Guys are the hardest to buy for – honestly really tricky! The only thing I can usually think of is cologne and if you give cologne year after year after year then things start to get a bit boring! So I’ve compiled a mini gift guide on gifts for him to help shed some light on some things you can get that aren’t cologne.
Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream £43.50
It’s hard to get men to use a good face cream sometimes. They won’t use the ‘girly’ ones (even though they should) so this amazing facial cream by Kiehl’s is great because the packaging is totally unisex and not gender specific. You can also feel good buying this product because Kiehl’s UK will be donating £2 for each purchase of this limited edition Ultra Facial Cream (designed in collaboration with Tinie Tempah) to MTV Staying Alive Foundation (which works to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic). This product is a simple, non-fuss yet GOOD moisturiser that will be suitable to any man concerned about skincare (even though he will never admit it)! Therefore it deserves a place in my ‘gifts for him’ feature.
Mancave The Washbag Gift Set – available from Boots £22.99
This is a great gift to give for men’s grooming. The packaging and look and feel cater to men and also comes with a washbag to keep it all together. This would be a perfect gift for a man who likes to go to the gym but needs a washbag with all his essentials. The gift set is reasonably priced as well and contains a Borage Moisturiser with bioactives and UV absorbers, a Willow Face Wash and a Face Scrub with Olive Stone to help exfoliate and reduced blocked pores, blackheads and ingrown hairs. And it’s already wrapped up so ready to pop into a gift bag!
Label Lab Vertical Collar Leaves Graphic was £35.00, now Now £14.00
This shirt is really cool and at the moment House of Fraser is having some fantastic deals across all of their men’s clothing ranges. I mean £35 reduced to £14? That’s really good! And by saving some money on your men’s gifts that just means a treat for you:) This t-shirt is a real crowd pleaser so hard to go wrong – it shows a graphic print that has leaves in a vertical line portraying the subtle darkness of a tree. It’s not too much and it’s not too little. Somewhere in the middle it lies – which is a perfect pleaser!
Sneaker Lab x Lacoste – price varies
Boys like white shoes but sometimes white shoes get dirty which just takes all the fun out of white shoes. Who comes to the rescue? Well it’s none other than Lacoste who have teamed up with Sneaker Lab to come up with a brilliant Sneaker Lab set that will clean white shoes (leather included – hello Converse kicks!) without ruining them. Honestly, it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
What do you get the men in your life for Christmas?
