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 ( For the high-flying dad, consider RéVive Renewal Travel Kit ($625), which contains top-of-the-line products with anti-aging properties ( 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 ( 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 ( 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 ( 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 ( 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 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 ( 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.
