Father’s Day 2017 Gift Ideas 

Father’s Day 2017 will soon be upon us and if you’re anything like me you’re still searching for the prefect present. Last year I asked my dad what he wanted for Father’s Day and the list wasn’t surprising at all. This year I have gone back to the usual, scouring my brains for what I could gift my father. He is a simple man but still very difficult to shop for and he rarely asks for things. If you’re in the same situation as me and need some ideas, I have a couple that I am exploring.

Father’s Day 2017 Gift Ideas

Perfume, my father loves his old spice perfume and has done for many years. My mum always swears by it and always picks him a couple for all occasions. He stocks them so that he never runs out, it’s actually quite funny you would think it was going out of Fashion. So my idea for you is to find something your father (or partner) loves and buy in bulk.

Socks, I don’t know if it’s just my family but my father buys socks every month. Somehow they go walkabouts between the washing basket and the washing machine. It boogers me how that happens but definitely a must have on every list for every occasion.

Wrist Watch

It is no secret that I would like to buy my father and myself a wooden watch. In the last few years wood watches have been the must have item, Tense Wooden Watches have the ones we want. I have checked out the website and in awe of the gorgeous wrist watches and I know my father would definitely love to have one. I am also exploring other companies that are specializing in wooden watches and hope to purchase one soon.

Shaving set 

Every single list my father writes for the items he needs always has a shaving set. He goes through them like toilet paper and no one understands how but he does. We’ve tried sets from Braun, Gillette and now looking at other brands. He likes a clean shave and never lets his beard grow an inch same with his head. Not sure when it happened but he prefers being bold to having a head of hair so shavers are a must.

There are so many other gift ideas one can consider but for me this Father’s Day 2017, these are the items I am considering. What’s on your list?

    I think wooden watches are great, love these watches here. My dad usually has chocs but I should get him something different this year

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:16 pm

      I love wooden watches and really home to get one for him and for me too and my brother

  10. May 31, 2017 / 3:27 pm

    I find it difficult to shop for the dads in my life, lol. My grand dad has expensive taste so I guess that one’s always going to be tough! Haha. I think that shaving set is nice though and I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:15 pm

      I bet he will appreciate it regardless of what it is.

  11. May 31, 2017 / 1:07 pm

    I think a watch is always a really nice idea, I like getting my dad experience things that we can do together x

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:15 pm

      Yes I too love experience gifts but not yet found one we can do together soon

      You’re welcome and I am sure whatever you get him he will love it

  15. May 31, 2017 / 6:16 am

    I couldn’t help but smile when you mentioned Old Spice. It’s one my father has worn for years, and every time I catch a whiff, it makes me think of him x

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:13 pm

      Same here I definitely think of when I smell it out in public

      I hope you manage to get him something, I am hoping to get him a wrist watch too

  18. May 30, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    I think that a wrist watch is a great idea for a fathers day gift as is socks x

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:12 pm

    My dad is happy with a great meal I guess I’m lucky that it is easy to make him happy. I would love to buy him and after shave set though.

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:12 pm

    My dad is so hard to buy for. I usually buy him beer. My partner is the same although he does love his socks.

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:10 pm

      Awww bless I love that beer for one, socks for the other

  25. May 30, 2017 / 2:12 pm

    My dad is an extremely HARD PERSON TO GET GIFTS FOR….. So um, I typically just – GIVE HIM A CALL lol!

    • May 31, 2017 / 6:09 pm

      Hahaha I love that, that works too

    These are great ideas. I have been struggling with what to get my hubby this year.

    • May 30, 2017 / 2:05 pm

      Thanks and I hope my little list will be helpful as you make your decision

  27. May 30, 2017 / 1:48 pm

    These are great ideas. I’m not sure what I’m going to get my dad. Normally he likes these certain chocolates, so I’ll probably do those and something else.

    • May 30, 2017 / 2:04 pm

      Thank you, yeah I think if he has some particular favourite ones then go ahead and grab those.
