I was just having an admin morning and whilst looking through my diary spotted that Father’s Day is on 17th June – I’m sure its not usually this early – is it? Anyway, it is just around the corner and I have been looking around to see what to gift on Father’s Day, which isn’t either a pair of novelty socks or a mug…so here is my edit.
Steak Night Cookery Course at The Woodspeen – this course is local to me (the chaps would learn how to cook the perfect steak and chips and then enjoy the result with a glass of wine) but there will be similar around the country…and this could be the course that keeps on giving with future Friday night suppers sorted.
Plaque by Fox & Weave – Fox & Weave do a variety of plaques which would look fab in a study or “man cave” (blurgh, I’m not a fan of that term…it sounds too basic and “loitery”). There are keyrings which would also be fun.
Papa Tee by Selfish Mother – for the relaxed Dad the sale of this tee also supports Prostate Cancer UK.
Valet Case by Cheaney – a love or hate gift but some find cleaning shoes therapeutic and if they’ve been in the army nothing beats a well shone shoe and why not do it in style?
Grow Your Own Cactus at Firebox – for the more “relaxed” gardener out there and something the kids will love to help with.
Classic Car Show Biscuit Tin by Biscuiteers – if I’m honest, I’m not sure how many of the biscuits the recipient will actually get to eat once the kids have insisted he “share” but aren’t they amazing?
Personalised Family Keyring by Merci Maman – Merci Maman are always good for personalised gifts and they have a good selection for Father’s Day including this keyring. The kids can have a say as to what is engraved to make it extra special.
Line Portrait Watercolour by Letterfest – I love the simplicity of these watercolours and the ease with which they can be commissioned. Simply send a photo and they take care of the rest.
Father and Son Matching Swim Shorts by Marks & Spencer – I wouldn’t usually encourage father and son matching outfits but swim shorts are adorable way to “twin” and they make great holiday photos!
