Christmas Gifts For Him – What To Buy
26 September 2017
From Teens to Grandpa: our Christmas gifts for him have everyone covered.
Most of us find this a difficult task; buying Christmas gifts for him that aren’t socks, quirky gadgets or vouchers. That’s where we come in! We’ve made it easy with our affordable gift ideas for the men in your life. And remember, you can even have your order gift wrapped by the allbeauty Elves, just choose the option at checkout.
Take Good Care of Yourself
For the gym-goer, the man who travels or guys who groom, a skincare set makes a great gift. Elemis The Super Man contains facial wash, moisturiser and body wash, and is great for keeping skin happy (especially for men 30+ ). Or you could plump for a set that comes with a washbag for an added bonus. Gift it alone or team it with the latest book from an Insta fitness guru. You can take a look at our men’s skincare sets here.
It’s a traditional present but such a great one. Here’s your chance to give a statement gift or a mini treat, and one that will last well into New Year. Finding one fragrance to suit most people should be impossible, but not when you have Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Homme! We’ve never met anyone who didn’t love it; warm and woody with fresh lavender notes and a base of sandalwood and cedar, L’Eau D’Issey oozes class, sophistication and quality. If you’ve no clue but you do want a quality scent, this is it. Check the full range too because it’s also available in gift sets. Fragrance doesn’t have to be expensive though, and for a budget option or mini gift you could look for a 30ml travel size or choose from 1000+ lines at allbeauty – check the full range of men’s aftershave here.
The Hairbear Bunch
For guys who love their haircare, there’s a world of products to explore, from styling to gifts and sets. For a gift under £10, label.m Matt Paste is your go-to: this ultra-popular styling paste is great for short styles and creates edgy, textured hair. For everyday haircare this salon size duo from experts TIGI cleanses and helps repair damage. Plus the large salon size means they’re unlikely to run out anytime soon, ideal for those living away such as Uni students. Team it with sci-fi socks and a great book.
Keep It Clean
Bath and body gifts are always a safe bet, since we really hope everyone showers! Christmas is a chance to splash out with a luxury product he wouldn’t normally choose. It’s also a chance to gift something relaxing and ‘me time’. Molton Brown is an excellent starting point and this body wash was created just for men, based around a Thai citrus fruit. Uplifting and relaxing, it’s a super-indulgent change to his usual supermarket brand. Bath and body gift sets can be as fun or as serious as you like. They’re also ideal for the houseproud man (like this handwash duo) or stressed out Dads! Great to gift with with bathrobes, new bedding and home furnishings.
Generation Z (that’s anyone born this century)
Like all of us, younger giftees appreciate luxury. This fragrance set by supercool brand Abercrombie and Fitch is a great choice, with top notes of gin and melon, and base notes of suede, musk and amber. Haircare by TIGI, and grooming by WAHL (we love this trimmer for face, beard and hair) will also go down well. And if they’re struggling with problem skin, a gentle hand in the form of Salcura Antiac, Peter Thomas Roth or Clinique for Men will be appreciated.
The Sports Star / Winter Sun Enthusiast
For the winter sports fan or year-round surfer, there are plenty of gifting options. In addition to that new rash vest or those snazzy goggles, add in some skincare products he can use and enjoy. This SPF50 clear spray from Ultrasun is waterproof and resistant to towel-drying. Or, for the winter sun seeker, an SPF50+ formula will see him through the heat of Asia, Australia and beyond, alongside a coffee table travel guide. For those who like to travel, there are plenty of options at allbeauty, from travel skincare sets to travel scents and even travel haircare. Here are some ideas to start you off.
The Nature Lover
Organic and natural products are hotly in demand but the guys don’t get left out. For the man who appreciates his natural habitat and prefers his products kind to the Earth, Good Day Organics are a great place to start – we love this Sharp Dressed Man travel tin. For those who work long hours or may struggle to sleep, this Neom Organics Scent To Sleep spray is a must. L’Occitane skincare, bath & body, and Paul Mitchell haircare are also brands to check out.
