Things To Give... Dad ( Gift Guide )

Hey friends !

How's your Christmas going ? Who's feeling super organised with all their presents bought and wrapped pre December and who's in a panic desperately trying to find a free day to go shopping in between decorating the tree and planning Christmas dinner ? Well today I'm posting the second post in my Christmas Gift Guide Series and we're doing the tricky one . Dad. I don't know what it is but dads are always a nightmare to buy for , probably because they're less likely to want jewellery and there's only so many ( Half eaten ) boxes of chocolate I can get away with giving me dad !

Personalised Guitar Pick - £16.22- Etsy

Etsy is pretty much, a compilation of cute handmade things that are perfect for gifts and you end up wanting to keep them for yourself ! This adorable personalised guitar pick is no exception. You can have anything you like hand stamped onto this brass guitar pick that would definitely be treasured for years to come.


Song Lyric Cushion - £29.99 - NotOnTheHighStreet.com

This couldn't be simpler. Find your dads favourite song, have this cushion personalised with the lyrics and the title and voila ! Christmas Pressie done . This cushion could be the perfect present for any dad and I've a actually bought this as a Christmas present for my dad and can't wait to give it him :)



'Grumpy' Pyjamas - £12 - Asda

Who doesn't love pyjamas ? These hilarious Pyjama covered in pictures of grumpy from Snow White are a great present at an even better price ! You could team these up with their favourite movie and a bag of popcorn and you've got a movie night set .




What are you hoping to get your dads ? And how far have you got with your Christmas shopping ?
Let me know in the comments !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  1. I love the pillow idea, it looks so cool! I agree, it's so hard shopping for dads. I end up buying mugs, tshirts, or chocolate. All of which seems more like some kind of souvenir you can get at a tourist shop hahaha not personal at all

    1. Thank you ! It was a great find, I know my dad will love it, he's really into music ! You're right actually it is like just buying them holiday souvenirs and sometimes you just want it to be a little more personal :)

  5. Seriously, this one will probably be my favorite in the series because dads are SO hard to buy for. My dad is a huge football fan but I can only get him so many sports related things before it gets to be redundant. I LOVE that grumpy pj set and my dad would get such a kick out of something like that! Great ideas, keep them coming! I hope you're having a fantastic week so far my gorgeous friend! XO -Kim

  6. Hahahahaha the Grumpy PJ set I would totally get my Dad that, he would find it hilarious *Funny thing is I very rarely see him Grumpy though lol* I sooo agree Dad's are a lot harder to buy for, My Dad loves puzzles of the problem solving kind so they usually go down a treat!

  9. OMG! Yes! haha I have to agree, dad's are the hardest to shop for! I'm currently trying to decide what I want to get my dad for christmas. I don't want to just get him what we usually get him. I'm thinking of buying him something sports related because he LOVES sports so I'll have to make my way over to the sports store soon. I also can't believe it's already almost christmas :D <3 At work, I always tell people to have a nice day and some of them will say "thank you, Merry Christmas" back and it always puts a smile on my face because I'm like OMG! YEs! It is almost Christmas :'D and that just brightens up my whole day!! haha
