14 Gift Ideas for Dad

Ok. Let’s hope this Gift Guide goes down better than the one I kicked off with –  Nannies & Au Pairs! (‘If I as given a wallet with a London skyline on it, I would throw it in the bin’ was my favourite!)

There are plenty of great ideas from practical to funny to experiential. This is the one time I don’t want hubby to read my latest post (he is getting better at doing it off his own back now!)

Headphones – Kavsons £49

Noisy children? These would go down a treat and you can always use them when you have had enough too!


Golfclub Cufflinks – Deakin & Francis £250

Cufflinks are always a good idea. I love these but if they are on the penny side, check out Deakin & Francis other gift ideas. They are fun of them.


Wordsmithery – John Lewis £20

Test his linguistic skills with the new Wordsmithery. Compact, easy and fun to play, and perfect for family get-togethers (no arguing now!) Wordsmithery puts your knowledge of words and their meaning to the test.

Gin Palace Extravaganza Tour – Sipsmith, Chiswick £75

For any gin lover, this tour sounds fantastic. You end up at the local pub too!



Matching Father & Son Pyjamas – PJ Pan from  £89 & 38

There isn’t much (to my knowledge) father & son matchy match out there, but if you are game, these matching pjs are a good way to kick off. They are also pretty festive and could be quite sweet seeing the boys in your life open their presents in matching pjs?




Superman Smartbox – Buyagift £49

Over 1380 experiences for 1 or 2 people. Either send him or go together. Cars? Boats? Climbing? Have a look at the tremendous selection. A great present for the man you don’t know what to buy for!



Boot & Shoe Driers – Drysure £30

Drysure extreme boot dryers offer a simple and sure way to dry any type of boot, free from the fuss of having to find power points or batteries.  Married to a runner or a skier? Ski boots will dry overnight and Drysure’s other product Drysure Active can dry running shoes in under 6 hours. Nice, no more wet (and smelly) feet in your life.

Choose from our most popular sizes below, or get in touch to request something in any size that fits. Choose a print only or have it framed in a custom made white wooden frame, professionally sealed to protect from damage.

A stunningly stylish luxurious hardworking piece of stationery that looks really fabulous and at home where ever you choose to put it. A great personalised present!



Giraffe Loo Roll Holder – Qwerkity £29

Oh we do like novelty and you can’t get more novelty than a giraffe loo roll holder! Hopefully this will stop my toddler putting the loo roll in the loo… hmmm

Personalised Wash Bag – Will Bees Bespoke £59

Guys just don’t have the cosmetic bag choice that we do, do they. Even if they did, it is probably the last thing they would buy. Surely stuffing there deodorant and the like in your cosmetic bag is acceptable. Well, no it isn’t. Especially as it is now housing about 10 toothbrushes and a frozen hairbrush to boot. Time to give him his own, and a nice one. I love this Will Bees one, and it can also be personalised so no confusing whose it is!



Grey Linen Shirt with Colour Print Collar& Cuff – Tobias Clothing £80

I am about to publish a Spotlight on Tobias Clothing’s I love the shirts and the whole ethos of the company. Here is a taster. (And a percentage of each shirt goes to charity so all in all it is a great choice).


Narmada Grey High Res
