*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.

Without further ado, in no particular order, here is Unique Young Mum's Father's Day Gift Guide 2019. I hope you enjoy the gifts as much as I've enjoyed carefully selecting which ones I think my readers and visitors would enjoy the best!
