The best beauty buys for the guys.
Dad not a fan of the drills, hammers and lawn mowers? We don’t blame him. If the men in your life aren’t keen on the typical Father’s Day gifts – or, worse still, claim they don’t need anything – it can be hard to find an appropriate replacement.
Never fear, team GP are here.
With a roundup of the best beauty buys for dad. (You’re welcome!) Whether he spends three hours doing his hair every morning, has recently discovered (and stolen) your favourite serum or loves a luxurious fragrance, we have the best men’s grooming gifts, covered.
Dad, if you’re reading this: stop here.
John Varvatos Heritage
If the words modern, bold and sophisticated describe your padre to a tee, John Varvatos Heritage EDP is the gift you’ve been looking for. Opening with notes of West Indian tamarind tree leaf, medjool date fruit and Mediterranean herbs and rounding out with woody notes of leather, malt and balsamic, this fragrance is a showstopper. Plus, the ultra-chic leather packaging makes it a great addition to the bathroom vanity.

Tom Ford Beau De Jour Cologne

This scent is as classic as they come, combining accords of lavender, oak moss and mint with base notes of amber and patchouli. Hailing from the Private Blend line, this scent was designed with well-groomed gentlemen in mind.
