Our Picks of Stylish Father's Day Gifts

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

It's June! Can you believe we are nearly half way through 2015?  June is a wonderful month, not only is it the start of summer but we also celebrate the men in our lives.  Like most fathers and daughters, my dad and I have a special bond, and I treasure it each and every day.  But let's be honest, men are a nightmare to buy for even if they have a hobby.  At Eat Sleep Live we understand the gift buying challenge and therefore have put together a selection of stylish gifts for Father's Day.

Why is it that when a man is feeling under the weather with the common cold they try to tell us that it's 10 times worse than when a woman gets it.  We shouldn't mock the afflicted, so treat them to a hot water bottle that will make them feel on top of the world again! [caption id="attachment_5501" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Dapper Chap Hot Water Bottle, The Gift Oasis £7.79 Dapper Chap Hot Water Bottle, The Gift Oasis £7.79[/caption] This years sees the release of a brand new Star Wars film, as we wait in complete anticipation give a gift that is from another planet.  Should you have a Sci-Fi Chief, he will love this knife block as he will be doing his part to help the resistance by hopping in a an X-Wing and heading straight to the Death Star. [caption id="attachment_5497" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block, Pink Sumo £64.99 Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block, Pink Sumo £64.99[/caption] There has been a distinct growing trend of allowing your man to have a Man Cave, a place where they can explore their hobbies, fill with gadgets and decorate just the way they want - well within reason.  When you search the internet you can find some absolutely incredible designs, even the humble garden shed is being transformed.  Although sometimes we wish we knew exactly what they get up to in there, I think this sign says it all. [caption id="attachment_5500" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Man Cave Plaque, The Contemporary Home £9.00 Man Cave Plaque, The Contemporary Home £9.00[/caption] I am secretly told than often games are played within the Man Cave, whether it be electronic, vintage such as pac-man and pin ball or card games.  This beautifully painted wooden box containing playing cards, dice and dominoes would bring a touch of class to any cave.  What's more it is perfect for traveling as the box is compact and packs everything away. [caption id="attachment_5499" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Wooden Games Box, Swanky Maison £24.99 Wooden Games Box, Swanky Maison £24.99[/caption] Perfect for a man cave or study, should he be a Rugby enthusiast, is this unusual and striking Silver Rugby Ball Book Ends.  You know they will take will take pride of place on their book shelf and remind them of many happy times spent on the pitch every time they pull a favourite book from between them. [caption id="attachment_5503" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Silver Rugby Ball Book Ends, Whisk Hampers £69.50 Silver Rugby Ball Book Ends, Whisk Hampers £69.50[/caption] Bookends may not seem the most exciting of gifts, but should they be an enthusiast of the inspiration of the design they will treasure it.  Take this air of fabulous red sports car bookends, a classic car fan will be sure to take the utmost care of this accessory as though it was the real thing. [caption id="attachment_5495" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Car Bookends, Hoi Polloi £49.99 Car Bookends, Hoi Polloi £49.99[/caption] These bookends are a great decorative piece, and you know your Father would love to express their personality for their home with the occasional piece.  If I suggested you give a clock as a gift, I know you would probably think - boring!  But think again, this metal fan design has an air of vintage aviation about it.  A chic piece for today's stylish father. [caption id="attachment_5498" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Metal Fan Wall Clock, PUJI £54.00 Metal Fan Wall Clock, PUJI £54.00[/caption] From planes to cars, but this time instead of a fan the inspiration is of a steering wheel.  Wouldn't it look perfect on a desk at home or in the office? [caption id="attachment_5496" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Nickel Steering Wheel Standing Clock, Hoi Polloi £59.99 Nickel Steering Wheel Standing Clock, Hoi Polloi £59.99[/caption] Remember that classic 80's John Hughes film, Planes, Trains and Automobiles?  Well I can't offer you a train but I can give you a boat.  Just as we like to decorate shelves with beautiful vases and ornaments, so do our men, but with more masculine looking pieces such as this Classic English sailing yacht.  Lovely nautical interior decor item for his office or holiday home, the stitched dark cream sails really add a realistic feel. [caption id="attachment_5502" align="aligncenter" width="413"]Classic English Sailing Boat Model, The Nautical Company £49.95 Classic English Sailing Boat Model, The Nautical Company £49.95[/caption] Jurrasic Park this isn't, but in a strange way I kind of like this huge intriguing extra large decorative T-Rex.  One thing is for sure, it will be a wow feature in any room it inhabits.  It really looks like a museum piece, but we have to warn you, Please be warned we can't be sure if it comes alive at night or not! [caption id="attachment_5493" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Huge Dinosaur Ornament, Alexander & Pearl £350.00 Huge Dinosaur Ornament, Alexander & Pearl £350.00[/caption] No matter what you treat the dad's in your life to this Father's day, you know they will love it as it has come from you with love.
