I love sitting with Dad and listening to him tell me about his life.  When he was a boy, when he was working and when we were all growing up.  Lots of wonderful memories.  This gift is so special for these.  A Journal of a Lifetime has 60 page of prompts asking Dad to tell about his life.  You give Dad this journal, he completes it with his life memories and then gives it back to you.  Such a wonderful idea.

These are from the brilliant shop from you to me.  The journals are available for Grandad too and lots of other names for Dad.  They can be personalised.  Also available are other journals and notebooks perfect for Fathers Day.  Definitely worth a look.

If you have a dad who loves feeding the birds then Wiggly Wigglers have some great Fathers Day gifts for you.  They have a wide range of feeders and specialise in British grown bird seed which is perfect for our garden birds.  But, if he isn’t into birds then Wiggly Wigglers have lots of other gift suggestions like a hedgehog home (I want one of them!), useful and unusual garden items, and some great goat socks!

Please be aware. All opinions in this blog post are mine. At the time of writing I have not received any payment or free samples from the shops mentioned. Though I mention lots of shops here, you must form your own opinion as to whether their products are for you and whether to shop with them.  Some shops mentioned may be members of Love Our Shops UK.  In which case a membership fee may have been paid to be a member.

I aim to include only independently owned shops.  Sometimes it is tricky to work out if they are.  So, as far as I can tell, they are independently owned, but apologies if the odd one that is not slips into my blog post….they hide it well!
