This weekend marked a pretty important holiday… flag day…. just kidding… Father’s Day!!
Like this weekend and any occasion involving buying someone from the a male gender a gift, it’s the worst experience ever. Guys are so hard to shop for!! My running list includes: a pair of Toms, a pair of Toms, and oh ya… a pen. All last minute. Under mad stress pressure. One time I even gave a dude crabs…hermit crabs that is…
After that, I started a list on my phone called “gifts for guys” and wrote down everything they ever mentioned they liked… And that list still remains completely empty. The one easy thing with Dads is that at least they will smile and hug you anyways even if they hate it and even when you are late in your gift-giving (kinda like this post). Why are dads so the best?
For all you stressed out last minute ladies, let’s get rid of those frown wrinkles.. for you and for your gift getting-guy!
Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub. Give the gift of smooth skin for a clear complexion and closer shave. Right, isn’t that on every guy’s list? The caffeine, menthol, and citrus extracts is perfect for the party-raging-late-night-every-night guy who needs an extra pick me in the mornings.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm. First it has SPF, which is mama approved, if that’s what you are seeking. Second my guy friends swear that this is the only “lip balm” (not to be confused with chapstick or anything close to lipstick) that keeps lips flake-free and moist. Best part, it comes in five nongirlie flavors.
Molton Brown Re-charge Black Pepper Bodywash. Rich, powerful, and insanely sexy.
Redken for Men Mint Clean Invigorating Shampoo. I may or may not already use this for myself. The peppermint extract gives the scalp such a satisfying and clean tingle, that you may be tempted to steal this for yourself. Plus guys are sweaty, they need something extra to clean their scalps to help their hairs grow aka avoid baldness.
Lacoste Noir. There’s something classically sporty and elegant about that little crocodile on the bottle, and the same can be said about the scent inside it. It’s clean and slightly powdery, and any dad or man can pull this off, even if he’s not usually the cologne type. I also know a dad who can hook your dad up if needed (yup, my dad).
If all else fails, there is always the “World’s Greatest Guy” mug at your local drugstore.
Love you dad and happy happy Father’s Day,
