Your Father needs to look after his skin and the team over at grüum have exactly the right products to do just that! grüum offer monthly skincare kits which are delivered direct to the door. My Dad get’s someone else to buy his skincare products (usually Mum), so if yours is the same – take the hassle out of scouring the shops for his moisturiser and get it delivered to him instead!

To find out what kit is best for him they have this awesome survey. Once completed they’ll recommend a kit and within a few clicks it’s already on its way. From beard care to shaving, there’s a kit for every man!

Wonderful Whiskey

A gift with style & substance…

This Father’s Day, give Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select, the small batch, craft bourbon made at America’s oldest and smallest working distillery. The bourbon of choice for bartenders at the world’s most talked about bars, Woodford Reserve is the perfect gift for the contemporary, but understated father who has style and substance.

Heavy on the nose with faint vanilla and tobacco spice, the complexity of Woodford Reserve gives it a silky smooth, well rounded and almost creamy finish. Mix with sugar syrup, bitters and ice cubes, before stirring down and garnishing with orange twist to create an Old Fashioned. Thank Dad this Father’s Day with the cocktail that will never go out of style.

Stockists: Waitrose & Morrisons | RRP £31

For Father’s with a love of history you could try Old Forester. The only bourbon to be bottled before, during and after the Prohibition, Old Forester brings a heritage as rich as its tastes. Still produced by the same founding family, Old Forester is a gift for the family man, who likes his whisky with a history.

The high amount of rye in the bourbon means it is full bodied, with a hint of spice – great for sipping neat or making the traditional Whisky Smash cocktail. Old Forester’s rich but easy drinking flavour profile make it the perfect bourbon for the father who isn’t usually a whisky drinker but who is always keen to try new things.

Stockists: Tesco | RRP £30

Keep it organised with Knomo

Dad will thank you for this one…

O.k. so this has to be my favourite gift in the guide. Now as you know, I like to keep things organised…very organised. In fact I didn’t think I could get more organised. That was until I got my hands on this bag – OMG I think a little bit a pee came out when it arrived! Just look at all those pockets for organising stuff!

The bag featured here is the JAMES from Knomo, a UK based brand whose ethos is to ‘get life organised’. Knomo have indeed been able to design products which ‘get life organised’ but in a really stylish and sophisticated way. Their bags are perfect for anyone who travels and have a real top quality luxury feel to them. A gift from Knomo would certainly make any Dad organised and happy!
