Avoid the cliches this Father’s Day

We all know the drill: flowers and smellies for Mother’s Day; bottles of whisky and cheesy mugs for Father’s Day. But if you really want to make the most important chap in your life smile this year, then cut the cliches and get him a gift that really suits him.

No two dads are the same, so tap into the essence of your pa and treat him to something that shows how well you really know him.

For the caffeine addict - a cold brew coffee maker

If your dad has multiple cups of coffee to get him through the day, then prepare him for the summer with a cold brew coffee maker. It’s the cool coffee trend that has been sweeping the nation and is perfect for those who are serious about flavour and process.

For the adventurous dad - an stand-up paddle boarding lesson

Paddle boarding is a lot of fun and something several generations of the same family can all learn to do together. Instead of sitting around the table together on June 16th, head to the sea and discover who’s got the best balance and who’s bound to get wet.

For the well-groomed papa - luxury cosmetics

Step away from the usual cliched Father’s Day gifts and get your dad something that shows how well you know him.

While most of us wouldn’t think twice about getting beautiful cosmetics for our mums, dads often get left out. But not any more, here at Heyland & Whittle we’ve produced a New Collection that is perfect for pampering your favourite men. From a Luxury 3-in-1 Wash to a Charcoal Beard Bar, we’ve got everything to keep your papa looking and feeling his best.

For the stressed dad - hot stone massage

Treat your dad to a hot stone massage this Father’s Day to thank him for all the taxi rides, last-minute help with homework and putting up shelves he’s done for you over the years. Dads can spend so much time doing things for the rest of the family that they don’t have time to relax, and warm volcanic stones are just the ticket to relieve any aches and pains he’s harbouring.

For the foodie - kitchen essentials

There’s no shortage of food-related gifts you can buy for your dad, but if he loves to cook get him the one thing he really needs - a good knife. It’s the most essential kitchen item and one he probably won’t spend money on himself, but it’ll take his creations to the next level and be a gift he’ll thank you for again and again.

And it’s not just biological dads that we should be celebrating this Father’s Day. Show the important men in your life what an impact they’ve made on you by shopping for gifts for stepdads, grandfathers and uncles here.
