If you’re on the hunt for presents for Dad that he’ll love (and will actually use!), you don’t have to compromise on packaging or ingredients. You come to Nourished Life because you love living a life as healthy, sustainable and toxin-free as possible, and buying a great gift doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice those values.
This Father’s Day, we’ve put together our guide to the best 2020 Father’s Day presents across skincare, shaving, styling products and more- they’re all toxin free, all natural, and all guaranteed to make Dad smile.
Read on for our top Father’s Day gift ideas!
Shaving and styling products for Dad
The Weleda Shaving Cream is an absolute essential, ideal for men of all ages and a welcome addition to any grooming kit. This natural shaving cream is rich in shaving soap, almond milk, goat’s milk and pure plant oils to provide a thick, foamy lather to help Dad achieve a close shave. Pair it with the Weleda After Shave Balm for a duo Dad will love.
Perfect for the multitasking Dad, the Ethique Tip-to-Toe Men’s Shampoo & Shaving Bar is designed for fuss-free grooming. Clay, cocoa butter and orange work to nourish the skin, the packaging is entirely compostable and one bar is the equivalent of three bottles of liquid shampoo!
Another shaving gel Dad will love is the Sanctum Shave Gel, which is soap-free and contains anti-inflammatory ingredients making it perfect for men with sensitive skin who still want the smoothest possible shave.
For the Dad who loves a well styled beard, opt for The Bearded Chap Original Beard Balm. This natural balm works to protect, condition and style beards of any length, with a subtle grapefruit fragrance and a non-greasy finish.
If Dad’s beard needs some extra TLC (or if it’s looking a little bit dry!), he will love the Black Chicken Remedies Beard Oil. The ultimate beard taming formula, this fast absorbing oil contains vitamin E, cedarwood, lime and cajuput to tame frizz without leaving Dad’s beard feeling oily and heavy.
Natural skincare gifts for men
To help Dad boost his skincare routine, gift him some natural men’s skincare products and set him up with a new daily ritual. Start with a cleanser. The Skin Juice Man Brew Wash It Down Face Cleanser is perfect for men with drier skin as it’s foam free and doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils, while the Sanctum Men’s Facial Wash is great for any Dads who love a more traditional, foaming cleanser.
A favourite amongst the men of Nourished Life, the Weleda Moisture Cream for Men is the perfect natural moisturiser for all skin types and will help to protect Dad’s skin from the elements. If your Dad has drier skin or needs a little more intense protection from environmental stressors, opt for the Speick Men Intensive Cream which contains rich natural moisturising ingredients including organic Shea Butter, organic Rosemary Extract and organic Aloe Vera Gel.
Want to put together a little natural skin gift set for Dad? We recommend the Sanctum Men’s Face & Body Scrub and Sanctum Face Moisturiser- two seriously simple steps to better skin (the simpler, the better!).
The best natural body products for Father’s Day
When people are looking to make the switch to natural products, deodorant is often a great place to start as many traditional deodorants contain toxins, heavy metals and irritants. There are so many natural deodorants available now, so save Dad a lengthy decision-making process by gifting him one of our favourites! The Weleda Men 24h Roll-On Deodorant has a refined, earthy, masculine scent with hints of citrus to provide all-day freshness, and it harnesses that citrus to kill the bacteria that causes body odour.
The Noosa Basics Organic Deodorant Stick in Charcoal & Eucalyptus is another great Father’s Day option, using activated charcoal and organic tapioca to instantly kill the bacteria that can causes odour. If your Dad isn’t afraid to try something a little different, he’ll love the Earths Purities Men’s Natural Deodorant Paste. The texture might not be what he’s used to, but he’ll love its ability to keep the body dry and fresh by absorbing wetness and neutralising odour thanks to Bentonite Clay, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and Diatomaceous Earth.
Another great gift for Dad’s who love a good multitasker is the Benecos For Men Only Body Wash 3in1. Nourishing, hydrating and uplifting, this natural gel works to cleanse the face, the hair and the body. He’ll also love the Sanctum Men’s Shampoo & Body Wash, made with 84% certified organic ingredients and leaving the hair and skin with a beautiful, masculine wood fragrance.
Does your Dad already have his natural skincare routine down to a fine art? Give Dad something you know he’ll use- the Boody Men’s Original Boxers! A natural alternative to the “socks and jocks” we’re sure he usually asks for, Boody’s boxers are made from a natural thermo-regulating and moisture-wicking fabric to keep Dad cool in summer and warm in winter.
Father’s Day is a great time to celebrate your Dad and thank him for another year of hard work and support. Treat Dad to some products to up his self-care routine and leave him feeling fresh, cool and ready for whatever life throws at him.
