Dudes (and math) are a mystery, but what to buy them for the holidays ISN’T. Here’s what I recommend at a broad range of price points:
Anthony Logistics for Men Gifted Grooming Set ($60)
This convenient travel pouch is filled with the best-selling Anthony Logistics essentials: Glycolic Facial Cleanser, Face Scrub, Pre Shave Oil, Shave Cream, After Shave Balm, Sea Salt Body Scrub, Glycerin Hand and Body Lotion. The brand is a fave of my friend Anthony from high school, natch.
Perf for the ultimate man! Kind of expensive, but includes everything he needs to clean up his act in full-sized bottles. Gift Collection includes:
Amino Acid Shampoo
Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream
Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash
Original Lip Balm #1
Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
“Ultimate Man” Body Scrub Soap
The price is nice for a holiday gift during this financial apocalypse, n’est-ce pas? The set (pictured, left bottom) contains their hydrating body wash, cleansing body bar, and moisturizing face lotion, all in the delishly masculine cedarwood scent.
Space.NK’s Men Blue Collection ($95)
C.O. Bigelow Barber Classics Gift Set Elixer Blue ($30)
The Elixir Blue fragrance blends aromatic watery marine notes, lavender and rosemary with hints of clean white musk and woody undertones. This set of Elixir Blue favorites includes: Hair & Body Wash, After-Shave Balm, and Cologne. It also comes with a bonus card he can use toward a future C.O. Bigelow Barber purchase.
He’ll be grooming with glee in no time. Which means he’ll stop using your limited-edition-from-two seasons-ago-shower gel you’ve been saving for the ultimate special occasion to wear around the house to watch football.
