Barbecue season is here and for many, there’s nothing better than heading out into the garden to enjoy an open-air feast with the family!

Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift can be difficult. While chocolate, socks and wine are some of the safest options, when it comes to picking a truly thoughtful gift, it’s good to be guided by the man himself. What are your dad’s passions? What are his interests? Does he have any hobbies? By asking yourself these questions, you’ll likely be guided to a topic around which you can form gift ideas. However, if you’re super stuck, one of the most common interests that most dads share is music! So, whether your dad was a Sex Pistols punk rocker or a Beatles super-fan, there’s a range of great Father’s Day gifts for music-loving dads: 
With the sun shining and the flowers in bloom, summer is the perfect time to let your children relish some time to themselves. Whether it’s throwing a garden tea party with their favourite toys, creating colourful collages made from interesting materials, or writing a summer journal that they can cherish forever, there are a large variety of fantastic activities for kids to enjoy during summertime. 
With a gorgeous bride and the most regal of grooms, the Royal Wedding was a truly stunning affair. However, while Harry and Meghan will have undoubtedly received some pretty amazing gifts, you may still be stuck for inspiration when it comes to choosing a wedding gift for your nearest and dearest.
