From Beard Oil to Body Scrubs, These Are the Best Beauty Gifts for Men

When you find yourself stuck for something to buy for your boyfriend, brother, dad or male friend, beauty gift sets are a good place to start, whether he’s into grooming or not. If he’s not already a cleanse-tone-moisturise kind of guy, a well-stocked skincare set will lay out a simple but effective routine, taking the guesswork out of his entry into this new realm of beauty. Or perhaps you’re buying for someone who already has a bathroom laden with lotions and creams, in which case a new bottle of fragrance will always be welcomed. And with a little bit of coaxing, even the most ardent beauty evader will find joy in a deliciously scented shower gel.
