Father’s Day 2016 is less than a fortnight away and will be here before you know it. Every year disappointed Dads are greeted with the same old gifts they’ve been getting for the last 20 years, be it socks, boxers or a boring book. But now there’s hope, FIT Skincare have put together the ultimate list of what your Dad really wants. Yes – it’s expensive and even sometimes outrageous but one guarantee is, he will not be disappointed. You may even get a glimmer of genuine graciousness.
Braun Series 7 799cc-7 - £329.99
As we predicted towards the tail end of 2015 the beard is heading into a recession period. The catwalk’s championed the clean-shaven style this season, however, claiming the beard is dead is a bit hasty. Beards are definitely lessening in size but it seems ‘the shorter long beard’ is going to dominate the mainstream in 2016.
Keep your Dad on trend this year with the Braun Series 7 799cc-7. Using Intelligent Sonic Technology with 10.000 micro-vibrations per minute, the new Braun Series 7 reads your face and adapts to the density of your beard. The adaptability of the shaver head and individually floating foils and trimmer are mounted on a pivoting head that cuts hairs as close as 0.05mm.
The look he needs, longer than stubble but shorter than a beard. This electric razor will guarantee precise control making shaving less of a chore and more of a treat.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H8 Black - £399
Even if you’re Dad claims he doesn’t listen to music anymore, get him a pair of Beoplay H8’s to reinvigorate his out-dated collection. Bang & Olufsen introduced their first headphone, U70, back in 1978. Not many audio manufacturers can claim that many years of experience on the market. This means that principles introduced nearly four decades ago have been refined and developed further ever since.
Creating exquisite products is, of course, a matter of defining how they look, and how they work. But also how they feel. The sense of real and carefully selected leather. Of lambskin clad memory foam that gently rests on your ears. Carefully sun-polished and anodised aluminum that feels responsive to the touch. That is what you can expect from Beoplay H8, and that is why Bang and Olufsen pride themselves in calling this, not only the most advanced headphone they have ever made, but simply, the best.
