Father’s Day is fast approaching and I have two rather awkward men in my life to shop for. Before the end of the summer I also have another 4 birthdays in the family so I like to get organised early otherwise I’ll have a lot of frantic shopping to do.


My Dad & Matt are quite similar actually, they are both a bit quirky and have an annoying habit of buying themselves things in the run up to occasions. This year I’m trying to outsmart them both by picking some gifts they I don’t think they’ll have even heard of or even thought to buy. They are both fans of music, film and gadgets with Matt being just a little bit in love with his car.

All of them are available online so you can order in just a few clicks and be done with the whole affair. If these aren’t up your Dad’s street then don’t worry, there are loads more options available from a range of retailers via the Tesco Direct site.

One of the things Men always seem to get gifted for special occasions is toiletries. Generally speaking they end up with a gift set that sits unloved in a cupboard and is only turned to in times of need. I say no more! If you’re going to buy the man in your life toiletries this Father’s Day make it something he won’t be able to let languish.

My go-to pamper treat for the special people in my life is a Lush gift set. They do fabulous bundles for special occasions like Fathers Day such as the Wild or Dirty gift set.
