4. Safety Razor from The Social Space
Are you looking to up your father’s grooming regime? We’ve got a zero-waste gift recommendation for you. The Social Space’s Safety Razor provides the closest shave by gliding gently and smoothly over the skin and cutting the hair follicles at the skin level. Ingrown hairs, begone!

5. Weber Grill Academy
Sign dad up for a grilling course so that he can turn tricks (and cook, obvi) at the next family barbecue event. Weber Grill Academy runs introductory programmes that teach participants the art of grilling. If that’s too basic for him, he can level up by attending the special lessons, which dive deeper into prepping for special cuisines and meat cuts.

This hands-free support allows you to switch up to ambient sounds and enjoy conversations without removing your earbuds. And if your dad is the forgetful type, have no fear. At full charge, these babies have a 40-hour battery life which means it’ll last you a good long time before it needs another dose of juice.
