best dad gifts
Sunday 16th June 2019 is Father's Day. A special day to celebrate a special person in our lives. Whether it's a gift for Dad, Step Dad, Grandad or Great Grandad I have lots of ideas for you to help choose the perfect present.

Fathers Day Card
Whether you would prefer a traditional card or a humour card, Danilo offer a wide range for Dads and Grandads. The Ladybird retro cards are both nostalgic and humorous and Mrs Brown's Boys cards are perfect for fans of the show. All cards are available online with free UK delivery.

Nextbase dash cam
 The NextBase Dash Cam is perfect for any Dad's who like their gadgets. Recording at a high quality of 1080p and with built in wi-fi you can have perfect recordings of your travel sent direct to your phone or tablet.

snowball ice microphone
Another gizmo for Tech Savvy Dad's out there. Blue Snowball iCE is an easy plug in and play microphone giving you a better quality of sound on Skype, Windows Live, Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger and it looks great too.

Willow and stone red
Willow & Stone Red is a great value wine full of sweet blackberries and blackcurrant flavours. Delicious on its own, great with sticky spare ribs or barbecues.

More people are choosing low or non alcoholic beverages now and STRYYK is a zero-proof non alcoholic brand. NOT RUM is a unique mix of clove, oakwood, and grapefruit that creates a spirit that looks like rum and tastes like rum.

Ted baker socks gift pack
Father's Day wouldn't be the same without giving socks as a present. Mainline Menswear have Ted Baker Pole 3 Pack Socks Gift Set In Navy. Three pairs of soft cotton blend socks with ribbed ankle cuffs packaged in a metallic gift box.

Liquorice Tree
Sweet gifts are always a popular choice and the Liquorice Tree from Giftpup will definitely be a highlight this Father's Day. Standing 25cm tall and edible right down to the core it looks too pretty to eat, but i'm sure it will go down a treat. Personalisation is also available on the glass. 

Batman Jelly Belly
Jelly Belly have teamed up with DC Comics to launch a Superhero Collection. The Batman Super Hero Mix is full of shimmering Jelly Beans, perfect for your Super Hero. 

Best Dad Toblerone
My dad's favourite chocolate bar is Toblerone so it was the perfect Father's Day gift by GettingPersonal. I chose to personalise it with Best Dad however you can personalise it however you wish.

Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day will soon be here and if I am honest I haven't got a clue what we are buying Daddy yet. I usually sway to something related to technology because that is what Daddy loves. I know he would love an Apple iWatch but he might have to ask Father Christmas for that.
I do love buying little 'Daddy' gifts too such as teddies and mugs but we have so many and like I said recently about buying anniversary gifts there must come a point where you have to stop. 
Here are just a few choices that I may consider for Daddy.

Brothers By Willow Tree

Yesterday Daddy and I celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary. Its been a odd week with Daddy working lots and Big J on holiday in Spain. For most of the week it was just little J and I so we didn't make any specific Anniversary plans. Usually we will do something special but we decided to visit Alton Towers a few weeks earlier and maybe just go out for a meal on our actual anniversary.

Alternative Easter Gifts

When it comes to Easter I honestly feel sick sometimes with just how much chocolate we have in the house. Daddy, Big J and Little J love it but for me I would prefer to leave the chocolate in the shop where it belongs. 
The more chocolate we have the less I eat so it does wonders for my diet I suppose. If like me you don't like too much chocolate or prefer to give an alternative Easter gift check out my recommendations below.
Available now from George at Asda stores nationwide, the adorable T-shirt pictures Tatty Teddy wearing bunny ears and surrounded by Easter eggs.

RRP £5

What To Buy For Our 15th Valentines Day Together?

This Valentines Day will be my 15th with Daddy, oh how times flies. I think because we have been together so long it gets harder and harder to come up with a present for one another. We have done all the heart shaped cookies, red roses and Me to You bears so this year we are looking at something else to give each other, something a little different. We have been browsing Buyagift together and have come up with a few possible choices.
Double Supercar Driving Blast with Passenger Ride
So if I was going to choose a gift for Daddy I would definitely look in the Driving experiences, he has done one before and loved it. This caught my eye, its on offer at the moment too. You get the chance to drive two of the supercars for a full six miles. Now when it says passenger ride too, I thought it meant I could go in there too. There would be no way you would get me sitting in one of those cars as I don't like fast cars but it means a passenger ride with an expert. 
When Daddy did his driving experience a few years ago big J and I watched and it was actually a lot of fun even for the spectators. We made a day of it and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to live life in the fast lane.
Cream Tea and Steam Experience at Ravenglass

I am a little harder to buy for, I don't really want or need anything most of the time so Daddy finds it almost impossible. I am not a lover of material things unless its Disney related..haha, I do however love spending time with Daddy and my family. 
Daddy came up with the idea for Afternoon Tea. I do love afternoon tea and have been a few times and its just so relaxing, chilled and a very British thing to do. 
We browsed the selection of Afternoon tea experiences and we both agreed I would love the experience in the Lake District. 
I love the lake district, it was the first holiday we took together as a family almost 13 years ago and we have been many times since. Its not far from were we live and is easy to do in a day without the need to stay over. 

Three Course Meal with a Glass of Wine For Two at Prezzo

As a couple we love to spend time at the cinema, the theatre or going for a nice meal. Sometimes its nice just to step out of the 'Mummy and Daddy' shoes for a night, even if its just a couple of hours. Its nice to go for a meal without leaving the restaurant with stains on your clothes after you have tried to feed a toddler.

When we looked at the meal experiences we both decided on Prezzo. Its a restaurant we haven't visited before and there is a new one just opened close to us. A three course meal and a glass of wine sounds like the perfect way for us to enjoy some 'couple' time. 

So we are all booked in and really looking forward to it. Keep an eye out for my review later this week.
What are you buying for your loved one this Valentines Day?
