Unless your dad’s maturing as well as David Beckham, chances are he probably needs some extra help in the grooming department and Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to introduce him to the essentials. In the age of the “metrosexual male” – a splash of water and a bar of soap just won’t cut it anymore, so step away from the “Old Spice” and pick up one of these dad friendly grooming gifts instead…
Struggling to think of what to buy Dad for Fathers’s Day? Don’t fret a second longer! Daniel Flay is here with some top grooming gift ideas…
1. Philips S903126 Shaver – £216.64 (BUY HERE)
Beards may be all the rage at the moment, but you just can’t beat the freshly shaven feeling – so why no treat your old man to this top of the line shaver from Philips? It might be a little on the pricey side but believe us, the quality of shave is well worth the 3 figure price tag.
2. Tweezerman G.E.A.R. Essential Grooming Kit – £32.00 (BUY HERE)
Chances are, even hard man Ray Winstone has to tame an unruly eyebrow hair or two. This handy grooming set is ideal for the dad on the go and even comes in this rather manly and surprisingly stylish leather case. The kit includes a Point Tweezerette, Facial Hair Scissors, Fingernail Clippers, and a Multi-Use Nail Tool (nope we’re not really sure what the last one does either!).
3. Wood Handle Cut Throat Razor – £95.00 (BUY HERE)
It’s not just falafel and independent coffee shops that we have to be thankful to hipsters for, they’re also responsible for making the classic close shave ‘cool’ again. Throw it way back this Father’s Day and treat your padre to one of the ultimate male grooming gifts. The cut throat razor is an all-time classic instrument and a wonderfully retro way to show how much you care.
4. BYREDO Mister Marvelous Eau de Parfum – £70.00 (BUY HERE)
When picking out an aftershave for someone it’s far too easy to buy a boring bottle of something straight off of the best-seller shelf. Show that you’ve put some thought into your choice and surprise your dad with a fragrance from Byredo instead. The company’s popular Mister Marvelous Eau de Parfum is guaranteed to leave him with a new signature scent…unless he isn’t a fan of neroli, green lavender and bamboo, then in which case, just stick to a bottle of Paco Rabanne.
5. Acqua Di Parma Ginepro Di Sardegna Shower Gel – £29.00 (BUY HERE)
Unlike a bottle of Lynx, Acqua Di Parma won’t leave your dad with legions of female admirers falling at his feet but it will help him to maintain his skin`s natural moisture level – if we were approaching 50, we know which one we’d prefer. Because this particular shower gel is enriched with Vitamin E, not only will it protect skin cells, but it’ll also leave him feeling fresh and velvety soft.
6. Mi-Pac Ostrich Wash Bag – £18.00 (BUY HERE)
Wherever is your dad going to store all of his new grooming goodies? How about this Mi-Pac Ostrich Wash Bag? We’d love to go on about how practical and spacious it is, but if we’re being totally honest, we just thought it looked cool. We’re massive fans of the classic ostrich texture and know that your dad will be too.
7. Murdock London Marvellous Moustache & Beard Boxmurdock – £80.00 (BUY HERE)
With great beard, comes great responsibility – just ask Dumbledore. Beards are notoriously hard to maintain but this handy kit from Murdock should help whip your dad’s facial hair into shape. It contains all of the essentials he’ll need to stroke his growth with pride. Products include beard moisturiser, marvellous moustache wax, a beard brush, a moustache comb, a flannel and a pair of scissors.
8. & 9. Nip + Man Scrubbing Facial Wash & Daily Power Moisturiser – £7.95 (BUY HERE)
It’s never too late to implement a daily skin care routine, no matter how much your dad might protest! These fantastic products by Nip + Man are the perfect way to ease him in gently. The caffeine and papaya in the Face Scrub will reenergise and retexture his skin, while the Moisturiser will nourish and brighten his complexion.
10. C.O. Bigelow Bay Rum After-shave Balm – £24.00 (BUY HERE)
If there’s one thing that your dad will be thankful for this Father’s Day, it’s an effective bottle of after-shave balm. There are hundreds of products on the market that claim to soothe tender skin but none that work quite as well as C.O. Bigelow – our bet is that the winning combination of nourishing shea butter, aloe vera and healing extracts of calendula, chamomile, cucumber and menthol have something to do with it.
11. Kent Hair Comb with Black Leather Case and Tab – £8.60 (BUY HERE)
Personally if we had this comb, we’d probably spend most of our time fixing our hair in shop windows, wearing a black leather biker jacket and singing “You’re the One that I want” – but that’s neither here nor there. Your dad will like this comb because, well let’s face it he can do the same. Oo-oo-oo, honey!
12. Tom Ford Noir Eau de Parfum Spray – £62.00 (BUY HERE)
In the words of Jay Z “I don’t pop Molly, I rock Tom Ford” and if it’s good enough for Jay Z, well then it’s good for your dad.
13. Lab Series High Tech Travel Set – £25.00 (BUY HERE)
If you’re looking for value for money this Father’s Day, this Lab Series Skincare Travel Set offers two bestsellers at an unbeatable price. The set includes a bottle of the brand’s famous Multi-Action Face Wash and Daily Moisture Defence Lotion, along with a bonus sample of PRO LS All-In-One Face Treatment.
14. Carter and Bond Leather Safety Razor Case – £18.00 (BUY HERE)
We’re sure your dad once sat you down and chatted to you about the importance of protection, and now it’s time to return the favour. With summer on the horizon, and your dad’s Italian getaway already planned and paid for – all that’s left to do is pack! This Carter and Bond Black Leather Safety Razor Case is the ideal travel accessory for keeping his razor safe. On top of being super sleek and stylish, this handy case will fit most razors, and help to prolong the life of razor blades.
