Aren’t men always the trickiest to shop for? When it comes around to the holiday season especially, I feel a bit hesitant with choosing what to gift. After all, we all want to give a gift that won’t just be set aside to collect dust! I’ve found the best pieces to be unique, one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and then sharing smaller, more affordable but ultra useful gifts he can use day-to-day to be the best.
PLANT APOTHECARY'S START HAPPY BODY WASH
Yes, giving the gift of body wash may sound a little silly - but it makes a great stocking stuffer! And I’m telling you, he’ll appreciate something he can use in his daily routine. This wash has a great uplifting scent from real organic essential oils of geranium and peppermint, which I love, and the quality of this wash shows in the ingredients. It’s even gentle enough for men with sensitive skin.
PLANT APOTHECARY'S SUPER SOAK HEALING BATH
Who said men can’t enjoy a healing bath too?!! This "super soak" formula is actually created for the ultimate healing bath. It's thoughtfully crafted with soothing ingredients like purifying sea salt, organic mustard, and organic eucalyptus essential oils. Perfect for his long day after the office! All-organic, & no harmful chemicals added that you would see in most bath products.
HAWKINS & BRIMBLE'S FACIAL SCRUB
This facial scrub really gives a good foundation for a clean shave. If you're shopping for someone who frequently keeps his facial hair to the minimal, this is the perfect gift. Exfoliating walnut shell gently polishes off dead skin cells, while sweet almond oil helps soften the hair for a clean, close, and non-irritating shave, while keeping the feeling moisturized, rather than dry.
HAWKINS & BRIMBLE'S SYNTHETIC SHAVING BRUSH
This animal-free, soft shaving brush, is the best accessory you can gift him to accompany every clean shave. The expertly crafted brush has dense, but incredibly soft bristles, making it a must with their shaving cream.
HAWKINS & BRIMBLE'S AFTER SHAVE BALM
Definitely gifting at least 3 of these this year... Their shave balm is easily absorbed into the skin and replenishes the moisture normally lost due to shaving. According to Hawkins & Brimble, it's ideal for normal to dry skin. The formula itself is non-greasy, which makes it more appealing, and has ingredients that help to "comfort" the skin in the process of giving a clean shave. And if we couldn't ask for more, this can easily double up as a daily moisturizer, 10/10.
ACURE'S ENERGIZING COFFEE BODY SCRUB
Who doesn't love a strong but natural coffee scented body scrub?! This ultra detoxifying scrub blends the two forces of coffee and charcoal so well to provide a deep clean for combo to oily skin. And as Acure's team says "Who says you can't have coffee in the shower?"
EVEN KEEL'S BRINE ELIXIR
Great for all body & skin types. This masculine soap bar is handcrafted with nourishing black lava and dead sea salt, and a variety of natural clays with an array of incredible benefits - French Rose, Bentonite, Moroccan Red, and Rhassoul. This formula is further blended with skin-hydrating olive & coconut oil.
HURRAW'S CHAI SPICE LIP BALM
Ideal for your mans! A yummy blend of black pepper, cinnamon, clove, anise, and vanilla. Classic but spicy...
P.F. STANDARD'S CANDLE COMPANY'S TEAKWOOD & TOBACCO CANDLE
And lastly, I can't complete this list without a personal favorite, and all-time classic - the gift of a clean, vibe inducing soy candle. This one from P.F. Standard is my favorite, and perfect for the man you're f=gifting to. Each candle is hand-poured into reusable, apothecary-inspired amber jars. Perfectly unisex.
