Father’s Day is coming up soon for my UK readers, and if you haven’t bought your gift yet, then check out my recommendations below for great last-minute presents!
Looking after your beard
Quarantine has been a time when I’ve been growing my beard out, and as the rest of the StyleCartel team has seen on Zoom, it’s mighty impressive. But now there comes the issue of how to look after it and nurture it. I’ve recently started using Bulldog skincare products, and I can’t think of anything better.
Bulldog are a step above the rest when it comes to skincare products. The packaging is made from renewable sources and is recyclable, and ALL their products are free from microbeads and are never tested on animals, certified by Cruelty Free International. Their ranges are made for all types of skin types; such as sensitive and oily, meaning there is always something for someone.
They have just released their newest gift set just in time for Father’s Day, called ‘For the Bearded Dad’. It contains the Original Beard Shampoo & Conditioner, Original Beard Oil, Original Beard Wax, Original Beard Balm and their specially designed Beard Comb.
The past few months have been a great time for people to learn a new hobby or attempt to take a passion of theirs further. Some have been cooking, others have been learning a new skill like DJing or music production; and others have taken up photographer. Most smartphones these days have a good camera as part of the phone, but for those looking to take their photos to the next level, check out the Canon EOS 250D.
Easy to use, the EOS 250D is the world’s lightest DSLR with a movable screen. Its versatility makes it the perfect camera to use for everyday shots of people and places, and its lightweight design makes it perfect for travel too. It was also voted into TechRadars’ top beginner DLSR cameras for 2020, so you know there is industry backing behind this camera too.
Question – what do you buy the man who has everything? Answer – a gift experience to do something out of this world.
Virgin experience days offer a variety of experiences across the UK at any budget. From driving experiences, adventure days out and fine dining vouchers; you’ll be sure to find something. All vouchers can be extended by 6 months for free due to the covid-19 crisis, so you can still use these when things return to normal.
This Cannabis Hamper is actually the first of it's kind to be released in the UK. The company behind this is Body and Mind Botanicals, a British brand founded by a team of cannabis experts on a mission to bring the health and well-being benefits of legal cannabis to as many people as possible. The set contains two pouches of the brand’s signature Organic Cannabis Tea, in aromatic Original and refreshing Peppermint editions, a delicious Cannabis Dark Chocolate Bar, Cannabis Steak Rub, Piri Piri Cannabis Seasoning and a Body and Mind Botanicals Mug.
The hamper delivers the intrinsic health and well-being benefits of legal cannabis, all without the high. Body and Mind Botanicals’ products have been shown to help soothe stress and anxiety, boost low mood and promote a good night’s sleep, which is essential in order to maintain a strong immune system. They have also been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which may help with pain relief.
It is advised to consult a GP before taking dietary supplements, and to leave a two-hour window between taking CBD and medication. For medication that carries a grapefruit warning, a four-hour window is advised. CBD products are not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
All of Body and Mind Botanicals’ products are independently lab tested and contain below 0.2% THC, which is the legal maximum.
