Father's Day Gift Ideas

With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought I should share some gift ideas with you. It's funny how we always joke about buying socks etc for every man in our life, but to be perfectly honest... they usually rely on us in this department and actually expect those little extras for every occasion :) haha. T-shirts, boxers, a bottle of their favourite aftershave or drink etc - these are always appreciated, aren't they? Here are my picks for this year.

This fragrance is absolutely beautiful and I don't see anyone disliking it. First of all, the packaging is very luxurious and sleek, with leather detail and a Ferrari logo on the cap. The scent is based around white musk with top notes of white grapefruit and green mandarin leaves, heart notes of nutmeg, white mint, water melon and lavender and a base of vetiver bourbon, amber, cedar and white musk. Lovely!

Daniel Wellington watches are becoming more and more popular and my personal favourite is the Classic Oxford Watch*. It looks very elegant on any wrist and I actually share this one with my husband. Pricey, but the quality is amazing!

Another gift you simply can't go wrong with is a pair of Ray Bans. Wayfarers and aviators are the most popular models, but I would personally opt for Wayfarers because they seem more sturdy. I feel like aviators are too delicate and I would be worried that my dad (or any guy really) would just damage them instantly :)

The Man Tin is something I got for my husband's work receipts and I am telling you - every guy needs one for their 'pointless bits and bobs'! It is cheap as chips (£6.98) and I got it on Amazon. 

And if your dad is a bit of a geek and enjoys taking things apart, he will love the Things Come Apart Book! The photographs in it are incredible and it is one of the best 'coffee table books' I have ever bought.

Do you have your Father's Day gift sorted yet?

  2. Great gift ideas! That watch is so cool - loving the colours.
    I have no idea what to buy for my dad yet as he is the most difficult person to buy for. I think maybe a 'Man Tin' might be useful though. :)

  3. Some great ideas, thanks for this I've been struggling on what to get him.
