Men’s Grooming Kit Gifts
British men are reinventing themselves – it’s true! According to British GQ magazine, 82 per cent of men now use skincare products, and more than a third of them spend at least 15-minutes a day on their grooming routine, so what better Christmas gift for the modern man than a gorgeous grooming kit. Packed with essentials for their beards, brows, and skin, they are the perfect alternative to Old Spice, and if you like your man suave, sophisticated, and smooth, we’ve got the top picks for you.
Beards continue to dominate in 2020 and, whether the man in your life has a flourishing full beard or a neat goatee, the Beard Trio Box by Le Baigneur could be the perfect Christmas gift for him. It includes a relaxing handmade soap, a bottle of plum and hazelnut shaving oil, and a boar hair beard brush. Presented in a gift box; it is wrapped and ready to give. Oh yes, and did we mention, it smells divine!
If he’s not a fan of facial hair, treat him to the Voyage Gift Box by Le Baigneur. It includes three mini facial oils, three mini handmade soaps, and a Le Baigneur cotton towel embroidered with the brand’s iconic logo. A fabulous Christmas gift for men who travel, either for business or leisure, this luxurious gift box has everything he needs to stay fresh and fragrant as he goes about his daily missions. It sure beats a pair of socks!
Men’s Watch Gifts
You cannot go wrong with a watch when shopping for a Christmas gift for men. Timeless timepieces are practical, fashionable, and perfect for gents of all ages. And while we cannot guarantee that it will improve his timekeeping, there’s a good chance that it will keep him on time for an important event, business meeting, or perhaps most importantly of all, date night! Luxury watches for men come in many shapes and forms, and so it is easy to find the perfect one for your perfect one. Check out a few of our faves below.
With its minimalist design, The Gun Gunmetal & Walnut Wood Watch by VEJRHØJ promises to be a best-seller this festive season. A distinctive timepiece for men of all ages, it fuses natural walnut wood with brushed gunmetal, mineral crystal glass, and a Japanese quartz movement to create the ultimate timekeeper for work and play. The beauty of this men’s watch is that the strap is interchangeable, so he can switch from a mesh strap to a leather strap to suit his mood. It comes in a deluxe wooden gift box, making it a stunning Christmas gift for him.
If suave and sophisticated best describes your man, the Kupolo Stalo Watch by CONTEMPUS could be the ultimate Christmas gift for him. A monochrome masterpiece, this designer timepiece takes its inspiration from the modern architecture of the 21st century. It has a concave lifted dial with Japanese movement, a crystal glass face, and a steel buckle fastener for easy dressing. There’s a luxurious suede strap for all-day comfort, and an impressive 42mm dial to complement every wrist size. It’s just so cool - we know he’s going to love it.
Wallets & Leather Accessories for Men
When shopping for Christmas gifts for dad, grandad, high-flying executives, and globe-trotting adventurers, consider a leather wallet or cardholder. A mini pocket organiser, made from luxurious materials, it is essential for work and play, and best of all, he can use every single day. If the man in your life is not keen on carrying a wallet, introduce him to an ultra-slim card sleeve. It will change the way he carts his debit and credit cards for good, and you’ll be long-remembered for your truly thoughtful gift.
When it comes to smart storage, the Zip Wallet by Bellroy has it all. Surprisingly spacious, despite its compact dimensions, this zip-around wallet can accommodate up to 11 credits cards, full-length notes, and a handful of coins in an integrated coin pouch. Made from luxurious, environmentally-certified leather, the Bellroy Zip Wallet is kind on the pocket, quite literally, and gentle on the planet. The perfect Christmas gift for men.
Described by its makers as “a minimalist sleeve for your cash and cards” the Micro Sleeve by Bellroy combines convenience with style and social responsibility. Expertly handcrafted in environmentally-certified leather, this premium wallet is perfectly sized to accommodate up to six credit cards and a selection of folded notes. With its slim profile and fuss-free design, it slots conveniently into any pocket, making it a great festive gift for business professionals, sports enthusiasts, and chilled-out dads.
Mindful & Relaxation Gifts For Men
Men get stressed too, and while they may not show it as much as women, they benefit from mindful and relaxation gifts just as much. If you are shopping for the perfect Christmas gift for a stressed-out boyfriend, brother, husband, or son, why not treat him to a scented candle that will help him relax and find his happy place after a hard day at work. Alternatively, introduce him to the world of man-friendly soaps that will soothe the soul as he scrubs away the stresses of the day. Here are just a few of our personal favourites – just for men.
If you are looking for a truly unique Christmas gift for men, the Nordic Cedar Soy Wax Candle by Aery Living could be it. It’s not traditional, we know, but this scented candle, made from pure soy wax, will take him on a journey while soothing his body, mind, and soul. How does it smell? With its master blend of cedar, bergamot, pepper, and cinnamon and notes of orange and nutmeg, it smells like Christmas. Trust us; he’ll love it.
Soap-on-a-rope we hear you cry! Seriously? These dangling delights have come a long way in recent years and, if the man in your life cares about the environment (and what he puts on his body), this could be the perfect Christmas gift for him. Made from all-natural, eco-friendly ingredients; this handmade soap includes coconut oil, olive oil, and shea butter, along with fruity mandarin oil and warming ginger oil to stimulate the soul as it nourishes the skin. It’s vegan too!
Fitness & Outdoor Christmas Gifts For Him
If he’s sporty and loves the great outdoors, you’ll find the ideal Christmas gift for him in our Fitness and Outdoors collection. From insulated water bottles for his daily commute to designer Thermo flasks for this next camping, hiking, trekking adventure, we’ve got them all and, when it comes to originality, these stocking fillers and festive treats have buckets full. It’s all about moving away from the norm, and gifting items that he will both use and adore. So without further ado, here are our top picks for sporty gents in 2020.
Designed for life’s great adventures, the Stainless Steel Food Flask by Black+Blum will keep your food hot (or cold) while retaining all the flavour and freshness as you go about your Bear Grills missions. The perfect Christmas gift for men who prefer to eat on the go, this innovative food flask is vacuum insulated, it features a leak-proof design, and it includes a BPA-free spoon so that you can eat directly from the flask. We love its modern retro design, and we’re pretty sure he will too.
The ultimate Christmas present for eco-warriors, the Porter Water Bottle by W&P Design is the perfect replacement for plastic water bottles. Made from lightweight glass, it features a protective silicone outer shell, and it has a twist-cap lid to prevent spillages when you are on the go. This reusable, refillable water bottle comes in a choice of attractive colours to complement every taste, and it is designed to withstand years of daily use. It is more original than a box of Quality Street, and he’ll use it time and again.
Give him something special this year. Give him Christmas gift that he never knew he needed but cannot live without. Who knows, he may even return the favour!
