Father's Day is on Sunday 21st June this year and is so nearly upon us! I am really excited as this will be Luke's first Father's Day and so I have been trying to find something lovely for Jake to give him as a gift.
Searching high and low means that I have come across some really lovely ideas for all different budgets, and thought I may as well save some of you the hard work!
Here's our gift guide to 2015's Father's Day....
I am in love with this Instagram shop which is run by a lovely lady called Gemma.
Gemma's great product is a spotty sensation, and I'm sure it won't be long before she is up and running on sites such as Etsy or NotHS.
Great for those of us on a budget, Say it with Spots offers a range of mugs, plates, glasses and bowl with personalised spotty messages. I personally love the 'Happy 1st Father's Day' ones. The range start from around £6 - can't argue with that!
These gorgeous personalised 'Best Dad' cards are a really lovely idea and so individual. They come beautifully presented and with a very cute box to store them in. At £13 I think they are a great bargain.
Of course... you could make you're own at home - which would be even more personalised - especially if your little ones can write/ stencil.
A lovely gift for a man is a rugged, masculine piece of jewellery. My hubby wears only one accessory - his wedding ring. He doesn't wear a watch, rings, studs, tattoos or bracelets. I think something meaningful like this engraved piece would be a definite for any dads out there who perhaps want something sentimental whilst retaining that 'blokey-ness' :)
At £49 I think this is a good value product. There are many others out there at a sensible price. Your local jeweller may be able to offer something too.
If the Daddy in your life is someone who likes unique, individual and quirky gifts - then this one is for you. It is a tremendous keepsake, which offers something so individual and meaningful. At £14.95 the Gift Box is a handmade, miniature letter keepsake which provides a great alternative to a regular greeting card. All items within your gift are beautifully wrapped with tissue paper and presented in a Little Letter gift box, tied with ribbon.
- a collection of tiny items, all of which have a special sentiment attached to them, (details of which can be seen in the product images). ·
- a miniature letter detailing the special items within your kit. ·
- a miniature envelope which includes a tiny postmark dated 21st Jun 2015 (Father's Day), a perforated stamp and wax seal. ·
- a small but sturdy magnifying glass to read your special message.
As a massive Star Wars fan, I know Luke would really appreciate this matching set for Jake and him to wear. At £19.99 I think that's quite a reasonable price for something novelty and fun. Other styles are available too.
Another lovely gift for a daddy who's sentimental and likes to look back on things he may have done with his little ones. This Dear Dad Journal is sweet, unique and beautifully designed. I particularly like the cover design artwork. At £12.50 it is affordable - and will be entirely personalised by the messages included by yourself/your child.
Father's Day has to involve something naughty and tasty, and what better than a scrumptious personalised cake from Bakerdays? They have a huge selection of designs to choose form, which can be personalised for the Daddy in your child's life. Plus - you'll get to share some too :)
That's it for my gift guide - 7 x affordable ideas for the man in your little one's life. Don't forget - you could handmake a whole host of these ideas and put your own family's little spin on it.
Happy shopping xx
