Handmade Gift Ideas For Father’s Day

Aren’t Dad’s the hardest people to buy for?! My sister and I have decided to get our Dad the cookies below for Father’s Day, because he loves lary socks! I also got him an awesome pair of socks from Craftacular last month.

Handmade Accessories Gift Guide

Wasn’t last week’s Black Friday madness in the UK supermarkets a bit uncharacteristic of the usual polite British public?! Aren’t we supposed to love queueing? Personally, I love to do my Christmas shopping online as it really makes things a whole lot easier and I can avoid the crowds and rude people!

In the second of my Christmas gift guides, I’ve picked some of the best handmade accessories from Etsy and Not On The High Street.

The next Christmas gift guide is for cat lovers! I know there are tons of you out there and it gives me an excuse to indulge my crazy cat lady streak when hunting out some goodies.

Happy shopping!

Handmade Gifts for Grandads

My Grandfathers are both pretty spectacular. One is 97 years old and is highly competitive at Dominoes and the other is an ex-ballroom dancer who I feel I inherit my positive (read silly) mindset from. Recently the latter celebrated his birthday and it got me thinking about handmade gifts for Grandads. Is it just me or are they pretty hard to buy for?!

I had a look on Etsy and Not On The High Street and thought I’d share some of the lovely handmade gift ideas I found. Not his birthday for a while? Bookmark them for later like I do on my Gift Ideas Pinterest board!

Joanna at Adventures and Tea Parties asked me to review her personalised hankies in a little more detail for you.

Each hankerchief comes beautifully packaged and is made from your choice of fabric. I love the personalised aspect as you can choose any phrase/word to be embroidered in the neatest stitches. Grandad’s love a big hanky don’t they?!

The items from Joanna’s store are beautifully packaged, but I couldn’t help but feel the box was slightly too big for the hanky as it was mostly packaging. But then I had the idea of adding a miniature whisky to the box as my Grandad loves a tipple, so it all worked out nicely!

Do you have any gift ideas for Grandads or the hard to buy for men in your life?

Toodles!
