Things I Love

My Top 5 Father’s Day Gifts from £10

Father’s Day. It can be a tricky one to buy for can’t it? Well, I find it difficult anyway, as neither my dad, nor Ryan like golf or football, which most Father’s Day gifts seem to involve. Last year, I got the girls to decorate plates and baked them in the oven. They really enjoyed it, and Ryan liked them too. But we can’t do that every year. So here are some ideas I have found for the Dads and Granddads in your life. Let’s show them how much we love them, and help support small businesses at the same time!

Minibook Photo Book from Social Print Studio

A few years back, I got this cute mini book of photos printed from my Instagram accountThis cute Social Print Studio Mini photo book makes the perfect Father's Day gift

The company I found them on, Social Print Studio, are American but they post to the UK and the rates are reasonable, and it’s fast delivery too, considering it’s coming such a long way.

You get two mini books for $15 so I got one for Ryan and one for my dad. They both loved them. You can get all sorts of other sizes, and I also got some Polaroid-style pictures printed up, which I we have up in our cloakroom. They are great quality, so I think I’ll be ordering some more.Polaroid stye Instagram pictures from Social Print Studio in Umbra snap frames

Craft Beer Subscription Service

I wish I had thought of this, but Ryan actually got this for himself! For £20 a month the Flavourly Craft Beer Club sends you ten different craft beers, along with a beer magazine: that’s only £2 a bottle, and postage is free. If you click through here, you’ll get £12 off your first craft beer box, and Ryan gets £5 off his next month. You can choose light or dark beers, or a mix, and they encourage you to rate and review each one, to help you get an even better selection next time. Flavourly Craft Beer Subscription - the perfect Father's Day giftOne of the things that really appeals to us is that it supports small independent breweries from all over the world, rather than the mainstream multinational companies. It’s also the gift that keeps on giving, as he’ll get more delivered every month. Ryan enjoys it so much more than the big named beer, as he loves trying new flavours. Plus, it’s cheaper than buying craft beers from a supermarket, and way more fun. Look at his face when the first delivery arrived!The Flavourly Craft Beer Subscription makes the perfect Father's Day gift for the beer lover in your family.

Personalised Father’s Day Oak Coaster

I just received this fab coaster from Bespoke & Oak* for my dad for Father’s Day (I’ve told him not to read this post, I hope he remembers) and I think he will love it. Bespoke & Oak personalised coasterIt’s £10 and can be personalised with several names and whatever your kids call their Granddad/Grandpa. There are several other designs too.

Cheese Making Kit

I got Ryan this Italian soft cheese making kit from Lakeland for Christmas, but it would make a good Father’s Day present too. We haven’t made it yet but it claims to be easy. It was £19.99 so not too much of an investment if it turns out to be difficult. There is also a bigger, more expensive version for hard cheese too.Mad Millie Italian Cheese Making Kit

Selfish Mother ‘Papa’ T-shirt

My Selfish Mother sweatshirt is one of my favourite pieces of clothing, so I’d like to get Ryan one of these ‘PAPA’ T-shirts. Selfish Mother Papa T-shirt

It’s £35, but £10 of that goes straight to Prostate Cancer UK, which is a brilliant cause, and it’s made from organic cotton.

If you like these ideas, why not Pin them to Pinterest for later?

So what do you think? Will you be buying any of these for Father’s Day? Do you have any great ideas? I’d love to hear them, please let me know!

*Please note, I was sent the coaster from Bespoke & Oak for the purposes of this review, and all opinions are my own, as usual.

    Ooh the beer subscription is a fab idea. I like the mini photo book as well. My hubby isn’t on social media (apart from FB which he never checks), so would be a good chance for him to see some of my instagrams of the girls. Fab ideas! Thanks for sharing Kathy xx #KCACOLS

    I don’t have any Father’s Day gifts to get, but I like your gift ideas. I have seen the cheese making kit around in The Good Food Shows that I go too, and they look quite easy and fun to do. If you make yours, I’d be intrigued to know how it turns out, as I often consider buying the kit, but haven’t yet.
