CHEERS TO DAD

BJ FO­LEY’S GIFT IDEAS FOR A HAPPY FA­THER’S DAY

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS: SALLY COAT ES

We have a lot to thank fa­ther­hood for. For ex­am­ple, David Beck­ham. Sure, he was a spunk as a young foot­ball star, but it was when he be­came a dad that he be­came a bona fide 10/10.

Of course, he’s got mil­lions to his name and more staff than fin­gers and toes re­duc­ing his parental stress lev­els, some­thing your dad prob­a­bly doesn’t have.

To­mor­row is the day when we not only apol­o­gise for caus­ing that stress, but help rem­edy it with thought­ful Fa­ther’s Day gifts. You know who’s not a hot dad? Don­ald Trump, and that lu­mi­nes­cent traf­fic cone glow isn’t help­ing mat­ters.

There’s a chance as he ma­tures your very own papa will also be­come cu­ri­ous about self-tan­ning, so for both your sake and his, it’ll be use­ful for him to have qual­ity prod­ucts and ad­vice on hand.

Bondi Sands has a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing fool­proof (or dad-proof).

It’s a grad­ual tan­ner so there won’t be any in­stant, ir­re­versible shocks and it smells like shav­ing cream, so his mates will be none the wiser.

Be­fore ap­pli­ca­tion, he’s go­ing to need clean skin and clear pores, so a long bath is in or­der. Bath mas­ters Lush Cos­met­ics have re­leased a spe­cial Fa­ther’s Day line and noth­ing says “dad” like a lim­ited-edi­tion bath bomb ... lit­er­ally.

He’ll need to shave, too, and Evo’s Uber­wurst Shav­ing Cream is de­signed for low ir­ri­ta­tion and max­i­mum nour­ish­ment.

He can fin­ish with a quick spritz of his favourite cologne, or, if you think he can do bet­ter, a new one.

My hot tip: if you love your boyfriend or hus­band’s cologne, don’t go the same for your dad. I think the rea­son­ing is clear.

You can’t go wrong with Bvl­gari.
