Father's Day 2018 Gift Guide

Father’s Day is fast approaching. This year it is on Sunday 17th June. And now is the perfect time to start planning and purchasing the gifts. I have put together a selection of some of mine and Mr.H's favourite gifting options. So, if you're stuck for gift ideas, have a look at the guide. It features products for every budget and I hope it will help those of you who are struggling for ideas.
Fathers Day 2018 Gift Guide


Dobell Dark Blue Herringbone Tweed Jacket, £89.99 


Mr.H is very particular about his clothing and only picks stuff that matches his quality and style criteria. Recently he got the chance to pick a piece of clothing from Dobell and he was left impressed. There was so much choice and after much deliberation he picked a Dark Blue Herringbone Tweed Jacket.

For those of you who haven't heard of Dobell, they are a leading online formal wear store for men and boys of all ages. On their site you will find an extensive range of tuxedos, men’s suits, shirts, shoes and accessories from brands like Paul Costelloe, Tommy Hilfiger, Noose & Monkey, Esprit, Lambretta, Paul Gross, and Alexander Dobell (their in-house label). Dobell specialises in fine tailoring (in-house) and being online only they are able to offer quality products at affordable prices. Coming back to the jacket that Mr.H picked; it is a wool blend, single breasted, tweed jacket and makes a nice addition to Mr.H's smart casual wardrobe. It is of an excellent quality (great material), very well tailored and has a comfortable fit and at a price of £89.99 it is a steal! And Mr.H looks quite dapper in it.

If you are looking to buy your dad (or any other man in your life) a quality jacket at an affordable price, check out the collection at Dobell.

Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5 Sense Razor, RRP £12.00 


Wilkinson has a number of inexpensive and stylish grooming products like the Hydro 5 Groomer (a 4-in-1 styling tool) priced at £14.99, the Hydro 3 (priced at £7.99) or the Hydro 5 Sense Razor featured in this round up. The Hydro 5 Sense makes use of a shock-absorb technology which auto-adjusts the amount of pressure it is putting on the face, giving the user the ultimate customised shave. My brother has used this and according to him the razor is comfortable to hold and manoeuvre across the face. It gives a good close shave without having to go over an area many times. It also has a flip trimmer for precise trimming.

Personalised Malt Whisky with Gift Box, From £30.99 


If you are looking for a personalised gift for Father's Day, then I would recommend checking out www.findmeagift.co.uk. They have an impressive range of bespoke presents for dads like personalised tools, message in a bottle gifts, photo gifts, novelty mugs and personalised alcohol gifts like the one featured in this guide.

If your father's favourite tipple is Scotch then this bottle of personalised Malt Whisky would make a wonderful gift for him. There is a choice of two malts - a premium 12 year old Single malt whisky or a top quality Single malt Scotch whisky, which has been matured in specially selected oak casks! Whichever option you choose, you can have it personalised and also pick from one of the two presentation boxes available - either a gold gift carton or a silk lined gift box. As you can see from the photos, I chose the silk lined gift box and it is fabulous! I ordered this for my husband and he loved it; such an excellent gift idea according to him. The packaging was luxurious and the personalisation made it even more special. Mr.H says he is going to retain the bottle once the whisky is finished and fill it up with his regular whisky! I would too, if the bottle had my name on it :) An excellent keepsake!

If whisky is not your dad's favourite tipple, you can check out FindMeAGift's collection of other alcohol gifts including beer, wine as well as a variety of drinking accessories many of them with the option of personalisation. Do check them out!

Braun Series 5 Men’s Electric Foil Shaver, Wet & Dry, with Clean & Charge Station, RRP £249.99 


For the dad who loves the clean shaven look, Braun's Series 5 5197cc would make an excellent gift. The electric shaver gives efficiency in every stroke, shaving even dense beard and reaching difficult areas. The razor is 100% waterproof and has designed to last up to 7 years. Some of the key features of this model include: an AutoSensing motor that reads the beard and constantly adapts to its density for an efficient and comfortable shave, an 8 direction comfort head that offers flexible shaving even in difficult areas, an ActiLift Trimmer that captures flat-lying hair and hair growing in different directions. Cool! In addition it features 2 SensoFoil™ blades that shave as close as 0.058mm and perfectly protect the skin for lasting smoothness. An excellent shaver it is. And it deserves suitable cleaning and care which is offered by the included Clean&Charge Station. According to Braun, it is world’s only 3 action alcohol based Clean&Charge station that removes 99.9% of germs making it 10x more hygienic than under running water.

This really is a fantastic shaver. Highly recommended! Check out Braun's other products here. uk.braun.com

This Chrome Edition razor from Gillette features 5 anti-friction blades for a close and comfortable shave and a chrome effect handle that adds to the style.

Regatta Men's Samaris Mid Hiking Boots, RRP £100.00 (on sale currently at £39.95) 


The Samaris Mid Hiking Boots with a streamlined, lightweight structure are excellent for hiking. The boots are well-made with endurance mesh uppers that are engineered with extra space around the toes to allow for natural movement on climbs. This is an excellent feature for those who need extra room around the toes. The boots have 'Hydropel' technology that efficiently disperses mud and water and a waterproof/breathable Isotex membrane that keeps feet dry inside and out. Mr.H has been using these boots for many months now and he has found them very comfortable and the boots have performed well on all kinds of terrain - from paved paths to boggy puddles to rocky mountain trails. The grip has been good. This could be attributed to the hardwearing carbon outsole and a multi-directional cleat pattern that delivers excellent traction and shock absorption on and off the trail. If your father does a lot of walking, then a good pair of boots are extremely important and this pair from Regatta would be a good choice.
