Left your Father's Day gift idea to the last minute? Push the boat out and get him a new mobile, with next-day delivery in time for the big day.

Father's Day is fast approaching. How fast, you say? If it’s not on your radar, it should be. You've only got until Sunday 21st June to find something special.

At this late notice, what can you even get in time?

Getting a customary grilling or novelty office tie in time are both a gamble at this stage. A last-minute dash to the shops isn't necessarily gonna cut it, either.

You've probably guessed where we're going with this by now. Yes, we can offer you a solution if you're feeling especially generous towards your father this year.

Push the boat out and outdo your siblings by getting dad a new mobile phone that - if you act sharply - could be with you before Father's Day on Sunday. We've even come up with the best mobile suggestions depending on what type of dad you have. Yes, we know, we're very good like that.

The Socialite

If your dad’s constantly browsing, streaming, video chatting or just simply unable to put his phone down, it's a sure thing that he needs one with a battery that goes on and on.

Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to upgrade him. If you’re working to a more modest budget, the powerful but affordable iPhone SE and Samsung Galaxy S10 could be your best two options.

Both mobiles have cameras that more than meet expectations, especially considering the low cost of these two devices. On top of that, you're guaranteed to get software updates for some time yet, bringing new features to freshen up your experience.

The Tech Lover

Buying a Father's Day gift for a tech-savvy dad can be quite tricky, because, let’s face it, his standards and expectations are sky-high.

If he’s Team Apple, then look no further than iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max. They’re simply the most powerful iPhones on the market right now.

On the other hand, any dad’s affiliated with Team Android should be spoiled with a Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus 5G or S20 Ultra 5G if you really want to get in his good books.

The Fitness Fanatic

Got an active dad that just won’t ever sit still? Make his Father’s Day with a new smartwatch that’s as mad on fitness as him.

Right now if you buy a Huawei P40 5G or P40 Pro 5G, you can claim a free Huawei Watch GT 2 usually worth £199. Or if you want to spend a little less but still get a great smartwatch for free, buy a Huawei P30 Pro New Edition to claim a free Watch GT 2e, worth £159.

Both are designed for GPS tracking and outdoor runs, and also boast features like Bluetooth calling, in-device music, message notifications, sleep tracking and more.

Best of all, they’re absolutely free with the aforementioned Huawei mobiles. Your dad will never know!

The Film Buff

If your dad loves to stream movies and TV shows whenever he gets the chance, what could be better than giving him easy and free access to his favourite content, right from his mobile.

Amazon Prime Video and BritBox are two of the hottest streaming services right now, and get this, EE is offering free access to either one on its new Smart Plans.

EE calls this Swappable Benefits, and lets you pick and choose what you want, changing any time you fancy. So if dad binges his way through every boxset on BritBox in record time, simply swap it for Amazon Prime Video – at no extra cost – to keep the show going.

If these aren't quite hitting the sweet spot for you, maybe something else will. We have a tonne of unmissable mobile phone deals that are, we're pretty sure, dad-approved. And remember, free next-day delivery on your order means it might not be too late...
