I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day fills me with dread when it comes gifting. These days, we all pretty much purchase what we want when we want, men especially. However, the one area dads are not usually good at is self-care. We ladies I have learnt that looking after ourselves is not being selfish but simply an act of kindness to self. Men on the other hand (many but not all) still align looking after their image with care as being ‘unmanly’. Guys a little less Wolverine and bit more Morris Chestnut or George Clooney would not go amiss. I’ve put together a list of self-care and outdoors fun Father’s Day gift ideas.
Boxing Partner & Gloves
Help dad kit out his own outdoor gym by gifting him a boxing partner and gloves. He can get fit and let off some steam at the end of the day. Gallant’s 5.5ft Free Standing Boxing Punch Bag With Target is just the ticket. It can be used for boxing, kick-boxing, practicing a martial art, or as another home cardio tool RRP £149. Features include:
- PU Grain Leather
- 5cm Thick EPE Foam Sheet
- Shock Absorption Micro-Fiber highly padded filling
Bubble of London Hot Tub
Hot tub in da house! Bubble London offers a variety of packages. Let’s be honest we can hook dad up AND enjoy it as well, can can’t be mums? After all he may get lonely all on his own.

installs the hot tub at your home. They can be rented all over London, for a day, a weekend of a week! The 4/6 seater hot tubs are easily installed in a living room, a terrace or a garden 7 days a week!
