Father’s & Caregivers Day Gift Guide 2021

12th May 2021

This year Father’s Day is 20th June 2021, one day before we’re getting our freedom back in the UK!

In the meantime, online shopping remains a safe and easy way to buy for the men in your life this year.

I’ve found some fun, sweet, practical and even quirky gifts that may appeal for your loved ones below!

Accessories

Scaramanga

Scaramanga offer a great range of leather accessories and bags, including satchels, journals and things for pets.

Everything they sell is handmade or restored by leather experts, ensuring great quality.

Their Canvas Travel Organiser is perfect for when you’re going away as a family and want to keep important documents safe.

The khaki canvas travel organiser can store travel documents for you and your family.

It holds multiple passports, money, documents and more securely in one place with this new, well-designed travel organiser.

Scaramanga also sell furniture and vintage interiors, so there’s plenty to enjoy for Father’s Day.

Cup of Daisies

Cup of Daisies is a socially responsible brand that sell a range of handmade twill silk scarves, which support charities.

Each scarf represents a specific charity, so whichever you buy will give 10% of the profit to that particular charity.

Charities include Noah’s Ark, ADRAUK and Save The Children.

The scarves are handmade of 100% twill silk and have a rolled hem.

They’re non-gender specific as they can make gorgeous headbands, scarves and cravats.

When ordered, they arrive in a lovely recyclable box, and I recently reviewed their range here.

Trendhim

Trendhim offer a huge range of gifts for men, including these Winston Tortoise Shell Vista Clear Lens Glasses.

This pair of clear lens glasses for men offers 100% UV protection and a fab, retro vibe.

The glasses come in two shades, black or these tortoiseshell frames.

There’s also some other clear frames to choose from on the main site.

I like how these clear lenses block harmful blue light to reduce digital eye strain, so may get a pair myself!

These glasses are delivered in a signature gift box and come with a drawstring pouch.

Personalised Gifts

Photo Gifts Now

Photo Gifts Now offer a great range of gifts to suit your loved ones’ unique taste, including mugs, coasters, clothes and gadget covers.

One of my favourite personalised gifts they have are Own Design Hoodies.

My son chose a grey personalised hoodie using his dad’s favourite photo of them.

It was easy to order, all I had to do was upload the photo and added it to basket!

The hoodies come in a range of sizes (S-2XL) and come in grey or black.

You can personalise them with design, text, quote and images to make it just for them.

The hoodies seem to be of high quality, with a drawstring hood and front pocket across the tummy.

As well as clothing, Photo Gifts Now have high quality canvases that arrive ready to hang.

Photos are printed on high quality material and professionally hand-stretched using a solid pine frame.

They come in a range of sizes in both portrait and landscape.

I used a photo from last summer for my partner as a ‘stepdad’ gift from my son.

I’m so impressed with the thickness of the canvas for the low price.

Gadgets & Homeware

UK Terrariums

Terrarium kits are a lovely gift idea, and can get all of the family involved creatively.

UK Terrariums offer a range of kits including those for jars, fishbowls and even bottles.

There are self-care kits too which I have my eye on for myself!

We have the DIY Terrarium Kit in a Jar, which is a large, lidded jar that comes with soil. moss, stones, bark, pebbles and a succulent.

You can either make up the terrarium to then present as a gift, or the kit is also a great gift which encourages the kids to get involved.

I found it easy to make, and it was quite a relaxing activity to do with my son.

The kits are delivered in recyclable boxes and even the bags each part of the kit come in are biodegradable.

Each kit comes with an instruction manual which includes how to maintain it so you get years of enjoyment from it.

There are also beer and fine food hampers if cheese isn’t their thing!

The most popular hampers they have include:

I love that they also have a Build Your Own Hamper, which is what I recently did.

It’s easy to do, simply select the flavours of cheese, crackers and dips you want and it arrives in a lovely presentation box.

I chose some interesting cheeses including Carnival Cheddar and Botanist Gin to try.

My favourite was to combine the spicier cheeses, like Flamin Heart, with the Popadom Chutney on crackers.

The sweeter cheeses went well with the Red Onion Chutney, especially sprinkled on salad!

Chocface deliver personalised chocolate to your door, that include edible photographs of your choice.

You can create a DVD-sized box of six individual chocolate photos.

Each photo is made from edible food colourings and is placed on a layer of white chocolate, which is then put onto a thick layer of Belgian milk chocolate.

The box can be custom made to also include a personal message or name.

I designed one and was impressed at how quick and easy it was to do on their website.

Within minutes I had designed six gorgeous chocolates and a personal message.

I unboxed my finished product on an Instagram reel if you want to see how well made they are.

Games & Quirky Gifts

Cuckoo Clocks

During the 14th Century, German beer steins were popular, because people felt it was a more sanitary way to drink to avoid catching the Bubonic Plague.

Having a lid to close meant the bugs couldn’t get in to infect the beer.

Fast Forward to now and these steins remain popular across the world, making the perfect gift on Father’s Day.

When they were first created, they were made from pewter and earthenware, but things have changed!
