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

AD. 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.
