9 Gifts Your Dad Will Be Delighted By This Father’s Day!
I don’t know about your father, but my old man really likes to take care of himself. With my products! For the longest time, I had no clue why I was running out of shampoo and moisturisers at lightning speed despite using them judiciously. Turned out Pa had suddenly developed an interest in looking after his skin, and thought it would be a good idea to bum my products.
I’m super possessive about my products, but I honestly found it so damn cute that he had no idea about the existence of skincare and haircare products solely for men. So I’ve taken it upon myself to educate him and to stock up his dresser (there’s also a vested interest here). Like me, you can make this Father’s Day a lesson in grooming for your father.
1. TIGI Bed Head for Men
If your father’s crowning glory is beginning to show signs of thinning, this Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner from Bedhead by TIGI makes for a great — and considerate! — gift. While you are shopping, you might as well throw in the Matte Separation Workable Wax and inspire your old man to work a cool pompadour!
This portable manicure set is something any metrosexual man would love to have. It includes a clipper, filer, scissors, and also a cuticle cutter. Very, very handy!
Men generally have thicker skin than women. Gift your father this luxurious foot cream from The Body Shop. The hemp penetrates through the layers of dry skin cells and replenishes lost moisture. The foot protector is enriched with glycerine that softens the skin, and lanolin that creates a barrier to keep the moisture in. Your daddy’s tired feet deserve this luxury after a relaxing soak in warm water at the end of a long, hard day.
Maintaining a beard is no joke. The Beardo Gift Set comes with five blends of Beard Oil, a beard wash, some super strong beard wax, and a wooden comb to tame that unruly muff!
If you’ve ever been in the proximity of a beard, you know how thick and wiry facial fuzz can be. While grooming them is an absolute must, you run the risk of making it one frizzy (not-so-hot) mess. This natural wood brush with boar bristles is something any bearded man would thank you for!
The leave-in conditioner has a mild fragrance and adds shine to the beard without weighing it down or looking greasy. It keeps frizz under control, and works well as a serum.
Most men hate moisturising their face. If your father is one of them, it’s time you introduce him to this hydrating moisturiser. It gets absorbed into the skin easily without leaving a greasy film behind. The light formulation provides essential nutrients to the skin, restoring its natural firmness and hydration.
Wean your father’s addiction for foaming cleansers with this perfectly hydrating face wash for men. Enriched with cedar wood, which is known for its calming and purifying qualities, and pure natural ingredients, it makes the skin feel fresh, clean and supple. The cleanser has aloe vera leaf juice to heal and smoothen skin and jojoba seed to minimise fine lines, promote suppleness and rejuvenation, while the vetiver root and black cumin seeds act as an anti-bacterial agent.
Oud has always been the ultimate decadent fragrance and has seen a resurgence in the past year. However, Hugo Boss’s remix is the classiest blend of the traditionally spicy, smoky oud. The best part is that Hugo Boss uses 100 per cent natural oud from the Middle East as opposed to the synthetic ones used by other perfumers.
