What’s Hot For Dads? Last Minute Father’s Day Gifts and Contest
It’s June 17th and the question on everyone’s minds is “what’s hot for Dads?”
In fact, even literary icon Margaret Thatcher just tweeted, “Happy Fathers’ Day! (Tie: too 50s? Knife set? Golf item? Vinyl LP? BBQ accessory? Case of Moosehead? Trip to Mars? What’s hot for dads?).
Whether it’s for the man who has always spoiled you or the father of your children, here’s our annual guide to how to great last minute gifts for his special day.
For the Tech Guy:
Get your Dad the Canon EOS 60Da. The shots taken with this tech gizmo are simply mesmerizing. This high tech camera is designed for astro-snaps specifically and is an 18-megapixel, APS-C CMOS has an ISO range that runs to 12,800, letting in enough light for you to capture the stars. A gift your father can enjoy in moments of solitude with shots that he can endlessly show off to his friends. Also, a great bonder for granddads and grandkids.
For the Hair Guy:
If your man has Justin Bieber hair or sexy locks, check out a limited-edition Father’s Day Gift Set by Schwarzkopf Professional’s brand new men’s line 3D Men Hair effect. With neon green and black packaging, it’s uber masculine to look at and is fabulous product that will effectively and easily shape his do in a high impact, manly way. The brand has a great slogan: Men like to keep their options open. No wonder, men expect their hair care to be just like them.
For the Book-Reading Guy:
Robin Sharma’s books make great gifts for Dads. For the noble man who has always been your inspiration, The Leader Who Had No Title is a fabulous guide to showing leadership, having power and playing at your peak, regardless of position. Similarly, Robin Sharma Daily Inspiration is an uplifting book of quotes that truly energize and transform the lives of readers.
For the Sporty Guy:
LUSH Cosmetics The Guv’ner is an unforgettable gift for your Dad. It is an “odour-busting blend of sage, lavender and patchouli in a super absorbent charcoal and lycopodium base” and was tested every day for 3 months wearing white shirts. Pure magic, this loose powder deodorant is a pain to use (grey powder goes everywhere) but somehow it works and works better than traditional drugstore roll-ons and aerosols. The moisture-absorbing charcoal also contains antiseptic and astringent sage and patchouli for its cooling, astringent properties on the skin.
For the Pampered Guy:
L’OCCITANE is always known for luxury products but their hot Verdon Energy Moisturizer is like putting a bit of heaven on your face. Created especially for active guys, it intensely moisturizes and soothes the skin after a shave. It contains purifying peppermint essential oil, sea-buckthorn moisturizing water, nourishing and energizing oil, and protecting genepi extract, which have been selected in response to specific needs of men’s skin.
For the Sexy Guy:
The scent of musk is considered a principal attraction between the sexes. If you gift The Body Shop’s White Musk Eau De Toilette Pour Homme to the father of your children, this is definitely a gift the two of you can enjoy. It’s a modern, masculine and seductive infusion of musk and woods with crisp, fresh, and aromatic notes; think of the male gift alternative to sexy lingerie!
For the sportier male, this musk comes in a Sport version as well which has a zesty touch with notes of grapefruit and lemon fused with sensual amber.
