R&R Dad Style: Gift Ideas to Give Dad a Break This Father’s Day


 

Last month for Mother’s Day I did a mom’s retreat gift guide, filled with gift ideas to give mom a much-needed spa day at home. As I was planning ideas for Father’s Day, I had a brainwave – why not do the same thing for dads? My own dad definitely enjoys grooming and pampering himself from time to time, but even the most rustic dad wouldn’t say no to these soothing, comforting, refreshing gift ideas. Without further ado, here are a few ways to treat dad right this Father’s Day.

Gillette Mach3 Turbo Razor Set – $14.99 @ Food / Drug / Mass Merchandise Retailers
I always maintain that if dad says he does’t want anything, you can always treat him by stocking up on a few of his favourite go-to products. That way you’re lightening the load on his wallet and giving him something that won’t collect dust. This cool collection contains a brand new 1 Mach 3 Turbo Razor, alongside two razor cartridges and some Mach3 Turbo Extra Comfort Shave Gel. It’s got everything dad needs for a smooth, clean shave to stay cool this summer.

Commodity Travel Set

Commodity Best Dressed Travel Spray Set – $52 @ Sephora
Unisex fragrance brand Commodity is seriously beloved by those in the know. Specializing in uncomplicated, powerful aromas, this six-spray set introduces you to the brand’s Platinum, Black and White collections, with unique scents like ‘Moss’ and ‘Gold’. Perfect for a jetsetting dad (plus you can steal a spritz for yourself!)

Thermotex

Thermotex Platinum$249.50
As dad gets older, so does his bod – leading to aches, pains, and all those fun things you’ll hear him griping about. Instead of reaching for a bottle of pills, why not give dad the gift of comfort? Thermotex is reinventing the heating pad game with their infrared heat technology. Because it’s radiant, it directly targets pain and inflammation where it originates, flushing out toxins and nitric oxide. While I’ve highlighted the ‘Platinum’ model here, I’ll happily point out this Canadian brand also produces pads for specific body parts, like your knee or elbow (which my dad would totally love!) It’s a wonderful gift for the active dad – or you can even check out their ‘Gold‘ model for office dwellers.

Men's Society Manicure Set

Men’s Society Handsome Hands Manicure Set – $25 @ Indigo
Ladies know all the work it goes into maintaining their hands and nails – while men give ’em a side eye that I choose to interpret as wistful: Why can’t everyone have nice hands? Well this little tin kit can help, with nail clippers, files, scissors, and a soothing cream to keep his fingers perfectly polished for those manly high fives and handshakes. Not into the manicure set? Men’s Society has plenty to choose from.
