Father’s Day Gift Ideas
If you’ve been following my Twitter feed lately you’ll know that I’ve decided to make my Dad a deckchair for Father’s Day. Well, that’s the plan. I’ve got this horrible feeling though that it might turn out to be one of those decorative chairs that’s not totally fit for its basic purpose of seating someone (do these types of chairs exist??) Either way, I’ve made a start and I’m hoping to post my finished product on here next week along with a step by step “what-I-did.”
Just finished priming the frame (excuse the garage floor!)
So that’s Plan A.
But I realised today that Father’s Day is THIS WEEKEND! 4 days time in fact. So I really need a Plan B. I need some back up pressie ideas in the entirely likely event that this labour of love is a) not finished in time, b) a complete disaster, c) a health and safety hazard disguised as a loving, hand-made gift.
Here’s where I turn to the internet for inspiration (and to the Royal Mail’s next day delivery service should it come to that). I’m fortunate to have stumbled across some fabulous gift ideas whilst undergoing my daily blog browsing. Here’s a selection I’m keeping in mind for my Dad, who also happens to be the hardest person in the world to buy for. Thought I’d share:
Desk Tidy/Ipad Holder, from The Letteroom
Personalised Notebook - Top Dad Street, from Getting Personal
(Can be personalised with any name)
Rustic Vintage Painted Pine Step Ladder, from Boathouse Originals
The Plant Hunters Book, RHS Online Shop
(He loves plants)
And if I do decide to go home-made...
