GIFT GUIDE: Father’s Day & Dad’s Birthdays!

After writing up a gift ideas post for Mother’s Day I decided to definitely do one to help inspire those of you who find your father difficult to buy stuff for!  I’ve put together a selection of products (with small & medium budgets) to help those who still may not have purchased anything!




Rituals is fast becoming one of my favourite go-to bath product brands – not only is their packaging sleek and gorgeous in the bathroom, but their products are great quality and smell bloody fantastic if I do say so myself.
I didn’t know this, but they actually also make products specifically for men which I thought would be perfect for Father’s Day.  First up is the ‘Life is a Journey Car Fragrance’ (£10). It’s little sleek wooden brick slots onto a car’s fan system and blows out a scent to make journeys a lot more pleasurable.  I chose Eucalytpus for my dad as it’s a gorgeous spa scent which will clear his airways (ha)!
Also from Rituals is a perfume.  The last scent I gave to my dad was Viktor & Rolf’s Spicebomb which he adores and so I chose out No.14 Fresh Cypress & Tangerine (£39) as another gift.  It’s aromatic which a hint of wood & fruit making a gorgeous signature scent.

Radox For Men
It’s not only women that enjoy pampering and bubble baths!  Radox have a couple of products perfect for men, such as the Muscle Therapy bubble bath – complete with ginseng & black pepper to help gently warm muscles and sooth any aches and pains.  They also have a Stress Relief Bubble Bath (which my Dad could definitely do with for dealing with three women around the house) and a Radox For Men Shower Gel.

Gilette & Braun
I mentioned the new Braun CoolTec CS2 in my previous post but if your dad’s a fan of the original shaver then Gilette produce great ones!

The Body Shop & Kiehls Skincare
Ever since I’ve starting blogging I have slowly convinced the whole Snooks family to have their very own skincare regime and one of the most willing participants is my dad!  He has a special interest in eye creams and so I thought it’d be a good idea to broaden his horizons and introduce him to some Body Shop Maca Root and Kiehls skincare.  All of the Maca Root range is fab (Andrew and my grandad use it as well) so my dad is sure to be a fan.  Kiehls is a bit more pricey but makes a wonderful gift – their packaging looks incredible in my dad’s shower room and the products are packed full of ingredients to help soothe and look after male skin.

And what’s father’s day without a little bit of licquer!

That’s it!  Sorry for the hefty post – it’s a lot more detailed than the Mother’s Day one but men are harder to buy for!  I hope you have a lovely day on Sunday with your Dad’s!  Let me know what you end up getting him.

What are you getting your Dad for Father’s Day?  Would he like any of the above?
