Fathers Day Gifts - The Gift Guide For All.

 Fathers Day Gifts  - The Gift Guide For All. 

Fathers Day is on it's way! Sunday June 20th is just over 2 weeks away so I'm here with my Fathers Day Gift Guide for All to help you find the perfect gift for your Father/Dad/Loved one.

I have something for every budget, from pocket money spenders to big spenders.

I've got a lot of 'personalised' gifts this year because they're my favourite kind of gifts.

First up, I have the Big Boys Box Food Hamper from Buyagift - £26.99

I love a good hamper and this one is no different. It's a well wrapped gift box of assorted tasty sweets and savoury snacks for the man in your life. It contains: Crunch Craving Chilli Coated Peanuts 100g, Ten Acre The Amazing Adventures of Salt and Vinegar Hand Cooked Crisps 135g, GNAW Milk Chocolate Buttons 150g, Mighty Fine Milk Chocolate Honeycomb Bar 30g, Radfords Handmade West Country Vanilla Fudge 85g, Yorkshire Popcorn Salted 40g, Wold Top Scarborough Fair IPA 500ml and Wold Top Hello Velo 500ml. It's a nice selection!

Next up, I have Wells Thea Silver Tone & Grey Aviator Sunglasses from Trend Him - £45.

These Classic aviator sunglasses have a stainless steel frame and offer 100% UV protection. They're very snazzy and come in a cute tri fold storage box, with a nice pouch and cleaning cloth included too. They're the perfect gift for Fathers Day and the upcoming Summer time.

Next up, a selection of Personalised Gifts from Printster. Prices start from £4.99.

I absolutely love these and they're so affordable. The Photo mug with message (£5.49) and the Magic mug (£6.99) are both so lovely and make perfect gifts that will last. The 'In Your Face' wrapping paper (£4.99) is so funny. I can't wait to see Daddy's face when he sees it.

Printster have everything from personalised wrapping paper, to coasters and socks!

Next up, HARIBO Starmix and Football Mix - from £1 a bag.

If you want a gift that is as sweet as Starmix, their cute gift box packed with the iconic Egg, Ring, Bear, Cola Bottle and Heart shaped pieces is a real treat. A family favourite for over 25 years, the Starmix gift box will certainly deliver a moment of childlike happiness for Dad.

And just in time for the EURO's - The Football Mix. With its football shaped, fruity pieces you’ll be sure to score with this pocket money gesture for all those footy fans out there! 

Both products are stocked in Heron Foods, B&M, Sainsbury’s, Spar and Co-op.

Next up, Barrington Watch Winders - £149

Barrington Watch Winders are my highest priced gift but they are a special gift for the watch lovers in your life. Barrington create a wide range of watch winders for luxury automatic watches which can be operated either by AC mains or two AA batteries, feature an ultra-quiet Japanese motor, multiple rotation settings (clockwise, counterclockwise or alternating) and multiple turns per day (TPD) settings from 650, 750, 850, 1000 or 1950 to suit any weight of watch. Not only are these watch winders an amazing way to care for and store your watches, but they come in a variety of beautiful colours, in a sleek and minimal design so they look great on every desk, shelf, or bedside table. I think you’ll agree that good quality watches are something of an investment, and that it’s important to protect that investment. Watch winders are a pretty niche product in the wider world but of course are more well known amongst watch enthusiasts. They’re intended to care for automatic watches by keeping them in perpetual movement, like they would be on your wrist, when they’re not in use. This not only ensures that your watch will keep ticking on forever, but also means you don’t have to set the date and time every time you pick it up after a little while without wear. Sounds awesome.

Next Up, Wise(ish) Words By Dennis from The Book of Everyone - £20.

Wise(ish) Words By Dennis is a personalised book that will have you chuckling from cover to cover. It’s full of stunning Beano illustrations all set to Dennis’s Wise(ish) Words on life.

After the last year, perhaps Dennis’s spirit is just the respite we need. Especially those Dads who’ve been through so much. Reconnecting with your inner child is good for the soul and what kids adore about their dads. I love that you can add photographs of your Dad inside.

Next up, a Personalised Plant Pot from Cool Pots - £18.99.

This one's a quirky personalised plant pot from Cool Pots where you can upload a photo to put your dads face on it. Cool Pots also give the option of adding multiple faces on the design, so you can even upload yours or perhaps include the dogs face! They have 36 fun and colourful designs, so there is no doubt that you will find the perfect pot for your dad.

I can't wait to grow a Sunflower in this to give Daddy some bright yellow hair!

Next up, Chocolate Coated Nibble Collection from Conscious Chocolate - £6.99

This little gift set includes an Award Winning collection of three amazing 50g Nibbles.

Chocolate Brazil Nuts, Salted Chocolate Dates, Chocolate Orange Figs.

This collection Conscious Organic, Vegan and Raw Coated Chocolate nuts are fruits are the ultimate in Conscious sharing & nibbles! This will blow you away and you will find yourself coming back for more! The range are all free from gluten, soya, dairy and refined sugars.

It's a nice lower priced gift for the chocolate lovers out there.

Next up, Daim and Toblerone Cheesecakes - £3.50 each.

If you are inviting Dad over for a celebratory lunch in the garden then how about having one of these amazing Cheesecakes in the freezer ready? These have been combined with two of our favourite chocolate bars to create delicious desserts which are ready to serve. Yummy!

The newest Daim product, which you’ll find in the freezer of your nearest Tesco, is a delicious, handcrafted baked cheesecake on a chocolate flavoured biscuit base, topped with smooth milk chocolate ganache and those familiar crunchy Daim pieces.  And The Toblerone Cheesecake is a delicious, handcrafted, creamy cheesecake on a chocolate flavoured biscuit base, topped with Toblerone’s smooth milk chocolate. Now available from the freezer aisle of your nearest Asda, B&M Stores, Morrisons and Tesco. They both sound delicious!

Well that's it. That;s my choice of Fathers Day Gifts for this year. I really hope it helped you find a gift you liked or at least gave you some ideas for what you'd like to buy your Father.

Happy Fathers Day Everyone! xox

Who Knew Fuller Bust Lingerie could Be So Pretty - Tutti Rouge #Review

 Who Knew Fuller Bust Lingerie could Be So Pretty.

My Tutti Rouge Review.

Growing up in the 90's with a fuller bust often meant that my lingerie was big, bulky and very boring. I don't think I ever owned anything that I though was remotely 'pretty'. My lingerie was  more practical than pretty. Just getting my size was often a challenge so beggars couldn't be choosers, you just had to take what you were lucky enough to find in your size.

But all that times have changed now and I am so happy to say that Fuller Bust Lingerie CAN be pretty! Just take a look at what I found at Tutti Rouge. Com - Aren't they lovely?

This is the Hallie Bralette and kit's absolutely gorgeous. Mine is in a size 32FF but it's available in all sizes ranging from a 30DD to a 48FF/G which is perfect for me. I really love the feel of the Lace and mesh cups, they're so soft and I love the super the thick underband too which gives it extra support. It also has the cutest Adjustable straps with gold hearts on.

It fits so well and feels so good on. I absolutely love this bralette.

There's also the matching pair of Hallie Brazilian's for the full set. Again they come in the signature Rougette lace with a Scalloped edging and a deep waistband for added comfort. They're available in sizes Small to 6XL. I love the detail on the lace, it makes them so pretty.

For something a little more practical but still just as pretty, I found this Easy Tee T Shirt Bra which also has matching Easy Tee Brazilians. It's super smooth feel not only gives fabulous shape but amazing comfort too. It's graduated pads give a little uplift whilst offering that everyday comfort and support that you need. I love that it's smooth on the front yet has gorgeous lace on the back. It really makes it different and so much more pretty than my usual lingerie. Again it has the cutest adjustable straps with those little gold hearts which I love.

My cute set, shown above, are in a size 32FF and a Small but again this gorgeous set comes in a whole range of sizes from a 30D to a 38G and a size Extra Small to 6XL. 

It's so nice to finally have affordable lingerie that feels good looks pretty on. So for me, thanks to Tutti Rouge, it's goodbye dull and boring and hello cute, pretty and fresh! Pretty lingerie makes me so happy.Tutti Rouge has some gorgeous lingerie, you should go check it all out.

ZeroWater’s 12 Cup Water Filter Jug + It's 5 Stage Ion Exchange Filtration System #Review

 ZeroWater’s 12 Cup Water Filter Jug + 

It's 5 Stage Ion Exchange Filtration System Review.

The sun has got it's hat on, hip hip hip hooray! The sun has got his hat on and I'm coming out to play! More sun for me means feeling hotter which in turn means I need to drink water.

I'm not a huge fan of drinking tap water as it doesn't always taste very nice so I always add a drop of orange or blackcurrant cordial to make it taste better but now I don't have to as I've found a way to make my tap water taste better all by itself. Let me introduce you to my new best friend, my new 5 stage Ion Exchange Filtration system - ZeroWater's Filter Jug.

ZeroWater’s 12-cup water filter jug is the first in its class to benefit from a sealed lid and reservoir which allows filtered water to be poured while water which hasn’t yet been filtered remains in the reservoir. This adds a further 2 cups of capacity to the 10 cups of filtered water in the jug. It also features a one handed, pull and pour button spout for easy pouring from the fridge or for filling bottles. Unlike other leading water filter jugs, ZeroWater benefits from a patented, 5 stage Ion Exchange Filtration system which removes virtually all dissolved solids from your water. This provides great tasting water without the dissolved solids which may include Minerals, Salts, Metals, Chemicals and Runoff. Moreover, it reduces 99% of all Fluoride and other inorganics, such as Nitrates, from your water.

Four additional stages of water filtration ensure larger particles and other contaminants are removed, ensuring the filter delivers a “000” reading on the included laboratory grade water quality meter. I used the TDS Meter which is included with the jug to test my normal tap water and it read 055 which according to the chart is in the 'Typical' Range as most water in the UK falls into this grouping. The water looked fine and tasted ok but then I put it in the jug.

I love how quick the water filters through the jug, it hardly takes any time at all and is so easy to do. I took the jug out of the box, removed the lid from the filter and then screwed it into place. That was literally all there was to it, assembly wise and then I added my water.

I then tested my new filtered cup of water with the TDS Meter and it read 000. 

ZeroWater Technology is the only water filtration system to remove 99.6% of TDS, equivalent to TDS in purified bottled water. But what is TDS I hear you ask? TDS stands for = Total Dissolved Solids which refers to minerals, salts, metals including lead, chemicals, fluoride and runoff polluting your drinking water. My new ZeroWater jug is now sitting in my fridge.

At £39.99 it won't be long before you harvest the benefits of your investment. It's compact design means it will fit neatly into your fridge door. Just think of the reduction in your plastic consumption, the positive impact on the planet and your pocket. No more plastic waste.

With Summer just beginning, now's the perfect time to think about the water you drink. I'm so glad I tried the ZeroWater Filter Jug as it's benefits are fantastic and now I can even drink water on it's own with nothing added to it as it tastes great just by itself, that's pretty cool.

The ZeroWater 12 Cup Water Filter Jug gets a firm thumbs up from us here!
