Fathers Day Gift Guide – Lookin’ Good
With less than a week to go until we celebrate Fathers Day, I am here to bring you some fabulous gift ideas, that range in price from a few £s to the more expensive choices, but remember the homemade cards or the school made key rings, probably rank as the most treasured possessions for parents!
This first guide is all about making the Man in your life, whether that be husband, dad or granddad look good, more and more men are turning to the beauty products to preserve their looks, or just to get rid of that fuzzy facial hair, if you’re not a fan!
NIVEA MEN – It’s not just dads that love Nivea, Lochlan received a Nivea Men set for Christmas, and ever since he has been hooked, they do a fab range of products, with prices as low as £1.99. The grooming brand’s revamped Protect & Care Range features a new and improved formula and more masculine scent – the perfect skincare treat for the man in your life.
JUST MY LOOK – This site is not just for men, so if you happen to add a little extra to your basket for mum, then I guess it’s OK as it is the thought that counts! Just My Look has an amazing range of products for Fathers Day, one of our particular favourites is the Man Stuff drawer gift set, which is only £8.95 and has everything the man could possibly need!
DOBELL MENSWEAR – When we say looking good, we don’t just mean the beauty part, there’s also the clothes, and we have discovered an wonderful site called Dobell that provides the man in your life with THE smartest attire at excellent value for money, so if you have somewhere posh to take your husband or dad, then this is the place to get kitted out, they also have brilliant work suits (although that’s a bit too practical for Fathers Day!) but my most favourite items on the site (although I am sure I would never get my husband to wear them, maybe my teenage son) are these very funky suits!
SKIN SAVIOUR -This little pot of wonder is the work of Sarah Dawkins and is made from organic extra virgin olive oil, organic coconut oil and organic beeswax.

It also features a handy flip trimmer, alleviating the struggle to completely shave difficult areas of the face.
BIODERMA AND ESTHEDERM – Two brands that are known for their excellent moisturising and facial cleaning properties, which are now becoming just as important to the men as the women, and who can blame them, when there are SO many lovely men on the television to swoon over…
