This year Fathers Day falls on Sunday 18th June, which is pretty soon and because I know a lot of people find it hard to know what to get for Dad I have compiled a few ideas. The great thing is the list contains mainly items if you have a small budget and a few that are a bit more higher priced. 


Cards
When it comes to cards than Hallmark have you sorted with their wide selection. With a wide range of cards suitable for all types of Dads you will find one your taste. They even stock some great pop up cards. 




 Toiletries/Grooming

If you are looking for a budget item to include in a hamper than why not check out these face masks from 7th Heaven especially for men. Each mask retails at £1 and so makes a great little gift. Face masks don't just have to be for women. 



To keep your Dad smelling nice this Fathers Day why not purchase this fab beer soap for £5 this is a great little gift to add to a hamper or just as a little something. The team at Meantime HQ have certainly raised the bar with this soap. Made from the capital’s favourite Pale Ale, it’s ideal for the ultimate beer lover.



 If your Dad has a beard to be proud of why not get him these Brisk beard oils and shampoos. The beard oils are ultra light so they absorb easily and come in unscented as well as 3 different scents: Tree tree, citrus and cedar wood. The beard shampoos cleanses and refreshes the beard. Hair is left feeling clean, manageable and soft to the touch.

For Dad’s with a sense of humour who want to look professional for work, Quiet Rebellion socks feature vibrant patterns and designs concealed within the shoe. Put simply, they are socks of two halves: a respectable top with wild and colourful soles.

Alcohol 
Did you know that from 16th-25th of June is picnic week? I didn't, so why not take advanatge of picnic week with a bottle of Maison Williams Chase Rose, a beautiful pale shade of pink and bone dry, this Rosé boasts affluent stone fruit aromas of peaches and apricots, followed by a refreshing note of grapefruit with a backdrop of savoury Provençal herbs. Made from Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Vermentino grapes, the wine's moreish, creamy texture sits in harmony with a steely minerality working towards a long, mouth-watering, lingering finish. 31 Dover are a great company that sell a wide range of alcholic drinks and are worth checking out as they make a great gift.

The beer is rich, full-bodied and full of roasted coffee and chocolate flavours – perfect for pairing with cheese or roasted meats. The ideal gift to treat the beer loving dad with. 




Candle

Candles don't have to just be for men ''mandles'' – which have been specifically created with male-oriented scent may fit the bill. Yankee candles with masculine and woody fragrances such as sandalwood, cedarwood and tobacco make a great gift. The Yankee Candle Barbershop collection is a selection of glossy black candles with scents such as 'Aftershave' and 'Chrome'.  These candles provide a clean and modern twist on a classic, and the black glass tumblers with brushed metal lids make a fantastic and contemporary gift for men

  1. Great ideas! I love the socks, they're your usual gift but with something a bit special about them. I don't know what to get my husband from our little girl for Fathers Day, although I think all I got was a card for Mothers day so I won't be trying too hard!
