We’ve trawled the beauty shelves for gift ideas for dads who like to indulge in some me-time (or ones that need a little helping hand in the grooming department). From skincare solutions to wellbeing supplements, distinguished scents to hair care, we’ve got him sorted this Father’s Day.

For dads who love to travel (we get the irony) we rate Aesop’s selection of minis that will have him sorted when away from home, or for a truly unique scent and a bottle that’s going to make him look the business on the bathroom shelf, it has to be Tom Ford’s F****** Fabulous, which by the way, is unisex and smells F-ing fabulous.

Whether he sports some Craig David manscaping or a bushy Brian Blessed, if your dad’s got a beard this is the ideal gift. Copenhagen Grooming know everything there is to know about facial hair, whether it’s grooming it, trimming it or indeed growing it in the first place.

Gift him the 8am Splash – a foamy, lemon-scented beard wash designed to remove filth and dirt, or make some inoffensive hints that his beard is in need of a lockdown trim with their finest quality beard trimming scissors. No barber’s appointment? No bother.

Hydration Wash and Deep Conditioner

DIZZIAK

When Dizziak launched a few years ago it was a complete game-changer to the hair scene, offering products that really cared for and moisturised afro and thick, frizzy hair types. It’s since won awards, had the seal of approval from Vogue and is stocked by some of the most respected beauty retailers in the business.

If your dad’s barnett is in need of some TLC, this will do the job, plus, the packaging is pretty cool too.

From £20

Buy the wash and the condition at Cult Beauty

Looking for a gift for the dad who has everything? Buy him Aesop’s Post-Poo Drops that will make less than rosey toilet trips less embarrassing. Or, go trad with ome gentlemanly Acqua di Parma or D R Harris’ Arlington Shave Bowl.

For a fuss-free gift that will errs on the side of practicality rather than vanity, Rio’s Cordless Water Flosser will leave his pearly whites sparkling. 

Beard Growth Kit

Copenhagen Grooming

If your dad’s struggling to get his lockdown beard off to a good start, this slightly tongue-in-cheek gift might amuse.

CG’s Beard Growth Kit has been proven to increase beard density by 55%, increase hair thickness by 10% and activate new facial hairs.

A contact lens subscription might not be the more luxe of gifts, but these vitamin-rich lenses will leave his peepers feeling brand new. Spoil him with Clinique’s award-winning Super Eye Energy gel for when he’s had less than his eight hours, or play it safe with one of the top rated hair trimmers from Babyliss.

If he knows his stuff when it comes to beauty he’ll be familiar with these two brands – Le Labo and Foreo.

Le Labo’s coffee scrub might just replace his morning espresso thanks to its invigorating formula that contains coffee and sunflower seeds to slough away dead cells. While Foreo’s Luna cleansing tool is a high-tech but super easy way to get Hollywood-worthy skin.
