Five things you could get your Dad for Father’s Day

Dad’s are easy to buy for aren’t they? A snazzy pair of socks and some beer and they’re happy. But surely we can do a bit better than that? Dad’s are brilliant and if you can’t treat them on Father’s Day, when can you? I’ve got a few nice ideas for things that aren’t socks to give your dad this Father’s Day.

If Dad is a fan of Star Wars, then he might like everyone’s favourite wingman, Chewbacca as a present. Posh Paws have recently released their Chewbacca range, featuring lots of our favourite characters from Star Wars.

If Star Wars isn’t this thing, then Hallmark have a really huge selection of Itty Bittys to choose from. Last year the boy painted a Superman mug for his Dad and we put a Superman Itty Bitty in it. They’ve got Marvel Itty Bittys, as well as  Disney, Star Wars, DC Comics, Super Hero Girls, The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Wizard of Oz, Peanuts and Wedding itty bittys.

We got one of these brilliant MANCUNIAN t-shirts for my other half last year. It was by far his favourite present of the year. From The Manchester Bee Company, this t-shirt is just £15 and is about the coolest thing a Manc can wear. They also have loads of other Manchester Bee themed gifts and t-shirts for Proper Mancs.

We love making memories, so a Merlin Annual Pass would make fora brilliant Father’s Day present. Whether you fancy the thrills and spills of Alton Towers or Chessington World of Adventures. Or if you love a bit of LEGOLAND or spending time at a SEA LIFE Centre, the Merlin Annual Pass is just the thing to help you and your family make memories.

If your Dad is more of a foodie, what about a nice hamper? A foodie treat always goes down well in our house. This hamper from is a lovely celebration of Australian food and drink, it was a real Father’s Day treat for my better half. Plus it’s just the thing to get delivered if you’re not going to see Dad on Father’s Day.

Lastly, don’t forget to buy your Dad a card. Hallmark have some lovely Father’s Day cards this year, something for every Dad, whatever he’s interested in. Personally the boy has plumped for the card with the badge on, because cards with badges are the best kind of cards!

What will you be buying the Dads in your life for Father’s Day? Have you got any exciting ideas planned? 

Father’s Day Gift Ideas with #TruprintDads

I am very lucky and incredibly grateful that I have three wonderful, wonderful men in my life. I’m not saying they’re perfect, but they are all fantastic in their own way. Father’s Day is just two short weeks away and I thought I’d plan ahead this year and sort out some gifts for my Dad (aka Grandad) and hubs (aka Daddy). The other man in my life is the small boy, who doesn’t as yet qualify for Father’s Day gifts as he’s only 4. But what do you buy the two men in your life who have absolutely everything they want or need?

There’s nothing that Grandad and Daddy like more in the world than sitting with a brew and putting the world to rights, so I figured photo-mugs, matching coasters and a nice card each would be a good start. I’d also fill each mug with their favourite tea bags (Tetley for Grandad, lemon and ginger for Daddy). A nice simple gift which I know they will both appreciate.  I chose to order from Truprint because I knew they had a really good selection of photo gifts.

The Father’s Day cards were really easy to design, cost just £2.49 each and are printed on good quality card too. Very cute, I know Gramps and Daddy will love them, especially once the small boy has “written” them.

For the main present I went for the 11oz photo collage mug which costs just £7.99 each, again it was really easy to design and I just used a selection of my favourite most recent photographs. Matching them with a set of six coasters, which I will split so they get two each and I get two (cheeky perks). The coasters are cork backed and nice quality, they cost £14.99 and you can mix and match or have all the same photo, I think they’re a great thing to order to split for smaller presents like I have done.

I also got a little jigsaw puzzle of Daddy and the small boy, it’s really a little thing for the boy because he loves puzzles and I suspect his mind will be blown by a puzzle with him on it! And just because I can, I bought myself an adorable new notebook for work. Pretty cute huh?
