Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to show your dad how much you appreciate him. Dads can be notoriously challenging to shop for, and you don’t have much time to find that perfect gift, but there are a few great ideas out there that are sure to impress your dad. Read on for more ideas about how you can surprise your dad with one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gifts.

Soaps, scrubs & scents
for Father’s Day

A lot of people assume that their fathers want grilling equipment, power tools and car accessories for Father’s Day, but you can also give your dad the gift of relaxation and self care. No matter who you are, everyone can use a little bit of pampering every once in a while, and you can help your dad unwind with soaps, scrubs and scented products.

Facial hair looks great, but it can be difficult to keep it growing healthy. Whether your dad shaves his facial hair or not, you can give him the gift of a soap made with olive oil and shea butter to provide lasting moisture and a great lather that’s perfect for shaving or trimming facial hair. Soaps that are fortified with olive oil, shea butter and other naturally moisturizing elements can help your dad keep his skin healthy while he cares for his facial hair.

Another great gift option for your dad is an exfoliating sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs contain abrasive components as well as moisturizing ingredients and scents for a complete rejuvenating experience. Sugar scrubs can work through facial hair to leave your dad’s mustache and beard feeling, looking and smelling great, while providing lasting moisturizing effects for facial skin.

At the end of the day, everyone needs to take more time for self care. While your dad might not be in the practice of pampering himself, it would likely do him some good to relax and unwind with some specialty bath products. You can remind your dad about how much you love and appreciate him and encourage him to take care of himself by buying him a gift that he can use and enjoy every day. Regardless of what his specific preferences may be, you can get him something that he really loves.

Mother’s Day is coming up soon on May 12. Do you know how you’re going to honor everything the special women in your life have done for you? Your mom might be the most important person in your life and she’s certainly invested so much of her time and energy into your developing needs!

According to Pew Research Center, in 2018 mother’s bear even more responsibility (read: stress) than decades before. Consider that one-in-four mothers are raising children on their own. And 82% of new mothers are between the ages of 23 and 38—the age when many young women are finishing degrees, establishing a career, or still establishing their own goals.

It’s time to help Mom relax and rejuvenate with the help of a soap store in El Cajon, CA. Soaps and Scents has a wide array of luxurious scents and home-spa favorites that can show how much you appreciate her investment in you! Here are some scents designed to enhance relaxation.

    for enhancing concentration and contains qualities that will put Mom in a
    restful state of mind. It also contains properties ideal for fighting viruses and bacteria, so if the kids have brought home a cold, this might be the best choice for the immune system.
  • Peppermint: If you want to spark your brain’s creative energy, then try peppermint. This scent supports mental activity and is a great energy booster.
  • Rosemary: Here’s one to help Mom improve memory retention as rosemary is perfect for fighting against exhaustion. It provides a pick-me-up without the nervous jitters associated with caffeine.
