With Father’s Day 2014 right around the corner (it’s June 15th, not that you didn’t know!) mums everywhere are wracking their brains as to what to get the kids’ favourite man this year.
Getting something he’ll really love shouldn’t be too difficult as dads are easy to please, but if you do want something he will be really pleased with, we’ve come up with a few ideas to help you out. You can even add some DIY elements to the gifts that the kids will get involved with too, which is bound to put a smile on dad’s face this year!
A special portrait of the two of them together
You could frame or mount his favourite picture of himself with the kids and display it on the wall for all to see. You could get the kids to write a message like ‘I love you dad’ and hold it up for the photo which looks really sweet and makes it even more personal to father’s day. Or you could even go that extra mile and get some professional family photos done! Companies like Venture Photography do gift options which are a great idea for special occasions.
Something cute for the office
If daddy could majorly benefit with something to brighten his day when he’s at work, something nice for the office or his desk at work is a good idea. Things like photo upload mugs with a photo of the little ones on are a nice idea, or things like photo upload mouse mats or coasters. You can even get personalised diaries and calendars too which is bound to make him smile whilst he’s making lots of arrangements. Or if you want to go for more of a token gift, an engraved pen is sure to go down well.
A ‘family night in’ gift pack
How about a gift for the whole family, but centred around dad? Organise a family night in and put together a gift pack filled with things he loves, and lots of sweet ideas from the kids. Fill a box or hamper with all the things you need for a family night, including his favourite film, a bottle of his favourite tipple, favourite snacks and perhaps a takeaway menu for his favourite restaurant. That’s sure to put a smile on his face and won’t cost too much either, and the kids will love getting involved in putting all of it together.
A gift set of his favourite smellies
Dads are often overlooked when it comes to pampering and indulging with toiletries, but they love looking after themselves just as much as we do! Help give dad a night off and a night to rejuvenate himself by giving him a lovely gift set of luxury smellies. We love the ones available at Molton Brownas they’re just that little bit more special and are unlikely to be something he’d buy for himself, which is what occasions like this are all about.
