Top Fathers Day Gifts (as chosen by a 7 & 8 year old)

Usually hubbie gets something small for
Fathers Day, a token gift just so its celebrated and not gone by
unnoticed. I would love for us spoil him, he is a good dad, solid,
reliable and a hard worker. But usually money is tight so its more a
small gesture of the boys love. Not that hubbie would ever grumble.

So out of curiosity and
thanks to a Tesco Fathers Day campaign
I decided to ask the boys to tell me what they would buy their beloved daddy if
money wasn’t an issue. I was eager to see what they thought he might like
if they had an unlimited budget! I really like asking them questions like
this because their answers can be quite revealing (and entertaining!), you
never know quite what they might come out with!!!

They started quite small with
chocolate, we tend to always get hubbie a Tolberone so they were keeping on
theme there. Swiftly followed by beer – daddy isn’t a big drinker but
they still added it to their ultimate fathers day gift list. I think its
because their taid (grandad) is a real ale drinker and always partial to a
bottle so they thought their dad might like the same.

New Computer – My hubbie is a
BIG gamer, well he was until life with kids got a bit more complicated and free
leisure time became a thing of the past. But he does enjoy tinkering on
his computer, he has his own blog or surfs around on there, so this gift would
be ideal for him.

Then the boys creative ideas
snowballed and they aimed HIGH!

We had a car (Ferrari no
less) making its way on the gift list – I do think hubbie would enjoy a sports
car, he is a good driver and would probably like something a bit more
zippy!

Followed by a diamond theme
(diamond encrusted ring, a giant standalone diamond, diamond encrusted car and
even a diamond encrusted house!) – I just love all the sparkle! Not sure
what hubbie would make of it all, I think the boys are getting inspiration from Minecraft here where they regularly mine diamonds.

Jet pack to fly over high
mountains, given daddy won’t even go on most theme park rides I think this gift
might be a stretch too far for my darling hubbie!

Jet ski – not to enjoy on our
nearest stretch of water no but to go round the Antarctic…

Ginormous bed – well daddy
likes his sleep and relaxing in bed watching TV if given the opportunity so an
even bigger bed would suit him perfectly.

A Sweet Shop – I think this
is more for themselves but daddy does have a sweet tooth so could enjoy it
too! I just hope the dentist isn’t too far away from their new virtual
world with all the sweets they plan on eating…

If money was no object what would your children get
their dad?

  1. Ooh a good one, what would my children buy their dad!? Probably a super fast car, i'm not actually sure what we are going to get hubby for fathers day though, well thats within budget anyway 😉

  2. Ha, I rather suspect that my kids would choose some Batman toys or something that they want – although for my birthday they wanted to get me fly spray as apparently I 'really like killing flies'!

  3. What superb ideas for Father's Day! I'm sure if POD had the choice, a car would be up there and likely some other random things. Will have to ask her now 🙂
