Fathers Day Gift Guide

I promised last week that I'd be back with lots of gift ideas for Father's Day and here I am! 

I wanted to start with some fabulous ideas that I've personally tried. First up is a gorgeous personalisation brand called 'Auntie Mims' - they have a huge range of wooden gifts, which they can carve with your own message. I've actually used Auntie Mims to buy a few gifts for Chris in the past and they've all been greatly received. In the picture below you can see the wooden spoon, which can come in a whole host of designs. These are perfect if your Dad cooks up a storm in the kitchen (click here to browse the collection). Another great gift are the Personalised Hammers which I think are perfect for almost every Dad! The hammers are great quality and you know the gift is going to get lots of use. Every time he picks it up, he's bound to think of you (link here)!

Another great gift for a foodie Dad is this apron from Qwerkity*. I recently shared a full review of this apron (link here) but I think it would make a great Father's Day gift. It has a great colour scheme and it's fun, whilst being informative. 

Another great gift I've spotted are the the IWOOT Gift Boxes! IWOOT make a whole load of different boxes, but they've created a special one especially for Father's Day (link here). The box includes a t-shirt and a mug, with a Star Wars theme.

If your Dad is a bit of a fitness freak, or perhaps he could do with a bit of fitness encouragement, M&S is the place to go! M&S are celebrating the launch of the FitBit in stores and online. They've also got some other great offers, including a lot of great gifts under £20, I love this 'Breakfast In Bed' set. However, the best deal that M&S have is their gift box for £19.50! You can grab a pair of shorts, a polo shirt and a card all for £19.50 (click here), bargain!

If you're looking for a more sentimental idea, I have a few ideas! Maybe your Dad is a little bit older, or perhaps he's just a fan of walking and being outdoors. If so, I love the idea of these personalised Ordnance Survey maps - because I've learnt recently that not everyone has a smartphone! You can plan a new route for a family day out, or pick your a family favourite for a real keepsake for years to come. Something else that I think makes a great and sentimental gift, is the glassware from Spaceform. They have a whole host of designs, including some special pieces for Father's Day. Another great gift is this 'Your Life In Pictures' book that you can buy from Prezzybox. All your favourite pictures and memories, all wrapped up in a lovely book. 

Being a beauty blog, the gift guide would not be complete without a few beauty related gifts. Why not treat your Dad to a new aftershave? Maybe he needs a topup of his favourite scent or maybe he might want to see something new. If you're looking for a few beauty treats but you're on a budget, the L'Oreal Paris For Men range is fantastic! They do everything from skincare to deodorant and they actually work! 

As always Paperchase are packed with amazing cards and gifts - I love the creative cards they come up with for every occasion. They are well worth checking out! You can shop online (here) or just pop into a store.
