At the Strategist UK, we love unearthing a good deal, and this Father’s Day is no exception. We’ve already found the best gifts for £20 and under as well as the best for £10 and under. But if your dad’s tastes err on the fancier side, don’t fret. We’ve found 19 surprisingly affordable gifts from typically expensive brands, including an Aēsop lip balm, some wallet-friendly Smythson thank-you cards, and a tiny Le Creuset that costs far less than a big-ticket Le Creuset.

For the dad who is into both vinyl and cult-y menswear brands.

Compared to the brand’s £260 correspondence cards, these are an absolute steal.

This tiny Le Creuset can hold snacks or, thanks to the lid, reheat sauces in the oven (it’s also a fraction of the price of a normal-size one).
