Hello lovelies! How’s everyone’s week been? This week I’ve been busy at work, making a start on some college work, re-jigging my bedroom furniture and sorting out my Dad’s Father’s Day present. Which brings on today’s post! Father’s Day is right around the corner, so I’ve put together a short and snappy list of five thoughtful gift ideas!
I don’t know where I’d be without such a great role model and supportive figure in my life. I’m very lucky that I have a great relationship with my dad and he’s always been there for me. Which is why I always try and find him the perfect meaningful gift on Father’s Day.
So, let’s get straight into it!
1 . Personalised favourite drink or glass – If your dad has a favourite drink they don’t buy themselves very often you could buy them a bottle of it and see if you can get it personalised or you could get them a personalised glass or mug, bonus points if you put an inside joke or funny saying on it! You can find the gifts from the image above on moonpig!
2 . Hobby inspired gifts – Get your dad something to do with one of their hobbies! You could get silly golf balls, favourite movie inspired gifts, football memorabilia and other things like that! Just think about what you dad likes to do, and get them something to do with that! You can find these cufflinks from notonthehighstreet here! For my dad’s birthday we went to a Frankenstein inspired escape room which was loads of fun, you can see the time we escaped in in the photos at the start of this post!
3 . Favourite food/cake homemade – Does your dad have a favourite cake or sweet treat? Why not make it and add a personal touch, it’s even better if you make it a little funny or something to do with their hobby! You could make a dart board cake if your dad’s into that something else! I definitely recommend checking out Oh My Cakery! They’re a great small business with incredible cakes!
4 . Gift based on past experiences – You know those stories your dad is always talking about, the one’s from when we was younger or did something great. Well why not collect some things from his past and create a memory box or you could let him relive that memory through an experience day if it’s something you can afford. This memory keepsake box can be found on notonthehighstreet!
5 . Gadgets – I think nearly all of us love a good gadget, so why not find a gadget to either make your dad’s life easier or something that is just a bit silly but has a little meaning to it. For example; check out this mini Pac-Man arcade machine!
So, that’s just a few thoughtful ideas for gifts you can get your dad or father figure next weekend. And if you’re still stuck for ideas after this, just go with something from the heart, cheesy I know, but after all.. it’s the thought that counts!
What are you getting your dad for father’s day? And what’re you planning for the day? My dad loves golf, horror movies, playing puzzle games on PlayStation with all of us shouting out the answers.. haha and just generally having a laugh with all of us. I hope you all have a great fathers day next week with those you care about and I’m thinking of all you who may be having a hard day, just know you’re loved and cared about!
Have a great week everyone!
