Gift Guide: Fathers’ Day Ideas…

It won’t be long to Fathers’ Day, a day that I won’t forget this year as it has fallen on my birthday. So, in our house I have cancelled Fathers’ Day and it will all be about me…Ha Ha!

I thought I would share a few ideas for anyone struggling to think of a gift. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to buy for men.

You can’t go wrong with a nice wallet, I know that Andy’s never last long and he can always do with a new one. I like this one from NEXT £25


Socks, a bit of an obvious choice, but we are like every other household and they just seem to vanish in the wash. I thought these socks from Seasalt Cornwall looked cute. They are made from soft and breathable bamboo that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. £35 for a box of seven pairs.

Andy works from home a couple of days a week and has claimed our study as his own man cave. These frames from Another Mans Treasure would be a great addition. They have several different choices and are all handmade. They have small frames from £45

A nice bottle of wine to drink when the children go to bed. Andy isn’t a wine drinker, so for him it would be a couple of bottles of larger. I found this personalised pint glass that would make an ideal gift from Getting Personal £9.99.


I also have my lovely dad to buy for too…

Check out these glass cases from Which Glasses are Which. I remember my grandad having two pairs of glasses for different things and having a sticker on the glass case so he knew which was which. Well, these cases solve that problem with their great designs you know instantly which glass case has which glasses in. They have cases for Reading, Driving, Music, Sewing and Knitting, TV and Gardner’s, all priced at £12.95.




You also can’t beat chocolate as the perfect gift, my dad loves Quality Street and they are always a winner.

What ideas do you have for Fathers’ Day gifts?

    Some great ideas. I haven’t even thought about father’s day so I’ll probably be back to read this again for inspiration the day before father’s day 😉

    My girls bought their Dad a wallet last year and made their own vouchers to put inside it. Things like a washing the car voucher, a cup of tea in bed voucher and even a cuddle voucher! It made it a bit more personal and they had great fun making them.

    Thanks for your fab ideas.

    Fab ideas for fathers day! Totally agree, men are so hard to buy for, especially if they’ve pretty much got everything or dont particularly need/want anything. I havent even started thinking about fathers day this year so this post is very handy! Thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Emily

    I’d completely forgotten it was Father’s Day coming up, oops! You’ve picked some great items out that my other half would also really like. I only bought Alex some socks a few months ago and there are so many missing, it’s actually ridiculous and I don’t understand it at all. Alex also goes through wallets so quickly and the one he has at the moment is from Next and seems to be lasting reasonably well.

    Thanks for linking up with #TheWishlistLinky.

    My husband is quite the opposite and gives me a list of what he wants, this year it’s a herb rack thingy from M&S. But I like to get him a surprise too – thanks for the ideas!
