Birchbox for men

The gift of options

We all love Birchbox — and there’s no reason that it has to be limited to the ladies! If you have a dad who is hard to shop for, consider a subscription to Birchbox for Men. It’s super cool — every month, he’ll score trial-sized products from some of the best brands out there, from Jack Black to Kiehl’s and many more. And if in his monthly box he discovers a new favorite, you’ll be covered for his birthday!

Eau de Poire et Santal

A night with no commitments

Note to the wise: Men also enjoy a relaxing night at home with a drink, a date (your mom, perhaps?) and a luxury atmosphere. Generally, men prefer more manly scents (duh!), but we think he just may adore the Kat Burki Signature Collection. Eau de Poire et Santal is a woody fragrance with a hint of sweetness.

Presidential presents

Does your dad aspire to the power that is the White House? Back in the day, George Washington selected Number Six as his favorite fragrance, and Caswell-Massey is still around. Their Presidential Collection includes three bath soaps (5.8 ounces), triple-milled for lasting performance and fragrance: Number Six, Washington’s favorite; Almond Cold Cream, selected by Eisenhower; and Jockey Club, the choice of JFK. How cool is that???
