Between coining the infamously named ‘Muggy Mike’ and his (ever so slightly worrying) love of cows, Chris Hughes quickly became one of our fave contestants on last year’s Love Island. That’s why we were super-excited to find out what he’s planning to get his pa, Paul, for Father’s Day. After some disastrous buys in the past (watch the vid to get the lowdown), Chris has come a long way with his present picking, and he’s ready to impart that wisdom on those of us who are feeling a bit stuck. So forget about socks, pants and slippers – poor dads, aye! – and find out about the pressies that’ll really make him smile…
The daytime fragrance
If you wanna get your dad something he’s really gonna love, you can’t go wrong with a good fragrance, and Diesel Only The Brave is a fave among the fellas. It’s fresh on first spritz, which makes it perfect for the mornings, and dries down to warm, spicy base notes of amber and leather accords – très masculine! Nice pick, Chris!
Men need moisture, too
If you’re on a bit of a tighter budget, Chris has got that covered, too. Skincare might not be top of your pop’s shopping list, but it’s a great thing for you to treat him to – especially if you know your stuff. Keep it simple and go for a good quality anti-ageing moisturiser like L’Oreal Men Expert Vita Lift 5 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. With Pro-Retinol (a powerful anti-wrinkle ingredient), your dad will be looking fresh-faced in no time…
The night-time fragrance
Musk is a must for the evening scent. Chris has opted for Hugo Boss BOSS Bottled Night EDT (a great choice), which has musk in its base, along with warming notes of sandalwood and Louro Amarelo wood. These deep scents are balanced with softer top and heart notes of lavender, African violet and jasmine – he’ll LOVE it.
If your dad’s a bloke with a beard, a really good quality razor will make his day. Chris knows that when you’re shaving, convenience is key. That’s why he’s giving his dad the Philips AquaTouch Wet and Dry Electric Shaver. The Aquatec seal on the product means he can shave in the shower if he wants to and shave dry as normal. For a close, clean shave and easy-to-clean blades, this is the one.
