If you are still looking for inspiration for Father’s Day, then step right this way. The special day takes place on Sunday 17th June this year, and whether you are treating your dad, your step dad, your baby daddy, or just a special father figure in your life, you want to get something special.
Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Chrome Edition Razor
If you dad is still traditional when it comes to shaving, and avoids electric shavers with a passion, then a good gift idea is an upgrade on his plastic bic. The Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Chrome Edition Razor is a beautiful chrome razor that is sleek and stylish and offers a shave it promises you will barely feel.
Gillette also say:-
ProGlide responds to contours and gets virtually every hair. The Precision Trimmer on the back is great for hard-to-reach areas such as under the nose and sideburns.
One razor blade should last for a month, and replacements are easy to source from stores like Boots, so this ticks all the boxes as a practical present that also looks very good. The razor has a rrp of £14.99, but you can currently find it on offer in Boots for £9.99.
Thortful Cards and Gifts
If you live further afield from dad, and need to send a gift or card through the post, then a little something from Thortful could be a lovely gift solution. Thortful.com is a creative card marketplace, that supports a community of designers, illustrators and photographers. Thortful is a haven of beautifully unique greeting cards that you won’t find anywhere else.
Thortful cards range from the funny, the touching and the sentimental, so you should be able to find a perfect card that totally suits your dad. In addition, they have a range of gifts that incorporate a card and artisan chocolates, giving you a gift that addresses dad’s sweet tooth.
The cards arrive quickly, and the quality is superb, with all cards made from FSC certified paper. Additionally, they are chlorine free, hard metal free as well as being fully recyclable and biodegradable, so if your dad is interested in green issues, these will definitely delight.
Thortful cards start at around £3.29, and can be delivered straight to the recipient, or to your door with an additional envelope.
Encona’s Carolina Reaper sauce
If your dad’s favourite film is ‘Some like It Hot’ then the Encona Carolina Reaper sauce is a gift that would be a big hit with his tastebuds this Father’s Day. This is a sauce that is hot, hot, hot – think about those challenges on ‘Man V Food’ and you get the general idea.
The hot and fruity sauce contains the Carolina Reaper chilli, said to be 25 times hotter than the piri piri chilli and officially in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s hottest chilli. The sauce has been blended with tomatoes, garlic, cumin and orange to give a well-rounded flavour that is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds and challenge your adventurous streak.
The Carolina Reaper Sauce has a RRP of £1.59 for a 142ml bottle, and you can find it at Tesco and Iceland. It would be great as part of a gift hamper for dad, maybe with all the ingredients for tacos or enchilladas.
Dove Skincare Sets
Dad can have his own form of pampering this Father’s Day with a gift idea from Dove. These affordable, yet thoughtful gifts will help ensure dad maintains healthy and hydrated skin all through the summer. In addition, Dove Men +Care’s innovative MicroMoisture Technology helps to protect against dryness and skin irritation and are 100% designed for men.
For Father’s Day the gifting range includes the Dove Men +Care Duo Gift Set containing the Clean Comfort Body & Face Wash and Clean Comfort antiperspirant, perfect if dad is planning a holiday this summer. There is also the Dove Men + Care Trio Gift Set which has the two products found in the duo set, plus the Extra Fresh Body & Face Wash.
Another fab idea is the Dove Men + Care Ultimate Wash Bag Gift Set, which includes Dove Men+Care’s Fresh Body & Face Wash, Fresh Clean 2in1 Shampoo + Conditioner, Clean Comfort Body & Face Wash and antiperspirant. It all comes contained in a stylish wash bag, and again is perfect for a dad planning on doing some travelling this summer.
You can find these gift ideas at Asda, Morrisons and most supermarkets and chemists.
Food Treats From Italian Hampers From Vorrei
If your dad is a real foodie, and loves a touch of the Mediterranean when it comes to his diet, then a food treat or Italian Hamper may be something that will be enjoyed (and maybe even shared).
Italian Hampers by Vorrei are a family-run online Italian hamper site specialising in authentic and natural Italian food and wine. They have a range of beautiful gift boxes and hampers that are packed with products sourced from producers in Italy, giving that real authentic touch.
There are treats for those who love the sweeter things in life, pasta based sets that will appeal to the amateur cook, and, of course, there is a great selection of cheese and wine. As goods are available for next day delivery, there is still time to get a treat for dad, and with gluten free and vegan options also available, all dads should be happy with your choice.
