Gifts Ideas for Dads – Father’s Day is fast approaching on Sunday, June 20th, this is a day to honour fathers and father figures, such as grandfathers and fathers-in-law.
To show our appreciation there is nothing more satisfying than popping a card and maybe a gift in the post to show how much we care.
If you are looking for inspiration the Women Talking team has been checking out a few alternative gift ideas.
For family fun, we have found the Taskmaster Board Game £19.99 from Smyths – Based on the BAFTA-winning Channel 4 TV show hosted by the mountainous Greg Davies and his assistant Little Alex Horne, Taskmaster the Board Game brings the very essence of this popular show to the whole family. With a series of ludicrous tasks find out who will be crowned Taskmaster Champion.
For Dads who love the outdoors, the Little Bee Home ideal for urban gardening and planting makes a great gift for your favourite gardener. A bee home is simply an artificial nesting structure that mason bees, and other solitary bees, can use to lay their eggs. Ideally, a bee house provides a safe space away from predators, weather, and chemicals–all of which can interfere with a successful reproductive cycle, adding to the biodiversity of your garden.
Introduce the whole family to the most atmospheric sculpture exhibition in Britain. Set in ten acres of arboretum and wildlife inhabited water gardens with hundreds of sculptures available for sale from over 300 internationally renewed artists the Sculpture Exhibition in Churt is a must. Open every day of the year. (Booking is necessary)
For the personal touch – The Original Stormtrooper Decanter £24.99 from Thumbsup.com In 1976 prop maker Andrew Ainsworth of Shepperton Design Studios created the original Stormtrooper helmets and armour for the first movie. This decanter is based on the original moulds Andrew produced, as close as it is possible to get to the original film props with a modern twist is holds spirits.
This high-quality decanter is ideal to serve your favourite beverage and the perfect gift for any Stormtrooper enthusiasts.
Timers are very useful when it comes to boiling the perfect egg but none of them are as fascinating as this Magnetic Hourglass from Kikkerland. Counting down from 60 seconds, this classic hourglass-shaped timer is filled with iron filings instead of sand and features a hidden magnet in the wooden base – as the filings trickle down into the bottom half, they attract to each other thanks to the magnet, creating awesome stalagmite formations.
Made from glass with a beechwood base, this sleek and eye-catching timer looks great wherever you stand it, and is so absorbing to watch, you may forget what you were waiting for!
For theNostalgicdads, Playmobil has launched two of the most iconic cars ever made!The VW Camper Van, affectionately known as the “Bulli”, has been a reliable companion for the most diverse challenges in daily life for 70 years – and has earned a special place in its owners’ hearts for generations. The cult vehicle with the carefree “California feeling” is a loyal companion for all kinds of new adventures and still makes the dream of freedom and independence come true for many fans to this day. Accordingly, the PLAYMOBIL-Volkswagen T1 Camper Van comes fully equipped with a seating area, travel kitchen, sleeping area and plenty of storage space.
The second Volkswagen addition to the PLAYMOBIL fleet is also a legend in its own right. The VW Beetle is a true classic and, with over 21 million units produced, was the world’s best-selling car for a long time before it was surpassed by the VW Golf. It shone on the big screen as the film star “Herbie” and it is known, loved and still in use as a family car all over the world.
