Daddy's Girl

Father's Day presents are so damn hard to get right.  My dad doesn't need or seem to want anything, doesn't have a wishlist and is always pretty difficult to buy for.  But here are three of my favourite Father's Day gift ideas I've seen.

This fine bone china mug will brighten up any tea time. Dishwasher and microwave safe

Who doesn't like mugs?  He drinks tea and coffee; he's human.  Pretty failsafe, I reckon.

Made from bobbins rescued from a Lancashire woollen mill, this lovely piece was expertly rehabilitated from Mark and Sally Bailey's Herefordshire farm.  The Baileys' eco-friendly 'rescue and re-use' principles breathe new life into old objects.

Who doesn't like objets?!  Men love having stuff like this in studies... He likes dark wood, I like recycled materials and the masculine, classic design should suit his home well.

The new Aromatherapy Associates kit for men includes the highly acclaimed De-Stress Bath & Shower Oil (55ml) and De-Stress Muscle Gel (150ml).  Perfect for sportsmen, the powerful oil blends in each product are designed to relieve aching muscles and joints, making them ideal to use after a workout or a hard day in the office. The products include Herbaceous Lavender - a known analgesic that helps support tender muscles -  and Ginger and Black Pepper to warm and help boost circulation.  

And thirdly, as he's a cycling and fitness fanatic, these wonderful-smelling products to help ease aches, strains, pains and sports injuries.

If he doesn't like these, he's not getting anything next year...
