Father's Day Gifts from Surf-Vival & C.O. Bigelow

Father's Day is coming up on Sunday, June 20, but you still have time to get your Dad something special. Every year for me, it's the usual clothes, leather wallet, some electronic or tool that he was eyeing, but this year I have a few different options I'd like to share.

For your Outdoor-sy Dad who loves to hike, bike, and do everything outside, including surf if you're lucky enough to be near the water, then you'll want him to be safe from the sun!

The Surf-Vival Kit from Smart Girls Who Surf includes everything your dad will need to protect himself from UV rays- SPF 30 Sunblock, SPF 32 Face Stick, Soap for Surfers Glycerin Soap and an SPF 15 Lip Balm. What is so special about Surf-Vival products is that they're chemical-free and paraben-free as well as created in biodegradeable packaging so it's safe to use in the water.

Review of Pure Glycerin Soap- This light green soap is gentle for your skin as well as moisturizing. It's hypo-allergenic and veggie based. I liked that the soft Cucumber scent was not overbearing but rather pleasant. Definitely a great soap to use whether you're on the go, for travel when you're at a public pool, etc. This was tested by surfers too!

Review of Organic SPF32 Face Stick- This is one of my summer's must have! It contains 8% Titanium Dioxide to give you the sun protection you need with agility to carry this around on-the-go so you can reapply as necessary. It's also water-resistant! It comes out out really white but at least you'll know where you applied it.

For your Sophisticated dad who likes to look spiffy and clean, the C.O. Bigelow Barber Collection has 4 different scents that will suit him!

Elixir White- Modern, Bright and Refined. (not shown)
Elixir Blue- Refreshing, Adventurous and Clean.
Elixir Black- Confident, Exotic and Rich.
Elixir Red- Sexy, Warm and Smooth.

In each Elixir Collection, you can choose from the following- a Cologne ($19.50 USD), Hair and Body Wash ($10.00 USD), Deodorizing Body Spray ($10.00 USD), After-Shave Moisture Lotion ($10.00 USD) and Ultra-Light Body Lotion ($10.00 USD).

I used to buy C.O. Bigelow lip balms, available at Bath & Body Works- great variety of products to choose for yourself while you're shopping.. :)

Review of No. 1581 Elixir Black Cologne- This cologne has blends of exotic agar wood and tonka bean with undertones of amber, musk and vanilla, if you can imagine what that smells like. Basically, this cologne screams confidence and sexy!! This is the perfect gift to make him feel like a million bucks! It comes in a sleek black, glass bottle that sprays the cologne. It's 2.5 fl. oz is the perfect size for travel and on the bathroom counter.
