Father’s Day is upon us, Sunday 18th June to be precise, so I’ve put together a gift guide that will hopefully ensure novelty socks don't find their way into your underwear drawer this year. Have a read of what the kids (but in reality mum) could get you this Father’s Day.
Say Nice Things Cadence Notebook – Available in a range of subtle designs with unassuming quality, they're ideal for helping us busy dads stay organised or be creative. This particular bike design would be perfect for the Bradley Wiggins (or Boris Johnson) in your life.
Buy here £7.99
Mahabis – Ok, ok, I bang on about Mahabis all the time, but you know, I basically love them (not an ad!). The detachable sole allows you to wear these stylish slippers inside and out; perfect when you need to go to the garage to hide from the kids, sorry I mean, err, fetch that screwdriver.
Buy here £79
Manifesto – When it’s time to admit those DIY haircuts whilst leaning over the bath don’t cut the mustard, head to Manifesto. Be treated to ‘The Dandy’ where you can relax and enjoy a traditional wet shave (or beard trim), haircut, treatment, head massage and a glass of whisky.
Buy here £80
Pacapod Gladstone – When out and about with the kids, us dads are often left with a flowery and confusing holdall of nappies, biscuit crumbs, rotten apples, 6-months-old copies of Vogue and an array of lipstick. Luckily, Pacapod have developed changing bags with clever detachable pods to store everything neatly, thus thankfully avoiding the usual labyrinth of messy mayhem.
Buy here £150
FRAME L'Homme Jacket - ok, admittedly this is pretty pricey, so you might need all the kids, the neighbours' kids, mum, nieces, nephews and the dog to chip in, but it's nice isn't it? FRAME are the denim choice of many a star right now, including Daniel Craig (who's basically the world's coolest secret agent) so it must be good right?
