Father's Day - Go To Gift Guide 2022

 Father's Day - Go To Gift Guide 2022

Happy June everyone! It's that time of year again when many of us are thinking about what to buy our loved one this Father's Day. We all have our own father figures and hero's that we'd like to treat on this special day. We don't make a big deal of these days in our house but we tend to buy small 'token' gifts just so they don't feel too left out in the social media craze.

This year I've picked a small handful of great gifts to show you to help you on your search. I have everything from cool footwear, to delicious hampers, engraved gifts and more. 

First up I have these Crossfly boxers which are a total game changer. 

They provide 24 hour comfort and clever access -  Fabric: 95% modal / 5% elastane

The Ikon X 6" Boxer is the ultimate premium men's underwear, combining two patent pending technologies. The X-Fly provides fast and easy access with its clever design whilst the Cocoon internal pocket support system minimises chafing, providing optimal comfort and support. Teamed with super-soft Modal fabric, these will become your go to favourites.

The normal RRP is £24.99 per pair but they are on sale at the moment so go check them out. My husband has completely fell in love with these, he says they're so comfortable that you totally forget that you're even wearing them - so they're a huge hit in our home. 

Next up I have these super cool Fred Perry Underspin Tipped Cuff Trainers from Mainline Menswear which has a massive selection of gifts to choose from this year. 

The Fred Perry Underspin Tipped Cuff Trainers In White, lace fastening in white with silver coloured metal eyelets and off white woven uppers with white top stitching. They have a lovely tipping detail around the cuff in red, navy and white. A canvas trim on the tongue in off white and the signature Fred Perry Laurel logo is embroidered on the outstep in navy on a white strip. A vulcanised rubber sole featuring a textured toe guard in white and the Fred Perry Laurel logo to the back in navy. They're sure to make any Dad look cool. RRP £65.

The Personalised Bubble Base Whisky Glass Tumbler RRP's at £19.99. It's a straight sided classic whisky glass with a stylish bubble in the base, beautifully presented in luxury silk lined presentation packaging. This personalised whisky tumbler combines style with durability. The air bubble, captured in the base of the glass, individualises this rocks glass with character making it particularly suitable for the modern whisky lover. Precision laser engraving cuts a beautiful impression which makes for a personal and special gift. It's medium in size and measures 90mm high with a diameter of 80mm. Signature packaging is fab.

Ticket to Ride London is just one of the many versions available. Welcome to the ’70s world capital of fashion and music. Jump aboard a famous double-decker bus to rumble through London’s historic streets, breeze past Buckingham Palace, pop into the British Museum or listen to Big Ben’s chime echo across the Thames. In this fast paced Ticket to Ride game, players race one another to claim the most important bus lines and complete their Destination Tickets, connecting Districts in the capital of the United Kingdom. The elegantly simple gameplay of this stand-alone version of Ticket to Ride is ideal for both beginners and more.

My next games, activities are these lovely Ugears 3D models

They're a nice little gift idea for those who like a special drink at home.

Last up I have some rather cure Father's Day Cards from And Hope Designs.

These sweet cards are made with so much love and cost around £3.50 each. I love the, Daddy Bear You are My Hero Card - a lightly textured premium card with an illustration of a bear flying with a red “super bear” cape on, and the words “you are my hero” hand lettered. 

 The illustrated bear is super fluffy, furry and has a kind face. This card was designed as a Father’s Day card for giving to a daddy bear, this illustrated super hero bear card is suitable for many an occasion, as it is blank inside and dads are not the only heroes in our lives.
