Top 3 Thoughtful Father's Day Gift Ideas
It's June already! Which means Father's day is fast approaching and the yearly struggle of finding dad the perfect gift is in full flow. How can you decide on a gift for the man who either; has everything already, or says he doesn't need anything? We think the key is to identify his favourite moments in life and try to make them a little more special. So, we have picked our top 3 most thoughtful gift ideas for dads of all natures.
For Dads that Love a Nice Tipple
Many of our dads here enjoy a nice short after a long day at work or at the weekend. For these dads we think a lovely country-esque decanter teamed with a bottle of his favourite beverage will do the trick. We love this Spode Glen Lodge Stag Decanter for a gift as it is guaranteed to please dad. At just £19.50 you can bag this and a nice bottle for under £40. Sainsbury's have some great offers on spirits at the moment - you can have a browse here.
For Dads that Love Tea
Many of our dads out there savour a lovely morning brew. After all, us Brits get through over 165 million cups of tea a day! We believe that each cuppa should be sipped from a mug that you love. So, the aim is to find dad a mug that he loves. This Ted Baker Portmeirion mug & coaster set is perfect for a stylish dad and makes a lovely gift at under £15. If your dad is more traditional with his taste, a classic tisaniere to make loose tea is a thoughtful gift for him to use everyday. This Spode Blue Italian Tisaniere is great at £10.50.
For the Gordon Ramsey Dads
Last but not least, for the dads that fancy themselves as the chef of the house! If your dad is a self-proclaimed head chef, he is bound to appreciate a couple of cooking tools to help him rustle up his creations. If you are a cook yourself (or the dish washer), I am sure you can appreciate a good non-stick frying pan. This Sophie Conran for Portmeirion frying pan is fab as it has a ceramic coating making it super easy to cook with and to clean. As dads are known to make a bit of a mess, a manly apron to accompany his chef persona is a great touch! We love this Spode Linen Apron, bon Appétit!
