Fathers Day Gift Guide*

Men are always so difficult to buy for, or so I think anyways. But why should we just settle for the same old socks, chocolate and after shave when Mam's always get spoiled?! I'm sure Dads would appreciate a thoughtful or sentimental gift too, no matter how much of a manly man. So whilst searching for a little something for my own Dad for Fathers Day I decided to make a list of all the cool ideas, maybe for future reference or inspiration for others. 
Anyway, let me know what you think and if anything, what you'd pick for your #1 man!


Buff Gentleman's Wash Set  - Smellies are a safe bet, but handmade using natural, organic ingredients with fabulous packaging and tailored for a hardworking man (being warming for the muscles and stimulating whilst cleansing) I thought this was an awesome idea for my Dad. He works very hard in a manual job and I think this would be lovely in a bath after a long day to help his aching muscles!
Personalized Copper Wallet Insert - I love anything personalized and your very own words on a beautiful copper card for Dad to see every time he uses his wallet would be a lovely keepsake, letting him know how much you love him all the time.
Travel Chef BBQ Set - It seems to be a stereotype that men are always the cooks at BBQs and my Dad fits right into that. We sometimes go to family friends houses and the men grill together. This travel BBQ apron and tool set would be a really cool accessory to whip out!
Personalized Leather Bracelet - Another sentimental keepsake though maybe something that would be seen more. Not all men are jewelry wearers but my Dad likes these leather type bracelets for going on holiday so I hope he'd wear it with pride :)
Personalized Wash Bag - To store all those lovely smellies in!
Sea Drift Soaps Ultimate Grooming Kit - For the bearded and mustached. I love this! I'm a sucker for aesthetics and I think this looks so awesome, especially the packaging. If you have a hairy Dad (haha) who is passionate about his facial hair this would be a lovely gift.
Personalized Whiskey Barrel - My Dad likes whiskey on the odd occasion, again personalizing anything makes it so much cooler!
Handmade Beer Caddy - Another item that would come in handy at BBQs...!
Football Themed House Plaque - Something I actually got my Dad for Christmas but I thought it was a fab idea and wanted to include it. Of course this is a Newcastle one and I suggest you get that but maybe check if your Dads favorite team does them first...:P



There we have it. Just a few things I loved as manly gift ideas! What do you reckon? Have you gotten your Dad anything yet..? Remember Fathers Day is Sunday 15th of June. Don't miss it!

  2. I got my dad a new briefcase for Father's Day! He has always had a love for them and since he has had two computers, work and personal, I thought a second case would be perfect for him! :) Love all of theses ideas too. I am always for things that are personalized<3
