Instead of having your partner pester you for the perfect present, send her this list; we came up with the ultimate inspiration in this essential grooming gift guide. Take your pick.
This is a local Ontario brand which uses good-for-you ingredients, and their mascot is a badass mascot is a pig named Walton. Our favourite gift set is their Adventurer Premium Grooming kit which includes a cologne, body wash, and hand rescue, along with a mini pomade and comb. Ideal for the frequent camper or traveller.
If you’re looking for a quick stocking stuffer, the Fusion 5 razors from Gillette have had their prices lowered for the holidays, and are up to par with the market’s more expensive and trendy options. Pair it with a citrusy shave cream for the ultimate mini gift.
Every man needs a good trimmer. For the past 80 years, Remington has proved itself as a reliable brand in that department. This year, their updated DuraBlade is the ultimate all-in-one shaving, trimming and styling accessory, and is just $44.95.
Honestly, anything from the Barber&Co family will do facial hair justice. While their individual products are reasonable and range from 22-28, boost your gift game and get their “I’m Faded” set which included their all-natural beeswax and botanic powdered beard oil, balm, and whisker wax.
You can never go wrong with a trusty safety razor, but there’s something sleek and dangerous about a perfect straight razor that no man can resist. This site everything from the perfect beginners set, to ones for more experienced shavers, and even have various luxury materials.
This British company specializes in luxury shaving items, and excel in it. Definitely one of the higher price points on this list, but well worth it. Truefitt & Hill has been recognized as the finest London barber for over two centuries. This set, complete with a badger shaving brush and an award-winning pre-shave oil, screams sophistication.
A classic masculine scent staple is one with woody undertones, and BOSS bottled tonic embodies that with ease. It’s versatile and can be worn on its own and layered, but wears well over the day. It’s a classy option with a warm spiciness, in the face of loud and crass scents that we’re bombarded with every day.
We know: everyone and their father is selling a good beard oil. But beard shampoo and a moustache specific brush sets this kit apart from the rest and has our interest piqued. The Italian brand offers lines for every type of beard – one for course, thick hair, another for sensitive and easily irritated skin, and their traditional menthol and eucalyptus scented line.
This scent is subtle but unmistakably masculine. It’s refreshing and brisk but has classic notes. The cologne carries a whole range of complex fragrances, from mandarin and jasmine to basil and sandalwood. A great everyday scent to really settle into.
Or instead, go for this sexy 3-piece gift set instead of a single cologne, if you’re looking to step it up a notch (or gift several stocking stuffers.) This one includes deodorant, aftershave, and cologne that feature Italian bergamot, sweet tobacco, coriander, and citrus notes.
