What are you getting for Dad this year?

What are you getting for Dad this year? 

Me: “What do you want for Father’s Day?” 

Him: “Oh, nothing…” 

Sound familiar? Yes, it's almost the day you get to celebrate just how amazing your husband/ dad truly is. The problem is that they are notoriously hard to buy for... 

I have to be honest, the idea of trawling around the shops on a Saturday afternoon with the kids in tow, trying desperately to find an appropriately lovely gift fills me with dread. The parking, the crowds, the weather, dealing with requests for constant snacks and the ‘can I have…’ questions…  Not only that, but many of us also have to find a present for our own dads who are equally non-specific about what they’d like to receive.

Don’t get me wrong, I want to make an effort, but what happens is that I get stressy and procrastinate, delaying the inevitable shopping trip until the very last minute. 

If you’re anything like me, you have a list of things for yourself that you would really love. So when Mother’s Day, your birthday or Christmas rolls around it’s simple: GET ME ANY ONE OF THESE THINGS AND I’LL BE DELIGHTED. 

Do you mentally run through the list for him? Beers? No. Socks? Too cliché. An experience? He never finds the time to use them.

So, for hands-on dads who have a loving relationship with their kids, something personalised is the perfect solution. No matter how old the kid, a homemade card is special…but let’s face it, trying to actually make a gift on your kitchen table is a step too far. 

Here’s where I solve your problems! I’ve put a LOT of thought into what makes a great personalised and unique gift, and I make them professionally with my very own hands here in my specialised workshop.

Here are a few of my bestsellers from last year that are available to purchase now. But don’t put it off any further as the last date that I can accept orders for guaranteed delivery is Thursday 6th June 2019!

Personalised Medal Display Board

Yes, he’s a winner and he’s got the medals to prove it.. somewhere in the back of a drawer. Let’s celebrate his successes with pride on this gorgeous solid oak engraved medal display board. It’s the gift that keeps on giving - he’ll feel good every time he looks at it on the wall (of course, the whole family is also happier when Dad is a little less grumpy)

Engraved Hammer

The perfect gift for that someone in your life who can fix anything around the home.  We have really nailed it with this beautiful unique personalised engraved hammer (excuse the pun).

The best bit? there will be no more excuses to get on with that DIY project you’ve been waiting for him to start!

Breakfast in Bed

No, I’m not offering to come round to your house on Father’s Day! But I can make this gorgeous egg & soldiers board that will make it so much more special.  The kids will love presenting it, and you have one less thing to wrap – winner all round!

I can engrave this upcycled oak board in your child’s handwriting too for that extra special touch. Available in a chopping board variety.

Fathers Day Breakfast

If you want even more inspiration, I have lots more other products including personalised photo frames, cheese boards, notice boards, and gift vouchers in my Father’s Day shop here.  

Once you have placed your order, I’ll send across a digital preview of your design within 2 working days. Only when you have approved the design will carving commence, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about. We aim to post out your order within 3 working days from design approval. I’ll be working around the clock in my workshop in the run up to the big day, just remember to place your order before Thursday 6th June 2019 for guaranteed delivery. 

Let’s make this one to remember!
