I don't know about you guys but I find buying gifts for my Dad quite hard. He has absolutely everything & men in general are just harder to buy for anyway. Soo, I have to get my brain into gear!
I'm not sure why but whenever I go to London with my family, my Dad always stops to read the blue plaques on the various houses. As well as this my Dad is a massssive hoarder of books. Put the two together... I found this little book on Amazon for (I think) around £9.
Most people would probably think that one gift is sufficient for fathers day, & yes it is. Buttt, I always spend more on my Mom for mothers day. I got a little bit guilty & thought I should the same for me old man! My Dad isn't a groomy type of man, but he is partial to a bit of L'Occitane. Whilst in Birmingham yesterday I couldn't resist a look in the L'Occitane store & found a soap collection for £4.50. The collection includes cinnamon orange, lavender, milk & verbena.
Whilst in L'Occitane I also noticed this little men's grooming set for £12, which I think is quite good. I didn't get this for father's day, but for part of my boyfriend's b'day presents. It contain an after shave balm, shower gel & 2 soaps. They all smell divine :)
When I purchased the L'Occitane products the woman gave me two samples; one of which was a hand balm & the other rich body cream. The question is: do I give these to my Dad, my boyfriend or keep them to myself? ;)
What have you guys bought your Dads for father's day?
