Dad’s the word! Father’s Day gift guide

When it comes to Mother’s Day, I find picking out gifts for my mom quite easy.  I didn’t do a gift guide this year because I feel like with a beauty blog, any product review could really apply to moms.  With Father’s Day, it’s a little different.

There’s the stereotypical gifts like barbecue accessories, gift cards, golf equipment, but if you have a dad like mine, Father’s Day is tough because either my dad doesn’t know what he wants or he wants a gift that’s way too expensive.

Visa gift cards are always a great idea, but if you like giving tangible gifts, here are my top picks (all beauty related, of course!).

Sothy’s Homme Soothing After-Shave Balm and De-stressing Eye Roll On Discovery Kit


This French brand is a spa exclusive making this perfect for the dad who’s into luxury skincare (a previous gift for my dad was a $100 shaving brush from Gillette – I guess I know where my expensive taste comes from :P).  The soothing after-shave balm soothes razor burn, skin redness and discomfort, leaving skin feels energized and renewed.

Who says eye creams are just for women?  Pair the aftershave balm with the de-stressing roll on, which is an eye cream formulated just for men.  This products works to reduce puffiness, diminish dark circles, smoothes wrinkles and hydrates the eye area.

Soothing After-Shave Balm ($59.50) and De-Stressing Roll On ($59.50) available at

Calvin Klein Euphoria Cologne


I feel like cologne is always a great gift for dads. I mean, who knows better about fragrances than ladies, right?  Although there is a heck of a lot of scents out there, I love Euphoria Men, a mature scent that has notes of chilled sudachi, ginger pepper cocktail, raindrop accord, cedar leaves, black basil, sage, Brazilian redwood, patchouli, suede note, and amber.

1.7 oz eau de toilette ($72) at Sephora.

BRIKA Father’s Day Gift Box


For the dad who likes to keep things local, BRIKA, a Canadian start-up online experience that celebrates modern craft and storytelling by featuring the work of authentic makers, has curated some of their fave artisan goods into a gift box special for Father’s Day.

The hand-selected items that are included in every box include facial care products by Crux Supply Co., a leather card case by Moniker Goods, and a Sierra key chain no. 1 by Son of a Sailor.

Boxes are $49 (with a retail value of $68) and are available online until June 9 at
