The Cult Beauty Father’s Day Grooming Gift Guide

If gifts are Dad’s ‘love language’ then chances are… he’s questioning your level of devotion (who can blame him?). Hands up whose poor pa unfailingly smiles mock-delightedly while opening his seventh consecutive pair of socks, a snooze-inducing hardback book or an unimaginative box of biscuits? Exactly, your dad deserves better but, what does one buy for the man who already has everything? It’s simple — buy him something he hasn’t even discovered he wants yet (you’re welcome!). We’ve done all the legwork for you and put together the ultimate luxury father’s day {gifts} from {grooming} to {skin care} and {aftershave} to add a touch of extravagance to your dad’s day…

Wahl trimmer shaving beard

Essential for all those with a penchant for grooming, Wahl’s {Trimmer Kit Aqua Blade Multigroomer} is specifically engineered to give consistent sharpness and a precise cut every… single… time. Handsome and practical — just like your debonaire père — this dependable groomer comes with a lifetime precision blade (he’ll never need to replace it!) and can be used wet or dry to trim, edge and shave a full head of hair or bristling beard. Complete with 16 guide combs, blade oil (to keep that trimmer in check) and a nifty beard comb, dad will feel like a professional barber from the comfort of his own home.

For dads who spend their days chained to their desks, the Bed Of Nails’ {Acupressure Strap} has over 2000 pointy plastic ‘nails’ to help relieve tension, soothe aching muscles and leave your pa feeling less stressed (and less crotchety). Ideal for dads who struggle sleeping or complain of knotty shoulders, this is a father’s day gift that’s sure to put you at the top of the Best Offspring list.

Maison Margiela Replica At The Barber's Eau De Toilette

A beguiling aroma that bottles the classic masculine ritual, Maison Margiela’s {Replica At The Barber’s Eau De Toilette} will blow last year’s ‘Old Spice’ aftershave gift set out of the water — and send you straight to the top of the ‘best child’ leaderboard. A luxe olfactory offering, this heady scent perfectly balances smooth and sour base notes of tonka bean and white musk with spicy, earthy top notes — think black pepper and basil essence — all complemented by a freshness of uplifting and calming lavender and rosemary essence. The perfect recreation of the shaving ceremony… this leathery concoction was just made for dad.

If your paternal unit is a gadget-phile, Dr. Dennis Gross{DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro} is the innovative piece of equipment that will delight their inner tech obsession. Giving us major ‘Iron Man’ vibes and seen on the fresh faces of many a celeb and public figure, this medical-grade LED mask combines 100 collagen-boosting red lights with 62 blemish-reducing blue lights for a youthful glow in just three minutes. With two colourways to choose from (the limited-edition {DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro Pewter} makes quite the stylish statement) this is sure to add a notch to their toolbelt… we just can’t promise they won’t break out the superhero impressions…

Bringing the professional barber experience to their at-home shave, this is sustainably focused and an absolute essential for the discerning dad with a strict shaving ritual. Facilitating a swift, gentle and close shave this transforms from a gel to luxurious foam, with notes of bergamot, orange blossom and lemon to bring a hint of Palma to every shave. An everyday treat for discerning daddies.

Maling & Goetz Rum hand and body wash

And for big kids who like getting their hands dirty but are still partial to an evening tipple — look no further than the liquor-infused soap from New York born and bred brand Malin + Goetz. Whether they’ve been out fixing bike chains, tinkering under car bonnets or digging in the garden, the {Rum Hand & Body Wash} or {Rum Bar Soap} (for the eco-conscious pop) adds a boozy warmth to soapy suds that leaves hands spotless while doubling up as a full body wash. The perfect excuse to get grubby to start with…
