#HANGOUTWITHDAD

I’m sure all you ladies will agree that Dad’s are simply the trickiest people to find gifts for! Whether you’re looking for your own Dad, or a gift from your kids to Daddy, with Father’s Day approaching fast the B.LOVED team have been on the hunt for something a little different to say thanks to our Dad’s this year.

My own personal search usually ends up with me scouring notonthehighstreet.com for a unique gift idea, but this year I really wanted something more than another pair of personalised socks! And that’s exactly what I’ve found. This Father’s Day the clever people at NOTHS have teamed up with Little Troopers, to launch their #hangoutwithdad campaign – realising that more than anything Dad’s just want to spend quality time with their cherished children, no matter what their age!

Their huge selection of Father’s Day experience gifts are the perfect treat for dad – creating moments and special memories, offering parents and children a range of activities that can be enjoyed together. And until 19th June, notonthehighstreet.com will donate 10% of sales from a selection of Experience Gifts to registered UK charity Little Troopers, which supports all children who have parents serving in the British Armed Forces.  A very worthy cause indeed.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
