Last Minute Fathers Day Gifts

Hey my lovelies!
Hope you are all doing fab!
Fathers Day always seems to crop up on me without me realising it, I think it's partly due to mummys birthday being on the 12th and my mind gets so preoccupied with that.
This year I was determined to be prepared and get Daddy Preener all sorted. He is a creature of habit and so is his gifts he gets, jumpers, shirts and trousers and Lynx Africa deodorant!
I always get him a little trinket to put on his windowsill in his computer room, and this year I grabbed a little No. 1 Dad trophy.
I know for me its easy to buy my Daddy, but looking at my facebook it is clear to see people struggle, and with the day only around the corner, I thought I would write a little quick post on a few ideas that can either be bought in store, online with quick delivery or collection to a store.

1. Star Wars Messenger Bag  £24.99
I love this bag and I know my hubby would adore it! "Man Bags" have become so popular and Mr Preener has a nice collection including Marvel, Joker and Batman, can you see a recurring comic book theme here. This bag can be ordered online and picked up in store within 4 days giving you enough time. Some larger Argos stores will have it in stock there and then. You can buy it here

2. Arcade Mania 75 in 1 Games Machine £999.99
If you are feeling like really treating Dad then why not spoil him with this retro gaming machine! Just think put this in his man cave room and you can enjoy your soaps in peace, or is that just the thinking I would take! Again this is from Argos but is solely home delivery and can be 5 days, go check it out here

3.Jeff Banks Shirt £19
If your Dad is anything like mine, he appreciates anything, and he loves a classic striped blue shirt, I am sure Daddy Preener has 10 of these in his wardrobe. This is from Debenhams and they offer free next day click and collect or their standard delivery. This is a classic shirt with slight tailoring for a more fitted feel which all dads would love to add to their collection. Grab it here

4. Maine Pyjama Set £18
This gorgeous pyjama set comes with a wine ribbed top and long bottoms. The great thing with this set is that it can be mixed and matched with items your Dad might already have, and at £18 its a great bargain. Grab it here from Debenhams.

5. Elemis Anti Fatigue Roll on Eye Gel £25
This Elemis eye gel would be a great addition to any Dads grooming routine. My dad gets very tired and sore eyes from using a computer for many hours a day, so this is something I definitely would consider getting him. Asos are really coming up trumps with their beauty sections recently and its now not a matter of clothes for me its a whole other shopping spree. Find it here. Asos do different delivery services dependant on your location, but they have only ever taken 3/4 days max to deliver to me.

6. Tweezerman Multi Use Tool Keyring £20
This is a fab little invention, and Tweezerman is a brand you can trust so you know it will be good quality. My dad would definitely love this as its gadgety but practical. Find it here from Asos.

7. Hugo Boss Wallet and Card Holder Set £139
For a lovely treat you can't beat a nice leather wallet and Hugo Boss is a brand that exudes luxury and class. Hubby has been eyeing this pic up and I might treat him for Christmas. Shop for it here again from Asos.

8.Pickmaster Plectrum Punch £16.95
Prezzybox is a site I always head to when I am looking for gifts with an edge, and this plectrum punch has not let me down. I know lots of friends who would adore this, and if your Dad loves a wee bit of guitar then this could be the perfect gift. Head here and snap this up at. This company aims for a few days delivery so get your skates on if you fancy it.

9.Present for my Dad £9.95
This has to be one of the cutest gifts I have ever set my eyes on. Another winner from Prezzybox. Basically its a book talking about a journey a child goes on to find the perfect gift, but in the end the child decides to buy their dad a pair of bright socks to show them how much they brighten up their day. Cuteness overload here

10. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Aftershave £54.99
Sometimes a nice classic bottle of aftershave is the best idea. This is one of the hottest scents and brands at the moment. Head here to Boots to grab this. You can get this in store, or get it delivered to your house or store. Boots making shopping far too easy!!

Of course it doesn't just need to be a Dad you can buy for on Fathers Day, you can spoil your Grandpa, StepDad or even your hubby if you guys have wee ones. Lets show the men in our lives just how much we love and appreciate them!
I hope I have given you some last minute ideas to buy, let me know what you are planning on getting the special man in your life.
