Father's Day Gift Guide
How is it June, JUNE! Where has the year gone, I feel as though I had so many plans for 2016 but the year has gone by so quickly, so 2017 watch out, I'm coming for you...Father's Day is almost here and if your dad is anything like mine then you'll probably be dreading buying gifts. My dad is so difficult to buy for, he always just wants the same aftershave every time but I want to get him something new and unexpected so I hope these gifts will fit the bill.

*Great Maps by Jerry Brotton (£12, sale) 
My dad doesn't read as much as I do but I think he'd definitely be interested in this book and lets be honest, it looks gorgeous and it's massive! The book comprises the history of maps, from ancient maps to google earth. I've been flicking through it and it's so interesting - both my dad and myself adore history so I think this will be perfect for him as it's a book you can dip in and out of. It also looks gorgeous on the bookcase; I think it will be a great father's day gift for dads, guardians or granddads who are book lovers or who love history.

*SugarSin Caramel Fizz Jellies (£2.10, sale) 
I freakin' love the packaging - the teal blue and copper is a gorgeous combination so aesthetically it would make a great little gift. The jellies are all natural, gluten free, palm oil free and they are vegan which is amazing and to be honest as soon as I saw that they were vegan, I had to eat them...sorry dad. I didn't expect to like them as much as I do, they are a little unusual but they are so good. I was surprised at how sour they where which I LOVE. My dad won't be getting these as they are now mine, oops #SorryNotSorry

*Noble Isle Fireside Body Lotion 
I have tried a few minis from Noble Isle and I have adored them, especially the body lotions and the shower gels. They all feel so indulgent and luxurious so they'd make perfect gifts. The fireside scent is heavenly; so masculine and musky! Noble Isle have some fantastic gifts set too and The Inside Man has a massive 40% off Father's Day items so you can get a great deal on gifts - go, go, go!
Father's Day Gift Guide
I think my dad will love all of those gifts, especially the book! He is really picky to buy for so clothing, music, dvds and chocolate is off the list so I am a bit limited - I wanted to get him something he doesn't have but also something that he could use all of the time and MenKind came to the rescue! 


My dad is one of those dads who has two tool boxes, who knows everything about DIY and who is always asked to do little (or massive) DIY jobs for family members and around our house so I thought, what better gift than a portable and super compact multitool from the makers of the famous swiss army knife - Victorinox. It has ten features including: a nail file, ballpoint pen, ruler (cm), ruler (inches), letter opener, tweezers, toothpick, stainless steel pin and a quadruple screwdriver - the latter I know my dad will love and use the most. You wouldn't think that so many little tools can fit into such a thin and compact credit card sized item but they do. 

I think it is a fantastic, high quality and super useful Father's Day gift and it's really compact so it should fit into a credit card slot because you never know when you will need a four cornered screwdriver right...it's definitely not my thing but I know my dad will be really happy with it. I have the black one but it also comes in red too: it comes nicely packaging and it looks a bit more expensive than it actually is. MenKind have so fantastic gift ideas and products that would be perfect for Father's Day such as mugs, speakers, kitchen and BBQ gadgets, sport related gifts and some lovely personalised gifts - I think personalised gifts are some of the nicest and most thoughtful gifts you can give/receive. There is a personalised BBQ tool gift set that I know my dad would love and the weather in England has been so nice over the past few weeks that it may be time to dust off the long forgotten barbecue, although now that I've type that, it will probably rain for weeks, sorry everyone! Father's Day Gift Guide
*Grow Me Snore Ease Seed Kit (£3.99)
Annoyingly I completely forgot to photograph this last Father's Day gift but I'm going to mention it anyway. My dad is the worlds worst and loudest snorer, it's just a fact so when I came across this on the I Just Love It website, I knew it was perfect for him. It's a cutely packaging eucalyptus seed kit and eucalyptus is supposed to help reduce or stop snoring. It's a great price and a cute little gift for Father's Day.  There are other variations of seed kits from this brand too including a sunflower, coffee bean, lucky clover, basil and beer hops kits.

I think all of these gifts would be great for Father's Day and I know my dad will love them! I have a few other Father's Day gift guide posts on my blog already including one featuring some fantastic American Crew products. Now onto my super short gift guide video:
