Father’s Day Gift Idea: DIY Pre-Shave Oil


For the man in your life who isn’t currently sporting a trendy beard: DIY pre-shave oil from Caitlin at The Merrythought!

Here’s a super simple gift that you can whip up for Father’s Day that he can use all the time! Pre-shave oil is a great homemade alternative to shaving gel and helps leave your skin silky smooth.

This recipe is delightfully simple, and easy to customize for different skin types.

While you’re at it, you might want to make two batches—apparently this pre-shave oil is equally lovely for shaving legs!
