I hope this Father’s Day buyers guide will help as some men are notoriously difficult to buy for. And, if the special man in your life isn’t difficult to buy for, it may well be because you’ve been giving him gifts he neither needs nor wants.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure many of you out there have a great track record of choosing thoughtful gifts that are well received, but I speak from experience when I say that those socks, ties and novelty toilet-reading books have no place under the Christmas tree.
Instead, treat him to something from our Gifts For Men Buyer’s Guide and rest easy knowing his next smile is a genuine one.
For The Clean Cut One – Pure Shave Shaving Set
At Pure Shave, we’re all about enjoyment and appreciation of the little things in life. That’s why we created a Shaving Set that turns your daily shave from a chore into a moment of indulgence. From the soft-bristled brush that whips your shaving foam up into the perfect lather, to the perfectly weighted wooden handles of our razors, this set is designed to bring luxury into what can be an otherwise mundane grooming routine.
He’s sure to love “The Works” set which includes razor, brush, stand and shaving bowl, or, opt for “The Essentials’ which includes the core tools he needs to get started. And, with a choice of handle types, whether he’s a Gillette man or prefers a double-edged blade, we’ve got him covered.
For The One Who Has Everything – Underwear Subscription
Now, we’d usually say that pants have no place in a present list – they’re right up there with socks and handkerchiefs (thanks, Nana). But this suggestion is a little different. An underwear subscription is a fantastic way to keep him in hole-free boxers year-round, without resorting to a dull multipack.
There is no end of options for monthly underwear subscriptions, but our favourite from a design perspective would have to be On That Ass. With a bold new pattern each month, it’s the gift that just keeps giving.
For The Suave One – Amber After Shave
For the dapper gent who appreciates the finer things in life, you might think you have to drop some serious cash to buy a gift he’ll love – thankfully, that’s not the case. Fragrances make a great gift. They’re personal, long-lasting, can be worn daily or for special occasions, and might even become his new signature scent.
Amber After Shave is a unisex fragrance, making it an ideal choice if you’re not sure whether he’s a Spicy Oriental or an Aromatic Woody kinda guy. It has enough warmth to carry him through the colder months but is inviting enough that he’ll reach for it into Spring and beyond. Best of all, it comes in a metal shipping box, ready for posting back to us for a refill when he inevitably uses every last drop.
For The Wild One – Red Letter Days
The young and young-at-heart can be particularly hard to buy for, as they often change their hobbies as often as some of us change our snazzy subscription pants. For the bloke who’s always looking for the next adventure, there’s no better gift than an experience with Red Letter Days.
Choose an activity you think he’ll love, or take the stress out of shopping with a handy gift voucher. Sure, gift vouchers aren’t the most heartfelt gift, but they’re perfect in pinch and don’t get much simpler!
For The One Who Doesn’t Stay Still – Pure Shave Toiletry Bag
Whether jetting off for a business trip or sunning himself in the Balearics, this guy is forever planning his next big escape. Make sure he has all his kit at hand with the Pure Shave Saddle Leather Washbag. In gorgeous “Crazy Horse” chocolate leather, this washbag will look more and more distinguished as it ages, and with a bottom zipped section along with the main compartment, it has plenty of room for all his travel essentials.
Whoever you’re buying for, make it count with a considerate gift he’s sure to love.
