Fathers Day gift guide

Often the men in our life take a bit of stick, so what better time to show them how much they really are appreciated than on Fathers Day. I have got together with a few brands to bring you a few ideas for that special man in your life.

Pamper products

Firstly from Baylis and Harding this Skin Spa for men gift set currently available in Sainsburys for the promotional price of £7.50

The 300ml Hair & Body Wash and 200ml Shower Gel will gently cleanse and keep him feeling fresh all day, whilst the 200ml Aftershave Balm soothes and nourishes the skin. Subtle notes of Amber & Sandalwood perfectly blend to create this very masculine fragrance. This is the perfect gift or the active man.

You would really impress with a gift from Choctopia prices ranging from £1 to £30

Nestled in the picturesque village of Newdigate on the West Sussex/Surrey border you'll find what we like to call Choctopia HQ, a small workshop where Choctopia founder and chocolatier Matt Hancock hides himself away to handcraft each luxury chocolate.
By mastering techniques learned from World, UK Chocolate Master Ruth Hinks he creates unique designs and flavours using transfers and airbrushing to make Choctopia stand out from the crowd and allow you to give - or treat yourself to - something a little bit different, if you're ever in the area pop in and say hello, there's bound to be a few spare chocolates hanging around.

Compact, smart and handy for travel, this kit contains neutral shoe polish, shoe sponge in black box, shoe sponge with wooden handle, lint removing brush, large shoe brush and a shoe cloth perfect for cleaning and general shoe care. 

I am sure we all know someone who needs a bit of help getting up in a morning or would benefit from some light therapy  then the Lumie Zest the wake up clock with light therapy RRP £125 is the perfect gift

Zest can be used as a wake-up light for a natural start to the day. Waking up with a gradual sunrise is a signal for your body to ease production of sleep hormones (e.g. melatonin) and increase those that help you get up and go (e.g. cortisol). Wake-up lights help to keep your sleep cycle on track, boosting mood, energy and productivity levels all day.

In addition, you can use Zest for bright light therapy in the winter months or when you're stuck indoors. Extra bright light is proven to put you in a better mood and make you feel more awake and using Zest every day will make a big difference to symptoms of SAD such as tiredness, over-eating and a lack of energy and motivation.
  • 15 or 30 minute sunrise to wake you up gradually
  • Variable final brightness to create your perfect sunrise 
  • Optional alarm beep
  • Timer for bright light therapy sessions
  • Selection of light levels from 20% to 100%; choose maximum brightness for quick light therapy treatment
  • Independently verified to deliver 10,000 lux at 25 cm
  • White LEDs enriched with extra blue, the part of the spectrum known to regulate the bodyclock
  • Recommended treatment time: 30 minutes at full brightness
  • Handy size for home, work or travel (mains-powered) 
Having used other Lumie products myself and with my children ( we would not be without our bug) i would not hesitate to reccomend these to anyone, and i am really hoping that the long winter months will be made a lot easier with some light therapy especially those long office days filled with flurescent lighting and little natural light. 

So whatever your dad is interested in there is sure to be something here to interest and make his Father's Day special.
