The holidays are just around the corner—and spoiling the men in your life with grooming gifts is a win-win situation.
Think of it this way. They get to use products that are way more fancy compared to their usual drugstore buys (or perhaps instead of stealing yours). And you get the benefit of being around a great-smelling, well-groomed guy.
From skincare to shaving kits, here are this year’s best grooming gift ideas for men. (And if you need even more ideas, you can browse all our gift guides over here!)
The Best Grooming Gifts for Men
The Nue Co. Forest Lungs
The Nue Co. Forest Lungs is more than just a woody, smoky fragrance that smells like fresh forest air. It’s also an anti-stress treatment formulated to replicate the molecules produced by trees called phytoncides. So a few spritzes can bring about a sense of calm, just like a walk in the forest.
Ursa Major National Parks Soap Set
Ursa Major National Parks Soap Set gives him three bar soaps inspired by America’s most iconic national parks. Each one is formulated using ingredients native to the parks, like pine, juniper, fir and cedar. Bonus: 5% of every purchase supports the National Parks Conservation Association.
Malin+Goetz Saving Face
Malin+Goetz Saving Face is a trio of full-sized facial skincare products from one of the most popular unisex brands. There’s a sulfate-free foaming gel cleanser, a hydrating and detoxifying mask, and a moisturizer for all skin types. (Bonus: You can use these, too!).
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 durable zippered toiletries bag in Highland plaid—perfect for toting around his essentials.
Murdock London Brewer St. Collection
Murdock London Brewer St. Collection upgrades his shaving routine with the exact (full-sized) products used in the brand’s chain of London barbershops. He gets a pre-shave oil, a shaving cream and a post-shave balm, along with a “how to shave” guide with handy tips.
Foreo Luna 3 for Men
Foreo Luna 3 for Men is the men’s version of my all-time favourite cleansing brush. The difference is in the bristles, which are especially designed for deep-cleansing men’s thicker skin. This brush also helps men to 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 (which just might be the brand’s most beloved product), plus a new overnight lip treatment. The lip balms give his lips SPF 25 protection, and are flavoured with mint, lavender and mango-mandarin. For overnight, the buttery treatment repairs and nourishes with lanolin and cocoa butter (and is flavour-free).
Memo Paris Irish Leather Eau de Parfum
Memo Paris Irish Leather Eau de Parfum is a masculine blend of woody, green and leather notes. Yes, it’s a splurge, but all the scents from this line are incredibly unique, subtle and classy (not to mention beautifully packaged!).
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 great shave while minimizing irritation and ingrown hairs. This sturdy, German-made razor uses a single blade, and has a short handle for easy maneuvering.
Kiehl’s Men’s Groom On-The-Go Set
Kiehl’s Men’s Groom On-The-Go Set gives him a four-product face and body routine from one of the most sought-after apothecary brands. It features a gel cleanser, shaving cream, moisturizer and exfoliating body soap.
Mason Pearson Handy Bristle & Nylon Hairbrush
Mason Pearson Handy Bristle & Nylon Hairbrush is an investment, but he’ll have it forever. Designed for all hair types, this brush is made from the highest quality nylon and boar bristles (and with no harm done to animals in the process). It won’t damage the hair or scalp, and helps to stimulate hair follicles while distributing natural oils.
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.
ROYCE New York Suede Lined Grooming Kit
ROYCE New York Suede Lined Grooming Kit is a set of sturdy grooming tools to keep stray hairs, ragged cuticles and long nails at bay. It includes a pair of nail clippers, tweezers, facial hair scissors, a cuticle trimmer, nail file and a knife, all tucked into a leather case.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Men
Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Men is a luxurious face cream made just for him. It’s lightweight but packed with hydrating and calming ingredients, including macadamia oil, squalane and vitamin E. He can use it as an eye cream, too.
Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit
Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit takes beard care to the next level. This three-piece kit features a softening beard shampoo, a boar-bristle brush, and a styling cream to hold hair in place and tame flyaways.
Abbott NYC Exploration Set
Abbott NYC Exploration Set is a collection of eight unisex scents made in NYC from clean and eco-conscious ingredients. All are inspired by different nature destinations, from Cape Cod to the Mojave desert.
Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel for Men
PMD Personal Microderm Man
PMD Personal Microderm Man gives him exfoliation results that are similar to professional microdermabrasion treatments, but can be done from the comfort of home. When used weekly, the device will remove dead skin cells to improve texture, large pores, acne and fine lines and wrinkles.
Baxter of California Best of Baxter of California
Baxter of California Best of Baxter of California is a hair and bodycare trio to keep him neat, clean and fresh. The body bar gently exfoliates as it produces a rich lather, while the aluminum-free deodorant neutralizes bacteria using tea tree oil and witch hazel. Finish with the clay-based pomade to hold his hair in place all day.
Andis ProFoil Lithium Plus Titanium Foil Shaver
Andis ProFoil Lithium Plus Titanium Foil Shaver is the fastest, easiest way to get a smooth 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.
EleVen by Venus Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35
EleVen by Venus Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35 is perfect for guys who hate sunscreen. Unlike most SPFs on the market, it has a serum texture that feels weightless on the skin, and it’s totally invisible on all skin tones. It’s also fragrance-free, with a demi-matte finish. But most importantly, it offers incredible UVA and UVB protection thanks to its 25% concentration of zinc oxide.
Aaron Wallace 3-Step Haircare System
Aaron Wallace 3-Step Haircare System is specifically formulated for Afro hair textures, and has everything he needs to wash and style his hair and beard. The products include a shampoo, conditioner and leave-in hair and beard moisturizer. All are sulfate-free, silicone-free and made with natural ingredients.
