Male Grooming Products for your Boyfriend (Christmas Gift Guide 2012)

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Eau de Toilette

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Eau de Toilette

If you’re still stuck on what to buy your boyfriend this Christmas, here are some last-minute male grooming gift ideas!

For more suggestions on what to buy your dad, brother, granddad or guy pals, just have a look at Yesterface’s Male Grooming Gift Guide.

Eau de Toilette by Jean Paul Gaultier

Le Male Eau de Toilette is a lovely, clean smelling fragrance by Jean Paul Gaultier which comes in the brand’s trademark sailor-inspired, torso-shaped bottle. Le Male has notes of mint, lavender and vanilla, all of which blend together in a sexy but sophisticated manner. The Eau de Toilette is in no way overpowering, but that’s not to say it’s lacking in strength or character.

Much like its lean, defined and gorgeous blue container, Le Male has a subtle, distinctive and attractive aroma. Amazon is currently selling Le Male for a mere £25.49 per 75ml (RRP: £39.99), so if your boyfriend is looking for a light but refined scent then I strongly recommend getting him this Eau de Toilette!

[3D]Mension Gift Set by Schwarzkopf

Schwarzkopf’s new [3D]MENSION gift set comprises a trio of lovely hair products which can be used in three simple steps. Step 1 is the Hair & Body Shampoo (100ml), step 2 is the Grooming Fluid (100ml), and step 3 is the Strong Hold Gel (75ml).

The shampoo has a nice, refreshing scent and leaves hair feeling soft and smooth, the Grooming Fluid (100ml) contains Provitamin B5 which helps hydrate dry hair (great for the winter months), and the Strong Hold Gel, as you may have already guessed, does exactly what it says on the proverbial tin! The set costs £13.95 and is available from selected Schwarzkopf partner salons. T: 01296 314000.

Shaving Products by Rehab London


For the stubbly fellow in your life, might I suggest Men’s Calm Balm, £14.95 and Men’s Cold Turkey Shaving Gel, £8.95 by Rehab London. The Calm Balm contains rockweed extract and hawaiian water algae, and the shaving gel contains several soothing ingredients such as argan oil, cucumber, aloe vera and witch hazel.

Male Grooming Products for your Friends (Christmas Gift Guide 2012)

Christmas is only a few days away, so here are some last-minute ideas on which male grooming products to buy for your guy mates. Whether he’s sporty, macho or metrosexual, there’s guaranteed to be something in this list that suits him!

For more suggestions on which cosmetics to buy for your dad, boyfriend, brother or granddad this Christmas, check out the rest of Yesterface’s Male Grooming Gift Guide.

What to buy for…

Your metrosexual mate

Fake Tan

Snow may be falling, but that doesn’t mean your metro mate is succumbing to the ‘pale and interesting’ look. If your friend likes to sport sun-kissed skin all year round (and if he’s desperately looking for a ray of sunshine amidst this dark and gloomy weather) then treat him to Fake Bake Unisex Bronzing Gel. He’ll be delighted to find such a sunny surprise under his Christmas tree! Available from fakebake.co.uk for £25.

Straighteners

If your BFF loves styling his hair, why not get him a pair of Toni & Guy’s Slim Definer Straighteners this Christmas? At 15mm, they’re much slimmer than your average straighteners and as as result are easier to use. The straighteners have Ceramic Tourmaline Plates which reach a maxium of 200C. And the best news? They’re only £20!

Heat Protection Spray

If your friend often uses hair appliances, then there’s a good chance he’s on the lookout for good heat protection products. Enter Guard by Neal & Wolf, a heat protection spray suitable for all hair types. The spray is light and doesn’t leave any sticky residue. It also has an opulent, musky scent which I absolutely love.

I used the spray just before straightening my hair and received so many compliments afterwards on how silky my mane looked! It fended off the scorching effects of my GHDs and left my hair feeling seriously smooth. The Guard Heat Protection Spray costs £10.95, which may sound a little steep, but it’s definitely worth it.

Your manly mate

Washbag

If your best guy mate is strong, protective yet gentle too, then the Bulldog Washbag would make a great gift. The washbag contains a moisturiser, face wash and face scrub, all of which contain essential oils and a range of refreshing ingredients including green tea, green algae, and coconut shell. Available to buy at Boots for £15.

Bull Dog washbag

Your sporty mate

Washbag

The name says it all when it comes to this washbag set, so if you have a sporty friend, “The Man is Feeling Competitive” could be right up his street. Or lane. Or swimming aisle. The washbag contains Body Spray and Hair and Body Wash, both of which have a fresh, lemon-like scent. The products are packaged in sleek black bottles and boast a masculine blend of ingredients such as spice, cedar, musk and sandalwood. Available to buy at Boots for £16.
