I have to confess that Father’s Day always kind of creeps up on me. With Pickle’s birthday being at the start of the month, I tend to concentrate on that, and then once all the celebrations are wrapped up, I have the sudden realisation that Father’s Day is just around the corner and get a little panicked with trying to find something appropriate to buy. It’s hard, isn’t it? There are so many options! A lot of what is readily available in the shops and in supermarkets is all fairly generic – which has its advantages (everyone could always use a new pair of socks, and a bag of smellies is usually well received) – but occasionally, it’s nice to go for something a bit more unusual, isn’t it? I’ve tried to pull together some ideas that I think encompass the whole range!
Colgate ProClinical 250+ Electric Toothbrush
I seem to remember Sarah from Run Jump Scrap asking on her Instastories a while ago how many people used electric toothbrushes. I was so surprised by the results! Even though we don’t have them, I assumed most people do but if her poll was anything to go by, most of her followers are still using the bog standard ‘analog’ ones. To encourage those big proud parenting smiles, Colgate’s ProClinical 250+ Electric Toothbrush with its new slimmer, lightweight design, could make for an interesting present this year. It delivers up to 30,000 strokes per minute for a really refreshing clean and includes a two-minute timer and 30 second pacer to make sure you achieve a dentist-worthy finish. It’s available in black, white and bold pink and can be purchased for £49.99 at Boots and all major retailers. Whilst pink might not be everyone’s choice for a Dad, pink certainly is the Dad toothbrush colour in our house! LPD (Little Pickle’s Dad) and I decided he would have the pink brush and I would have a blue brush, just to switch those gender stereotypes up a little bit. We want our little boy to grow up without thinking pink is just for girls.
