Am I the only one that thinks shopping for men is possibly one of the trickiest experiences of life?! Christmas is a nightmare for me as I have a few men in my family and finding a good gift for them can be pretty hard… especially when they won’t let you in on what they would like! In case you missed my recent Christmas Gift Guide, I gave you some affordable beauty options for the women in your life, but this time I wanted to do one for the men! I am going to try and keep these options not only affordable, but pretty universal that would come in handy for pretty much any man. Of course, this is a beauty blog so I will be sharing a few ‘beauty’ options e.g. fragrances and skin care sets, but I will also chuck in a couple of other random options for you! Like my previous gift guide, I am only going to be sharing things that come in under £20 as we aren’t all made of money and I completely respect that!
The first gift set I have comes in at £20 so it is up there in my price range, but this would be a great gift for any gym lovers out there! The Jack Wills Gym Gift Set can be found at Boots and comes with a gym bag, water bottle, ear phones, hair and body wash and a body spray. I think this is a really cute gift especially as so many people are obsessed with the gym and Jack Wills is a really nice brand too.
The Dove Men+Care Gift with Mobile Charger is a nice twist on your classic dove set. I think a lot of people will reach for a lynx set over Christmas as they are really affordable, and I don’t know about you, but my partner gets easily between 3-5 lynx sets around Christmas time. This dove set makes a nice change, you still get your men care products such as the face wash, deodorant and a shampoo/conditioner, but in this set you also get a portable phone charger. My partners phone is always dead, so little gifts like this may be nice for the men in your life. This set comes in at £15 in Superdrug but as it is Black Friday it has been reduced to just £10!
This next gift set is being dedicated to my dear father. My dad has an obsession with socks, which makes it a bit easier around Christmas time to get him a gift he may actually enjoy! Again, as it is Black Friday/Cyber Monday we have this Ted Baker Sock Trio Gift Set for just £16 and I know that my dad would love something like this so maybe yours would too?
I’m sure we all know someone that has a beard, as that seems to be trend at the moment and I have found this Brisk Grooming Set which can be found at Boots for £12.50. This set comes with a pair of scissors, a beard shampoo, beard oil, beard balm and a shave gel. I think this is a really nice set and something that isn’t just going to be put in the back of a cupboard because it’s not all that useful. I for one know someone who would get great use out of this gift set!
Boots have a great range of aftershaves, and scent is down to personal preference. You can find quite a few aftershaves that come under the £20 price mark, and the Police To Be King Aftershave comes in at just £13.99 and the bottle is just gorgeous. Of course, I can’t recommend the scent to everyone, but this is a nice choice for a fraction of the price of the higher end scents.
My final gift recommendation is the Emergency Coffee Break Kit which can be found on notonthehighstreet.com and comes in at £15.75. I’m sure i’m not the only one who has family members who love their coffee and this is a nice little gift for the coffee drinkers in your life.
