I cannot believe it is already almost the end of May and I’m preparing this Father’s Day gift guide! This year my lovely husband is recovering from a dog attack, and is looking at quite a few more months recuperating at home before he can return back to work.
With this in mind I’ve tried to select items that are either suitable for him to use one handed, or are there for when he’s on the mend. There are some lovely sweet treats and goodies, plus a few items that are nice to have. Hopefully this gift guide will give you a little nudge to find the perfect gift for your loved one.
Every year I am astounded at how fast the year is going, but this one feels even faster, probably because of how chaotic things have felt the last month in particular.
Our daughters are now 7 and 2. Daisy, 7, wants to be involved in selecting gifts for her Dad, which is lovely to see. She’s such a thoughtful girl and really loves to be involved in gift giving for other people.
Anyway – to the gift guide we go!
If your Dad is a one-in-a-million, and you just want to let him know how special he is to you, then the Father’s Day Luxury Hamper from Lottie Shaws is the perfect gift.
This stunning hamper comes packed with Lottie’s Parkin biscuit box, a rich traditional fruit cake, cherry almond flapjack, oat flapjack, triple chocolate biscuits, millionaire shortbread and a box of fudge. You can select a gift card and even add a gift message when you check out.
These Birkenstock sandals are perfect for any Father. Sturdy, comfortable to wear and durable too. They have two adjustable buckles, to help get the perfect fit, and they are even available in half sizes too to ensure they’re just right.
Birkenstock arizona sandals have a comfortable suede lining to the footbed and are lightweight too. I personally already own a pair of Birkenstocks and they’re so comfortable. I’ve been wearing them for a couple of Summers now and they fit like a glove! These are the perfect men’s sliders!
The Mocktails range is absolutely perfect for the Sober Curious Dad, or those who are unable to drink. Premium, award-winning, ready-to-drink canned mocktails – featuring cute puns in the name too. Buy now from Amazon.
These 200ml cans are the perfect size for talking to family barbecues and delicious served over ice. Also, say one is 100% natural and low in calories too, so ideal if your Father is looking to be extra healthy this Summer.
This super cute chalk style photo coaster is the perfect gift for people on a slightly smaller budget. You can add a photograph, to personalise it, as well as a message. Best of all, if you’re leaving it to the last minute, then you can click and collect from Max Spielmann in just 1 hour!
They have over 300 stores across the UK and my own local Asda has one – which I did not know until I placed my order.
Swizzels, the nation’s favourite sweet manufacturer, has launched its first ever Chocolate Coin. Which is part of the Love Hearts range. For just £2.49 you can order a ‘FOR YOU’ chocolate coin, ideal for sharing with your loved one either for Father’s Day or just because.
Swizzels have a range of delicious sweets to choose from and you can even order a personalised Sweet Shop Favourites gift box – perfect for Dads with a sweet tooth who find it hard to choose just one favourite.
For gin loving AND sweet loving Dads the Manchester Drinks Company has a lovely selection of refreshing gin liqueurs at very affordable prices in the flavours Parma Violet, Mystical Unicorn (candy floss and marshmallows!) or Rhubarb and Ginger. These are available from Home bargains for just £7.99 per 500ml.
This is a perfect refreshing drink to make a cocktail this Summer and ideal for Dads who love gin but also have a sweet tooth.
With the warmer weather approaching now is the perfect time to help your Father have a little wardrobe refresh. This Helly Hansen men’s logo full zip hoodie is perfect for Dad’s who are active on the water. It has a ribbed hem and sleeve cuffs, making it perfect for wearing at the beach while drying off from water sports or even just on the chillier Spring evenings when enjoying being outdoors.
Team with the Calshot quick-dry swimming trunks and you’ve got a winning combination. These trunks are made from quick dry polyamide fabric with an elasticated waistband. They can be adjusted from the inside and even have pockets with a mesh lining too.
The 40v cordless grass trimmer, from Vonhaus, is efficient, simple to use and quick to build. It comes with a telescopic pole, which adjusts from 96.5cm-131.5cm making it perfect for all different heights.
The handle is adjustable and has a soft grip, making it comfortable to use when streaming your grass. The head has a great cutting angle, and at 4.1kg its lightweight. It comes with a double line spool making it easy to feed out the line.
What better way to help your loved one relax than with a nice candle. The Copenhagen Company have a delightful range of candles, diffusers and room sprays.
This Enjoy the Silence medium candle has a range of fragrance notes including patchouli and leather alongside pink pepper which is the perfect compliment to the musk and moss comforting base. This is a great size candle for the money and the smell is absolutely wonderful when it’s burning.
The *MagLoop, from STM Goods, is a 3-in-1 phone propper, grabber and bottle popper. It works with the MagSafe feature of the iPhone and uses the power of magnets to snap securely onto the back of your phone.
This is a great little item for the tech mad Dad in your life, as it works as a finger loop, a kickstand for watching TV on the move or while laying in bed, and even works as a bottle opener too.
There you have it! All the goodies that my lovely husband is receiving for Father’s Day this year! I’ve tried to go with genuinely loved and useful products and treats. I can’t wait to share the sweets with Thomas too, as I’m sure Daisy would agree with also!
