Why should we JUST make an effort for our Father's on one day of the year only, when we should be making an effort all year around. My Dad means the world to me and like him, I'm a bit of a closed book, keeping my feelings locked inside and Father's Day gives us that opportunity to show how much we care for our Dads. So this year, why not ditch the one-time one-day gifts like aftershave, DIY handbook, gardening tools etc and opt for something more meaningful and lasting. Subscription boxes. Here are my top subscription services for Father's Day.
THE PERFUME SOCIETY (FRAGRANCE)
Discover, explore and enjoy this fragrance box for men. This box is packed with 13 men's aftershave samples plus some luxury grooming essentials from Elemis and Penthaligon's worth around £40 alone. For only £19, you can get this box delivered to your Father's door and is the perfect gift for scent lovers. Not only that but your father will have the rest of the year to trial all these amazing fragrances ready for you to buy the larger bottle for his Christmas present! To top it off...everyone who purchases The Scent of a Man Discovery Box between 20th May and 1st July will be entered into a prize draw to win one of the 16 featured fragrances.
HAWKINS & SHEPHERD (SHIRTS)
Hawkins & Shepherd have just launched their Shirt Subscription Service for their growing UK customer base, offering three packages Enthusiast, Executive and Essential.
