We just want to give a shoutout to the dads out there who took the time, patience and care to really master the art of fatherhood. Being a dad is certainly no easy task, and we're here to tell you that the ones who take the task to heart make a world of difference in the lives of little ones. In order to show the eternal gratitude to these special dudes, we thought we'd recommend one father's day gifts you may not have thought of before - the gift of grooming!
Girls are known to primp and preen - this absolutely does not mean men don't do the same. It's a gift that continues to give throughout the year, beacuse dads don't often have time to take time for themselves. Here are a few of our personal favs that we think he'll love:
Basic Safety Shave Kit
Shaving made easy peasy, even for those who are unacquainted with the art form. It contains a safety razor, a boar hair shaving brush, a pre-shave oil, a shaving soap, an aftershave, and an aftershave lotion - basically everything a beard could need.
Bumble and bumble Sumotech
Men have been raving about this hair product for years, and with good reason - it's one of the best wax/paste/creme hybrids for styling short hair the world has ever seen. Be warned, he's going to want more of this should he get the chance to try.
