I’ve been writing quite a bit about the perfect gifts for dad’s for this upcoming Father’s Day. I’ve looked at photographic books and experience gift packages, and now I’m moving on to ideas for dad’s that also happen to be major football fans. If you’re dad is football crazy, you could create a gift idea that would suit him just down to the ground with Personalised Gift Solutions.
Personalised Gift Solutions are a small family company from Southampton who decided to take some of the work out of finding presents. They have created a wonderful blend of unique gifts that are also totally personal. The jewel in the crown in the Personalised Gift Solution range is Mybestmatchever.com, a range of gifts that are inspired by those football matches that linger long in the memory – the FA cup wins, the miraculous comebacks, the giant killings – all these are celebrated in a range of mugs, t-shirts, mobile phone cases, hoodies and sweatshirts. There are products available for all the Premiership teams, along with selected Championship, International and Scottish teams.
My dad is a lifelong, season ticket holder at West Bromwich Albion and loves anything football related, especially if it is also related to the Baggies. I loved the idea of gifting him one of the ‘My Best Match’ t-shirts, and was spoiled for choice with the matches available. Did I go for the 1970s classic 3-5 win at Old Trafford? Or how about the stunning last match of Alex Ferguson’s managerial career – the 5-5 at The Hawthorns? Both were amazing, memorable matches, but winning the FA Cup would be hard to top, so I went for the 1-0 win against Everton in the 1968 FA Cup final, all the more special as I know my 14 year old dad was there that day. (Astle is king – fact!)
This is a great present, the details of the match are emblazoned on a ‘wonky scoreboard’ and the t-shirt itself is white, crisp cotton that is already 100% preshrunk so it won’t shrink again in the wash. It has a stark, minimalist feel – perfect for my dad who thinks a small pattern is ‘going a bit too far’, and I know that this is something that will both please him, and something that he will actually wear – a total result if you pardon the pun.
All orders for Fathers Day that are place on or before June 15th are guaranteed to be dispatched in time. If you want to order after this date, you can email CustomerCare@PersonalisedGiftSolutions.co.uk for help and advice.
