My poor husband works so hard to make sure our family are happy and he often gets overlooked. Sure he’s a grumpy git at times and his toilet aim could use a little work, but he always puts us first. He doesn’t get out much and his Xbox has a layer of dust from neglect, but he never tires of sleeping bunnies or wrestling with Lewis.
Father's day usually falls around our anniversary so we never really do much, but this year I wanted to make it special by putting together some things he’d love to make him feel a bit more appreciated. Here are some of the things I’m including in case you’re stuck for gift ideas. I’m sure your hubby has plenty of socks already!
I’m almost disappointed Steve has fallen in love with these as now I have to share, but Harriet the creator is so lovely I’m happy to support. These are little one-use eye masks that heat up for 15 mins once opened and give off the nicest jasmine scent. Spacemask = the best sleep ever! What parent doesn’t need more sleep? Spacemasks are £15 for 5.
Yes you read that right. Dust. For your nuts. I’m no testicle expert but sweaty balls can’t be fun right? Eliminate chafing and stay fresh for £4.99.
A YEAR OF DATES
We were given these recently and they are amazing! We all know how easy it is to get stuck in a rut when it comes to date night, but these beauties can help with that. 52 individually wrapped date ideas colour coded for going out, staying in etc. Such a simple yet lovely idea. Prices range from £25-£29
COCO CHOCOLATIER GIN AND TONIC CHOCOLATE
We are lucky enough to have these made locally and the flavours are to die for. Steve is a gin man so this is right up his street. He might even share! £4.50 for this beauty.
WILLOW AND PLUM NETTLE SOAP
This is another of my favourites that the whole family now uses. Is anything sacred? Steve suffers really dry skin and was guilty of using harsh soaps, but this has really saved his skin. If it keeps his skin happy then I’ll gladly share. This is £6 and seems to last forever.
Naturally a bathboard had to feature. One of my favourite purchases of all time and another that Steve steals so I’ve included a beer board in the hope he might leave mine alone. These have a slot for candles, a tablet and a beer but are great for snacks and books too, starting at £23.
ANATOMICALS FACE MASK
Anatomicals face masks. These little beauties have given us so much fun and many a silly selfie. Self care is for men too and this brand is amazing for reasonably priced body care with hilarious names. These masks are only £1 each and stockists can be found on their website.
So that’s my little box of gift ideas for Steve and I think he’ll love it. He really deserves a treat. Do you have any novel ideas to add? Do you agree men are much harder to buy for? Drop me a comment and let me know what you think.
Champagne and Snotty Noses
