The holidays are finally here, which means running around like a mad woman to find the perfect gift. I love giving gift more than I love getting them. It’s actually my favorite part of the holidays. But there’s one person that’s always hardest to shop for — my boyfriend. Despite being together for eight years, I feel the pressure when trying to find him the perfect gift. That being said, I always pick the best stocking stuffers.
I’m not going to tell you what to buy for the special guy in your life. Holiday gifts are personal and there’s no possible way for me to know what’s right for him. There is one thing that I’ve learned from being in a long term relationship though; there are some things he wants but will never ask for. Those items make the best stocking stuffers.
Boys love beauty products just as much as girls.
It’s true. My boyfriend will never admit it, but he asks me all the time if I have new products. He’s constantly looking for moisturizers and cleansers just like I am. It’s something that actually bonds us. He would never put those items on his holiday wish list though. I know he’s not the only one out there like that, either.
So I scoured the web to find some manly beauty products that he wouldn’t be afraid to open in front of his family. Trust me on this one, the guy in your life will thank you after receiving these all-natural stocking stuffers.
1. Olivina Men
This brand is tailored for me, but it’s really just a great all-natural brand. The products are extremely affordable and smell absolutely wonderful. Add to that the family-owned business background, and you have purposeful stocking stuffers that you can feel good about buying.
My boyfriend loved the smell of this body wash. Unfortunately, the hand cream didn’t get to him. My dad actually saw it sitting on the counter and deemed it his own! No matter what man you’re shopping for, these products will be well-received.
What good are all these products if they don’t have anything to put it in? Cotopaxi is known for their repurposed outerwear, but they have some incredible accessories as well. Although they only donate two percent of their yearly revenue to charity, they use recycled fabrics and handmade sewers to assure that these are as purposeful as they can be.
I love giving dopp kits, especially when gifting beauty products. It makes the gift truly complete and helps cut down on wasteful wrapping. Basically, it’s an all-around win for everyone!
With the woodsy, bold packaging, you’d never expect this product to be vegan. Your boyfriend won’t, either! All of the products are plant-derived, have packages made form recycled plastic, and are cruelty-free. But all you have to tell your man is that they smell really good. Let him fall in love with the products before you tell him all the benefits.
It doesn’t get more natural than this. WoodWe makes iPad, iPhone, and Macbook cases that are all raw and sleek at the same time. Whether you’re shopping for a man in business or just a guy that loves nature, this will work for him.
This one isn’t a beauty product, but it’s something that your man won’t necessarily think of asking for. This is a fun surprise and something that allows you to take nature any place you go. Not to mention it’s so aesthetically pleasing.
Not only are these products all-natural, but these are also named after places that the founders explore. Just like those place, the products are also made in the United States. On top of all of that, the brand also donates proceeds from every purchase to the National Parks Foundation to preserve wildlife. Another win for everyone!
Don’t let the name fool you, because these products are great whether your man has a beard or not. Okay, so the products are technically premium beard care. The moisturizer works even on hairless skin as does the oil, according to my boyfriend.
I guarantee that the man in your life will love these products. How do I know? Because I already gave them to my ultra-picky boyfriend and he loved every single one. The proof is right there, my friends!
