If you're looking for a thoughtful gift for a special man in your life, you can't go wrong with a grooming item. You can choose either an essential item you know he uses daily, or get creative with a luxury gift, such as an organic beard oil.
Grooming gifts are appropriate for any guy on your list, such as your father, brother, significant other, or close friends. They also work for a wide variety of special events and occasions, including birthdays, holidays, bachelor parties, graduations, and anniversaries. Depending on your gift-giving budget, you can treat the celebrant to just one item, or create a one-of-a-kind present by combining several similar products.
When choosing the best gift, take any skin allergies or sensitivities that the male has into consideration. If you're not sure, stick with organic, chemical-free products to stay on the safe side.
Here are some grooming gift ideas to get you started:
1. Beard Kit
Give the recipient everything he needs to pamper his beard. Choose an all-natural beard oil that contains ingredients such as organic jojoba, hemp, grape seed oil, or shea butter.
Pick an oil that is scented with essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances. Options include peppermint, sandalwood, patchouli, bergamot, and any type of citrus essential oils. You may also be able to create your own customized fragrance blends.
Beard kits may also include conditioning balm, shampoo specifically formulated for facial hair, and high-quality trimmers and razors. Purchase a pre-made kit, or create your own as a personalized touch. You can even have the bag the kit comes in personalized with the man's name, nickname, or monogram.
2. Shower Set
Turn the man's everyday showers into a spa experience with a set filled with luxury hair and body care items. Start with a shampoo and conditioner set that is tailored to his type of hair, such as thick, thin or curly. Choose a set made with natural ingredients and that features a scent that matches the recipient's personality, such as a woodsy- or beach-inspired fragrance.
Other essential shower items include moisturizing cleansing bar soaps and gels, lathering sponges and washcloths, skin scrubs, and deep conditioners. If you design your own shower kit, place the items in a sturdy basket or wood box that the recipient can use to store bathroom items.
If you can't decide on what grooming or shower items to purchase, or you don't know the man's specific tastes, purchase a gift certificate to a local spa or hair and skincare boutique.
