Because we need to show some appreciation for those dad jokes we love to hate and hate to love!

Father’s Day takes place this Sunday and it’s the perfect opportunity to show the men that raised us how much we love them. From motivational chats to driving lessons and intervening in sibling disputes, I think we can all agree dads put up with a good deal and deserve to be treated – but why are they so hard to buy for?

If you’re struggling in the present department again this year, fear not as we have a gift guide that’ll be sure to spark some inspiration ahead of the weekend.


1. The practical approach












Achieving well-groomed modern facial hair has never been easier with the Remington Beard Boss (€19.99). You can control beard or stubble with ultimate precision and look sharper and cleaner than ever before. The Beard Boss has innovative capture trim blades which deliver a sharper cut with every glide.

Regular upkeep is essential in keeping facial hair looking stylish, comfortable and handsome. The Barba Beard Trimmer (€39.99) is the ideal tool. With advanced ceramic blades, the trimmer effortlessly cuts hair while the pop-up trimmer is ideal for shaping edges along with 40 minutes cordless use.

The Vacuum Beard and Grooming kit,  (€59.99) from Remington guarantees mess-free grooming. The built-in vacuum technology efficiently sucks away cut hairs so it keeps the sink mess-free and avoids stubble getting trapped inside the trimmer.
