I hate buying presents for men... who doesn't? They're just impossible to buy for, and with Father's Day just under a month away it's started to play on my mind a bit!

I'm not usually one for being prepared this far in advance, but the fact I have two people to buy for (my Dad and Robbie from Elodie) means it's double the stress, so I've decided to start looking and planning early... Well, early for me!
19th June is the big day, so if you need a few ideas for what to buy the man who has everything, hopefully some of these ideas will help you out.

If your Dad is a bit of a softy who likes a drink, he will love this engraved pint glass with it's cute Dad/Daughter message, plus if it's something he will use, you really can't go wrong. Fill it up with his favourite sweets before you wrap it up or buy him a bottle of his favourite beer to go alongside it and he will be happy.
For the man who has everything and loves a gadget is the present I have bought for My Dad (let's hope he's not reading this!); a tube wringer, which in my opinion is a genius idea! Who gets sick of the men around the house moaning that they can't get the last bit of toothpaste or tomato puree out of the tube?.. Well problem solved with this little gadget, waste not want not!

If you're a last minute kind of person like I usually find myself being (always completely unintentionally) run along to your local Lush store and check out the range of Lush Father's Day Products... There is something for every budget, soaps, bath bombs and gift sets which of course come pre-wrapped, so there's even less hassle. Trust me, any man will enjoy a Lush bath, and if he's says he won't, he's lying!

Another gadget type gift which I love is a Shower Squid... Something I am definitely considering buying for Robbie as I am sick of picking up all of his bottles and tubes from the bottom of the bath after he's been in. This grips onto shampoo, shower gel, anything you need it to really and keeps everything tidy and together... Every woman needs to buy one of these for their man! It's a fun idea which Elodie will love to gift him, but it definitely serves a purpose too.

If your Dad is into his food and cooking, I love the idea of a Himalayan Salt BBQ Plank as a gift, especially if he likes to show off in the kitchen. They're really quirky and different, perfect for BBQ season and definitely not something he will guess you're going to buy for him. This can be chilled to help keep food cold, used to prep food and add salt to your ingredients or as a serving platter.

One of my favourite gifts if you're from a big family is a set of personalised family mugs! You can select skin tone, hair colour, clothes and names you want to appear on each mug and are given a cartoon character of each person in the family. Although this is kind of a gift for everyone, I'm sure any Dad would appreciate these, they're so cool and if mugs aren't your first choice, there are lots of similar ideas on the Uncommon Goods site.
Another personalised gift is a Travel Stub Diary, you could collect your Dad's travel tickets, photos etc and fill this in for him to look back on holidays and places he's visited or leave it blank for him to fill up himself - I think anything that's taken a bit of thought is always a winner.

What are you buying for your Dad this year?
