Gifts For Daddy. Father’s Day 2018

Dads have numerous roles in our lives from the obvious such as teacher, taxi driver, fixer of broken things, breaker of unbroken things, to the less obvious but pretty hilarious including spider catcher, professional farter, embarrassing dancer, terrible joker, the list is endless.

Gifts for dads can take a lot of thought.  I know when I buy items I like to make sure that I put thought into it to make sure the gift is appropriate for the recipient and not just anything that I can get my hands on which fits within an acceptable price bracket.

I want my children to become thoughtful gifters, so I like to take them along to have a look around shops and see what they can find that is suitable for whoever we are buying for.  Now with Father’s Day on the 17th of this month of course the hunt is on for gifts for daddy.  Daddy isn’t always easy to buy for but we were looking for little gifts where it’s more the thought that counts as the goodies were from the kids.

Our local Scribbler was well stocked with hundreds of cards and also numerous goodies that looked perfect for dad whether your looking for a serious gift like gourmet popcorn (omg yes!!!), a hilarious gift such as a fart in a jar – don’t look at me, kids seem amused by this sort of thing, a fun gift like a pocket retro game (great for playing on the toilet when they take hours doing a number two – yes they all do it), or something practical like a reusable coffee cup to use on the go.  For anyone thinking yes!!!! these are fabulous ideas I will go online to grab some – the gifts are only currently available in store – I checked!

Now kids don’t quite appreciate humour like an adult does but they apparently really do love reading card and looking at the pictures.  Even my 3 year old gets involved and finds all sorts of things funny which is super cute.

Our selection For Father’s Day Cards

Our Gift Choices

Spicy Popcorn

We all love popcorn and this one stands out with a combination of smooth caramel, Madras curry, herbs and spices, lime and black onion seed.  What I am waiting to see is how much dad / hubby will actually get to try when he gets his gift as I know the kids and I will be diving in.  The flavours sound unusual but could actually work really well.

Unicorn Poo

What can I say!  The kids of course are not going to walk through any shop and not see anything with this label on it.  Unicorn poo or as an adult will know them as ‘Jazzies’ of course yell out from the shelves – COME GET ME!!!!  You KNOW YOU WANT TO.  Clearly this works.  Plus lets not forget, it’s chocolate and all dads love chocolate!

A Father’s Day Mug

Of course no Father’s Day is complete without the obligatory mug.  Be warned options are numerous.  It’s going to take you a while to decide which to get.

For those that do get to visit a Scribbler store for Father’s Day goodies I suggest you allow plenty of time to read the cards and mugs they have some hilarious ones to choose from that dads are bound to love.

Are you getting your dad / father in law etc. a few smaller gifts or a big one this year?
