Christmas is a magical time of year. It can also be a very stressful time if you’re one of those people (like me) who; a) leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute, b) never know what to buy, c) don’t have time to shop or d) all of the above!
Well thankfully I am here to help, with my guide to Christmas Gifts for Men! Focused mainly on skin care (of course, what else?) but with a couple of grooming / fragrance ideas thrown in too. So ladies, there is no excuse to go all 3 for 2 on us, because you know you hate it when we do it you!
Foreo Luna for Men
I’ve been a fan of the Foreo Luna for over a year now. I have one in my personal routine and I also use the Professional Set in my treatments. The Foreo Luna for Men is an ultrasonic cleansing brush, pre-shave exfoliation tool and anti-ageing facial massager all-in-one. Made of soft silicone that’s anti-bacterial it channels 8,000 sonic pulsations to deep cleanse the skin and prepare for shaving. It’s the ultimate grooming tool that no man should be without.
Bodhi & Birch Pep Noir Energising Duo
If your man likes peppery, spicy, warm fragrances then he’ll absolutely love this gift set from Bodhi & Birch. Pep Noir is amongst my favourite fragrances from the Bodhi & Birch range. It’s fantastic for boosting energy and it has a real kick to it, which is much needed over the busy festive period.
You can feel the luxury too. He’ll know you didn’t step anywhere neat the 3 for 2 isles with this one!
Find it HERE for £32.
Tom Ford Private Blend Tuscan Leather EDP
I’m not usually one to indulge in fine fragrance. I invest a LOT in skin care where I want to see a result, so spending money on something purely for the smell is lost on me. That said, however, I’ve been lusting after this fragrance ever since a friend of mine wore it out for drinks. A mix of spice, smoke, herbal and floral and absolutely gorgeous!
It doesn’t come cheap though at £142 for 50ml EDP but hey, nothing wrong with a bit of Christmas luxury, particularly when someone else is paying!
Find it at John Lewis or House of Fraser.
Origins Men’s Grooming Treats Christmas Gift Set
Give your man the gift of better skin this Christmas with the gift set from Origins. Comprising of a Checks & Balance face wash, Blade Runner shave cream, Save the Males moisturiser and Fire Fighter post-shave treatment.
All presented in a rather festive wash bag that will last much longer than any festive jumper!
Baxter of California Shave Kit 1-2-3 with Best Badger Brush
If your man is all about the shave, but have sacrificed their clean-shaven skin in the name of raising money for charity during Movember and Decembeard, then what better way to reward them that a new shaving gift set for Christmas.
Baxter of California Shave Kit contains the Super Close Shave Formula and After Shave Balm plus this gorgeous Baxter Best Badger Shave Brush. A rather handsome gift!
L’Occitane men’s L’Occitan Travel Essentials Set
L’Occitane are renowned for their distinct and aromatic fragrances and the men’s fragrance consists of lavender, pepper, nutmeg and burnt wood. A great sized gift if you know someone travelling this Christmas or equally great as a stocking filler or budget gift. Consists of a soap, shaving gel, after-shave balm and shower gel.
Prada Amber Homme Eau de Toilette Gift Set
If the Tom Ford offering is a little out of your price range or you’re just not sure if he’d appreciate the distinctive scent of Tuscan Leather, then you can always go for an old favourite. At least, one of my old favourites!
Prada Amber Homme is an elegant but masculine fragrance with similar notes to the Tom Ford but at a fraction of the price. It even comes with a matching shower gel too!
