The Best Men's-Grooming Gifts for Father's Day

Let's face it-while we love them to pieces, fathers aren't the easiest people to shop for. Here's one thing we have learned: Most dads are reluctant to indulge themselves with a new cologne or a rich moisturizer, but they almost always appreciate the attention. Here, the best Father's Day grooming gifts as compiled by Alison Caporimo for

A shaver and scents

If your father is a dapper guy, we recommend the Braun & Lacoste Essential Grooming Set (P3,318). The kit comes complete with Lacoste Essential and Lacoste Essential Sport colognes, plus the Braun MobileShave M-90 razor. The fragrances are masculine yet light, and the MobileShave is nimble, easy to clean, and (bonus) pretty darned cool-looking.

Hand Helpers

Whether he uses his digits for work or a game of golf, Dad probably doesn't keep a tube of lotion handy. Our solution for rough skin: A strong moisturizer and a skin-smoothing callus remover. The two-sided ceramic device removes calluses, while the nongreasy lotion uses vitamins A and E to hydrate skin.

"Cool Dad" Cologne

More sophisticated than the basic scent of soap, the right cologne can add a little verve to his grooming routine. For an outdoorsman, we love the bold notes of basil, lemon, and cedar wood in Pure Nautica Discovery (P2,058). For a timeless, elegant scent, opt for Acqua di Parma Colonia (P3,486), a citrusy blend of Bulgarian rose, Sicilian citrus fruits, lavender, and verbena. If it's a more modern, daring fragrance you're searching for, we like Giorgio Armani Code for Men (P2,394), a spicy mixture of lemon, orange, and bergamot.

The Right Razor

You can't go wrong with a gift he'll use every day. The new Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor (P546) is built with a blade stabilizer to avoid nicks and a large moisturizing strip infused with mineral oil to keep skin soft and minimize irritation.

Hair Products for Him

Even if your dad is most comfortable in a baseball cap, most men welcome the suggestion of great hair products. Try Redken for Men Densify Texturizing Shampoo (P462) and Dishevel Fiber Cream (P672). The shampoo is formulated with proteins and ceramides to pump up hair growth and moisturize the scalp, while the styling cream adds the perfect amount of texture and control.

The Perfect Travel Set

If the dad on your list is constantly on and off the red-eye, Molton Brown's Men's Traveler 2011 kit (P2,310) manages to be both elegant and useful. The kit includes TSA-friendly versions of their most-loved men's products: Re-Charge Black Pepper Bodywash, Bushukan Citrus Bodywash, Deep-Clean Mineral Ions Facewash, Conditioning Olibanum Supershave, Power-Boost Zinc Anti-Fatigue Hydrator, and Re-Charge Black Pepper Eau de Toilette.

Manly Spa Treatments

While he may cringe at the idea of a seaweed body wrap, almost any dad would be pleased by an old-school shave.
