Vintage Inspiration - Father's Day Special

Fathers Day in the UK this year fall on Sunday 21st June. With a couple of weeks to go, its around this time we all start wracking our brains for gift ideas that are a little more unique and out of the box. It is of course the thought that counts, but there are only so many Best Dad in the World mugs you can fit in one cupboard!

Whether its your dad, step-dad, grandad, partner or other paternal figure, it's lovely to have that one day that is just for them to feel appreciated and loved. The internet is full of gift ideas and website, but it tends to boil down to the usual run-of-the-mill options... Mugs, socks, gardening equipment, beers, chocolates and gadgets. So why not take the chance to buy something much more unique and unusual this year? Here at My Vintage we have more to offer the man in your life than clothing too, we have some other great gift ideas that are guaranteed to score you extra brownie points!

Let's take a look at some fantastic vintage ideas for that perfect Father's Day gift...


If Dad has a home office or has made a temporary one for the lockdown period, we have some great vintage items that will help him to add a touch of style to his surroundings and earn bragging rights on those Zoom calls.

This original 1970s rotary dial telephone is in perfect working order and looks great in the home or office. The neutral cream colour will tie in with any decor too. Click here or tap the pic for more details.

Perfect for any desk, this awesome anglepoise lamp is fully working and also has the benefit of being energy saving! The cool silver is perfect for any contemporary style and it's super practical too. Click here for more details or just tap the pic above.


If he's missing the pub, why not treat him to something from our retro barware and cocktail range for a little taste of the pub at home (a bag of dry roasted peanuts is an optional extra!)

We love these vintage 1960s shot glasses that are complete with their original box. Whether used for display to get that retro bar feel, or used for some serious shots; these are such a fantastic gift and o unique. Just tap the image or click here for more details.

Perhaps this retro Jack Daniels hip flask would make him smile! It's also a really affordable gift and one that will be kept for years if not decades to come. Click here or tap the image for more information or to buy.


If he's into looking good then we have some great male grooming gifts that will make him smile from perfectly preened and moisturised ear to ear.

A vintage male grooming kit always makes a wonderful gift. I've picked out this mid century one from our current selection as the tan leather case and silver aesthetic are perfect for most contemporary palettes. For more details just tap the image above or click here.

This vintage cologne bottle will look fantastic on a dressing table or as part of bathroom decor. A very cool accessory for the style conscious man. Tap the pic or click here to find out more.


If he is always snapping away of his phone, or finding the perfect angle of those flowers on your evening walk then perhaps a vintage camera would make an interesting gift for him to explore? I have picked a couple out from the selection we currently have in stock at My Vintage.

This 1970s vintage Kodak Instant camera is perfect for taking photos on the go without waiting for developing! Just tap the image to see more or click here.

Sticking with the retro seventies, this pocket camera is a great affordable option and looks super cool too! Click here to find out more or tap the image above.


If he loved old school gaming then we have a real treat! If you really want to spoil that special Dad in your life then this vintage 1980s Commodore computer is absolutely perfect...

Complete with it's original box, game, manual and accessories; this is a true collectors item and a thoroughly amazing present for any gaming lover. For more information or to buy, simply click here or tap the image above.

Of course we also have rails and rails of original vintage mens clothing to choose from if you fancy treating him to a new shirt or jacket. From 1960s mens fashion to 80s casuals and everything inbetween, we have lots to choose from.

If you really want to gift him something unique and different but just can't decide what to go for, why not buy him one of our My Vintage Gift Cards? These can be bought for any amount and can be used both on our website and in our shop when we re-open from the 15th June 2020. The digital gift card can be emailed direct to the lucky recipient on your chosen date, or sent to you to forward on yourself.

I hope you have found something perfect for the special father figure in your life this Father's Day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for all your support during this difficult and unusual lockdown period. You have been supporting us with your purchases, shares, likes and recommendations and we are truly grateful. Our customers are the best!
