All the dudes in my life get grooming products for Christmas.
And maybe some of these things, too.

Drinking beer is exciting, so why not use a cool bottle opener to celebrate whatever occasion you’re about to toast? Who cares if the occasion is Friday at 5.
Guys deserve great green skincare, too, and Brickell Men’s Products delivers. Made with certified organic and natural ingredients, Brickell Men’s Products packs all the green goodness that us ladies have come to expect in our skincare, yet is packaged in a dude-friendly way that looks sleek on the vanity. The Starter Kit contains six travel-sized products for your man to enjoy, including face wash, shave cream, aftershave, moisturizer, soap scrub and hand balm.
Available in black and gray, Industry of All Nations’ Ribbed Alpaca Beanie, available via Accompany, is one you’ll want to borrow from the guy. Warm, durable alpaca fibers insulate while allowing the skin to breathe.
Made from custom cellulose acetate, Warby Parker’s Barkley sunglasses offer a contemporary yet classic look that’s both stylish and subtle. The anti-scratch and anti-reflective coated sunglasses offer 100 percent UV protection and 100 cool points.
For the minimalist guy’s shower, Das Boom Industries’ Everywhere Wash in Yuzu, Shiso & Saffron gets him clean from head hair to toe hair. The bright, fresh burst of yuzu, an East Asian citrus fruit, makes Das Boom Industries’ Everywhere Wash the perfect early morning everything cleanser. Everything Wash is also available in Bayrum, Smoke & Dirt and Bourbon & Leather, but this was by far the favorite of my test subjects (and myself).
If you’re going to give a guy a bunch of great new green grooming products, then it only makes sense to add in a tough dopp kit to boot. Herschel Supply Company’s ‘Chapter’ Travel Kit is made of durable tech canvas that fits both the “form” and “function” requirements.
Made of ethically sourced grade-A cashmere source directly from Mongolia, Everlane’s Cashmere Hoodie is touchably soft and offers an attractive, slim fit that keeps the look polished. This isn’t the bro hoodie you remember from your days on campus. Another one you’ll want to jack from your guy. (Note: A less-expensive but just-as-beautiful cotton cashmere version is also available.)
Mid-cut shoes in taupe? Bet your guy doesn’t have this in his shoe wardrobe. (Do guys have shoe wardrobes?). As with all Toms purchases, your gift of the Toms Taupe Aviator Twill Men’s Paseos Mid also helps a person in need via the company’s One for One promise.
