Great gift ideas for Father’s Day
We’ll help you to find the perfect gift to make this Father’s Day a very special one for your dad…
Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 17, and if need a little help finding the perfect gift, then look no further.
We have a huge selection of gifts, and in a range of price brackets too, from Kindles and MP3 players to DVDs and accessories.
If your dad likes nothing better than losing himself in a good book the entry-level Kindle holds up to 1,400 books and the Kindle Keyboard up to 3,500 books, and with accessories like the Kindle e-book light from Belkin he’ll also be able to read in bed.
7 reasons your dad will love… the Amazon Kindle
1. Read anywhere The latest Kindle features the most advanced, 6-inch E Ink Screen yet. Unlike back-lit displays it reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
2. Light and ultra-compact The Kindle weighs in at under 170 grams – which is less than most paperbacks. It’s small enough for your dad to take anywhere and can even slide into the back pocket of his jeans for maximum portability.
3. Faster than ever Ready to use right out of the box, the latest Kindle uses Wi-Fi to rapidly download books. He’ll be able to connect to a network and start reading in just 60 seconds.
4. Great value At only £89 this is the best value Kindle ever. If you’ve been thinking about treating your dad an e-reader, there’s never been a better time to splash your cash.
5. A pocket library With 2GB of storage memory, the Kindle can store up to 1,400 titles (that’s one book a week for the next two years) so your dad will never be bored. You also have free Cloud backup so he never need worry about losing anything from his library.
6. Long battery life The rechargeable battery in the Kindle packs enough juice for your dad to be able to use it every day for a month without running out of power.
7. The big read With more than a million ebooks, newspapers and publications to choose from on Amazon, there’s plenty to keep Dad entertained. The list of available titles is constantly being updated, so he can use the on-screen keyboard to quickly search.

Other Father’s Day gift ideas
Sound and vision
This summer there’s a lot going on: Euro 2012 and of course the Olympics head up an amazing schedule of sport! Why not update your dad’s DVD player, or if he’s often on the move think about getting him a portable DVD player or a new TV.
DVDs are always a great gift idea and if you’re a Clubcard holder and buy a DVD or Blu-ray disc for your dad he will also be able to watch it on blinkbox! Check out the selection of titles available here.
If your dad prefers to tune in rather sit in, perhaps lounging in the garden with a BBQ, then this retro-style leather radio from Technika transmits crystal clear DAB broadcasts as well as traditional FM stations.
And if he doesn’t plan to move very far from his viewing spot, an Igloo Beverage fridge could help to keep him cool in the heat of competition!
Tesco Photo Centre
And don’t forget that photos always make thoughtful gifts and there’s plenty of choice at Tesco Photo Centre from greetings cards to photo books and canvases to skins for electronic devices.
Available in values from £1 to £100, he will be able to choose his own gift online or in store and even download his own music, films, TV and games!
