A Last Minute Gift Giving Guide FOR the Guys!

I talk a lot about beauty goodies for the ladies and for the kiddies, but what about the menfolk? They like to look and smell good too! And if they don't, well it's our job as ladies to lead them in that direction. Men can be notoriously difficult to shop for (or perhaps it's just the men in my life), but it is possible to get your guys the perfect present! For the ultimate luxury, you can  transform his daily grooming regimen from a chore into a masculine ritual. Selecting the right gift has never been easier; just use his personality as a guide. So here are a few suggestions for some  lovely gifts for the various men in your life, like your father (or father in law or boyfriend's father),  or your brother, and especially for your man (because there is nothing in the world like a good smelling man)...

The Art of Shaving’s The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave® new Mid-Size Kit

For the Father Figure(s) in your life...

The Art of Shaving’s The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave new Mid-Size Kit (MSRP $60) is the ultimate gift to initiate him into the elite society of expert grooming. The kit has everything men need for soft healthy skin, a close comfortable shave, and helps to prevent ingrown hairs, irritation, nicks, and cuts: Pre-Shave Oil (1oz)Shaving Cream (1.5oz)Genuine Badger Hair Shaving Brush, and After-Shave Balm (1oz). The kit is available in the brand’s classic scents: Sandalwood, Unscented, Lavender, and Lemon. (I gifted my VERY hard to shop for father with this, and to say that he is obsessed is an understatement. According to my mom, he makes her feel his face frequently (even in public) in order to show off how nice and smooth it is. He says that if you follow the step by step instructions-even if it's a bit more than you're used to doing in your normal shaving routine-the results are PHENOMENAL!) 

For your fashionable Little/Younger Brother 

Unleash his “dangerously sophisticated” side. Not for the weak-hearted, the new James Bond 007 fragrance (MSRP $40) is the gift for the ultimate Bond man. A unique fusion of traditionally authentic and unmistakably British ingredients shape a classic fragrance with a modern twist – a must have for the 21st century contemporary man. For those that seek adventure and intrigue, much like the iconic spy himself, the fragrance is the perfect gift for that flawlessly combines irresistible sophistication with uncompromising masculinity.

For the Athletic Type...

Release his competitive side by gifting him with HUGO BOSS fragrances’ final addition to the BOSS BOTTLED. trilogy, the  BOSS BOTTLED. SPORT.(MSRP $67). The scent takes inspiration from the strength and durability of carbon fiber. Give your sporty guy this fresh, stimulating and unmistakably masculine scent that will keep him focused and mentally prepared for any challenges that lie ahead in 2013. The best-selling BOSS BOTTLED. fragrance for day and the seductive BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT. round out the trio that embodies the competitive, driven, masculine lifestyle that is the BOSS Man.

For the Take Charge Type...

Stimulate his spicy side with  LACOSTE’s EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Rouge (MSRP $62). It's the scent I want MY man wearing this winter. Fiery and invigorating, the fragrance harvests a triple blend of spices at the heart to create this robust scent. Notes such as spicy mandarin liqueur, Madagascan black pepper, Indian ginger, and Guatemalan cardamom provide a warm welcome from the cold weather. A masculine and zesty fragrance with a spirit that can only be described as energetic,  EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Rouge should DEFINITELY be on your shopping list.

So not to spoil the surprise or anything, but the shave kit is going to my father, the 007 fragrance is going to one of my younger brothers, and the LaCoste fragrance is going to my hubby. The HUGO Boss, well after I talk myself out of keeping it for myself (it smells SO GOOD), I think I'll give it to my dad. I hope this has given you lovelies, some ideas as far as what to get for the men in your lives. Take it from a bonafide product junkie (and her notoriously picky hubby), your men won't be disappointed with any of these selections! Until next time...
