MAIDEN on Shoreditch High Street has a wonderful selection of gifts and cards which are perfect for Fathers' Day.

The BICYCLE BIBLE is great for Dad's who like to cycle. It's a compact, tough notebook designed with the cyclist in mind. The cover is made from 100% recycled bike tyres so there's minimal chance of it getting battered in transit. Inside there is a mix of plain and lined pages to write notes on, as well as pages of handy information on bicycle maintenance.

If your Dad is constantly jangling loose change around in his pocket then the CAPITALIST PIG piggy bank might just be the present for him. This cute piggy bank has a clever chalkboard covering which means that it can be endlessly scribbled on with the chalk provided.

The HANDLEBAR MOUSTACHE corkscrew and bottle opener would make a really nice gift for any fuzzy faced dad out there! It's the most stylish way to open a beer or uncork a bottle of wine. Perfect if your Dad likes a tipple or three!

For a random, yet totally awesome Fathers' Day gift look no further than the HIPPO EGG CUP . The lovely ceramic egg cup is modelled on the distinctive features of a Hippopotamus.

If your Daddy likes to use his tablet or iPad in bed then the ingenious iPAD iBED would be a welcome and useful addition to his collection of handy gadgets.

If your Papa's phone is forever running low on battery then MR BOOST might well be the answer to his prayers. Mr Boost is a brand new device; a portable USB charger for smartphones, cameras, tablet devices and MP3 players.

The TINY TIM booklight is great for Dad's who love to read!

The hilarious VIDEO NOTEBOOK is a fab retro gift for your Dad and will remind him of all the chewed up video tapes he had to pull out of the VCR back in the day!
