With the UK Father's Day date fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about what Father's Day gifts you're going to pick out. Whether you're looking for gifts from your children for their daddy or even Father's Day ideas for your own dad; I've got plenty of fab ideas to treat dads with all different tastes.

When is Father's Day in the UK 2019?

The date of Father's Day 2019 in the UK is Sunday 16th June... that means it is just two weeks away! Read on to discover my top Father's Day gifts from sweet treats to child-free breaks.

"One of the greatest titles in the world is parent."

Hard working dads deserve a child-free break

If you're looking for a fun, unique Father's Day gift idea, then you need look no further than purchasing a Red Letter Days voucher*. We had the amazing opportunity to board the Bateaux Windsor lunch cruise and John loved it... he told me it's one of the best gifts he's ever recieved (and is insisting we buy the same voucher for his parents!)

Red Letter Days offer vouchers to suit every budget, and so many partners to choose from. This means no matter what your dad is into, from adrenaline fueled experience days to romantic nights away, you'll find it on their site. Find the full review of our Bateaux Windsor lunch cruise on the Thames* here.

"I don't like cricket, oh no, I love it!"

ICC Cricket World Cup official book and kid's handbook*

John is a massive fan of cricket. He used to play at county level, watches it as much as he can, and is trying to teach Squidgy to play too (with a mix of success!) The ICC Cricket World Cup official book and kid's handbook* are perfect Father's Day gifts for any sport loving dad like him! Especially as it allows dad to introduce the sport to his children (whether mum likes it or not!) They are also a great, budget friendly gift idea and can be ordered online online from Amazon.

"A warm cup of tea is just like a hug!"

Personalised Father's Day gifts for the win

If you have seen any of my previous gift guides you will know that I love a personalised gift. If you're looking for the perfect gift for dad this Father's Day then Norma & Dorothy* have you covered. I love the matching personalise mug and coaster I picked out for my dad. They can be personalised with your choice of drink (Rooibos being my dad's go-to!) and title (I went for Grandad so the gifts can be from my girls!) and they have plenty of other gift options available to suit all different dads!

"It is true that whiskey gets better with age. The older I get, the more I like it!"

A tipple for busy dads who like to relax with a small glass at the end of the week

From my grandad to my father in law to my husband there are a fair few men in my life that enjoy a small glass of whiskey at the end of a long, busy week. If you’re looking for a gift to suit a man like them then I highly recommend Tomatin Highland single malt Scotch whiskey*. There are a number of different award winning whiskeys in their core range. Each is matured for a different length of time and offers a different strength and taste to suit everyone! Even I enjoyed a sip or two to test their products out!

"Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad."

Choosing the right Father's Day cards is as important as the gifts

When it comes to picking out a Father's Day card, there is so much choice it can be hard to make a decision. With the range available from Love Layla* you are sure to find something you love whilst having a bit of a giggle as well. I managed to find suitable cards for John and both our dads all of which I know will put a smile on each of their faces. Each card also comes with a coupon inside which can be exchanged for things like a solo toilet break (don't all parents dream of this!) or a lie in. It's a lovely added bonus from the team, and I kind of want one of those coupons myself!

Love Layla also offer gifts like wine bottle stickers (I know my mother-in-law will appreciate his!) so you can personalise what would otherwise be quite a boring, generic gift.

"Looking good isn't self-importance; it's self-respect"

Pick out some gifts that are not only useful but good quality too!

Black Leopard hair and skin care range*

Maybe you're looking for Father's Day gifts for someone who loves to have a slick, sexy hairstyle. Or perhaps you're buying for a man who aims to maintain young, healthy looking skin. There are some great products available from Black Leopard to suit all different parts of a man's pampering routine. Black Leopard are an Australian family brand, making products designed by men for men and John loves them!

My favourite thing is the fact they use natural ingredients meaning they're not only safe to use but also not harmful to the environment. I think we were both a bit taken aback by the colour of the hair styling cream (bright purple!) but it actually works amazingly well. Plus all the products smell fabulous.

Good quality razors for the tech mad dad

Unless your dad is a man who loves to grow an epic beard (my uncle is one such guy... maybe a beard oil is an ideal gift for him?) then he will be using a razor. There are so many available these days, and Wilkinson Sword have a great range to suit different uses. The range includes the Hydro 5 Sense* and Hydro 5 Groomer*; both of which are perfect for a tech loving dad or partner!

The Hydro 5 Sense* has shock absorbing technology and adjusts to the pressure applied. I can't vouch for it myself, but John has been using it, and tried it with and without (as there is a switch to turn it off!) and loves not only how it feels to use but the great shave it offers. The Hydro 5 Groomer* is the ideal gift for a dad who likes to make sure his sideburns and shave are neat and tidy in between hair cuts. Plus, with its removable head you can adjust the precision end to the hair length you desire.

"You are what you eat, so eat something sweet!"

If you're going to treat your dad for Father's Day, sweet treats are a great gift idea!

Super hero sweets

Did you know Jelly Belly* are still around? I remember loving these and all the weird and wonderful flavours as a kid! If you’re looking for budget friendly Father's Day gifts then Jelly Belly’s super hero mixes and wine flavour jelly beans are definitely the gift for you! Although lets be honest, if your kids are anything like mine, it’s likely that their dad will be required to share give away his own gift in favour of his children wanting them!

Sweet treat Father’s Day gifts don’t have to be unhealthy

If you’re on the hunt for Father’s Day gifts that not only fit the sweet treat bill but also offer allergy friendly and healthy options then Creative Nature* are the place to shop. Whether you buy some of their snack bars perfect for dad’s lunch box or even an easy make ready mix to bake up some healthy, tasty goodness with your children there is plenty to choose from. The best part is that you don’t compromise on quality or taste just because they are free-from certain ingredients such as dairy and gluten; and they vegan friendly!

Whether you're looking for Father's Day gifts for your partner or your dad, I hope this gift guide helps. With my Father's Day ideas you are bound to find some way to show that special father figure in your (or your children's) life that you love them.

All that is left to say is... Happy Father's Day to my amazing husband John. Thank you for putting up with me and my camera and for being the best daddy in the world to our beautiful rainbows. To all the other daddy's out there, I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day and are able to enjoy special moments and time with your children.
