BEST FATHER’S DAY GIFTS 2012

Father’s Day will be here soon and dad’s schedule is filled with barbeques, parties and vacations. Its time for him to look and feel his best by ‘summerizing’ his grooming routine. Men’s grooming experts have selected the best gifts for every type of dad from The Art of Shaving, LACOSTE and HUGO BOSS.
The Sports Man: LACOSTE’s newest fragrance, EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Rouge. The scent is based on a triple blend of exotic spices – Madagascan black pepper, Indian ginger and Guatemalan cardamom – which creates a dynamic, sporty fragrance that embodies the energy of its namesake color. Rouge joins brothers Blanc, Bleu and Vert to complete the EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Collection.  $62, available at Lacoste Boutiques and lacoste.com. My husband had an old favorite and it was time for a change. This scent is subtle enough for everyday wear. It's a masculine scent and I think it will become one of those classic scents we keep coming back to.
The Manly Man: The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave OCEAN KELP from the world’s leading premium shaving brand, The Art of Shaving. The OCEAN KELP Collection introduces the brand’s newest scent and first lightweight, water-based shaving regimen. The lightness of OCEAN KELP delivers The Art of Shaving’s famous close and comfortable shave while leaving the skin feeling clean and fresh. The collection also includes the brand’s first ever Pre-Shave Gel and After-Shave Lotion.$100, available at The Art of Shaving Stores and at theartofshaving.com. My husband loved using this set. it smells wonderful and leaves the skin with a light lingering scent. The shaving cream was creamy and it left him feeling smooth. Now that he's used it, I don't think he will want to go without it. Hmmm. I'm a bit jealous that he suddenly enjoys shaving so much! Seriously, I think I want a set for shaving my legs. Does it come in pink?
The Sophisticate: The alluring evening version of the HUGO BOSS classic best-seller BOSS BOTTLED.—BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT. The heart of the fragrance blends a new type of masculine floralcy, combining green and nutty cardamom with a synthesis of sweet Jasmine and African Violet. With a purposeful, edgy, masculine character BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT. instills the BOSS Man with the confidence that will make him feel irresistible during those summer nights.$67, available at Nordstrom and nordstrom.com. It's a little spicer scent than the EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Rouge and perfect for a night out! We loved testing it out!


Disclosure: We received what can only be described as Christmas in a box (thank you) for this review. Opinions are mine (or my husbands) and not influenced in any way. These are all great gift ideas and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them!

In fact, there are a lot of best father's day gifts, but I always go with perfume and shaving kits because they are useful things.
