Father's Day Gift Guide 2015

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

It's almost Father's Day here in Australia; that special day to celebrate your dad, your grandfather or another special man in your life that has inspired you. For me, that person is my step-dad. He's been in my life for at least the last ten years (and counting) and he's always treated my sister and I like we were really his daughters. 

This year I have decided to do a gift guide of all the primping and grooming products I could find for that special man in your life. I'll also be doing some in-depth reviews in which my step-dad and my partner will be sharing their thoughts. 

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Nivea Men Originals Gift Pack

This is a really nifty little pack that I've seen available all over the place. It contains some nice staple products including a face wash gel, a shower gel, a shaving gel and a face, body and hand creme. This little pack was under the $15.00 mark and is a really great all-rounder.

Lynx Essentials Collection in Africa

You'll find that a lot of men often reach for Lynx products, so they're usually always a hit. Even though my partner wouldn't choose it for himself, he never complains if he receives it as a gift. This little gift pack comes with the shower gel and the bodyspray, and was around the $10.00 mark.

Remington Smart Edge Advanced Foil Shaver *

If you've got a little extra to spend on dad this year, a great new shaver is always appreciated. This one is pretty fancy and has active hybrid technology to help trim longer hairs first before going in for that close shave. It's also 100% waterproof, travel-proof and is rechargeable. This one retails for just a little over $100.00 but is worth every cent.


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

The Body Shop Sports Kit + Maca Root Face Scrub

I actually purchased this kit for my partner last Christmas, but it's such a handy little kit I wanted to include it here too. The Sports Kit comes with deluxe sizes of the Maca Root Face Wash and the Shea Shower Cream; as well as a handy little bag and a sports towel. I also threw in the Maca Root Face Scrub as I know my partner's face needs that little bit extra. The Maca Root range actually smells amazing. This kit retails at under $40 and the full size scrub retails at $20.95.

David Beckham Instinct

You can never really go wrong with cologne. My partner complains as I buy him cologne all the time - but it's really because I like it when he smells nice, so I can't resist. One of our shared favourites is this particular scent. It's perfect for day and night wear, and is a really well suited scent for most men's tastes. A 75ml bottle of this fragrance will cost you less than $15.00.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Schick Hydro Favourites *

Don't want to spend a fortune on one big razor? Well, why not spend a small fortune and give dad a selection of shaving products from Schick. Schick is my partner and step-dad's preferred brand when it comes to shaving, so they are always thankful for these sorts of things. The Hydro range has a huge selection of razors; my partner's personal favourite is Hydro 5 Groomer. This range usually retails from $6.00 upwards to $15.00.


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Just for Men Collection *

My partner and my step-dad don't have much hair as it is, but the hair they do have; they are sensitive about. Some men are sensitive about going grey (and hey, if you aren't, good for you!) and it can be a difficult topic to address. Just for Men have an entire range of super easy shampoo-in hair colours available for men. I was surprised at their range of shades, and that they even have a moustache and beard option as well for keeping those pesky greys at bay. You can grab his preferred shade for less than $15.00. 


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Gaia For Men Collection *

Gaia is such a lovely skin care brand, and have actually formulated an entire range precisely for men. My partner and step-dad are actually trialling these products as we speak, so we will have a full in-depth review on this range up shortly. Each of these products retails for under $15 each.


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Elemis Deep Cleanse Facial Wash * and Energising Skin Scrub *

It's not just us ladies that enjoy the fancy skincare; with Elemis you can give dad a very fancy wash and scrub. My partner has been using the facial wash for a while now and swears by it; the scrub he and my step-dad have been trialling and will possibly review. This range is on the slightly pricier side with prices up to $70.00. 


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Three Wise Mum's Favourites *

I won't lie, I've actually been using some of these products as well. I believe they are unisex anyway as they are natural products. This brand has a great selection of products including the Enhanced Face Balm for a neutral facial moisturiser, the Aloe Body Butter which is a very lightly whipped moisturiser that is incredibly nourishing on the skin, the Addiction Body Butter which has a beautiful earthy scent, and the Almond Shea Hand Fudge; an innovative product for dry and cracked skin. The Almond Shea Hand Fudge is actually a solid bar that melts into your skin as you rub it between your hands. This range is super cost effective with prices up to $20.00 for regular sized products.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Nivea Men Exfoliating Face Scrub and Face Body Hands Creme *

This scrub is a pretty simple but rather gritty scrub, so perfect if your dad's skin needs a little TLC. The Nivea Creme is the perfect thing to follow on with, as it's super creamy and absorbs nicely into the skin; and has the most beautiful and intoxicating men's scent. I'm a little bit in love with this product myself. Both products are under $10.00.


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Antipodes Immortal Natural Sun Protection *

Sun care is oh so important for your skin, but can be so frustrating to apply to your face as it can become greasy very quickly. (A common complaint.) The Antipodes Sun Protection is a face and body moisturiser that's non greasy and absorbs super quickly, and gives you natural SPF15 coverage. This one is $49.00.


Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Lush Cosmetics Kalamazoo Beard and Facial Wash

Does your dad have a beard? Mine does. My partner does too. They're pretty hairy guys, which can get messy sometimes. This beard and facial wash really targets the dirt and helps keep their beards nice and soft, whilst also staying clean. The best part about this is it is unisex (bearded ladies need love too) so if he doesn't like it, you can use it as a regular face wash. My partner actually really likes this one and uses it almost daily. This one is also under $10.00.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2015 - Sweetaholic Beauty

Neutrogena Men Skin Clearing Shave Cream

This one is incredibly moisturising so if you dad likes to  shave but hates getting razor bumps or ingrown hairs, this is the one for him. It's a great addition if you're making up a little shaving set. This one is also under $10.00.

This is just a selection of the many, many men's grooming products that are available on the market these days. It's so great to see so many brands on board, giving men different options and innovative products. Men's grooming is often a topic that is overlooked, so it's nice to shed some light on it.

If you're anything like me, you'll make you up your own men's grooming products hamper for your dad, so that way you can pick and choose what will suit him the best. Obviously I''ll be grabbing my step-dad other gifts non-grooming related, but this is a great guide for grooming products.

What are your getting your dad, or special man in your life, for Father's Day? What is your go-to gift for men?
