Is it just me, or are men DIFFICULT to buy for!? Even choosing a gift for my teenage son is getting tougher. With Father’s Day fast approaching, I’ve rounded up some fabulous present ideas. From grooming kits to chocolate treats, I’ve put together a few fabulous finds from small independent businesses to help you on that search for the ultimate man gift.
For the Chocoholic
Cocoa Delicious ~ Handmade luxurious gifts including such delights as this solid milk chocolate game controller, or these mouth-watering Artisan Hot Chocolate stirrers: A deliciously indulgent solid piece of couverture chocolate is moulded onto a wooden spoon, ready to be dunked and stirred into a mug of warm milk, featuring an innovative menu of flavours including signature boozy tipples. The chocolate CD uses to create these yummy treats is carefully sourced from producers who are proud to be a part of sustainable cocoa cultivation and community programs in the West African cocoa growing communities.
