Best Men's Grooming, Skincare and Wellness Products to Gift This Holiday Season
Matthew Wexler READ TIME: 7 MIN.
Whether he's rough and ready or dapper and debonaire, all the men in our lives could use a bit of pampering. The holidays are the perfect time to bestow some of our favorite men's grooming gifts, skincare and wellness products. Clean-shaven or au natural, men's skin and hair can always use a little extra TLC.
EDGE editors picked and plucked some of our favorites to offer the best picks for the man (or men!) in your life.
The U.K. has given us Daniel Craig, Ben Whishaw, and Regé-Jean Page to swoon over, and now we can amp up our own style with Dapper Man Grooming, the exclusive U.S. distributor of British Black Label haircare and grooming products. Sexy and sophisticated black matte packaging will look great in your bathroom and even better in your hair.
Black Mist ($24.99) thickening pre-style spray adds texture and volume, followed by Shape Paste ($20) for a matte, medium-hold finish or Profile Putty ($20) for those times you want a high-strength hold with satin sheen.
Build your own kit to customize your gift-giving, or if you're going to spoil yourself, take Dapper Man Grooming's hair quiz to find out which products will make for the perfect pompadour.
Even Santa trims his beard, right? Whether your man loves a full bush or is closely cropped, maintenance is usually required. Look no further than MANSCAPED to level up his grooming routine – and if you're nice, maybe he'll share his tools!
Go big with the Performance Package 4.0 ($95.99) – a "best-of" collection that includes The Lawn Mower 4.0 (electric trimmer), Weed Whacker (ear and nose hair trimmer), Crop Preserver (anti-chafing ball deodorant), Crop Reviver (ball spray toner) and Mag Mat (disposable shaving mat), along with bonus gifts including a travel bag and no-chafe boxers.
Trimming tools are also sold individually, along with formulations to personalize your picks, such as Crop Cleanser groin wash ($7.99) and Refined cologne ($39.99). Manscaped is also paying it forward one ball at a time through its partnership with the Testicular Cancer Society to spread the message about early detection and self-screening.

Who says besties can't be business partners, too? Austin-based and minority-owned Pure for Men has quickly established itself as a producer of high-quality wellness products that promote cleanliness, confidence, and sexual empowerment from the inside out.
Pure for Men's newly launched Face Collection, which includes individual products and bundles, makes the perfect gift for your favorite grooming-obsessed guy.
Face Care Kits ($45.99) contain cleanser, toner and facial cream with key ingredients such as aloe, ginseng, and Vitamin C to hydrate and replenish your skin. Each sold separately, you can also build your own collection with add-ons such as eucalyptus and sage-scented facial moisturizer ($17.99) and a refreshing facial mist ($17.99) that is naturally anti-inflammatory. But Pure for Men is more than skin deep – check out their supplements and lifestyle products, too.
Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, Abundant Natural Health has gained a global reputation for its range of wellness products that harness the power of Australian botanicals and cutting-edge technology.
Magnesium, in particular, can be beneficial for aches and pains, so these topical solutions make a terrific gift for an older relative or loved one, or any of us recommitting to the gym in the new year!
Mag I.C. Gel ($15.99) delivers highly concentrated magnesium, along with cucumber juice (high in citric acid) to help in absorption, while the Mag I.C. Spray ($15.99) offers a different formulation to cover large areas like a sore back or legs quickly. The Magnesium Bath Soak ($17.99) is infused with lavender oil for a relaxing and therapeutic soak – the perfect ending to a busy day. All products use 100% natural ingredients, including organically certified and sustainable sourced Magnesium from EcoMag.
When it comes to grooming and skincare products, what's not in them is as important as what is. Lizush creates 100% natural bath and body products – free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic chemicals, and artificial colors. The result is a subtly aromatic collection that relies on essential oils and other enriching ingredients.
Our picks of the season include a 12-piece Shower Steamer Gift Box ($52) to turn your shower into a home spa, 14-piece Bath Bombs Gift Box ($79) for those times when you want a deep soak, and a Bath & Body Men Skincare Gift Box ($73), loaded with massage oil, eucalyptus-scented mist and soap, and other pampering items. Other collections include lavender and citrus gifts for anyone that needs some extra TLC.

Denver-based hank skincare harnesses the power of botanicals to deliver a bespoke collection of grooming products specifically formulated for men's skin. Bhang Face Treatment ($36) utilizes broad-spectrum CBD, Siberian sea buckthorn and wild French lavender, among other ingredients, to create a nourishing oil that only requires a few drops to be effective.
Your lucky guy will also love the moisturizing formulation of Essence ($62), a body and shave oil derived from Palo Santo, New Caledonia sandalwood, organic elderflower, and other botanicals that can be used after shaving or liberally massaged into the body for soothing aromatherapy.
