Father’s Day 2010: Go for the Glow!

Father’s Day is right around the corner... what should I get him?.... Hmmm.. skip the tie he might wear only once, forget the golf balls he’ll end up losing and 'can' the boxers that will never see the light of day…. Here's something different. How about giving him the gift of good skin care? Every dad is different but I’d bet a bottle of Petron that underneath all the macho passion for golf, barbeques and beer, there’s a part of dad (and maybe it’s even a small part just waiting to be developed) that wants to take care of his skin, hair and nails. Here's a list of a few GlamMan favorites, in a wide range of price points — any one of them would make an awesome and thoughtful Father’s Day gift.
