Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Fathers day has crept up on us once again (16th June in case you are wondering!).  It is that time of year where I, along with many others I am sure, struggle with ideas on what to buy my father. Not being the easiest person to buy for, I often buy the usual - clothes or chocolate. This year I have tried to think of some different or unusual gifts and so I have put together a few ideas for those who may also get stuck.

DAB Radio // £34 - I recently purchased a DAB radio for our Kitchen and they really are great. Not only can you listen to the radio but you can also insert your iPod/iPhone and listen to the music stored on there. I would highly recommend one if your dad enjoys listening to music

Golf day // Various - If your dad is a newbie to golf, how about golf lessons? I know this is something my dad would appreciate so he can improve his skills!  If not then a day out at golf would be greatly appreciated I am sure.

LED TV // Various - This is possibly slightly extravagent as a fathers day present, but hey if you are looking to spoil your father then an LED TV cannot go amiss.   Perfect for those times when your dad is kicked out of the living room as you and your mum are watching a girly film!

Personalised poster // £25 - I personally love personalised gifts and I think this is a really touching present.  You have the chance to add 6 lines of text - thanking your dad for whatever you like.  He will hang this on the wall with pride :)

Games Console Controller // Various - My dad is not much of a gamer, however I know if he was he would appreciate a new controller.  After a bit of time controllers begin to wear and the Gioteck controllers are well designed and they look a lot more attractive than your typical controllers!

Lunch at a luxury hotel - This is a favourite of mine. I don't often get to go to lunch or dinner with just my father and so I think this is a great way to treat him. Not only will he appreciate the great food but he will enjoy getting to spend some time with his *favourite* daughter ;)

Hotel Chocolat Slab // £15- As I said, this is an obvious present, however it is also a can't go wrong present! Hotel Chocolat has a great variety of chocolate and there is something for everyone. I highly recommend the chocolate slabs as they are relatively cheap (for Hotel Chocolat), are very tasty and they last a long time!

iPod Shuffle // £40 - This a particularly good idea if your dad goes to the gym.  You can even get it engraved for free with a loving fathers day message.  They come in a variety of colours so make sure you purchase his favourite!

Shaving Set // £12.50 - I love this. The shaving soap includes ingredients such as shea and cocoa butter and so is lovely and moisturising.  If your dad does like to take care of himself, I honestly think he would love this.

Cook him a meal // Various - If you do not have much money to spend then why not cook your dad a 3 course meal.  Make him a card and his favourite desert, and treat him like a king for the night.  And remember it's the thought that counts, so don't worry if you aren't the best cook in the world, he will love your effort.

What are you going to buy your father? I am still torn!
