Men are hard to be for. Everyone knows that and personally, every year I find it more and more difficult to buy the men in my life whether it’s my dad, cousin or brother-in-law something unique and different from another Lynx gift set. Although they would probably be alright with one of them too. Here’s my Christmas Gift Guide For Him 2015 (and I really hope this helps):
Bulldog Skincare are a cruelty free and vegan brand specialising in skincare for men (because they need to look after their skin too). There’s two kits that really stand out to me this year, the first being the Bulldog Skincare Kit(£15) that comes with a wash bag, face scrub, face wash and moisturiser. I think this would be perfect for the men who are constantly travelling everywhere. The next one is the Bulldog Expert Skincare Set(£20) that includes: a face scrub, face wash, moisturiser and an after shave balm. This one comes in a lovely tin that they can then use to store their products in and can be found in Boots.
Eau de Toilette’s aren’t just for women. There are quite a lovely selection for men too including the Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper(£39) that smells divine and The Library of Fragrance’s Dark Chocolate(£15) that smells exactly like the Lynx Dark Chocolate scent however this one is suitable for vegans, isn’t tested on animals and a lot more luxurious.
All men love a good drink whether that is beer, whiskey, vodka or cider. You can never go wrong with an alcoholic beverage of some sorts and you can find them just about anywhere, including your local supermarket. A couple of suggestions I have are: Debenhams Malt Whiskey Tasting Set(£16.50), Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller(£25) or a set of their favourite lagers which can of course be drank on Christmas Day itself.
B. is an exclusive vegan and cruelty free range at Superdrug that is well-known in the cruelty free community. This year they have created a lovely wicker hamper full of skincare treats which would be perfect for your dad or grandad. The B. Mens Hamper(£30) includes: a face wash, shave balm, shave cream, moisturiser, anti-ageing cream, two black wash bags and some lovely Green & Blacks chocolates.
After a long day at work your boyfriend just wants to snuggle up in some comfy clothes and instead of him stealing your favourite pair of pyjama bottoms, you could also treat him to his own. The White Company has Blue Check Flannel PJ Bottoms(£39) that are so warm and snuggly. Match them with a pair of Men’s Felt Slippers(£40) for that perfect evening in front of the sofa.
DVDs or Blu-rays are always a good option too. There’s a lot of films to choose from this year including Jurassic World(£9.99), Fast & Furious 7(£10), Ted 2(£9.99) and The Daniel Craig Collection(£9.99) to name a few.
Last but not least are a set of 10 Chilli Chocolate Penguins(£7) by Hotel Chocolat. I have brought these in previous years for those who aren’t even vegan and they have enjoyed them. Personally I haven’t tried them myself by I can imagine that they are just hot enough to warm you up. Did I mention they were vegan friendly as well?!
I hope that you have found this useful in some way and that I have made buying for the men in your life a little bit less daunting. Let me know what your suggestions below! We can all help each other.
