When it comes to Father’s Day gifts, Dads can be hard to please, or they already have everything they need. Fortunately, we have a few ideas that just might be the perfect fit for your picky Pop.

Does Dad travel a lot? Help him handle all his skincare needs with a travel grooming kit for Father’s Day. Convenient and practical, a plethora of kits abound, each containing a wide variety of products, but always covering the basics like cleansers, moisturizers, and shaving creams. Depending on his needs, you can find a kit with sunscreens, facial scrubs, lip balms, hand creams and pretty much anything else he might need on his travels.

For example Anthony’s Logistics for Men The Smart Set ($45) includes a cleanser, facial scrub, shave cream and moisturizer (www.anthony.com). For the high-flying dad, consider RéVive Renewal Travel Kit ($625), which contains top-of-the-line products with anti-aging properties (www.reviveskincare.com). Not a bad way to keep Dad happy and comfortable while he is away from home.

If Dad is a skincare novice, a good starter set of standard products would make a nice gift. Basics include body and facial care, specifically facial products for pre- and post-shave. Every Man Jack is currently running a Father’s Day special on the Double Play Kit ($25) that includes prep and post- shave products and a natural body wash among other items (www.EveryManJack.com). This kit is a great deal and a great way to tell Dad that you are looking out for his wellbeing. Another gift idea is Kiehl’s Fuel Transformer Age Correcting Moisture Gel for Men ($30). This moisturizer addresses the aging concerns that men face due to their specific skin qualities, such as thicker and oilier skin (www.Keihls.com).

Is Dad athletic? Help him relax with a soothing soak in a warm bath. Molton Brown Thermal Muscle Soaks ($28) not only relaxes muscles, but also improves circulation (www.groominglounge.com). If he works out to the extreme, Jack Black Dragon Ice Relief and Recovery Balm ($22) is a great way to ease out muscles kinks (www.groominglounge.com). This product soothes sore muscles and stimulates healing blood flow to speed up recovery. Don’t forget to throw in the post-workout necessities, like a good hair and body wash (I’m sure he will appreciate the simplicity of the two-in-one function). You can pick up some John Varvatos Hair and Body Wash for just $30 at www.groominglounge.com.

The gift of great skin will always be welcomed. Treat Dad to the new Clarisonic Gray Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($149). Designed to clear pores and cleanse, the Mia also preps skin for the smoothest shave. Participants in a Clarisonic clinical study reported a closer shave, increased comfort, reduction in irritation and fewer razor bumps (www.nordstrom.com).

So when thinking of options for Dad this Sunday, move beyond the traditional tie. These are products designed specifically for men’s skin and they would make a refreshing gift for dad while he is on the go or just relaxing at home for the weekend.
