Fathers Day Gift Guide 2016

It's getting to that time of year again when we have to sift past the inevitable pair of socks or tie and find a thoughtful gift for the Dads in our lives. I have been busy putting together this guide for you, a one-stop shop no matter what your taste is or what your budget is.
The bobble sport is the perfect gift for the Dad who enjoys the gym or exercise. It is designed specifically with an active life in mind. The bottle shape has a moulded grip, a carry handle, and will fit bike cages, car and treadmill cup holders. The innovative filter removes carbon from your water as you drink. The bottle holds 650ml and the filters are good for around 300 single bottle uses. You can even buy replacement filters from the online store. Think of how much you can give back to the environment by using one of these, that's 300 fewer plastic bottles in the bin!
This is perfect for the Dad who likes a clean shave!! Did you know that… according to recent studies, most guys take on average 170 strokes every time they shave, and 120 of them are re-strokes over the same area of the face after the initial strokes have wiped away most of the protective shave gel.  For this reason, Gillette has launched the new ProShield razor, combating skin irritation with an added lubrication strip before and after the blade. The flexball technology responds to the contours of the face and gets virtually every hair.
I love this and its perfect for the Dad I need to buy for! He has a thing for skulls and loves to sketch them. This is right up his street from Value Lights, who drawn inspiration from Damien Hirst’s famous diamond skull and created our own chrome plated 'Yorick' skull table lamp featuring a modern skull base with a polished chrome finish. It features a skull moulded base  which is silver chrome plated and a black fabric shade. It looks amazing and is a real quirky piece. Mr RTR absolutely loves it and it's made itself at home in the dining room. The lamp takes a golfball bulb and is about 17 inches high, so it's a great size.
For the tea or coffee drinker how about a lovely mug? This ceramic mug from Born Gifted features their new Vintage Typography design. You can personalise with any name on the front up to 12 characters and add your own personal message on the reverse, up to 4 lines of 20 characters each. The mug is lovely looking and made of nice quality ceramic. If you are in a hurry you can order this and it can be dispatched within 24 hours.
The ideal gift for the Dad who smokes, there is nothing worse than trying to light your cigarette in the wind and rain! They can show off this classy windproof lighter when hanging out with the guys. The black matte lighter features a moustache with gentlemen’s style written on. It Comes packaged in an environmentally friendly gift box., so you don't even have to wrap it. For optimum performance, fill with Zippo premium lighter fluid, which you can buy separately, it's a gift that will last as you can buy replacement wicks to keep it going for years.
This is perfect for your bearded Dads out there, this Braun beard trimmer is easy to adjust with the click & lock trimming comb for 20 precise settings. The precision comb is graded from 1 - 10 mm with 0.5mm steps in between, so no matter how bushy his beard he can tame it right away. You can also remove the precision comb for a really close shave. The dual battery system gives a powerful performance, cordless or corded. A full charge takes 1 hour and gives you 40 minutes of cordless performance and a 5-minute quick charge is enough for 1 trim. Another advantage of this trimmer over others on the market is this one is fully washable, so it can be run under the tap to be cleaned. Inside the box is also a mini cleaning comb and some oil to keep the blades functional. You can check out our demo video of the trimmer here on our Youtube Channel.
This is perfect for the foodie Dad, this porcelain platter is perfect for cheese, tapas or even pizza. It's perfect for presenting food on the dining table and looks stunning in the black porcelain. The platter is also over proof up to 220 celsius. It's even dishwasher safe and comes with a great 10-year guarantee. 
Emie Bluetooth Speaker - around £28
This is perfect for the music loving Dad, the ideal gift for listening to music on the go. The speaker is designed to look like a radio but is a portable Bluetooth speaker. It provides a daylong music experience with its embedded 6-hour battery. It pocket sized and is sound tuned by professionals, it has anti-slip pads on the bottom and turns off after being idle for 30 minutes.
The Detamaso watch has a ronda swiss manufatured chronograph movement, a runner fnction, rotatable GMT bezel so you can adjsut the time wothout turung the hands, sapphire coated clock face and genuine leather strap. I am really pleased with the quality of this watch. The strap is a really good size, my husband has quite a big wrist and this is a great fit. The movement is really smooth and the buttons on the side work well, my hubby uses the to do lap times. It is water resistant for washing and showers, but not swimming. The watch comes in a lovely presentation tin, so makes a really nice gift.

What do you think of my suggestions? Is there something you already have planned for the Dad in your life? Leave me a comment and let me know!
