Dear Internets,

Father’s day has always been a challenging one when it comes to gifts but this year spells double trouble with it being the first one for hubs. Add to that the fact that kidlet is sick and the standard response to the question “what would you like for father’s day?

Hubby: Hugs and kisses (awwww but not helpful)
Dad: I have everything I need…don’t waste your money unless it’s on a new car for me

All that means on my end is a little last minute shopping on my end. In case you are in the same boat, here are some of the gifts the men in my life are getting this year and some they’ve received in the past, just in time for late night shopping.


Kids bicycle seat: for the active dad who loves taking the kids along for the ride.
Puma work out grip bag: for the dad who wants to stay in shape.
Skagen Activ watch: for the man who hates jewellery but needs to be on time. Skagen is the perfect slimline non-bulky option
Tickets to Cricket/Soccer: for the sports fan dad…at least you’ll get some peace while they cheer on their team.
Peter Alexander robe: for the dad who gets up in the middle of the night to tend to the kids (however rarely it occurs)
Fitbit Flex wireless activity tracker: for the tech dad who likes to stay on top of things
Phillips Hairclippers: for the man who keeps asking you to cut his hair.
Johnnie Walker black: for the dad who likes to wind down on a friday night.

Hopefully these suggestions will help you with your last minute shopping. If you want to win some speakers for him, check out our easy giveaway here.

  1. Great gift ideas! 🙂

    I ordered the perfect gift for father’s day, but a little late, so I ordered a backup gift just in case the first didn’t arrive. Found out that neither are going to arrive in time, so I’m really upset! Hubby says it doesn’t matter, but I so wanted him to have a perfect first father’s day! Online shopping can be a pain sometimes!

    1. Oh dear, Sometimes its the little things like a day spent together, cuddles and breakfast in bed or a sleep in that make a good fathers day. I didn;t risk it this year and shopped old school. Think of it this way, he gets 2 father’s days!
