Need an extra gift for the stocking, looking for a secret Santa gift? Then take a look at my top Christmas gifts for men all under £20 and perfect for all ages.
Bluebeards Revenge Soap Stack, £13.99
Winners of the FHM Grooming Awards 2014 Brand of the Year, Bluebeards Revenge do not disappoint.
This soap range is ‘just for blokes’, amid the midst of the #metoo movement I love this marketing idea.
The gift set contains three soaps. The classic ice soap with a traditional barber shop fragrance, the big blue for a fresh scent and the Cuban gold a more fragrant exotic Caribbean oil-based soap.
These chunky soaps are sturdy and robust, making it near impossible to lose the soap in the shower.
I like to use the big blue for the gym days as it wakes me up and refreshes me after a run.
They are also vegan and vegetarian friendly.
Bic Shave Club Pack, from £5.50 bi -monthly
If your other half steals your razor and you find yourself constantly getting through blades. You may want to think about a subscription service.
Bic Shave Club offer top quality razors and refills for a monthly or bi-monthly minimal cost. For £5.5 you can get the latest 3- blade patented technology blade to your door every other month. That’s £33 a year. Add-ons include shaving gel, face cream and a razor stand.
For the hairier man there is the 5 days a week shaver kit, for a few pennies extra you can get monthly blades direct to your door.
The subscription can be stopped at any time so no need for long term commitment.
The blades as always with Bic are brilliant quality with aloe-vera and vitamin E lubrication strips they last longer and give a smooth finish.
This is a brilliant and practical gift for any man who shaves.
Daytox Volcanic Mud Mask and Face Wash £20.00
I like to keep things simple. I hate to clog up my shelves with numerous products. This volcanic mud from Daytox has become my best friend.
The modern and manly packaging holds a magical volcanic mud that is a 2-in-1 product, acting as a gentle cleansing foam and a purifying mask. Well suited to oily and combination skin I like to use this product as a Face wash daily and a mask once a week.
It is gentle on my skin and on nature, as it is vegan friendly. I have found its just the right balance for my skin, not drying it out but keeping excess oil at bay.
Bluebeards Revenge Face Scrub, £9.99
Another Bluebeard Revenge product that does not disappoint. This face scrub cleans, nourishes and protects. It removes dead skin cells via natural means with finely crushed olive stones.
The scrub also contains a moisturiser laced with ginger extract well known for its antiseptic and astringent properties – to gently exfoliate and massage your face.
I like to use this pre-shave once a week as a nice treat to my routine.
4711 Aftershave, from £6.00
Available on Amazon and at Boots Chemist.
My Christmas favourite and standard essential for the males in my family is the 477 cologne. A cult classic for over 200 years this fresh manly smell of citrus with a cooling tonic is perfect all year round.
I particularly like the watch style bottle, with a round face, as the size is perfect for my work bag.
