Father's Day Gift Guide 2019

*All of the items in this guide were sent to me in return for coverage within this guide, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

With Father's Day just over a week away, it's time to start getting those gift ideas ready for the special men in our lives if you've not already. If you're looking for a gift for your significant other from the children, your own dad, your stepdad, grandad, or a father figure, then look no further as this guide is packed full of items to please dads of all kinds on all kinds of budgets. From personalised items that show that special touch, to unique and quirky cards, there's something for everyone in this guide.

I think it's important that we all know the special men in our lives don't need to be lavished with gifts and cards to be shown how much they mean to us, and whilst these gift ideas may work for some, I get that they may not work for all. I know my dad will be happy enough to just see all his children and grandchildren on Father's Day, and the gifts we gift are just extra's, as he tells us all the time we are the only presents he needs.

Everything You Need To Know About Hidradenitis Suppurativa

I've briefly mentioned on the blog before about living with two chronic skin diseases - Psoriasis and Hidradenitis Suppurativa (also known as HS for short), the latter being a disease I have only just learnt how to pronounce properly, and one I still can't spell without the internet's help. I've had psoriasis since I was a teenager and developed HS when I was a young adult, however I was only officially diagnosed with HS around two years ago.


Whilst lots of people may know, or at least heard of psoriasis, Hidradenitis Suppurativa isn't very well known at all, and that's amongst the medical community too. It was only a few weeks ago I thought I was going to be admitted to hospital for another emergency operation, instead I went to my local walk-in clinic and explained to the doctors there what I had - as they, like many other medical professionals, including dermatologist are unaware of the condition. 

Childcare.co.uk - A Review.

When it comes to finding childcare, it's something that many parent's find difficult for a number of reasons. It could be that you've received at least three personal recommendations of amazing placements/minders/sitters, or it could be that you need one that's available with spaces ASAP, or maybe you don't want to enter a contract because your future commitments aren't certain so you need childcare on an ad-hoc basis.

Maybe your child has SEN or other need's, and you feel like their current school isn't meeting their needs so you need to look for a new school. Or you could be a home-schooler parent like me, and maybe you just need a tutor to come in once a week, where do you start with finding the right people for the right job? After all, our children are our everything, and we need qualified professionals with the right checks to let them near our children.

The Stigma Teenage Mothers and Young Mothers Face.

If you've been a reader of Unique Young Mum for a while, or if you've ever visited before, then chances are you know already that I had my son when I was 15, a month before my 16th birthday. Although I'm not a teenage mum any more, or a young mum, I am a young mum to have a 13-year-old child.

Although I've got older, and I thought the stereotypical views and stigmas would stop, sadly, although they've got better, they still appear. I still get the judgemental looks when people do the math and realise how young I was when I had my son. The looks of disgust when they realise I have a teenager and I'm not even 30 yet. 

Win A £50 Amazon Voucher For Father's Day.

Father's Day is that one time of the year when we can give an extra special thanks to the dad's in our lives. This year, the UK celebrates Father's Day on June 16th 2019, and I have a Father's Day feature planned for my readers, including a few competitions, and a gift guide too.

Though we like to think we appreciate the special men in our lives all year round, sometimes its easier said than done, which is why I'm personally thankful for the special dedicated day, to show my dad, my stepdad, Spud's dad, and Spud's stepdad just how much they mean to us.
