Father’s Day Celebrations – 2018 Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is a special day dedicated to all those incredible dads doing there very best. Like Mother’s Day it is a day dedicated to showing extra love to the dads in our lives. Father’s Day celebrations started back in the Middle Ages mostly celebrated by Catholic families during the month of March. In the twentieth century it was adopted by countries like the USA who in turn changed the date. The new current Father’s Day celebrations falls on the third Sunday in June.

Father's Day celebrations

Knowing we have only 4 weeks left before Father’s Day 2018, I thought I share some gift ideas. Whilst Father’s Day celebrations are not all about gifts, it is still nice to gift our loved ones. Here some of the items I am moving and am sure my father would love them too.

Father’s Day Celebrations – 2018 Gift Ideas

Looking back to all the Father’s Day gift ideas we’ve shared on the blog, couple things are always on the list. Perfume or a men’s watch seems to be a frequent features on the gift guides which should comes no surprise to anyone. The father’s in my life do love their perfumes and watches and who can blame them. Here some items I think would be perfect for the upcoming Father’s Day celebrations.

Men’s Travel Kit – since I have been treating my parents to trips abroad, it has became apparent that he needs a travel kit. Packing items that he can use whilst traveling seems to allude daddy dearest so this would be awesome.

Continuing on with travel needs I thought a nice hanging wall calendar from *showcase creative would be good. I thought it would be cool for him to have a visual countdown to the next adventure time abroad. Whilst a phone can be just as good, there is something more satisfying about physical items

Car Washing kit – daddy dearest is a neat freak and he lives things clean a certain way. This also extends to the family car which he takes great pride in ensuring its visually appealing. A nice car washing tool kit would be the bees knees to father dearest and our family car.

when it comes to clothing, father dearest is hard to shop for but also easy at the same time. Easy in that he often wants the same things; more socks and more T-shirts. Hard because he needs other items but its hard to convince him he needs them unless mum does it.

And there you have it, items that I think most father’s would love to receive for the upcoming Father’s Day celebrations.

    Fantastic ideas! I’ll be buying a fathers day gift for my dad this year and for my boyfriend so I find your ideas useful! I really like the idea of a travel kit as we’re going on holiday soon xxx

    I have to say that I love that socks have increased in popularity. My husband has a pretty awesome collection, but new ones would be a great option for Father’s Day!

    These are great gift ideas! I think its amazing that we have Mother and Father day celebration and that we can give gifts for extra appreciation 🙂

    This is so handy! I’m useless with gifts and as I got older I just started asking what he wanted – but he never comes up with anything for himself either!

    Mens travel kit would be an ideal Father’s day gift for my husband…unfortunately he hates car washing…lol! Thanks for sharing!

    Some great ideas! We don’t really do much for Father’s Day, and I’ll be out of town this year but will have to start getting some gifts pretty soon!

    Love these ideas, my dad is really hard to buy for. But I think I’m going to get him an experience this year, he literally has everything else!

    Would you believe I’ve never bought a Father’s Day gift? I never had a father growing up, and my husband isn’t that fussed with things. Maybe this year I’ll treat him as a surprise.

    I haven’t figure out what to get for my husband but this is a great list. I like that all of the ones on your list are practical. THe car was kit would be great for my husband’s sports car.

  12. May 25, 2018 / 5:43 am

    These all sound like great ways to celebrate Father’s Day! I love these gift ideas!

    I think Dad’s would love all of these ideas. The car cleaning kit looks fab, I’d quite like that myself!

  14. May 24, 2018 / 8:41 pm

    Those are some great ideas. My husband got a grill for Father’s day that is so portable we can easily take it camping. Yes had the money and we bought each other early Mother’s and Father’s day gifts back in like April. He got a grill and I got a paddle board.

    Great ideas! My Husband has asked for the new roller coaster set from LEGO, it’s absolutely huge! haha.

  16. May 24, 2018 / 7:29 pm

    My Dad’s not around any more but I love helping my children choose something for their father.

  17. May 24, 2018 / 6:44 pm

    I never know what to get my husband for Father’s Day. I think that he would love that car cleaning kit and it’s so practical.

  18. May 24, 2018 / 6:35 pm

    I like the idea of a gift related to the car. What man doesn’t love to take care of his baby (in this case vehicle)?

  19. May 24, 2018 / 6:18 pm

    I always struggle with ideas of things to by for my Dad – I did buy him a signed book but then he was quite poorly so I gave it to him early – so now I need to think of something new.

  20. May 24, 2018 / 4:49 pm

    Dads are the hardest to shop for and my husband is one of the hardest dads. I love the idea of a car wash kit because he is a diy kind of guy and would use it.

  21. May 24, 2018 / 3:32 pm

    My husband needs clothing this year. He has a birthday coming up soon too so there’s that. He hates shopping and is in very rough shape for clothing.

  22. May 24, 2018 / 2:19 pm

    Genius! I think a travel kit is just what my hubby needs. He’s got quite the beard and so this would help him travel with all of his beard gear!

  23. May 24, 2018 / 1:57 pm

    This year is going way too fast! How could we even be passed Mother’s Day? I’m having a hard time with how fast it’s going. I do love all of the ideas here. And on Father’s Day I will make sure that we get something good for him.

  24. May 24, 2018 / 1:14 pm

    I like these ideas. I never know what to get my husband since he’s picky. I might get him a car washing kit. He’s forever cleaning his truck.

    Moving on to celebrating Father’s Day next. Always great gift ideas you have gathered. My husband wants a certain new power tool this year.

  26. May 24, 2018 / 12:10 pm

    Had totally forgotten about Father’s Day this year, so this is a really handy list of ideas.
