Every year I swear I will never do another Fathers Day gift guide but every year you lot tell me it’s really helpful so here we go with the 2018 remix of the best options for blokes around!


First up let’s get them smelling good and treating them to one of our favourite brands for skincare – Elemis. Did you even realise they did guys stuff? Me neither until recently!

My husband works away a lot, so the travel essentials kit is a perfect choice for him and it has the added Brucie bonus of an exclusive Lily & Lionel wash bag which is both suitably manly and practical at the same time.

The kit contains Foaming Shave Gel (100ml), Deep Cleanse Facial Wash (50ml), Daily Moisture Boost (50ml), Sharp shower Body Wash (100ml) and Instant Refreshing Gel (20ml).

It’s a great piece of kit, and you can buy one here with a cracking 20% off using the code LILYANDLIONELXELEMIS 

Once the man in your life is all baby soft and buff, it’s probably a good time to splash on some style in the scent of the latest John Varvatos aftershave – Artisan Pure.

The bottle is eye-catchingly structured and chunky funky to hold – deffo manly enough for any man!

The scent is bursting with citrusy vibes and heady wood wafts inspired by the Mexican hills.That’ll do for me. So delicious it’s hard not to nick it for yourself! Buy it here 



If off the shelf just won’t do, go bespoke for the man in your life with the Design Your Own Fragrance collection for men from The Perfume Studio.

Tailor made in a few easy steps, this is the choice for the man who likes to be individual and stand apart with his scent.

To go for the most practical gift, think every day, twice a day for a gift he will really get the most of. Oral-B’s super tech electric toothbrush even links up to an app to monitor his oral hygiene habits to keep his gnashers tip top!

With it’s groundbreaking position detection, it even shows the right position, for optimum brush action. Could it be any easier? This one is better than half price right now at Boots! -50%!

For the drinker Dads out there, a Craft Beer Box does the job. A set of five carefully curated beers, a branded glass and some nibbles, what more can a bloke ask for? Think this one speaks for itself!

Well, if he is tee-total like the men in my life, a great alternative to the alcoholic option is the refreshing intro of Botonique, available in one click from amongst others, Waitrose – a crisp dry white de-alcoholised wine so you can sip away the summer with no worry of hangovers or misdemeanours lol.

It’s tagline is ‘pace and replace’ because not only do you get all the taste of a full bodied glass of vino but it its packed with Prelixir nutrients to boot!

Winner winner chicken dinner!

Now, I don’t think you can beat a nice big chunky man’s watch, but if you want style without the crazy price tag, Rotary is a solid, reliable name in timepieces and I picked out this one for my Dad.

You can browse the range here and take your pick of the site for 10% off for Father’s Day watches.

Konoc is a cult label in handmade British leather accessories, and their Finch Ring personalised leather keyrings are a classy choice for the Dad with understated style.











Browse their site here and I challenge you not to end up sneaking something for yourself too, like I did as you can see you can have anything you like embossed.


So my old man resembles Mickey Mouse with headphones on his noggin playing his tunes and believe me, it’s not his best look so this year, he is getting his cool on with the coolest wireless earbuds I’ve seen anywhere! Amps Air are sweat and rain resistant so workouts and outdoor runs are not a problem.

Hundred percent, I want a pair for the gym they come in black or rose gold, and it is nearly my birthday! Browse and buy here…. 


Ticking the shaving box, American Crew have a rather manly little ensemble available in the shape of their gift set. Tea tree 3-in-1, followed by Precision Shave Gel and topped off with the all-in-one face balm, it’s a nippy little trio, available from reliable source John Lewis, easy peasy. 


Recently, we were brought right up to date with an Amazon Fire TV stick and it has been brilliant, so my lucky Dad is going to love that we got the new Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD for him too!

No excuses for sticking to the UK Gold channel anymore – except those Del Boy reruns never get old! – and he will be spoilt for choice with over 200,000 movies, TV episodes and channels to choose from. Welcome to our new world Dad!

Last but def not least, if you fancy splashing the cash and treating him to the latest in suction tech, it surely has to be the latest, greatest Dyson V10? We were gifted one recently and it’s bloody awesome so I highly recommend it if your Dad likes to be gadget guy with the most fiendish machines on the market.

So there you have it for 2018 – covering the bargain, the treat and luxury, I hope you found some inspo here, but whatever you do, don’t forget to go and get the basic – a card!

Until next time lovelies!
