With father’s day just over a month away (FYI 18th June), I’ve already started to pull together a few gift ideas. This year will be Ryan’s second father’s day and just like last year, I plan on making plenty of fuss. Of course there will be breakfast in bed. We’ll probably go out for some lunch and to Ryan’s delight there will be presents. If like me you’re planning ahead and are in need of some giftspiration, take a look at my Father’s Day Gift Guide.
For the Dad-to-be From Mummy’s Tummy Cotton Onsie – Etsy – £17
If your bun is still in the oven then don’t fret. You can still involve your other half in the father’s day fun. Inside this cute little package you’ll find a a cotton onsie with a special message for the soon to be Dad. I love the idea of getting prospective Papa’s involved and sending a little gift from your bump.
For the Dad whose Kid is Crazy about Peppa Pig Daddy Pig Adult’s T shirt – Etsy – £9.99
The world seems to have gone Peppa Pig mad – or is that just my house? If your kid is potty about the pink pig then why not treat Dad to his very own Daddy Pig T shirt? I’m sure he’ll really appreciate it!
For the Dad who Likes to Monkey Around Go Ape Gorilla Gift Voucher – Go Ape – £33
Is your better half a bit of a cheeky monkey? Recon he’d like to spend his day swinging through the trees like Tarzan? With 31 locations across the UK, it’s not your typical fathers day gift but it’s certainly one he’ll remember.
For the Dad who’s Footy Mad Season Ticket for his favourite club – Prices will vary (lets hope his team is in league 2)
OK so this gift requires signing away at least every weekend for the best part of a year but it’s also going to earn you some serious brownie points! If you can’t image forfeiting that many weekends then you could always buy him a few tickets for some home games. You might not earn as many brownie points but you’ll still trump the ‘world’s best mum’ mug he got you for mother’s day!
For the Dad who’s out of this World An Acre of Land on the Moon – Virgin Experience Days – £25
He may never get to visit his plot of land but at least he can say he owns a piece of the moo. Just incase he ever needs to prove ownership you’ll receive a copy of the moon deed, a copy of the the original declaration of ownership and the Lunar Bill of Rights – not really sure what that is but it sounds professional.
For the Dad who loves a Gin Personalised Hendricks Gin – Prestige Drinks – £46.79
Ryan isn’t a big drinker but he loves a Gin and tonic, something which he’s now less ashamed to admit now that Gin is very on trend. I enjoy a glass from time to time but I’m much less arsy about that Gin that goes in my glass. I opted to include the Hendricks Gin in my guide as it felt like a step up from the regular Gordan’s that we have lurking at the back of the cupboard, plus the bottle looks kind of fancy. However if Hendricks isn’t your cup of tea, Prestige Drinks have a wide veriety of Gins available. The majority of which you can personalise with your very own special message!
For the Dad who Leaves his Shit Laying Around Man tin – Getting Personal – £9.99
I’d do anything to help Ryan keep all his crap in one place. Although I’m not really sure if they make a tin large enough to store all the junk he keeps. If like me you’re done with the mess, stop nagging and buy him his very own man tin.
