Father's Day Gift Guide 2013

It's time to think gifts for Dad. They deserve some love, especially if he's like my dad  and pretty much takes care of everything including a new motor in my car.

Thanks to having a beauty blogger daughter The Dad has become more interested in fragrance  and  found more to love than just Polo, his all time favorite .  He also loves a good shampoo  and is pretty picky.

So I've rounded up some great men's scents as well as grooming items that might just fit the bill for your dad or if you have other men-centric gifting coming up soon like birthdays. If you want to check out last year's guide , click here.  It's got several nice scents as well for your gifting ideas.

Ralph Lauren Polo Blue Sport- The newest in the Polo line . Over the years I've noticed that many men love Polo and all it's iterations .   Polo Blue Sport  is a sporty herbal  citrus with mandarin, ginger , sage sandalwood and oakmoss among the notes.
2.5 oz/75 ML  EDT $ 61

Calvin Klein Eternity Summer- The 2013 version of this yearly release  has  a breezy citrus  scent ,  is light and stays close to the skin. Great for hot weather and the guys who want something subtle. Notes include bergamot, mimosa, lavender oil, seagrass , white amber  and dritfwood.

Paco Rabanne One Million- Is  dad good as gold ? How about a fragrance that looks like a gold bar? One Million is a rich but not overly heavy spicy scent  with notes of  grapefruit, mandarin, cinnamon bark, blond leather and patchouli.

Redken For Men Full Impact Shampoo- I mentioned the Dad is  fussy about shampoo right ? Well he adores this new one from Redken. He has thinning hair and this truly gives it a boost as claimed.   Hair has more volume  and  is left  very soft and super clean.

The formula uses patented Intra-Cylane® and protein  which gives lightweight volume  and full looking hair. All good things for a guy like him who works outside all day. Pair this up with some shaving items or styling products for a fun and useful at the same time gift.

10.1 oz bottle $ 12
