Father’s Day Gifts

How is it almost Father’s Day already? We’ve got to start thinking about buying gifts for our Dad’s and Granddad’s, and with less than a week to go before the big day we’d all better get our socks pulled up and make a start!

I have scoured the region for the best of the best and here’s my 5 favourite pressies for the men in our lives.

Hotel Chocolat

Hotel-Chocolat-The-Beer-CollectionHotel Chocolat have invented The Beer Collection, a fabulous little box of amazing keg shaped chocolates filled with four different kinds of beer, including; Ginger Beer, Caramel Stout, Pale Cocoa Beer, and a complex Cocoa Beer. There are four of each keg, making a whopping 16 beer infused chocs per box, perfect for any dad. For more Father’s Day gift ideas from Hotel Chocolat check out this article.

Priced at £10 per box, and available in Leeds from Boar Lane or Albion Place or Online at www.hotelchocolat.com

Epionce Essential Recovery Kit

Epionce-Recovery-Kit-by-Effortless-SkinThis little kit is available through Effortless Skin, and even though I’m giving it a mention as a special father’s day gift, it can also be used by women! And, won’t it make a change for us ladies to ‘borrow’ our man’s products, as they so often ‘borrow’ ours.

The Epionce Essential Recovery Kit has a number of elements, a Priming Oil to encourage faster healing (perfect pre-shave), an Enriched Firming Mask which will nourish add calm the skin (perfect for post-shave) and a Medical Barrier Cream which repairs the skin (just like a moisturiser).

Priced at £26.50 for the set of three products and available from Effortless Skin Online at www.effortlessskin.com

Yorkshire Tea

Yorkshire-Tea-TeapotThis gift is most unusual, but I figured that for the Dad who has everything he could possibly ever need, a cup of tea will always be greatly received!

Yorkshire Tea is synonymous with quality, ethical sourcing, and great taste, so a pot of tea on Father’s Day morning is an absolute must.

I love the large teapot branded with Yorkshire Tea, and the cute tea caddy filed with 80 tea bags.

Priced at £15 for the 1 litre tea pot and £2.49 for the tea caddy (with 80 tea bags) both available from Amazon, or check out the Yorkshire Tea website at www.yorkshiretea.co.uk and search for Collectables.

Dermalogica

Dermalogica-Shave-KitDermalogica’s Shave System Kit is perfect for a man who travels a lot either with work or for pleasure ensuing that they keep on top of their healthy skin routine. A simple three-step process includes using a Daily Clean Scrub and Pre-Shave Guard to prep the skin, soften the beard and minimise irritation, ingrown hair, nicks and cuts. Soothing Shave Cream will cushion the skin and reduce razor drag for a clean even shave. And Post Shave Balm and Daily Defense SPF15 will refresh and protect.

Priced at £44 for the full set and available from any Dermalogica stockist and Online at www.dermalogica.co.uk

Oliver Sweeney

Oliver-Sweeney-Aldeburgh-Tan-BrogueThe Aldeburgh Tan Oxford Brogue is unique to Oliver Sweeney, not just a classical choice of shoe, but because what makes the Oliver Sweeney brogue special is that it can be completed with a Sweeney Tattoo! This means that if you buy your (very lucky) Dad a pair of these stunning shoes you can choose a design of your own preference and Oliver Sweeney will use a real tattoo gun and ink to complete your shoe with your very personal design.

Using exactly the same technique and equipment as would be used for a normal tattoo (leather is a skin, after all) the incredibly talented Tattooist-in-Chief is able to tattoo any design of your choice on to any tan leather, Oliver Sweeney product.

Priced at £195 and available in Leeds at the Victoria Quarter Oliver Sweeney store, or Online at www.oliversweeney.com

Have a wonderful Father’s Day whatever you are doing, I hope the sun shines for you and it’s a Sunday to remember.  I’d like to thank Hotel Chocolat, Dermalogica and Yorkshire Tea for kindly sending samples.

Ciao for now
