Fathers Day Hamper review and giveaway

May 29, 2016

Fathers Day is just around the corner and although I’m sure most Dads would agree it’s not all about gifts, it is nice to be able to give them something isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to buy for the males in my life sometimes. Maybe I’m just unlucky but my Dad and James always say they don’t need anything or what they do want is really expensive, like a new BMW. I’m not joking! I’ve made my Dad hampers before of all the things that he likes and they have gone down really well. Well at least I think they did, all the food got eaten! So I’m really pleased to have been sent a lovely hamper by Hampers of Happiness full of things that a Dad would like. I’m also running a giveaway for one reader to win a Fathers Day hamper of their own.

    My dad is, though he thinks he’s really easy! His house is full of slippers & shirts. I’m thinking of buying him a chair he’s been eyeing for something different!

  22. Jo Carroll says:

    I think it’s a trait amongst British men particularly of the older generation – that probably goes back deep in their D.N.A. when they thought they were Lords and masters of all they surveyed – to accept gifts with any ounce of showing grace or enjoyment? πŸ˜‰ The thing is – and I don’t know if it’s just my own partner or dad – but they are the worst for moaning if they don’t get what they want…and first to say if they’ve been forgotten.

  23. Kerry Taylor says:

    My husband is quite hard to buy for, and since we’ve had our son I’ve struggled to get him presents from both of us!

  24. Ellen Sheppard says:

    Like you said in your blog, my dad always says he doesn’t need anything. He does like a single malt but he doesn’t drink very often so he has a cupboard full of the stuff, he never has time to go and spend vouchers so he gives them to my mum. He does fish but I have no clue what would be useful so unless he tells me, I don’t know what to get. It’s so frustrating!!

  25. Su Tyler says:

    My Father-in-Law is tough to buy for cos he doesn’t like a fuss and always says he doesn’t want anything.

We go cycle through all the typical things trying not duplicate too close together!

  168. Rachel Craig says:

    FiancΓ©, no he isn’t difficult to buy for :- Luckily. Though I must say that I have found it difficult to bchoose gifts for other male relatives and friends. I suppose initially we buy them the things we know they will like and use, and over the years it becomes more difficult. As we like the gift to be different, yet useful for the recipient.

  169. Ruth Wollerton says:

    My dad is the hardest because he has everything. Thanks xxx
