Being a parent in 2018 is tough. Mum is continuously on the go taking the kids to and from school, off to clubs or managing finances. Dad’s at work, dealing with the daily grind, and home, mending broken toys (or hearts), lending a shoulder or being a 24-hour taxi. There’s only so much time to do what counts!
Dads never ask for what they want. But we know he doesn’t like clutter, so let’s show him how to refine his lifestyle. So, to make your choice easier, I have collaborated with Braun to create 5 gifts for under £50 that he’ll love.
Father’s Day Mixed Styles – 18 Beer Gift Bundle; Honest Brew, £48.90
Don’t give him socks, give Dad a taster from some of the world’s best breweries with this 18 Beer Bundle complete with bar blade and exclusive glass. Raise a glass to him in class!
Ultimate BBQ Kit; World of Zing at BoroughBox, £29.95
Turn Dad into a better BBQ chef by buying him this Ultimate BBQ Kit from BoroughBox. He might think he’s Jamie Oliver now when he picks up his grill plate, but he’ll turn into a BBQ King when he starts mixing and matching with these sauces, rubs and salt! There is enough choice in this collection for anyone’s palate (suitable for vegans and vegetarians too).
Braun Series 3 ProSkin Electric Shaver – Amazon, £48.50
Braun is designed for what matters, just like Dad. So, why not give his daily routine an upgrade with a fabulous Series 3 ProSkin Electric Shaver. Braun’s technical innovation, reliable quality and distinctive design will give Dad the shave of a King. The Series 3 ProSkin has a 3-Flex head and MicroComb for faster shaving with excellent skin comfort. 100% waterproof IPX7 certified gives Dad the chance to shave and shower or the ability to run it under the tap to clean when he’s on the go. Its MicroComb technology captures more hair for a faster shave. Featuring triple action cutting and 2x Sensofoil delivering a close shave with minimal effort. Coupled with its ergonomic grip with iconic Braun rubber dot pattern, makes it rugged enough for everyday use.
Braun creates industry-leading grooming tools that combine state of the art technology with sleek design. Highly recommended in my household. Andy is the “Dad” in our home, is often experimenting with different men’s grooming equipment. But his go-to in 2018 is the Braun ProSkin 3040S.
It’s as close as you can get without having to wet shave – Andy Turner, CreamNWhiskers
Easy to take on the go when he’s too busy to stop and compact enough to pop in his toiletry bag for when we go away for a few days. If he wants to grow the stubble he can trim it, or if he wants a close, clean shave, no matter what look he wants, there’s a Braun Shaver to match his mood.
Slush Puppie Machine – Prezzybox, £49.99
Who doesn’t love nostalgia? Brain freeze, blue tongues and trying to get the assistant to add more Blue Raspberry Syrup to the mix so you would be buzzing off sugar for days. This beauty from Prezzybox replicates the iconic Slushie design in a compact machine, ideal for the Summer. Or for when Dad wants to be ten again!
Last but not least:
Urban Beekeeping and Hiver Honey Beer Tasting – Red Letter Days, £34
If Dad is into Nature, then this is perfect. Spend 2 hours in Kennington, London, Dad getting suited and booted and taken on a live beehive inspection with the guys and girls from Hiver Beer. He will get to handle the frames, learn how to produce beer and head back to a food and beer matching session where he can relax and unwind.
Whatever the gift you choose, we think Dad will have the most amazing Father’s Day 2018.
