Father’s Day is only a few days away and I know there’s going to be lots of people who haven’t sorted their gifts yet! There’s still time to find the perfect gift to show your Dad, Grandad or father of your kids how much they are appreciated. It isn’t always about spending loads of money, it’s just showing them how much you care.
If you’re on a budget or want something truly personal, homemade is the way to go. Get the kids to make their Dad a card or present. A handmade drawing, handprint card or cake are all cheap and easy ways for kids to show Dad how much they care.
VIRGIN EXPERIENCE DAY
I LOVE Virgin Experience days because there’s so much choice and you get to gift something your Dad/partner probably won’t buy for themselves. For me, experiences or days out are brilliant because you make memories that will last a lot longer than most other gifts. With Virgin, most experience gift vouchers can be sent as an email so if you haven’t bought it in time for delivery you can always print it off! Added bonus, if you buy your partner an experience for 2 you get to enjoy it aswell…win win! ?
Make sure you buy through Quidco or TopCashback to earn money back on your purchase!
DUMMY BY MATT COYNE
I’ve followed the Man Vs Baby Facebook page and Instagram for a while now and have to say it is HILARIOUS! There are so many Mummy bloggers out there but it’s so refreshing to read about a Dad’s experience. The man behind Man Vs Baby has just published a book – Dummy and it’s great! I’ve only read a couple of chapters so far but I think it’s brilliant and I think a lot of Dads will relate to it too.
Last year I made my partner a gift hamper containing all his favourite food and drink. It didn’t take that much effort but he was seriously impressed. You can use any container you have handy, but Poundland have some great ones in at the minute. If you want to make it look more impressive just wrap it in cellophane and stick a bow on it! I usually buy it from Amazon or The Range because it’s cheap but you can also get it from most florists.
A monthly subscription is a great gift to receive because you keep getting presents every month! It’s not just magazine these days either, there’s subscriptions out there for everything from learning how to cook to beauty boxes to craft gins or real ales delivered to you door each month.
A DAY TO THEMSELVES
Any parent knows we’ve got one of the toughest jobs around. It’s amazing and wonderful but it can also be relentless and exhausting.
If you also work, it can feel like you never get a break.
Maybe you could give your partner some time to himself as a treat this Father’s Day. Maybe he’s passionate about sports – get him tickets to his favourite game. Maybe he just likes to chill at home – take the kids out for the day, or get them to make him handmade vouchers that entitle him to watch what he wants with no-one complaining, 10 minutes of silence, snacks on demand…anything you can think of!
BREAKFAST IN BED
Simple but effective! Get the kids involved and get them to help make Dad’s breakfast this Father’s Day. Give him a lie in and get the kids to deliver their cards and breakfast to him in bed.
SOMETHING HE WONT BUY FOR HIMSELF
Lots of parents don’t treat themselves to the things they really want. Whether it’s clothes, aftershave, a hobby or even a meal out. If there’s something you know your Dad or partner loves but won’t treat them self to, this has to be the perfect gift.
