Beauty Editor’s Top Go-To-Grooming Gifts for Father’s Day

Stumped on how to treat Dad this Father’s Day? Skip the Bunning’s voucher and opt for a little bit of luxury – because Dads need self-care too!

Hydration Heavy Hitter:

Perricone Md, Hypoallergenic Nourishing Moisturizer, $106.00, at Mecca

Dr. Perricone’s Nourish Moisturiser is always my go-to recommendation for mature men.

The formulation contains shea butter, olive polyphenols for antioxidant protection, and peptides for anti-aging. Olive oil and squalene make the formula perfect for post-shave, while shea butter means it’s replenishing enough for the kind of weatherbeaten Dad who has only ever used sorbolene. As a bonus? The elegant, gender-neutral packaging will add some luxury to his bathroom rotation.

A Close Shave:

Add a little luxury to his routine this Father's Day with Aesop's Complete Shaving Care Kit.
Complete Shaving Care, $285.00, Aesop

Elevate his shaving experience this Father’s Day with Aesop’s luxurious Complete Shaving Care Kit. The four-piece set contains a double-edged, Merkur Solingen stainless steel blade razor, a handmaid, cruelty-free Silver Tip fiber brush, the Morrocan Neroli shaving serum that calms and softens the skin whilst enabling a razor-close shave and the Morrocan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion, a lightweight, balancing lotion to add hydration and sooth.

A Signature Scent:

Frederic Malle's Monsieur Cologne is the perfect statement scent for Father's Day
Frederic Malle, Monsieur, $78.00-$420.00 at Mecca

Frederique Malle’s Monsieur will make any man feel young again. Whether he’s a fragrance maven or scent-shy the oriental vanilla notes on this cologne are approachable and ruggedly masculine. The top notes of tangerine and rum add some interest while cedar, incense, and rum keep things grounded. At its heart, this Vanilla and Musk scent is as dry, comforting and toasty warm as he is!

An Experience:

For an experience he won’t forget, book him in for the “Mr. Bond” Barber Shop shave at QT Hotel’S spaQ, Sydney this Father’s Day. He can enjoy a Chivas neat while he gets those unruly eyebrows trimmed, face steamed and the closest shave of his life. For my Dad’s sixtieth, I booked him and my brother a boy’s day at QT and they both came back looking like new coins!
