The ultimate Father’s day gift guide

The ultimate Father’s day gift guide

It is Father’s Day on June 19th and, although it is not all about the gift, I’m sure most you are looking to buy your Dad a little something to show him how special he is. I don’t know about you, but the men in my life are rubbish when it comes to giving ideas for gifts they may like. I’m always met with the same response of either ‘I don’t want anything’ or ‘I don’t care’. It can be so frustrating, especially when you don’t have a clue what to buy and you really want to treat them.  For anyone else who has a Dad or husband declaring they don’t want anything for Father’s Day (and I’m betting secretly that they do!) I have put together the ultimate Father’s Day gift guide to try and give you some inspiration.

Whatever your Dad is in to, I’m sure there is at least one gift on this list he would be grateful to receive this Father’s Day, along with a cup of tea is his favourite mug of course. I hope you find something here that will make your Dad smile.

    I like how personalize your gift guide is. There are some really cool items. I keep hearing about Not on High Street and it sounds like it has some really great gift ideas. I think my favorite was the food basket. Thanks for sharing! #KCACOLS

    Fathers’ Day is cancelled in our house because its fallen on my birthday!! Great ideas, I love those golf balls, my girls would love to give them to daddy. I want that popcorn for myself x #TheList

    • Wendy
      June 10, 2016 / 7:51 pm

      Haha, birthday taking priority..I don’t blame you! I know, I love the golf balls too. Maybe you should suggest the popcorn machine as an extra birthday present?xx

  3. June 11, 2016 / 12:11 am

    This is a fab list, so many ideas it’s hard to pick out some pressies for the Dads in our lives. I think my hubby would like any of the beer orientated ones along with a day in front of the TV watching rugby. #PicknMix

    • Wendy
      June 11, 2016 / 2:48 pm

      Haha, beer and rugby make my hubby happy too and my Dad actually xx

    Some fab ideas here! Love that outfit, really stylish. Last year I made a jar of “Daddy and Dylan” ideas. I might tweet a pic of it as an easy cheap homemade idea @moneysavermum #fortheloveofBLOG

    Why do men always say they don’t know what they want or that they don’t want anything? So annoying! I find men really hard to buy for so I put together a similar post myself. I love your suggestions and range of price options here! I reckon my other half would love the personalised golf tees bag! Thanks for sharing with us on #fortheloveofBLOG

  10. June 13, 2016 / 9:27 pm

    That is quite an extensive list. I however think that going for the big hug at the end will be our route this year, R isn’t even 1 yet. I’ve made a card for him from him! #MG

    • Wendy
