Father’s Day is coming up and it’s often quite tricky trying to find the perfect idea so here’s a little selection of some fabulous finds which may help to inspire your gift giving this year.
A chocolate factory based in Wales with a huge variety of unusual flavours in their repertoire which caught my eye including Lemon sherbet, and orange marmalade. They also have a platinum ticket search – so if you find one of two lucky bars you’re in for a real treat!
Turn up the Heat
Also based in Wales, Pembrokeshire Chilli Farm is make chilli-based sauces – ranging from mild to very hot. I’ve noticed a ghost chilli which would certainly go down well with lots of dads I know– but I also want to flag they can now offer personalised labels at no extra charge, so maybe there’s an “in” joke or funny pub you might be able to share with dad which would make this the ideal gift.
The perfect scent
You really can’t go wrong if you choose to buy an aftershave. I do love seeing gift sets for layering fragrance and there’s so many different men’s aftershaves available now. As Father’s Day is on the approach to the summer holidays I think this miniatures set is ideal for packing away and might be a chance to explore some new scents.

One of my more expensive picks for the guide is this beautiful gift set from Idyll Home I think this personalised tool set is a great as it means you might be off the hook with having to cook a special meal as dad will want to get straight on with using these!

“Adorable, gorgeous, amazing” – just three of the words regularly used by friends everywhere when Bobby and Bubba, of the British bulldog breed, venture onto the streets of Chelsea in London.
The biggest celebrity cult since ‘Made in Chelsea’, the two brothers have already appeared on TV, magazines and their own Instagram page without letting on just how really naughty they are.
These are their little stories… written for children of all ages, for families to enjoy together, particularly if you’re a parent looking for a way to break the vice-like grip of the iPhone and the internet on growing minds. They’re lovable, funny, poignant and even a tiny bit exciting – much like Bobby and Bubba themselves.
Keep it simple with t shirts and socks
If you’re going to opt for the standard t shirt and socks for the kind of dad who really needs these essential items then I think it’s worth pushing the boat out and ordering them soemthing they wouldn’t usually buy for themselves Opting for something from the Hugo Boss menswear Collection offers quality and luxury which makes even the most simple of gifts a little bit special

I recently had a chance to visit the recently reopened Loughborough branch of Go Outdoors and managed to pick up some bargains for our fun filled adventures. One thing Arlo and his dad live doing together is fishing so I managed to pick up some new accessories in store including a tackle box for them to share and a folding chair in the form of a frog for Arlo to be able to sit beside his dad. No matter the hobby there’s bound to be something you could pick up in store.
