Buying gifts for a man is a tricky business. You dont want to give him another computer game (hes probably on that thing more than is humanly possible anyway), and going down the clothes route can lead you into mothering territory. Instead buy him something he never thought he needed (but actually does). We have compiled a list of grooming products and treatments that (we have on good authority) they would love to receiveMore
A daily face cream is a must, but ‘it should not smell girly or leave any trace of shimmer’ explained one of EBT’s other halves. Malin + Goetz are the leaders when it comes to functional products, with man-friendly fragrances (rum and cannabis, for example). The Vitamin E Face Cream is a moisturising must for any man with super dry skin; he’ll never know how he lived without it. Vitamin E Face Cream, £36
This is for the man who has everything and is already a fully-fledged grooming aficionado. As us ladies know a serum targets skin problems (wrinkles, pigmentation, dullness) and reaches deeper than a moisturiser can. With an energising menthol scent and cooling feel, Sisleyum’s Anti-Age Global Revitalizer, £150 (available from March), gives a matte finish to the skin. It works on two levels – as an anti-ageing serum to protect the skin from daily aggressors like pollution and stress, but as post-shave soother. For a cheaper alternative try Boots No7 Mens Protect & Perfect Intense Serum, £21. If you can get them to use a moisturiser with SPF on top, your work there is done.
