Now is the perfect opportunity to set the father in your life up with a solid skin care regime – not least so that he can stop dipping into your own skin care stash, as the case may be. Sunday Riley’s Good Genes will help keep his skin exfoliated and clear, refining the look of pores and keeping breakouts at bay. Regular shaving can really take its toll on the skin, creating irritation and compromising the delicate skin barrier, so a moisturiser like Grown Alchemist’s Age-Repair – rich in antioxidant polyphenols, peptides and moisturising agents – will help keep the complexion feeling nourished and comfortable. And for a more intense dose of hydration, 111SKIN’s Oxygen Express Mask is rich in oxygen and inflammation-fighting Egyptian cucumber extract for more hydrated, refreshed skin in just five minutes.
Encourage your recipient to carve out a bit more time for self-care with a wellness-focused gift. The Ōura Ring, as spied on the hands of both Prince Harry and Cristiano Ronaldo, is an understated piece of wearable tech that provides in-depth wellness insights, from activity tracking, sleep quality and heart rate. WHOOP offers much the same, but is worn on the wrist – the wearer can also enjoy an alarm clock that will gently wake him at the optimal time, as calculated on their sleep cycle.
A well-chosen scent is indispensable in a groomed man’s arsenal. Creed’s Green Irish Tweed is a verdant scent that evokes the Irish countryside, making for a refreshing and clean-smelling spritz that will never date. Tom Ford’s Ombré Leather – inflected with floral notes, amber and sensual leather – is the sort of charismatic fragrance that is sure to pull in compliments. For a refined fragrance that will suit everyday wear as well as formal occasions, we’d suggest Chanel’s Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum: a captivating blend of woods, aromatics and musk that works perfectly for any occasion.
Consider making a few additions to his shaving kit to transform a daily habit into a rather more indulgent daily ritual. Those who favour a traditional shave will love the No. 88 Shaving Set & Stand from Czech & Speake: made in the UK, it features an elegant razor and badger shaving brush, as well as a triple-milled soap perfumed with the brand’s signature cologne.
Officine Universelle Buly’s Crème Pogonotomienne might just be the chicest shaving cream we’ve ever set our eyes upon, with its sweet almond oil-infused formula helping to nurture sensitive skins, while Aesop makes an excellent post-shave treatment to soothe irritation and ward off in-grown hairs.
Even the most dedicated of gym junkies would enjoy a boost to motivation levels with some new additions to their sportswear collection. A good-looking yet functional gym bag will always be well-received, and Scandi line Rains’s offering boasts a sleek silhouette in a variety of muted, sure-to-please hues. You can customise the colours and materials of some of Nike’s best-loved shoes (including their Air Max models) for a pair that are unique and exactly to your recipient’s taste. Or select an oh-so-comfortable hoodie that is suitable for both working out in or for keeping warm post-gym sesh, like the City Sweat Pullover from Lululemon.
