The Ultimate Grooming Gift Guide

This year, I’m bringing you the ultimate grooming gift guide.

the ultimate grooming gift guide

I’ve gathered a bunch of male grooming products, that I believe will be suitable for every man. From luxury skincare, to affordable shaving products, there’ll be something in this guide for everyone. Whether you’re treating yourself, or buying for a loved one, you should hopefully find some inpiration in this post. One thing I’ve tried to do this year is pick out a selection of well-known brands, and pair them with some newer ones. Afterall, who doesn’t like trying new things?

If you’re looking to give the gift of grooming this year, I’ve got your back…

Perricone MD CBx for Men

If I didn’t already have the Perricone MD CBx for Men range, I’d definitely be putting this collection on my list. The products help to calm stressed skin, while hydrating and refreshing your complexion. The products feel really luxurious when you’re using them, and have a nice subtle scent. If you’re looking for a gift that is guranteed to be a success, Perricone MD CBx for Men is the present for you. You can buy them individually or in a convenient travel set, which I love.

You can buy Perricone CBx Travel Essentials Kit for £36

Cornerstone Subscription

A subscription from Cornerstone would make an incredible gift. Every man knows that shopping for shaving products is an inconvenience, and with Cornerstone, that’s an issue of the past. You’d be giving someone a luxury shaving experience, with a razor that can be engraved with their own initials, delivered right to their door. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, the product formulas also feel and smell incredible and the price point is perfect.

You can buy a Cornerstone subcription for around £25. 

Gentlemen’s Tonic

I’ve been a massive fan of Gentlemen’s Tonic for so long. Their formulas are affordable and are designed to give you spa-like skincare from your own home. The cleanser, face scrub and moisturiser all smell incredible and really work wonders on the skin. Use the scrub up to 3 times a week, alternating with the foaming cleanser, then use the moisturiser daily. This is a pre-packed skincare routine that is seriously going to transform the skin. Any man would love this as a gift!

These 3 products from Gentlemen’s Tonic cost a combined £66

Absolute Collagen Stud Box

If you’re buying for someone who is a health fanatic, or generally looks after their skin, the Absolute Collagens Stud Box will make a great gift. I’m sure you’ll have heard that looking good starts from within, and Absolute Collagen stands by that ethos. In the box you get 14 sachets of edible marine collagen, that helps to promote healthy skin, hair and nails. It has a sweet taste, that’s almost fruity. It’s drinkable skincare, and if it’s good enough for Callum Best, it’s good enough to gift.

Moosehead is Australia’s number one male grooming brand. The collection consists of 4 products, Forming Wax, Shaping Dough, Gritty Styling Clay and Grubby Putty. They’ve just launched in a number of stores across England including Superdrug and Asda, and they’re definitely worth checking out. All formulas smell incredible, and will make great stocking fillers. Not only that, but they actually work. They’re developed using salon professional formulations, and trust me when I say, you can tell.

Each product is £4.99 and available in most supermarkets. 

Bandito by masqueBAR

Who else loves a face mask? The UK’s number 1 Korean mask brand have just launched their first men’s collection and it’s really great. The masks are easy to use and since they have a selection available, it makes the perfect stocking filler. I personally love the ‘Pimped Out No More’, which is a mud mask that contains Tea Tree and Vitamin A. Use it after shaving and all irritation will be gone.

Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy

For that savvy skincare lover in your life, the Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy is going to be a winning gift. This daily-use cream will give the affects of a laser or skin peel, without actually having the treatment. The formula is balanced so it gradually resurfaces your skin without any irritation. When it’s applied to the skin, your skin will instantly feel smoother. It’s also got a really nice unisex scent, which makes it suitable for anyone.

men-ü Shower Gel Duo

If you’re looking for a gift that is affordable and effective, you’re onto a winner with anything from men-ü. The Shower Gel Duo contains two ultra concentrated body washes in different scents. The shower gels have a high concentration of ingredients, which means that each 100ml tube is equivalent to other brands 400mls.  You can never go wrong with the gift of hygiene, and you can never go wrong with men-u.

This duo is avialable for £17.90 from men-ü.

Urtekram Skincare for Men

Natural, vegan and organic. Urtekram is the skincare gift for anyone who is conscious about animal cruelty and what they put on their skin. The range has an incredibly masculine juniper scent, and contains superpowered ingredients such as baobab, liquorice and aloe vera. I’ve tried the range, and trust me when I say, it’s one of the best vegan brands I’ve ever used.

Urtekram Skincare for Men is available from Wholefoods for around £4 each.

Anthony Beard Basics Kit

All of the formulas I’ve ever tried from Anthony never dissapoint. If you’re buying for someone who’s rocking a beard, this is the gift for them. The set contains a Conditioning Beard Wash and a Shave Cream. It also features a limited edition beard comb, that doubles as a bottle opener! I don’t have a negative thing to say about Anthony, this gift really won’t dissapoint.
