Father’s Day is right around the corner on Sunday 17th June! This is a perfect chance to show dads how much we appreciate them.
I’ve put together a handy Father’s Day Gift Guide with Debenhams for you, with all of my top picks for what you can buy – for your children’s daddies, your own dad, or any other fathers or father figures in your life! It really is the thought that counts. So I’ve picked out some ideas for all budgets. Whether you went to spend a little or a lot, there’s an idea for you!
I think the personal touch makes a gift so much more special. So I’ve also included a fun and easy idea for homemade gift wrap that your kids can make! You know how much I like homemade gift wrapping 😉
We are going to take this opportunity to really show The Hubster how much we love and appreciate him. It’s been a busy few months and I honestly don’t know what we would have done without him! Since our move from San Francisco to Cambridge he’s been so busy both working and looking after his family. Whilst being a fun dad too! We’re treating him a bit this Father’s Day, so I’ll let you know our picks especially for him too. (Hope he’s not reading…)
Disclosure: This was part of a Debenhams Father’s Day campaign. All picks and opinions are honest and my own.
Father’s Day Gift Guide with Debenhams
Ralph Lauren Polo Sport Eau de Toilette
How about a fresh new after shave for summer time? You can’t go wrong with Ralph Lauren and at last check the Polo Sport after shave was on sale, making this a great value gift too. It’s a clean and crisp scent, perfect for active dads. Winner!
Phillips Click & Style Shave and Style
The Hubster has been after a new electric shaver for a long time, so we’ve decided to treat him! There’s a whole range of great quality shavers at Debenhams. This Phillips Click & Style Shaver is a fab buy if you want to splurge a bit, but also get good value. It has easy click on/click off shaver and beard trimmer attachments, plus can be used wet in the shower. Perfect for men who want to get ready all in one step (i.e. one shower and done!)
Regatta Grey Wash Case
I love this Grey ‘Burford’ Wash Case from Regatta. It’s made from water resistant fabric with a zippered closure and easy grab handle. Nice and practical to stash all dad’s wash gear. I love the beachy colours and style. This would be perfect for any summer trips away or camping holidays.
Mantaray Orange Textured Stripe Polo Shirt
You can’t beat a nice polo shirt for the summer. There’s a whole range of lovely polo shirts at Debenhams, I especially like the Mantaray shirts – lots of stripes and lots of blues! This textured stripe polo shirt comes in both orange and turquoise colour themes – all the colours of the beach 🙂 (I’ve bought one of these for my own daddy. Shhh…!)
Hammond & Co Tan Leather Belt
My hubby loves belts and wears them regularly. There’s lots of belts to choose from, I especially like this Hammond & Co tan leather belt. It’s made from 100 % luxury Italian leather and finished with a silver-toned buckle. This looks smart for work days, but could also be worn with more casual trousers and t-shirt as well. I think The Hubster will love this!
Maine Grey Knitted Thermal Beanie Hat
Do you have a hat loving dad in your life? My hubby loves hats and can never have enough of them! We finally picked this grey knitted thermal beanie hat by Maine New England. He’s been wanting a beanie hat. This will be warm for more blustery days (which let’s face it, we get a lot of!) It comes in a knitted finish, with a super-soft fleece lining for added comfort.
Blunt Blue Compact Umbrella
I’m loving this compact and funky umbrella! It offers an easy-to-store compact design with a handy cover. Featuring ‘Blunt XS_Metro’ technology on the tips of the canopy edge to aid in performance and safety, it is finished with a secure wrist strap. I love this electric blue colour – enough to brighten up the rainiest of days!
That’s my Father’s Day Gift Guide! I hope that you find something to wrap up ready for dad! There’s heaps more fab finds for dads over on the Debenhams Father’s Day Gifts page, so do have a browse to find something special.
Once you’ve finished your shopping, I’ve got an easy and fun homemade gift wrap activity that the kids can do! All you need to do is decorate parcel paper with your kids hand prints! Or you could use foot prints (if you are feeling brave…)
Homemade Gift Wrap
Your kids can do this as an outdoor activity and have some fun too, whilst making some colourful gift wrap for dad (or grandad’s) fab present. All bases covered!
All you need is:
- Brown Parcel Paper
- Washable Paint – variety of colours
- Paper plates or paint palettes
- Large paint brushes
- Plastic sheet, or newspaper
This is a perfect activity to do outside, now the days are getting warmer. You can contain any mess outside, then get the kids straight in the bath! But you can also cover a table inside or put a plastic sheet on the floor instead.
Get overalls on and cover a large surface or area with a plastic sheet, news paper, or scrap paper. If you are outside you’ll need to weigh it down with some stones (or paint pots!)
Roll out a section of the brown parcel paper and weigh it down as well.
Get painting! Brush different coloured paints onto your kids hands, or older ones can do this themselves. Print onto the paper.
You might like to set up a little ‘wash station’ with a bowl of water, some soap and a towel. Children can wash their hands in between colours. I think my kids enjoyed washing their hands even more than the painting! 😉
Repeat the hand painting with lots of different colours. Print onto any length of paper that you need for dad’s gift.
Allow to dry while you get cleaned up!
LP and Little M had great fun doing this! Now we just have to wrap up daddy’s gifts and we are all ready for Father’s Day. I think we’ll take The Hubster for a trip out somewhere and treat him to lunch too!
What are you doing for Father’s Day? Are you treating dad to any gifts?
