Father’s day is on the horizon (Sunday June 21st in case you didn’t know) so if you’re looking for some inspiration I’ve put together a little tongue in cheek gift guide, including a range of cheap and cheerful to more expensive goodies. Hopefully there’ll be something here to suit a variety of budgets and please all Dads no matter what they’re into!
Anchorman Hip Flask (£9.99) Every Dad should own a hip flask for ’emergencies’. Printed with ‘I love Scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes, down into my belly,‘ this Ron Burgundy stainless steel hip flask would make the perfect gift for any Anchorman fan. Maybe buy a bottle of whiskey to go with it if you’re feeling generous!
Scaramouche & Fandango Bath Set (£13.50) Dads can often get sweaty when they’re out and about doing manly things like painting fences, press ups and DIY. Help your Dad stay smelling sweet with this handy set from Scaramouche & Fandango. Containing a 200ml shampoo and 200ml body wash, the shampoo includes detoxing shea butter and black quinoa to remove excess oils and dirt from the hair, while Keravis protein helps keep hair strong and healthy, protecting against day-to-day pollution. The body wash contains Brazilian Papaya, to remineralise the skin, and Vitamin E to provide anti-inflammatory and protective benefits to the skin.
Fred Perry Marl Crew Neck Knit (£49.00) Every Dad should own a smart fine knit jumper, and this one by Fred Perry is perfect, it’s grey, which is a favourite colour of Dad’s because it reminds them of battleships and metal tools, and it’s also in the sale, so you’ll have money left over to buy your lovely Dad some extra gifts too.
Champion Dad Trophy (£3.50) Make your Dad feel like the champion he is with this high quality real plastic gold tone trophy. All the other Dads will be jealous when they see your Dad got a trophy for Father’s day!
(£59.98) And something for the trendy Dad, this army green jumper would be perfect for a smart / casual look with jeans. Dads famously hate clothes shopping, so why not give him a helping hand and snap this up for him!
N.10 Corkscrew knife (£26.50) I mean what could be more ‘Dadly’ than a pocket knife? With a corkscrew!? This is a basic Dad-gadget that every Dad should own. This fancy one has a nice wooden handle. Dads will appreciate the craftsmanship on this beauty.
(£59.50) A jumper for the country Dad. If your Dad likes to romp around in the sticks, maybe with a rifle and wax jacket, he’ll be thrilled with this Barbour sweatshirt. It’s smart yet practical, definitely a staple for any Dads wardrobe.
Holkham Country Fair Tickets (from £15.00) If you fancy getting your Dad something a little different for Father’s Day, what about Holkham Country Fair tickets? I think this is a great idea, the Holkham Country Fair is a magnet for Dads, with over 200 trade, fine food and craft stands showcasing rural crafts and country pursuits, as well as stunt men, clay pigeon shooting, fishing and target golf. Your Dad would be thrilled to receive tickets for this event.
Neal & Wolf Sculpt & Style Duo (£20.95) Does your Dad like to style his hair? If he doesn’t have a balding bonce like my Dad, your should treat him to some fancy hair products from Neal & Wolf. The Sculpt & Style Duo contains Form Sculpting Lotion which has been designed to help shape and hold the look you want with added benefit of head-turning texture and stunning shine. And Shape Pliable Paste which is as texturing paste that gives an outstanding strong hold that improves definition and is perfect for shorter styles.
I hope this has given you some inspiration and raised a smile! xxx
