Father’s Day is fast approaching again on the 16th June and if you haven’t yet decided what you fancy buying then here’s a few ideas!

The Cards

Anyone who reads my blog knows I have a silly, naughty sense of humour so these cards from Love Layla are spot on. Love Layla is a family run business who make cards ranging from clean, risque and downright naughty in lots of categories from Dad’s, Stepdad’s, Mum’s who have also been your Dad, the man who stepped in for you and even Grandad’s there really is something for everyone. There are even matching badges, balloons, wrapping paper and wine labels. As I have a Dad and a Step Dad these were the cards I chose for them and I think they’re hilarious.
