12 of the best grooming gifts for dads

8th Jun 18 | Beauty

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


Fathering Sunday (as no one called it, ever) falls on June 17 this year, 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 more, 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…
