Fathers seem to fall into one of two divergent categories when it comes to grooming: He’s meticulous about his appearance and stocks his medicine cabinet accordingly or he considers Irish Spring or similar bar soap a does-it-all wonder. For the special day that celebrates all that he’s done for you, consider both kinds of dads could benefit from a box ‘o grooming essentials. Dapper dad will adore trying new brands and, uh, clueless dad may learn a thing or two.

Show him there’s more out there than Aqua Velva and Clubman with this complete regimen of Birchbox favorites from Anthony, Harry’s, Kiehl’s, and more. And the haul comes with a cool Coalatree duffel you might want to steal for yourself (but don’t).
Soho Home Robe And Shaving Set $250
If your dad appreciates a quality shave and hardcore lounging, then this gift of a plush bathrobe from swanky Italian brand Frette and three-piece shaving set from Soho House’s in-house barbershop brand, Neville, will be his lazy Sunday jam.
The Barneys Dapper Daily Box Dapper Daily $225
Some of us have fathers that wear dad jeans un-ironically and beat up Reeboks and there are other’s who have a classier parental role model. Both have their own charms but it’s the latter that will appreciate this swanky collection of posh perfume, shaving paraphernalia, and skincare.
