Father's Day Gift Ideas 2014

When it comes to gifts, women are so much easier to buy for as there's always something cute or quirky that they'll like. With men, it gets a little bit more tricky... As Father's Day is approaching, I thought I'd gather together a few ideas and hopefully you'll find something here suitable for the 15th of June.


I received this from Treat Republic, a fantastic site to visit if you're looking for anything unique or personalised. You can even get your dad's name put onto the front but I opted to just have "DAD" on there. It's sturdy and great for use outdoors. If your dad loves gardening, get him one of these so he can keep his tea/coffee warm.


Some men love being creative in the kitchen so if your dad is one of those men then get him something that others don't have. This is also from Treat Republic and it's such a unique item. Looks like a pencil sharpener but much bigger! There is a peeler on the back (pretty much the same as a standard potato peeler) and then a sharpener at the front where you can create interesting slices of carrots to garnish over salads or simply sharpen your vegetables.


Continuing with the giant sharpener theme, this would make a great gift if he works in an office. Who wants a boring pencil pot when they can have something a bit more impressive like this? It would certainly make his desk more interesting to work at and it makes a great talking point too.

Personalised Classic Car Show Biscuit Tin
Got a dad who loves cars? If you can't afford to get him a brand new car then this is the next best thing. It's delicious and looks amazing. Biscuiteers are known for making the most beautifully designed biscuits and these will be sure to impress on Father's Day. I often find myself scrolling through their website just to get some inspiration when icing my own biscuits. They look too good to eat sometimes!

A lot of people are compiling bucket lists these days so if your dad is someone who is itching to try something new and get out there then this is the perfect book to kickstart a few ideas. It's never too late to find that adventurous streak.

If in doubt then go for chocolate, that's unless he absolutely hates chocolate in which case don't go for chocolate... No shame in opting for a box of Quality Street but I always prefer something a bit different. These golf ball chocolates would be especially wonderful for any sporty dads.

What do you think of these gift ideas?
Are you all sorted for Father's Day?
