Father's day gift ideas for engineers

It’s that time of year again where we thank our Dad’s for all they do for us. Struggling to think of presents is not an uncommon dilemma and if your dad happens to be an engineer, a simple t-shirt just won’t do. Morson has put together some extra special gifts that we think engineers will love:



Everyone loves a personalised gift, especially a useful personalised gift! This desk clock has a unique design and you are able to personalise it by adding a message to the front or inserting a photograph in the largest gear. A great addition to your office or workspace. 




This is one that your Dad is sure to love, how could he not?! This cool little invention shows the month and the day in a totally unique way. Once you have this calendar you have it for life as you simply move the magnetic balls to start a new date year on year. His biggest decision would be – does he want to show it off at work or keep it at home?



A tie is a Father’s Day stable in our eyes, but why not go an extra step further and pick up a Maths Formula tie from TiesPlanet.com. You can get them in a variety of colours, but we can’t guarantee the equations will be correct! 




One of our favourites from the whole collection, the 3Doodler Create is a 3D printing pen. Using this little gadget, “anything you can imagine will become a reality as soon as you draw it” as heated plastic filament comes out of the pen and cools almost instantly allowing you to create structures. Perfect for an artistic engineer!


This handy little multi-tool combines 14 different tools in one from pliers to a ruler and everything in between. The best thing about this gadget is that it’s so easily transferable so you can take it with you wherever you may be. It can even be used to crack open a cold beer! 




Last but not least, this quirky mug is a great addition to an engineer’s mug collection and is a definite conversation starter for the office.

We hope this blog has given you some Father’s Day gift inspiration, a few of these items are certainly on our wish lists! We wish you a happy Father’s Day!
