June 17th is a day to celebrate dads all over the world! Of course it is Father’s Day! Both of my children will enjoy creating their own Father’s Day cards, this is something we have always done and it’s so much more personal and meaningful. My husband is a great dad to our children and what better way to spoil him than with the latest and greatest products!
Here I have put together a Father’s Day Gift Guide to help you buy the perfect gift for dad!
First off we have the dash cam! All dads love to express their opinions when driving so what better way to back them up than by gifting them a top of the range dash cam! This is the Nextbase 312GW Dash Cam. Nextbase is the market leader in Dash Cams in the UK. Did you know, dash cams are now outselling SatNavs! They provide peace of mind and concrete evidence to liability in the event of an incident.
The Nextbase 312GW features a unique Click and Go mount providing easy installation. The picture quality is superb, recording in 1080 HD at 30fps. It has a Six-Element Sharp lense made with 6 layers of glass ensuring stunning clear images.
The Nextbase 312GW comes with a mount, usb cable, in car charger and software.
I am not very technical and I was dreading setting this up however even I managed to do this successfully, it really is so simple, just plug in a go. The 312GW (RRP £99/99) also features built in Wi-Fi which can be used with an app based on your smart phone or you can also use your computer. The app makes it so easy to view, download and manage your recordings. Plus I have also found it makes a great security camera for watching over our cars at night. The Nextbase 312GW is currently on offer at £79 – the lowest price ever! It is available on every retailer. As the bestselling dash cam in the UK, the 312GW represents 20% of all Dash Cams sold!
Next up we have the totally awesome Retro Go Joystick from MenKind. RRP £14.99. This handheld device simply plugs into your television and enables you access to 200 arcade-era games! It’s incredibly easy to set up, just plug in and go.
The controller itself is very small however it is so easy to use and you really don’t notice this when you are in game mode.
I will say it is a bit of a guessing game as to how you are supposed to play each game as there are no instructions on what to do however most are quite simple.
The Retro Go Joystick features full on 8-bit 70s arcade machine style. This awesome little device is compatible with PAL television displays. It is designed to play with ease and lets your get straight into the action, no messing around with any type of set up. All you need to do is install 3 AAA batteries. It’s so nifty in fact that you could even bring it on your travels with you, if you can spare some time off it for your little ones to have a go that is!
The Retro Go Joystick would make a great gift for all those retro cool dads out there!
As we all know beards are the in thing at the moment. So why not treat your dad to the Panasonic ER-GB80 Multi Groomer. Style and design your beard, body and hair. This is a high performance trimmer for great styling.
It can be used cordless for on the go or with the cord connected for quick use whilst charging.

This is the Bird and Wild Coffee. Doesn’t it sound wonderful! Bird & Wild is a sustainable, eco-friendly coffee that gives back to charity for dads with an environmental conscience.
Bird & Wild coffee is Fairtrade, Organic, Bird Friendly and Shade Grown. As the RSPB’s official coffee, 6% of all sales are donated back to them to help them to protect wildlife, restore our woodlands and build a future where we live in harmony with nature. Available in two delicious flavours, the Seasonal Blend is medium roasted to perfection for a smooth coffee with dark chocolate tones, balanced acidity and bright floral aromas. The medium dark Espresso Blend is expertly roasted to produce a well-balanced tang of cocoa and fruit within a dark, creamy body that makes it ideal for espresso and milky drinks.
The flavours taste fantastic and much more fragrant than our usual coffee which is just wonderful. Its smooth and easy to drink, it really is delightful! Plus I have to say I love the design on the packaging!
Bird Friendly Certification guarantees that every bean is produced organically and under high-quality shade, ensuring tropical ‘agroforests’ are preserved and migratory birds find a healthy haven when they travel from northern climes to faraway farms producing the beans. With wildspread clear cutting for sun coffee plantations, it’s imperative to protect the tropical forest that remains and help to rehabilitate degraded ecosystems. Every cup of Bird Friendly coffee you drink encourages more farmers to grow in the shade, which is good for birds and people.
Both packs are 200g and retail at £4.99. Stockists include Bird & Wild, Amazon and Ocado.
