Derby Shoes: H&M | Armani Diamonds: Boots | Leather Belt: H&M | 'White Musk' Fragrance Kit: Body Shop | Linen Shirt: Burton | Personalised Cookie: Millies Cookies | Babyliss Grooming System: Debenhams
So last week, the St Enoch Centre in Glasgow got in touch to ask if I'd like to do some Father's Day shopping in the centre. I don't know if it's just me, but I find my dad is impossible to buy for. I always made the mistake of trying to think of something 'different' when shopping for my dad and avoided the cliche gift ideas like aftershave, but over the past few years, I've realised that the cliche gift ideas are the things that I already know he likes and the things that can't go wrong. Who'd have known it would be so simple?
Today I thought I'd show you some of the gifts I looked at, and what I ended up picking. I love this men's fragrance kit from the Body Shop - I don't normally like 'white musk' scents but this is just heavenly. I knew because I'd bought it for Andy a while ago and still always comment on it whenever he wears it. I also looked at this Armani Diamonds aftershave which is on offer at £29.99 - it's still over £50 in most other places! As a smaller gift, I love the personalised cookies from Millies - although it's definitely one of those 'please share this with me' gifts. And I doubt I'd even have the self discipline to hand it over. Which could be awkward.
Oh, and how gorgeous are these grey suede shoes from H&M? I love the colour and I think they look much more expensive than they are. In the end, I picked up this light blue linen shirt from Burton and a couple of casual polo shirts which were a total bargain. Even if someone is notoriously hard to buy for, you can never go wrong with casual basics and the quality of these is excellent too.
What do you think of these gift ideas?
