OMGBart Takes Over: His Expert Picks for Father’s Day Gifts

A sincere thank you to our friend Bart for compiling this amazing guide for all of the fathers in our lives. Check him out at or on Instagram @omgbart.

Father’s Day is June 21st and some of us may already be starting to panic searching for that perfect gift. Finding something dad needs, will actually use, and would never treat himself to is no easy task. And while we have idolized our fathers since our childhood and see them as the ultimate sources of wisdom, there is consistently one area in which their knowledge remains pretty basic: grooming. To help broaden pop’s self-care horizons, I have come up with a list of tried-and-true essentials that will make him look his absolute best.

Jaxon Lane Perfect Skin Gift Set

Forever a minimalist, dad is most likely using a cleanser and a moisturizer. And that’s great! The Jaxon Lane Perfect Skin Gift Set will elevate his grooming basics and implement new self-care habits, like exfoliation, hydration, and UV protection. The brand behind the fatigue fighting Bro Mask expanded its range with Shake And Wake, an exfoliating enzyme face wash and Rain Or Shine, a borderline traceless daily sunscreen. There is a chance he’ll be sceptical about steps new to him but both formulas are easy to use and will deliver remarkable anti-aging results in the long run. $80

Huron The Big 3 Kit

Help dad jump start his day by turning a quick shower into an invigorating sensory experience with the Huron Big 3 Kit. He will love the crisp and fresh aroma of the Body Wash that leaves the skin clean and invigorated without that dreaded dryness left behind by some bars of soap. Since cleansing and exfoliating are crucial but may sound complex to a minimalist, the Face Wash accomplishes both to prep the skin before a shave. Lastly, the lightweight Face Lotion has a quick absorbing gel texture to keep his complexion looking healthy and shine-free all day long. $38 at

Harry’s Winston Shave Set

Even if your dad is like most and “doesn’t need anything”, he will always appreciate an upgrade to his shaving routine. Surprise him with the stylish Harry’s Winston Shave Set featuring a sleek razor with die-cast zinc and polished chrome finish. The set also includes a full-size refreshing Shave Gel, German engineered replacement blades, and a travel cover to keep the Winston blade safely protected. For an extra charge, you can monogram the handle for the ultimate personal touch. $25 at

V76 by Vaughn Live Freely Love Boldly Travel Kit

If your dad is counting the days till we can travel safely again, the V76 by Vaughn Live Freely Love Boldly will make the perfect gift. The collection of best-sellers includes a complete hair and body care assortment to keep him clean-cut and handsome while on the go. It’s also a chance for him to discover new favorites so you can surprise him with full-size items later in the year. As a V76 hair styling formula loyalist, I am confident this travel set will impress both the minimalists and grooming enthusiasts alike. $31 at

L’OCCITANE Eau de Cedrat Collection

Dad is a creature of habit and rarely gets adventures with fragrance. There is a chance he’s been wearing the same cologne for decades. Treat him to a L’Occitane Eau de Cedrat Collection which is bound to give his fragrance wardrobe a summer makeover. The set includes full-size Eau de Toilette and Shower Gel as well as a mini After-Shave Cream Gel — all infused with a zesty blend of citrus and woodsy notes. Cedrat delivers a unique fragrance experience that bridges modern and traditional resulting in a refreshing, masculine blend that wears great day and night. $84


Dads love gadgets so it shouldn’t take long to get him interested in the genius FOREO LUNA 2 for Men device. It may look a bit sci-fi at first, but it’s incredibly easy to use. Simply dispense any face wash on the bristled side and press the power button. As you move it across the face, it delivers a deeper clean to prep the skin for the closest shave. After a double beep, turn the device over to the smooth side for an anti-aging massage as the T-sonic pulsations stimulate collagen production resulting in a refreshed and toned appearance. It’s a splurge but I’ve had mine for years. Another perk: you only charge it twice a year. $169 (but constantly on sale for a much lower price) on

Alchemy Goods Elliott Travel KitSadly, it is entirely possible your dad is still using the toiletry bag you remember from your childhood vacations. It’s time for an upgrade and I can assure you, he will absolutely love theAlchemy Goods Elliott Travel Kit. He doesn’t need to be a car enthusiast to appreciate this unique and practical find, which is constructed entirely from upcycled car tires (including the zipper toggle which is an actual tube valve). Perfectly sized to fit all his grooming essentials, it will quickly become an irreplaceable gym or travel bag companion. The thoughtfully constructed dopp kit is completely waterproof and both lining and stitching comes in a choice of red, blue, or green. $38 on
