Her Christmas Gift Guide: 8 grooming gifts for the wonderful men in your life
It's that time of year, ladies.
Ah Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year.
It can also be a stressful time of year for many of us, especially when it comes to gifting.
So, we've done the work for you: Her's gift guides will make this festive season's shopping easier.
Below I've focused on the men in our lives, and, as beauty editor, highlighted some wonderful grooming gifts that we know they'll love.
Here are some gorge grooming gifts for the men in your life.
This is one of my all-time favourite brands, and I'm so excited that they're doing a gift set for men this year (and my brother probably will be too!)
It contains a full size Yon-Ka Paris Nutri-Moist Crème, which protects the skin from environmental stress and restores all of its energy. The set also contains a Yon-Ka Paris Barber Shave, which is ultra-effective on tough stubble, while remaining gentle on the most sensitive skin. Plus, the set comes with a very special Leonard's Shaving Brush, and is all wrapped up in a lovely wash bag. They'll love it!
This baby includes three must haves for the man in your life. The giftset contains the Matte Hair Clay, which is ideal for sculpting and adding texture, with a number of other added benefits due to the use of Baicapil. Then there's the Daily Moisturiser with SPF 20. This lightweight formula contains SPF 20 to deliver all-day hydration and protection from sun damaging UVA/UVB rays.
Finally, the set contains the Purifying Peat Face Scrub, which is formulated to combat the effects of a busy lifestyle which can leave skin feeling dull and lifeless. This scrub combines the power of peat, minerals and natural exfoliants to create an ‘espresso for your skin’ effect.
You may or may not be aware of the Huntsman collection by Jo Malone – but let me tell you, it is delicious.
Four scents. Sharply dressed. This is a new collaboration between Jo Malone London and Huntsman Savile Row – the bespoke tailor of the highest tradition. A perfect pairing of scents and style, this is Jo Malone London’s first men’s collaboration, that brings together four refined fragrances, tailored to the modern man. They come in a distinctive bottle, decorated with Huntsman’s gold typography and a matte burgundy cap. This is something special.
This is a brilliant starter kit for the man who isn't into grooming, but wants to be. It contains the four key steps: cleanse, shave, hydrate and exfoliate. You get a full size Facial Fuel Energising Scrub, which preps the skin for a closer, more comfortable shave. Next up is the Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream White Eagle, which conditions the skin for a refreshing, close shave.
Then there's the Facial Fuel Energising Moisture Treatment, which will awaken the appearance of tired-looking skin. Plus you'll get an Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap (he'll love that) which will thoroughly cleanse and exfoliate skin.
From Remington and Manchester United’s co-branded product range, this versatile gadget featuring the legendary Manchester United crest is suitable for either dry or wet shaving. It uses unique 'LiftLogic' multidirectional foils that capture and cut hairs from any direction, whilst adapting to facial contours.
Naturally, this will only work if the man in your life is a United fan – be careful not to offend anyone!
Say hello to everyone's hero product!
Is your man in need some moisture and comfort? Is winter cold irritating and drying out his skin? Well folks, it's Super Moisture Balm to the rescue; a moisturising cream for men that's incredibly comfortable, invisible and non-greasy. It gives extreme hydration and that fresh feeling, and is suitable for all skin types.
He'll adore this!
Who doesn't love a good cologne gift set? This gorge number from Calvin Klein contains ETERNITY for Men 50ml Eau de Parfum Spray and an ETERNITY for Men 100ml Scented Eau de Parfum Body Wash. Fab.
Building upon the timeless, sensual legacy of ETERNITY Calvin Klein, new ETERNITY Calvin Klein Eau de Parfum aftershave fragrance for men is a celebration of the masculine and multifaceted modern man. A powerful and elegant base of suede and vetiver is layered with a heart of warm geranium and cypress. Divine.
This is a beauty icon, that men absolutely go mad for. The Cleansing Gel derives its remarkable cleansing power from magnetised tourmaline and Crème de la Mer's exclusive Deconstructed Waters.
These positively charged waters enable it to thoroughly, yet tranquilly draw dirt, debris, makeup and pollutants out and away from the skin without harsh rubbing. The Cleansing Gel, suitable for normal to oily skin, is oil-free and works to remove excess sebum. They'll be glowing sure.
If the man in your life is guilty of using your skincare products on the sly, then Ella & Jo have just the solution – and right in time for Christmas. Say hello to the brand new Ella & Jo 3in1 Hyaluronic Man Mist! This latest launch from Ella & Jo contains the same powerful formula as their top selling 3in1 Hyaluronic Skin Mist – it’s just a little less pink!
With just a quick spritz required, the 3in1 Hyaluronic Man Mist is ideal for any men looking for low maintenance effective skincare. We reckon this stocking filler would make a welcome change from socks and jocks this Christmas!
