! Get your boisterous niece or nephew a Nerf N Strike Elite so they can terrorise the rest of your family at the Christmas BBQ. A quirky Ride-On inflatable unicorn lounger for pretty much anyone you know with a pool (who on earth doesn’t love unicorns!?). A portable BBQ for mum/dad/partner so you can all enjoy sausages on the go and a cute beach seat for an optimistic parent (you know they’ll be chasing kids up and down the beach all summer long leaving that seat wide open…for you).
