Father's Day is an extra special day for us because 2yrs ago we found out we were pregnant with Little I on Father's Day morning.
I'm not sure I'll ever top that Father's Day gift for Husband but I'm always on the look out for the perfect present for him, my Dad and Father in Law. They are impossible to buy for! If you are bored with buying socks and 'Best Dad' mugs then take a look at my gift guide for some great ideas:
Baldwins Men's Range Gift Box £34.99
Because Dad deserves a bit of pampering too! This gift set from Baldwins is beautifully presented and contains a selection of Green Tea and Frankincense facial products. Facial wash, exfoliator, shaving oil and facial lotion plus a natural cotton face towel; everything he needs to keep his face in tip top condition.
Baker Ross Father's Day craft range from £1.99
Kids making a gift for Dad can be extra special and younger children really get a kick out of creating mini masterpieces. Baker Ross do a selection of great, reasonably priced Father's Day craft projects from colour your own Dad's face cards to handprint keepsakes. Little E is particularly looking forward to painting a wooden DAD sign for Husband to hang on his shed.
This How to Draw Pokemon book is perfect for Dad's to spend some time with their kids drawing some of their most loved Pokemon characters with the kids (or without them if they are big kids themselves!) read the full info here
Make a Bar Chocolate Factory £3.99
Keeping with the homemade theme, kids can make a personalised chocolate bar for dads with a sweet tooth using the Make a Bar Chocolate Factory. Simply melt the 'ready to use' chocolate pouch in some warm water, pop it in the re-usable mould, refridgerate and then decorate with a message for Dad! Fantastic, the only risk is that it may not make it to Father's Day...
Ted Baker M Eau de Toilette Gift Set £14.99
Sometimes you just can't beat giving a nice aftershave! Ted Baker M is one of my favourite scents on Husband and this little gift set is great because it contains a 30ml Eau de Toilette, 100ml body wash and 100ml aftershave balm all for £14.99! The box is pretty cool too...
Available exclusively from The Perfume Shop
Braun CruZer5 Clean Shave £89.99
Husband leaves for work far too often with bits of tissue stuck on his face from shaving with my disposable razors. It has to stop! This nifty little electric razor clean shaves even 3 day stubble with ease using it's triple action float system (I'm not sure what that is but it sounds like magic and, most importantly, works!)
Currently you can find this half price at argos.co.uk making it a real bargain at around £45. Find out more at braun.com
Vileda Windowmatic £49.99
Growing up my Dad was obsessed with cleaning the car. Every weekend without fail he was out on the driveway buffing up our Vauxhall Cavalier until it shone. He's still the same now. He'd love the Vileda Windowmatic because not only does he love cleaning his car, he loves a gadget. The lightweight, cordless Windowmatic sucks dirty water away from the car windows and screens leaving a streak free finish. And when he's finished it'll still have enough charge for him to pop over and clean my car too, my front room windows could do with a once over too.
Available from Argos, Amazon, Tesco and at vileda.com/uk
Lego Superman LED keychain £6.99
Everyone thinks their Dad is a superhero. So let him know how you feel with with this fun Lego key chain. It features a little Lego Superman with posable light up legs - perfect for looking under the car bonnet, finding the right key on a dark night or playing disco with the toddler on Sunday afternoon. A super key chain for a Super Dad.
Available from Toys R Us and Amazon.co.uk
