Or, try the Art of Shaving 4 Elements Starter Kit, with essential oils ($25). The one-week supply of pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm, and shaving brush.
For a fuller Art of Shaving experience, give Dad The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Carry-on (60), with essential oils. He’ll get pre-shave oil, shaving cream, a shaving brush in a zip-close pouch.
- Art of Shaving Pure Badger Travel Brush – Nordstrom
The Art of Shaving Badger Shaving Brush Present your Father with the brush ($55) alone, or pair it with Shaving Cream, pre-shave lotion, etc.
Note that the Art of Shaving 4 Elements Starter Kit includes a trial badger shaving brush; and the 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave kit includes an unspecified full size shaving brush.
Macy’s, Ulta, Sephora and Nordstrom carry the Art of Shaving line. Often local stores, other than the one listed next to featured products, carry the same items.
For excellent skin care, get Api the Kiehl’s Men’s Starter Kit. Includes body scrub soap, facial moisture treatment, shave cream, face wash, and hand salve.
KICKS WITH STYLE
Get Dad the Hudson Kiltie Tassel shoe in burgundy or black to enhance his wardrobe. Leather inside and out in genuine hand sewn construction.

And if he’d prefer more casual in his style, gift him the Mason 4 Eye Oxford deck shoes. Leather upper and lining.
Skin vs.Shirts – Advantage Shirts
Dad might be more laid-back in his style. And if he wears long sleeve shirts no matter the season, you’ll love that you can get several of these great JOE Joseph Abboud® Woven Shirts at great prices. If Dad is the really frugal type and shops ahead, he’ll appreciate being ready to style in cooler weather.
You’ll find a few short sleeve bargains, like this jcp Gingham Shirt.
Or, this Van Heusen Button-Front broadcloth hirt.
How might this Seersucker Candy Stripe/Anchor Bow Tie work in Dad’s repertoire? It’s reversible. I think the classy bow tie falls outside of the fatherly tie ban. See 8 pages with other bow tie options here. Although just about clothing store will have bow ties.
This American Tourister Wheeled Boarding Bag makes sure Dad arrives in style and well packed. In line skate wheels ensure convenience and easy mobility.
