There are more great gifts for men than ever before. With more advances being made in men’s hair, skin, and beard products, there are lots of choices for men!
From a classic straight razor, to something more non-traditional like accelerators (beard vitamins), here are five great gifts you can get the men in your life this holiday season.
There is nothing more classic than the straight razor. The straight razor has barely changed in over 200 years. The classic shave experience for men has always been the straight razor at the barbershop.
That is one of the reasons why the straight razor has been reinvented for the modern age. More men than ever are starting to go back to their roots. Made with stainless steel blades, a straight razor will keep its sharp edge for a long time. It’s a worthy investment because unlike disposable razors, if it should ever become dull, it can be sharpened.
Not only does a straight razor give you better lines and shave, but it’s also easy to keep clean of hair and dirt, unlike disposable or electric razors. A classic straight razor is a fantastic gift for a man of any age.
Gone are the days of men spraying white cream from the aerosol can into a lather and rubbing it onto their face. Shaving or beard creams should have essential oils and moisturizers to condition and care for a man’s skin and beard.
Facial hair is different from head hair, especially on men. It tends to be thicker, and more course – like a wiry texture. Getting the special men on your gift list products that are specially designed for your beard, is a great way to help them start paying special attention to their favorite facial feature!
Taking care of the skin on a man’s face is directly related to properly caring for their facial hair. So, what better gift than the accessories needed for a great shave.
We all know the old tale of women brushing their hair 100 times before going to bed. While that is excessive, there are benefits to your scalp when brushing your hair. This also means, a man brushing his beard has benefits as well.
Brushing stimulates hair follicles, which not only stimulates growth, but trains the beard to grow the way a man wants. It adds volume and keeps the beard free of build-up. It will also help distribute any oils and balms they use in the beard evenly.
The best beard brushes have boar bristles, which tame their hair and keep it free from any tangles. Be sure it is a strong and large enough brush to easily hold and use for grooming.
Keeping with the man-care theme, it’s important to note that they shouldn’t use the same products for their head hair as they do their facial hair. That is why a shampoo specifically formulated to work with beards is another great gift.
We already know that beard hair is more wiry. Shampoo and conditioner are made to strip and rebuild the hair’s natural oils, but that won’t work for a beard! You want the man in your life to use a beard shampoo, which gently cleans without stripping essential oils away from their face.
Not only does this stimulate healthy bead hair growth, but it also means their face remains hydrated and healthy too.
The final gift suggestion for the men in your life is something less traditional. One skincare method men can use for facial hair growth and health are accelerators. In addition to beard shampoos and oils, there are also beard growth vitamins and vitamin spray.
Although they may keep men healthy, most vitamins already being taken have nothing to do with keeping a man’s beard healthy or making it grow faster. By taking a beard vitamin, he is giving his body back the essential nutrients for its growth.
If vitamin pills aren’t your guy’s favorite thing, you can buy a spritz for their beard that is infused with vitamin spray. Not only is it extremely convenient and travel friendly, but the same results of the vitamin can also be achieved with the ease of a spray. They can even use the vitamin spray to refresh midday when the beard is in bulking season, and it will enhance its growth. Not only that, but the mist will leave them smelling terrific!
This holiday season, consider getting the men in your life one, or several of the five mentioned skin and hair care products above. Not only will they love the results, so will you!
