The Perfect Gift for Daddy

I’ve mentioned before that I find men extremely difficult to buy for, and that Spencer is particularly difficult. We don’t have a big budget and he doesn’t just want ‘things’. I love trinkets and pretty little things but if it isn’t functional Spencer isn’t interested, referring to my trinkets as tat. He has a tendency to think that money grows on trees and will purchase the things that he wants as and when throughout the year. Making gift buying extremely difficult.

I’ve now resorted to buying him edible gifts. He isn’t a big drinker but he loves his port at Christmas time, and in similar style to my own father, he will go through a whole bottle in one day. Which leaves me thinking that while it was an appreciated present, it was maybe a bit of a waste as it’s gone in a day, leaving him with no presents to show come Boxing Day.

I guess my conundrum was that I wanted a gift that he would appreciate, but I didn’t want to just buy any old throwaway present from Aria, I wanted something special, something personal. Eventually I discovered GiftsOnline4U, the home of a huge selection of personalised gifts and my problems were solved.

When I saw the personalised Port I knew that it was the one. The gift of all gifts. A gift that he will actually appreciate and enjoy. A personal, special gift. This special fine ruby port comes personalised with an exclusive pewter label in the shape of a shield with an embossed design and it looks fabulous! The message is engraved onto the pewter plaque using a diamond cutter and it is recommended that you have a maximum of 70 characters spread over five lines for best results.

Yes, it is port. Yes, he will drink it all in a day. But, he will really appreciate it (maybe he’ll even crack a smile!) and when he is done I can wash the bottle out, pop a candle in it and keep it forever more.

GiftsOnline4U stock a very wide range of bespoke gifts for every special occasion, specialising in personalised champagne gifts and other personalised alcohol options, they engrave in house meaning that they are able to offer engraved gifts such as their extensive engraved pocket watch selection.

Port is not the only perfect gift that they sell, I would personally love to receive the Taittinger Champagne Gift Set with Ferrero Rocher Heart, I would savour every single sip and every single bite! The personalised chocolate bars would make for the most perfect children’s stocking fillers as would their personalised pencil cases and crayons.

There is still plenty of time for Christmas delivery, you have right up until 1pm on Thursday 21st December, so if you are struggling for the perfect, personal gift this Christmas be sure to check out GiftsOnline4U, and while you’re there, pick up the engraved pendant twisting heart design for me!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Men

I don’t know about you, but I always find men the hardest to buy for. I’m not a man, I don’t like ‘manly’ things and I don’t know much about being a man. I usually fall back on a mug and a pair of socks, but I’ve been super inspired this year and have found plenty more ideas!
