Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is a little less than a month away, making now the perfect time to start shopping for a heartfelt gift. When it comes to Father's Day there may have been a few occasions where I've 'panic bought' a gift in the past and although I love my Dad dearly, I find him difficult to buy for, so this year I'm trying to be a little more prepared. I will also be treating my other half to a few gifts on behalf of Arthur. He's one of the most important people in his life and their relationship deserves celebrating.

If you too are looking to find a meaningful gift this Father's Day, take a look at my gift guide below for inspiration!

If you are looking for a timeless gift your father will love, this Engraved Pocket Watch* (£34.99) will tick all of the boxes. The stylish Quartz pocket watch features a black dial, Roman Numerals and has a gun metal lid, which can be engraved with your personal message. You can choose up to 85 characters, over five lines and will have a choice of font too. I think it's one of the more unusual Personalised Fathers Day Gifts, as I guess you don't see as many people wearing pocket watches these days but it's quirky and something many men will love; whether they choose to wear it with pride or treasure it as a keepsake in the home.

I chose to engrave the pocket watch from GiftsOnline4u with a message about our family bond, as it's something that means a lot to us all and I know my partner will love it. I personalised it with one of the names he calls Arthur, 'Arthy Bear,' as I'm sure, as Arthur gets older, we won't use that nickname as much, so it'll be lovely to have the pocket watch engraved with something that will remind us of it!

The pocket watch itself, is made to a high standard and you simply click the button at the top to remove the lid and reveal the stylish watch face. It comes with a matching chain and clip and also arrives in a sleek presentation box for easy gifting.

Another lovely Father's Day gift idea is a personalised glass. This Personalised Beer Glass is from Find Me A Gift and is perfect for showing a loved one in your life, just how much you care! You can tailor it to whoever you like and whatever occasion. For Father's Day, I thought I'd personalise this one for Arthur's Grandad (my dad.) He means such a lot to Arthur and I think it's important to not only celebrate Dads on Father's Day but Grandads too!

The Personalised No.1 In The World Pint Glass* (£9.99) allows you to choose up to 7 characters for the name or role and a further 20 characters on lines one and two.

The quality of the pint glass itself is really good and I'm impressed with the personalisation too. You could add your Dad or Grandad's favourite beer with it, to make the perfect gift for Father's Day.

So this next gift isn't your typical Father's Day gift but I absolutely love it! It's actually a Personalised Paw Patrol book*, which can be tailored to a son or daughter and their dad or grandad. It's a brand new addition to the wonderful Penwizard website and available in both softback (£14.99) and hardback (£19.99).

Not only can you personalise the book with you child's name and that of their father figure but you can also alter the characters to look like them too - choosing everything from their skin tone to hair and eye colour. I've actually made my Dad (Arthur's Grandad) look about thirty, which we've all found hilarious. Definitely should have gone for grey hair!

The sentiment of the story itself is so lovely and the fact it places the child and their loved one right in the middle of a Paw Patrol adventure is all the more exciting for little ones. I think it's a lovely gift for Dads and Grandads too though because it's bound to make them feel special and can be something they can do together with their child or grandchild.

This will make the perfect gift for Father's Day and Penwizard have been kind enough to offer a 20% discount on orders, using the code PAW20.

If your Dad or Grandad is more of a tea drinker, then head on over to Adagio Tea for a look at their extensive collection of flavoured teas. From traditional breakfast teas to green tea, black tea and fruity teas, there's bound to be a blend that takes your fancy. Having got to try a few of the loose leaf teas from Adagio* I can really recommend the Orchard Herbals sampler (£7.00). The Wild Strawberry tea in particular is a real treat.

Add a product from their tea ware collection to complete your Father's Day gift! I can highly recommend the IngenuiTea* (£18.00) which is great for brewing loose leaf tea. You simply add the tea and water, let it steep and then place the teapot on top of your cup and press down to pour the tea without getting any leaves in it - it's genius!

A jigsaw from Wentworth Wooden Puzzles is a rather unique gift that many Fathers and Grandfathers will love! We were lucky enough to receive the Woodland Creatures Puzzle* (from £27.00) from their spring collection a couple of months back (full review here) and really enjoyed piecing it together as a family.

Wentworth Puzzles actually offer Personal Photo Puzzles, which I think would make a fantastic gift idea for Father's Day. You can simply select a photo that your Dad will love (perhaps one of you together or your family) and have it turned into a completely unique wooden puzzle. They also have options to add special messages, which can add a lovely, meaningful finishing touch to your Father's Day jigsaw.

If you're looking for more of a 'foody' gift this Father's Day, these Bread and Cheese boards from Old English Company will make a lovely choice. I love their stylish design and the fact they feature the names of all different breads and cheese. They're a lovely size and would look great combined with a hamper of some of your Dad's favourite foods.

Old English Company also have a selection of prints, which could also make great Father's Day gifts, as well as a range of stylish Father's Day cards.

Shaving products and toiletries are always a failsafe gift for Father's Day but if you are looking for ones with a little more style and charm, I point you in the direction of the English Shaving Company. They offer a fantastic selection of male grooming products; from razors and shaving sets to fragrances, soaps and creams.

I'm actually going to be reviewing one of their Lady's DE Razors on the blog soon so be sure to look out for that. They've also kindly sent over the Edwin Jagger Limes & Pomegranate Shaving Cream* (£14.00), which smells amazing and would make a wonderful gift in itself!

If you're looking for the perfect finishing touch to your father's day gift or perhaps a little token gift instead, a personalised Father's Day keyring* from Funky Pigeon will make a wonderful choice. At £3.99, they're extremely affordable and what's great is that you can add a photo of you and your dad or grandad for an extra special touch! There's a few different designs to choose from, so be sure to head on over to the Funky Pigeon website to see them for yourself.

Funky Pigeon also have a fantastic range of Father's Day cards. I've actually purchased cards for my other half and my dad (on behalf of Arthur) from there. Again, I love that you can upload photos and completely personalise them. I highly recommend checking them out if you are looking to design your own Father's Day card.

I really hope my Father's Day Gift Guide has helped you find some lovely present ideas or at the very least given you some inspiration for things to buy your Dad or Grandad.
