Fathers Day Gift Guide and Competition

If I am honest I have neglected my poor followers in terms of competitions lately so I thought this time I would spoil you with one lovely big hamper prize perfectly themed for Fathers Day.  It is coming around quickly now, June the 21st will be here before we know it, so its time to get your thinking hat on and source a thoughtful gift for your partner (from the kids) or for your own dad.  Winning this competition would make your job easier but just in case you don’t manage that the suggestions below might help with possible gift ideas if you’re feeling clueless and uninspired!  Regardless of your budget you will find something to suit here.

The only item not in the competition draw but I would recommend as a gift is the lovely Personalised Family Key Print I was sent from Getting Personal.  We are making a photo wall so its really helped add some more interest to that, I like using different types of frames and a mixture of photo's and items like this which are more unique.  Family is very important to us, so giving a gift to hubbie with the names of our children on is very special.  I think its brilliant quality for £34.99 as its a big frame and looks great!  I like how the background looks weathered like an old family heirloom!



The gorgeous wicker hamper prize includes a Lumie Bodyclock Active 250 (RRP £99.95), a Braun Waterflex Razor (RRP £159.99), a Super Man Lego Keylight (£6.99), a Stormtrooper Mood Light (£14.99), a selection of The Real Shaving Company products and some Liquiproof products.  In total a prize worth £300 that is sure to impress any man in your life.


The Lumie Bodyclock Active 250 is quite a sophisticated product; it gives you a lot of choice when it comes to waking up!  But even though it has lots of functions its easy enough to get the hang of as the user manual is simple to follow and you soon have the product set up to your individual requirements.


If you find mornings a struggle (I must admit I definitely do!), then this product will make your life considerably easier.  It’s a positive start to the day for a change, a gradual sunrise that helps you wake up in a pleasant way rather than an alarm clock going off loudly and your body refusing to acknowledge it!!!  My get up and go had got up and went until I used these clever Lumie products, they make getting out of bed in the morning more bearable as they have been proven to help with energy levels.  It’s no fun being permanently knackered so if your hubbie is like me this might just be the gift for him.  You might even find him more productive during the day; those little odd jobs around the house might actually get finished…

Braun kindly offered up one of their WaterFlex shavers so a dad out there could experience smooth skin with a gentle but close shave.  Braun shavers all have outstanding performance and make shaving a more enjoyable experience.  The WaterFlex shaver in particular make it possible to shave in the shower, bath or the usual wet shave in front of the mirror.  It’s more refreshing somehow shaving with lots of water, making it a more relaxing and comfortable part of your grooming routine.  Hubbie is always pressed for time, but combining his bath with his scheduled shave should free up time.  I am glad about that, as we are all usually queuing for the one bathroom!

We often think our own dad is a superhero, so why not give them a fun gift with this Super Man Lego Keylight.  These are very affordable and a great present from a child with a small budget.  The light is bright and useful if you have dropped something and need to find it!  So not only is it a novelty gift its quite practical too.  Although you might find this is quickly pinched by the children in the family, who always need torch light in dens!

Qwerkity have a great range of Father’s Day gift ideas for men, we were sent the Stormtrooper Mood Light for hubbie to review but this item was quickly commandeered by my eldest.  Qwerkity have so much choice its easy to find something any dad will love, whatever their interests and hobbies you will find a product to accommodate them on this site.  I quite like the personalised Man Cave Sign (£19.99), I think hubbie would appreciate that, with two boys constantly bickering I think he would love to slope off for some peace and quiet in his own space.


The Real Shaving Company sent three of their products for the giveaway and an extra one I squirreled away for hubbie to test.  It is a 3-step shaving program that gives you superior results.  They are pitched as high performance products with professional based formulations, so you’re giving the skin a quality gentle treatment (with those natural organic ingredients) but thankfully at an everyday price!  It’s so important to cleanse your skin to get rid of a build up of dirt and oil and stop your pores from becoming clogged up.  But my hubbie for one skips cleansing entirely but by having a set grooming routine in place with easily numbered products even he can follow the steps properly!!!

Liquiproof have some useful products for footwear and fabric protection, I am not saying give these as a standalone gift, but perhaps to accompany a new pair of shoes or shirt!  Certain materials do not cope well when they get wet, whether from a spill or bad weather so it pays to look after them by using this simple and affordable treatment to keep them looking their best.



Watching the video its quite impressive seeing how well Liquiproof copes with wine, water and paint, its just glides straight off the shoes once they have had the treatment!  Just remember to leave 24 hours for it to dry before you try anything ambitious…

  7. The Braun shaver would be the best gift ever for my son-in-law from the grandson because he wet shaves and always seems to be going off to work with bits of toilet tissue stuck to his face doing the mop-up job.Somehow nobody has taken any notice of his Christmas list up till now, socks and smellies being frontrunners.
