16 Grooming Gifts Your Dad Will Actually Use

It may not seem like it, but Father's Day is sooner than you think. And while monogrammed tumblers and cufflinks are always a guaranteed hit, we're making the case for giving dad the gift of grooming this year. As beauty editors, we might be slightly biased in that regard, but there's something to be said about a fresh pair of clippers or a shiny new skin-care set — especially when you're stuck at home in quarantine.

From facial care by go-to brands like Jack Black and Kiehl's, to the high-tech tools your dad has been eyeing for months, here are 16 grooming gift ideas to shop this year.
