Get your hot cocoa ready. It's going to take you a while to read through this list of the best mens grooming Christmas gift ideas!
It's that time of year again.
For some it's the joyous season full of mistletoe, baking Christmas cookies and caroling. For others, it's the most stressful time of year.
How can you get into the spirit of Christmas when you're stuck in a crowd of manic shoppers? When you can't find the right gift no matter how hard you try?
The answer is simple.
Just read this article and you will find the right gift for the right guy! Seriously! Then get back to enjoying the season.
There is a men's grooming gift idea that is perfect for somebody. Whether he needs some manscaping tools or is in dire need of some mens skincare products. You really can't go wrong.
It's a great time to be a guy.
There are so many products out there geared towards men to help them look and feel their best. Gone are the days where you needed to look scruffy to show that you were a man. Thankfully the days of not caring about your looks are over.
Help that guy in your life that doesn't know how to groom himself get back on track!
There's a tool for every job.
Including manscaping. Luckily, men's chest hair is back in style, but the jury is still out on back hair and also the short and curly ones down below.
Now, you wouldn't take a straight edge razor to your sensitive bits below the waist, correct? As I said, you need the right tool for the job.
Here are a few ideas on how to tame that hair that you just don't want.
The Mangroomer electric back hair remover
Finally, roommates, wives and girlfriends around the world are free from having to shave their man's or friends back.
Just like a back scratcher, the Mangroomer gets to those hard to reach areas. It has 2 different attachments. One for the longer hairs and one to get right down to the skin.
The shorter one has the same type of heads on an electric face shaver. And, it gets the hair right down to the skin for a really smooth shave. You would have to use a regular razor to get it any closer.
baKblades Big Mouth Do-It-Yourself Back Hair Shaver
This back shaver is, again, similar to a back scratcher.
This time, though, it's a razor blade that does the shaving. It's safer than it sounds. The blade is not exposed so it can't slice anywhere if it is misused.
The teeth catch the hair and feed it towards the blade. No shaving cream necessary, but, once you get the hang of it, it can be done in the shower for a nice smooth shaved back.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom Series 7100
Face shave? Check.
Chest hairs trimmed? Check.
Pubes trimmed? Check.
How many tools? Just the Norelco Body Trimmer. It's as easy as it gets to trim and shave wherever you need to. The foil covered razor is the same type as an electric face shaver. Ideal to get your back smooth as a baby's bottom!
If you want to leave a little length on your beard (or other areas), flip it over and you have a trimmer with 5 different length settings.
The best part is that it works wet. Take it in the shower to save time.
Remington PG6025 All-in-1 Lithium Powered Grooming Kit
How to feel brand new. Step 1. Give yourself a haircut with clippers. Step 2. Shave your face with an electric razor. Step 3. Use trimmer for the nose and ear hair. Step 4. Admire your manly self in the mirror.
With the Remington All-in-1 Lithium Powered Grooming Kit, you've got all the attachments you need to get yourself looking sharp in no time.
It's a great little tool that requires little maintenance. It's rechargeable, the attachments are easy to clean and the blades sharpen themselves.
Give the gift of a great shave
Men love rituals and routines. It could be how he likes to mow the lawn or it could be setting up a grill. Whatever it is, there's a certain zen that comes with a routine. Doing something with care.
Shaving used to be that way until life got to be too fast. Shaving became just a way to get the hair off of your face as quickly as possible. Luckily, that is changing and the ritual aspect of shaving is on it's way back.
A beautiful razor, or, a shaving kit is a great way to help bring balance back to a man's life.

Though I love to make a case for going way old-school and using a safety razor, the fact is that most guys still want the ease of using a disposable blade cartridge system razor. And, that's ok.
For those guys there is the Dorco Pace Power razor.
Similar to the Gillette Fusion Power, but better. Dorco put some power into a mans hands. The big difference here is the 6 blade system for an even smoother shave than Gillette.
This is a great gift to get him started since it comes with a pack of 4 cartridges and some shaving cream. What's nice is that when he needs more razors, it won't cost him a fortune. The cartridges are only $9.95 for a pack of 4.
If he wants to get into old-school shaving with a safety razor, there is the Dorco Prime Starter kit. It's an economical entry into the traditional shaving world.
The safety razor is a nice little razor and feels pretty good in the hand.
It won't win any design awards, but it performs well. The double sided razor blades are excellent. At $9.95 for a pack of 25, you're paying $.39 per blade. Each blade has 2 sides, so it's only $.19 per shave. And that's assuming he only gets one shave per side out of the blade. Some guys can use the blade multiple times.
GBS 5 piece Men's Shaving Set
Make sure he has everything he needs to start his journey towards shaving nirvana with this 5 piece shave set.
GBS makes a fine chrome plated kit complete with badger hair brush, glycerin soap, soap dish and of course the safety razor. And, they throw in 10 blades free for good measure.
The razor has a butterfly open system for easy disposal and reloading of the double edge razors. It also features a nice textured handle for wet hands. This is not something you want sliding around on you!
The key to a good shave is the preperation. Using a soap like this one, creates a beautiful, thick lather when used with the badger hair brush. The handy soap dish makes preparing the lather a breeze.
Check out this guide on how to give yourself the perfect wet shave. The wet shave with a safety razor and badger brush is something every guy should master.
ShaveMaxx Double Edge, Heavy Weight Safety Razor
This safety razor by Shavemaxx is a thing of beauty. The shiny chrome accents against the matte black handle is classic.
Forget about how it looks, it's a great razor that is built to last. Safety razors can take a beating. The Shavemaxx has brass fittings for the head and neck to fight corrosion and last a long time.
The handle is made of a non slip acrylic. It has a nice weight to it, which is important. You want the blade and the razor to do the work for you. There shouldn't be much, if any, pressure applied to the razor. It's called a safety razor, but it does need to be handled with care. It does bite if not used properly!
This safety razor makes a wonderful gift for the guy who loves having manly gear.
DOVO Straight Razor with Olivewood Scales Luxury Shave Set
Does the guy you're getting this for have experience with a straight edge razor?
Yes? Then he will love having this straight edge kit with everything he needs.
No? Then how confident is he that he won't cut himself?
I'm not being facetious. Using a straight edge razor requires a little bit of a learning curve. Unfortunately, he only has one face, so any mistakes will potentially leave a scar.
If you think he has what it takes to patiently learn an old-school way to shave with a great tool, then this makes an ideal gift.
DOVO makes exceptional, handcrafted razors.
Made in Germany with hollowed stainless steel, the blade is ready to shave right out of the box. The olive wood handle is beautiful and will develop a nice patina with time and use. This razor is built to last a lifetime or more. Imagine this same razor being handed down a few generations!
The included strop will not only help keep a nice edge on the blade, but he will look pretty cool stropping it!
Also included are the badger hair brush, shaving soap, soap mug, brush and razor stand and leather travel pouch. The only thing missing is a honing stone.
Dovo Shavette Straight Razor
The only down side to owning a traditional cut throat razor is the maintenance. Some guys love the ritual and routine of honing and stropping. And, that is a good thing to learn. But, honestly it's nice to not have to do that to keep a sharp edge.
That's when it's nice to have a Dovo shavette. It holds half of a double edge disposable razor blade, so there is no need to sharpen it. When it is dull, simply throw it away and reload it.
The technique required to shave with the shavette is the same as with a traditional straight edge. It's is made a little easier by the compact size of this razor. It is much easier to handle than a straight edge with a long handle.
This is the same razor that I use at work and on my own face. I recently bought a new one since I finally had to replace my other one after 10 years. The rivet got too loose. It made the razor fly open too quickly making for a dangerous situation. 10 years is a pretty good run, I'd say!
Any gift that can make it that long can't be beat.
Fine Badger Hair Brushes
Vulfix Super Badger Shaving Brush
Just as important as the razor is the badger hair shaving brush. Prepping the face properly with lather and water does as much to ensure a great shave.
Vulfix badger hair brushes are made in England on the Isle of Man. It looks decidedly vintage with it's faux ivory handle and logo. It is crafted to last for years.
The knot, or handle diameter is 20 mm for a comfortable, easy grip that works for most hand sizes.
There are different grades of badger hair used in the brushes. The "best" is Silvertip badger and the "cheapest" is Pure Badger. I use quotes there since people have different preferences so it isn't always the case that these grades indicate quality.
Vulfix uses a grade of Super Badger hair found on the back of the animal. It's fine textured and soft which helps retain water. Ideal for creating a rich lather.
Taking a few minutes to apply the lather. The brush will moisturize the skin and lift the stubble making for a nice, smooth shave.
If the only thing missing from his wet shave arsenal is a good brush, then he'll love this brush from Vulfix.
Kent BLK12 Traditional King-Sized Pure Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush
For the guy who only uses the best of everything, there is the Kent Silvertip Badger hair brush. It is expensive, make no mistake about it.
This is the Rolls Royce of badger hair shaving brushes.
The softness of the tips of the Silvertip badger hair is absolutely luxurious when applying the lather and prepping the face. The craftsmanship is evident by the lack of "shedding" that many lower end shave brushes exhibit.
The knot is 30 mm and is more comfortable for guys with medium to large hands. The width of the hair of the brush is bigger than your average shaving brush. About the size of a baseball, it lathers up extremely well and retains the lather and water. Ideal for when reapplying lather when making multiple passes with the razor.
If your man is hard to shop for because he has everything, he will delight in this unique gift. It will last him a lifetime of superior shaves!
Shaving Cream Sets
Taylor of Old Bond Street Luxury Shaving Gift Set Box
For the classic barbershop experience when shaving at home, it's time for some Taylor of Old Bond street sandalwood shaving cream.
This is a high quality gift set which includes a Pure badger hair brush. Even the box it comes in is elegant!
The scent is reminiscent of that old school barber shop smell. Without being overpowering, though. The lather creams up nicely. A little goes a long way.
If he really likes the classic scent, you might want to add one of these colognes that smell like an old-school barbershop to his gift box.
The Art of Shaving Full Size Shaving Cream Kit
The Art of Shaving have set an industry standard of excellence in the short 20 years they have been around.
They were at the forefront of using high quality, natural ingredients for men's shaving.
The price reflects the quality of the ingredients in this shaving gift set.
The pre-shave oil is made with lemon oil from California for a light, but, pleasant scent. Applying this after wetting the face will soften the beard and skin and provide a layer of lubrication to prevent nicks.
A rich foamy lather from the soap is also great for the skin with the addition of coconut oil. And the fresh lemon scent is invigorating.
Applying the cream with the provided badger hair brush is essential, as I have noted already. Lifting the hair will get a great, smooth shave.
Then, of course, you have to moisturize the skin at the end with the after shave balm.
These 4 steps will improve his shave and leave him feeling like a million bucks.
I have to admit, that I thought the beard trend would be a quick one and die out in a matter of time. I was way off.
Beards are definitely here to stay!
They must be taken care of, though. To make the most of a beard and keep it looking glorious, read this article about how to maintain a beard.
Then read on to find the right product for the right beard for the right guy.
With all the beards around you on a daily basis, a beard care gift will go a long way.
Percy Nobleman Beard Grooming Kit with Beard Oil, Wash, Wax and Comb Set
The first order of business in getting a guy to take care of his beard is to make it easy for him. This gift by Percy Nobleman gives him easy access to beard wash, beard oil mustache wax and a beard/mustache comb.
All of the items in this kit are essential.
Starting with the beard wash. It is a gentle formula which will clean the beard and skin without stripping the oils leaving the hair moist and manageable.
The beard oil keeps the beard from drying out. Itchy beards are over when a quality beard oil is used.
The wax will help shape a longer beard and keep those stray hairs from flying around. It's not just for handlebar mustaches, it serves an important function if somebody has a long beard. Any beard that grows in many different directions.
The comb will keep the beard tidy looking without damaging the ends. Cheap combs or brushes tend to fray the ends of the beard.
All of the beard products are scent-free and won't conflict with colognes or annoy with cloying fragrances.

A great beard shouldn't just look good. It should feel good, too.

They also include a wonderful beard conditioner with aloe vera that helps keep the skin underneath the beard hydrated and healthy. For a soft, supple and discreetly scented beard, the beard oil will take care of that and help prevent dandruff, too.

Maison Lambert Ultimate Beard Care Kit
Sometimes it's not enough to simply give a beard care gift set that will do wonders for his beard. The cool factor should also be considered.
Maison Lambert has it in spades. The packaging of the products looks elegant and the wood cigar box case is just really cool looking.
It isn't just a pretty face though. These products are top-notch. They are fragrance-free and do not test on animals. They do have a slight woody scent from the oils used, however.
Darwins Beard Catcher Grooming Cape
As anybody who has been around a guy that trims his beard knows, the hairs can get all over everything. Weeks after he has trimmed you will still be finding random hairs floating around the bathroom.
Time to get the Darwin Beard Catcher! It's such a simple idea that works really well. It's the same quality cape that is used by barbers and hairdressers everywhere.

Nobody's beard is for them. It's for her! No lady these days can resist a bearded man.
Some beards just have a life of their own. Help his beard show its Gay Pride!
Bath and Body Time!
Sadly, it is in the skin care department that many men fall way short in their cleansing routine.
They use any old soap that dries and damages the skin. Shampoos with harsh chemicals ruin his hair. And skin care is just an afterthought.
His hygiene might be in your hands. When his skin and hair have him feeling like a rockstar, then you will end up looking like a hero.
Let's have a look at some great bath, body and hair product gifts.
Duke Cannon Ammo Can Gift Soap Set
I have to admit that I am a sucker for gimmicky packaging sometimes. The ammo box is authentic and kind of cool.
The military buff or veteran will probably be blown over by the fact that these soaps are packaged that way.
Cool packaging aside, it's the soaps that make this a greta gift. With 5 "big ass bricks" of soap, as Duke Cannon describes them, he won't need to think about what soap to use for quite some time. They will last him months, if not longer.
For some reason, the soaps come with a screwdriver. Are screwdrivers manly? I guess I'll leave that for you to decide.
Ohui for Men Hydra Skin Care Special Gift Set
He might not realize how important it is to take care of his skin yet. But, after using this Ohui hydra skin care set, he will never not take care of his skin again.
The cleansing foam removes dead skin and revitalizes and hydrates. Hydra toner replenishes the skin after washing by shrinking pores, hydrating and providing anti-oxidents. The serum gives his skin an elasticity which prevents skin from looking aged. Then the emulsion keeps the skin hydrated for the entire day.
After trying this regimen for a while, he will be amazed at how good he feels in his new skin.
The Man Can All Natural Bath and Body Gift Set for Men
Ok, here I go again getting sucked in by clever packaging.
It's bad I know.
It's what is inside the can that counts of course, and the skin care products in the Plum Island Soap Co. Man can are the real deal.
I love promoting this company since they are from my neck of the woods on the North Shore of Massachusetts. They take great care in preparing their products as I have witnessed first hand when I visited their operation.
It includes a Fisherman Scrub bar of soap with licorice extract. A hand butter for repairing dry hands. (Especially important in cold climates) Spiced shave gel. Bay Rum oil for either pre-shave or after shave to moisturize his face. Nothing says old-school quite like the scent of Bay Rum!
Add a bath mitt for exfoliating and leaving the skin feeling revitalized.
Then, of course, there is the paint can it comes in. I admit it, I'm a sucker!
Krieger+Sohne Hair Care Gift Set
Krieger+Sohne, Warrior and Sons in German, are quickly gaining a reputation for having some of the best performing men's hair care products on the market.
Unlike many men's hair products out there, they don't just slap a For Men tag on the label. The products are all formulated with men's needs in mind.
The shampoo is made with tea tree oil and helps keep the hair healthy and the skin dandruff free. The conditioner tames the frizziness of freshly shampooed hair and invigorates the skin with peppermint oil. And lastly the hair gel will give him some style without feeling greasy or flaking up.
His hair will never be an afterthought again!
Anthony Fresh 5 Skin Care Set
I'm a little disappointed by the packaging for Anthony Fresh 5 piece men's skin care gift set. It is pretty boring. But, that's ok when you're talking about superior products.
It's kind of like one stop shopping when you give him this skin care set.
He gets a facial scrub with Bali white sand to really exfoliate and cleanse the skin for his morning routine. Aloe vera helps soothe the skin after it's been stripped of the dead cells.
At the end of the day just before bed, the facial cleanser will remove any impurities that have built up throughout the day.
Then the shampoo and body wash will not only clean his hair, but, the eucalyptus oil will leave his scalp feeling tingly and fresh.
The shave cream features hops, which is definitely a first for me. It has a faint scent of beer because of it. But the cream itself has a great lubricant letting the razor glide over the skin. The rosemary and eucalyptus oils aid in keeping the skin free from any bacteria.
At the end of his grooming routine is the facial moisturizer. It not only keeps the skin hydrated, but it tightens it and reduces wrinkles.
I can't recommend these products enough. It's one of those times when you get more than you think you would for the price.
Bee Bald 5 Piece Daily Skin Care Regimen Kit
Us bald guys are usually feeling left out.
There are so many great hair care products hitting the market and we're just here like, "I wish had hair just so I could use some cool products that make me feel good :("
Finally there are some products with the bald guy and his needs in mind. Bee Bald realized that men were using the same products on their head as their face and had to do something about it.
If he shaves his head and end up with bumps or nicks, it's a sign that he is ready for a product designed to shave the head. The scrub exfoliates the skin and leaves it feeling smooth and clean.
The shave cream is designed to go on easy and reduce the damage that some canned creams do when shaving the head.
After the shave, you need to repair the damage to the skin. Your head is no exception. It's time for the Bee Bald Heal lotion.
The final step is to hydrate the face and head with the Smooth lotion. His face and head will feel cool and fresh the rest of the day.
It's a great time to be bald! If your man is starting to bald and is having trouble letting it go, have him read How to Deal with Going Bald.
Baxter of California Deluxe Travel Kit
When his life is spent out of a suitcase, whether it's for work or pleasure, skin care can take a back seat. There's no reason for him to ignore his skin when Baxter of California makes this men's skin care travel set with exceptional products.
A mini badger hair brush and the luxury shave cream can still take care of his wet shave, even if he needs to use a disposable on the road. Face wash rinses away the impurities he likely has from the airplane and buses. Skin is repaired with and soothed by an aftershave balm. A gentle shampoo rinses away the stress of travel.
Even his lips are taken care of by a lip salve. Airplanes are notoriously dry environments and lips can easily get chapped.
And all of his hygiene is done in style with the elegant toiletry case.
Mani Pedi Time. It's not just for ladies!
There's nothing manly about having long unkempt finger and toe nails. It's actually just gross. So, if a guy scoffs at the thought of getting a manicure set, kindly remind him that he needs to take care of himself.
Confidence is manly. Being confident enough to get or give himself a manicure is manly. Showing the world that he takes pride in his appearance is manly.
So, tell him to man up and give himself a mani pedi!
