Father’s Day Gift Guide: Ideas Fit for Dad

I’ve been sharing my favorite Father’s Day present picks all week long! And today, I’ve got some great ones for you. Perfect for any budget, in any location for any aged dad.

A gift of Nostalgia & Luxury. Let’s start with a stroll down Memory Lane. For a gift with a little bit of luxury from yesterday, get Dad a professional shave. There are shaving salons everywhere these days, it seems. To make it easy on yourself, use Google or Yelp to find the most highly reviewed shaving salons in your dad’s city. No specially designated shaving salon in your town yet? Your dad’s barber probably does a great shave or knows someone who does.
Ask him/her for a referral. Then get your dad a gift certificate so he can get the shave whenever he wants – before an important meeting, a high school reunion or for a date nigth out with mom. Or if you would rather give him a shaving set he can use at home, check out The 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave from The Art of Shaving ($115 at Sephora).

Royal Softness. Treat your dad like royalty with the brand that’s the king of softness – Royal Highnies ($79.50). Their boxers and pajamas are loved by southern gentlemen and celebrities alike. Between their 400 count Pima cotton boxer shorts (which won’t shrink, run true to size and come two pairs to a package) and their lounge, pajama-style pants($79.50 for one pair), Dad will feel comforted day and night. And with the Rolex-style crown insignia stitched on their products, any man who loves luxury will love these luxurious personal linens.

Cologne at a fraction of the cost. If you’re on a budget – and who isn’t –  buy Dad his favorite cologne or help him discover a new one. These days, discount stores such as Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, Loehman’s, Nordstrom Rack and more have a bevy of fragrances that Dad will love – at a deeply discounted price. Not only will he smell like the handsome man he is but he’ll feel good knowing that his wife and kids have good taste.

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dapper dads out there! Hope you’re spoiled silly on Sunday!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: LAVANILA 2-in-1 Body Wash in Vanilla Grapefruit

Happy In-My-Tub-Tuesday, beauties!
I’m a little bummed because my cold water knob in my bathtub is out and I have just fallen in love with this new body wash from LAVANILA!

You may remember my prior grapefruit gushing over LAVANILA products. I am a big, big, BIG fan of their all-natural, sweet-smelling deodorant and fragrance. And I am happy to report that The Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 is just as delightfully delicious as all of their other products!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: LAVANILA The Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 in Vanilla Grapefruit ($14 for 8 oz.)


This time-maximizing 2-in-1 shower & shave is a crisp cocktail of sparkling pink grapefruit juice with a splash of warm Madagascar vanilla. The result? A body wash so delicious-smelling that you want to want to drink it! But please don’t. This all-natural, vegan & cruelty-free body wash gently cleanses while providing enough moisture and slip for a smooth shave.

Hydrating coconut & rosehip oils partner with soothing aloe & calendula for a lusciously lathering wash that hydrates and quenches skin while preventing irritation and dryness.

Yet again, my senses are satiated and my skin feels soft thanks to the lovely Lavanila!!


In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream (Pomegranate Raspberry)

Okay, one guess as to why I originally fell in love at first sight – in a completely shallow way – with this shaving cream?

Pretty in Pink: Eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Pomegranate Raspberry

Rightamundo. It’s pink. A perfect, pretty, bathtub-worthy shade of pink.

I’m a little like Shelby from Steel Magnolias when it comes to pink. “My colors are BLUSH and BASHFUL, Mama.”

In fact, it has gotten me into trouble because I tend to buy anything pink. Yes, my house can get a little pepto-bismol and clutterbugish as a result.

So I have started only keeping pink things that I looooo-oooove.

Eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Pomegranate Raspberry falls into that category.

It was love at first sight and TRUE LOVE at first shave.

Made with natural aloe, oat, shea butter and antioxidant vitamins E and C to leave your skin looking radiantly healthy (and paraben & phthalate-free), this non-foaming cream boosts skin’s moisture levels and keeps it smooth long after you’re done shaving. Best part? You can shave wet or dry. That’s right. That’s how ridiculously moisturizing this pretty, pink lady is.

Party tonight and you forgot to shave?
No sweat, sweetheart!!

Grab that precious pink bottle and a razor and your skin will be silky smooth and party-pretty in no time.

Nervous about the scent? Don’t be. Even the most scentsitive will love the mild fruit punch scent of Eos. Totally pleasant and not at all overpowering.

Another pretty bonus? No rusty ring for your tub as this soft-to-the-touch bottle is totally recyclable.

Pretty in pink, indeedy.
