Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Guide

Garden Tools – things like sheers, plant pots, or expanding hoses always go down well.

‘Posh’ Shirts – men are notoriously bad at choosing their own clothes, so simplying buying stuff for them is the best way to give them push in the right direction. My favourite are from FatFace (around £40) and NEXT (around £25)

Navy Short Sleeve Printed Dot Oxford Shirt

Sweet Treats – at under a tenner, this company has tonnes of different sweets to choose from all in a cute bottle container.

Marmite Popcorn – if he falls into the ‘love’ side of Marmite, get him something a bit more special like this popcorn, chocolate bar, or even a personalised maritime jar.

Joe & Seph’s Marmite® Popcorn

Fudge –

The Toffee Shop Fudge 454g

Drink – if you find out what his favourite drink is, then chances are they’ll be a set to go with it, but there are generic gifts, such as this 5 can beer set at a very reasonable £20. And if alcohol isn’t their thing, try this ginger beer, or even make your own for an equally delicious beverage.

Beer Hawk Top Dad Beer Box

BBQ – on the slightly more expensive end, BBQ’s are a great present if you know it’s something he’s been yearning over for a while now. With not many mouths to feed, these smaller ones are perfect and only £24.99, or you can go all out with an absolute beast of  a BBQ, like this.

Mug – easy and simple, this old classic is always a reliable option for when you’re really running last minute. In the weeks leading up to Father’s Day, pretty much all supermarkets, shops and even card factories will have enough mugs to last a life time.

LAST MINUTE MOTHERS DAY GIFT GUIDE // Life

With Mothers Day being just 3 short sleeps away, I thought I could write a last minute post on gifts for those who haven’t exactly thought too far in advance.

Afternoon tea 

If you know there’s a restaurant you know your mum has wanted to check out for a while, now is the perfect time to book her that meal out. Afternoon tea is an English classic, and you could book it just for her and a friend or for the whole family.

Check out:

Biddys tea room

Maids Head Hotel

The Assembly House


Bake!

Everyone loves an edible gift, and by baking something you save money, can do it all the day before, and your mum knows you’ve put real time and effort into it. It’s also a great idea to bake something together with your siblings, and can then wrap it up in a nice box with ribbons if your feeling fancy.

Try these recipes:

Carrot cake 

Shortbread hearts

Coconut cake (vegan)

Mini pavlovas


CathKidston Mug

Cath Kidston just opitimises the classic English Mother, and you really can’t go wrong with one of their mugs – they have loads of different patterns and are really affordable.


NEXT Homeware

Their next day delivery is perfect for last minute buying, and their homeware section has so many trinklets your bound to find something your mum (and you) will love.

Check out:

Floral canvas

‘Family’ sculpture

Knitted heart cushion

 

 Bodyshop Gift Set

You can’t really go wrong with a body shop set, but try and pick one you knows is specific to her – maybe pick the flower you know she loves? Or the if she’s mentioned running out of a certain product recently?

Check out:

Strawberry heart set

Beauty ‘classics’ selection box

British rose

 

 (Pretty much anything from) Lakeland

If you know she’s a great cook (or just loves giving it a go, even if she does burn every Sunday roast), then your bound to find something in Lakeland. And if cooking isn’t her forte, they stock tonnes of delicious gifts as well.

Check out:

Mary Berry oven gloves

Sea salt caramel truffles

Tablet stand

Strawberry liquorice

 

 Beauty/Spa voucher

Everyone loves to be pampered once in a while, so check out your local spa or beauty salon and see what treatments you think she’s like best. Jarrold also do vouchers, so you can pick the amount you spend and then leave it up to her to decide on what she wants.

 

 A Bouquet

There’s not many people who don’t like flowers, so why not order a big bouquet to bring with those little shortbread’s or cupcakes you made up to her with a cup of tea as she awakes to brighten her day. If you don’t have a florist nearby, most supermarkets sell bouquets and you can order online.


Wishing everyone out there a lovely lovely Mother’s Day xoxo
