Father’s Day 2021: 12 Best Beauty and Wellness Gifts For Dad
Father’s Day may be a celebration that’s much less hyped than Mother’s Day but that doesn’t mean we should let the main man in our lives go unnoticed. Self-care has taken precedence since Covid-19 hit the world so if you’re keen on pampering dad differently this year, we’ve rounded up a number of products that your pops will enjoy.
From luxurious shower gels to refreshing colognes for men, here are some ideas to help dad take extra care of himself this Father’s Day.
1/12 Boy De Chanel Anti-Shine Toning Lotion
If you had gifted Mum a gorgeous set from Chanel Beauty for Mother's Day, it's time to do the same for Dad this weekend.
Beauty is not a matter of gender, but a matter of style; therefore, Chanel launched Boy De Chanel, its first makeup and skincare line for men back in 2018. Since then, the French maison has offered a series of essential beauty products that men can adapt to their style, whether it be laid-back or sophisticated.
Suitable for all skin types, the new Boy De Chanel Anti-Shine Toning Lotion aims to address the three main skincare concerns for men: shine control, dehydration, and discomfort caused by shaving. In order to restore a lasting equilibrium and shine-free look to the skin, the Chanel Research team included a combination of naturally derived ultra-fine powders and annatto extract in the formula.
Smooth, lightweight, and practically invisible, its aqueous gel texture is easily applied and absorbed, leaving no trace of residue, even in the beard. The only thing left behind by this alcohol-free formula, designed for sensitive skin, is a mild and discreet scent.
Available at Chanel Fragrance and Beauty boutiques and on Tangs.com.
2/12 Dior Sauvage
This Father’s Day, celebrate Dad's fierce charms with Dior Homme's Sauvage Eau de Toilette.
The strong gust of Citrus in Sauvage Eau de Toilette is powerfully anchored by the ambery nobleness of Ambroxan, resinous Elemi and Woods that bind the whole. Instantly recognizable, it has become a genuine signature scent, unique in its confident virility. Like a deep breath of fresh air, Sauvage Eau de Toilette is a bold composition for a man who is true to himself.
"To create Sauvage, I used man as my starting point," said François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior. "A strong and unmistakable masculinity. Like the image of a man who transcends time and fashion."
In addition, the Sauvage refill has arrived—so if your Dad is all about responsible luxury, this iconic scent is perfect for him. Plus, the bottle is recyclable.
Available at Dior beauty counters and boutiques.
3/12 Bulgari Man Glacial Essence Eau de Parfum
Bulgari's new fragrance for men exudes a sparkling freshness that captures the unbridled magnitude of frozen mountains, so if that's right up Dad's alley—this flacon of freshness may be what he needs in his collection. The freshness of its sparkling top notes awakens an unexpected woody and vigorous heart, culminating in the intense and ambitious tones of the crystallised dry down. The base notes are masculine and clean, giving it the power of a woody fougère fragrance.
“I wanted to translate the feeling of icy freshness. This high-contrast fragrance is an icy, liberating breath of air for every man who wears it,” said Alberto Morillas, master perfumer for Bulgari.
Available at Sephora, Tangs and Bulgari.com.

4/12 L:A Bruket Room Diffuser
L:A Bruket’s room diffusers come presented in heavy statement round glass bottles with exclusive rattan reed sticks that Dad can use to add a stylish touch to the decor of his man cave.
No 203 Tabac is one of the brand’s most popular room fragrances for many reasons. It features a base of masculine vibrations in tobacco, cedarwood and earthy dry notes, the sweet enticement of musk, lemon and jasmine creates a golden aura of mindfulness and anticipation to give life and focus to your mind.

6/12 Diptyque Citronnelle candle
Lemongrass is characteristically a summer scent, thanks to its tangy coolness and its mosquito-repellent properties.

10/12 Dr Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite BodyWare Pro
LED light therapy has grown in popularity simply because of its promise to prevent breakout, fight against acne, builds collagen and relieves pain.
Dr Dennis Gross is ready to level up with the launch of its new state-of-the-art body device: the DRx SpectraLite BodyWare Pro, a multi-functional device that is one of a kind and suitable for all skin types. This device uses the same LED light therapy technology as their iconic FaceWare Pro. Up to 46 treatments per charge, this light therapy device includes a combination of 148 red lights and 68 blue lights to treat wrinkles and acne, help reduce visible dark spots, and alleviate mild pain over the entire body. Within that three minutes, red lights would penetrate deep within the skin’s dermis to stimulate collagen production for anti-ageing benefits. The blue lights destroy P. acne (Propionibacterium acne) bacteria to treat and prevent breakouts. An additional 14-minute mode provides intermittent pain relief through anti-inflammatory red lights.
So if your Dad is struggling with body aches, this handy device will make the perfect gift—plus, it is easy to store and won't even take up too much space at home.
