Guys in wool caps with new burly 'staches... Apologies to Julie Andrews, but these are a few of my favorite things. And I'm not alone. (I'm guessing it wasn't that jelly-like belly that attracted Mrs. Claus.) With lots of fellas choosing not to shave their charitable Movember moustaches, there seems to be a bit more scruff to admire these days.
So if your man's face is hibernating under new whiskers, here are some gifts that will help keep him well groomed and grizzly:
- Dude No. 1 All-Natural Beard Oil from MCMC Fragrances would make the perfect stocking stuffer for your man... or Jeff Bridges. The fragrance contains Virginia cedarwood, green coriander and pink peppercorn for an outdoorsy scent, while the organic hemp seed and jojoba oils will soothe his winter skin ($65).
- Does your guy insist on keeping that Fu Manchu? Then show him you really care with Kiehl's' Close-Shavers Shaving Formula 31-O, complete with tons of natural oils (like spearmint, eucalyptus, cedarwood bark and rosemary). It can be used as a pre-shave hair softener to aid in his "creative" shaving, and is formulated for men with sensitive skin who are prone to ingrown hairs and razor burn ($18).
- If your man dreams of a bushy beard, but only sprouts a few strands, make his wish come true this season with the Beard Head and Spartan Helmet Combo. He'll be the envy of his buddies (and have the coolest girlfriend ever!) when he dons this knitted masterpiece, which features a fringed military hood with attached "facial hair" ($54.99 at BeardHead.com).
Do you like your men scruffy or clean shaven? Chime in below!
