Father’s Day Gift Ideas

*Includes gifted items and sponsored content


When it comes to buying gifts for the men in my life, I realised a long time ago that their gifts need to either be edible or be useful. Men in my experience don’t really go for things for their aesthetics, the things they own have a purpose. So when it comes to gifts I make sure I try to buy practical gifts, things they need.


I know that doesn’t sound especially exciting, but Si especially is always thrilled if I manage to buy him something that he needs. Well if it’s tools, then he manages to find a usage for the tool…. a bit like me and pretty boxes, I love them and have loads, but I am constantly trying to work out what to use them for ;)


So for those of you with similarly practical men in your life, here is a little list of possible gifts that can be classed as ‘useful’ and practical.


Wall Mountable Storage Kit


If you have a tool mad partner like my own, then something like this might benefit you as well as them. Mostly because, if they are anything like Si, then you will have random screws, and other little bits and pieces that may come in handy one day for a random project, in little piles on window sills all over the house.


With some sort of tool storage, like this one from Screwfix you can reclaim your home and get some peace whilst they spend forever reorganising their shed and playing with… I mean tidying all their tools and bits.


£26.99 from Screwfix




With the weather hotting up ( and hopefully staying that way), sandals are definitely the sensible and practical choice of footwear. Having your toes out really helps to cool you down, and these days they don’t have to worry that they will look like a member of the sandals and socks brigade. Men’s sandals are actually pretty cool looking these days.

£38 EmilioLuca X Sandals from Brantano 


An Edible Hamper


I have a competition running at the moment for a lovely Father’s Day Hamper. In my experience food and drink are always popular gifts.


Serenata Father's Day


£39.99 Serenata Dads Wine Hamper


A Taste of Cornwall


Can anyone resist a cream tea? I can imagine this cream tea hamper would be a brilliant gift, and even better why not take it out with you for a Cornish themed picnic on Father’s Day? It is also from a small local company down here and available to order online.

Personalised Allsorts Sweet Tree


Keeping with the food theme, I love the look of these sweet trees. A fabulous gift idea for all sorts of occasions, and on the Not on the High street site, there are loads more similar options.

If your Dad is tool mad, then a gift voucher for a local DIY shop or garden centre would be a great choice too, or an activity voucher to do something fun or instead of a gift maybe just a special day out together?

      Me too! ;) Probably a dangerous item for me to buy as it would never last to give it to anyone else ha
