Gift Guides- Father’s Day 2018 Edition

Can you believe that it is nearly father day already it does not seem like it was long since I was writing up my Christmas gift guide.  However, today I am going to share with you some ideas which you could purchase for the special man in your life your dad, stepdad, uncle, grandad or whoever it may be.  I know that occasions like this you want to make them show you care and love them without actually breaking the bank.  Joe has been a lucky guy because for the past few weeks maybe a month has been testing out some of these products in order to give you a small review of the items.

The first brand which I want to share with you is Admiral Male Grooming they are a brand who do skin care, beard and hair care for men. As you can see from the pictures above their products look very expensive however, this is really not the case. The quality is very high, to be honest, I have tried these products and I think I would rate them as good as the Lush ones which I normally would reach for.  I think my favourite would have to be the facial scrub you really do only need a really small amount due to it going a long way. It is actually very scrubby which for me is always a bonus as I want to feel like it is doing something without being too rough on my skin.  The products range from around £13-£25 depending on what you are purchasing there is going to be a whole review of the company coming up and a discount code for you all. While browsing their site I did notice that there is a lot of money off products at the moment which may be worth stocking up on. This is something which we have done due to the fact we both love the products so much. There is something there for every man and they do not have a harsh Male scent if anything they are very unisex so you could both end up using them if this is something you wanted to do.

Want something a little more personalised Max Louis Creative maybe have the solution. They do personalised prints are  handmade and made specifically to the gifter’s requirements. There are 3 different styles to choose from: personalised word photo, personalised oil effect print. They are unique, completely personalised and special gifts for loved ones. As you can see have had a picture of Jess and Joe printed it is an old print however, it is one which I do love.  You can choose between 25-100 words but I did struggle to find as many words I think I just picked over 25. I do not think that it looks too sparse though. This is a present which is very personalised and would look amazing in a frame on a wall somewhere in the house, For sure it is going to be one which I need to get a frame for so we can hang when we finally get our own place later this year.  For the one like mine they can be ordered from as little as £12.99. You do have to order by the 11th June in order to get in time for Father’s Day.

Another thing when it comes to Father’s day which we all think about is shaving products.  Wilkinson Sword have launched there new  Hydro 5 Sense razor. This is designed to make sure that you do not put too much pressure on your face which shaving which could cause your skin to look tired and old. Something for sure you do not want you dad to look this razor from what I have been told by Joe is actually a good razor as someone who shaved daily for work he does not want to be applying too much pressure and causing damage to his skin.  The razor does change the amount of pressure it’s self which means that you do not have to do anything extra.  It does also help protect from irritation which is always another big bonus and it doesn’t break the bank coming in around the £12 mark.

Another personalised gift which you could purchase this father’s day is a  super dad slate coaster. This allows you to put your name or the child’s name above super dad.  Joe spends a lot fo time on his computer and always needs to drink more while playing games. So this is the perfect gift for him because it means that he knows where it is and should have a drink on him. He also adores superheroes for example Marvel so this was a very ideal gift for him. Due to the fact that it is actually slate it meant that is not going to crack as easy as a cheaper one and it is personalised with Jess’s name which is always a bonus.  It is from the lovely company Norma and Dorothy It retails for £9.50 with postage. I actually want one with super mum this is something which I might have to try and find closer to mother’s day so we can match.

Cards are something which I can spend hours creating due to the fact I can spend hours on moonpig. However, Norma and Dorothy also do some amazing personalised father’s day cards as well which meant I only had to spend a short time creating it. Which is a bonus because then I can spend more time with the family.  The one I choose really is because of the fact he will find it funny I struggle to purchase Joe a card because of the fact that it is his birthday like 5 days before.  So it means that I have to create around 3 cards for the same period of time.  The card is handmade to a very high standard way above the one which I could make even if you do not purchase him a gift this year I am sure this can would more than make up for it.

The final item which I am going to include in this gift guide is another razor because for sure you can never have too many of these. Unless you have an amazing beard gosh I can’t wait for the day Joe can grow one again. Gillette has launched a new Chrome razor which is exclusive to Boots. This razor is designed with 5 anti-friction blades which means that you’re going to reduce the chance of getting shaving rash and irritated skin. The back of this razor also allows you to reach those hard to get areas which you may normally miss alongside the roller ball which means that it is easier to shave. The amazing thing about this razor is the fact that it can last up to a month of shaves without needing the blade to be replaced.  For only £15 this is going to make sure that your dad is clean shaven save some of his money.

What are you getting you Dad this father’s day?

Personalised Photo Frame – Giftsonline4U Review

Personalised items are always special when it comes to receiving a gift. It means that someone has put the thought into the gift and had it created for you. Photo frames are something which is super special even more when they are personalised due to the fact that you can add a picture which means so much to it as well. Giftsonline4U is an online website which allows you to do this. They also have a website full of personalised gifts this means that you will always be able to find a perfect gift for a birthday, valentines day, mother’s day even father’s day

As you can see I was lucky to receive this personalised photo frame which has the words the crazy bunch we are a family.  I have chosen to put a picture when Joe met Jess for the first time in this as it is a very special picture to me which I want to treasure and display.  The photo frames come in a 6 x 4 inch frame which is amazing as this is a standard photo size.  I have found before some picture frames can be very strange sizes meaning you can not get your pictures into the frame.

Even though this item is of course personalised it does not come with a huge price tag it is very reasonably priced as a gift it is priced at £19.99. This means that you could gift this to a number of different people for different occasions for example a picture of you and your other half in this frame would make such a nice valentines day idea. Maybe you could put a quote which means something to the both of you under the picture. You do have 40 characters to play with which can be engraved onto the frame. Mother’s day is also fastly approaching this would be perfect for this as well I for sure know I would love to receive a personalised photo frame. With standard delivery you wait between two and seven days which means that you always have time to order even if it is a little bit last minute.

When you receive the photo frame it does come boxed and well packaged meaning that it will not break in transit as this is something I am always scared of when purchasing fragile items online. I managed to get mine with no damage so I would recommend if you are scared don’t be. The photo frame is of very high quality the engravement  you for sure can tell that this is very professional. I would recommend getting too many characters as this could possible effect the quality however, mine is perfect and does have a large number of characters I think it is close to the limit.

I found that the website was full of amazing gifts which could be used for any occasion I have found several gifts which I would love to be able to gift to people in the future. Due to the fact I know how high quality they are I would even send them straight to the person as some of you know we have family who do not live close and we have to send gifts directly to them. There are gifts of all different prices which would suit all kinds of budgets with the majority of them having the option to be personalised it a makes it look like you have spend more money. For sure this is a site which I will be looking at when I need gifts in the future.

Have you purchased from Giftsonline4U if so what did you think?
