Father’s Day Gifts for All of The DILFs Out There!

It is always a good idea to prepare the gifts earlier than last minute, especially for Father’s Day. You know what I mean – it is so difficult to hunt nice gifts for guys, no matter for boyfriend, husband or dad. Father’s Day is coming, not very soon, but trust me, now is the perfect timing to prepare the gift in advance. I’m looking to spice things up for the men this year and introduce you to sassy gift ideas for the Zaddy (and I do mean Zaddy) in their lives.

Tame the Beast is a revolutionary, arousing line of head to toe grooming products. With a focus on raw, energizing properties and all natural botanicals, Tame the Beast covers all the basics of manscaping. Shower, shave, style, beard, skin…they got it covered.

100% vegan, cruelty free and produced in the U.S.A.

DIRECTIONS: When not using, keep soap as dry as possible. Pro tip: cut your natural soap bar (especially the brick) in half and alternate use of each half (this gives your soap more time to dry).

Wear the freshest smelling and cleanest clothes without exposing your skin to nasty chemicals. The Laundry Powder from Truce is perfect for those with sensitive skin, allergies, or conditions prone to dermatological irritation. Avoid the crazy chemicals and toxins found in other laundry products; you deserve a safe, simple laundry detergent formula that works.
Use the Have-it-All Laundry Powder in high-efficiency (HE) models, front-loading, and top-loading laundry washing machines. Expect up to 16 loads from the 1 pound bag, or for an extra value, buy the 3lb laundry powder bag to wash up to 48 loads.

Don’t compromise the cleaning power though – this potent detergent can clean heavily soiled clothes and it works in areas prone to hard water. The natural oxygen bleach works to keep whites bright and colors bold without fading. The Laundry Powder is gentle enough for washing organic fibers and it is biodegradable and earth-friendly.
Very Important – Hand Cleansers!

For added bonus, you can purchase the pack of four to ensure that everyone in your family is keeping their hands clean. You wouldn’t want to risk running out of your Truce Natural and Organic Hand Sanitizer because there is nothing worse than using those chemical-ridden hand sanitizers that kill off the good germs along with the bad ones. Choose the safe and simple option to keep your families’ hands clean.

Last But Not The Least
