Argh, it’s rolled around again. I could have sworn there was a whole other week left before Father’s Day, but no, here it is, this Sunday. So, if you’re like me and need to make the Dad in your life feel a million bucks, but have left it to the last minute, here’s a guide to gifts he’s sure to appreciate!
Skincare is definitely something not just important for the ladies anymore! Pamper the Dad in your life with these gorgeous sets from ClarinsMen! Choose from the ClarinsMen Age Control Programme ‘Energizing Experts’, or the ClarinsMen Hydration Champions to look after the skin your Dad is in! You can pick them up in Boots, Sam McCauleys, Debenhams, Brown Thomas and a range of other stockists.
The gift of binge-watching. If your dad hasn’t already got Netflix, he’s been missing out on the goings on of House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and so much more. For my own dad, it’s definitely gone down an absolute treat here – the only issue I’ve had is that he’s better at the binge-watching so I have to watch out for spoilers when I’m talking to him! You can get vouchers for Netflix in GameStop for €15, €25 or €50, so that he can try it for himself – or if he’s already a convert, that he doesn’t have to pay for his subscription for a while! Brand new series of House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black have just hit, and most big TV series are off on summer hiatus, it’s a good time to get stuck into something new!
Tile Mate BlueTooth Tracker
This has been an absolute game changer for me with finding my keys, I recommend them to absolutely everyone. It makes life a million times easier to not have to go hunting for them before every exit of the house! If your dad or the dad in your life has a habit of leaving down his keys/wallet and forgetting where it’s gone, one of these is definitely going to go down well. You can pick them up in PC World, Harvey Norman and a variety of other electronics shops, or over on Amazon if you’ve got a bit of time to spare!
If you’re looking for something a bit different last minute, you can’t go wrong with an experience voucher. Get him that chance to drive the Ferrari he’s been talking about since you were kids, or go all out and sign him up for a lesson behind the wheel of an army tank! If he’s been looking to get more into the outdoors, head off on a boating trip or head out to sea to check out the whales! If you’ve got a foodie type, there are incredible cookery day courses or tasting menus which he’s sure to love. There is literally an experience for everyone available, and the voucher can be organised for a date that suits you both.
Go Old School And Personal
If it’s truly last minute and you’re looking for something heartfelt, you really can’t beat the basics. If the Dad in question is Daddy to a small child, there’s lots of handprint art ideas which will go down an absolute storm. A nice handmade card with something heartfelt written inside is always well loved too. If you can spend time together letting him know you think he’s doing a great job as a Dad, that’s really the point of the whole day now isn’t it?
So, hopefully those will give you some ideas for the last minute gift that Dad is sure to love. What are your plans for Father’s Day this year?
