Ideas For Planning The Perfect Father’s Day

Do you ever find it difficult to shop for your boyfriend, husband, father or father in law? Even I find it hard, and I consider myself a shopping expert – a master buyer for those in need! But for the important men in my life, it’s not so easy. Every time I buy Scott a present, he always returns it! So I find myself looking to buy him experiences rather than physical things, and this way he can buy what he wants when he wants, and I can surprise him with things he doesn’t know he wants yet!

If you get stuck on what to buy men like I do, then here are some ideas to make buying presents a breeze! Debenhams has created the perfect area to shop for the special men in your life. They have teamed up with Activity Super Store so you can buy over 1,500 new experiences for your loved ones. You can see them all by clicking here.

Scott and I went go karting a few months back and he LOVED it – so much that he went back the week after with some work mates. Let’s just say most men love speed and competing, so this was right up his alley. You can get your 50 laps experience clicking here.

And it’s not only amazing experiences that you can shop for in this dedicated section, but you can also find little gifts while you are at it. I got him a lovely J by Jasper navy polo shirt and Wrangler regular fit jeans, as well as a whisky decanter and tumbler set. He loves Scotch whisky so he was stoked!

On the day we went go karting, we drove to Essex for the experience. We wanted to make a day out of it. I wore a Studio By Preen beige stripe detail trench coat, with a Studio By Preen bell sleeve knit jumper and Mango wool blend straight fit suit trousers.

I wanted to wear something that was casual and chic, so I finished the look with a pair of white sneakers.

    Experience presents are always a good one for guys, they can be so so hard to buy for! Looked like go karting was a lot of fun. I don’t think I have ever done it.

    You are so right when it comes to shopping for men in our lives. Experience is the way to go and go karting looks like a fun and cool experience. Love the trench coat.
