Ted Baker Gift Set

When I think of my granddad (or ‘taid’, as we say in Welsh) I imagine him pottering around in the back garden with his various tools. And if he were still here today, I think he would have loved Ted Baker’s “Made to Measure” Gift Set.

Part of Ted Baker’s “The Right Tools” range, the set includes Hair & Body Wash and Bodyspray, both of which contain an outdoorsy blend of bergamot, sandalwood and musk. The set also has a quirky ruler-shaped soap! So cute. Available to buy at Boots for just £10.

Failing all that, you could always get him a bottle of Old Spice and a pot of Vaseline, just for nostalgia’s sake…

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.

What to buy him this Christmas… (Male Grooming Gift Guide 2012)

A few decades ago, the average man might have expected to find some Vaseline hair tonic and a bottle of Old Spice aftershave in his Christmas stocking. But as we all know, man has since evolved – and so have male grooming products!

Gone is the cosmetically-challenged male of yesteryear whose vanity case consisted of a few basic items, and in his place now is the 21st century metrosexual, whose washbag is bursting at its stylish seams with more products than a fella from the 50s could have possibly imagined.

Men nowadays are taking an increasing interest in their appearance, and the market for male cosmetics is now vaster and far more varied than it’s ever been. So, this Christmas, why not treat your favourite chaps to some nice male-grooming products?

Because here at Yesterface I’ve done all the hard work for you by putting together a long list of cosmetic goodies, all of which are bound to fill the modern-day man (and his stocking) with joy!

So, whether you’re looking to find something for your boyfriend or your brother, your old man or an old friend, don’t worry - this list has it covered. All you need to do now is relax, stick on some Christmas tunes, pour yourself a glass of mulled wine and click through the links below. Who knows, with the miracle of online shopping, you may sort all your man-gifts in one sitting!
