Sunday the 21st of June will mark Father’s Day here in the UK.
If you have a fussy husband as I do, who is not content with the easy and practical gift of a set of boxers, booze or a hearty meal, then you may want to consider these three alternatives as possible gifts.
Hello Hungry liquid meals in a box.
I was sent the three versions of Hello Hungry to sample and review a few weeks back. It was during the very stressful month of May (I wrote about in my previous post) and I was feeling rotten with repeated throat infections and colds. I used the drinks not as lunches but as mid-morning snacks. Very handy and packed with healthy stuff your body needs “for survival in the office(or in my case, school) jungle“, the drinks gave my mornings a boost and dare I say, helped my compromised immune system survive the stress?
I was not too partial to the tomato and basil version(personal taste, nothing to do with the product) but I loved the flavour of the other two. The mango, spinach and peach version was right up my street and the strawberry, carrot and beetroot one left me craving for more.
Hubby was impressed too with the presentation and the possibility of a healthy alternative to a rushed lunch of soggy sandwich and crisps so I think this would be definitely a winner as a possible Father’s Day present with a twist(of beetroot!).
If your think your hubby or father could benefit from the same treatment, make sure to put in a pre-order, the product is about to be launched in the UK.
Hands(or rather, feet up) if your hubby is like mine when it comes to physical appearance, cleanliness and hygiene and slightly exasperates you by spending more time in personal grooming than you do!
Mine is and although I love a good looking and lovely smelling man, I always end up buying him the statutory(but not very exciting) aftershave or cologne.
But not this time, ladies, not this time!
This year, hubby is getting his own MICRO-Pedi grooming gadget, which promises to be the latest “ground-breaking grooming tool” and will hopefully leave him with smooth and lovely looking heels. For those torrid Greek summer days at the pool, of course!
The set usually retails at £34.95 but as a special Father’s Day offer, it will sell for £19.95 only. Check your nearest chemist or the company’s website for the offer.
British Tea Lovers, a new online tea shop that opened in 2015, has designed and created a limited edition Father’s Day gift. This beautifully designed tea tin comes with a special message on the top For A Special Dad and would make a lovely and thoughtful gift for any tea-loving father out there!
The packet of 100% Ceylon loose leaf black tea would look great on the kitchen top. Where they can find it easily and make themselves a lovely cup of tea, of course :-).
The great news is that I have one packet to give away to a lucky and well deserving father!
