It’s that time of year again, it’s coming up to Father’s Day and for me I struggle with what to buy.
Not only do I need to buy for my Dad, I also buy Paul’s Dad’s present and then I need to get Paul a gift from the kids.
I’ve been searching around and have made a list of possible ideas to help organise myself:
17″ Laptop Bag by Lexon
This is a perfect gift for Paul from the kids, a light weight microfibre laptop case which is large enough to hold a laptop, phone, wallet and other documents.
Perfect for use at work or to take on a plane. The external pouch at the back of the case has a zip at the bottom so it can be attached to another piece of rolling luggage when travelling.
With 1 large internal compartment, a padded laptop compartment and 2 external compartments as well as a phone pocket, 2 pen pockets, lexon luggage tag, keyring holder, anodised aluminium handles and a detachable strap.
The quality of this bag is really good and it can hold a huge amount. Paul has had a laptop, notenook, pens, files, phone, charger, wallet and his keys inside and there is still room for more. It is comfortable to wear and to hold.
We gave Paul his gift early for an interview he was attending and he is thrilled with it, he is rather hard to please when it comes to bags as they are either to big or too small, have too many pockets or too few. He is yet to find something he doesn’t like.
This is priced at £50 and is available from www.giftswithstyle.co.uk
Afternoon tea for 2 at Hanbury Manor
I plan on treating my Dad to a little Daddy/Daughter time for his father’s day gift – lucky him! Hanbury Manor is 15 minutes down the road from his house. Historic and beautiful – Hanbury Manor is a stately Jacobean Country House set in 200 acres of Hertfordshire parkland.
I have been to many functions at Hanbury Manor, I’ve stayed at this Marriott Hotel and used the gym (perks of an old Nanny job) and Paul and I have also had dinner in this lovely restaurant. I thought it may be nice to treat my Dad to an afternoon just the two of us for a change and enjoy and a lovely lunch of finger sandwiches, pastries, scones and of course lots of tea.
He has been poorly and deserves a lovely treat and I think he will really enjoy this, being treated for a change because I love him (shhhh don’t tell him he will think I’m going soft)
Father’s day on a budget
If those options are a little too expensive or if the kids want to get Daddy a gift for themselves with their pocket money then Poundland
actually have a good range of inexpensive gifts ranging from wrapping paper and cards to a tie and cufflink set.
We were sent a selection of items for the kids to give to Daddy and considering they are priced at only £1 each I have to say I was rather impressed with the selection and choice available.
The Family guy beer glass and beer jacket are probably the favourites amongst the gifts and I know he wouldn’t appreciate the grow your own football pitch however I know many dad’s who would and for a pound each the kids really could buy these for themselves.
For the purpose of this post we have been sent the above items however this has not influenced our thoughts in anyway.
