Father’s Day is the one day of the year when dad gets to spend an entire day being spoiled by his loved ones and doing whatever he wants. Whether it’s a solo hike up the mountain or enjoying a meal with his family. 

But if there’s one thing most dads love, whether they want to admit it or not, is a bit of pampering.

Even though men now have a much wider range of grooming and pampering products to choose from than before, it might still be intimidating for the older dads to select the right products.

It all depends on what kind of guy your father is. Is he the adventurer or businessman? Does he enjoy a good workout at the gym or watching sport from his couch?

Here are a few beauty buys that dad would like no matter what kind of guy he might be:
