Father's Day Gift Ideas

It’s mental health awareness month this May, but we’ve also been thinking about dad’s everywhere as father’s day is quickly approaching. And we thought we would combine two of our favourite things fathers & mental health. This one goes out to all the father’s we know / have who never take any time for themselves to unwind and relax. This was the perfect opportunity to round up some of our favourite Irish gifts and wellness experiences that would make the perfect gift for those father's who need a little nudge to unwind and dive into a little bit of self care this fathers day.

Finnlough Spa & Wellness Trail

Finnlough well known for the iconic bubble dome rooms dotted within a beautiful natural setting. Why not take dad away for some nature therapy located very close to the beautiful Donegal. You can book dad in to stay in one of the see through bubble domes where he can become one with nature, and observe the stars through a see through ceiling at night time. But possibly the best part of the retreat is its beautiful spa trail where dad can enjoy hot tubs, saunas & cold plunge therapy amongst the wilds of nature. Truly a one of a kind experience.

Ground Deep Sleep Ritual 

Ground is a very special brand originating in Cork, created by Peigin Crowley who has an extensive back ground in the world of spa's. She has poured all of her experience as well as new learnings into her brand Ground. Oozing with warmth and with her mission to use wellness treatments to holistically address such things as anxiety, insomnia, burnt out and gut health. We would highly recommend her deep sleep ritual bundle to assist any father's out there who are struggle to relax, and getting a good nights rest. This bundle is full to the brim with natural ingredients and essential oils will help every dad out there prepare themselves for a night of deep sleep.

Irish Mineral Rich Seaweed Bath Experience 

Did you know Ireland has access to some of the best seaweed in the world and that seaweed had a number of benefits for anyone eating it. But it has even better benefits for when it’s applied to the skin. Such as anti-inflammatory effects and is super for sensitive skin types and skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. Seaweed does wonders to aging skin by promoting tissue regeneration, increasing skin elasticity and micro circulation. So if you can’t bring your father to the sea this father’s day why not bring the sea to him with a fresh seaweed bath from wild irish seaweed, a family owned company from Co. Clare offering bags of fresh dried seaweed for bathing in. Supplied as dried seaweed in a paper bag, all dad needs to do is add it to a hot bath and he’s off.

Sauna & Pints 

Nestled in the heart of Dublin 7 in a yard just outside of the Clarkes City Arms bar is a most unexpected experience. You really wouldn’t think it when your passing by but there is a gorgeous spa experience inside, consisting of several round wooden barrel saunas and ice cold plunge pools. If you looking for a way to bond with your father on father’s day while doing something unexpected and a little off the beaten track why not take dad to outcast sauna in Dublin 7. Not only would it make for great day out together there are a whole heap load of health benefits from saunas including pain relief, skin health, immune boosting and improved circulation. And you can finish the day off with a creamy pint of the good stuff next door when you’re finished.

Olfactory Wellbeing Experience

If your looking to conjour up a bit of nostalgia and give a gift of wellbeing for your father this fathers day. We would highly recommend the turf fragranced candle from the home moment. The fragrance itself takes inspiration from the unique smell of an Irish turf burning fire which fathers across Ireland would have fond memories of from the past. A beautiful combination of cedar wood, vanilla, moss and amber. Encouraging dad to take moment to unwind this father’s day but lighting a turf fragranced candle and tuning into a crackling fire sound scape accessibly by a scannable QR code on the product packaging. Let him take his mind off things and melt into the present moment.
