It’s hard getting Christmas gifts for the men in our lives. After all, they always say they don’t really need anything.

Grooming products are actually great gifts if you’re shopping for a man. If he’s always been particular about his grooming routine, he’ll appreciate something that he can add to his stash and if he hasn’t started a proper routine, he’ll appreciate that you’re introducing one to him.

Here are a list of grooming gifts for men that you can consider this Christmas.

1. Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Eye Cream

Our eyes are usually the first area where signs of ageing appear and even the laziest men would notice this. This is why a great eye cream is an ideal gift for a man, even if he doesn’t usually take proper care of his skin.

We recommend this one from Shiseido Men. With its Rice Bran Technology, this eye cream will improve signs of ageing like wrinkles, lack of firmness, sagging, dullness, skin roughness, and dark circles.

It doesn’t feel sticky on the skin since it’s designed to be absorbed quickly. With its dewy texture, it will leave the skin feeling comfortable while giving it 48 hours of hydration.

Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Eye Cream retails for S$65, available at Shiseido counters and Sephora.

Look into a man’s bathroom cabinet and you’ll likely find some sort of hairstyling product – a staple for them.
