- Sussex Special Candles
Sussex Special make one-of-a-kind highly scented boutique natural soy candles. Each fragrance has been created carefully to be unique and full of character. The candles come in these cute glass jars with lids that look great and are practical too.
I have chosen two different scents that I think are quite masculine or unisex at least. Ashdown Forest is a vigorous and simulating scent inspired by a fresh morning walk in the woods with scents of wild grown pungent peppermint, energising spearmint and pure and uplifting white tea. Enchanted Forest is Sussex Special’s signature classical scent with strong and pungent bergamot, aromatic rosemary, peppermint, fresh lavender, and vitalising geranium. Woodsy and rich!

- Magma London Fig Sea Salt Large Vegetable Wax Candle
Magma London creates innovative scented products that celebrate cultural histories and timeless designs. They make a range of interesting products like Magna Rocks, beautiful diffusers, and luxury scented candles. Their Fig Sea Salt Large Vegetable Wax Candle is refreshing and has a sharp scent of ocean freshness with notes of Mediterranean fruits – lemon, orange, and fig. The fruitiness combined with the sea salt is an amazing combination – invigorating and stimulating. The black and red design combined with the powerful scent makes this quite a masculine candle in my opinion so ideal for Father’s Day.
- Personalised Garden Beer Trug from The Personal Shop
The Personal Shop sells a range of personalised gifts and they have an impressive range of brilliant personalised gifts for Father’s Day. My favourite item is this Personalised Garden Beer Trug! Most dads like beer and this item would make such a good Father’s Day gift. Fill it with a selection of favourite beers and add a few snacks perhaps for a lovely and fun gift. You can have it personalised as you wish with up to 30 characters on each of the two lines. We went for “Pappa’s Beer” – “Don’t Touch!”. The trug is beautiful and well-made, and the internal dividers can be removed to make it suitable as a basket for other things too which is handy.
- Artisanal Bath Products for Men from Simply Soaperior
Simply Soaperior make a wonderful range of bath bombs and other bath treats. They make a few items that are particularly well-suited to men and the best-selling Shark Attack bath bomb is sure to be a hit. The mouth of the shark starts creating red froth as soon as it reaches the water which creates a really cool effect! Perfect for fans of the film Jaws!
They also make a whipped soap with a manly scent – Creed Eventus Whipped Soap Soufflé inspired by the fragrance Eventus. All products are lovingly handmade in Cornwall using skin safe and hydrating ingredients. I’ve tried a range of the products and am really impressed with the quality and the scents.
