Grooming: Christmas Gifts For The Guys


With the grooming industry ever growing, there are a huge number of gifts available for the true metrosexual man this Christmas. Here are some of my favourites...

Starting with the Aesop Perseus skincare set (£60.00 Aesop is a brand known for marrying cutting-edge technology with long-established scientific practices to create exceptional skincare products....much like the ones found in the Perseus skincare set. The serviceable tin box contains a trio of some of Aesop's favourite formulations, including the Fabulous Face Cleanser 100ml, Moroccan Neroli Post-Shave Lotion 60ml and Geranium Leaf Body Cleanser 200ml; everyday essentials that any guy would love to be gifted.


Now it wouldn't be a true gift guide without featuring a fragrance; the Balmain Homme 100ml (£62.00 Selfridges) fragrance to be specific. Balmain Homme is a woody, oriental scent that features top notes of bergamot, nutmeg and saffron, middle notes of  leather and violet leaf and bottom notes of cedar, tonka bean and moss. Although it is only an eau de toilette, the intoxicating scent is surprisingly strong and has real lasting power. Trust me when I tell you this gift would never get returned...


Speaking of fragrance, my next recommendation is a candle. It goes by the name of Woodgrain (£50.00 Liberty) and it is a product of IIUVO, the uber-cool label that create unique and beautifully composed candles. The rich, warming scent features top notes of myrrh, cardamom and nutmeg, middle notes of patchouli and cedar and base notes of amber, tonka bean and fir balsam. The one wick candle burns evenly, fills the room with its scent and provides hours of burn time. It has a sweet, woody and spicy aroma that creates a relaxing and opulent atmosphere.

The final gift comes from one of my favourite skincare brands, Kiehl's. It is The Iconic Man skincare set which includes some Kiehl's classics; Facial Fuel Energising Face Wash 75ml, Facial Fuel Energising Scrub 15ml, Facial Fuel Energising Moisture Treatment For Men 75ml and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve 30ml. This set is the ultimate gift for guys who take their skincare seriously, as each of the products work to keep skin looking healthy, fresh and fabulous.
