Where are all my last-minute shoppers?!?! *fist pumps* Okay so being last-minute isn’t all that great of a trait but it’s my life. Here are some last-minute gift ideas focusing on the skin for the men in your life.
It’s easy to buy and everyone loves fragrance. Here’s my top picks. (tried and true)
Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf- notes of grapefruit and bergamot and top notes of leather, tobacco, and saffron
Tom Ford Noir- blend of bergamot, violet flower, leather, and black pepper
Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani– fresh scent of citrus smoothly blended with a rosemary spiciness and jasmine with a wood base
L’Eau D’Issey by Issey Miyake- notes of woods, musk and amber
(my favorite!) Gucci Guilty For Men- aromas of lavender and lemon with the rich scents of orange blossom and neroli
All of these colognes should be easy to pick up and if you want to save money then I suggest buying them from FragranceNet.com and using their free shipping and 20% coupon. Frangances are so expensive, especially the good ones and FragranceNet offers low prices.
The men around have issues with their skin. Shaving can create razor bumps and discoloration. Here’s some grooming kits the should help your fella.

All of these brands are very reputable in the mens grooming world. For the life of me I don’t know why men think they’re too manly for good skincare. I have the Grooming Lounge The Greatest Shave Ever Kit and it smells really good, I can’t wait to hear what my father thinks. The Black Opal kit is affordable and specially made for black men it can probably be found in select Rite Aids.
