The daddy of all gift ideas

With Fa­ther’s Day just round the cor­ner, Katie Wright se­lects the treats that are sure to im­press

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Beauty -

IT’S Fa­ther’s Day on Sun­day, the day when we thank our dads for all they’ve done for us.

If your old man is any­thing like mine, then he’s been — at var­i­ous times through­out the years — your per­sonal chauf­feur, dec­o­ra­tor, in­ter­est-free loan provider, giver of ad­vice, set­tler of sib­ling ar­gu­ments and se­cret weapon in pub quizzes.

For all that and be­yond, our dads de­serve an enor­mous amount of grat­i­tude, and more than just a card and a hug once a year.

So, why not treat pops to some­thing spe­cial from the groom­ing depart­ment to show him how much you care?

En­sure your favourite child sta­tus is sealed this Fa­ther’s Day, with one of these stylish pressie picks...
