Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for, which makes coming up with new Father’s Day ideas each year quite challenging. This year, though, you’re in luck. We’re here to help you find the perfect Father’s Day gifts for the man in your life—whether it’s your dad, your significant other, or even the best dog-father you know. Ahead, you’ll find our roundup of the ultimate Father’s Day gift ideas, complete with the best skincare and body care presents for every man on your list.
At Kiehl’s, we’re making gifting easier than ever this year. If you don’t want to wait for shipping, you can buy your goodies online and pick them up at your local Kiehl’s store, or get them gift-wrapped and shipped directly to dad. Read on for our ultimate Father’s Day gift guide.
A good gift doesn’t need to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes, things are popular for a reason. That’s certainly the case for our best-selling men’s products, which happen to make for great gifts for dad. Give him a bundle of Kiehl’s classics, starting with Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash. The caffeine- and menthol-infused gel cleanser helps wash away dirt, sweat, and other debris without drying out his skin. The alcohol-free formula gives dull, tired skin a more invigorated appearance, and it can be used morning and night as the first step in his skincare routine. Pair it with Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment For Men to help keep his skin hydrated and healthy-looking post-cleanse.
For the man who has everything, you can be the first to introduce him to Micro-Dose Anti-Aging Retinol Serum with Ceramides and Peptide. The potent retinol serum is formulated with pure retinol and helps visibly reduce wrinkles, minimize the appearance of pores, and firm skin. Gift wrap it alongside a true classic, such as Ultra Facial Cream with Squalane, to cover all your bases. The moisturizer with glycerin and squalane is our #1 best-selling face cream worldwide. It provides instant and long-lasting hydration for soft, smooth, healthy-looking skin. Plus, it’s suitable for all skin types and textures, including sensitive skin.
Gift Sets and Value-Sized Buys
If you’re stuck on Father’s Day gift ideas, try a premade set—we have several available this Father’s Day. They’re travel-friendly, and even better, buying pre-bundled presents for Dad will earn you some serious savings (the more to put toward next year’s gift, perhaps).
Ultimate Oil Control Skincare Set
For guys with oily skin, try the Ultimate Oil Control Skincare Set. Inside, he’ll find a jar of Ultra Facial Oil-Free Moisturizer, a lightweight gel moisturizer designed specifically for those with oilier skin types. The non-comedogenic formula provides all-day hydration to help keep the skin feeling balanced and fresh-feeling. It also helps diminish shine and helps reduce the appearance of pores over time. In this gift set, it’s coupled with the award-winning Rare Earth Deep Pore-Minimizing Cleansing Clay Mask, to help unclog pores and visibly refine the skin.
Skincare is important, but so is dad’s grooming routine. This Father’s Day, gift him with everything he needs to achieve a close, comfortable shave. Start off with Facial Fuel Scrub, which cleanses and exfoliates while helping to soften tough facial hair to facilitate a smooth shave. Complete the shaving-oriented Father’s Day present with our Ultimate Shave Collection Gift Set. It contains Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash and Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment For Men, as well as full-sized bottles of Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream-White Eagle and Ultimate Razor Burn & Bump Relief. The former—which is Kiehl’s most popular shave cream—contains menthol and camphor and helps prepare skin for a smooth, comfortable shave. The latter is meant for use post-shave: It helps calm razor-induced irritation and hydrates the skin, allowing for a sting-free finish to his shaving routine. The unique formula also provides gentle exfoliation to help improve the appearance of ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
For The Busy Dad
Got a dad in your life who’s always working? Buy him a coffee and gift him Eye Fuel, which like his favorite morning beverage, contains caffeine. The invigorating formula provides weightless hydration and helps revive tired-looking eyes. With consistent use, it also helps visibly diminish dark circles and puffiness. DIY your own goodie bag and pair it with Age Defender Cream Moisturizer, an anti-aging face cream specifically designed for men’s skin. The powerful formula helps visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while providing gentle exfoliation to help smooth his skin’s texture. It’s suitable for all skin types and can be used both early in the morning and after a long workday to help keep his skin looking (and feeling) its best.
Body Fuel Wash
This year, skip splurging on yet another fancy tie. The best gifts for Dad are those that he’ll actually use. Help him keep his skin healthy-looking with multi-purpose products that are perfect for busy dads who need to streamline their routines. One such pick is Body Fuel Wash. It’s a two-in-one wash for his hair and body that provides a thorough, refreshing cleanse. The ultra-versatile cleanser is suitable for all skin types and comes available in a range of sizes, including jumbo one-liter bottles that’ll last him a long time.
Meanwhile, Facial Fuel Men’s SPF 20 Moisturizer can help simplify his morning skincare routine. Like its non-SPF counterpart, this non-greasy moisturizer with vitamin C and E provides all-day hydration and helps invigorate tired skin. The addition of broad-spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen helps ensure his skin is well-protected from the sun’s damaging rays (and cuts down on the number of steps he’ll need to complete his morning skincare routine).
Body Care Favorites
If your sibling has the skincare gifts covered, you can be in charge of upgrading Dad’s entire body care routine. Stock his shower with men’s body care favorites, such as the aforementioned Body Fuel Wash, which he can use for a thorough clean from head to toe. If he’s more of a bar soap kind of guy, snag him the “Ultimate Man” Body Scrub Soap. The exfoliating bar soap with oat bran and oat kernel meal cleanses away dirt and oil and helps slough away dead skin. The invigorating formula is infused with a refreshing scent that makes for a perfect start to his morning routine.
For the dapper dad, surprise him with our signature Musk Eau de Toilette Spray (cologne always makes for a good Father’s Day gift). The timeless fragrance is inspired by Kiehl’s original “Love Oil,” which is believed to have been developed in the early 1920s. It boasts citrusy top notes of bergamot and orange blossom and dries down to a warm aroma with hints of patchouli, tonka nut, and—of course—musk. It’s warm, cozy, and crowd-pleasing—so much so that you may just decide to buy a bottle for yourself while you’re shopping (the classic scent is unisex!).
Sometimes, the best Father’s Day gifts are those that he chooses for himself. Let him pick what he needs by treating him to a Kiehl’s E-Gift card. You can load it up with any amount from $25 to $250 and have it delivered to his email before he wakes up on Father’s Day. From there, he can shop to his heart’s content and treat himself to whatever he wants.
