This flexible silicone anti-ageing device effortlessly stimulates collagen and elastin production while increasing healthy cell renewal. The comfortable skin-hugging fit allows for wavelengths to penetrate deep within the skin, delivering the best possible results.

Formulated with Peptide-Rich Plasma® it’s an all-in-one supercharged serum, formulated with a blend of peptides, growth factors, and immunostimulants that mimic the molecules found in human skin cells, leaving a slight skin-tightening film on your skin. Youth in a bottle, basically.

For Dad’s drinks cabinet:
Aviation American Gin
Owned by Hollywood actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, this has been voted the world’s highest rated gin and has helped establish a new style of American gin. Softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front, Aviation is a really well-balanced gin that is a great base for cocktails. Possibly the closest any of us will get to actually meeting Ryan.
Kavka Orchard Vodka
Kavka has recently announced the launch of Kavka Orchard Plum & Apple Vodka. After the success of their award-winning expressions, Kavka Estate Vodka launched in 2021 and Kavka Tokaji Cask Aged Vodka, launched the following year, Kavka Orchard also draws on the long vodka-making heritage of Poland. A naturally sweet and delicate blend of fine grain spirits, plum and apple, sourced and distilled in the ancient Polish town of Sandomierz, this latest expression is perfect to be drunk on its own, in a cocktail, or with a refreshing mixer. Ideal for spritzes and summer drinking.
70cl, £29.95. (available from Amazon and coming soon to Master of Malt)

Each bundle also includes a Father’s Day card which you can be customised with a personalised message at checkout.

Veuve Cliquot Yellow Label Brut Ice Box

Pierre Marcolini Chocolates
This summer season, it is all about vanilla for Pierre Marcolini. This tropical orchid flower produces a pod which, much like cocoa beans, matures over several months to reveal its distinctive aroma with exotic flavour, ideal for summer treats. With summer pralines and ultra-indulgent marshmallows new to the collection, and soft yet crispy financiers, all contain the cream of the crop vanilla and are the perfect gift.
