June is a busy month in our house.
We have six family birthdays (one of those is a 21st) to budget for, with three in the space of one week.
I always feel for Hubby and my Dad as Father’s Day always seems to get almost forgotten as it always falls on the third Sunday in June. This year I have planned Sebby’s birthday party for the weekend after, so that they get a day dedicated to them.
Sadly, working in retail, Hubby has to work on Father’s Day but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it special for him as he works hard to support the family.
Parental roles have shifted in recent years, with Dad’s getting more involved in day-to-day care, sometimes after a long day at work and are often the first person we turn to in times of trouble, with this relationship continuing long into adulthood.
What is Dad to us?
- Tech Support
- Toy builder & fixer
- Spider catcher
- Wasp killer
- Shoulder carrier
- Bad joke teller
- DIY Expert
- Taxi service
- Support Network
- Gives the best cuddles
- BBQ King
Whenever I ask Hubby, or my Dad, what they want for Father’s Day, they always say nothing and neither are a fan of clutter, so what do you get the man that has everything and wants nothing as a gift?
Gift idea’s for Father’s Day
Braun Series 3 ProSkin Shaver
Why not give Dad an upgrade he will use and whether he has a beard to be proud of, or is clean-shaven, Braun shavers and stylers combine state-of-the-art technology with a sleek design, so no matter what his style, they make the morning easy?
The Braun Series 3 Shave and Style captures more hair in the first stroke, meaning Dad can shave with greater efficiency and skin comfort than ever before.
This 3-in-1 solution gives the freedom of choice between a clean shave and a precise beard style with one device. Established ProSkin technology pairs up with a set of changeable beard trimmer attachments in Braun’s S3 Shave&Style range with their cutting edge technology and premium craftsmanship work to provide sharp beard styles and the utmost precision.
The shaving head attachment works in straight, intuitive strokes so there’s no need to circle over the same spot twice, helping to minimise skin irritation. The perfect tool for the man in your life who seeks freedom of choice, without the compromise of a close, comfortable shave. For trying a stubble or beard look? Just switch the shaving head for the trimmer head, plus one of the 5 combs, and you can precisely trim between 1 and 7mm. Great results that are even, exact, reliable and repeatable.
New figures show we are continuing to spend less money on buying things, and more on doing things and this is certainly true in our house.
Last year my Dad did a Flight Simulator Experience Day and thoroughly enjoyed taking the controls of a Boeing 737, whereas Hubby has thrown himself out of a plane at 15,000ft, done a bungee jump, ridden in a power boat and hurled himself down zip lines, so I know that adrenalin sports are for him.
Admiral Bone Handle 3-Piece Bar Set
For the Dad that is always entertaining, the Admiral Bone Handle 3 piece bar set is an elegant addition to any drinks cabinet. Made of gleaming stainless steel with smooth, white bone handles. Includes a sturdy bottle opener, traditional corkscrew with a three turn index and a handled double jigger to ensure perfect measurements when making perfect cocktails.
You could even team with his favourite tipple, to make the gift extra special!!
