Father's Day Special Gift: Creating a Daddy's Den



“Hello Everyone. This is Lisa Jolan. Many thanks to the pretty ladies Jessica and Hilary for allowing me to contribute to their blog and I am feeling so glad for being part of this wonderful place especially for Father’s Day. I have shared just an idea for the day. I believe you people are more creative than me. But whatever you choose to do, do show your love and gratitude for your dad, not just on the day but always, because the level of sincerity he has for you, nobody else can have for you in the world and the sacrifices he can give for you, nobody else in the world can give for you. (I think an emotional speech is coming out there.)
Anyways, don’t forget to share your ideas, personal experiences and any good memories in the comments box. I’d love to talk to you. I can be reached at Facebook. Cheers. ”



Say No! to Socks and Aftershave
Father's Day is almost upon us (where has this year gone?) so let's think outside the box a little this year, and really surprise the father with something extra special – creating a Daddy’s den!

Daddy den, man cave, home office, parent retreat - call it what you like, but the concept is the same. It's a special area of the house that Dad can call his own. If your home is big enough, it may be an entire room! Perhaps you have a spare bedroom that can be cleaned out and set up. This would be the ideal option, but even a corner of the living room will serve the same purpose.

So What Do We Put in a Daddy Den?
Storage is a must. The father involved will no doubt have a variety of things strewn over the house, in the bedroom, on the kitchen bench, in the garage etc. With a good storage solution in his special area, he can keep all of this stuff close at hand.

If the father being spoiled here is remotely organised, he may enjoy having some kind of filing cabinet in his space. Even if he isn't organised, it will still look very masculine and important - so why not track down a simple 1 or 2 draw filing cabinet. In the worst case scenario, he can keep magazines in it, and the top can be used to place photos or other knick knacks.

The centre piece of a great Daddy Den should be an amazing chair. Don't underestimate how much your Dad will love this. Try to save most of your budget for this 'throne' and spare no expense. A 30 quid office chair from the local office supplies store just won't do. Check out the recliner chairs at shop4furniture website to help brainstorm a great seating option. This is the thing, I think, all dads out there would love to have in their dens.

What is the Theme of Your Daddy Den?
This is where you need to sit down and consider what your Dad loves doing in his spare time. Perhaps he loves sports, so you could frame some sports memorabilia and hang it around the space. If he is a gamer, perhaps consider buying a cheap 32" LCD screen, and move his gaming consoles from the living room to his new area.
What If My Budget is Limited?
If the den is being planned for your husband and father to your kids, and the budget is limited, then don't lose hope. Here are some cheap and easy ways to create a unique space on a budget.

1. Move all of his existing clutter and personal items to the new space, and set them up in an attractive manner.
3. Print and frame some nice photos of the family, and hang them around the area. This can be done very inexpensively. Just go to Snap Fish, introduce some nice effects or embellishments to the photos, when done, order online, it looks fantastic! They also have introduced discount offers for Father’s Day, means more savings!

Go and Get Started!
Father's Day is coming soon, so get started as soon as you can. With some careful planning and a bit of stealthy work when Dad isn't around, you can really knock his socks off this year!
