Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is on Sunday 21st June in the UK, that's just over a week away! So today I'm rounding up some of my favourite Father's Day gift ideas and hoping to inspire those of you who find it tricky, or have dads who are impossible to buy for.

Daniel Wellington Classic St Mawes Watch
A pricier option for a Father's Day gift, and maybe one to club together with your siblings to buy, but any father would be over the moon to receive this beautifully simple and classic Daniel Wellington watch. You can opt for a silver or rose gold case and a leather or canvas strap. The straps are also interchangeable so if your dad already owns a DW watch, a new strap could make an ideal gift. You can get 15% off with my voucher code 'thisfashionismine' on the Daniel Wellington website up until the 15th July.

Hotel Chocolat Father's Day Collection
Who can say no to chocolate!? Hotel Chocolat make wonderful, delicious, dreamy chocolates and put together collections for special occasions throughout the year. Their Father's Day collection includes a mini bottle of ruby port, a trio of pralines, a mini hazelnut bĂ»che and three of their bestselling nano slabs. It's £15 and well worth every penny. (and I'm pretty sure dad has to share it with you!)

The Library of Fragrance Unusual Scents
I've featured The Library of Fragrance on my blog a few times, their wonderfully wacky single-note fragrances are unisex and I've chosen Espresso and Dark Chocolate as my favourites for a male recipient! The scents are £15 each or two for £25 at Boots. Espresso is slightly sweeter than you may think, leaning more towards a cappuccino smell for me. Perfect for the coffee lover. Dark Chocolate smells heavenly, reminding me of chocolate cake batter just as it starts to rise in the oven. Mix the two together, and you have a chocolate coffee cake!

Mainline Menswear 'Pint of Thanks'
The team at Mainline Menswear who sell designer brands at fab prices have put together the perfect Father's Day prezzie; a pint glass, stuffed full of goodies! Included is an Armani t-shirt set, designer socks, a keyring bottle opener, mints and mini shaving creams. It's an idea I'm jumping on, simply roll and stuff a pint glass full of your dad's favourite things.

Magazine Subscriptions
You'd be surprised at how inexpensive and easy it can be to set up a magazine subscription as a gift. I use for my subscriptions, and they have loads of titles to choose from. From Men's Health to Gardener's World, Top Gear or GQ - you'll find something to suit his taste. Even if your dad has the world's weirdest hobby, have got you covered.They currently have some Father's Day offers running, with discounts on popular titles - for example you can get 12 issues of National Geographic for just £19. 

DIY Make it Yourself
If you prefer the home-made and presents with a personal touch, you might want to check out a few of my DIY tutorials, perfect for the men in our lives. DIY gifts are afforable and show the love and time you've put into them. I'm all for hand crafted gifts! I enjoy making them and I enjoy giving them! Check out my DIY Gifts for Men blog post and I think even my DIY Instagram Magnets would be well received if you used meaningful photos, you could even rifle through the old photo albums and use pictures from the past.
