Shopping for gifts in 2020 has already been quite different than in years past: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, high school graduations and Memorial Day Weekend parties, get-togethers and overall behaviors had to significantly shift. And now, as we enter into summer and turn to Father’s Day gifting and celebrations, we’re likewise paying attention to how the coronavirus is morphing our typical June parties and Father’s Day gift giving.

When the coronavirus caused hair salons and barbershops to close their doors, people faced the challenge of keeping up with their grooming and styling needs at home — a reality that's changing as sales around the country at various businesses are showing signs of increasing. Though states are beginning to reopen businesses, some people may opt to continue their grooming at home — to practice social distancing, save some money or time or otherwise. This Father’s Day, you can help the dad in your life achieve a salon-worthy look with grooming tools to fit their needs, for example, allowing them to do so in the comfort of their homes. A Panasonic All-in-One Trimmer may be a good option for the dad who needs to tackle multiple styling jobs — while a subscription to Dollar Shave Club might be better for those wanting to avoid reordering new razors. Whatever their grooming needs, we found trimmers, clippers, skin care kits and more to make getting ready in the morning — or for their next video conference — less of a hassle.
