If your dad is anything like mine, then it will be a week until father’s day and he still won’t have a clue as to what he would like. To be honest this is a year long problem, the only one I don’t struggle with is Easter – chocolate egg, sorted! So if your dad is anything like mine, I’m hoping that this gift guide would be helpful to you (and secretly hoping it’s inspiration for me too!)
My dad’s dress sense used to be awful and my dad is definitely not a fashionista. BUT if your dad is then, why not check out the Chapman & Lewis edit collection. Seriously, that cashmere hoodie is lush. Jim has effortless simple style that is classic, timeless and I’m sure that there would be something in the collection perfect for dad.
If your dad is a tea lover, then this cute tea set from Victoria Mae Designs is a perfect gift for him! You could even push the boat out, with tea and maybe even breakfast in bed – just don’t try and climb over him for the perfect instagram shot. (Or do, it could be good fun!)
Going for afternoon tea is a great past time for anybody, I mean come on I’d be surprised if your dad doesn’t like cake! But perhaps you could find a really awesome location to have the afternoon tea such as Lords Cricket Ground or after a visit to The View at the Shard.
A day at the cricket can be a perfect day out so the Luxury County Match Day Hospitality Package at Lords Cricket Ground could be the perfect option. It is more expensive at £145pp but when you look at what you get included, you are getting more than just the cricket: tea & coffee on arrival, match ticket, tour of the ground, souvenir gift, scorecard, programme, lunch, glass of champagne and afternoon tea.
If your dad is a bookworm or a poetry lover then you could add a personal touch with this adorable poetry book from ReadPrintLove, featuring vintage illustrations from the British Library Archive. This is a unusual gift but personalised gifts are having a moment in time, and why not – they are timeless, thoughtful and this book is stunning!
You could treat dad’s pennies to a new home with this Nicolai Leather Saddle Wallet, simple and effective. Or if you dad is a rugby fan, this Mens adidas Team GB Home Rugby Shirt would be a good present idea.
If you are looking for something to do over the summer but as a staycation, why not get the tent out with a Family Ticket at Silverstone Classic on 29 – 31 July 2016. The ticket includes: free parking, two nights camping accommodation (no tent included), passes to all three days of the event for two adults and two children, free grandstand seating, free access to live concerts of Friday and Saturday night –acts include The Boomtown Rats, Reef and The Stranglers, unreserved access to two racing paddocks – where cars are prepped for racing, unlimited free fun fair rides, access to the shopping village.
I hope that this quick list helps you to find something to give or do with dad!
Much love xx
