Father’s Day Gift Guide 2014

I always know when Father’s Day is approaching.

Miss J my eight year old daughter pulled me aside the other day, “Mummy sshhh come here, I have to tell you something”. I got a little worried, “What is it sweetie?”.

“Mummy I need some money, the school Father’s Day stall is soon”.

The kids always get so excited when the school Fathers/Mother’s Day Stall rolls around. I won’t lie, both my husband and I have received some questionable gifts {world’s best dad back scratcher, electric blue V-Dub bookends} but no matter how random, these gifts sit pride of place along side the handmade cards and drawings πŸ™‚

And although these gifts are beautiful πŸ™‚ here are few other gift ideas for dad.

 

Perfect gift for new dads.

Babies Don't Suck

This book is bloody hilarious. Babies Don’t Suck is author Aaron Blabey’s first book for adults, he’s better known for his award winning children’s books (including Pearl Barley and Charlie Parsley).Β  Babies Don’t Suck is an A-Z survival guide for new dads andΒ with only 498 words it’s super fast to read (because let’s face it us parents can be time poor). Babies Don’t Suck is a hard cover book with great illustrations (also by Aaron Babley – talented man!)

It’s the perfect gift for any new dad this Father’s Day. Available from 1 September for $19.99.

Old school shave cream.

Old school shave cream

This Old School Shave Cream from Murphy & Daughters is just the thing for dad this Father’s Day. Fragranced with top notes of Eucalyptus, Menthol and Lavender, this cream takes you back to the old school charm of the barber’s chair. Boosted with botanical ingredients and essential oils, it has a lovely lather and is great for sensitive skin. It contains coconut oil, shea butter, macadamia seed oil, aloe vera and sandalwood and is perfect for sensitive skin.

The Old School Shave Cream is $35. To purchase or for more information visit www.murphyanddaughters.com.au

 

A collector’s item perhaps?

Curious Grace TV Chair

For the dad who appreciates style and design look no further than Curious Grace. With a range of beautiful furniture, art and homewares the only problem you’ll have here is deciding what to choose. My pick is the Featherston TV Chair. The Featherston TV Chair is no replica and is the original 1953 design newly manufactured under the Featherston family estate license. At $2,810 these chairs aren’t cheap so you might want to join forces with your siblings πŸ™‚ but dad’s worth it, right!

Pocket money options

    Time travel, so he could go back in time and not have the surgery he was told would alleviate his pain but instead left him worse than what he was before it.

    The recipe to ‘perfect every time home brew’, to restore his sanity and stop him pulling out what little hair he has left on that lovely head of his.

    The ability to power up his angel wings and soar down to us. Not wanting to be morbid but we lost my Dad too many years ago. We have all missed out on so much, his laughter, his infectious personality and my children have never met their Grandad. I struggle to truly express the man that he was. If only they could experience his beautiful nature and experience for themselves the capacity to love that this beautiful man held. I know he would love to know his family so very very much.
