Self-care gifts this Father’s Day with Braun Series 3 Proskin

Dads really are wonderful. We hear a lot in the news about Mums, and parents in general, but Dads, and my own husband who is also a Father, will always be close to my heart. My husband works 12-hour shifts, comes home and cooks the dinner, fixes broken toys, comforts Daisy when she is upset in the night, supports me through the difficult times in life and all with barely a moan. Dads, much like us Mums, often forget to find time for self-care and a little pampering. I like to encourage my husband to look after himself, both physically and mentally. We try to support one another in finding time to eat well, exercise and look after our bodies. For my husband this means going out for a run several times a week, packing healthy snacks at work and looking after his appearance. Today I’m sharing with you some of the products I will be gifting him this Father’s Day to help Thomas put his own needs first for a change.

I know, if I asked Thomas, that he would say he doesn’t need anything for Father’s Day. He would love a card, featuring a personalised doodle from Daisy, but I want to give him something more this year. Being able to find a little time to look after yourself can be so good for your soul. I love nothing more than a face mask or a long soak in the tub at the end of a long day. I know for Thomas that escaping to the bathroom to trim his beard, or running down by the River, are two things that he loves to do to help feel better about himself.

We live in a small home, so space is at a premium, which is why this Father’s Day gift guide features space-saving products that will give my husband a chance to look after himself without using up lots of space. I’ve chosen items that I know he is going to love using and appreciate, throughout the year, not just for a short amount of time.

Father’s Day Gift Guide 2018

Father’s Day is almost upon us and I’ve been thinking about what to get for Thomas, and Ronald, my Father-in-law. Father’s Day is a great opportunity to say thank you to Thomas, for being a wonderful husband, and Ronald for being a wonderful Father and Grandfather. On my side, my own Father has passed away, and my Grandfather has too, so I try to make the best of the day and ensure that my husband has a lovely day. Today I want to share with you my Father’s Day Gift Guide for 2018 which I hope is packed full of ideas and inspiration!

Father's Day Gift Guide 2018 - Headphones, teddy and chocolate Father's Day card

My husband Thomas has been running for a few months now and has vastly impressed his fitness as a result. The Sol Republic Amps Air Wireless Earbuds in Black are absolutely fantastic as there are no wires for him to get tied up in while running. These headphones provide true wireless freedom with premium sound and are ideal for working out, and they have a built-in microphone for making telephone calls. These are compatible with all Bluetooth devices.

For Mother’s Day Daisy got me a lovely ‘Me To You’ bear and when I saw this personalised Tatty Teddy Bear I knew it would be perfect! It has been personalised to a ‘No 1 Daddy’ from Daisy and it is adorable!

No Father’s Day Gift Guide would be complete without mentioning a Father’s Day card! I chose Thomas this card from Thortful which has cards for all occasions. Best of all this one is personalised and contains individually wrapped mini chocolate bars inside!  You can use code KATYKICKER for 20% off your first purchase (not including postage). Valid until 8th June 2018.

That time of year is here once again, when heart-shaped chocolates, teddy bears, and an endless supply of affectionate cards dominate the aisles of the shops. Valentine’s Day is no longer a romantic day just for couples, with lots of people choosing to spend it with their friends and family… or even their pets. Unfortunately, some couples are unable to spend the special day together, whether that’s due to living in different cities or having to work away from home a lot. Not to worry, you can still make sure that a thoughtful gift reaches your significant other, no matter how many miles are separating the two of you.
