Ape to Gentleman brought you the Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide last week, and with the special day edging ever closer I thought I’d feature a few last minute products which are sure to impress and are readily available from most shops or online stores. Not only for Father’s Day, they’ll make great gifts for any occasion, failing that – buy them for yourself.


Ralph Lauren Polo Red White & Blue

This is a new (more summery) twist on the classic Polo fragrance by Ralph Lauren. With a more sporty and fresh feel, we have top notes of fresh red apple and cooling cucumber. The mid notes bring clary sage and lavender with base notes of creamy white woods and white musks. An excellent reincarnation of a legend, perfect for Dad this summer.

75ml, £41.00

Japonesque Ergonomic Mini Tweezer Set

Unruly eyebrows. No one likes them, they look unsightly, fortunately they are easily rectified. No, snipping them with scissors is not the way forward, these amazing tweezers from Japonesque are. Provided in a manly black case, they are ergonomically designed aka easy to use and posses almighty gripping power. Dad’s friends at the squash club will never know.


Rituals Travel Light (men’s compact luxury travel kit)

One of our recent discoveries, Rituals. And what a discovery. Amazing luxury, quality ingredients and style, and all very affordable. This 5-product kit is suitable for a 1-5 day trip and contains the main grooming essentials; shower gel, shampoo, deodorant, shave cream and a moisturiser, all housed in a very cool and reusable wash bag.


Braun cruZer 4 Electric Razor

Available for just £69.99, the latest electric razor from Braun is an excellent electric shaver with all the mod-cons such as a shaver dock that charges the shaver. It delivers a mightily close shave without irritation. Makes a good upgrade for any Dad’s still using their archaic beast from way back when.


Cowshed Bullocks Muscle Rub Massage Oil

Cowshed Bullocks Muscle Rub Massage Oil warms on contact with the skin, relieving aching and tired muscles. It is magnificent at alleviating inflammation and relieving muscular aches, pains and sprains. Not that we would ever play the, ‘Dad you’re getting old’ card but seriously this is a great product for men old and young.
