Fathers Day Gift Guide

Fathers day is approaching fast, it was always very easy for me growing up. Each year we would buy my father the same gift. We weren't very close, so I always brought him a T-shirt that he would wear, sadly it required no thought. This year is Sam's very first fathers day, in my opinion Sam is one of the hardest people to buy a gift for, no matter what you pick he is always grateful, but it is so hard finding the 'perfect' gift. Now that I am a mummy, I want to get Sam the perfect gift from Emily, something that he will love and can treasure forever. Something personal that would mean everything to Sam, a keepsake. 



Kali Kraft
I met Kristin at the Bedfordshire baby show. She creates beautiful jewellery, and she also makes personalised coasters. Kali Kraft take a photograph of your choice and put them onto a coaster. They then send a sample to you for approval before payment is made. They stock two types of coasters. The 'ceramic coaster' (right), and the 'stone affect coaster' (Left). I love this gift, I think it is the perfect keepsake, but it is also practical and something Sam will use from day to day. I can't wait to give it to him on Fathers Day! It is his absolute favourite picture of him and Emily, so I know he will love it. 


Lavish Lockets
I previously wrote a post on my personalised locket. I absolutely loved this gift, it is one of my favourites. I was looking at the range of things they offer and I found some gorgeous cufflinks. They can be personalised with little charms, because of the size it is recommended that you have just two charms per cufflink. I picked a little girl charm, with Emily's birthstone, the letter E, a little circle birthstone, and a heart containing the word Daddy. It is a gift that Sam will use everyday when he is at work. Because he works in a office he has to wear shirts everyday. This means the cufflinks come in really useful for him. He will be reminded of Emily every time he wears them, although I am sure he doesn't need a reminder. The cufflinks are priced at £22.99 and then each individual charm costs a little extra. 



Snapfish
Snapfish provide a photo printing service, they can create gifts using your photographs. I previously worked with Snapfish (you can see the post here). They provide perfect personlised gifts for your partner. Since Emily has been born, we have taken hundreds and hundreds of photographs which I haven't yet got around to printing. I knew Sam would appreciate a photo gift for Fathers day. I picked the travel mug for Sam, you can personalise it with up to 15 pictures, and add a title if you wish. I thought It was the perfect gift for Sam to use on the way to and home from work. The lovely people at Snapfish have kindly given my readers a coupon code for 50% off fathers day bestsellers, this is all photo books, mugs, cards, 6x4" acrylic prints, acrylic blocks, photo panels, jigsaw puzzles, mousemats, keyrings and large prints. Just simple enter the code 'SFUK50FD' at the check out. The coupon code is valid until June 15th, this is also the last order date for fathers day gifts.



Baker days
Bakers day offer a unique service. They sell 5" letter box cakes (you can find our full review here). What is better than receiving cake through the post. Baker days have a massive range of cakes for various different occasions, birthdays graduation, new baby, christenings or even just a thank you cake. They have a big Father's day range. I love the fact that the cake can fit through your letter box meaning you don't need to worry if the recipient is in or not. We purchased a cake for Sam and we were not disappointed. It is a extremely tasty sponge cake, they have plain sponge and also a chocolate sponge. Baker days letterbox cake are £14.99 with free postage. 


Love2Read
Love2Read provides you with the opportunity to create your own book online, you can add pictures and text to go along with the pictures. There is even space on the front page to add a personalised message (you can see my full review here). The website is very easy to navigate and use. It took a couple of minutes to create the book, the purpose of love2read is to help children develop a love for reading, the text in the book is also really simple which helps with word association. It is lovely to see Sam and Emily bonding while reading this book together. Emily loves to see the pictures of her and her daddy, and it provides the perfect time for them to bond. Each book is £14.99.


Bella & Bow
Bella and Bow offer a range of handmade, personalised print jewellery (you can view the full review here). They use hand and foodprints. They can use paw prints too! There is a range to choose from, including necklaces, charms, keyrings and even cufflinks. The keyring is silver plated. We picked a keyring with Emily's hand a foot print on, and a personalised little message. It is packaged in a gorgeous white box with a red ribbon. There is no words to explain how unique each item is and how breathtakingly beautiful they are. It brought a tear to my eye. The keyring is one of the most popular gifts that Bella and Bow sell. It is priced at £40.00.
