Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and are having a great start to the weekend. I've been out and about all day and the weather has been absolutely gorgeous - so let's hope it stays like this! I thought today I would share with you a Fathers Day Gift Guide in collaboration with Debenhams. I don't think I have ever posted a Fathers Day gift guide before so I was very excited when Debenhams wanted to collaborate on this post and with Fathers Day just around the corner I thought this would be the perfect time to share this post with you all. I love putting gift guides together and I would love to do more moving forward (for all occasions) - buying gifts for all the special people in my life just brings me so much joy! Plus, all of my previous gift guides have always had such lovely feedback from you all so that motivates me even more to create them.
June is a pretty good month in terms of gifts for my Dad! His Birthday falls on the 12th June, my Dad is called Antonio (every calls him Tony) and he celebrates St Antonio Day on 13th June and then Fathers Day is always the week after - Papa Meola gets spoilt haha.
For this years Fathers Day Gift Guide I have teamed up with Debenhams to bring you a few of my favourite pieces from their online gift ideas section and my theme was focused all around that 'dapper dad' in your life. Debenhams are always one of my go-to shopping destinations because there is literally everything you could possibly need under one roof (or online of course!)...plus, I just LOVE their Beauty Card and collecting points in the beauty department...it helps justify those cheeky splurges haha.
A shaver on Fathers Day is one of those typical yet super necessary gifts that I know a tonne of Dads are going to love. Get a refreshing, close yet gentle shave with the Philips AquaTouch which also has a super sleek design. This is for the dapper dad who enjoys the comfort of a wet shave, with the convenience of a quick dry shave. The AquaTouch offers 10x more protection than a regular blade, while still giving you the closeness of a refreshing wet shave. It has a 5-direction flexing head which corporates AquaTec which makes it completely waterproof and the compact design makes it perfect for travel. Philips is one of the most unbeatable shaving brands around and I know my Dad is going to absolutely love this.
Colognes and Aftershaves are another gift that will always go down a treat and this one by Vince Camuto smells absolutely incredible! Admitantly, I have never tried or gifted any Vince Camuto products before but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. This scent literally transports you to a European paradise and for an Eau de Toilette it packs a punch with parts of woody notes of cedar and pine alongside comforting lavender and just-sweet-enough juniper. The gift set includes a 100ml Eau de Toilette, a deodorant and a travel-sized fragrance also - all presented in this luxurious and distinctive blue box with silver accents.
Now, this is probably the gift I was most excited about because I know it is something my Dad has wanted for quite some time. This Large Watch Box is part of the RR.John Rocha exclusive range and is perfect for keeping valuables safe and organised. The box itself has a brown leather-effect with a rich red lining which features 10 compartments and watch cushions. If you want to use the box for more than storing just watches you could even remove the cushions and use the compartments to store some of your favourite pieces of jewellery, for example, rings, bracelets and so on.
I hope you all enjoyed my Fathers Day Gift Guide in collaboration with Debenhams. If you are still thinking of that special gift, I hope you found some inspiration in this post. Everything featured is easily accessible in-store or online, just make sure you give yourself enough time for delivery. So, we've covered grooming and accessories, however, I would also like to mention the Hammond & Co by Patrick Grant clothing line that Debenhams stock. Established in 1776 the line consists of beautifully cut suits, formal clothing and stylish casual wear; bringing the essence of Savile Row - the epitome of men's tailoring to their own menswear collection. I could literally browse the collection online for hours - next time I am at my local Debenhams I am definitely taking my Dad in to preview the collection, I know he will absolutely love it! If you have any additional gift ideas pretty please share them in the comments below as I would love to hear them.
I am actually heading to Dubai today and we will be celebrating my Dad's Birthday, Parents Wedding Anniversary and Fathers Day whilst we are away - I am sooo excited! If you would like to see what I get up to on my travels make sure you are following me on Snapchat (@SophiaMeola) as I will definitely try to snap vlog as much as I can! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!
Lots of Love
