What's your dads Pingit persona?

As we brace ourselves for a weird, socially-distanced summer, it's time to celebrate the papas, dons and daddios keeping us all going with their rubbish jokes, banging BBQs, and, er, solid dance moves.

To help you treat the big man this year, we're offering up to 40% off a selected range of devices – designed to make paying more seamless and dad-stress-free than ever before. Read on to discover your Papa Bear's Pingit persona – and find him the perfect practical payment gift this Father's Day.

The “Business Guy" Dad

Perfect gift: Pingit coffee cup

This dad has places to go, and people to see – but first, coffee, right? Make his morning fix bright and breezy with our refillable contactless cup. Dad can now go do all his business guy stuff without having to fumble for cash and cards, leaving him time to get to The Big Meeting faster so he can do That Thing He Does (if you're honest with yourself, you're still not 100% sure).

Suits you sir: Suitable for hot and cold drinks, our contactless cup has an anti-spill screw lid, and is double walled to ensure dad keeps his shirt clean and coffee-free for The Big Meeting.

The “Dad's Taxi" Dad

Perfect gift: Contactless key fob

Did you know that dads spend an average of one hour 23 minutes each week waiting around to pick their kids up? A 2013 study found that UK parents were doing more than 207 million miles a week ferrying their kids a week around – around £55.40 in taxi fares. For all those afternoons at the skate park, 4am pick-ups in town and all the airport runs still to come, if you've spent a lifetime hitching rides in your dad's cab, it's time to pay up.

Whether he's a classic, understated kind of guy, or a leopard-print legend, we've partnered with luxe leather accessories brand Tovi Sorga to offer payment keyrings to suit all personalities. Bob may be your uncle, but dad is the real winner – able to tap and pay in a flash with his permanently-in-hand set of keys wherever he sees the contactless symbol.

Suits you sir: Dad with a colourful personality? The standout 'Play' design Key Ring could be the key to his heart.

The “Still Got It" Dad

Perfect gift: Contactless bracelet

He's not a regular dad, he's a cool dad… Perfect for pairing with the tattered surfer bracelets and festival wristbands of days gone by, our wristbands and leather-bracelets are sure to make your still-got-it dad the envy of his pals as they head to their first gig post-lockdown. With designers Hirsch, Tovi Sorga and K-Pay in the mix, you have loads of options when it comes to choosing the wristlet right for your dad. Designed using materials such as K-Pay's Oxford Cushion (brass with rhodium plating) and Italian leather, he can make purchases direct from his device whenever he sees the contactless symbol – and look suitably cool and nonchalant while he does it.

Suits you sir: We're keen as mustard for the Hirsch Bracelet in Ochre.

The “Start Without Me" Dad

Perfect gift: Contactless designer watch

Got you a dad who doesn't really “use" time? Characteristically last, but by no means least, our range of partner timepieces are the perfect gift for dads who need a little help getting their act together. From Hugo Boss to Timex, these Pingit-enabled watches let Dad pay in style, while reminding him that he has places to be, like, say, your graduation ceremony or his grandchild's birthday party. Like other Pingit wearables, a simple tap of the wrist will do wherever the contactless symbol can be seen.

Suits you sir: Our most popular seller, we've got a lot of time for the Hugo Boss black and with 40% off you have no time to waste.
