Well groomed: A Father’s Day gift guide

It feels like Mother’s Day just happened. Well actually, it also feels like New Year’s just happened.

2017 is flying by, it’s already the middle of the year, which means that dads are at the forefront of our minds right now. We usually just ask my father what he wants and he tells us, but if you are absolutely stumped on what to get dad, there are so many options out there. Something BBQ-related, a tie, socks, sports tickets, the gift options are endless.

Still stumped? Here’s my roundup of products that I’m sure dad would love.

La Boite a Bon Bons candy subscription box La Boite a Bonbons

There seems to be a subscription service for anything nowadays, but this one is the sweetest of them all.

Hailing from Montreal, La Boite a Bonbons is a monthly subscription box that contains 1 kg of candies based on your preferences. You can choose either sweet, sour, or mixed gummies.

You can subscribe for C$27 a month (plus shipping if you don’t live in Quebec or Ontario where it’s free), or just gift one box. Head’s up, if you sign up for their newsletter, you can receive 15 per cent off your first box.

I got their June mixed box, which contains a bag each of cocktail mix, rainbow bricks, red berries, and cherry slices. Trust me, it was very hard not to rip this open as soon as I received it.

Jack Black It's All About Him gift set

Jack Black 2017 Limited Edition Father’s Day Set

I feature a lot of Jack Black products in my men’s gift guides and the reason I keep doing so is because my dad actually loves Jack Black. Back before I even started blogging, he would buy Jack Black products because they seemed to work wonders for him.

For Father’s Day 2017, the men’s skincare and hair brand is offering up this limited edition set, which includes some must-have JB products. You get a 3 oz. of their famous Turbo Wash Energizing Cleanser for Hair and Body, a dual-purpose body cleanser that washes away dirt and sweat without over-drying the skin; a 3 oz. of the Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, which is a cleanser and toner that works to gently remove dirt and oil without irritating skin; a 1 oz. of the Clean Break Oil-Free Moisturizer, which leaves skin feeling refreshed and healthy looking with a natural, shine-free finish; and a 3 oz. of their Beard Lube Conditioning Shave, which is a pre-shave oil, shave cream, and facial skin treatment that softens facial hair for a smooth shave.

You can find this set on Sephora online for C$54. It all comes housed in a handy branded toiletry bag. If I didn’t already have a gift for my dad, this is the one he would be getting!

Les Industries Groom Beard Oil and Beard Balm

Les Industries Groom Tobacco Beard Oil and Beard Balm

Another grooming product (and one that also hails from Montreal!), this one is for the hipster dad.

Barbershops are still all the rage and it seems like men’s skincare is definitely stepping it up a notch. One of my favourite Tom Ford colognes is Tobacco Vanille, as there’s just something so masculine about the scent of tobacco. Les Industries Groom’s Tobacco Beard Oil (C$32-$53) is a blend of light oils that quickly penetrate hair and skin, providing nourishment, moisture, and relief from itchiness and dryness.

This also comes in an original formula, but the combination of sandalwood, spikenard, and tobacco is so riveting that your dad will probably be applying it when he doesn’t even need to!

Pair the beard oil with the Beard Balm (C$28), also in the same scent, which provides beards with nourishment, control, and protection. Melt a small amount in your palms then apply to the beard to soften and keep hair in place. The balm also coats the beard to protect it from the elements. Make sure to use it after the beard oil for maximum effect.

You can find both these products at lesindustriesgroom.com.

Cirque du Soleil Kurios

If you live in the Winnipeg area, why not get your dad tickets to Cirque du Soleil Kurios?

Located under the big top at the corner of Kenaston and Sterling Lyon, this spectacular production is playing here until July 9, 2017. I went to the premiere and loved every minute of it, definitely one of my favourite Cirque productions to date!

Tickets start at C$40, however, there are so many promos I’ve seen around the Internet. The space also seems small so I’m sure there isn’t a bad seat in the house (er, tent!).

Whether it’s grooming products, something he can eat, or a show, I’m sure whatever you gift dad this year, he’ll love anyways. It’s the thought that counts, right? 😉

What are you getting dad this year for Father’s Day?
