Since this weekend it is Father’s Day here in The Netherlands, it is about time to figure out already what to get our dads this year. As usual I am pretty much late with getting my dad something, and because this weekend it is my husband’s birthday too, I totally forgot to get my dad something. He already is a tough one to get presents for as it is. He prefers us ‘kids’ to just be at our parents’ place on days like that instead of bringing gifts. But since I am already looking for guy presents, hence the husband’s birthday, I really wanted to share some of my picks with you for some extra inspiration.
First up: selecting a place where I can find multiple gifts at a time, because gift shopping; ain’t nobody got time for that! Especially when you are like me and working 5 days a week and really wanting to sleep for days on the weekends. So I actually found some diverse gifst at Primera where you can even order online (so more time to sleep in on the weekend!). When looking for a gift I try to come up with something original but still personal. My dad is an old inland shipping captain, but buying him a new boat is pretty much out of budget. I know that he loves to read, especially history books or anything with boats will work. Also, chocolate is a winner to buy, aswell as some buttery Scottish cake.
So far the search for my old man ;) Now up to a good birthday gift for the other love of my life, my husband. Who isn’t a dad yet btw, and no there isn’t a bun in the oven yet. But it is good to know that I can find a couple of personal gifts for him too since his birthday is so close to father’s day. Fortunately I have a great cook for a husband so a couple of new oven gloves are always welcome. I also really love the engraved beer and wine glasses, but we already have so much glasses it is insane. Though, it is a great gift idea!
I think the most important thing to keep in mind when you are shopping for your dad, husband or even brother or friend is to keep it personal. When you’ve put a lot of thought in a gift, people will love it no matter what. Thinking about someone means a lot. And even if you can’t figure it out right away: go for a nice card with some sweet words and a box of chocolates!

I really like the quote ‘To keep it personal’. That’s how it’s supposed to be! Nice blog.
Handig artikel, ik vind het vaak zo lastig om iets te kopen voor een man :P
Ik heb je tips opgevolgd en mijn vader was er erg blij mee. Thanks!
