Men deserve a little pampering too, and what better time than Father’s Day to help him spiff up his grooming routine? Here are a few gift ideas to make him feel great.
Fruits & Passion F/P Homme Eau de Toilette in Numero 001 or Numero 002
Selecting a fragrance as a gift can be tricky, but you can’t go wrong choosing between one of these two: The notes for these masculine scents are based on scent preference tests done with men from around the world. For a sporty and active dad, choose Numero 001, with scents of grapefruit, sage and cool musk. If your man’s more traditional, or the outdoorsy type, go for Numero 002, featuring cardamom seeds, cypress and mahogany wood.
$45, 100mL; Available at Fruits & Passion boutiques, www.fruits-passion.com
Wahl Rechargeable Body Grooming Kit
If your dad loves power tools, this grooming gadget will make his day. The 12-piece set comes with everything he needs to keep the hair on his face, head and body in tip-top shape. And with summer just beginning, it’s perfect for beach prep, with interchangeable shave heads designed for head-to-toe trimming, to rid him of that self-grown winter sweater.

Biotherm Homme Ultra Confort Moisturizing Balm Soothing After Shave
Is your father still using an alcohol-based product to sting his pores into submission after shaving? If so, it’s for him to move up. This creamy balm soothes with active ingredients, such as extract of thermal plankton, and moisturizes with amino acids and glycerin, leaving his skin silky soft (which is a bonus for you, too).
