Father’s Day can often be a challenge. You have to buy a suitable gift then have the additional stress of the gift wrapping. If you’re stuck for Father’s Day Gifts and ideas, read on…
A really special gift is to make something. Maybe a homemade jam, marmalade or jar of fudge. Add a paper lid and some raffia, and it will look as though you’ve been to a luxurious deli!
A favourite tipple is always a good bet, and here I have wrapped a bottle up with some tissue and yellow cellophane from my local florist (they usually sell it by the metre).
Herbs and foliage out of the garden look great tied in to ribbon and smell wonderful too! This is perfect for garden lovers.
Here I have baked some sliced oranges and added these as a decoration with an understated Brown stitched ribbon (one of my favourite looks)
You could also pick up some feathers off rural walks, and tie them in for a country persuits theme
Newspaper is great to use, and here I have made a handmade gift bag and tied in some contrasting Sage Ribbon
I love the pastel colour of the Financial Times and it makes a great canvas. Here you could add a brown, orange or metallic ribbon for the ultimate statement, or leave it plain and understated.
You could also pleat the newspaper too which will instantly give it a luxury element. You could also use a foreign newspaper, comic or old magazine as an alternative.
Cufflinks is another great gift for dad, and here I have wrapped some gentleman’s gifts in a monochrome theme for a corporate event.
This is a classic look and a favourite of luxury brands. A plain black paper immediately gets a lift with this black and white dotty ribbon tied in a simple bow
Even if you haven’t got the time or expense to go mad for dad, just a little extra thought will make him feel super special!
Don’t forget that Father’s Day is on Sunday 15th June (UK)…
