Father’s day gifts that don’t cost the Earth

Father’s day gifts are always difficult to buy. Dads seem to be a special breed of people who really don’t want or need much. Both my husband and my dad tend to buy things they want when they see them. So thinking of gift ideas can be tough. These days, we’re all becoming more aware of the detrimental impact that unwanted gifts can have on the environment. So, I’ve sought out gifts that are things that dads will need and use, or that are particularly positive environmentally.

Grab 40 per cent off A Snapfish Father’s Day for the Dad who has it all

Let’s face it, there’s one of ‘those’ people in every family. You know the one, and you probably have the same conversation with him every year. “What do you want for Christmas / birthday / Father’s Day?” “Oh, there’s nothing I need.” “I don’t care, you know I need to get you something from the kids and if I just choose something, you won’t like it.” “It’s fine, just get me anything.” “Happy Father’s day.” “I don’t like it.” In case you hadn’t guessed, that someone in our family is my dad.

A Fathers Day gift for a grumpy old git

Last year, Prezzybox treated my dad to some gorgeous Father’s Day gifts. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and dad had a strange request.

Because dad didn’t want another shoe shine kit because he loved the one he already had. He just wanted a sponge on its own. Eventually I managed to track one…

Please note, this is a collaborative post but all views, opinions and ‘difficult to buy for’ father’s are my own. I have always struggled to know what to buy for my dad on Father’s day.

Thankfully this year, Prezzybox have come to the rescue with some fabulous, personalised items that are just perfect for my dad. The first thing is a personalised whiskey glass. On the body of the glass, it…

Dressing for Father’s Day

Please note, this post was written in collaboration with House of Fraser. All views, opinions and sorry tales involving expensive sunglasses are my own. I don’t very often buy clothes for my husband. That’s not because I don’t feel comfortable choosing clothes for him, in fact I think I know his style quite well. The reason I don’t buy clothes for him is because I just never go clothes shopping – I can’t remember the last time I bought clothes for myself either. A good online store like House of Fraser that sells men’s clothing is really useful for me.…
