Rockwell Razors – Stainless Steel 6S Adjustable Safety Razor

“I’m dropping hints about getting this razor for Father’s Day. It’s made from solid stainless steel and has six different settings for a completely customizable shave. I’ve already got 13 razors, so I’d feel a little guilty buying it for myself—but I’d love to add it to my collection!”

Ramon – Men’s Grooming Specialist

Q Brothers – Q Brothers Beard Oil

“Q Brothers Beard Oil is definitely on my wish list—it’s a nice, lightweight oil blend with a great scent and a cool bottle. When it’s extra dry, I condition my beard up to three times a day, so this is the perfect gift for me!”

Rob – Customer Service

Gold-Dachs – Olivewood Nail Brush

“It may seem like an odd gift, but this is a really nice nail brush! My Vati is always in his machine shop, making & fixing just about everything. After a day of skillfully crafting, his hands are definitely dirty. I’m giving him this brush so he can clean up in style! It has firm boar bristles and beautiful olivewood—and it’s made in his birthplace of Germany, which I know he will appreciate.”

Tanja – Fragrance Specialist

Malin + Goetz – Sage Styling Cream

“The first time I met my husband, I made fun of his hair. Turns out he actually has luscious, thick hair, but he had no idea how to style it. He’s not a “product” kind of guy, but he’ll use this cream—it’s got a light hold & sinks right in so there’s no residue or greasy feel. He’s always asking for more, so this is a great gift for our girls to give him.”

Lori – Product Specialist

Floris – Fragrance Travel Collection for Him

“My dad is a pretty groovy dude and has always sought out unique “Foo”—this is his word for cologne or fragrance. Until recently I figured “Foo” was some actual slang for fragrance but it turns out it is actually just a word that I think my dad made up. I know this special collection from Floris will be a great addition to his current everyday “Foo” and keep him smelling groovy.”

Alex – Buyer

Jack Black – Industrial Strength Hand Healer

“My dad spends all his spare time in his woodshop refinishing furniture and making neat stuff to sell at flea markets. His hands get pretty beat up, so I know he’ll appreciate this hard-working hand cream. It’s super hydrating, but non-greasy, so he can use it and get right back to work!”

Tabac – Original Aftershave

“While living in Germany, my dad discovered Tabac Aftershave, and he’s loved using it ever since. It can be hard to find in the US, so I’m going to surprise him with a bottle this year. It’s woodsy & spicy with a hint of citrus—a tried-and-true classic.”

Isabelle – Product Specialist

Kala – Volcanic Ash & Icelandic Moss Soaps

“I like to give presents that are both useful and thoughtfully designed. These Kala Soaps are perfect—they have skin-nurturing ingredients and fantastic minimalist packaging. Definitely a step up from Dad’s usual Irish Spring.”

Kristi – Graphic Designer

Allgauer – Mineral Foot Bath Salts

“My dad has been ready to retire for years, but he’s still working his used clothing shop from open to close. By day’s end his tired, aching feet need some love. My mom’s usually not willing to give him a foot massage, so the mineral foot bath by Allgauer is the next best thing to invigorate and energize his tired feet until his eventual retirement.”

Matthew – Assistant Manager

4711 – Cologne & Shower Gel Gift Set

“My dad loves the scent of 4711 because it reminds him of vacationing in southern California as a boy. This new set keeps him smelling extra fresh with a spray and a body wash—and it comes in a fancy box!”

  • Coming up with what might be considered the ideal gift for someone is not an easy task. After all, the value of the gift will be determined by the receiver. And what one recipient considers best might not be so for another.
    An adult, on the other hand, may deeply treasure receiving a gift of sentimental value, such as a family heirloom. In some cultures, the preferred gift for young and old alike is money, allowing the receiver to use it for whatever he or she wants.
    Or else you can also give gifts to your dads such as material things like. watch, a pair of shoes or a multi tool kit.
