Sometimes gift shopping can be a real nightmare. Shopping centres can be hectic places and if you cannot find what you are looking for, your stress levels will be on the rise. If you are fed up of buying the same old generic gifts for dad when it comes to christmas, birthdays and fathers or are struggling to think of the perfect present, why not consider buying him a personalised gift?
They say ‘it’s the thought that counts’ and that is certainly true of personalised gifts. Having a gift personalised for your dad, will show him that you have put thought and care into your choice. Whereas some gifts you may get him are easily forgotten about a few weeks after father’s day, keepsake gifts that have been personalised are more often than not treasured forever.
There is nothing worse than feeling like you have bought your dad the best gift ever; only to find that your sibling has bought them exactly the same thing (last year on mother’s day my mum received 3 bottles of chardonnay, 2 boxes of chocolates and 3 bunches of flowers). This can be easily avoided by choosing personalised gifts instead. By personalising a gift with your dad’s name or having a special message written on it, you can ensure the gift is truly unique and something he will treasure for very long time.
This is the ideal gift for dads that work in offices or are retired. If your dad is now a granddad this is a great gift to showcase a picture of himself and grandchild, a perfect way to casually show them off to his friends and co-workers. Not just granddads though, stick a picture of dad and all his children on the cup and watch it become his favourite possession.
This stunning satin-gloss finish glass can be printed with a favourite photo around the entire edge. The eye-catching cup looks great on the kitchen side or an office desk – it looks so good it’s the perfect gift. This classic gift idea always goes down well, and is much more appreciated than the standard dad mug recieved on father’s day.

BBQ King Apron
My dad always says – “no man is ready to father a child until he has first mastered the grill” 🙂 and for that reason your dad has truly earned the Personalised BBQ King Apron. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting hotter, and your dad is adamant that all your family will be eating for dinner for the next three months, is grilled burgers and sausages.
Rather than trampling all over his ‘brilliant’ idea, earn some serious brownie points by treating your old man to a Personalised BBQ King Apron and watch how you have made his summer. It’s a fantastic gift for all the outdoorsy dads this father’s day, even if you can’t stand his burnt sausages, let him know he’s the only man in your life that will ever be “king of the grill”.
