What would your 8 year old choose for Father’s Day? How much do your kids play a part in picking a Father’s Day gift? I would say that I’m 50/50 when it comes to letting kids pick. I only say this as there was a bit of a showdown in a jewellery shop when our eldest was small. He wanted to buy the most awful gold football necklace that was horrendously tacky but also cost a fortune. I knew that Chris wouldn’t have chosen it in a million years so let’s say I used the power of gentle pursuasion to guide them to something a little bit more ‘Chris’.
We always make handmade cards which can be as elaborate and covered in a thousand stickers and glitter as they want.
Let them think it was their idea and jobs a good un!
However, we’ve teamed up with The Personalised Gift Shop and given Isabelle free reign to choose the perfect Father’s Day Gift for Daddy.
7 Best Sellers
Here are the seven most popular items bought for Father’s Day from the Personalised Gift Shop Range.
A Personalised Father’s Day Black Hip Flask – £11.99
A Personalised Happy Father’s Day Whiskey Tumbler – £9.99
Personalised Father’s Day Glass Keepsake – £19.99
Engraved Cut Crystal Whiskey Tumbler – £13.99
All of these are lovely gifts, and out of these I would say that Isabelle would choose the personalised photo cushion covered with pictures of herself.
What did Isabelle Choose?
I decided to give Isabelle total control when choosing her Father’s Day Gift this year with absolutely no subtle hints or gentle persuasion. I thought she would definitely choose something photo related. Any excuse to have things with her picture on it BUT I was wrong.
What she actually chose was this Personalised Retro Sweet Jar (£14.99) which to be fair is quite a good choice. Daddy likes sweets and tries (and fails) to have a hidden stash for late at night when he gets the munchies. He also likes to keep a stash in the car for when he’s driving and this jar is full of his favourites.
It took her quite a while to choose since the range is quite big but I think she chose well.
The Personalised Gift Shop has a wide range of gifts for all occasions including Wedding’s, Birthdays and the arrival of a New Baby with options to suit all budgets and tastes.
