Finding the perfect gift for the men in your life can prove rather stressful. But think of it as a win-win situation. They get to indulge in products that are way fancier than their usual drugstore lineup, and you get to be around a squeaky clean, nice-smelling, well-groomed guy.
If he’s not already a cleanse-tone-moisturise kind of guy, a straightforward skincare set will lay out a simple but effective routine, taking the guesswork out of his entry into the realm of beauty. Or, perhaps you’re buying for someone who already has a bathroom laden with lotions and creams, in which case an upgrade in the form of a beauty device or fragrance will always be welcomed.
To help you in your festive endeavour, we’ve gathered a range of stocking-friendly grooming products, whittled down to the very best. These grooming goods not only help the men in your life make the most of their morning and night routines, but it’ll also give them that boost of confidence to conquer their day.
From shaving kits to new skincare launches, here are 12 grooming gifts for your favourite men.

Triumph & Disaster Body Wash & Deodorant Set
While you may dislike the idea of him using three-in-one products, this one-stop cleanse and refresh set from Triumph & Disaster is a little more luxurious. The YLF Body Wash is an all-purpose formula that’s great for cleaning, shaving and shampooing. Its nutrient-rich formula uses nourishing argan oil, rosewood, and healing kawakawa leaf extract to gently cleanse whilst hydrating and protecting the skin.
The brand’s Natural Deodorant in Spice works to control excess sweat and smell. Sodium bicarbonate (a.k.a. baking soda) is a powerful antibacterial alkaline that does the heavy lifting by impairing the growth of odour-causing bacteria. There’s also antimicrobial manuka honey, cooling aloe vera, and kawakawa leaf extract to soothe irritation, so your man’s pits will feel comfortable all day.
Triumph & Disaster Body Wash & Deodorant Set retails for S$74 at The Panic Room.
FOREO Luna 2 For Men
Meeting all of his skincare needs, the Foreo Luna 2 For Men utilises an enhanced T-Sonic facial-cleansing and anti-ageing system to restore his complexion to a youthful state. This newly optimised device now features twice the power, providing an even more effective cleanse that preps his skin for the smoothest shave ever.
With up to 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute, the Luna 2 For Men deeply cleanses as it softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. He’ll have firmer, bouncier skin thanks to the lower-frequency pulsation, which can also help other skincare products absorb better into the skin. The 12 customisable intensities give him the option of a customised routine too.
FOREO Luna 2 For Men retails for S$259 on Zalora.

Braun Series 8 8390cc Men’s Shaver
It’s something most men need, but since only a handful are likely to invest in one themselves, a good electric shaver makes for a great gift. If the man in your life has been scraping by with a subpar shaver for too long, this state of the art device from Braun might just be the upgrade he needs.
The shaver’s head pivots 360 degrees for the closest shave, and the cleaning dock ensures it works like new every time. Sonic technology creates micro-vibrations to let the electric razor head glide over his skin while shaving, making it suitable for wet and dry shaves. He’ll get two attachments included: a foil shaver and a precision trimmer, but more can be purchased separately.
Braun Series 8 8390cc Men’s Shaver retails for S$299 at Harvey Norman.
