Father’s Day Gift Ideas
He’s a soppy soul, the modern dad. Happy to change nappies (70% of dads in the developed world get busy with the baby wipes as often as mums, according to Pampers – and they should know), keen to take over night feeds, and always taking time off for Nativity Plays. Pre-paternity leave dads might scoff, but it’s now a badge of blokey honour to weep copiously at a child’s birth and maybe even know a child’s shoe size. OK, I don’t actually know a father who even knows which shoes his children might need on any given day, but the message we’re getting from our customers is that dads are no longer in the dark ages when it comes to looking after their children.
When we launched The Handpicked Collection we quickly realised that men enjoyed a bit of spoiling just as much as women. So we put together a carefully chosen selection that comes into its own as Father’s Day gifts. We’ve over 100 presents for men to choose from, including Personalised Father’s Day gifts, so that you can make your present every bit as special as he is.
As well as the surprising research about nappies (Pampers, is it really true?) one thing that has surprised us is the product that has become our number one best-selling Father’s Day gift. For a while it looked as though the Wall-Mounted Wine Rack would win the day. Then the Personalised Ale started being gratefully quaffed. But the gift that has won the day is our British-made Gin & Tonic Shower Gel. Completely alcohol-free and surprisingly refreshing, perhaps it proves that fatherhood makes men more sober and responsible citizens!
