Father’s Day gift panic buying!

Father’s Day gift panic buying!

I feel as though Father’s Day has really crept up fast this year. It was weeks away last thing I knew, now all of a sudden it’s this weekend!

Luckily, I’m pretty much done on the present front. However, I’ve compiled a list of ideas for those of you who need to panic buy gifts for your husbands, dads and grandads over the next 4 days!


I don’t think I’ve ever met a dad that doesn’t like shortbread. This fancy looking shortbread from John Lewis comes in a tasteful tin with a thistle design.



Flowers aren’t just for women! Why not take the time to arrange some flowers in a hanging basket or planter for your dad or grandad? If you’re short on time, you could buy one from a garden centre or supermarket.

This sunflower planter for £30 from Marks & Spencer will brighten up the garden and be sure to put a smile on his face!

You could pop into a high street jewellers and find your dad a nice watch or bracelet.

Alternatively, you could get him this stylish Solaris Aurora Bracelet. It’s £59.99 from Vanacci and is made of a special material that will capture the fragrance he uses, helping him to smell good for longer! If you get the 1-3 days delivery, you might just about get it in time!


Amazon Echo Dot

Let’s face it, Amazon Echos are one of the coolest gadgets around and so useful too! They’re currently £44.99 at Amazon.

Supermarket finds

Of course, there are always Father’s Day gifts in supermarkets if you really get stuck. They’re usually the standard socks and mugs, but there’s also books, alcohol and chocolate!

This chocolate trophy is £2 in Morrisons.

Supermarkets often sell photo frames too, which would make a lovely personal gift with a photograph of you both in it!

I hope you’re feeling inspired now…let me know how you get on!

Disclosure: I have not written this post in affiliation with any of the businesses mentioned in this post. However, I will shortly be receiving a bracelet from Vanacci to review. All opinions are honest and my own.

P.s. Have you checked out my Father’s Day giveaway?

    Some really good gift ideas. That echo dot looks really cool! We just ended up buying chocolate, bit boring but my Dad liked it. #brillblogposts
