I cannot tell you the number of press releases that are so way off the mark for Father’s Day as to be almost unbelievable. No, funnily enough, my dad won’t be thrilled with a treatment for back fat, nor will he delight on the day at the thought of getting help for his moobs, his tummy or his wrinkles. He doesn’t want Botox, a face lift or a hair transplant. Father’s day, as if we need reminding, is a celebration of dads, young and old, fat or thin, rich or poor, and it hasn’t as yet been renamed ‘Dad Improvement Day’. How inappropriate to use a special day as a way to hone in on body insecurities. 

I’m giving my dad these beautiful wood and citrus scented travel soaps from Roger et Gallet – a nice, indulgent treat that he will love. It says nothing about how he looks, how he should change or how he could be better.
