• Father’s Day Gift Ideas ~ Daddy’s Choice

    Last week I shared with you Father’s Day gift ideas from my perspective. I looked at the gifts we’ve given my dad over the years and I thought this year we do them a little differently like gift him ‘Experience Days’. He used to love golfing when I was young so I figured it’s something I could make happen for him by booking him a day at the golf coast but then I thought what if I asked him what he really wanted? So the idea of daddy’s choice was born and since the idea cam to me late at night I texted him and he replied instantly. What he chose has really surprised me but also not surprised me at the same time.



    Unless you know me in person you wouldn’t know that my Father is a priest so it is no surprise that the first item on my dad’s choice of Father’s Day gifts is a Bible.

    Charcoal Grey Suit

    Not sure why but as he gets older he has started to love grey suits more than anything else. At church as a priest he has to wear black suit and tie with white shirt especially if he’s holding the sermon. Whenever he goes shopping with my mum he always talks about getting a grey suit. He does have two now, one he wore at my brother’s wedding last year and the other he’s worn to my graduation, my brother’s graduation, my sister’s graduation and he’s own graduation from university. I guess he really does love he’s grey suit.

    Grey necktie

    As I have mentioned above, he’s love for grey has been growing for the last few years now. I love how my daddy looks in he’s grey suit but not actually seen him wearing the grey necktie except for my graduation and my brother’s wedding.

    Black shoes

    This one is obvious as black shoes go with everything in everyone’s closet. He does have a number of black shoes but obviously he feels he needs new ones now. I am busy searching for deals on men’s shoes so I can grab him a pair.

    Shaving machine

    Growing up I remember my uncles used to joke how grand dad used to shave with a broken bottle, it was a family joke. Then I saw him using a broken bottle to shave and that scared the bejesus out of me, shaving machines (as my dad calls them) is something I have little knowledge on. So when he asked for one I had to go back to him and ask which one and what brand, he said any Gillette Profusion shaver would do just fine. I was able to grab THIS from amazon which has now been delivered (You’ve got to love amazon prime).

    So there you have it, daddy’s choice of Father’s Day gift ideas.

    What do you think of my daddy’s choice?

      I have no idea what to get my dad this year. If I ask him what he want’s he justs says ‘don’t get me anything’

        Awww bless this was the case for me in previous years but now he said what he wantedn

        Thanks Sabina

      These are all great ideas. No idea what I’m buying my dad or hubby. I know hubby would love the shaving machine and charcoal suit x

      • June 1, 2016 / 8:23 am

        Thanks, I opted for asking him instead of guessing

    4. May 31, 2016 / 7:16 am

      Some lovely ideas there, I can think of one person in particular who would love the shaving machine πŸ™‚

      Great ideas! My dad is retired now, so it’s all golf, bowling, and skiing gear!

      • May 31, 2016 / 6:35 am

        Awww bless, I think my dad would still love golf experience day as a present

    6. May 30, 2016 / 8:18 pm

      Love this Father’s Day gift guide!! My husband is a preacher so I know what it is like to always consider a Bible for a present and in my opinion it’s an everlasting present!

      • May 31, 2016 / 6:35 am

        Indeed it is bad thanks

    7. May 30, 2016 / 4:34 pm

      Lovely choices! I would go for the Black shoes for my father.

    8. May 30, 2016 / 1:23 pm

      Charcoal grey suits are the best! I might go for an experience present for my dad x

      • May 30, 2016 / 3:24 pm

        I thought experience day would be good but he said grey suit instead

    9. May 30, 2016 / 12:02 pm

      See I would go for experience days over gifts like this every time – just goes to show that sometimes they choose practical items as gifts

      • May 30, 2016 / 3:23 pm

        I did go for experience days but then I thought let me just ask him as well

    10. May 29, 2016 / 10:58 pm

      Good idea to ask your dad to pick the choices! I really must get on with organising things for Father’s Day! I agree with your dad – I think grey suits are nice for men, & I prefer them to black suits. (Lucy/R is for Hoppit)

      • May 30, 2016 / 6:24 am

        I too prefer them to black suits and thanks Lucy

    11. May 29, 2016 / 5:58 pm

      I think charcoal suits are so dapper too, I did not know that your father was a priest, he would be pleased with your giftlist.

      • May 30, 2016 / 6:23 am

        Yes he is and thanks Ana

      The Clinique gift set would be a good idea for my other half from the little ones! not sure I could get him in a suit πŸ™‚

      • May 30, 2016 / 6:21 am

        Hahahaha maybe one day you can lol

    13. May 29, 2016 / 1:00 pm

      My dad loves to take care of his skin so I think that he would love the Clinique mens gift set xxx

      • May 30, 2016 / 6:21 am

        Awww that’s sweet and I am sure he would appreciate it if you got him that

    14. May 29, 2016 / 12:05 pm

    15. May 29, 2016 / 10:35 am

      What great picks, suit and shoes would be great gift ideas for anyone whose dad has to wear a suit for work

      • May 30, 2016 / 6:20 am

        True but my dad doesn’t need it for work more for church and important functions

    16. May 29, 2016 / 10:19 am

      My husband would love a new suit! Great picks πŸ™‚

      These are great ideas! I love the idea of the bible and the shaving machine. They are things he will use every single day and remember your love!

      • May 29, 2016 / 9:18 am

        Thank you Alison

    18. May 29, 2016 / 3:31 am

      I love the idea of an experience day but I also think it’s nice to give him the choice because men don’t tend to speak up about that stuff!

      • May 29, 2016 / 9:17 am

        Exactly my thinking, thanks Courtney
