A personalised message can also be added to the inside of the book.

new cookery school: Sauce by The Langham

It’s the perfect gift for the ‘foodie’ dad, someone who has a penchant for pies and pints (the classy kind), or frankly someone who yearns for a bit of a challenge. Plus nothing better than the giving the gift of knowledge.

The perfect class for Father’s Day would be, ‘The Modern British Tavern – Pub Favourites from The Wigmore’ and is a full day class (10am to 4pm) learning the best of British pub food with Chef James Hawley including his famous pie, finishing with a pint in the pub.

There has been a lot of focus over recent years on men’s mental health and wellbeing and mindfulness is a life skill that promotes this mental wellbeing. I develop and conduct Mindfulness courses for emotional resilience in the workplace and community. My signature course is called Mindfulness Skills for a Balanced Life and is based on scientific evidence and Positive Psychology.

Science confirms that the practice of sitting and letting go of thoughts not only induces the body’s natural relaxation response, but can also shrink the brain’s stress centre, strengthen the immune system, weaken the expression of harmful genes, and increase your cancer-fighting cells by 50%.

A course in Mindfulness makes a unique gift for a Dad you love and care about. The course is suitable for ages 14 – 94 and covers the following areas:

  • Why your body and brain respond to stress as they do and what to do about it
  • How mindfulness can help you manage both physical and emotional pain, including strong anxiety and panic
  • How to relax, sleep better and improve your brain’s capacity to focus and concentrate, making you more productive and creative at work and study
  • How to befriend yourself with kindness and compassion, becoming your own best friend and letting go of unhelpful judgments of self and others
  • How to engage with positive emotions to enhance your optimism and happiness

Mindfulness Skills For A Balanced Life runs at regular intervals throughout the year. Your readers may wish to purchase a gift certificate that Dad can use at a time that suits him. Go to mindcoachingaustralia.com.au/event/mindfulness-skills-for-a-balanced-life-weekend-workshop-7/ to read more about my current course.


Comments: A Sharesight subscription makes a great gift for dads. He can login, add his shares, and then track his portfolio from anywhere in the world. A thoughtful gift and lets him spend more time with his family, instead of manually tracking his investments in a spreadsheet or ledger:



Award-winning, gourmet macarons in both sweet and sweet and savoury flavours. These macarons were placed in the Hollywood swag bags of 50 Oscar’s winners and nominees this February, during the Oscars’ weekend. Slightly crunchy on the outside and soft inside, they are sure to delight the father in your life.

He’s been there from the start: he’s never left your side, he knows (or pretends to know) all the answers— according to his own ‘dad rule book’ obviously—and he’s the one who will go to extraordinary lengths to make it all better. He’s your dad, your uncle dad, big brother, cousin, mentor and deserves to be spoilt this Father’s Day. Luckily Woolworths has everything you need to slay it in the gift department!

It takes a fair amount of multitasking to go from work into dad-mode, so make it easier on him—especially if he’s not the best at juggling—by helping him look the part. Great for the office or social occasions, Woolies has a fashion-forward selection of suiting, knitwear, coats and jackets – perfectly practical as well as on trend for this chilly season. And we all know how dad loves to be comfy and relaxed, so, when it comes to sleepwear look no further than, stylish plaid gowns and modern patterned pyjama sets, paired with fun beer mug-themed slippers.

Or, if you’re really unsure of what he’d be keen on adding to his wardrobe, opt for a gift card and let him choose.

Whether he has a sweet tooth or prefers a more savoury selection, he’ll be far from hangry with a host of different tasty treats available. For the wine connoisseur, Woolies’ exceptional Signature Series boasts three red and three white wine options, the highly esteemed Rustenberg RM Nicholson and Shannon Vineyards’ Mount Bullet, as well as a vast cellar of specially selected vintages. Having the guys over will be easy with an assortment of ice buckets, as well as tumbler and wine glasses for any-and-all beverage choices.

And if he is a winner in the kitchen, opt for the Olive & Rosemary Beer Bread Mix, the locally made Hot Sauce and the trio of Costas Extra Virgin Olive Oil (available in intense, medium and delicate).

Or go for the all-out spoil by gifting him with a must-have Smeg kettle or toaster (the black or white will fit in in any kitchen colour scheme).

As for the man that craves a sweet fix, put his taste buds on another level with Woolies’ locally produced Chuckles Tin, Peanut Brittle enrobed in a sustainably produced milk chocolate (with responsibly grown cocoa), and Brandy & Whiskey Chocolate Liqueurs.

But don’t forget that he needs some TLC, too! Bring out your dad’s inner Magnum PI with Longmarket Barber’s ‘The Selleck’ shaving kit or give him an essential (and award winning) Hair and Body Wash with an invigorating moisture surge with added conditioning agents. All Longmarket products are dermatologically tested, vegan-friendly and approved by Beauty Without Cruelty.

Make your gift count by giving him the power to keep his skin looking tip top with the extensive Clinique for Men range, and make sure his scent is on point with Bvlgari’s Bvlgari Man Wood Essence, Issey Miyake’s L’Eau Super Majeure D’Issey and Dolce & Gabbana The One Grey. Or, pick a fool-proof gift set, with options from Blue, Marrakech and Clarins.

For the final ‘yass moment’, make your present stand out with some slick wrapping and a thoughtful card—there’s an eye-catching range to choose from and personalise in your own special way.

Here’s to celebrating dad jokes and your multi-faceted father figure this Father’s Day! Find all of these gift solutions and more exclusively at Woolworths stores countrywide and online at www.woolworths.co.za.

As men become more educated and aware of their skin concerns, a fresh demand for targeted solutions has grown.

Bio-Cellulose is a premium material made of naturally fermented, vitamin-rich coconut juice. The unparalleled, ultra-cooling gel-like structure adheres to the face like a second skin, ensuring maximum absorption of the concentrated serum.

The perfect Father’s Day present for fanatical foodies!
A gift card with a difference from the artisan bacon experts at Cure and Simple.

Cure and Simple, the company that provides some of the best quality bacon on the market, is gearing up for Father’s Day by offering a gift card with a difference.

This gift card doesn’t buy books or aftershave. This is a gift card that gives you the chance to treat the fanatical foodie father in your life to regular deliveries of artisan, hand-cured bacon!

Gift card buyers can choose a number of packs of bacon – from two to 12 – that can be redeemed by dad against one of the plans at www.cureandsimple.com, offering different billing and delivery frequency: monthly, fortnightly or weekly. As for the bacon itself, your dad can choose from five flavour styles or a mixture of flavours in each order.

You choose the amount you want to spend on your gift card, which is generated as soon as you purchase it and emailed to you (or dad) immediately. Gift cards are valid for 365 days; you can also decide when your gift card is to be delivered, up to 365 days in advance. And of course you can choose a card design and add a personalised message to your gift card.

Don’t forget: each pack of bacon is hand-cured and air-dried to Cure and Simple’s exacting standards, the meat comes from high-welfare, outdoor-reared or free range, happy, healthy pigs, and all ingredients enhance – but never disguise – the natural flavour of the bacon. And every pack will reach dad shrink-wrapped for freshness, with minimal moisture, through his letterbox.

This is a truly unique gift to give this Father’s Day to any lover of high-quality food products. Each plan includes packaging and first-class delivery in the price. And because the bacon fits through your dad’s letterbox, he doesn’t have to be in when it arrives. We can even include a (mostly) fool-proof dog deterrent to keep Rover away from dad’s dinner. Just let us know.

Cure and Simple gift cards really are a unique Father’s Day gift – and Cure and Simple bacon is very, very tasty. And they’re both available now at cureandsimple.com
