Thursday, June 14, 2012 Father's Day!

Happy Thursday!

Father's Day is coming up and I have yet to get a gift for my Dad and my brother-in-law. :/
I don't want to get them just another tie or a shirt, so I decided it's best to check out Apothica's men's products.
And I gotta say, it's a brilliant idea! :D

Here are some gift ideas from

1. The Art of Shaving: The 4 Elements of Perfect Shave Unscented ($100) -

The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements Of Perfect Shave Unscented

The Art of Shaving - The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Full Size Kit - Unscented finally gives a little something extra to men everywhere - the perfect, unparalleled luxury of a comfortably close shave.

Each set is tailored to complete a man's ultimate shaving experience with the Pre-Shave Oil (2 fl.oz.), Shaving Cream (5.3 fl.oz.), After-Shave Balm (4 fl.oz.), and the Pure Badger Shaving Brush. Whether you like to primp, or just want to perfect and get it over with, this is your single stop for all things shaving.

My Dad doesn't like using scented shaving cream, so this is perfect for him!

2. The Art of Shaving: Fusion Chrome Collection - Brush & Razor Stand ($100) -

The Art of Shaving Fusion Chrome Collection - Brush & Razor Stand

Take care of the tools that carefully craft your complexion. Display your razor and brush with style and elegance with The Art of Shaving Fusion Chrome Collection - Razor & Brush Stand. Handcrafted in sleek, polished chrome, not only will your tools look tidier, the razor will also be allowed to efficiently drain water away while properly maintaining the handle between each use.

Sounds cool, huh?!
I bet my Dad hasn't even heard of such a product before = perfect! ;)

3. The Art of Shaving: Skin Care Kit ($65) -

The Art of Shaving Skin Care Kit

Gentlemen, start your engines and head towards perfect skin. For the modern man who wants smooth skin minus the fuss and frills, the Art of Shaving Skin Care Kit is a must-have.

Each set contains the Facial Wash (4 fl.oz.), Facial Scrub (3 fl.oz.), Moisturizer (1.7 fl.oz.), and After-Shave Mask (sample). Featuring gentle oils such as Olive and Jojoba, you can soften and smooth without any unnecessary and over-the-top procedures.

If I am dedicated to my skincare regimen, my sister is a whole different level of dedicated! So, it's only natural that my brother-in-law is now as concerned about his skin as my sister is with hers, haha! ;)

4. Jack Black: On-The-Road Travel Pack ($59) -

Jack Black On-The-Road Travel Pack

For the man who is never in one place, Jack Black On-The-Road Travel Pack contains everything you need for irritation-free, smooth, soft skin, and healthy hair.

The set includes Beard Lube Conditioning Shave (3 fl.oz.), All Over Wash for Face, Hair & Body (3 fl.oz.), Face Buff Energizing Scrub (3 fl.oz.), Industrial Strength Hand Healer (3 fl.oz.), Double Duty Face Moisturizer (3 fl.oz.), Intense Therapy Lip Balm (0.25 fl.oz.).

My brother-in-law travels for work and he and my sister go on a vacation every year, so I think this will come in handy for them. :)

If these products are out of your budget, ask your siblings, your Mom, your cousins, etc. to contribute -- that way, you won't break the bank and everyone is able to give a fantastic gift!
