When you’re stuck for an idea of what to get dad, do you usually opt for socks?! Dads can be tricky to buy for unless they have a solid hobby, but here are a few modern ideas for the man in your life. To make it easy to find something suitable, here’s a list of Father’s Day gift ideas 2015.
Does he love music? Then a jukebox makes a fun, retro gift. When music players are getting smaller and you can have 1000 songs in your back pocket, why not go the other way and upsize! A classic Wurlitzer would set you back around £7,000 but Argos have a replica small jukebox with CD and radio for £199.99.
To decorate the area around ‘his’ chair, how about an Ampersand! This piece of wall art comes from Graham & Brown and has a vintage effect map on it. The Ampersand is £45 and would add some classic style to his office or ‘man cave’!
Proud to be British? Then this iPhone 6 case from Barbour will give his mobile some style! It is a hard shell protective case featuring the Union Jack and is available from Proporta for £19.95.
If he is more ‘tech man’ than traditional, then there is another cool case from The Glow Company. This is a unique website that only sells things that glow or illuminate! The iLight protective case is for an iPhone 5 or 5s and lights up your whole phone when you receive a call or text! It is in the picture above (the yellow case) but as the phone isn’t receiving data in this shot, here is a better image to show you what the iLight can do!
Dads are always needed to do a long list of jobs around the house so why not make it easy for hin to see what needs doing! The Dad’s To Do List notepad from Mum’s Office can be fridge mounted (it has a magnet) and comes with tearaway sheets that are organised into three sections: ‘What Mum needs me to do’; ‘What the kids want me to do’ and ‘What I would like to do!’ For just £5.95 it is an affordable and useful gift idea. You can see a close up below.
Roger&Gallet has a L’Homme range that includes a Sport Eau-de-Cologne which is a modern scent for men. A blend of red berries, grapefruit and cardamom with base notes of cedar and amber make a sensuous perfume he’ll love. The 100ml EDT retails at £33.50.
Roger&Gallet also has an after shave balm enriched with aloe vera and white tea to soothe razor burn and moisturise. It has a fluid non greasy texture that helps skin preserve its tone and firmness. A 75ml tube is £12 and you can see it in the blue tube laid down in the photo above.
Also pictured are two fabulous products from the Vichy Homme range. First, an Anti Irritation Shaving Foam that is specially formulated for mens skin to prevent chafing and irritation. Then afterwards, the Anti Fatugue Hydrating Care works on the face and eyes to recharge skin with energy whilst reducing puffiness and dark circles. The shaving foam is £8 for 150ml and the moisturiser is £16.50 for 50ml.
