Father's Day Gift Ideas

Good morning everyone!

Don't you just love it when you accidentally delete the entire start to a blog post that you actually really liked, so here is my attempt at rewriting it.

It's the 1st of June. Can you believe it's June already?! I hope you've all saved up your pennies since Mother's Day, which feels like just last month if not yesterday, because Father's day is just around the corner! In fact, it's on the 19th of June! You better get yourselves sorted because you have 18 days left!

All our dads are different so we all know that one present that is great for my Dad may not be good for yours so I'd like to give you a few ideas for every type of Dad, Daddy or Father. Or at least every type I can think of!

gifts, fathers day, celebration, mothers day, presents, dad, daddy, father, grandad, grandpa, cards, june 19th,

Lets start with the classic Father...

The Classic Father

On most gift sites that traditional father gift revolves around the classic business man: watches, cuff links, ties. I admit, you can't go wrong with a bit of suave and style but we know not every Dad is the business type. Every man likes to dress up in a suit every now and again though.

The Cute Daddy

This is a must for the young ones. How cute is it to see the little ones running up to their fathers, first thing Sunday morning with a ball of wrapping paper with an adorably cute pair of socks inside.

The Geek

My Dad is a geek. Star Trek to be exact, although I do often have full blown debates about Marvel movies and TV. That said, he'd probably watch the movie rather than playing Top Trumps and wearing the cuff links.

The Sports Dad

I'd say all dads like sport but my Dad would rather watch The One Show than the latest football game but I can't deny that I've learnt a lot from that programme! But most Dads do like sports especially if it means watching it with their boys.

The Golfer

Golf seems to be the sport that is ever increasing in popularity and without a doubt, a lot of our fathers are regular golfers. I say our like my Dad is but unfortunately when my parents moved to this town there was a very long waiting list at the local golf club!

The Rock Star Dad

This may be hinting on Rufus from Gossip Girl but we all know at least one Dad who teaches his kids how to play the guitar and longs to rock out on stage every night. Well why don't we make his dreams come true, or at least remind him of his dreams!

Beer Daddy

Definitely my Dad! He loves his beer, especially in a fancy glass, with a name like Corona. Buying him four bottles of Corona keeps him happy! Getting a beer related gift for your Father is both thoughtful and funny, so why not?

The Traveller Dad

Both of my parents love to travel, I wonder where I get it from, so travel related gifts go down a treat. Especially if it has anything to do with Mexico. Mexican rum and luggage tags are usually a good start.

Daddy Day Out

Now they might be more expensive but tickets to shows, football games or an exclusive Jaguar driving experience is something all Fathers would never think of but you'd be letting them live a dream and it will be a day they'd never forget!


Hope your Dads love your gifts and that you all have a great day! I know it's not quite yet but I won't actually be in the country, woop! Sorry Dad! He can't complain, he's in Mexico at the moment celebrating his 20th Wedding Anniversary with my Mum!


See you all later!
