Father's Day Gift Guide Part 3

I hope we have given you lots of ideas with the first two parts of our Father's Day gift guide and our Father's Day Pinterest board, but here are some more gems that could be just the thing for your dad or husband.  And don't forget, if you are still lacking inspiration, try our Father's Day quiz to see what kind of dad he is first!


It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man in possession of the good fortune to be a father, must be in want of many t-shirts*.  And this cool-geek design from Weird Fish is a step ahead, with a hefty £9 donation going to the RSPB for each one sold.  As RSPB members, we were sold on this straight away - fun design, great quality tee, and helping a great cause too.  A big win all round.  The RSPB Lord of the Wings t-shirt is available in blue, black and grey and is made from 100% high quality cotton.  It retails at £19.95.


Also from Weird Fish is this gorgeous snuggly hooded sweatshirt with soft, brushed lining, front logo, kangaroo pouch pocket, and integral hood.  The Norie Printed Hoody is perfect for these still cool evenings (in June?!), and is such high quality fabric it will last and last.  It retails at £37.00 and is available in grey marl as seen here, with blue contrast arms and hood, and a reverse navy with blue body and grey arms and hood.  Steve is loving his Weird Fish clothing!



NIVEA MEN has come a long way in recent years, and has recently added three great new products to its range.  Now official Men’s Grooming Partner for Liverpool Football Club, NIVEA MEN knows how important it is to be ready for each and every game, as well as each and every day for the mere mortals amongst our menfolk.  Grooming guru Bora Esen has joined up to offer great grooming advice so all men can #preparetowin.

The new NIVEA MEN Sensitive Cooling Moisturiser (RRP £7.49) and NIVEA MEN Sensitive Cooling Shaving Foam (RRP £3.09) are formulated to bring immediate, yet long-lasting cooling skin relief as well as protection against irritation.  They are alcohol-free which will help the 57% of men who have sensitive skin to avoid burning, reddening and inflammation of the skin.  They contain chamomile to calm and heal post-shave skin, and innovative ingredient, Coolact 10, which reduces that burning feeling and leaves skin feeling instantly cool.


Men also get their own version of bestselling NIVEA CREME, meaning he will keep his hands off yours!  This no-nonsense, all-purpose moisturising cream is designed to take care of all men’s moisturising needs, with a light, non-greasy formula that absorbs super-fast and leaves no residue.  For well-moisturised and healthy looking skin, with a fresh, masculine scent, it is suitable for face, body and hands, with prices starting from £3.49.


You've heard of wine and beer subscription services, you've tried beauty boxes, well how about getting the man in your life on board with the new ShaveKit subscription?  This great new idea brings dad a new razor set straight to the door either monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly.  These high quality razors are manufactured in Germany using carbon steel blades, and are highly rated by those who use the service already.  Steve was really impressed with the quality of the razors and blades, especially with prices ranging from just £6.95 - £8.95 per delivery.  Each delivery contains 4 new razor cartridges, with the first including the razor handle too.  A great way to make sure you always have fresh blades to hand.


Baylis & Harding are great for stylishly packaged gifts and their Father's Day range doesn't disappoint.  We love this SPORT Trio of Treats Gift Set in the fresh, zesty Citrus Lime & Mint fragrance.  It contains Hair & Body Wash, Shower Gel and Aftershave Balm, in very sleek, chic packaging that will look great on the bathroom shelf.  It is available from Asda and Sainsbury's, priced £7.50.


TOAD® Diary is a whole new concept in diaries and planners as they can be started at any time of year, personalised with a choice of covers and text of your choosing.  It can be hard to find decent diaries for men - I struggle every Christmas - so this is a revelation.  They have a great range of sporty covers as well as more generic nature covers, but I chose this fun retro record print for Steve's.  Deliverable in just three days, put in your order now!  I love the idea of choosing your own end and start dates, and the ability to choose the layout and functionality that suits your needs - you could even tell him it's the latest in new-fangled gadgets!  You really can't beat pen and paper, especially when it's as stylish as this!  Prices start at £13.93 for a personalised A5 diary.


A great gift book for any Game of Thrones fan, In Memoriam is a tribute to some of the most memorable characters that have died during the first four series, including Beric Dondarrion, Stark and Septa Mordane.  The book includes quotes, brief character profiles, and a generous helping of series photography throughout.  The book has an RRP of £9.99 and is widely available, including from Amazon: Game of Thrones: In Memoriam.


If your dad is a whiskey drinker, the beautifully packaged Macallan Gold in its Limited Edition Luggage Tag Pack would make a lovely gift.  With notes of vanilla followed by dark chocolate, with lingering floral and light oak notes. The Macallan Gold Limited Edition Luggage Tag pack is available from retailers including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, RRP £38.95. 

By contrast, the Ardmore Legacy is the perfect introduction to peated single malt whisky.  With notes of creamy vanilla, followed by smoky charcoal and savoury spices, it has a pleasant smoky taste, The Ardmore Legacy is a full-bodied and smooth dram with a dry, spicy and long-lasting finish.  It is availabel from major supermarkets, including Tesco and Morrisons at an RRP of £29.99. 


For sporty daddies, this Colin Montgomerie Yoke Stripe Detail Polo Shirt would make a great gift, and is perfect for summer.  Buying into the whole blue trend this season, and the very cool coastal trend, this blue polo shirt is a great buy.  With an RRP of £32.00, this cotton polo shirt is a summer staple that will go with everything, and is perfect for the golf course or the back garden barbecue.


The polo shirt is available from Edinburgh Woollen Mill, which has over 380 mainstream stores throughout the UK as well as an online store.


And finally, if you want to really spell it out for Daddy, head over to stylish typography website POSH Graffiti and try out their fun virtual wall to see how your chosen phrase or word will look on a variety of textures and backgrounds.  They have A-Z letters, numbers and symbols in 13 alphabets all in stock, so get inventive!


These hand-carved letters, numbers and symbols are made by a woodcarving farmers co-operative in the centre of Bali, Indonesia, so you can be sure of giving something back too.  I was so torn between the natural wood font and the gold, but plumped for gold in the end as our sitting room has touches of gold in the soft furnishings and accessories.  I hope Steve will be pleased with his OUR DADDY phrase on Sunday!  Prices start at £6.75 per letter.




Enjoy your Father's Day shopping!
