It’s time for that sentence you’ve heard 1000 times already: The holidays are upon us. Have you started gift shopping yet, or are you procrastinating? Hey, there’s no shame in that. Especially if your holiday gift ideas are running slim.
Whether you’re shopping for the person who “already has everything,” or it’s December 23rd and the clock is ticking, as always, we have your back. Here’s some simple, fun gift ideas for mostly every type of person in your life—from friends, to loved ones, to coworkers.
1. Shaving travel bag
Guys who take their grooming seriously, or even somewhat seriously, own the products. The shavers, the clippers, the extra razors or blades. The pomades. So what do you do if that’s the case?
Well, do they have a travel bag or storage bag?
These bags come in handy more often than not. Especially when traveling. Even if your person doesn’t travel all that often, they could probably use something to put it all in! Plus, you can never go wrong with an understated storage unit.
2. Bluetooth speaker
Do you know someone who always has the best music playing at the kickback? Or has a song suggestion at the ready? This person no doubt has a love for music. The perfect gift for any music head is a Bluetooth speaker.
While a little pricey at first release, now speakers of this variety are so common you can get them for a decent price, around $30 or so. Someone might ask this person to pull out the speaker (it’s a common thing in barbershops—if you know, you know) at any time. Your gift would save the day.
3. Wireless charger
Everyone has that guy in our life that is always on the go. Whether they’re traveling, active in sports, or hang out with everyone, they never seem to be home unless it’s time to sleep. You know who I’m talking about.
What would be extremely useful for this type of person is a wireless charger. They can take it from the barbershop to their next appointment, and never worry about the percentage on their phone.
4. Year-long subscription
When I was young, my dad would give his friends Men’s Health Magazine subscriptions as part of their Christmas present. If you’re thinking of an out-of-the-box gift that’ll always be useful, think about gifting that guy a subscription box or service.
Subscription boxes work exactly like magazines. Every month, it comes straight to their door. For instance, Nest is for fragrances. Birchbox is all about grooming products, and is tailored to the guy in question. If you don’t want to commit to an entire subscription, most subscriptions have gift cards available as well.
5. Service provider gift card
Don’t forget grooming! Give that special guy in your life the gift of a haircut on you. Everybody loves to be treated every once in a while, and this would be a great little perk. Haircuts don’t set you back much, too.
Some barbers and barbershops offer gift cards or exclusive holiday deals, so be sure to ask their barber if that’s an option. Of course, if you know that guy doesn’t have a barber in their life, gift them a service from one of the talented barbers at Booksy. They’ll be in good hands.
6. Beard kit
You know the drill with holiday gift sets and kits. Travel-size products in simplistic, neat packaging. With multiple products for the lucky recipient to try out, there’s more of a chance they’ll find something to enjoy. Maybe even the entire kit!
7. Backup razor
This gift is perfect for friends or work acquaintances. There’s tons of unique (and expensive) razors and shavers out there. Some even go upwards of $200 and $300. Well, not everyone has that kind of money to spend on a fancy, brand new, state-of-the-art razor, right?
Solution? Go for the old faithful choice, and make sure your person doesn’t have to run that errand for their next tool. Give the gift of security and usefulness. For instance, we all know Gillette, right? Check out their line of holiday razors, or any other similar products. To make the gift a little more special, add a gift card from a service pro and a comb, along with beard oil.
Hopefully, the question of how to shop for them has become a little clearer with this article. What do you think you’ll be picking up this year? Let us know, and good luck!
