Star Wars Light Sabre Bottle Opener
Sometimes you only have to write out the product title to know it’s going to be awesome. To quote one online review of this device: “It is a light sabre that opens beer, what’s not to like?”.
Not only that, but when you open the bottle of beer, the light sabre makes a loud, authentic ‘swoosh’ sound. This present is so great, you’re going to have to buy 2 of them for Father’s day. “OK Darth, you’re my father. But it’s my turn to crack open the beers…”Shop now on Amazon

Star Trek Original Phaser Universal Remote Control
Can something be too cool for dad? This Star Trek Phaser universal remote strokes the geek G-spot in so many ways. Its official licence from CBS Studios means that the product was 3D modelled from an original prop – and features 10 of the exact phaser sound effects used in the TV series and movies.
The remote control is not only programmable but can recognise gestures – 9 in total which in combination with the trigger and rotation selector combine to control 36 different functions.
The replica comes in 2 parts, the original small phaser Mark 1 (which looks like a 60s ancestor of today’s TV remote) and the pistol gripped Mark 2. Both parts can be used separately or docked together.
The final father’s day flourishes are the fact that it provides tactile feedback and LED muzzle flashes when in use. Mum will be grateful that there is a silent ‘stealth’ mode, too. Oh and nifty presentation case to hide it away when Dad’s out of the house.Shop now on Tesco Direct
Anki Overdrive Starter Kit
Your dad probably has fond, rose-tinted memories of Scalextric slot car racing back in the day. But has conveniently forgotten the frustration of burnt out cars, impossible corners, won-out brushes and elusive breaks in the track electrical connection that typified a Scalextric session in the 70s and 80s.
Anki takes the fun of competitive model car racing and adds wonderful new layers of smartphone savvy. The cars now have sensors and cameras that let them ‘learn’ the track layout, so giving you more options such as weapons and countermeasures rather than just concentrating on cornering. Everything controlled via Bluetooth from your iOS or Android device.
You can also have computer-controlled NPC cars to add extra fun to the father-son bonding or even allow solo practice.
This upgraded Anki Overdrive – allows you to roll your own tracks from various corners and straights. Just like old school Scalextric. This will be the gift that keeps on giving – for both you and your lucky dad.Shop now on Very.co.uk
Philips HD 3620/25 PerfectDraft Beer dispenser
Imagine perfectly chilled and poured draft beer, literally on tap in your living room. That’s what the Perfect Draft system, developed by Philips and InBev, promises. And it delivers – at a price.
The HD 3620/25 will only work with bespoke 6-litre kegs, so forget about the 5-litre ones you can pick up down the supermarket for a tenner. The Perfect Draft kegs will set you back £30 or more, plus delivery. Which means your perfect pint will cost you upwards of £3 a pop.
(You can buy 4 kegs at a time and save a bit more – but at £100 including delivery it’s still far from cheap).
Still, quality costs. And this is certainly top quality quaffing. But remember to pre-chill your beer kegs – otherwise it’s a 12-16-hour wait to chill the beer to the required 3-degrees.Shop now on Amazon

How it Works Ladybird Book: The Dad
The classic Ladybird books of the 60s and 70s have been updated by Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris in a slyly funny series called Ladybirds for Grown Ups.

UE Roll 2 Water Resistant Bluetooth Speaker
The UE Roll 2 speaker may look diminutive, but looks can be deceptive: this Bluetooth speaker packs some serious sonic punch.

The battery life is excellent too – we got a full 9 hours off a single charge. That’s plenty of time for dad to dance himself to sleep.Shop now on John Lewis
