Nailing It: Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is right around the corner, but there’s still time to give your Dad something that not only shows you care, but something he could probably use. There are a number of gift ideas that can help your old man spruce up his grooming regiment, and these might even give you some inspiration of how to pamper yourself too!

1. Spa Day – What better way to pay back your Dad for all the things you put him through growing up than with a day of relaxation? And look no further than the guys-only Hey Man Day Spa at 226 West 4th Street in New York City, tucked in the basement of a West Village apartment building. If your Dad is in need of some muscle work, he’s in luck! Hey Man specializes in knot-melting massages with five different styles: Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, reflexology and tui na, an ancient Chinese technique said to improve blood and energy flow. If you need more than just the kinks in your shoulders attended to, you can bundle an hour-long rubdown with other treatments such as a combo manicure-pedicure, a half-hour facial or a 60-minute body scrub that exfoliates your skin with honey and seaweed to combat aging dry skin.

2. Groom It Out – If you want to upgrade your Dad’s grooming, head on over to The Art of Shaving’s website and check out their special Father’s Day gift packages, like the Sandalwood Full Size Kit. It comes with everything Dad will need for that next night on the town! The Full Size Kit includes all four elements of their signature Perfect Shave: Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, a Shaving Brush and their special After-Shave Balm. The combination of these quality ingredients, handcrafted accessories and expert shaving technique provides optimal closeness while helping ward against ingrown hairs, razor burn, and nicks and cuts, while leaving behind a soft and smooth face. Plus it comes with a free 30ml cologne. Dad’s looking pretty good for his age!

3. De-hair & Detox – Summer is basically here and even Dad needs to get that body hair touched up for hitting the beach. Take him over to Mortal Man on 135 West 28th Street, a guy-grooming experience not easily replicated. Owner Anna Augustsson is legendary for her near-ouchless waxing, and she’ll painlessly defuzz you from your ears and shoulders right down to your back and legs. Augustsson personally attends to every client herself, meaning your Dad will get all the individualized care he deserves including some more odd treatments like wax-clearing ear candling or an ionic detox footbath, which is said to draw toxins out through the feet. Dad will be summer ready before he knows it!

4. Travel Ready – Does your Dad love to travel or go on trips more now in his golden years? Well, make sure he’s looking his best abroad with the Perry Ellis Men’s Portfolio 10-Piece Grooming Travel Gift Set from Macy’s. This imported kit is perfect for keeping your Dad on the go looking sleek and smooth at all times. It includes a lint brush, black plastic comb, 3-way knife, cuticle pusher, toe nail clipper, nail clipper, tweezers, file, eyeglass repair kit and scissors, plus fits right into any carry-on or overnight bag. Go, Dad, go!

No matter what you end up getting for Dad, he’ll feel great knowing that you just want him looking his best wherever he goes. Happy Father’s Day!
