Gifts For Father's Day 2020


So, I'm sure we all know that Father's Day is coming up later this month, and I get that everything might be a little messed up at the moment with lockdown, but some things need to keep going, to help us have some normality in our lives. 

Father's Day is a day that is best spent with your daddy-dearest, but for some, at the moment, that isn't an option, so getting them a gift that is great for them, is a great way to tell him that you're thinking of him. So, here is my 2020 gift guide for Father's Day...


Who doesn't love a cakes gift set, and this Coffee & Cake Hamper from  HOPE & JOY at Meg Rivers Bakers of Happiness, is a beautiful gift for him. This beautifully gift-wrapped hamper contains a classic coffee and walnut cake, 2 indulgent brownie traybakes, a pack of hand-roasted freshly ground coffee from artisan roasters, Monsoon Estates, a super cute chic red and white striped mug from British kitchenware brand, Cornishware and  special greetings card of your choice.


You can't celebrate a day without cakes, and these gorgeously moreish OGGS Cakes are perfect for those who want the treat and yet still wants an entirely ethical, guilt-free cake. Every element is vegan friendly, with the sponge itself made using OGGS patented Aquafaba, an all-plant liquid egg alternative. And coming in some gorgeous flavours, Chocolate Fudge, Lemon Drizzle, and my personal favourite, Victoria Sponge. These cake are so moist, delicious and flavourful, that you don't want to just eat one.


If you want to show dad just how much you ‘loaf’ him this Father’s Day, this  Father’s Day Get Baking Kit from Roberts Bakery Direct is a super cute way to make him something that he'll love. All ready to be prepped, all you need is oil and water to make these delicious bakes. You can choose between a large football themed boule loaf, bread rolls or 'boozy' pizza bases is you've got a little beer to hand. I'll be showing these being made on my Stories, so if you want to see how easy it is, follow me on Instagram.


For the dad who loves a treat, Mummy Meagz Rocky Road bars come in a variety of flavours that he'll be sure to love. From a sumptuous cinder toffee, mint and orange. The bars contain no nuts or fruit, and are suitable for vegans and those following gluten-free diets, meaning almost every dad can enjoy something sweet this Father’s Day. As well as being free from animal products, all Mummy Meagz Rocky Road bars are free of Genetically Modified ingredients (GMOs) and palm oil – because Mummy Meagz believes food only tastes good if it does good.


A quirky gift is these Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies from Smith & Sinclair. Available in a range of different flavours, these gummies contain premium spirits with an ABV of 5%. This box of 'Let's Celebrate' gummies contains, 2 x Elderflower Spritz garnished with Thyme Sugar, 2 x Paloma garnished with Grapefruit Sugar, 2 x Whiskey Sour garnished with Lemon Sugar, 2 x Mandarin Spritz garnished with Orange Sugar and 2 x Passionfruit Mojito garnished with Passionfruit Sugar.


I know my husband loves a glass of Prosecco on an evening and so I picked out this bottle of Mont’albano Prosecco Frizzante from Vintage Roots. This refreshing bottle of Prosecco comes from Veneto in north east Italy and is bursting with lemony vibes, and it's organic too, which is always a plus. Ideal for a summer day sitting in the sun, or mixed with gin and red vermouth to make my absolute favourite cocktail, Negroni.


If you need somewhere to store your spirits, this Poison Skull Whiskey Decanter from Red Candy brings deadly designer style. This eye-catching liquor decanter from Balvi features a three-dimensional hollow glass skull suspended in the centre of the bottle; instantly transforming this glass vessel into a stunning talking point in your home.


And if you've got the decanter, you need some stylish glasses to serve in. This set of 2 Diamond Spirit Glasses are a great gift for him. These lustre-finished glasses are incredibly eye catching, and depending on the angle you look at, and the colour of the spirit inside, can shine bright like the colours of thr rainbow, just like a jewel. The Diamond shaped glasses come in a pack of two and have a capacity of 450ml, meaning you can fit plenty of plonk in there.


If you want to get your dad something to use after lockdown, but can't decide what he'd like, the Especially for Him Gift Box from Red Letter Days could be an ideal gift. With the choice of thousands of UK-based experiences in one voucher, he could choose to drive a supercar, go on a boat ride, or have a delightful meal, it would be totally up to him. Any gifts from Red Letter Days is currently extended to be valid for 24 months, due to the current situation, and some of the options he can choose can be for either just him,or for 2 people.


My husband loves designer gifts and, as underwear is always one of the most gifted items, I picked out some gorgeous designed bits from Mainline Menswear for him. One of his favourite brands is Tommy Hilfiger, so I opted to choose a pair of Navy Vintage Socks, a 2 pack of black Iconic Socks, and a 3 Pack of navy Trunks. The socks all have the signature branding and logo, and the cotton stretch boxers come in peacoat navy with an elasticated waistband which features the signature Tommy Hilfiger branding in white with twin stripes in red and white.


This Personalised Wooden Phone Stand from Personalised Gifts Market would make a cute gift for the phone obsessed father. This MDF mobile phone display stand is suitable for use with all smartphones and comes with a plastic leg that slots onto the main wooden board that props up the phone and leaves a gap so that the phone changer can be plugged in whilst the phone is on the stand.


And if you are as obsessed with your phone as my husband, then a Mophie Powerstation Mini might be just the thing he'll love. Get up to an additional 18 hours of use out of your device thanks to the 5,000mAh powerstation mini battery, and what's more, you can charge multiple devices at once by plugging one device into the USB-C port and another into the USB-A port. This universal battery gives everyday portable power.


Then he might also need a good quality case, to protect his favourite electrical. The Gear4 Crystal Palace Clear Protective Case provides ultimate impact protection. Crystal Palace is drop resistant up to 13ft/4m thanks to the D3O® approved material. The backplate is made of polycarbonate (PC), the same material that’s used in bulletproof glass, so it will keep your device safe and sound.


My husband has had many a product from Bluebeards Revenge and this Beard Grooming Kit is one he's sure to love. This kit will help to untangle knots and transform his beard into a masculine masterpiece. The kit consists of a pocket-friendly travel beard brush that allows for maintenance on the move and a sweet smelling, manly beard oil that promises to leave facial fuzz smelling and looking amazing.


The beard is totally in at the moment, so a great gift would be the gift of care. Trendhim have a whole range of male grooming gifts and the Proraso Azur Lime range is a great scented gift. The 200ml bottle of beard wash is richly scented, and the matching beard balm soothes and smooths after a trim and clean. You can also get warm facial oil treatment to bring back health and lustre.


I love this Yardley London Gentleman Urbane Eau de Parfum gift set and think it would make a lovely gift for Father's Day. Yardley Gentleman Urbane is a modern, sophisticated fragrance for him. A flamboyant, dynamic fragrance with a blend of bergamot and lavender on top, followed by masculine notes of thyme and tarragon, settling into a rich dry down of sandalwood, patchouli and musk.


For the fun loving dad, the Great Game of Britain is a great gift to get him playing, and seeing the sights too. The Great Game of Britain is a nostalgic race around the historic railway networks of Britain. Be the first commuter to travel from London to each of your mystery destinations and back again. Watch out for station closures and hazards along the way.


Books are a great gift as you can pick one that suits what dad loves. Black Ops is a compelling anthology of spies, soldiers, mercenaries and assassins, Black Ops tells the secret history of 20th- and 21st-century warfare. This is a book that my husband, and eldest son, would love to read. The telling of of undercover warfare from around the world. Here you will meet the most hardened soldiers and operatives facing extraordinary dangers deep behind enemy lines.


The football lover will love The Little Book Of series, and this The Little Book of Liverpool is a favourite for my husband. Liverpool have a proud tradition and a very loyal support, and this book aims to capture the flavour of both. With more than 170 quotes, celebrates the club's continued success at home and abroad.


The quizzer amongst us can keep their brains ticking with Overworked and Underpuzzled: Calming Crosswords, containing more than 100 crossword puzzles certain to stretch the brainpower of every puzzle-lover. The crosswords have been designed to give your vocabulary and lateral thinking skills a good work-out, but not to be unachievable for the average crossword-puzzler.


For the fitness buff dad, I love this water bottle from Worry Less Deign which has the writing 'I might look like I'm Listening To You But In My Head I'm Running'. The funny slogan just makes this bottle extra cute, and it's a good 400ml size too so ideal for when he is running. And this double wall stainless steel thermal travel mug with a screw on/off lid and a built-in openable tab to allow drinking on the go.


And if he has a bike, getting something that makes for great security might be the answer. The Tile Sticker comes as a pack of 2 and is the easiest tracking solution of all. Small and waterproof with adhesive back and 3-yr battery life, the Sticker provides long term convenience for busy individuals and families. It's a cost-effective and effortless tracking solution, especially for multiple items, including being able to be stuck to a bike.


For the budding cook amongst the men, The Whatever Pan from Jean-Patrique is a perfect gift as, as the name infers, it can be used for cooking whatever you want. This cast aluminium griddle pan can be used over gas, induction, ceramic, electric or Aga hobs, and can then be placed in the oven, suitable for temperatures up to 250°C, so you can sear, sizzle and grill in just one pan. I love the deep griddle to give some good flavour filled lines, and the high edges of the pan means you lock in all that food.


And for the food dips connoisseurs, 2 Fingers have a great range of Chunky Tartare Sauces that are made in West London, in small-batches, made using free-range egg mayonnaise, and is packed with echalion shallots, cornichons and lillput capers. With 4 types to choose from, Original, Original Vegan, spicy Creole and fiery Wasabi, made with fresh wasabi grown in the UK.


For the man who takes care of himself, Hunter Evolve is a range of lifestyle supplements for men, designed to drive success. Manufactured in the UK using the completely natural ingredients, the Hunter Evolve range features three products, all of which perfectly complement each other to help the user achieve optimum results. The product range includes Hunter Test, a testosterone booster, Hunter Burn, a fat burner, and Hunter Focus, a nootropic which helps improve cognitive ability.
