The Gritty Pretty Father’s Day Gift Guide 2023

Father’s Day gift ideas to win you some serious brownie points with the old man (and keep him looking sharp).


Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinol Serum

Help the important men in your life stay youthful with the Sunday Riley A+ High Does Retinol Serum. Designed to help speed up skin cell renewal and fight signs of ageing, this serum—with the inclusion of five per cent retinoid ester blend and one per cent liposomal-encapsulated retinol blend—improves the look of congested and UV damaged skin with ease.


111SKIN Pollution Defence Booster

Dad needs a strong skin barrier, too! Enter: 111SKIN’s Pollution Defence Booster. Formulated with defensive peptides and antioxidants to shield the complexion against external aggressors and safeguard the skin. Pitch it to him that he needs strong skin to match his strong muscles and he will 100 per cent commit to applying it daily.


Nuface Trinity Device

For the tech-savvy man in your life, the Nuface Trinity Device is a bougie present to gift dad on his special day. A non-invasive device that works to define facial contours, reduce wrinkles and tighten skin sagging by stimulating deep tissues and muscles, this device will have his cheekbones and jawline snatched in no time.


Officine Universelle Buly Unctuous Shaving Cream

Every man needs a luxe shaving cream to keep his stubble in check. Our favourite? The Officine Universelle Buly Unctuous Shaving Cream. Working to soothe the skin while providing the perfect amount of slip for a close shave, this shaving cream will have your dad/grandpa/uncle looking sharp in a tick!


SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter Advanced 

No skincare routine is complete without a moisturiser—and that goes for dad’s routine, too. The SkinCeauticals A.G.E. Interrupter Advanced anti-ageing cream is formulated to target visible signs of aging by stimulating collagen production and helping to counteract the loss of elasticity and firmness that can happen as we get older. Infused with ingredients like Proxylane, a wild fruit flavonoid blend and glycyrrhetinic acid, Dad will be looking younger in no time


Lé Bent The Blueys 5 Panel Run Cap

For the adventure dad, there is a chic new brand to add to his wardrobe. Lé Bent’s The Blueys 5 Panel Run Cap is a great gift to get dad into the great outdoors. A high-performance, technical hat that wicks away sweat and is designed to ensure maximum airflow and breathability, this ultra-cool brand will be everywhere in no time so get in quick.


Apple Airpods Max

If you’re as sick as we are of hearing the sports commentary blaring out of dad’s phone (why is it that they can’t manage the volume button?), the Apple Airpods Max are the perfect Father’s Day gift. High-performance Bluetooth headphones that are also super comfortable to wear, these will keep the tech-savvy dad very happy. 


Asics Gel Kayano 30

So, your dad’s signed up for his first half marathon. Make sure he has all the gear (while he gets an idea) with the Asics Gel Kayano 30 runners. A revolutionary iteration of the iconic model that focuses on delivering holistic, adaptive stability and premium comfort underfoot, these are ideal for dads who are looking for a combination of moderate support and high-cushioning while they pound the pavement.


Five By Flynn Crew Neck Osaka Chain Stitch

Make dad the coolest guy on the block with the Five By Flynn Crew Neck Osaka Chain Stitch. An uber-cool oversized crew neck that will keep him warm (and chic), this jumper is guaranteed to earn you some serious brownie points with the old man. Plus, you can steal it from him!


Murdock London Matt Mud

No more bad hair days for dad! Surprise him with the Murdock London Matt Mud and watch his mane look better in seconds. A shine-free styling clay with strong hold, this formula uses oil-absorbing kaolin and vitamin E for firm hold and dry finish. You’re welcome, dad.


Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder

Don’t let dad’s hair fall flat by adding the Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder to his routine. A multi-tasking wonder powder, this product is part dry shampoo, style extender and volumiser in one. Whether dad has fine hair, oily hair or a lack of hair (wink, wink) he will be thrilled with this gift.


Aveda Volumising Tonic

For weightless volume that adds shine, the Aveda Volumising Tonic is a great option for gifting this dad’s day. Whether your uncle is looking for a boost or your grandpa is reminiscing on the ‘80s, you really can’t go wrong adding this to your cart.


Hair Ritual By Sisley Revitalizing Fortifying Serum For The Scalp


We all know the importance of scalp care for hair health, but does dad? He will soon. This Hair Ritual By Sisley Fortifying Serum helps to create a healthier scalp by combining highly concentrated plant-based extracts, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Designed to be applied every two days initially for an intensive treatment, this serum will have dad’s scalp and hair feeling revitalised and refreshed.

Fresh and sporty just like dad, the CHANEL Allure Homme Sport cologne is a great Father’s Day gifting option in 2023. An invigorating scent filled with fresh citrus notes and spicy pepper accords, this fragrance will be dad’s favourite in no time. 



With notes of vetiver, lavendar and woody vanilla, the PACO RABANNE Phantom EDT is the ultimate masculine fragrance. Not only will the fragrance appeal to a sense of ruggedness, but the bold robot-inspired bottle is sure to put a smile on dad’s face. 


D.S. & DURGA Portable Fireplace Candle 

The D.S. & DURGA Portable Fireplace Candle is exactly what its name suggests. Created to instil feelings of being right next to a crackling fire, the candle smells just like a roaring fireplace. The scent has notes of dwarf pine wood, oak ash and birch which infuse to create the perfect woody fragrance.


REN Clean Skincare Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Cream

Dads need body care, too! And we can’t go past the REN Clean Skincare Atlantic Kelp & Magnesium Anti-Fatigue Body Cream. Working to replenish the skin’s moisture levels with essential minerals and containing energising magnesium to soothe and restore, this is a great Father’s Day gift if dad is new to self-care. Bonus points are awarded for its non-greasy texture which means dad will have next to nothing to complain about.
