Dads are the hardest people to buy into. Ask them what they want, and they will answer “nothing”. Give them what they want and they will love it for years. While Sunday, September 4 may seem like a long way off, Father’s Day is fast approaching. Luckily, Amazon Prime Day is already here, and there are some amazing gift options from tools, skincare, and fragrance (that’s cologne for guys, if he asks).
So we’ve rounded up ‘indulge yourself’ men’s personal care and grooming products that the old man is sure to be delighted with.
Philips, Shaver Series 5000, Wet and Dry Electric Shaver
Does your dad like to play with gadgets? Do you have any traumatic memories of bloodstained bits of toilet paper from his rogue shaving adventures? The Philips Electric Shaver, Shaver Series 5000, Wet and Dry (currently $145 down from $201.64) will make too-close shaves a thing of the past, all while delighting your dad.
The 5000 Series offers a fast, close shave with rounded “comfort cut” blades that glide comfortably over wet and dry facial skin. The three heads are capable of five different movements at once and adapt to the contours of the face, including delicate areas like the neck and jawline. Plus, the razor comes with a clip-on trimmer for mustache and sideburn trimming (you might not want it to grow one, but if it does, it might as well be fine tidy).

L’Oréal Paris Men Expert, Hydra Energetic Cool Eye Roll-On
It’s a common misconception that “older gentlemen” don’t care about their skin – they have to show up to zoom meetings and look like the rest of us. However, they may find it difficult to follow a skincare routine, so it’s best to keep it simple and fun. The L’Oreal Paris, Men Expert, Hydra Energetic Cool Eye Roll-On (currently $7.17, usually $15.95) is an impressively effective product that ticks both the “simple” and “fun” boxes.
Like a cup of coffee for the eyes, the roller ball serum acts instantly and over time to firm the under-eye area. The icy roller acts as an instant vasoconstrictor, tightening the area under the eyes. Then the caffeine goes to work, increasing blood flow and lifting the eye area. Meanwhile, vitamin C will work long term to increase collagen production. Dad should see a decrease in fine lines and sagging.
Boss Bottled, Eau De Toilette
Time for your dad to take his grooming game to the next level? Consider a cologne. Sure, you might not like to think of your dad as “sensually masculine,” but that’s exactly what this cologne is. Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss (currently $44.41, usually $135) has been a brand bestseller since 1998 because it strikes the perfect balance between fresh, woody, and a little spicy. With energizing green notes like apple, oakmoss and plum, Boss Bottled ends with a musky harmony of sandalwood, cedar and vetiver.
Massage Gun, RENPHO C3 Deep Tissue Muscle Massager, Powerful Handheld Percussion Massager
This is a fun self-care product for the whole family – just give it to dad first. The RENPHO C3 Massage Gun (currently $99.99, usually $169.98) is perfect for dads who became Fitbit fanatics later in life. The Renpho treats sore and tired muscles with 3200 per minute “percussion force” to relax muscles in the arms, shoulders, lower back, neck and calves. With six massage heads and 20 different speeds, it’s a self-care tool that can be tailored to your personal needs.

RENPHO, eye massager
Another brilliant personal care tool from Renpho. The Eye Massager (currently $62.97, usually $109.99) is inspired by acupuncture. It applies heat and vibration to relieve tension headaches and eye strain, and promote relaxation and quality sleep. The eye massager also has built-in Bluetooth functionality, so your dad can listen to a playlist, ocean sounds or even a podcast while he unwinds. If Dad is a frequent flyer, the eye massager is portable enough to fit in his carry-on and use on the flight.
To note: The eye massager is not recommended for people with cataracts, eye surgery or retina problems.
Philips, Sonicare DiamondClean 9000 Rechargeable Sonic Electric Toothbrush
Our teeth are with us for life, which is why they need more support as we age. Cavities and receding gums are more common with age, whether due to wear or genetic factors. Either way, depending on his age, your dad might want to up his toothbrush game. The Philips Sonicare, Diamond 9000 Clean Brush Kit (currently $259, usually $379) has everything you need to achieve a blindingly white smile and less time in the dentist’s chair. Sonicare removes ten times the plaque of normal toothbrushes and has a built-in pressure sensor to protect gum health, while smart sensors alert you when you’re brushing too hard or miss a spot. This kit also comes with a smart charging glass and a sleek, rechargeable case (for discreet battery refills in the office).
L’Oréal Paris Men Expert Barber Club 3-in-1 Beard, Face and Hair Wash for Men
Sure, you might have an 11-step K-Beauty routine and cringe at the thought of a 3-in-1 product. But, sometimes you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and L’Oreal Paris’ Barber Club, 3-in-1 Beard, Face, and Hair Wash for Men (currently $10.64, usually $19.95) is a great option for these guys.
With a smooth consistency and rich cedarwood scent, Barber Club gives face, scalp and beard a deep, balancing cleanse without stripping. 1,521 casual Amazon reviewers praise Barber Club’s scent, cleansing abilities, and soothing aftershave properties. Indeed, one man said his girlfriend loved the perfume so much that he had been a “relationship saver”. We can’t promise anything, but it’s a solid win for the guys.
Familife manicure set, 7 in 1 professional manicure set
It could be a real relationship saver if your dad’s partner always gets his mower stolen; now is the time to get him his own kit. Familife, Manicure Set (currently $26.38, usually $33.98) is a classy, quality option for the dad who likes to keep his fingers clean. The stainless steel kit comes with a nail file, nail clipper, toenail clipper, cuticle nipper, nail and cuticle pusher, tweezers and V-shaped cuticle nipper.
