Fragrance has always made a great Father’s Day gift but if you want to add a little icing to the cake this year how about personalising the bottle? Burberry offer a complimentary monogramming service for their Mr. Burberry fragrance that accommodates up to three initials (you could even have ‘DAD’ if you like) at selected stores and via burberry.com. I had my own bottle personalised a while back as you can see. In a world where little touches matter and bespoke is where it’s at it’s well worth making the extra effort. You only have one dad after all.
The problem I have with many grooming boxes is that they don’t represent good value for money, the product sizes are stingy and the brands uninspiring. Thankfully, none of those things can be said of the new ‘Grooming Adventurer’ box from All Boxed Up and artist/designer Nik Thakkar (above).
It features eight, full-sized products, worth £150, for the bargain price of just £39.99 (+ p&p). There are some superb brands in there, too, like Cowshed, The Refinery, Recipe For Men and, one of my personal favourites, Polaar. What’s more, 10% of the profits go to The Albert Kennedy Trust, a great organisation that helps support young LGBT people who find themselves homeless, so by buying a box you won’t just look good you’ll be doing some good too. There are only 500 boxes available, though, so be quick!
