Fathers Day Personalised Gift Guide


Fathers Day Personalised Gift Guide

Father’s Day is fast approaching and everyone is looking for special gifts to give to their dad just to show them how much they love him.

For me, it’s a sad time because I lost my wonderful dad many years ago but I still think about him every day. When he was alive I could never find a present for him and he always ended up with boring, practical things. Then, after he died, everywhere I went there were things that I just knew he would love.

So, it isn’t always a happy day, because sometimes the one person we would like to share it with….isn’t here.

When I Just Love It approached me to do a Father’s Day Gift post I was in two minds whether to accept. However, my husband has been such a great dad to our daughter, so I decided to hand over the reins to her just for today.


Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Firstly, we take a look at some other Fathers Day gift ideas.

Then my daughter gives an honest review of the toolbox which was gifted to us.


This gift box looks really expensive and the personalised wine bottle makes this a truly bespoke gift. As well as the wine, there are 16 scrumptious truffles all beautifully packaged in a satin lined gift box. There is a selection of red, white or rose wine.

This isn’t just a compass, it’s a paperweight too and it can be personalised with any engraving. It is elegantly presented in a beautiful mahogany wooden case and would look stylish on a desk or tucked into a rucksack.


This photo frame took my breath away. It is made of oak veneer and can be personalised with any message up to  40 characters. It holds a photograph measuring 6″ by 4″ and can be used in a landscape or portrait position. Just right to capture those special memories.


Personalised Tool Box Product Review

The toolbox arrived in a substantial box with plenty of quality bubble wrap. It did strike me that the box was extremely lightweight for hardwood but the top quality brass fittings reassured me that the toolbox was extremely well made.

The engraving was also excellent quality and didn’t look like it would wear away. The details were precisely what I asked for and the lettering was clear. I think the engraving is a lovely way to make a gift really personal.

You can see from the photographs below that the tool kit is exactly as shown on the website.

There are two sizes to choose from.

This will be a surprise gift for Father’s Day.  I have ordered a chocolate tool set to put inside just to make the gift extra special. It’s a bit of a running joke in our family, when anything goes wrong we automatically ‘Ask Dad!.’ He might sigh but you can always count on him to turn up soon after with his trusty (and rusty) tool kit!

I’m sure my dad will be blown away with this gift. I usually buy him a card and a jumper so this will be a real surprise. My mum will be glad that screwdrivers and nails can be put in a tidy place too.

I couldn’t think of a nicer way to say “Thank You Dad” and also “Is there anything you can do about my leaky tap?”




I will update this post when I see dads reaction. He is a DIY enthusiast so I will ask for his opinion on the durability and practicality of the toolbox.


With thanks to I Just Love It and thank you for reading.
