Next Sunday (September 2) it is Father’s Day in Australia (yes, we like to do things different from the USA and UK who do it in June). If you are anything like me than you have probably left it to the last minute to get your dad something. Don’t worry, I have compiled a Father’s Day Gift Guide to help us all find gifts.

Before I begin, in my eyes Father’s Day is not just for those who are actually your father. I know many people who grew up without a dad but there were lots of men in their lives who helped raise them. Perhaps a brother, uncle or family friend. This Sunday, think of them as well when you are saying thank-you for always being there for you.

Now for the gifts!


Shave Kit by Dermalogica contains everything a man needs for a smooth shave. The unique 3-step pre-shave routine gets the skin prepared for a blade like nothing else can.


AUS $68 from Dermalogica / USA $35 from Beauty Bridge / UK £41.50 from Dermalogica


Dad’s always need a little help in the cologne department and I always think the best way to go is with a classic, woody fragrance. Aramis is timeless, classic and masculine with top notes of bergamot, gardenia, cumin, freen leaves, Artemisia, clary sage and thyme. Middle notes consist of jasmine, cardamom, clove, patchouli, sandalwood and oakmoss before finishing with base notes of leather, treemoss and amber. You can’t go wrong with this one!


AUS $79 from Myer, David Jones, Perfume Connection, Perfume Empire / USA $50 from Bloomingdale’s / UK £29 from Escentual

VS Sassoon

As mentioned last month, one of my favourite new releases just in time for Father’s Day is the VS Sassoon For Men Limited Edition Speedline Clipper Set. They have also released this fabulous set, the Limited Edition Trimmer Set, which contains a Precision Trimmer with stainless steel blades for extreme precision and sharpness with a six-position comb guide (1.5-4mm) and three grooming comb guides (6, 9, 12mm). The set accessories include a cleaning brush, lubricating oil and luxury storage bag. It comes with two years guarantee.


AUS $42.95 from department stores and leading electrical outlets.

and when all else fails, just go with something delicious …


Famous coffee brand Illy have created their very own coffee liquor that makes for a superb Father’s Day gift … or even a gift for yourself for being such a good child. It is made from 100% Arabica coffee beans, and it is the best tasting coffee liquor I have ever had.


AUS $36.99 from Dan Murphy’s / UK £18.75 from The Whisky Exchange
