TSNC Christmas Gift Guide: Everything You Need for the Man in your Life!

Posted on December 17, 2018

I have a whole host of Gift Guides coming up over the next couple of days, and I’m kicking things off this morning with one just for the guys. Whether it’s your dad, brother, boyfriend or BFF, I’ve got you covered with today’s Gift Guide for Men – I hope you enjoy!

Let’s start with one of the more high end items. The multi-award winning Nextbase 412GW Dash Cam would definitely make for the ultimate gift this Christmas! It features a 3” LED colour screen, QUAD HD 1440p footage delivering stunning video clarity, inbuilt Wi-Fi and much much more. This dash cam is easy to set up and use, it’s effective, reliable and endorsed by the AA.

Here are some more in depth specs to tempt you –

  • Quad HD 1440p recording at 30fps and 1080p recording at 60fps
  • Powered Click & Go mount for simple, instant connection
  • Night vision provides optimised footage in poor light

Next the Feelunique Men’s Little Beauty Parcel – this just perfect for the guy that has everything. It’s really reasonably priced at £20.00 and includes a capsule grooming edit of products he’ll actually use – including a refreshing scrub, a caffeine-fuelled moisturiser, a balm that can be used to tame his beard or barnet and even a rejuvenating sheet mask. This is exclusive for Christmas 2018 so snap it up while you can! (I’ve just done a quick add up and the contents come to pretty much £50.00, so this really is a fantastic bargain!)

  • Gentlemen’s Tonic Exfoliating Facial Scrub 100ml
  • men-ü MATT Moisturiser buddy tube 15ml
  • BARBER PRO Gentleman’s Sheet Mask 23g
  • ManCave Natural Original Moisturiser 30ml
  • TIGI Bed Head For Men Lion Tamer Beard & Hair Balm 100ml

Or how about the Superdry Men’s Sport Sport Boxers Set? – I know neon orange isn’t going to be everybody’s cup of tea, but for fans of Superdry, this affordable little set could be just the ticket. Included is a pair of Superdry Sport’s signature boxer shorts, a Body+Hair Wash and Sport Soak – everything you need for the ultimate post-workout re-charge.

On to fragrance now, the Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male 2018 Collector’s Edition EDT is just stunning. JPG Le Male is a classic mens scent that’s been around since 1995 would you believe! This year’s Christmas Collectors Edition bottle features the Le Male figure dressed in a super sweet red Christmas jumper, housed in a fully functioning snow globe case. This would make a really special gift for fans of the fragrance.

  • Top notes: Artemesia, cardamom, bergamot, mint, lavender
  • Heart notes: Cinnamon, orange blossom, caraqay
  • Base notes: Cedar, vanilla, amber, tonka bean, sandalwood

Or how about the Jimmy Choo Man Intense Gift Set? Smooth and sophisticated, Man Intense is confident and intriguing – refined but with a fearless attitude. The fragrance opens with floral notes, watery honeydew melon and sweet mandarin, leading to a heart of artemisia and geranium, accented with black pepper, and the base of tonic bean and patchouli round the fragrance of with a warm, masculine aroma.

  • Top Notes: Lavender, Honeydew Melon, Mandarin
  • Heart Notes: Artemisia, Black Pepper, Geranium
  • Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Patchouli

And last but not least – I’m a big fan of luxury skincare brand L’Occitane, and they always produce the most gorgeous gift sets for Christmas. The L”Occitane Cedrat Gift Setwould make a wonderful luxury gift for a loved one. The Cedrat fragrance is refreshing, masculine and full of character, blending citrus notes of cedrat with icy cool notes of mint and woody spices. Her’s what’s included in the set –

  • L’Homme Cologne Cedrat Eau de Toilette 75ml
  • L’Homme Cologne Cedrat Shower Gel Body & Hair 250ml
  • L’Homme Cologne Cedrat Gel-Cream After-Shave 30ml

Stocking Filler Ideas for Men

Posted on December 9, 2015

gifts-for-men

Hi Guys!

In my experience, when it comes to Christmas, men are (usually) pretty easy to buy for. Unless my Dad asks for something specific, he will always get a combination of socks / tobacco / Bacardi / whiskey – and he’s happy as Larry. My other half, he has some sort of weird sock fetish and seems to buy multi packs of them whenever we go to the supermarket, so no socks for him! He’s really into his hobbies though, which at the moment include brewing his own beer and metal detecting. So he’ll be getting some sort of book on metal detecting, as well as something with chills in it, and possibly a new Christmas jumper.

Toiletries are always a handy stocking filler though, things that are useful such as body spray, shower gel, shaving products, these are always greatly received in my family as they’re pretty much guaranteed to get used! So I’ve put together a few stocking filler ideas below for the men in your family…

menrock-beard-oil

For the bearded man in your life, what about some fancy beard oil? I have a couple here from brand Menrock, in Soul and Blues (£14.50 each)

Soul is described as a fun, good time scent, and it’s designed to act like a light cologne as well as a beard softener. Suitable for all skin types, this beard oil is formulated with natural ingredients, including Vitamin E, which help to nourish the beard and moisturise the skin beneath it.

Blues also includes Vitamin E oil, as well as cypress, grapeseed oil and vetivert. This beard product helps nourish your skin and beard. Follicles are also conditioned and softened, making beards softer, thicker and healthier.

neville-shave-cream

On the subject of beards, what about a tube of Neville Shaving Cream? This is £14.00 for 100ml and contains moisturising olive fruit oil and soothing, plant-based bisabolol, which help to restore skin for a more youthful complexion, as well as organic Aloe vera which is rich in essential nutrients needed to soothe and repair, whilst its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce irritation from shaving.

american-crew-products

american-crew-defining-paste

If your guy is more into the hair on his head that on his face, there’s also a couple of fab products from Americal Crew worth checking out. The American Crew Defining Paste (£10.75) is the perfect product to give body to those with limp and lifeless hair. Suitable for those with longer styles, this product has a waxy consistency that provides medium hold with a matte finish. Containing Lanolin, Beeswax and Glycerin, this product gives hair a much-needed moisture boost to keep it in prime condition, whilst adding definition and texture to your style.

If his hair is shorter, the American Crew Fiber (£11.15) could be the product for him. Fiber has developed a cult following amongst professional hair stylists, and it gives a fabulous matt texture without any shine. Perfect for contemporary chopped and textured styles, this product provides control and flexibility with a natural matte look.

the-real-shaving-company-products

If you’re on the hunt for slightly more purse-friendly products, The Real Shaving Company have some fantastic shaving products that won’t break the bank –

Their Traditional Shaving Cream (£3.99) provides a rich creamy lather that cushions and lifts bristles away from the skin, for ultimate friction-free shaving. It contains moisturising organic cocoa butter and willow bark to reduce razor drag, leaving skin feeling supple and conditioned.

The Real Shaving Company also have a nice Anti-Ageing Sensitive Moisturiser (£4.99) with Q10 technology to target wrinkles for younger, firmer looking skin. Also suitable for sensitive skin, this soothing product aims to revitalise and moisturise skin, leaving a non-oily matte finish.

man-tin

And lastly – I don’t know about yours, but my other half constantly has little piles of ‘stuff’ laying around the kitchen. There’ll be a pile of change next to the kettle, a few screws, a pencil and nuts and bolts next to the sink, and not to mention various receipts, scraps of paper with ‘important notes’ on and other bits and pieces laying around. If you have a partner that’s similar, and it drives you up the wall, I think the Man Tin (£6.99) is a great idea for a Christmas present! 🙂 Check out Qwerkity’s site where the have a fantastic range of other Christmas gifts for men.

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
