The RY Guide to Father’s Day Gift-Giving


$ – Cheap Yet Cheerful Choices

Even if you love the men in your life to the ends of the earth (which we’re 110% sure that you do), sometimes your budget isn’t conducive to showering dad or grandpa with gifts. That’s okay – don’t let your funds limit your gift giving, but instead, pick up a few new faves at insane prices with RY.

Silver Bullet are the mother of all electrical, yet their prices are always pretty ridiculous – I’m talking straighteners and curlers for less than a nice meal out. But, what does that mean for dad? Make his grooming routine easier than ever with a battery-powered trimmer like the Silver Bullet Nose and Ear Trimmer ($9.88). Not only is this baby less than $10 (!!) but it actually does the job, effectively clipping away those unsightly hairs from dad’s nose or ears.

Or, perhaps it’s time to give dad the gift of a good, clean shave. Prevent against any nicks and cuts with the Uppercut Deluxe Shave Cream ($18). This minimally-fragranced soothing and cleansing cream will definitely help the recipient achieve that perfect shave they’ve been looking for. With eucalyptus oil and coconut oil to help reduce blemishes and moisturise the skin, not only does it help razors to glide across the skin with ease, it also contributes to skin health!

Although a high-end shower gel may seem like a waste, we promise it’s not–we can guarantee dad will love a calming shower (or even a bath!) using the Truefitt & Hill Men’s 1805 Bath and Shower Gel ($32.49). The high foaming formula makes this ideal for a bubble bath when dad or grandpa is feeling a little out of sorts, or can simply be used daily in the shower for a nice lather. Plus, there are a few more fragrances in the range so you can tailor your gifting to dad’s favourite scent!


$$ – Mid Range Must-Haves

Is your dad a regular jet-setter? Turn his next long-haul trip into a pamper session with the Vitaman Travel Pack ($99), designed for the guy on the go. Featuring 6 bottles that are the ideal size for a few weeks away, dad will be covered when it comes to his skincare, haircare and shaving needs. Aloe vera gel, tea tree extract and other soothing botanicals ensure that dad is well-looked after and won’t suffer any irritations while he’s living it up overseas. Plus, the gorgeous black travel case will fit everything he’ll need while abroad and should slot perfectly into his suitcase or carry on luggage.

Take things back to Edwardian times by gifting your pop or dad a shaving soap bowl, such as the Truefitt & Hill Men’s Luxury Shaving Soap Bowl ($43.45). These expertly crafted, uniquely designed bowls come with a cake of soothing soap that dad can dip his razor into while shaving. Then, once he’s all up, repurpose it as a shaving bowl to hold warm water! They look amazing on the bathroom counter, and are designed using only the best materials, so this is sure to be a gift that lasts dad a lifetime.

Keep dad’s skin looking fresh and healthy with the Payot Men Ultra Comfort Duo Pack ($72.01), comprised of a Foaming Protective Gel and a Calming Repair Balm. This luxe skincare brand are known globally for their quality ingredients, effective formulations and high standing in the industry. Dad’s pores will be free of impurities, any fine lines will be erased and his skin will feel hydrated and healthy.



$$$ – Luxury Loves

Treat dad’s complexion with the FOREO Luna for Men 3-in-1 Cleansing Device ($249), a luxury electrical skincare gadget that will help reduce blackheads, dry skin and more. This silicone cleansing mitt does three jobs all at once, effectively cleansing and dredging up impurities, acting as a pre-shave exfoliant and working to ward off ageing signs. With T-Sonic technology and 2x the power of the previous FOREO models, it only takes two minutes a day to achieve all of these exciting benefits and bring about better skin. Dad will love this totally waterproof, easily portable skincare saviour.

Although this one won’t break the bank as much as a new skincare device, the Vitaman Age Control Face Masks 3 Pack ($60.01) is still what we’d call luxury. Give dad the gift of the most gorgeous skin he’s seen in his lifetime with this trio pack of moisturising and age-defying sheet masks from men’s brand Vitaman. Unique technology helps to eradicate fine lines and wrinkles and antioxidants protect the skin from further damage, warding off free radicals. Ingredients including marine collagen and algae extract penetrate the skin for a fresher, more youthful appearance. You’ll hardly be able to recognise dad when he’s done!

If your dad covets the most perfect shave known to man, with an old-fashioned twist, we love the Baxter Men’s 1 2 3 Shave Kit ($150). This gift pack contains a Badger Shaving Brush, Shaving Cream and an After Shave Balm, all of which combine effortlessly to make your dad or granddad’s grooming routine easy and elegant. Not only is this trio of favourites a bathroom counter staple, but each product has been lovingly crafted and is packed full of beneficial ingredients.
