Oh no! It’s Father’s Day this coming weekend and I haven’t thought about what to get the husband from the girls. Men are notoriously difficult to buy for and my husband fits in well with the stereotype.
I feel like he already has everything he needs so I have to look at things he wants. Trouble is he has specialist hobbies and I don’t know where to start. But here’s my thoughts so far….
My fallback is always some sort of DVDs. He’s into action or superhero genre so something along the lines of Marvel would be a good choice. Unfortunately I think we have everything that’s come out so far – if only Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 was out!
Instead I might have to go for TV box sets instead. I’m thinking maybe Game of Thrones box set? I’m not sure what series he’s up to by now but I’m almost certain he hasn’t got any of them on DVD.
He’s very much into branded clothing and for Christmas I gave him some Superdry hoodies. I don’t think he needs any new ones. Instead I possibly could get him some t-shirts. There are some awesome superhero themed shirts out there – including this one! I think I might have already bought this for him last year.
Of course I’m buying him things on behalf of the girls but at the moment they’re slightly too young to buy something for themselves. I could however drag the eldest around the shops looking for more cutesy things to include.
Siop Eluned in Pwllheli has some lovely things including coasters, signs etc all saying “Dad Gorau Yn Y Byd” (Best Dad in the World). I’m thinking of buying the “Cwrw Taid” (Grandad’s Beer) sign for my Dad from them.
Games Workshop Stuff
This is the specialist hobby I was talking about – bloomin Games Workshop toy soldiers! There is really no point me getting him any sort of model because he’ll only trade it in. So I’m thinking a gift card instead. This is the most unimaginative thing ever I know but at least he’ll use it!!
So tell me, what are you getting your Dad? Or Dad’s what would you love for Father’s Day?
