Truth be told, most of my gift-giving is designated to women, making Father’s Day a holiday I generally avoid giving advice for. Plus, I don’t want to perpetuate the assumption that every man out there wants a ticket to a baseball game or a tool kit. And though many would say grooming gifts are also a lazy or even predictable choice for Father’s Day, a significant amount of men in my life claim otherwise. (Yes, you can exhale last-minute shopper.)

Sure, most would categorize razors, cologne, and bar soap an actual necessity that shouldn’t be viewed as something “special,” but that doesn’t mean they can’t be meaningful gifts. Honestly, if someone went out of there way to get me a year-long supply of say, chapstick, or even toilet paper, I’d be doing a happy dance knowing I could avoid those random Duane Reade stops for a long while. I guess what I’m trying to say is that if you’re not great at super creative gifts or simply don’t have the time, a set of colognes or skincare starter kit is nothing to feel really bad about. Let’s not make gift-shaming a thing.

With that being said, here are 12 beauty editor-approved sets I am confident will get used instead of sitting on a shelf unopened.
