Father's Day Gift Ideas 2016

Whilst you can't go wrong with a pair of socks and a bar of whole nut, if you fancy something a little different this Father's Day - check out some of my ideas below!

Amazon Fire TV Stick, £34.99

There is nothing quite like getting stuck in to a good box set. Settling in to an episode of House of Cards once the kids are in bed is our new 'going out'! With this little gizmo, you have access to over 50,000 popular movies and TV shows available to buy or rent as well as over 4,200 channels, apps and games. And if dad has Amazon Prime, he has unlimited access to Prime Video - a catalogue of over 15,000 shows and movies available on-demand. This is a very big gift in a very dinky package!

Pacapod Prescott Changing Bag, £115

A favourite with the celebrity Daddies, the Prescott satchel has been spotted on Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Hemsworth. This gift is sure to be a hit for a stylish 'hands on' dad this Father's Day. As with all of the Pacapod bags, it hits all the practical baby boxes without sacrificing on style and even has a hidden padded laptop section so is also great for commutes or off duty days out.

Go Ape Experience from £33

I have heard such great things about the Go Ape experience, it just sounds perfect for families or couples - I have actually booked for Paul and I to do this for our day date next month! Children as young as six can monkey around on Tree Top Junior, while older children can fly through the sky on a zip wire, race through the forest on a Segway or swing through the trees like Tarzan on the Tree Top Adventure. What a great Father's Day out - it certainly beats staying indoors all morning slaving over his favourite lunch!

RE9 Advanced For Men Set from £24

This is the ultimate in Mens skincare. Only launched in April it is already a best seller and has had unbelievable press coverage. The anti-ageing results are visible within 4 weeks (usually much, much sooner) but the smooth experience of using the products will be enjoyed immediately! As with the entire Arbonne range, the products are vegan friendly and totally botanical. If the Dad in your life takes care of his skin - this is the gift for him! Arbonne is only available to buy through certain channels so check out my blog for more info.

Red Letter Day, Indoor Sky Diving Experience, £100

I recently did this with my husband and 4 year old daughter, it was AWESOME! Such a fun afternoon out as a family. You'll be given full training on how to compose yourself and what to expect ahead of the flight, and will have the support (and peace of mind!) of a flying expert in the wind tunnel with you. If heights aren't your thing, this is a great way to experience the sensation of sky diving. This gift will certainly have the wow factor this Father's Day!
