Father’s Day is fast approaching and with it comes one of the biggest gift-giving dilemmas of the year. Socks? A tie? A new wallet? Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, especially when all you want to do is get him something that he’ll love.
Thankfully, ELEMIS has it covered as we’ve paired some of our most wanted men’s products with the latest page-turners from Harper Collins.
Grooming products may not be top of his list but we know that when a man finds a product he loves, he sticks with it. We don’t know about you but we also find that the men in our lives tend to “borrow” our ELEMIS products, so they may not be aware that there is an ELEMIS range specifically formulated for male skin. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce him to Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men.
Winner of Best New Anti-Ageing Cream For Men in the 2017 GQ Grooming Awards, this clinically proven formulation hydrates, firms and helps improve the appearance of wrinkles*. He’ll love the fast-absorbing texture and with actives such as Padina Pavonica, Ginkgo Biloba, and Abyssine, skin is left shine-free and replenished (perfect for post-shave). It’ll tick all his boxes for an easy-to-use and super-effective grooming product.
Once he’s applied this skincare hero, he can get a stuck in to the story of a different hero, Uhtred of Bebbanburg, in The Flame Bearer by Bernard Cornwell. Part of the bestselling series, The Last Kingdom (which has also been adapted for TV and which he has no doubt been binge watching), this tenth novel continues the epic saga which has been praised by George R. R. Martin, author and creator of Game of Thrones no less.
If your dad can’t put a book down once he’s started it, this thrilling tale set on the mean streets of New York, is for him. The Force by Don Winslow has been described as “The Godfather, only with cops,” by Stephen King, and is based on years of research inside the NYPD. Winslow has painted a compelling and vivid portrait of detective sergeant Denny Malone and his descent into corruption after speaking with real life police officers from all ranks about their lives and experiences.
After all the tension of a story that covers greed and violence, inequality and race, crime and injustice, retribution and redemption, your dad may want to sink into an Aching Muscle Super Soak bath. Formulated with aromatherapeutic extracts of Birch, Juniper, Clove, Alpine, Lavender, Wild Thyme and Blue Chamomile combined with Sea Salt, it eases tight muscles and soothes the mind. An ideal choice if he’s a sportsman too.
Finally, a murder mystery which may just keep him up all night as he races to the end. A Dark So Deadly by crime writer Stuart MacBride, follows DC Callum MacGregor who, following a career setback, fears he may never be put on a decent case again. Luckily, not only does he find himself embroiled in the biggest murder investigation his team have ever seen, it involves the discovery of a mummified body found in a local rubbish dump, which is potentially the work of a serial killer who is still at large.
If this intriguing yarn really does keep him up all night working through the clues, Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel is the product for him. Containing soothing White Willow, it can be applied morning and evening to reduce puffiness and hydrate the eye area but with its cooling roller ball it’s perfect for applying intermittently throughout the day to instantly energise and refresh. Pair it with Anti-Fatigue Day Cream for a gift we think any man would appreciate.
In fact, our Anti-Fatigue Day Cream is one of the many fabulous formulations included in the Luxury Travel: Essentials For Him. This luxury travel size collection has everything he’ll need for face and body, wherever life takes him (even if it is only to the gym or a weekend away). Skin Soothe Shave Gel, Deep Cleanse Facial Wash, Sharp Shower Body Wash, and Instant Refreshing Gel complete the collection, all slickly presented in a Misha Nonoo designed bag.
And if you can’t decide what to get him, how about The House of ELEMIS Gift Card? With this, he can buy some valuable time for himself and enjoy a treatment, or stock up on products at The House of ELEMIS in Mayfair.
