Father Day Gift Ideas

It is that time of the year again where we scratch our heads and ponder what on Earth to buy our beloved Dads for Father's Day. These wonderful men in our lives are notoriously tricky to buy for, they say they have everything they need, but we never do listen because this is the day to celebrate Dad's everywhere. So ponder no more and have a little browse of these Father's Day treats.

I did a post last year regarding Father's Day gift ideas, so if you have a father who is a foodie, movie buff, or you are stuck for a present from the little ones, have a little look at my original Fathers Day Gift Ideas and see what takes your fancy.  

Another great present is by Penwizard who have personalised books where you can even turn Dad into a character from Peppa Pig! You can have a peek at our finished personalised Penwizard book and see the book which was a big, big hit! Penwizard also have an offer at the moment where you can save £3 on books by using the code: MYDADDY at the checkout, and, if you order by 15th June they will guarantee delivery by Father's Day. 

Continuing with the personalised theme, I am loving this set of 6 personalised coasters by Boots photo.  We have just returned from New York with my parents, so I had some really great photos of us all.  I wanted something a bit different than framing the photographs or putting them on a canvas, so I designed these coasters with my photographs.  It's really quick and simple to do and the quality is fantastic. I ordered them on a Sunday and they were delivered by the Wednesday.  After comparing prices on the internet, these were also the cheapest as they were £9.99 for a set of six different photographs. I think these will be a big hit, and will hopefully bring a smile to my Dad's face when he sits down for his cup of tea.  Boots Photo currently have a 10% discount on all orders over £10 and will guarantee to deliver by Fathers Day if you order by Monday 15th June.  

For the keen gardener, how about this little gift hamper? I bought the box from the pound shop (amazing!), and then I just shopped around to fill it with little goodies.  Inside is a pair of leather gardening gloves, some garden twine, garden scissors and then some mints and chocolates.  I bought some 'Great British Gardener' ribbon from Hobbycraft to finish the gift and I am very pleased with the end result. Of course, you can add your own spin to this gift and include any goodies you like, but I think it looks like a thoughtful, yet very useful present!!! 

From the little ones you can't beat a bit of show casing their artistic talents which we all know should be displayed in an art gallery (hmmmm!). My daughter has been busy painting these giant rocks that will hopefully sit pride of place in her grandparents garden.  It's something a little bit different, but bright and colourful and personal too. This is for her Abuelo (grandfather) and she painted it in a Spanish theme! 

Hopefully that has given you some ideas and inspiration for Father's Day and if you have any great finds or ideas then please feel free to share in the comments below! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and see you on Monday for tales from San Francisco!
