Feel Good Father’s Day Gifts

Here is a selection of London Mums’ favourite Father’s Day Gifts.  


For the ‘history buff’ Dad

RAF Roundel Cufflinks – £12.99

2018 marks 100 years since the RAF was formed and these elegant cufflinks available from the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Shop help mark the occasion perfectly. They are stunning when attached to a white shirt. Featuring the Force’s distinctive red, white and blue design, these cufflinks are sure to add a splash of colour to Dad’s wardrobe. They are also very elegant and certainly patriotic. All profits from the sales of these cufflinks go directly to the charity and their important work in providing lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families.


RAF 100 is one of our favourite Father’s Day Gifts.

For the Dad who would fancy a Ferrari 
Well, well… This might be tricky but for Ferrari lovers Meccano offers car enthusiast dads the ultimate Father’s Day gift, the Meccano Ferrari F12tdf Building Set for only £29.99. My 11 year old building genius son Diego assembled it for me to show how complicated and fun it is. This  Meccano kit includes 271 parts to build a perfect replica of every dad’s dream car.

At the time of original production, Ferrari made only 799 of these extreme road cars. Now lucky dads can get their hands on this exclusive model. As the engineer, they’ll receive all the wheels, pieces and tools needed to construct this 9.5” long extreme sports car replica. 

Developed by Meccano, formerly Erector, this model uses unique FLEXTech panels to loyally replicate the distinct, curvy lines of the original Ferrari F12tdf. Made of bendable plastic, the panels add dimension and authenticity to this extreme road car. Plus, the poseable Ferrari-style wheels on this S.T.E.M model car allows you to display the F12tdf in a variety of ways.
Dads will love stretching their engineering skills and take on the challenge of the Meccano Ferrari F12tdf this Father’s Day.  
The Tools are included as well as 271 Parts, 1 Decal Sheet, 1 Instruction Sheet for 1 Model. And Meccano novices don’t need to worry as it is a building set suitable for a 10+ year old child.  Count between 1-3 hours build time. And you don’t need batteries as the set is fully mechanical. 
Taking between 1 – 3 hours to build this is also a great gift to get dad and the children spending quality time building together. 
Meccano Ferrari is available now from Argos
