1) Gifts For a Well-Groomed Dad
Wahl Professional Clipper Set
There comes a time when every man starts to lose his hair. Today, rather than trying to hide this natural process, shaving it all off is one of the best ways to disguise baldness. Without the right tools this can be tiresome at home. Visiting the barber once a fortnight is costly. Treat your Dad to this superb pair of clippers from the reputable brand Wahl. This is a professional grade piece of kit. The extremely powerful motor delivers a close cut with absolute precision. Considering the power output, these clippers make relatively little noise and are ideal for balding or thinning hair. As an added bonus, they look great too!
AP Donovan Cut Throat Razor Set
Some designs stand the test of time admirably. A cut throat razor is a classic from previous generations that remains just as effective today. Sure, many people now favor modern multi-bladed or electric razors but why not give your father a burst of nostalgia with this beautiful set from AP Donovan? The top-tier Japanese alloy steel delivers the very closest of shaves. The other materials are equally impressive. From the Madagascar mahogany box to the badger hair brush, this gift set reeks of quality. The heavy blade is offset by a comparably weighty wood in order to balance things out nicely. If your Dad places a premium on the finest things in life, invest in this wonderful cut throat razor and he will never need to buy another!

Are you wondering what to get your Dad for Christmas? Does he have a beard? If so, this platinum version styling kit from Remington could be just the ticket. In the grooming field, Remington is a name you can rely on. This cordless trimmer runs for an exceptional 3 hours due to its lithium power cell.

2) Gifts For a Dad Who Likes To Smell Great
Chanel Allure Homme Eau de Toilette (100ml)
Chanel is a fashion brand with a lengthy history in the field of fragrances. From the iconic No 5 through to more modern interpretations like Allure for men, you really are spoiled for choice. Many contemporary fragrances are extremely over the top. Not so with Chanel’s Allure. If your Dad enjoys the subtle but fine things in life then think about getting him a bottle of this EDT. Citrus is the predominant smell with vetiver and Tonka bean beneath. Allure works equally well at the office or for evening wear so it’s a very flexible scent.
Marc Jacobs by Marc Jacobs For Men
If your father enjoys smelling his best and is also fashion conscious, Marc Jacob’s signature fragrance for men will not disappoint. Jacobs in a New Yorker with his own label as well as spending some years designing for Louis Vuitton. This is a warm, sensual and intimate scent. The top notes are bergamot and cypress with fig leaves, cyclamen and rose de mai as the middle notes. Underscoring this is a base of cedarwood, musk, fig and moss. This eau de toilette is not only decadent in smell but lasts extremely well too. The scent is described as fougère and is an intense burst. This fragrance may be more than a decade old but it has not diminished in quality and is just as relevant today as when it was first released in 2001.
Tom Ford For Men by Tom Ford
To round out our selection of three fragrances, here’s an eau de toilette from another fashion heavyweight, Tom Ford. This absolutely classic scent will take your father hurtling back to the 1970s! Tom Ford has encapsulated masculinity in a bottle. The ingredients are too numerous to list but the smell could best be described as woody and floral. It’s sensual, potent and smoky. Treat the man who has done everything for you to something truly exotic and rich. You really don’t need to use a great deal for a long-lasting burst of fragrance so this gift will go a long way. It’s not cheap but your father deserves the best.
3) Gifts For a Dad Who Loves Taking Pictures
Canon PowerShot ELPH 160 Digital Camera
Cell phones have become the default option for taking pictures. Although they are very convenient, the quality is often questionable even with expensive smart phones. If your Dad likes snapping photos then buy him a dedicated camera. This Canon PowerShot shoots at a highly impressive 20MP. The sleek gray camera comes with an understated case and some nice accessories. Your father will enjoy a 32GB memory card and also a card reader. He will also find a tabletop tripod and screen protector within the pack. This Canon is small, powerful and will deliver high quality pictures for lasting memories.
PowerLead BP88 Digital Video Waterproof Camera
If you are asking yourself once again what to get your Dad for Christmas, this could be the gift you have been looking for. If your father loves watersports as well as taking photos, this superb camera from PowerLead is fully waterproof to a depth of 10 meters. It’s highly durable with an anti-shock feature to offer further protection. It’s not the sharpest definition at 5MP – think iPhone quality of pictures – but this is balanced out by the fact you can use it at the beach without worrying about damage. This camera performs strongly at night and underwater. The PowerLead supports micro SD cards and comes with a USB charger. If photos are not enough, the BP88 can also take video. This is a very versatile gift for the photo-loving father.
GoPro HERO3: White Edition
The cameras offered by GoPro make taking pictures or video on the move a cinch. Whether your father cycles or rides a motorbike, likes to jetski or snowboard, the HERO3 White Edition makes capturing footage safely remarkably simple. A free GoPro app and software are available. The HERO3 is very compact and lightweight at just 2.6 ounces. It’s equipped with high caliber audio into the bargain. WiFi is built in which makes sharing your media a straightforward and instant option. It’s waterproof, has a good range of photo modes and a very wide-angle lens. If you have a Dad who does not want to compromise the quality of photos and videos while engaging in rough activities, make his Christmas when he opens his new GoPro camera.
4) Gifts For a Dad Who Loves To Travel
Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses
If you have a father who loves to travel, pick him up a pair of the timeless Aviator sunglasses from Ray-Ban. The design harks back to 1937 when Ray-Ban rolled out this model to cater for American aviators. There is a choice of lens from the classic to mirror, flash or polarized as well as other more specialized options. Try dropping some hints in the lead-up to Christmas if you are not sure of your father’s tastes. Style comes with unparalleled comfort, quality and performance. If your Dad jets around a lot then give him something to remember you by as he travels. Ray-Ban sunglasses simply never go out of fashion.

For any frequent flyer, a decent set of luggage is paramount. Merax offer excellence and affordability in one appetizing package. These cases are available in a wide variety of colors. We suggest choosing something like the orange featured. This simplifies the task of spotting the luggage on the carousel rather than scouring a sea of identical black cases. The 3-piece set covers all bases. Whether it’s something to carry on the flight or a full-size suitcase, spoil your Dad for choice. The wheels make lugging a dead weight unnecessary and they function in several directions for ease of use. The handle has a 3-step telescoping system which is as durable as the hard shell of the cases themselves. For any discerning traveler, the Merax Travelhouse set is guaranteed not to disappoint.
Montblanc 111142 Extreme 3CC Woven Carbon Leather Passport Holder
When a man reaches a certain age, he appreciates the heritage of labels like Montblanc. Although most famous for their magnificent fountain pens, they also provide a full range of accessories including this glorious passport holder. Checking in is always a tedious procedure so why not liven it up for your Dad with this stylish but understated carbon leather holder? Losing a passport involves serious inconvenience so make it tougher for him to forget with this thoughtful gift. There are 3 credit card slots inside too so there will be plenty of room for his cash and Amex alongside his passport.
5) Gifts For a Watch-Loving Dad
Skagen Holst Stainless Steel Watch with Brown Leather Band
If your Dad is a watch aficionado, take his breath away with the highly unusual Skagen Holst. You will not see many of these around so he will feel truly special while wearing it. It will also remind him of you each time he glances at his wrist. Skagen are a Danish company focusing on stripped-down and tasteful design. This model comes with a rounded face finished in stainless steel and a supple, brown calfskin strap. It’s water resistant to 50 meters so, while not cut off for serious diving, it will certainly stand up to a quick dip in the pool or sea. The great news, too, is that this watch will not break the bank either.
Casio G-Shock Black Solar Sport Watch
A man needs several decent wristwatches. Different occasions demand a different timepiece. Casio introduced the G-Shock range to great acclaim back in 1983 and they have kept them coming ever since. The GW7900B-1 is a solar powered model which keeps time across 48 cities. This makes it a smart choice if your Dad travels often. The case is resin with a mineral window while the band is also finished in resin. It’s water resistant up to 200 meters which means that it can cope with hardcore water sports fuss-free. Looking stealthy and stylish in all black, this G-Shock is a rugged watch which should last your father for many years to come.
Michael Kors Pennant Chronograph
If you are looking for a watch which could be used on a daily basis as well as for dressy occasions, Michael Kors offers the perfect solution with this rose gold hued chronograph. The charcoal dial complements the strap beautifully and the sub-dials are colored maroon to complete the co-ordinated look. The Pennant is adequately water resistant for short spells of swimming but not recommended for serious watersports. The rose gold is more muted than on the female equivalent and is perfectly suited for the most important man in your life.
