Choosing the perfect pressie for your pa can seem like a real chore. It’s such a struggle trying to work out what products your dad’s gonna wanna get on board with. Your pops can be picky and you wonder what scents he’ll like, the type of razor he’ll go for and the moisturiser he’ll actually use… Yep, it’s a tricky one. But, hey, it’s OK because if there’s one thing the DARE gang know how to do best, it’s getting the ultimate gift for our loved ones. Here’s what we’re getting our dads this June…

It’s 2018 and beards are all the rage. No longer does a touch of stubble equate to a few too many late nights and being too lazy to buy a new razor. Now it oozes cool, sophisticated and successful; just Google ‘David Beckham at the Royal Wedding’. In recent months, my dad has caught wind of this new movement and now wants to jump on board the designer beard bandwagon. That’s why the BaByliss For Men Super Beard Trimmer is the pressie I’m backing this Father’s Day. The advanced-blade technology allows for extreme sharpness and precision, and the dial-length control means he can decide on the exact length he wants his facial fuzz. Make way for Daddy Cool!

Some find Father’s Day shopping really hard, but I find it easy as pie. Why? Because Dad LOVES to moisturise. Seriously, he takes longer in the bathroom than I do! He spends all his time in stuffy offices, so his skin really dries out – cue: Bulldog Age Defence Serum. This is super-hydrating and smells really manly. I’m hoping the stuff will speed up his grooming routine so I can spend more time in the shower in the morning!

My dad likes to keep male grooming simple, but don’t get me wrong – he loves a product. He’s in his element with aftershave. He’s always buying new fragrances and trying out new scents. I know he’s on the hunt for a long-lasting aroma that’s fresh but manly so I’m going for the Issey Miyake L’Eau D’issey Pour Homme. He never leaves the house without a spritz of something, so I’m hoping this makes the cut.

I’ve always found it tricky to buy a present for my dad that he’ll use, but brushing his teeth is probably the only grooming-like thing he does, so this Oral B Genius 9000 Black Electric Toothbrush is perfect for him. He’ll be rocking a pearly-white Hollywood smile all Father’s Day long.
