For the grooming obsessive
This refreshing and mildly foaming body wash is made in Denmark with 91% of the ingredients coming from a natural origin, including 43% certified organic and 23% local spring water, plus 1% of our own fragrance. The light salt spray and seaweed, hawthorn and beach rose scent is perfect for any man of the house.
For the gin lover

The gift set includes a Fiche Dó soy wax candle, a 20cl bottle of The Botanist Gin and The Botanist Gin Cocktail Recipe Book so dad can experience the scent and taste of Islay from home.
For the one with the sweet tooth
Little Moons are a delicious Japanese Ice Cream mochi dessert sold in Tesco, Waitrose, Harrods, Whole Foods and via Ocado. They are available to buy in bundles of lip-smacking flavours like Himalayan Salted Caramel, Match Green Tea, Madagascan Vanilla, Strawberries & Cream. There are 12 flavours in total and they’ve also just brought out two new cookie dough products. They are the perfect little treat to share and enjoy with your sweet-toothed day this Father’s Day.
For the mindful drinker
Recreating the essence of a rich and balanced spiced rum, this full-flavoured non-alcoholic spirit has notes of caramel, molasses and toasted nuts, and a generous finish of spiced vanilla flavours. Dad can enjoy this zero ABV beverage with a classic mixer or add to ginger beer to create a twist on the famous Dark ‘n’ Stormy.
For the wellness warrior
Whatever the goal, whether it be improving fitness, eating more healthily or being more mindful, this dynamic wellness journal is designed to help dad keep track of his progress. The intro pages are full of nutrition tips, exercises to increase muscle mass and practical fitness facts, while four dedicated and structured sections allow you to divide your progress between Personal Goals, Fitness, Diet, and Health and Care.
For the snacker
This snack-filed box contains a selection of tasty treats, perfect for any snack-happy dad, including the award-winning Yorkshire Parkin sticky ginger cake loaf, a Yorkshire Parkin biscuit box, baked with oatmeal and treacle, all-butter shortbread biscuits, a large traditional oat flapjack, baked with rolled oats, and a large, indulgent Belgian chocolate chip flapjack, baked with rolled oats and lots of chocolate chips. Yum!
For the workout fanatic
Treat your gym-addict dad to some new gym footwear that’s specifically designed to support and enhance movement this Father’s Day. Created using Primeblue performance fabric, made with Parley ocean plastic, not only are these trainers high performance, but they also do their bit for the planet too by helping to keep plastic out of our oceans.
For music maestro
Fill his ears with sweet music with the BeatsX wireless headphones. With 8 hours of battery, dad won’t be caught short on the commute when listening to his favourite podcast or 80s band. Just 5 minutes of charge will supply 2 hours of playback, so a last-minute plug-in won’t be an issue either.
For the book worm
One of rugby’s greatest coaches on his inspiring achievements, from back-to-back six nations triumphs to steering England to the 2019 Rugby World Cup final. This is a must-read for any rugby-obsessed dad.
