Candyroo have over 70 delicious sweets that you can choose from in order to build your perfect Pick n Mix pouch. They also stock a range of American sweets, “free from” that are suitable for vegans that also extend to nougat and fudge. I have never seen vegan fudge before. In fact I have found it is hard to find vegan Cola bottles too but Candyroo have done it. They have pre-made mixes you can buy in a choice of weights, or you can build your own.
In addition to sweets Candyroo are also building a climate positive workplace, planting a tree for every sale made. So not only are you giving somebody a delicious treat you are doing something for the world too. What’s not to love!

These gift boxes also come with 10 or 25 coffeebrewers from Brew-Company and its £11.95 for the box of 5. They are perfect for slinging in a bag if you are going away for the weekend and hate instant coffee in a hotel room!
Masterclass Subscription — From £14 a month billed annually
This is such a lovely idea. How about a gift subscription to Masterclass? This would then allow your recipient to join up to the platform and spend time learning a new cookery skill, many of them from great names such as Gordon Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck, or Alice Waters. There are, or course, a whole series of other interests covered too though such as make up lessons, singing lessons from Mariah Carey, creative writing with Margaret Attwood, the list is endless and gift subscriptions give a year’s access to the platform.
This is a great selection of beers and ales that you get to choose yourself! You can pick any combination of the 13 500ml bottles from their range of iconic ales and cider. Options include the 1698, Whitstable Bay Ruby Ale and Pale Ale, Bishops Finger and a double stout. If you order over £50 you also get free delivery. You can also buy gift cards and let the recipient decide!
Not only is this packed with nine spice blends and barbecue rubs, but it is also wrapped in silk sari. The blends are perfect for lovers of Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Caribbean and Jamaican cooking and it even comes with a recipe book too so your recipient has everything they need to get started on a delicious dinner. You never know, you might get invited too!
Pro Youth Nutrition Bars — From £23.95 for 12
This might not be your first thought for Father’s Day but actually they are a great idea for anybody who is active. They are a natural snack to fuel anyone who is on the go, and who wants a nutritious snack to keep them going. They come in a variety of flavours and they are all suitable for vegetarians. According to the Pro Youth website: “They are also perfect for younger members of the family as they are have different nutritional requirements and less mature digestive system. Using sports nutrition designed for adults may result not only in overconsumption of certain nutrients that may be hard to digest by the younger athlete but also may contain supplements or ingredients that may be unsafe for them”. A winner all round then!
nutriburst Gummies — from £19.99
Talking of thinking about nutrition, how about one or all of these handy chewy nutriburst gummies packed with vitamins and minerals, and yet sugar free? They are also vegan! Packed with nutrients they make taking a multivitamin each day super easy. There are are general ones, such as a multivitamin, or there are some that are slightly more targeted such as for hair, skin and nails. All of them are delicious though!
