Fail-Safe Father’s Day Gifts with Boots

Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s that time of year where we go and find the best gifts for the Dads and Grandfather’s in our life. It’s a day I especially love celebrating. If you know me personally, or if you’ve followed me for a while you may know that I was brought up by my Dad. There’s a long story behind it, but cutting it short, he took on single-parenting and took on both roles of parenting very unexpectedly and he’s done amazing.

I think Father’s Day is a day we should celebrate Dads and Grandfathers out there and thank them for everything that they have done. But also not forgetting the Step-Father’s out there too. My partner is a Step-Dad to my eldest, and has done for over 7 years now. He has been amazing with her since the first day he met her and I can’t thank him enough for bringing her up like his own.

Every year, my partner and I, with the kids, will always go for a Father’s Day walk. Whether it’s along the seaside, through a muddy field, a walk through a forest or just a sight-seeing walk, we just love going outdoors, having fun and making memories. It’s always nice to have a little tradition once a year. Although we go out for a walk often, we do try and make our walk on Father’s Day a little more exciting or different by taking a picnic with us, visiting somewhere totally different or even finding a new place to explore.

If you’re stuck on how to spend Father’s Day this year, here are a few ways you could celebrate:

Go out for a Father’s Day meal
Go for a long walk along the seaside
Have a Father’s Day BBQ in the back garden
Have a movie night at home with snacks
Host a little Father’s Day get-together
Go paintballing /bowling/fishing

Although there are many ways to celebrate the special day, the most difficult thing to sort is the gift. I personally find it easier to buy gifts for women than I do for men. But this year, Boots have a great collection of Fail-Safe Father’s Day Gifts that would be great gifts for your Dad, Grandfather or someone special this year:

Fragrances are a great gift for men for Father's Day. Boots have a large collection of great branded fragrances such as Gucci Guilty, Hugo Boss, Paco Rabanne 1 Million and my Dad's favourite fragrance, Jean Paul Gaultier. I am sure whether it's your Dad, your partner, your grandfather or whoever you are buying for this Father's Day, won't be dissapointed when they are gifted they're favourite fragrance, or even a new fragrance they've not had before.

Boots don't only sell fragrances, but they also have a great collection of other gifts for Father's Day such as a large range of L'Oreal Paris products that include; Face wash, face scrubs, Hydra Energy face masks to help moisture and hydrate your face and daily moisturiser. If you know someone who loves to look after their skin, the L'Oreal 'The Daily Expert' is a great gift set to give. It includes three products: eye roll-on, moisturiser and deodorant.

Talking about skin, if you know someone who shaves then they have a great gift set for men with short beards. From L'Oreal again, is the Barber Club Short Beard Kit which includes Beard Wash and Beards Moisturiser. For something a little more fancy, Harry's Shave Set is a great gift to give. It includes a shaver, extra blades and shave cream. The set also comes presented in a nice gifted box, which is always an added bonus. There are also other Harry's products available too such as Harry's Shave Gel which is a high-quality shaving gel enriched with a blend of aloe and cucumber. Harry's Shave Cream is 100ml bottle and is a cream that helps give you a smooth, close and comfortable shave. After a good shave Harry's Men's Post Shave Balm that will soothe your skin straight after shaving, reducing the redness and help you feel refreshed. Lastly, Harry's Mens Face Lotion helps hydrate your skin, and a bonus is that it's lightweight and non-greasy.

This post is an advertised collaboration with Boots but all thoughts are my own.


  1. Take the dogs for a long walk to the beach or up a mountain - with a metal detector. I always buy my Dad a toblerone for fathers day, it's a joke we have now.. he calls it toblerone day!

  2. I lost my dad last year, but we always loved going on walks and just chatting about life.

  3. I usually buy a card and hamper , he also loves liquorice

  4. Great ideas. I never know what to buy my dad or husband!

    I usually spend the day at home with my gad and have a nice family meal. Dad likes to have aftershave and smellies or a top for presents.

  6. my dad is really hard to buy for as he has everything already. I usually bake him something and have a nice meal together

  7. We like to have a family meal and he likes chocolate as a gift or puzzles

  8. I love to go out for a meal with my Dad as he's a big foodie! Likewise, he loves foodie gifts like last year I got him a grow your own chilli set which went down really well!

  9. Usually just have a drink with him and nice meal.
