Need a last-minute gift for dad this Father’s Day? From fuss-free super-luxury skincare to a chilled-out massage in the Yorkshire Dales, the Spa Spies have got you covered. Because dads love spas as much as we do - they just may not know it yet…
Calling all worn out-looking dads needing some TLC… What could more indulgent than a little something from uber-luxury skincare brand Natura Bissé? Diamond Extreme Eye will work wonders on those well-earned (but equally disliked) bags. This rich cream hydrates and firms the skin while battling wrinkles - not that we don’t love those smile lines…
For the stressed-out dad…
Floatation Pod at Aquarias Spa, Whatley Manor (£55 for a 60-minute session or a course of 5 sessions for £200)
Who needs a man cave when you can escape to Whatley Manor’s new Floatation Pod? This dark, sound-proof tank is designed for REST (that’s Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy to you and me). Filled with over 500kg of magnesium-loaded Epsom salts mixed with 1,000 litres of water at body temperature, dads can simply close the lid and float to their heart’s content. No social media. No phone calls. No kids. Just absolute silence. You’re welcome.
For the WFH dad…
Aromatherapy Associates Atomiser Atomiser (£120); oils (10ml, £25 each)
The Atomiser, Aromatherapy Associates’ new waterless diffuser, disperses a micro-fine mist to wake your senses and boost your mood. Dads will love the oil’s masculine scents – from grounding Forest Therapy with cypress and pink pepper to De-Stress with its earthy Frankincense fragrance. The sleek, white ceramic design and soft halo light make it a stylish home-office companion for WFH dads – it doesn’t need cleaning either.
For the sea-faring dad…
ishga Men’s Marine Set (£73)
This beautiful sea-inspired skincare set from ishga will transport your dad straight to the coast. The anti-oxidant properties of Scottish seaweed and Hebridean spring water produce over 86 vitamins and minerals. The aroma is fresh and salty; the packaging simple and attractive. The range consists of an Exfoliating Face Wash, a Beard & Shave Oil and a Marine Cream moisturiser.
