Most guys have their own grooming rituals, whether simple or elaborate, that include a few products they buy regularly to get the job done and that’s it. It’s not open to debate or discussion. So buying a grooming-related gift for a guy can be a bit of a shot in the dark. How will they accept it? Will you alienate them? Will they be grateful? Will they accept it quietly and then put it in the dresser drawer next to the tie clips from mom? Not if it’s one of the following grooming gifts for men they won’t.
Grooming Gifts For Men

The shaving soap produces a rich, thick lather with little effort, protects sensitive skin from the ravages of the razor and leaves your guy smelling like he just walked out of a barber shop in Little Italy in 1952.

There’s soap and then there’s Turbo Body Bar Scrubbing Soap. This is more than just a way to remove dirt from your skin. This is how you cleanse and rejuvenate in one fell swoop so that when you emerge from the shower you feel not only thoroughly clean but re-energized and ready to face the day. Turbo Body Bar uses fine pumice stone to gently polish the skin while removing the dead skin cells that can give a worn, dry appearance.
While standard soap might make a man feel as though they’ve removed whatever dirt and grime were accruing on their skin it nonetheless makes the skin feel dried out and rough. Not Turbo Body Bar. The natural blue lotus and ginkgo biloba along with shea butter and moisturizing murumuru conspire to leave behind a fresh, revitalized feeling. The lucky guy you gift with Turbo Scrubbing Soap will never look at showering the same way again.

Okay, admittedly if you’re going to give someone deodorant as a gift it has to be someone you know well and who trusts you as much as you trust them to accept it in the spirit in which it is given. Nobody wants to be told they smell and that’s the message your guy is going to get if you present him deodorant. So you’ll need to change the narrative, pronto. It’s not about them smelling bad. It’s about you being concerned that they always feel fresh out of the shower and how the Dove Men+Care Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick can help them achieve that feeling.
You’ve seen them reaching for their typical roll on day after day and decided to give them a break. With Dove Men+Care they’ll get a full 48 hours of protection and won’t experience any of the irritation other deodorants can generate. Dove Men+Care Antiperspirant deodorant is easy on the skin, easy on the nose and with this convenient 6 pack, easy on the wallet as well.

Soap is soap right? Wrong! Most soap will help remove dirt but in the process typically dries out the skin and leaves behind a film that can cause a rash of problems from clogged pores to dermatitis. It’s time to show your man you care about his health by gifting him with soap that won’t bombard him with artificial extenders, odors and texture enhancers. It’s time for Duke Cannon Men’s Bar Soap.
This “Big Ass” Brick of soap (their words) tips the scale at an impressive 10 ounces and will last several times longer than any mainstream mens soap product currently on the market. The source of inspiration for this man-sized brick of soap (don’t you dare call it a “cake”) was the soap issued to US troops during the Korean War. And that’s right in keeping with the Duke Cannon MO of acknowledging our veterans at every turn. In fact, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Men’s Bar Soap goes to support Veteran causes.

This is a great dual-action tool that will let your guy prepare his skin for washing and then clean it like there’s no tomorrow.
