Father’s Day is held on the third Sunday of June in the United Kingdom. It is a day to honor fathers and father figures, such as grandfathers and fathers-in-law. Many people make a special effort to visit their fathers or to send them a card or gifts.
We’ve all experienced it many times in our life – a gift-heavy occasion comes knocking on the door, you’ve forgotten to ask the sly questions necessary regarding a loved one’s interests and you’re all out of gift ideas for the year. Typically, this ends with last-minute shopping and sometimes even disappointing gift openings.
If; however, you’ve noticed your father’s face getting a little shaggy as of late, shopping for Father’s Day might be a bit easier than expected.
Such is the necklace to the wife and the video game to the child, beard grooming products are an easy, obvious and perfect choice to the dad with the beard. He’ll use it, he’ll appreciate it and you can feel confident you got him the perfect gift. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best beard-related gifts for today’s father based on a criteria of quality, value and 2016’s facial hair trends.
What Type of Beard Are Your Shopping For?
This is the most important question which, when not asked an answered, can leave your father with beard products laying around collecting dust. How short does he cut it? Is the style always changing, requiring the possession of more versatile products? Is he the type to use beard oil? These are all things to take into account while shopping. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at some Father’s Day beard gifts ideas.
Father’s Day Gifts for Dads With Beards
For when you’re just not quite sure what to get him. Best case scenario – you just gave him everything he was hoping for in a kit. Worst case scenario – a couple of the items in the kit go unused while the rest still prove to be extremely useful. With some shampoo, balm, oil, scissors and comb all made with the bearded man in mind, you can be sure he’ll find a kit like this extremely useful.
Anyone who takes care of their beard washes it, there’s no doubt about that. That being the case, there are two possible outcomes to getting your father a good beard wash – either he continues using it as usual and appreciates the gift, or he switches from shampoo to some fancy new beard shampoo you got him and still appreciates the gift.
Despite how it may at first appear, scissors which go years without being sharpened aren’t something which will last a lifetime. But, because they get more and more dulled at such a slow rate, your father might not realize how great trimming his beard with a sharp, new pair once was. He’ll remember once he opens your gift, though!
While each and every beard requires different types of maintenance, all of the above gifts should prove to be rather versatile and should do a great job of keeping your father’s beard fresh to at least some degree or another. While other, equally great gifts can be had, it’s hard to find a bearded man who can’t appreciate any of these ideas.
