The third Sunday in June celebrates the men in our lives who taught us how to ride a bike, change a tire, catch a fish, or take an afternoon nap in a big comfy chair. Father’s Day helps us honor and celebrate fathers and fatherhood as we show the dads in our lives how much they mean to us.
However, dads are notoriously hard to shop for. When ties, golf clubs, grills, and watches aren’t personal enough, we have various gift options to help show Dad a little self-care love.
BaBylissPRO Clippers and Trimmers
Boost dad’s shaving game with BaBylissPRO’s GOLDFX Clipper (FX870G) or GOLDFX Outlining Trimmer (FX787G) so he can clean, cut, and create like a professional barber from the comfort of his own bathroom (with maybe a little help from mom).
The clipper has a Ferrari-designed brushless engine, cordless two-hour runtime, and five-detent taper control for precise cutting of any hair type. It also comes with eight comb attachments—ranging from 1/16″ to 3/4″—to create a wide variety of styles.
The trimmer creates clean edges, outlines, designs, and detail work with its exposed zero-gap T-blade. It uses a high-torque, brushless, Ferrari-designed engine and runs cordlessly for up to two hours.
The gorgeous gold finish gives this duo a high-end look and feel Dad won’t be able to ignore. These tools also come in rose gold, silver, sleek black, and daring red casings.
Christian Dior Sauvage Eau de Parfum
Featured in many top-ten lists of the best men’s fragrances, Sauvage is a stone-cold classic when it comes to masculine scents. This warm, earthy, woody fragrance was inspired by the desert at dusk; it’s ready to cool after the burning day when the sand absorbed all the lavish rays of the setting sun.
Fresh and slightly spicy bergamot melds with notes of veiling vanilla absolute and sensual nutmeg to create a perfume that is fresh and warm, promoting a peaceful balance that radiates calm confidence.
The top notes of this scent are bergamot from Reggio di Calabria in Italy, mandarin orange, and elemi, followed by a heart of sandalwood from Sri Lanka The base notes include frankincense, tonka bean, and vanilla absolute from Papua New Guinea. The opening of bergamot is fresh and juicy with sun-filled notes of pepper and zest while the vanilla absolute base gives some smoky and sweet accents to this full and spicy fragrance.
While covering up any unwanted scents, impart a fresh, clean, woody, and masculine fragrance that pairs with Dad’s favorite eau de toilette or cologne.
The charismatic and elegant scent of these deodorant sticks blends well with one’s own, so it’s not overpowering or intrusive.
Many are also alcohol-free and won’t stain clothes while proving up to 24 hours of sweat and scent protection.
Anthony Body Basics Set
Called the “Body Basics” for a reason, this set contains three of Anthony’s best-selling and award-winning body products that clean from head to toe. It includes Anthony’s Glycolic Facial Cleanser (which also comes in a larger 16 oz. bottle), All Purpose Facial Moisturizer, and Alcohol-Free Deodorant.
The non-foaming cleanser works with all skin types, though it is ideal for normal to oily skin. Glycolic acid (one of the most common AHAs used for exfoliation) gently exfoliates the skin to dissolve dead skin cells, remove impurities, and deeply clean the delicate facial skin without stripping it. This formula also uses soothing calendula, chamomile, aloe vera, and nourishing vitamins A, C, and E.
The moisturizer is perfect for all skin types with its lightweight and nourishing formula. Vitamins A, E, and C provide antioxidant protection, vitamin B adds hydration, wheat protein smooths and firms the skin, and lactic acid evens the skin’s texture and balances its tone. This moisturizer also helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Formulated without alcohol or aluminum, the deodorant keeps underarms smelling fresh and clean. It cools and calms the skin while the natural herbs and botanicals go to work preventing odor all day with the scent of basil, ylang-ylang, grapefruit, orange, and wintergreen. Despite being blue, the solid stick applies invisibly, doesn’t dry out the skin, and doesn’t stain.
For dads with stubble and scruff, a full and lush beard, and everything in between, beard oil can help tame hairs while minimizing flakes and itching.
With lightweight and plant-based oils that nourish and hydrate the skin, beard oils help reduce dryness and irritation. As well as conditioning the beard, the oil also adds a healthy shine but doesn’t leave behind any greasy film.
Essential oils also add a subtle scent to the skin with fragrances like warm and spicy Black Pepper & Cedar or bright and refreshing Citrus Mint Basil. Some of our favorites include Ziziner’s Beard Oil, TIGI’s Bed Head For Men Fuel Around Beard Oil, Isle of Men’s Elegance Beard Oil, Layrite’s Concentrated Beard Oil, and Kiehl’s Nourishing Beard Grooming Oil.
SheaMoisture Maracuja Oil & Shea Butter Beard Wash
There are a lot of beard washes out there, and they’re as important for healthy face follicles as a good shampoo is for the scalp. Formulated specifically for men, this wash softens, hydrates, and nourishes the hair and skin.
This wash deep cleans beards of dirt, flakes, and odors without drying out facial hair and skin. Invigorating Maracuja Oil and conditioning Shea Butter combine in a pH-balanced formula that provides a clean slate for flawless grooming.
Maracuja Oil moisturizes and nourishes the hair while Shea Butter conditions. On top of this flawless formula, we do also love Billy Jealousy’s Devil’s Delight Beard Wash (with hydrating vitamin E, detangling shine, and a warm black pepper sandalwood scent) and Jack Black’s Beard Wash (which breaks down buildup while adding softness and shine).
18.21 Man Made Wax
With its beeswax-like consistency, this wax offers a high-hold but low-shine finish for versatile styles. It can smooth down frizz for a smooth and sleek look, but can also add texture to a ‘do for a more rough and messy mane.
As well as styling locks, this wax can also shape and style mustaches, beards, and goatees, making it the perfect present for all types of dads. It works best with short and medium-length hair, but it gives enough structure to reshape and create multiple different styles, even the next day.
This wax comes in a masculine sweet tobacco scent. It includes mellow notes of saffron and dried fruits; touches of tonka bean, manuka honey, and dark vanilla; and a base of its namesake with sweet tobacco, as well as notes of powdery musk and woods.
Elemis Daily Moisture Boost
As well as hydrating thirsty skin, this moisturizer also uses Green Tamanu Oil to soothe, antioxidants from citrus oils to decongest and protect, and chestnut and bamboo milks to improve suppleness and elasticity.
The perfect post-shave treatment, this daily moisturizer alleviates, soothes, and conditions the skin for a soft touch and comfortable feel. It is also lightweight for fast absorption.
After all, even dads need to practice proper skincare.
Dad might not get this for himself, but a skincare routine can do a guy a lot of good.
SK-II’s Men Facial Treatment Essence takes the original Facial Treatment Essence and specially formulates it for men’s skin needs. This anti-aging, hydrating essence creates crystal-clear skin by minimizing dark spots and wrinkles, refining the skin’s texture, and firming the face. Over 90% of this essence is formulated with PITERA, an SK-II exclusive ingredient that contains more than 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and organic acids.
Peter Thomas Roth’s Instant FIRMx Eye is a quick fix you’ve seen all over TikTok that will blow older dad’s away with its youth-restoring properties. This eye treatment provides instant temporary results with long-term anti-aging benefits. The unique formula instantly helps tighten, firm, and smooth the look of the delicate eye area, temporarily minimizing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and under-eye puffiness.
