Dads are the hardest people to shop for. Ask them what they want, and they’ll say “nothing”. Give them what they want and they’ll rave about it for years. While Sunday, September 4th might seem like a while away, Father’s Day is creeping up on us. Fortunately, Amazon Prime Day is already here, and there are some incredible gifting options across tools, skincare and fragrance (that’s eau de cologne for blokes, if he asks).

So, we rounded up some “treat yourself” men’s grooming and self-care products the old man is guaranteed to be delighted with.

The Aussie Man, Father’s Day Gift Set

If you’re shopping for your partner, as well as the father of your children you might want to explore The Down Under Trimmer ($99) – unless you buying for the father of your child, or fur-baby, that might be awkward. But there, is nothing awkward about this father’s day kit. The Father’s Day Gift Set ($69) comes replete with everything the dad on the go could want. From their spiced sandalwood & honey, body wash to lush Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, “Dad Mask” (a sheet mask) and after shave balm, all zipped up in a sleek grey toiletries case.

The perfect post-shave product, Perricone MD, Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer, ($103) will be a luxurious treat for Dad. The dermatologically-tested balm soothes with olive polyphenols and vitamin E while supporting the skin barrier with squalane and shea butter.

Christophe Robin, Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt

If you’ve ever watched a man go at his face with an exfoliating scrub, you’ll know the sheer, sometimes frightening joy that can be taken in the process. If you want to direct your dad’s attention somewhere less damaging, a scalp scrub is a great option.

Christophe Robin, Cleansing and Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt ($71) is a hybrid shampoo-and-exfoliant. Essentially, if dad’s something of a beauty minimalist, this won’t add another step to his routine.

Foaming sulphates (you can read about why sulphates aren’t all that bad here) and gritty sea salt are offset by hydrating sweet almond oil. They work in harmony to produce a rich, creamy lather you’d expect from any high-quality shampoo, while the sea salt granules shift dandruff causing plaque, dead skin and oil build-up. While the product has a faint ocean scent, it leaves no lingering fragrance — just a refreshed scalp and a gorgeous head of hair.


Philips, Shaver Series 5000, Wet and Dry Electric Shaver

Does your dad like to nerd out on gadgets? Do you have traumatic memories of blood-splotched toilet paper bits from his rogue shaving adventures? The Philips, Shaver Series 5000, Wet and Dry Electric Shaver (currently $145 from $201.64) will make too-close shaves a thing of the past, while also delighting your Dad.

The Series 5000 provides a fast, close shave with rounded “comfort cut” blades that glide comfortably over wet and dry facial skin. The three heads are capable of five different movements at a time and adapt to the facial contours, including tricky areas like the neck and jawline. Additionally, the shaver comes with a click-on trimmer for moustache and sideburn trimming (you may not want him to grow one, but if he’s going to do it, it may as well be tidy).

L’Oréal Paris Men Expert, Hydra Energetic Cool Eye Roll-On

It’s a common misconception that “gentlemen of a certain age” don’t care about their skin — they have to show up at zoom meetings and stare at themselves just like the rest of us. However, they can have difficulty sticking to a skincare routine, so it’s best to make it simple and fun. The L’Oréal Paris, Men Expert, Hydra Energetic Cool Eye Roll-On (currently $7.17, usually $15.95) is an impressively effective product that checks the “simple” and “fun” boxes.

Like a cup of coffee for the eyes, the roller ball serum works instantly and over time to firm the under eyes. The icy cool rollerball acts as an instant vasoconstrictor, tightening the under-eye area. Then caffeine gets to work, increasing blood flow and lifting the eye contours. Meanwhile, vitamin C will work long-term to increase collagen production. Dad should see a decrease in fine lines and sagging.

Aēsop, Hwyl, Eau De Parfum

In Welsh, the expression ‘hwyl’ refers to a “stirring sensation” of fervour, emotion, motivation and enthusiasm,” and that’s how this eccentric, energetic and powerful fragrance makes us feel.

Aēsop, Hwyl, Eau De Parfum ($150) is a unisex cult classic in the making. Its scent was inspired by the Hinoki cypress tree forests of Japan. Think dark, green, smokey notes and earthy accords of vetiver, oakmoss, sandalwood and thyme. While woody fragrances are usually associated with winter, the green notes in Hwyl make it a surprisingly fresh, all-season option.

Boss Bottled, Eau De Toilette

Time for your dad to take his grooming game to the next level? Consider a cologne. Sure, you may not like to think of your dad as “sensually masculine”, but that’s exactly what this cologne is. Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss (currently $44.41, usually $135) has been a best-seller for the brand since 1998 because it strikes the perfect accord of fresh, woody and a little bit spicy. With energising green notes like apple, oakmoss and plum, Boss Bottled dries down to musky sandalwood, cedar and vetiver harmony.

This is a self-care product that’s fun for the whole family — just give it to Dad first. The RENPHO C3 Massage Gun ($100) is perfect for dads who have become Fitbit fanatics in later life. The Renpho addresses sore, tired muscles with 3200 rate-per-minute “percussion force” to loosen up muscles in the arms, shoulders, lower back, neck and calves. With six massage heads and 20 different speeds, this is a self-care tool that can be tailored to your personal needs.

Another brilliant self-care tool from Renpho. The Eye Massager ($65) takes inspiration from acupuncture. It applies heat and vibration to relieve tension headaches and eye strain, and promote relaxation and quality sleep. The eye massager also comes with built-in Bluetooth functionality, so your dad can pop on a playlist, some ocean sounds or even a podcast while he decompresses. If Dad’s a frequent flyer, the eye massager is portable enough to pop in his carry-on and use in flight.

Note: The eye massager is not recommended for people who suffer from cataracts, have undergone eye surgery or have retina conditions.

Our teeth are with us for life, which is why they need more support as we get older. Cavities and receding gums are more common as we age, whether from wear and tear, or genetic factors. Either way, depending on his age, your dad might want to up his toothbrush game. The Philips Sonicare, Diamond 9000 Clean Brush Kit ($259), usually $379) has everything you need to get a blinding white smile — and spend less time in the dentist’s chair. Sonicare removes ten times the plaque of normal toothbrushes and has a built-in pressure sensor to protect gum health, while smart sensors warn you when you’re brushing too hard or have missed a spot. This kit also comes with a smart charging glass, and a sleek, chargeable case (for discrete deskside battery top-ups).
