contains gifted products


With just a week to go until Father’s Day 2019 on Sunday 16th June 2019 I wanted to share some Father’s Day Gift Ideas for those who might be looking for some inspiration. After receiving such good feedback from my Valentine’s Gift Guide and my Mother’s Day Gift guide with people telling me how helpful they were and still are, I thought it would be a great way to share some ideas and revisit some old recommendations which are still just as good today!

Buying for men is one of the most difficult of tasks, there’s no other way to put it other than finding the perfect Father’s Day gift is hard. Relentlessly trying to come up with new and impressive gift ideas and suddenly it comes to a week before and you’re racing against the clock to find something that isn’t a pair of socks or a handkerchief… again. 

I’ve put together a budget-friendly idea or two for what you could treat your Dad or Grandad this Father’s Day which is very quickly approaching.



For lots of gift ideas perfect for Dad’s and Grandad’s be sure to check out the Father’s Day Gift Ideas available on Moonpig.

We managed to get my Dad at Small Everyday Hamper from Moonpig and it’s a fantastic gift. The hamper comes in a beautiful wicker basket that had to be almost prized out of my hands. It looks perfect for a beach day picnic or for a family picnic in the park.


Containing lots of family favourites, the hamper comes equipped with plenty of yummy treats, such as oatcakes, fudge, tea, chocolates and my absolute favourite biscuits: shortbreads. With very little effort, it’s a gorgeous ready made gift that looks like you’ve put 1000 x more thought in it than you have (which says a lot because we know you’ve put thought otherwise you wouldn’t have been googling Father’s Day Gift Ideas!). 


If you’re looking for a superb gift for father’s or grandad’s then you definitely won’t go wrong with a hamper like this one! There are plenty more hampers available at Moonpig so be sure to have a rummage through their site and see which one would be perfect for your father!



mapiful valentines gift venice flatlay

I’ve posted about Mapiful in each and every gift guide I’ve created because they truly are something special. They’re a great way to surprise your loved one with a surprise trip or to capture the memories of that family holiday years ago. Another perfect way to share a Mapiful in the uniquest of ways is to send them a map of where you live, if you live across the miles it can be a lovely reminder of where you are.

We have a lovely New York and a Venice Mapiful and they’re both absolutely beautiful. They brighten up the room and add a touch of luxury, they’re a fantastic gift for Father’s Day.


For as long as I can remember I’ve turned to Truprint to find the perfect sentimental gift. Whether that’s a photo book or a canvas. Quality and ease of access around the website are just two of the reasons why I’ve continued going back to Truprint, year in year out. Long before I ever had a blog, or even knew what one was, I used to make photo books for different family members, for Christmas, birthdays or special occasions like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

Truprint have recently gone through a rebrand focusing on being true to life and telling your true to life stories, it’s so lovely to have such a real, unfiltered approach to memories and life in general.

Documenting dadventures and filling them into a photobook is a great idea for Father’s Day and one that I have bought as gifts in previous years. A beautiful photobook captures the memories and is a gift your loved ones will cherish.

The Fragrance Shop


Who doesn’t love the gift of a gorgeous scent?

Jimmy Choo Blue is the essence of a strong, masculine figure. Reminiscent of a liquor flask, it’s curved at the back and screams sophistication in the subtlest of ways. The dip-dye blue bottle is elegant and powerful and stands with purpose on the dressing table.

Jimmy Choo Blue is my favourite fragrance that Alex has, so I’m very grateful to The Fragrance Shop for recommending it to us. It has a masculine invigorating scent with delightful pepper, wood and earthy tones. It’s almost captivating the essence of the true, outdoorsy man.


If you picked up your Mum the Jimmy Choo Fever from my Mother’s Day Gift Guide, then you’ll be delighted to know that the male equivalent compliments it wonderfully. It’s the subtle his and hers outfit!

I absolutely recommend Jimmy Choo Blue as an impressive gift for Father’s Day. You can pick it up for ÂŁ45.50 on The Fragrance Shop website!

For the well-travelled amongst us, a brand-new suitcase is always welcomed. The four-wheeled Herolite Spinner 75 is a perfect gift for the travel lovers who are heading off on a holiday. Weighing just 2.2kg, you’ll be shocked at just how light it is, meaning extra weight for them to pack what they want to take (and bring back!). 

The design of the American Tourister Herolite Spinner 75 is innovative, sleek and fashionable with durable materials and plentiful space. It really is a fantastic travel companion.


No detail has been missed with good packing options, which includes an interior mesh pocket and cross-ribbons in the bottom compartment to keep everything in place. There are two roomy front pockets too.
