Father’s day gift ideas

The products in this gift guide have been gifted to us for free in return for inclusion.

I find it so hard to buy for Jordan and my dad they are the type of men that have everything they need. So I’m always on the lookout for new things I can gift to them. Or sometimes getting them the essentials they need so they don’t need to buy them themselves. Personally, I love these kinds of gifts as it means it’s one less thing for me to have to buy myself.

Mainline Menswear

Underwear is essential and I know it can be seen as a boring present but everyone needs it and sometimes it’s the everyday essentials that we just don’t get the time to go out and buy. So when it comes down to fathers day gift ideas boxers are the perfect gift.

So basically the Vex gift certificate ensures that there won’t be any more gift cards purchased that won’t be used. Or swapped between family members because it’s not a shop you normally buy from. We’ve all been there your nan buys you a gift card for a shop that you used to buy clothes from when you were 12 and you can no longer fit in their clothes.

You just simply head over to Voucher Express and purchase a VEX card. They then send the selected card in a gift wallet and envelope to the selected delivery address. The recipient then goes on the voucher express website and chooses the gift card for a certain store they would like to exchange it for. Their gift card of choice will then be sent to them within two working days.

I am for sure going to get a VEX card the next time I want to purchase a gift card for anyone. It gives the recipient so much more freedom to buy something they actually want or need. Rather than being stuck with one store of my choosing not their own.
