This year has been breezing by way too quickly, but the one benefit is that summer is on our doorstep! Summer also means an important day in every dad’s calendar, where we show some appreciation and love for them.
One word, wow! Upgrade your dads TV set with the Creative Stage 360 2.1 Soundbar, creating cinematic audio (perfect if you want a movie night in to celebrate father’s day) and real life atmospheric simulation.

You hear the name Dolce & Gabbana and you instantly think of luxury, whether it’s clothing or an Eau De Toilette.
Perfume Direct have an amazing range of men’s perfumes, all at different prices to fit your budget, but I can promise this is one my dad would love!
The scent is incredible, priced at £46.99 for the 50ml bottle, while they also offer it in a 30ml, 100ml and 150ml bottle. You do benefit from economies of scale, so if your budget permits, it could be worth going for the bigger bottle.
The Edifier W240TN true wireless earbuds, with Active Noise Cancellation, have a range of exciting features and continues Edifier’s signature design language and stellar audio fidelity capabilities.
Armed with Dual Dynamic Drivers, the W240TN creates a wide sound field aimed at immersing listeners with their favourite songs. Compared to single drivers, the W240TN maintains delicate details even at a high volume threshold.
Getting a high quality pair of earbuds can be a cost that people don’t always want to lavish on themselves, so it works perfectly as a Father’s day gift.
I remember using moisturiser as a 15 year old and all my mates thinking it was bizarre, turn forward 10 years and they were asking me for advice on which one to use. Times are changing, guys are realising the importance of protecting your skin and reducing the signs of ageing.
Winner of the Beauty Shortlist Awards, the Jane Scrivner Brightening B 3 Hydrate Glow is premium quality serum that will purify, reawaken and hydrate the skin.
Containing a blend of prebiotics & probiotics, as well as natural oils, plus Vitamin B, B3 and Niacinamide, this is a brilliant option for those dads that want (or need) a TLC gift.
I never understood wireless headphones, thinking it was an unnecessary advancement, until I got a pair and have never looked back. You can walk around the house with the music still playing, not having to worry about plugging it in or the wires getting caught up. It’s even better when weight training, as you don’t have to worry about the wires getting caught on a dumbbell or getting in the way.
Edifier are an unbelievable brand, well known for their wireless headphones, while the WH500 sell for a decent price and are foldable meaning they can take up less space when commuting. They offer 40 hours of non-stop play time, they have a fast charge, plus it has a built-in microphone so you can answer calls while listening to your jams.
Lakrid managed to completely change my perceptions of liquorice. This isn’t anything like the black liquorice you used to dip into sherbet, this is the highest quality chocolate coated liquorice.
The two packs highlighted are Mango Vanilla and Dark Truffle, both tasting absolutely brilliant, especially the truffle.
You can pick up a pack for £20, while they also have selection boxes, in case you don’t know the flavour your dad will like the most.
If your dad is in to country walks, then having a drinking bottle on him is key, especially in the warmer months.
The FLSK is available as 500ml, 750ml or 1,000ml, while it can keep your water cold for a whole 24 hours or keep your coffee warm for 18 hours, depending on what he prefers to sip on.
You have a range of colours of the stainless steel bottle, with the colour in the image being the MDNGHT version. Why not double up this gift with an offer of going on a nice walk, then top his bottle up with a coffee for the road.
The lightweight Zen Air headphones come in their own charging box, taking up barely any room so they can easily be taken with you and slipped into your pocket when needed.
They have active noise cancellation so your dad can commute or head out without having to listen to others on the train.
With an 18 hour play time, an ambient mode, quad mics and wireless charging, this is top end technology that your dad will love. It even has sweatproof technology in case your dad goes jogging or heads to the gym regularly.
A great face wash is an integral part of every guys self-care routine, while this luxurious option by Athletia contains Moroccan clay and plant derived scrubs to help clear your pores of any impurities.
The Scrub Wash will help to exfoliate and cleanse your skin, removing the dead skin cells that build-up over time. It also has a great fragrance, courtesy of the inclusion of juniper berries, celery seed, rosemary, marjoram and cedarwood.
Honestly, one of my best recommendations on this list has to be the Qwickhose starter set. If your dad is a keen gardener, then he has most likely faced the inevitable frustration of the hose connector coming loose, spraying everywhere and needing replacing every couple of years.
However, the award winning Qwickhose starter set provides the ultimate solution, including a wall mount, hose connector, nozzle spray gun, tap connector and a no-flow hose connector.
So it’s goodbye to leakages, goodbye to the connector popping off the tap and hello to the future of gardening equipment, all for £39.99.
The boxers by Steph One truly are unique, you can pick up ones based on your dads personal preferences, whether that’s a foodie option such as the pizza or banana ones you can see in the pics, or maybe the ‘lucky pants’ with a lucky horseshoe and five leaf clover.
The pouch has a hidden piece of elastic for extra comfort, while the boxers also have ‘ultraglide panels’, which basically means no chaffing. Chaffing can be an absolute nightmare if going for a jog or a long bike ride, so this sounds like an absolute gem.
Made from super soft bamboo viscose and highly breathable, these aren’t just about a bit of humour with the boxers, they really are high quality.
My dad was the one that introduced me to eau de toilette back when I was around 14, while it quickly became an annual birthday present, so what better way to return the favour than getting him one for Father’s day.
It’s hard to know which one to pick with so many available, but one you might not have used before and is definitely worth buying is Jaguar ERA. I’m a bit fussy when it comes to fragrances, but I was really impressed by this one.
It has woody notes and the scent lasted the full day, your dad will love this as a gift, especially if they’ve got into a habit of using the same spray for the past decade.
Ask my dad for one thing and after much deliberation, I’ll bet you he says ‘whiskey’. A great bottle of single malt Irish whiskey is an absolute gem of a gift.
Matured for at least 10 years in sherry and bourbon seasoned barrels, this triple distilled Irish whiskey is an ideal drink for the summer time.
Bushmills Irish Whiskey has been crafting liquid gold for over 400 years and was the creator of the world’s first Irish single malt.
The Nanogen Hair Fibres are a great tool if your dad’s hair is starting to thin, helping to add volume and thickness. They also have a number of different shades, so you can get the right one for him.
You simply shake the keratin hair fibres onto your head and spread it in with your fingers. However, you can further enhance results by purchasing the hair fibre locking spray, which is wind and rain resistant, keeping everything in place.
The hair locking spray even has UV filters to protect your hair colour against sun damage. These work together perfectly to create natural looking thick hair.
The winner of the Beauty Awards and Get The Gloss Beauty Awards, Athletia are on to a winner with this scalp soothing shampoo, the ultimate luxury in self-care.

It will also leave your hair smelling amazing, with a combination of ginger, lemon, eucalyptus and cedarwood essential oils.
A great bottle of alcohol is always a brilliant gift for dads across the world, while if it’s one he’s never tried before then it can also be fun to introduce him to a hidden gem.
If your dad is a fan of gin then this is a definite one to try, containing botanicals such as seaweed, lavender, heather and pine.
Best served with a blackberry and mint garnish, you could get the whole set and make him a Tom Collins for his special day.
One of the most commonly deficient vitamins for people in the UK is Vitamin D, largely thanks to the lack of sun we get during the colder months.
However, Vitamin D is incredibly essential to improve your mood and your immune system, so supplementing with a capsule once per day can help to ensure you’re getting enough.
The Vitamin capsules by Purolabs are vegetarian friendly, meaning they don’t use gelatine in their formula, while you get 90 in a pack, so this will sort your dad out for 3 months.
The Rose Range by Trii includes a hand & body wash bar, exfoliating bar and moisturiser bar. The solid body-care products are an ideal modern way to provide a no-leak formula that results in zero product wastage, as you can add the new bars to the tins.
The moisturising bar includes cocoa butter to help hydrate the skin and provides a great scent as well. A lot of guys are guilty of not exfoliating once per week, however this could be the push your dad needs, with the wash bar including apricot and pumice to gently exfoliate the old skin cells off the skin.
These bars are perfect to take on holiday, to the gym or even just in the bathroom, while they take up less space when storing a few.
My dad loves a cheeky tipple (I wonder who I got it from), however you can’t help but worry about the damage you could be causing your body in the long run.
So it’s fascinating to see the launch of De-liver-ance, a food supplement with a proprietary blend of herbs, roots and extracts all ideally chosen to help support your liver.
You can order the bottles in different quantities based on how many you want for your dad, with the smallest option being 3 bottles for £23.99.
Next time your visiting your dad, take a look at his razor in the bathroom and check how old it is, us guys are notorious at not changing the heads or not upgrading when we need to.
Getting your dad the Gillette Labs razor can stop him scratching up his face with an old blunt one, while it also has an exfoliating bar to remove dirt and debris from your face, plus it comes in a magnetic stand so the razor isn’t just left on the side.
The Flexdisc allows the razor to naturally glide across the contours of your face, ensuring a closer shave and a better look.
Why not combine your gift as both a present and an experience. Pick out a great movie your dad will love (or ask him to pick one), then bring a Movie Night In gift box from Joe & Seph’s.
The box includes a range of scrumptious popcorns, the ideal snack for a movie night, while you can also get a personalised message written on the box.
The gourmet popcorns included in the box are distinctly mature cheddar, salted caramel, toffee apple & cinnamon, peanut butter, caramel & Belgian chocolate and some milk chocolate popcorn bites.
The jigsaw highlighted is Brighton, the area I’ve lived for the past 15 years before moving to Burgess Hill, while I can even spot my old flat on Marine Parade, overlooking the Pier.
Jigsaw’s are an incredibly relaxing game that can be done as a family, either on Father’s day or when visiting for Christmas, while adding the personalisation factor of an area you both know well will make it that much more fun.
The Happy Puzzle Company offer these city jigsaws for 98 different towns across the UK, while you can either go for a 400 or a 1,000 piece, depending on how brave you’re feeling.
We have seen gins be boosted by a number of interesting tonics, however rum hasn’t quite had the same level of mixer creativity. However Franklin & Sons have found the ideal accompaniment to a coconut or spiced rum.
The pineapple & almond soda provides a tropical hit at 20 calories, so much less than a glass of coke, while you can order a crate of the sparkling water for £20.
They have a range of other flavours, in case your dad has a particular preference, including the likes of rhubarb & hibiscus, Sicilian lemon, ginger beer and guava & lime.
Walking around a friend’s house a few months ago, I instantly smelt a great aroma filling the room. My eyes darted to the plugs to see if they had put something in, but I actually found out it was a diffuser in the living room, a relatively new concept to me.
The Copenhagen Company produce an unbelievable range of luxury scented diffusers so you can be sure your house smells amazing when people visit.
Essence of Time has fragrance notes of cherry and coriander, while you will detect patchouli and sandalwood. The burn lasts up to 12 week, while the slick bottle it comes in also adds an attractive style to the room.

The perfect detox pack for when your dad needs to unwind on a Sunday before the week ahead, he will love the scent of the black pepper & ginseng, utilised in all of these products.
The pack also looks really slick, so it looks like an incredibly expensive gift, but it won’t completely break the bank, available from Amazon.
I used to live off protein shakes back in my weight training days, the perfect tool to ensure you were hitting your macronutrient targets, but as I’ve got older, what I want in a shake has completely changed.
The Pulsin Immunity Supershake not just contains 20 grams of protein per serving, but it also comes with live bacteria and Vitamin C to help support your immune system. It’s vegan friendly and packed full of probiotics.
The protein is a combination of pea, pumpkin and rice, while it contains sweetener rather than sugar so you don’t have to worry about that aspect either.
Manchester Drinks has a range of delicious gin liqueurs that your dad has to try! These include blood orange, rhubarb & ginger, Parma violet, mystical unicorn, snow fairy, raspberry & rose, watermelon crush and strawberries & cream.
They come in a 500ml bottle, at 20% alcoholic volume, meaning he can have a cheeky few without getting too merry.
These gin liqueurs taste amazing, they’re ideal if he’s a gin lover and it can be amazing to introduce your dad to a new tipple (I introduced my dad to a few over the past couple of years and love doing it).
If your dads a massive fan of cider then he will love these fruity ones by Cranes, complete with a branded pint glass.
The three flavours you get are blueberries & apple, cranberries & lime as well as raspberries & pomegranate. The gift set is £16.99, or they sell them individually if you know a flavour he will love.
With summer sneaking up on us, a tasty fruity cider in the garden could be the perfect way to celebrate Father’s day 2023.
I do love an espresso martini! The energy boost from the coffee is great when out celebrating, while enjoying it from a can means you can do this from the comfort of your own home or at a garden BBQ.
However, if you’re looking to cut back on your drinks or only allowed a few for the night, then this is a great option as you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
The sweet vanilla and mocha notes really add a tasty punch to this drink, while you could look to accompany the 12 pack of RTD cans with an espresso martini glass to complete the gift.
I remember doing Dry January and meeting up with some friends, I thought I would crack with all the peer pressure I was going to get, so I bought some non-alcoholic beers and sipped on those through the evening and I forgot I wasn’t actually drinking alcohol, it worked a charm.
But not everyone loves beer, what if your dads ‘weapon of choice’ happens to be a glass of whisky on the rocks? Well Clean Co have introduced a non-alcoholic amber oaked bourbon whisky alternative, containing zero sugar, served in a luxurious looking bottle.
The Eco Warrior gift set is ideal for those dads that are trying to cut back on their unnecessary plastics and want shampoo that’s free from SLS, detergents and sulphates.

Back when I was a student I used to buy supermarket basic shampoo and shower gel and the end result was incredibly dry hair and a dry scalp. However, purchasing a luxurious shower gel can sometimes feel like a little excessive, so it can work perfectly as a gift for father’s day.
The Benecos shower gel contains organic apple extract, so your hair will smell incredible afterwards, while it also has coconut tenside and cherry pine oil, helping to soothe your scalp and moisturise the skin, as well as helping your hair to feel nourished and healthy.
If your dad loves to read and has a taste for political pieces (my dad ticks both boxes) then a read of Jim Chambers Urban Scarecrows is a must.
This almost dystopian thriller is a great read, available from Waterstones for £12.99, following an alternative path where the Labour party are victorious in 2019, ushering in a new radical socialist government, while the country moves towards a civil war.
Considering how mad everything was with Brexit, it’s really not that hard to imagine this alternative world.
If your dad has a sweet tooth then he will love the Swizzel’s retro sweets hamper. Including all the classics, such as double dip and rainbow drops, the best of them all has to be Squashies, which me and Raquel love!
You can personalise the box to have a message inside, including up to four lines with 30 characters on each line, meaning this can double up as your card as well.
The hardest part will be stopping yourself from cracking open the box before he does, all that sugar is a serious temptation!
Benecos have launched a men’s gift set, containing a 3-in-1 body wash, as well as am moisturising face & after-shave balm, nicely placed in a cardboard gift bag, ideal for father’s day!
