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.
