Dear Daddy Dearest…

Leave the socks on the shelf this year and give him something that he won’t only love, but he’ll be boasting about to the rest of the house husbands and papa bears of the clan.

From the adventure-seeking dad, to the handyman, the big gamer and everything in between… we’ve got something for every dad.

The usual suspect LUSH has released their 2017 Limited Edition Father’s Day range including some manly favourites; Super Dad Bath Bomb, Dirty Springwash and the Modfather Bubble Bar, among more. A new culprit added to the special collection is the highly aromatic Stairway to Heaven Soap. Oozing with uplifting bergamot, star fruit and rose… this one will really knock dad’s socks off!

Speaking of luscious scents floating through the air: meet Loo Fume (think French, while pronouncing the quirky name, almost ‘le fume’). A new creation by the environmentally friendly and palm oil free brand Green Potions. Simply keep it in the W/C and spray into the toilet bowl after flushing to overpower the smell and freshen the loo up. He’ll get a kick out of it, while you get a heavenly whiff of lemon myrtle every time he floods out the bathroom with a stink-bomb.

For the nerdy gamer dad, we’ve got the key to his heart with the gamer’s choice Logitech G G413 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Up his game this Father’s Day with the Romer-G switches and Precision Key Lighting. Our favourite of the two is the carbon with striking red backlighting, but you can also get the keyboard in silver with white backlighting.

Back to basics, Fjällräven has been preventing back problems among Swedish school children and the world at large since 1978. Almost 40 years on and their durable, water-resistant Vinylon F Kånken is still a practical fashion icon. Give dad and his back a break, give a Kånken. Available in a wide range of colours, you’ll be wanting to join the Kånken family too!

While you’re at it, join the party! Our ultimate favourite speaker brand Ultimate Ears is always experimenting with sound and coming up with grand new inventions like the WonderBoom. If your family is anything like mine, you’ll have the whole collection… UE Boom2, Roll2, Megaboom. The best thing about UE Booms is that you can pair them up to create the ultimate party sound. Not to mention, these babies are waterproof too! Seriously, for the ultimate big, beautiful bass sound… look no further than Ultimate Ears.

Match his heart of gold with our 2018 Desk Calendar in Gold Foil. Printed on Eco White Recycled 300gsm card, you’re being kind to the Earth and Papa Bear!

And if dad’s really into the Earth and loves to get down and dirty and go camping and get wild in nature then you definitely can’t go wrong with the Leatherman Skeletool. Everything a handy dad could ever need… just check out the long list below;

- Needlenose Pliers
- Regular Pliers
- Hard-wire Cutters
- Wire Cutters
- 420HC Combo Knife
- Carabiner/Bottle Opener
- Large Bit Driver

With all that handy work dad will be doing, he’s gonna get thirsty and we all know that even though a good old cold one is dad’s go-to, not today. Well, maybe one today seeing as it’s his special day, but pre-happy hour Klean Kanteen’s got him sorted. These stainless steel insulated bottles are the better choice when choosing a water bottle, especially of the plastic kind. Both reusable and recyclable, this bottle is durable with a doubewall construction and will keep your liquid chilled for 24 hours. Or if caffeine is more your style, this bad boy will keep your hot liquids hot for 12 hours. Did we mention that Klean Kanteen’s are welded together by hand then electropolished for a smooth, easy to clean finish?

Whatever you get him, don’t forget to write him a little note saying why you’re so glad he’s your dad!
