Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts for the Dapper Dad
Father’s Day is this weekend, and a many are scrambling for gifts. Rather than resort to a tired tie or socks, gift dear old Dad some great grooming products! After all, men love pampering, too and they appreciate receiving the grooming items they’ll never take the time to buy themselves! You can find these gifts at a mall near you.
I gave my cologne-loving dad a Sephora fragrance sampler for Christmas a few years ago and he LOVED it! This set contains 5 deluxe-sized samples of popular men’s scents and a certificate to redeem at a Sephora store for a full-sized bottle of his favorite scent of the bunch. How genius is that?! The current sampler contains samples of BVLGARI AQVA Pour Homme Marine, John Varvatos, GUCCI Guilty Pour Homme, Paco Rabanne 1 Million and DIOR Fahrenheit. Find it at Sephora st0res everywhere.
Anthony Logistics is one of my favorite men’s skin care lines. They make great products for men with ingredients that get results. I gifted my extremely low-maintenance brother their products in the past, and even he enjoyed having products for his face. The kit contains Anthony Logistics Shave Cream (which my dad is a fan of), After Shave Balm, Lip Balm, Facial Scrub and Glycolic Facial Cleanser, which is particularly good for preventing razor bumps. Dad’s skin will thank you! You can pick up this kit or other Anthony Logistics products at Sephora and Nordstrom.
Also check out skin care sets from popular men’s brands Jack Black and Clinique for Men, which are both available at Sephora and fine department stores.
If your dad loves gadgets (and what man doesn’t?), the Clarisonic Mia in manly Graphite Gray is right up his alley! I’ve gushed about the Clarisonic before, but don’t sleep on its benefits for men. The sonic powered oscillating bristles not only deep cleans pores, but also provides great exfoliation for an extra-close shave. Plus the small size is perfect for travel and throwing in his gym bag. Once he see’s how much better his skin looks and feels, he’ll be hooked! You can get the Clarisonic Mia in a variety of colors at Sephora, Macy’s, Ulta and Beauty Brands stores, but I believe the Graphite gray shade is available at Nordstrom stores and Clarisonic.com.
A candle seems like an unlikely gift for a man, but stay with me, lol! We all respond positively to a wonderful scent, and a candle can help change our mood to one that is relaxed, energized, romantic or whatever! The Blind Barber’s Tompkins Candle features an eclectic blends of notes including honey, smoke, leather and lavender to create a uniquely masculine aroma. After lighting this candle Dad will feel like he’s in his own gentleman’s parlor!
If you can’t get your hands on the Blind Barber candle, check out the Man Candles Collection from Yankee Candle. The collection features four man-themed scents like Riding Mower, 2 x 4, First Down and Man Town. The names are cheesy but the masculine blends featuring notes like leather, wood and spice, more than make up for it. Pick them up at your local Yankee Candle store.
