10 Male Grooming Gift Sets

Still wondering what on earth you are going to buy the man/men in your life? You could opt for the laziest of lazy options and just pick up a cheap Lynx gift set, but if you get offended at presents being thrown back at you (with force) and equally brutal looks of contempt this probably isn't a good idea.

To save you all from strife on Christmas Day I've trawled the web to dedicate this post to 10 of the many male grooming gift sets currently available.

L'Occitane - Collection for men (£49.50)A Man's Ritual Gift Set, a collective of ready-to-go necessities specifically tailored for a busy lifestyle. Packed full of L’Occitane favourites, the spicy scent of the original fragrance has a handy selection of refined must-haves tailored to suit all men, no matter whether he’s rough and ready or groomed and gorgeous. This Kit contains:
  • 50ml L’Occitan Eau de Toilette
  • 250ml L’Occitan Shower Gel
  • 100g L’Occitan Soap
  • 150ml L’Occitan Shaving Gel
  • 30ml L’Occitan After Shave Balm
Again L'Occitane are one of my favourite brands and I am yet to find a product I dislike.  This gift set has an actual value of £70 and is an absolute bargain with all of those full sized products.

Scaramouche and Fandango Men's Full Works Pack (£40) - If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I am a huge fan of this brand.

My Top 10 Gift Sets for Men

Selfridges Men's aw15 grooming box59)- I have recieved two of these gift sets to date and have always been really impressed with them.  This set is referred to as 'The perfect gift for him' and the Men's Grooming Box has returned for Christmas 2015 featuring £200 worth of products.  Also included with the nine grooming essentials, which include brands such as Hanz de Fuko, Molton Brown and Clarins is an exclusive Otis Batterbee bag.

Elemis Perfect Man Christmas gift set (£49)- Elemis have put together a box which includes award-winning skincare to luxurious face and body treatments for that man in your life and it contains products such as:
  • Ice Cool Foaming Gel 100ml
  • NEW Pro-Collagen Marine Cream for Men 30ml 
  • Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks 2 sachets
  • Aching Muscle Super Soak 125ml

Put together like this, the actual value is said to be £77 which I think is a bit of a bargain and is most definitely a gift set not to be missed. I'm a big fan of the Elemis muscle soak - it works!

Korres Men's Kit Gift Set (£19)- This is perhaps the set which is the best bargain and would make a great secret santa if you play it safe.  The Korres Men's gift set contains a collection of male grooming essentials, ideal for a short escape, for business or pleasure such as:
  • Absinthe Shave Cream 25ml
  • Marigold After Shave 25ml

Liz Earle Men's Great Skin Skincare Gift Set (£24)- I am well aware that the Hot Cloth Cleanser is something of a cult product, the wife loves it and I have yet to try it, though I am reliably informed there is a male version to be had! This skincare gift set is said to allow your man to cleanse, soften and smooth from top to toe with this hardworking skin duo. Packed with gentle, naturally derived foaming agents and specially selected botanicals, the Face and Body Wash leaves skin feeling clean without drying it out, while the daily After Shaving Moisturiser leaves skin smooth, clear and hydrated.

Or there is also the Mr Natty Emergency Flair Kit Shave Set Gift Tube (£25) As well as a wooden-handled razor that fits disposable blades from all major shaving brands, the set includes the brand's scented shave oil and Save Ya Own Skin moisturising butter - both made from natural ingredients to keep you looking and feeling great.

They all look great – a few I’ve tried in the past and loved – particularly the Molton Brown, Menrock and goodies from Scaramouche & Fandango. If you want an in-depth analysis of a gift set when check back next week where I will be giving the low-down on the gift range (it’s a big range) from Bulldog.
