Fab (bloke approved) Father’s Day gifts

OK, I realise your kids will probably be making a card for their dads this Father’s Day (June 20), and quite right too. But if you would like to treat him to something else, too (either from them or yourself), here are some suggestions – they’ve all been road tested on Man of the House, so they’re 100% male approved.

Clinique Happy for Men Groom Happy Set. I love the smell of this cologne and after shave balm – light wood notes spiked with citrus, very manly. (£33, available from John Lewis)

A gorgeous photo book from PhotoBox (from £19.99) – you (or your children) choose the pictures and the captions to make a really personal and lovely gift, simples.

Some rather yummy (and very masculine) pampering products. The Father’s Day Collection from Elemis includes full size Ice Cool foaming shave gel, Deep Cleanse Facial Wash, Energising Skin Scrub and Daily Moisture Boost, all in a stylish black wash bag (£25, from timetospa).

A Thorntons chocolate football shirt, iced with a personal message (£4.49). Well, it IS the World Cup.

And a bottle of single malt whisky. Buy them a bottle of Talisker, The Singleton of Dufftown or Dalwhinnie (available from Oddbins) – and they'll get two VIP passes to a free malt whisky master class at 20 locations around the country.
