Father’s day gift ideas

Sunday, June 16 is just around the corner, so not long to go till we get to pamper and spoil our fathers or grandfathers.
I’ve done a round-up of things my other half would like to receive as a father. This time I didn’t work on a budget but looked for things that are a great value, so here we go:

Two-Course Meal with Cocktail for Two at Marco Pierre White Steakhouse, City 

Enjoy culinary satisfaction with a two-course meal and cocktail at the Marco Pierre White London Steakhouse Co. City in London’s Square Mile. Marco Pierre White is one of the most renowned chefs around, being the youngest ever to receive a Michelin star three times. He can boast Gordon Ramsay as a protegee and his food is simply unrivalled in reputation and quality. Start with a welcome cocktail before tucking into two courses – a starter and a main – from a set menu. The menu is graced with British classics of finest quality meat, fish and classic cuts of quality steak, with vegetarian options available on request. A gastronomical experience to savour!

Luxury shampoo bar

The Shine Bar is a luxury shampoo bar developed by hairdresser Jonathan Harries to deliver professional hair care results with the convenience of an easy to use bar.


The bar formulation means no wasted product, no bulky plastic bottles and no mess, while the handy reusable storage tin makes it perfect for travel or to take to the gym. Formulated using naturally derived ingredients, the bar also lasts up to four times longer than a standard bottle of liquid shampoo.

Shine Bar creator Jonathan Harries, a hairdresser with over 30 years’ experience and owner of the Shine salon in Brighton, explains why he developed the product “I knew many of my clients would find the convenience of a shampoo bar appealing, and are always looking for ways to reduce their plastic consumption. But as a hairdresser it was important to me that there was no compromise on the results of a professional liquid shampoo- I had to create something that I would be happy to use in the salon.” Shine Shampoo Bar, £9.50 (75g), http://www.shineshampoobars.co.uk/

These are socks with a difference! This sock company helps protect some of the world’s most critically endangered animals (and critically endangered animal dads). With the socks you get a cute business card sized car with info, eg 40,000 Borneo orangutans left due to logging and palm oil ;-(.

The socks themselves are made from a beautifully soft and sustainable blend of bamboo and cotton, and come in five designs and two sizes, and retail at £12 a pair are certainly a special purchase and would be a nice idea as a Father’s Day gift.
