I know, I know, another damn Father’s Day gift guide. But don’t run away just yet, because this one has some fantastic ideas for those of you who want to give something extra special. Look no further because this post will give you three great ideas for personalised gifts for Father’s Day.
I usually find Father’s Day such a tricky time because I am always short of gift ideas. This year, however, is different. This year I have been lucky enough to work with some fabulous brands who can help you out with those gifts with a personal touch.
Tiger Pens are a large online pen shop who have recently launched a new laser engraving service. They are the first company in the UK to offer laser engraving for metal and plastic pens. There is a huge amount of stock available to choose from including well-known brands such as Parker and Pilot and their range includes marker pens, mechanical pencils, highlighters and drawing pencils, alongside the obvious ballpoint and fountain pens. They ship worldwide and offer free UK delivery on orders over £10.
This Parker ballpoint pen is perfect for the Little Man to give to his Daddy on Father’s Day, as he always needs a pen on him at work. I know he will love it. The presentation box is also a lovely touch. (Please note the pen is purposefully positioned in this way, for obvious reasons! It will usually be positioned centrally in the box!)

GiftsOnline4U are exactly that – an online gift shop! The gift shop specialises in personalised gifts, engraved gifts and unusual gifts for anyone and everyone! What is particularly great about the site is their range of engraved gifts. With a huge range to choose from, it makes buying gifts a great experience, in fact, you may find it really hard to choose!
I always struggle to find anything nice or unusual for my Dad. He’s at that age now where gift buying proves really difficult, so when I came across this beautifully engraved letter opener, I knew it would be perfect.
The letter opener is silver plated and has a beautiful two-tone finish on the handle. I know this will get a lot of use by my Dad because it’s a practical and traditional gift and it will replace on that he has been using for years. There is an option on checkout to also have the gift delivered with a gift bag, which saves you another job! I was also very impressed by the display box that it came in. It has a moulded insert which presents the letter opener perfectly.
My favourite part of the whole gift is the handle. With just enough characters available to have a Father’s Day message, it will be the perfect gift for my Dad this Father’s Day and one he can keep forever.
Contrado is a fashion brand who make more than 300 handmade custom clothes and fabric. They also make shoes, dresses, design accessories, and everything is handmade in the UK with UK suppliers and printed with a custom design. This seriously takes gift shopping to a whole new level!
I am very excited about the gift that I have ready for the Little Man to give his Daddy this Father’s Day because it is so perfect, it’s untrue.
I designed a custom made hoody, which is perfect for my gym mad husband. Workout and post workout clothes are a staple favourite of his at the moment and when I saw that this was an option available through Contrado, I couldn’t wait to set to and get designing.
I chose a simple design, as I wanted it to be something he would be comfortable to wear. I thought long and hard about what we could have on the front and I’m really pleased with the end result.
The clothes are designed using an online design tool and it is really very easy to use. You can have as little or as much detail as you like, in any colour you like and you can even upload pictures! You could get really carried away with this if you wanted to! It was great fun.
The quality of this jumper is really lovely. The material is really soft and whilst it’s not overly thick, it will be perfect for those evenings where the husband leaves the gym and is still relatively warm from his workout. I just know he will love this.
Contrado’s sister brand Bags Of Love is running a Father’s Day competition which is open until this SUNDAY, 11th JUNE. The competition is to celebrate all the dads, stepdads, grandads and father figures out there. They have teamed up with Dreams Come True and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity and created a Father’s Day Design Contest. All you and your child need to do is design a leather wallet – it’s really that simple! To enter the Father’s Day Design Contest and be in with a chance of winning up to £600 worth of prizes, click the button: https://www.bagsoflove.co.uk/contest/17.
So there we have it. My choice of personalised gifts for Father’s Day. I hope you enjoyed my choices and want to take this opportunity to wish all of you Dad’s out there, a very Happy Father’s Day. You all do an amazing job!
