Gifting beauty products to the men in your life is a win-win situation.
THEY get to use stuff that's way more fancy than their usual drugstore buys. And YOU get to enjoy the benefits of a well-groomed (softer/smoother/better-smelling) guy!
Below, find this year's most giftable grooming products for all the men on your list.
The Best Grooming Gifts for Men
Memo Paris Irish Leather Eau de Parfum
Memo Paris Irish Leather Eau de Parfum is my top men's fragrance pick—a masculine blend of woody, green and leather notes. It's a splurge, but all the scents from this line are incredibly unique, subtle and classy (not to mention beautifully packaged!).
Harry’s Winston Shaving Set
Harry's Winston Shaving Set is from a start-up brand that's being called "the Warby Parker of shaving." As such, this five-piece kit—consisting of shave cream, a razor handle, a razor stand, three blades, and a travel cover—is great value for an affordable price.
Malin+Goetz Saving Face
Malin+Goetz Saving Face is a trio of full-sized facial skincare products. There's a sulfate-free foaming gel cleanser, a hydrating and detoxifying mask, and a moisturizer for all skin types.
Foreo Luna 2 for Men
Foreo Luna 2 for Men is the men's version of my all-time favourite cleansing brush (which I use virtually every day!). The difference is in the bristles, which are designed for deep-cleansing their thicker skin. It also helps them get a closer shave, prevents razor burn and makes razors last longer!
Jack Black The Balm Squad
Jack Black The Balm Squad is a set of three lip balms (perhaps the brand's most beloved product). The flavours include mint, pear and cherry, and all of them hydrate with cocoa butter, lanolin, beeswax and shea butter. They also give SPF 25 protection.
Merkur Classic 2-Piece Double Edge Safety Razor
Merkur Classic 2-Piece Double Edge Safety Razor is recommended by barbers as the best way to get a close shave while minimizing irritation and ingrown hairs. This sturdy, German-made razor uses a single blade, and has a short handle for easy maneuvering.
Anthony Starter Kit
Anthony Starter Kit gives him a head-to-toe routine in five products. They're comprised of a hair and body wash; a glycolic acid facial cleanser; a face scrub; shaving cream; and a lightweight moisturizer.
Barbour Tartan Dopp Kit
Barbour Tartan Dopp Kit is from the century-old British brand famous for its outdoor menswear. The same rustic spirit is in this plaid wool toiletries bag, perfect for toting around his essentials.
Abbott NYC Exploration Set
Abbott NYC Exploration Set is a collection of eight unisex scents made with clean ingredients. All are inspired by different nature destinations, from Cape Cod to the Mojave desert.
Aesop Quench Classic Skin Care Kit
Aesop Quench Classic Skin Care Kit is a nourishing regimen for men with dry skin. It contains a creamy cleanser, an alcohol-free toner, and a rich cream (and you'll probably want to borrow these products for yourself!).
Mason Pearson Popular Mixture Military Hair Brush
Mason Pearson Popular Mixture Military Hair Brush is a brush he'll have forever. Made from the highest quality boar and nylon bristles, it is non-damaging to the hair and scalp, and helps to stimulate hair follicles while distributing natural oils.
The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit
The Art of Shaving Full Size Kit will upgrade any shaving routine. He gets four full-sized products: a pre-shave oil, a shaving cream, a shaving brush and an after-shave balm. It comes in a sandalwood scent as well as unscented.
Jaxon Lane Bro Mask
Jaxon Lane Bro Mask is a set of four hydrogel sheet masks designed especially for men. That means they're infused with a higher concentration of active ingredients (like niacinamide), since men have thicker and oilier skin. They're also bigger in size, and come in two pieces to accommodate beards.
Murdock London Bailey Beard Care Set
Murdock London Bailey Beard Care Set takes beard care to the next level. This four-piece kit features a special sulfate-free beard shampoo; a beard moisturizer (to soften both the hair and the skin underneath); a beard oil (to keep it smooth and shiny); and a beard brush.
Beautycounter Counterman Carry-On
Beautycounter Counterman Carry-On is a set of four travel-ready products for the face, hair and body. It includes a shampoo, body wash, exfoliating cleanser and oil-free moisturizer, all made with non-toxic ingredients.
Baby Foot for Men
Baby Foot for Men is an intensive chemical peel for his feet. You're no doubt familiar with the original version (which I reviewed here). This one produces the same dramatic results on dead skin and calluses, but comes with larger booties that fit up to a men's size 14.
PMD Personal Microderm Man
PMD Personal Microderm Man gives him results similar to professional microdermabrasion treatments, from the comfort of home. Used weekly, the device removes dead skin cells to improve texture, acne and fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Men
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Men is a luxurious face cream just for him (in case he's been stealing yours!). It's packed with hydrating and calming ingredients, including macadamia oil, squalane and vitamin E. He can even use it in place of eye cream.
Czech & Speake Air Safe Leather-Bound Travel Manicure Set
Czech & Speake Air Safe Leather-Bound Travel Manicure Set is the ultimate set of manicure tools for his nails. It's an investment, yes, but it's got four hand-made German instruments coated in Teflon for longevity: scissors, clippers, tweezers and a file. They're all housed in an elegant leather case.
Kiehl’s Men’s Groom-On-The-Go Set
Kiehl's Men's Groom-On-The-Go Set gives him a five-product face and body routine from one of the most sought-after apothecary brands. There's a cleanser, shaving cream, moisturizer, body soap and hand cream.
Pinch Provisions Hemergency Kit
Pinch Provisions Hemergency Kit has everything he needs for unexpected grooming emergencies. Perfect for stashing in the car or at the office, it contains 22 items ranging from cufflinks to dental floss to shaving cream.
Ava Isa Pure Untinted Ultra Matte SPF 45 Sunscreen
Ava Isa Pure Untinted Ultra Matte SPF 45 Sunscreen is a must-have for any man (or woman!) concerned about skin aging. Unlike most SPFs on the market, it offers the highest level of protection from UVA, as I explained in this tutorial. Plus, it's super lightweight and is transparent on all but the darkest skin tones.
Andis ProFoil Lithium Plus Titanium Foil Shaver
Andis ProFoil Lithium Plus Titanium Foil Shaver is the fastest, easiest way to get a close shave. As a foil razor, it's able to get much closer than other types of electric razors, and can be used either wet or dry.
The Inkey List The Pore Wonders Set
The Inkey List The Pore Wonders Set banishes blemishes and blackheads with four targeted products. There's a BHA treatment for cleaning pores, a niacinamide serum for reducing oil production; a squalane oil for hydration; and a retinol for long-term skin smoothing.
Red Light Man Infrared Light Device
Red Light Man Infrared Light Device emits a powerful beam of infrared light, a safe and highly penetrative type of red light with multiple benefits. It can be used all over the body to treat everything from post-workout soreness to hair loss to signs of skin aging. Read more about red light therapy in my tutorial here!
