Fathers Day gift guide
Fathers Day is looming, yes its that time again! I thought I would create a fathers day gift guide. I don’t know about you but I would not have got through lockdown without Amazon. It helped me stay at home and still be occupied. I managed to redecorate my home office, celebrate VE day and try out new recipes and have birthday gifts delivered to family members by having goods delivered. I fully appreciate every single member of Amazon’s team who made this happen for me. All my deliveries were delivered promptly and the delivery staff maintained social distancing.
Shops in the UK are set to reopen next week meaning you can go out and purchase gifts. But if queuing and social distancing puts you off are you wish to continue shielding or staying at home let me make some suggestions that may help you. These are products that I think the men in my life would enjoy, especially as I am possibly the same ago or older than your dad.
Monty Don gardening book. Monty Don is the regular presenter on Gardeners World and a popular figure. Written as he talks, this is Monty Don right beside you in the garden, challenging norms and sharing his advice based on years of experience.
A personalised sign for his garden shed or bar. My brother in law has made a homemade bar during lockdown and loves it, he has a personalised sign. If your dad doesn’t have his won bar, and let’s face not many do, he may enjoy having a sign on his shed. A personal gift for Fathers Day.
An outdoor wildlife Infrared camera unusual I know but often Dad’s have a lot of things they need and as we get older we like to take up different hobbies or pastimes. I have become so interested in my garden and looking at the birds and hoping for a hedgehog. I am fascinated by viewing these night time videos on social media. It’s not a cheap gift but maybe it could be a joint present, and could provide hours of interest. Surprise him this fathers day.
Here’s a lovely gift – reusable ice cubes – these are gold coloured cubes and come in a presentation box. A real indulgent gift that can help him enjoy his favourite drink or impress his friends.
If gold is a bit too much how about granite?
Extra large drinks cooler – this is great for staying home in the garden, perfect for beer and wine, also doubles as a punch bowl. Great for the man who entertains at home.
If he’s into DIY this magnetic wristband is fabulous – stops screws and nails etc annoyingly falling on the floor at the crucial moment.
If he loves cooking especially steaks and meats a food thermometer could be good. A gadget that not many people buy for themselves but would use if they had it.
How about a ManTin that you can fill with his favourite chocolate, snacks, coffees or tea. Then he can use it for storage afterwards.
And finally an Amazon gift card is always useful so he can choose his own gift. The beauty of these as they can be given as a card or sent electronically. Perfect if you do not live close by.
That seems to be quite a comprehensive list of choices. I hope I’ve provided you with some ideas and inspiration for the men in your life this fathers day.
Thanks for popping in today. I appreciate it.
