After-market faucet condom?

Our new and overly-swanky kitchen tap does not have an aerator. This creates a mess of tidal-wave proportions. Is there an after-market fix?

We recently replaced our first tap, in our kitchen. It looks more or less like this tap
(although it is not that one.) The entire neck is one piece. After istallation, we discovered the tap does not have an aerator/screen piece, like most taps
do. The result is that the water jets out and hits the bowl, any dishes or indeed, any dishwasher's hands with such force that is splashes pretty much everywhere.
This cannot be an unsolved problem, right? There must be some sort of after-market condom/nipple/rubber thing I can slip over the end of my faucet to create better flow, right? If such a device exists, I don't know the right search terms, but I am very much hoping it does because replacing this tap is going to be a major and expensive production.
