Father’s Day Gifts From Morrisons

Let’s be honest.  Whilst it would be great to have the time to shop for that unique and personalised Father’s Day gift, in reality it’s a quick dash to the shops the day before for a bottle of plonk and a card (or in my dad’s case, his passion, chocolate ginger).

Whilst Caitlin was in ballet practising for her Grade 1 in July and the Husband was happily ensconced in the nearest pub, The Plum Tree, Ieuan and I snuck off to our local Morrisons to see if we could come up with some gifts Mat would like.

Our Morrison’s Father’s Day Haul

We had hoped to get our hands on a large Dad cookie (£5) which are baked fresh and personalised in store but the Cardiff Bay store was very quiet and we were told that it would take anywhere between 20 and 45 minutes to prepare.  Since we were short of time we decided to try something else.

Now that’s a cookie.

There was a small section dedicated to Father’s Day gifts but it contained everything we needed, or at least the necessary prompts – confectionery, alcohol, mugs and glasses, cards and shaving gear nestled next to DVDs and books.

Ignoring Ieuan’s assertion that “he urgently needed to look at the toys”,  I selected the following gifts – just right for sharing of course.

Thornton’s Milk Chocolate Beer Mug – £3

Maynard’s Wine Gums – £2
Superman Mug & Coaster Set – £4

Father’s Day Glass – £2.50
Selection of World Lagers – £5

Iron Maiden Beer & Glass – £5

I found the prices to be very reasonable and there is certainly something for every budget. I would say though that, at least in the Cardiff Bay store, stocks were quite low so you may need to visit sooner rather than later.  We have secreted our purchases at home to share between Mat and my dad (no, not the Iron Maiden beer). And, if we have time, we’ll be back for a cookie!

Note though, that not all of these are available on line so you may need to visit in person and employ your usual strategies to combat demands from your children. My favourite is “mummy hasn’t got her hearing aids in so she can’t hear you I’m afraid”.  Works a treat.
