Christmas gift packs are a fab way to totally sort your festive shopping. They’re easy, amazing value, and give the recipient a chance to trial a bunch of new products they’ll hopefully love. This year, we’ve got a lineup that’s chock-full of gifts for guys, and sets are right at the top of our lists.
Help your partner or dad unlock healthier, hardier skin with the MONUSKIN for Men Everyday Essentials Gift Box. Featuring eight (!!) mini versions of some hit MONUSKIN products, your man’s routine is covered from start to finish. There’s even a body rub for tired muscles, and an age-defying eye gel to give your dark circles a push in the right direction.
Your recipient will love to shave, shower and prep their skin with the AHAVA Men’s Energising Minerals Kit. Like all AHAVA products, the minis in this gift set are enriched with Dead Sea minerals, drawing on their moisturising and nourishing benefits. Featuring an exfoliating cleanser, a shaving cream, an aftershave moisturiser and a shower gel, this kit is perfect for world travellers or simply for gifting a taste of the AHAVA range.

Give the gift of natural nourishment with the Dr Botanicals Advanced Natural Hydrating Facial Oil for Men. Packed full of key essential oils, including sweet almond oil and olive oil, the complexion will feel supple and moisturised after using this on a daily basis. It’s also ideal pre-shaving, as it lubricates the skin without a greasy feeling.
Wanna help your guy say goodbye to wrinkles and fine lines? Well, we’re here to tell you it’s possible – and better yet, it can be done while he sleeps! The Wrinkles Schminkles Men Eye Smoothing Kit features silicone sticky pads that offer a huge range of benefits, including holding the skin taut to prevent against creasing, and locking in hydration.
For the deepest clean he’s ever experienced, look no further than the Magnitone London The Clean Sweep Skin Brush for Men. Perfect for your dad, your BFF, brother or of course, your bae, this is the key to buffing away impurities and dead skin cells. Not only will it help alleviate breakouts, but it’s an anti-ageing superstar, as exfoliation means more youthful skin cells.
Mens grooming is an ever-growing world, with more and more guys taking serious care in their appearance. Whether they’re on a quest for the perfect, close shave, or prefer keeping a well-maintained beard, RY have something to suit them this Christmastime.
One of our favourite gifts for guys is a quality razor, so if your man (whether it be dad, your partner or someone else) likes to keep his stubble under control, why not add one to the top of your festive shopping list? The Truefitt & Hill Men’s 5 Blade Wellington Chrome Fusion Razor in Faux Ebony is a hand-crafted razor made in England, and guarantees a smooth shave with all of the precision he’s after. Ergonomically designed and tested for durability, this baby is the top of the top.
Once he’s done shaving, soothe the skin with a good after shave balm. The Thalgo Men After Shave Balm is enriched with refreshing botanicals and is alcohol-free, eliminating any nasty sting. Restorative active ingredients help to fend off redness and irritation in the area, instead leaving him feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Is your dad, partner or brother more of a beard kinda guy? That doesn’t mean he can’t get in on the grooming action! Help him keep his crowning glory in check with some beard maintenance products, such as the Bearded Chap Original Beard Balm. This conditioning and styling formula will give him total control, and also helps to protect beard fibres against environmental stressors.

I'm a journalism grad and avid makeup fan with an unhealthy addiction to buying nude lipsticks, no matter how similar they all may seem. I love chatting to anyone who will listen about my new favourite products, skincare dos and don'ts and practically any other beauty-related topic under the sun. That doesn't mean I'm frivolous with my recommendations, though--you can count on me to give you the nitty gritty on all your wishlist products. In my spare time, you'll find me binge-watching old episodes of Gilmore Girls or at brunch with a large iced coffee in my hand.
