Beauty—er, grooming—products probably aren’t the first things that come to mind when hunting down the perfect gift for your dad, but since men rarely buy these goods for themselves (after all, there’s no grooming aisle at Home Depot), they make amazing presents. So spoil him with these foolproof Father’s Day finds. No matter what type of guy he is, we have something he’ll totally gush over.
The Role Model: What little boy doesn’t want to be just like his dad? Create an Instagram-worthy moment for father and son to share by getting him Harry’s Father-Son Shave Set ($30, harrys.com). This kit contains a limited edition three-blade Winston razor for the big guy, a toy razor for the little guy and a how-to picture book so they can “shave” side by side. Too cute for words!
The Jetsetter: Whether he’s flying from one business meeting to the next or driving to see different clients, this on-the-go dad might run into some snags along the way. Keep him prepared for anything with the Pinch Minimergency Kit for Him ($13, pinchprovisions.com). So small, it can be stashed in a carry-on or glove compartment and includes 13 must-haves: lip balm, dental floss, breath freshener, stain remover, mending kit, safety pin, extra buttons, shoe shine towelette, nail clipper, hand-sanitizing towelette, deodorant towelette, adhesive bandage, and pain reliever.
The Classic: This guy is simple but he cares about his skin and he doesn’t like all the girly stuff his wife uses. Stock him up with a dopp kit—grab the new PC4MEN Complete Skincare Kit ($98, PC4MEN.com), which includes complexion-perfecting essentials (face wash, shave gel, after-shave, sunscreen and night cream) that are free of fragrance and irritating ingredients so he can always put his best face forward. Bonus: he gets to keep the preppy travel bag, too!
The Man’s Man: Beer, bacon and the great outdoors. Sound like your guy? Give him a little taste of his favorite things with a Yankee Candle Man Candle ($28 each, yankeecandle.com). Allow him to escape in his man cave with scents like On Tap (the cool, golden smell of a freshly poured draft) MMM Bacon! (the mouth-watering aroma of sizzling meat) and Camouflage (a natural woodsy fragrance that’ll transport him to the wilderness).
The Gym Warrior: This guy makes pancakes in the morning, reads bedtime stories at night and yet he still finds time to fit in a sweat session every dang day. Turn his quick locker room shower into a spa-like experience that invigorates the senses with Organix Citrus Mint 3 in 1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash ($7, drugstore.com). The three-in-one formula saves him space in his gym bag and has citrus extracts to stimulate his hair and skin and refreshing spearmint and peppermint oils to re-energize after a hard workout.
The Sophisticate: Sleek and suave, smart and stylish—what man doesn’t want to be just like Bond, James Bond? He’s every guy’s favorite spy and now you can help your favorite father unleash his sense of sly adventure with the James Bond Quantum 007 Fragrance ($40, kohls.com). The fiercely masculine scent has a mix of earthy moss and a touch of lavender while notes of British crisp apple and sandalwood give it a modern twist. Offer him a spritz and then follow it up with a martini—shaken not stirred, of course.
