Christmas Gifts For Him – What To Buy

From Teens to Grandpa: our Christmas gifts for him have everyone covered.

Most of us find this a difficult task; buying Christmas gifts for him that aren’t socks, quirky gadgets or vouchers. That’s where we come in! We’ve made it easy with our affordable gift ideas for the men in your life. And remember, you can even have your order gift wrapped by the allbeauty Elves, just choose the option at checkout.

Christmas Gifts For Him

Take Good Care of Yourself

For the gym-goer, the man who travels or guys who groom, a skincare set makes a great gift.  Elemis The Super Man contains facial wash, moisturiser and body wash, and is great for keeping skin happy (especially for men 30+ ). Or you could plump for a set that comes with a washbag for an added bonus. Gift it alone or team it with the latest book from an Insta fitness guru. You can take a look at our men’s skincare sets here.

 

The Fragrance

It’s a traditional present but such a great one. Here’s your chance to give a statement gift or a mini treat, and one that will last well into New Year. Finding one fragrance to suit most people should be impossible, but not when you have Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Homme! We’ve never met anyone who didn’t love it; warm and woody with fresh lavender notes and a base of sandalwood and cedar, L’Eau D’Issey oozes class, sophistication and quality. If you’ve no clue but you do want a quality scent, this is it. Check the full range too because it’s also available in gift sets. Fragrance doesn’t have to be expensive though, and for a budget option or mini gift you could look for a 30ml  travel size or choose from 1000+ lines at allbeauty – check the full range of men’s aftershave here.

The Hairbear Bunch

For guys who love their haircare, there’s a world of products to explore, from styling to gifts and sets. For a gift under £10,  label.m Matt Paste is your go-to: this ultra-popular styling paste is great for short styles and creates edgy, textured hair. For everyday haircare this salon size duo from experts TIGI cleanses and helps repair damage. Plus the large salon size means they’re unlikely to run out anytime soon, ideal for those living away such as Uni students. Team it with sci-fi socks and a great book.

Keep It Clean

Bath and body gifts are always a safe bet, since we really hope everyone showers! Christmas is a chance to splash out with a luxury product he wouldn’t normally choose. It’s also a chance to gift something relaxing and ‘me time’. Molton Brown is an excellent starting point and this body wash was created just for men, based around a Thai citrus fruit. Uplifting and relaxing, it’s a super-indulgent change to his usual supermarket brand. Bath and body gift sets can be as fun or as serious as you like. They’re also ideal for the houseproud man (like this handwash duo) or stressed out Dads! Great to gift with with bathrobes, new bedding and home furnishings.

Generation Z (that’s anyone born this century)

Like all of us, younger giftees appreciate luxury. This fragrance set by supercool brand Abercrombie and Fitch is a great choice, with top notes of gin and melon, and base notes of suede, musk and amber. Haircare by TIGI, and grooming by WAHL (we love this trimmer for face, beard and hair) will also go down well. And if they’re struggling with problem skin, a gentle hand in the form of Salcura Antiac, Peter Thomas Roth or Clinique for Men will be appreciated.

The Sports Star / Winter Sun Enthusiast

For the winter sports fan or year-round surfer, there are plenty of gifting options. In addition to that new rash vest or those snazzy goggles, add in some skincare products he can use and enjoy. This SPF50 clear spray from Ultrasun is waterproof and resistant to towel-drying. Or, for the winter sun seeker, an SPF50+ formula will see him through the heat of Asia, Australia and beyond, alongside a coffee table travel guide. For those who like to travel, there are plenty of options at allbeauty, from travel skincare sets to travel scents and even travel haircare. Here are some ideas to start you off.

The Nature Lover

Organic and natural products are hotly in demand but the guys don’t get left out. For the man who appreciates his natural habitat and prefers his products kind to the Earth, Good Day Organics are a great place to start – we love this Sharp Dressed Man travel tin.  For those who work long hours or may struggle to sleep, this Neom Organics Scent To Sleep spray is a must. L’Occitane skincare, bath & body, and Paul Mitchell haircare are also brands to check out.

Have we inspired you with any ideas? We hope so! And don’t miss the allbeauty Christmas shop with plenty more ideas.

The Top 10 Fragrances For Tweens

Girls love fragrance at any age, but pre-teens will love to open their very own perfume; make them feel special with a scent just for them. We at allbeauty have picked out the 10 best fragrances for Tweens and Pre-Teens.


Justin Bieber Someday

imageThe first fragrance by the pop icon, this is a very creditable fruity scent that wouldn’t be out of place on Mum’s dressing table (confession: your writer owns a bottle!). A stunning bottle with a cute heart-and-key clip which can be taken off and re-used. Actually a shame if she doesn’t like Bieber, this is rather lovely. As fragrances for tweens go, this is one of the best.


Katy Perry Purr Eau de Parfum

imagePeach with a hint of coconut and in a bottle that manages to be fun and glam at the same time, Katy’s first fragrance is adorable with a slightly grown up edge that an older tween will love. The box features Katy dressed in a catsuit in a sultry pose – perfectly tame but may not feel suitable for younger girls, we think age 11+.


One Direction That Moment 

image
That Moment is the second fragrance from 1D (’Our Moment’ was the first, with ‘You and I’ third and the latest release being ‘Between Us’. Yes, 1D have 4 fragrances…) It’s a fresh, apple scent, in a bottle that’s pure glam – not that she’s that bothered, Harry et al know how it smells and that’s the important bit. It also has the boys on the box (of course).


Aquolina Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette

image
Considered a fragrance for any age, Aquolina is a sugary, sweet, very girly scent plus it’s also a bestseller. Very suitable for pre-teens or teenagers, but if the sugary scent doesn’t appeal then try Pink Sugar Simply Pink, a fruitier option.


Shawn Mendes Signature Eau de Parfum

The first fragrance by Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes is designed for both men and women. The fragrance is inspired by his Canadian roots and his passion for music. With top notes of Lemon and pineapple and base notes of White Cedar.


Ariana Grande Cloud Eau de Parfum


Cloud by Ariana Grande is a vibrant and floral fragrance. The box shows the face our your young teens idol and like the scent is vibrant and out there! Any little fashionista will love it, especially the link to Ariane Grande.


Moschino Chic Petals Eau de Toilette

Elegant and fun floral explosion (and in a gorgeous matching box), Chic Petals is for the cool, edgy, fashionista tween. Moschino Chic Petals is a fragrance for an ‘interesting’ teen, who moves in the flowery and luxuriant fields of her imagination with style and authority.


So there you have our top 10 fragrances for Tweens. If you have any suggestions of your own we’d love to hear them – just comment down below.
