I don't know about you, but I've always found that when shopping for any men in my life, I get stressed out on what to buy them. I'm not sure whether if it's because they're never clear on what exactly they want, but after years of the 'umming and ahhing' whenever asked, I've actually got pretty good at picking out well-received presents. Today, I am helping you out by sharing my top Father's Day gifts from Boots as they have everything you need to make your dad feel special and I've also got some bonus ideas for those of you who are stuck on what to do on the 16th.
Aftershave is of course the best place to start, but before I share my favourites, I wanted to showcase some of the other ways you can treat your dad to a pamper this Father's Day. If they sport a beard then this L'Oreal Men Expert Barber Club Grooming Kit would be the perfect pick as it contains both a beard wash and a moisturiser to keep their beard feeling and smelling great.
If that gift set doesn't tickle your fancy then I think this L'Oreal Men Expert The Daily Expert Set will. It's tailored more towards those who need to spruce up their skincare routine, but I think it'd be a great present to give someone who wants to give them some extra TLC. If you want to give your dad a little something more, maybe you could use the L'Oreal Hydra Energetic Recharging Tissue Mask as a way to hint at you taking him for a facial, spa day or a massage too!
If you want to treat your Dad to some more skincare gifts then the L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Moisturiser, L'Oreal Face Wash and L'oreal Exfoliating Scrub are all great and are favourites in our household. The trio will help to pamper and preen your Dad this Father's Day - something that I know a lot of ours don't do enough!
Now onto the aftershaves and I think of myself as a connoisseur when it comes to this area as I love (and feel like I'm very good!) at picking out a scents for people. You can never go wrong with Paco Rabanne One Million in my opinion as it suits anybody from young to old. It's long lasting scent lingers on anyone who wears it and is great if you like the traditional aftershave scent, but you want something a little lighter. Another good allrounder is the Hugo Boss Boss The Scent which is a lot deeper than the last pick, but I think everyone that's ever sworn it loves it!
With a sleek black packaging, the Givenchy Gentleman Eau De Parfum is another perfect pick for your Dad. With woody floral notes on top of lavender, vanilla and patchouli this is a classic smelling fragrance that lingers on the skin for a long time - all whilst looking chic on your shelf too.
If you're looking for something a little different, the Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male is a classic and is well-loved for a reason. With notes of lavender, mint and vanilla, it's not the usual scent you'd usually associate with aftershave, if your Dad is silently over the same fragrance he always gets given (I know I've been guilty of this!) this offering would be great for anybody looking for a new scent. Gift this for your Dad on it's own or maybe pair it with a bonding activity of gin tasting (how fab!) or something more active like going to a paddle boarding lesson. I will probably be doing the latter on Father's Day!
Last up is Gucci Guilty, an Eau de Toilette that I am giving away to one lucky winner today, so you can gift this beautiful scent to your dad this Father's Day. It's classic, glass bottle looks gorgeous on display and fragrance offers notes of cedar wood, bergamot and Spanish Cypress.
