CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2018

Now it’s December the countdown to Christmas can officially begin! I’m usually one of those people who start there Christmas shopping in October so to be in the first week of December and haven’t bought a single gift yet is new to me. This year has just flown – I can’t actually keep up! Throw into the mix buying a house and preparing to move and you can imagine the last couple of months have been chaos… a good chaos though. I feel like I’m finally getting somewhere.

As you may have noticed during this period my blog has unfortunately been put on the  back burner a bit. I’ve posted here and there but not half as much as I would have liked too. However, I couldn’t not do my yearly gift guide. I love seeing everyone else’s (leave a link in the comments if you have one!) so hopefully someone will find mine useful too. So instead of breaking a tradition, here is my 2018 gift guide – you can find all the links below.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Him

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it’s that time of the year again to start shopping for the perfect gift for that special guy in your life. Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, however in collaboration with L’Occitane After Shave Balm I have put together this quick Valentine’s Gift Guide to show you how easy it can be!

The selection of gifts range from grooming products and Valentine’s-themed clothing to sneakers and technology. All of which should help you find the inspiration to get that perfect gift – even for that guy who seems to own everything and needs nothing.

Men’s grooming gifts are a great way to treat your man to a little pampering this Valentine’s Day. For men who take pride in their appearance, the gift of ‘looking good’ shows that you care and is sure to be a welcome gift this Valentine’s day.

With countless products on the market it’s hard to choose the right product. The L’Occitan range by L’Occitane is the perfect gift for men. Celebrating classic Provence and it’s men, the range infuses the iconic scents of Provence in to a carefully crafted fragrance, with notes of lavender, nutmeg, black pepper and smoked wood.

The After Shave Balm is designed to soothe the skin, prevent irritation and the feeling of tightness. It will not only leave him feeling his best on the big day, but you will also notice the results yourself – no one wants beard burn this Valentine’s day! As the after shave balm is light in texture, it quickly absorbs into the skin leaving the skin feeling moisturised and hydrated. The aromatic spicy L’Occitan scent finishes it off nicely, setting the tone for the special day.

You can see the full guide below and shop the L’Occitane range here.

Yes, it’s that time of year again; and I don’t mean November, I’m talking about Christmas! Although it may seem super early to be thinking about it all just yet, Christmas is definitely in the air. No matter how hard you try, theres no avoiding it, so what better way to embrace the festive season by getting your shopping list in check.

Out of all the people you have to buy for, men are always the hardest people to shop for. What do you get the person who never asks for anything? or has everything? Whether you have a brother, parent, grandfather or boyfriend to buy for, grooming gifts are always well received, you know there going to be used at some point throughout the year.

The male grooming market has seen considerable growth over the past couple of years, with many brands recognising this shift in consumer trends. This year there is a HUGE selection of grooming gifts out there for men – from premium skin care, travel kits & shower gels to exfoliating brushes and beard trimmers, there’s something for everyone.

So to help you get those creative juices flowing and give you some ideas I have put this quick gift guide together of the The Best Grooming Gifts For Men, shop below!
