Father’s Day Gift Guide

With Father’s Day on it’s way, this year on Sunday 18th June, it’s that time to look for gifts suitable for the father figure in your life, whether it’s for your children to give their daddy, you to give the husband, or give to your own father.  For us we aim to look for gifts that are useful and practical along with a few handmade personalised items from the kids.

Something that I’d buy either my husband or my dad would be a watch such as this Anthony James Emperor Men’s Sports Wrist Watch.  It’s a stylish design that’s practical for everyday wear.

It has a rubber strap which makes it comfortable and can easily be adjusted with the buckle.  This gives the watch an everyday look which is great for day to day wear for the man in your life. There is also some metal detail on the strap near the face which I really liked.  The face of the watch is chunky and clear to read, all in all a winner for someone like my husband!

Next up is Sugru, if you haven’t heard of it then it’s a rather ingenious mouldable glue.  It can also adhere to a multitude of surfaces such as ceramics, glass, metal, wood, and most plastics and fabrics.  In just 24hrs it turns into a durable, flexible silicone rubber that stays put unless you remove it.  How fabulous is that?

For Father’s day how about buying you dad the Sugru Rebel Tech Kit, containing

  • 4 single-use packs of Sugru in Pitch Black, Snow White, Silver Grey and Classic Red
  • a booklet full of project ideas and how-to guides
  • our new Sugru Remover
  • a handy storage tin

I imagine this will keep him busy for ages fixing and creating things.  I’ve already got a few things planned that we can try with this, along with the ideas in the included booklet.   This is different, useful, interesting and fun so a great idea to get dad’s who would like something a little bit unusual.

Finally, something like a new tablet or phone case is always a popular and affordable option.  Whether you opt for personalised or a generic design it’s sure to be a gift that is practical and used daily.

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received some of the products in order to write an honest review.

Globenfeld Jetmaster Sports Watch

Globenfeld is a long established luxury watch brand that brings modern, stylish designs suitable for both work and sports environments.  The Jetmaster is a prime example of this with a durable rubber strap, although with silver bars between to give it a more stylish appearance.  As well as it ‘s stylish, masculine look, it includes a stopwatch and is water resistant up to 30m.

The watches are presented in a stylish gift box which can double up as a place to keep the watch when not in use.  This style is perfect for my husband who requires a durable watch at work, but also one that looks good at home and nights out, so this fits the bill in all cases.

It has many features, with the date and time being useful and the stop watch being a handy thing to have, the kids love daddy timing him on races etc.

Other key characteristics include:

  • Water Resistant 30 M
  • 12/24 time format
  • Day, date and month features
  • Alarm with chime
  • Stop watch
  • Watch back light function (for night vision)
  • Textured jet black dial
  • Scissor hands

We liked the fact that the three dials can simply be lit up with a quick press of the top left crown, brilliant for seeing in a dark venue during the evening etc.  The whole watch is ultra stylish and great for everyday wear.  It looks impressive, is great quality and is perfect for a family man with it’s durable strap.

If you are looking for a watch then why not check out the Globenfeld range, a whole choice of stylish watches for the man in your life, a great gift for any occasion!

Cool Create One Direction Swap Watch Review

Cool Create One Direction Swap Watch is a great craft kit for One Direction fans but also a great little set to make your own watches and be creative.  With lots of pieces inside we couldn’t wait to get started and get making.

one directionThe set comprises of:

  • 1 x watch face
  • 5 x watch face trims
  • 5 x watch surrounds
  • 5 x watch straps
  • 3 x coloured cord
  • 1 x elasticated cord
  • 9 x square beads
  • 13 x tube beads
  • 26 x round beads
  • 8 x connector pieces
  • 1 x instruction sheet

Miss M was excited when she saw all the pieces and couldn’t wait to start making her own watches.  There is one watch face which you can make different straps for and then interchange them when you wish.

one direction 2There are ready made straps and watch surrounds that you can interchange easily to make different design watchs, but Miss M’s favourite straps were the ones she made herself.  There three coloured lengths of cord which can be plaited to make a strap.  Also there is a bag of beads which can be threaded onto elasticated thread to make a stretchy watch strap.  Miss M loved picking the coloured beads to make a pattern on her strap.  These two straps are a great little activity that Miss M loved doing and kept her occupied.

one direction 3Children love mix and match watches and it’s great to have a different choice each morning, just pop out the watch face and put it into the strap that you want to wear.  Miss M is pleased with all her new watches and loves the fact that she made the straps herself.  Her favourite is the beaded one which I think looks lovely too.
