Cool stuff: mom and dad

The Dyson Airwrap Styler

Say goodbye to budget bending blow-outs. This nifty multi-styling hair tool uses jets of air to allow you to achieve voluminous curls, natural waves and smooth blow-dry finishes – at home. Usually, styling hair means blow drying before styling but the Airwrap styler styles wet to dry. Genius right? We thought so too. Starting at $649. Visit

Sky Blue Geo Suitcase

Jetting away on super fab vacay? Pack up in style with this geometric suitcase. Stand out in a sea of black cases with its gorgeous pastel blue hue (btw, pastels are seriously trending) and keep your valuables safe with its combination lock feature. $80.

 Daily Hydrating Men’s Hair Care Routine.

Switching to a more natural shampoo and conditioner has become a no-brainer for moms, but what about dads? It should be equally as important! Don’t forget organic ingredients such as spearmint oil and aloe help to cleanse and nourish the hair without stripping it. Bonus: this naturally derived shampoo and conditioner duo will help dad’s hair to feel thicker and fuller while repairing damage from daily elements. $52.

Get glowing from the inside out with a drink packed with skin-supporting ingredients such as vitamin C and E and CoQ10 – all designed to reduce the free radical effects of the sun, pollution, stress and more. $82.

Cynfal Hairband

Take your fashion cue from Kate the Duchess of Cambridge who has been fabulously sporting embellished, top knot hairbands for the past six months. Obvi, we don’t have a royal budget, that’s why we love this cheap and chic version in a darker hue, making it versatile and easy on the wallet. $18.

Patagonia Arched Fitz Roy Bear Uprisal Crew Sweatshirt


Not only will dad’s feel “Gucci” in this sweatshirt, but they will also be helping the environment too. This sweatshirt is made from 10.6 plastic bottles, and .6 pounds of cotton scrap which also translates into 143 gallons of water saved compared to the way other cotton sweatshirts are produced. Go, dad! $79.
