While our Dad’s most probably already know how much love we have for them, this holiday gives us a chance to fully show it. Celebrate your superhero on the 20th June and send your Dad some love with a thoughtful gift he’ll treasure forever.
1. The Gift of a Pedicure – Here’s Something That No One’s Talking About!
Wondering why we’re talking about pedicures this Father’s Day? It’s because the benefits of pedicures for men are huge – your Dad included!
Yes, pedicures aren’t just for women, they’re also for men too and they come packed with tons of benefits for all. The biggest advantage of a pedicure isn’t just that they make our feet look great (although we know they do!). Did you know that pedicures remove the bacteria that lives on our feet? And that they can effectively remove unwelcome foot odor? The road to healthier feet starts with good hygiene and by having a pedicure, you’re on the road to success.

2. Let’s Delve Into Some of the Benefits of Pedicures
While there shouldn’t be much need to convince someone to get a pedicure, we know too well that men in particular can be reluctant to take such measures to care for their feet.
Asides from making you feel great, taking the time to have a pedicure provides us with real benefits that we often take for granted.
a. Prevents Infection
Summer is here and we’re ready to get out and about. Due to all the outdoor walking we’ll be doing in the warm sun, our feet are bound to get stuffy and carry extra sweaty moisture as we go about our day. The problem here is that this excess moisture can lead to fungal infections which can grow overtime. Having regular pedicures can help to remove any horrid bacteria that may be growing by clipping, cutting and cleaning the nails.
b. Healthy Nails
Pedicures help to promote healthy nails by stimulating blood circulation around the feet. This increase in blood circulation helps to carry vital nutrients around the body to protect and support our feet and nails, providing them with all the goodness they need.
c. Relaxation and Mental Health
Taking time out to look after yourself is key to feeling relaxed and stress-free. Helping you to put your mind at ease, there are so many mental health benefits for both men and women when it comes to giving yourself a pedicure. It’s the perfect way to treat Dad this Father’s Day. After all, everyone deserves a pamper. Your Dad is no different!

4. How to Strengthen the Bond Between Fathers and Their Kids
The most important relationship for a child is the one they develop with their parents. Having a good relationship with your father can affect everything you do in later life – from your career to your dating habits. No wonder it’s so important to have a strong connection with your Father!
Let’s delve into some of the ways to strengthen the bond between the two of you this Father’s Day.
a. Ask Questions About Their Life
One of the best ways to strengthen the relationship between you and your Dad is to show interest in each other’s lives. Ask them about their work, friends and things they never told you (this question works great both ways!). Listen to the stories he has to tell and share your own stories with him too. You’ll probably learn things you never knew about each other’s lives before.
b. Open up About Your Feelings
When we open up and speak from the heart, we show trust. Getting to know your Dad on a deeper level paves the way to building a stronger connection, especially if you encourage or create the opportunity for your Dad to open up to you. As your parent, he’s used to protecting you and shielding you from pain – which might include hiding his own pain from you from time to time. Creating an environment where your Dad feels comfortable, opening up can help reinforce that connection between the two of you and create an even stronger bond.

c. Genuinely Listen to Each Other
This is super important if you’re having a heart-to-heart. But even if you’re just casually chatting, show that you’re genuinely listening to what’s being said. Simple things like keeping eye contact, nodding your head, waiting for them to finish speaking before you speak, and asking follow-up questions can make a huge difference in helping build connections. By genuinely listening to each other when you talk, you can help strengthen trust.
d. Reminisce About the Good Times You’ve Shared Together
We all love thinking about happy memories. Reminiscing of the good times with our Dads is no different. Ask about things you did together when you were younger and share the funny moments that you remember. Laughing and reflecting back will help you both see just how much life you’ve experienced together.
e. Have a Pedicure Together!
Lastly, it wouldn’t be right if this one wasn’t on the list! To connect, you need to create a one-on-one environment where you’re both relaxed. Having a home pedicure together is a great treat for both you and your Dad and gives you the space to share, listen and reconnect.
