I’m absolutely certain that somewhere in the shadows a time thief is lurking, how can it be June tomorrow? June can only mean one thing and that is the countdown to the one guaranteed day of the year when all Daddies look forward to being spoilt rotten! Yep you’ve got it, Father’s Day is just around the corner, but fear not I have put together a varied selection of ideas to give you some gift inspiration with something for Dad’s of every kind!

Personalised Parties*

Based in Cheltenham, Personalised Parties offer everything you could possibly need to make any occasion a special one and Father’s Day is no exception! Offering three fabulous ranges there is something for everyone and best of all they can be personalised just for your Dad – i’m a real sucker for personalised gifts! Our favourite has to be the Retro Tech Range featuring all those Old Skool, long forgotten electronics that Dad’s still think are trendy! Not only are you able to add a personalised message, but you can also upload your own photos giving a real unique finish. The range consists of  mugs, notebooks and chocolate bars that can all be customised plus why not add  matching gift wrap.

In our experience products from Personalised Parties are of the highest quality and the picture printing on both the notebook and chocolate wrapper are superb. The lined notebooks are both hard back and spiral bound meaning they will be hard wearing, perfect for Dad’s on the go that need to keep their ideas in one place.

Sarah Jayne Designs

At risk of repeating myself I do love personalised gifts and in my opinion these personalised button frames for Father’s Day would make a fabulous gift to show your Dad just how special he is. Made using a combination of printing and buttons these gorgeous frames can be personalised in different themes as well as having a personalised message and names added if required. If you have a specific request or design in mind drop Sarah Jayne a line as she is more than happy to tailor items to your requirements designing you a truly unique gift.

ThatchFace

Last year husband and wife, Ben and Leanne Cleaver, launched ThatchFace offering a range of homemade premium beard oils for all those sharing Ben’s passion for everything beard. When ThatchFace first started trading they offered three different oils and have since added a range of beard grooming kits, Combs and brushes making their site a one-stop shop for all your beard grooming needs.

What makes ThatchFace special though is that they donate 10% of the profit from the sale of their beard oils to the charity Orchid, the leading UK charity working for and with those affected by male cancer. This is not only a fantastic cause but is also very close to my heart.

Fancy treating your Dad to something to keep his beard looking tip-top? Well Ben has kindly given us an exclusive discount code for readers to get 15% off their order quoting FFH15.

Molly Dolly Crafts*

Launched in August last year, Molly Dolly Crafts began as a hobby for owner Alex who is unable to work a standard job due to disability. Originally offering personalised items using vinyl this wonderful small business has grown and expanded its product range to include printed items from clothing to homeware.

I have said it before but will say it again, I really love personalised gifts and Molly Dolly Crafts has a whole range of items ideal for Father’s Day. My favourite though is the QR Keyring. I have never seen anything like this before! These wonderful products can be printed with your picture of choice on one side and on the reverse a specially created QR code is printed which when scanned will show a personal photo or video!  Not only would these make the perfect gift, but the quality is fantastic, and it won’t break the bank at the bargain price of £5!

I also really love this cute dinosaur mug perfect for those brew loving Daddy’s!

Coffee & Kin

Run by sister’s Ruth and Kathryn alongside their Australian husbands, who just happen to be best friends, Coffee & Kin believe that the speciality coffee shop experience can be just as easily enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. With this in mind they have created a range of ethically sourced, quality coffee capsules and freshly roasted beans which can be delivered directly to your door as a monthly subscription. These would make the ideal Father’s Day gift for those who enjoy a cuppa. Don’t worry if your Dad’s not a coffee fan though as they also offer a Tea subscription which is available in a variety of flavours.

In addition, when making a purchase from Coffee & Kin 1p per capsule and 10p from every bag of beans sold is reinvested back into the coffee growing communities. They have set up the Coffee & Kin Foundatation with the aim of using the money generated from sales of their products to offer grants and support. You read more about their goals here.

Coffee and Tea subscriptions start from just £7.15 a month and the full range available can be viewed on the Coffee & Kin Website.

Hoppily

Does your Dad enjoy a beer or two? Then why not treat him to one of Hoppily’s specially selected craft beer gifts!

This fabulous company has spent a great deal of time selecting (and sampling) a range of beers from local, independent breweries in order to offer its customers the finest selection of craft beers around. Their website boasts a massive range of gift packs to suit every taste and budget ranging from the London Craft Beer Trio offering a small taster to the One-Off Sampler Gift Box which contains a range of eight different beers to try.

  1. Wow! What an awesome list of cool Fathers Day gifts Melanie! 💖 I agree, I love personalised presents and think they are so sweet and thoughtful. The Retro Tech notebook with Leo in the TV is fantastic 😍. My dad is a big fan of coffee so a coffee subscription is such a good idea. Thanks for the inspiration! 😘 xx
