Father’s Day is less than two weeks ago, it will be on Sunday 16th June this year. This year, I put together a Father’s Day Gift Guide for different types of daddies, whether your dad prefers to smell nice, play with a cool gadget or receive a personalised gift.
Hubby has been busy trying and testing Father’s Day gifts for our Father’s Day Gift Guide of products that have been tried, tested and loved! Whether you are looking for a small or big gift this Father’s Day, you will certainly find something to make daddy feel special! We have already shared our Father’s Day Gift Guide: Technology Gifts for Dad.
In no particular order, those are our tried and tested suggestions this Father’s Day in our Father’s Day Gift Guide: Personalised Gifts for Dad
Photobox are Europe’s leading online digital photo service with more than 22+ million members, offering a range of personalised gifts including photo canvas.
We have ordered a Classic Canvas and it is absolutely gorgeous. You can choose the format (rectangular, square and panoramic) and size of your canvas.. They are available in 8 sizes, printed on polycotton canvas and 3.8cm wooden frame. We picked a panoramic canvas, 61cm x 30.5cm (RRP £49.99)
The photo canvas are machine stretched and are delivered fully assembled, so you only need to put it up on the wall. You can choose whether you want to wrap the photo round edges or opt for a white border. We picked to have a canvas wrap and hubby loved the quality of the canvas and quick delivery.
Canvas are a great Father’s Day gift, you can choose your dad’s favourite photo and print it on your preferred format and size. Hubby loved his canvas and proudly placed it in our living room.
Moonpig, in addition to their well known personalised cards, have just confirmed a brand new range of products, some of which can be personalised. I have noticed on their website they are offering free card with selected beer, wine and spirits gifts.
Dad’s Beer Fest Bundle 2013 (RRP £30) is Moonpig’s star gift, it comes with three ales from Black Sheep Brewery, which can be personalised with your own message: Black Sheep Golden Sheep, Black Sheep Ale and Black Sheep Riggweler. It also includes a cute “No 1” Dad pint glass and a coaster.
Dad’s Beer Fest comes with a selection of popular beer snacks including a packet of ‘Awfully Posh’ hot chilli pork scratchings, Captain Tiptoes chilli harissa nuts, and a cup of Montezuma’s chocolate covered nuts. Needless to say, Beer Fest Bundle was a success with hubby! You can go wrong with beer and snacks, especially with cute personalised labels and a personalised card to go with it. Daddy loved it!

If dad loves cars, but your budget can’t stretch to a car, I’m sure he would love a car from Matchbox’s 60th anniversary die-cast vehicle collection.
To commemorate the brand’s 60 year anniversary, Matchbox has released a collectible die-cast line of 24 vehicles that harkens back to its roots to celebrate its birthday. The assortment features some of the best-loved classic vehicle models, each of which comes with its own retro matchbox sized box!
The Matchbox 60th Anniversary die cast assortment is suitable for ages 3+, priced at around RRP £3.49 per vehicle. The cars appeal to both boys and dads as they’re a collector’s item. Hubby is still a boy at heart, so he loves the cars and he thinks they offer a great bonding time with little man.
Matchbox fans can also view the 60th anniversary anthem video, which captures the spirit of the brand; unstoppable vehicles for heroic adventures at www.Matchbox.com/Heroes.
If your dad prefers grooming gifts, look out for the next Father’s Day Gift Guides over the next couple of days. Whatever you are doing on Sunday 16th June, hope dad has a lovely Father’s Day!
