    How on earth are we in June already?

    This month is a bit of a mad one for me. I’ve got holidays and hen-dos, birthdays and parties and I’ve also got the one date in the calendar which I look at with mixed emotions: Father’s Day.

    I’m really lucky because I’ve had the privilege of having two dads in my life. My dad Graham, who has now sadly passed away, and also my incredible step-dad Mark, who has been a part of my life for the last 16 years.

    I think it’s so important to always mark Father’s Day – to celebrate the memory of my dad but also to give thanks for in the incredible relationship I have with my step-dad.

    SO, I’ve rounded up some great Father’s Day ideas so you can make the most of the day with your old man, whatever type of dad he might be!
    The Sporty Dad
    If your dad is sports mad, could you buy him tickets to a game? A rugby match that you could go to together or even just a kick around in the park with your brothers and sisters.

    Some of my best memories growing up revolve around the huge five-a-side games we used to have with my step-brothers and step-dad…I just won’t mention the time our cousin’s arm got broken.

    The Well-Groomed Dad
    If your dad is super sharp (or a bit dishevelled and you just want to drop a hint) you could treat him to some new grooming products.

    My boyfriend swears by his Braun beard trimmer which would make the ideal present for my step-dad. It comes with six different fittings depending on the look and style you want to achieve, plus it’s also so easy to use, you just charge it and it’s ready to go.
    Braun also has a great Wet and Dry Shaver if your dad is more clean-cut and prefers a traditional shave. It’s such a handy bit of kit as it cuts in straight lines, minimising irritation and can even go in the shower.

    The Dad No Longer Here
    It’s really easy to shy away from doing anything on Father’s Day when your dad is no longer here but I really do think it’s so important – and a big step in helping you come to terms with the loss.

    We mark Father’s Day for my dad by taking flowers to his grave, writing out a card and sharing stories to keep his memory alive.

    The Foodie Dad
    The best bit about any occasion like Father’s Day or Mother’s Day is getting to spend more time with your parents.

    You should never take for granted that little bit of quality time you spend together which is why I love buying experiences for people.

     If your dad is a big foodie, you could book to take him out to somewhere like The Soho Sanctum hotel, which offers a gent’s afternoon tea (serving scotch eggs and mini burgers rather than your traditional scones and sandwiches) or you could just get a date in the diary and cook for him. Make his favourite dinner and use the time to catch-up – little things like that often go down better than lavish nights out!

    I hope that’s given you some inspiration! Let me know how you’ll be celebrating Father’s Day with your dad this year. If you'd like to win a Braun Electric Shaver as a gift, enter the giveaway below
