The best men’s grooming gift ideas

Grooming products are the unsung heroes of the holiday season.

They’re as utilitarian as it gets, and no guy is going to complain about looking and feeling better—the benefits are immediate and visible.

So, let us help you help him: If you want to gift him something impressive, browse our favorite products of 2017.

1. For the essence

If you want to start him on a new scent, Cartier’s L’Envol de Cartier Eau de Parfum is an obvious choice: It’s woody with a pinch of honey and musk to keep things sweet but broody (from $ 90, cartier.com). Alternatively, stick an Old Spice Classic Solid Deodorant (from $ 4, oldspice.com) in his stocking, too, for a scent that masks his natural musk but won’t overpower the cologne.

2. For the beard

Everything he needs for his beard—except the trimmer—is in the “Man Sack” from Tiny Kitchen Soap Co: balm to tame flyaways and style, oil to soften the hairs and skin, and mustache wax for a fancy twizzle ($ 34.99, tinykitchensoap.co). For the detailing (or for scruff, if he wants a clean trim), snag Conair Man’s 13-piece All-In-One Grooming System—it even has a nose- and ear-hair trimming attachment ($ 19.99, conair.com)

Courtesy Image

3. For the face

Any facial creams or serums from Lab Series’ Max LS line are the grooming equivalent of a gold label. The Maxellence Singular Cream ($ 160) is made from meteorite extract (really) to reverse aging, the Matte Renewal Lotion ($ 63) helps reduce shine while it nourishes skin, and Instant Eye Lift ($ 52) is the stocking stuffer for the guy who couldn’t sleep while anticipating his morning haul.

4. For the body

Few bar soaps compare in size and effectiveness to Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Brick of Soap, and it’s no surprise we like the ones named “Naval Supremacy,” “Big Ass Beer Soap,” and “Big American Bourbon Soap” ($ 9, dukecannon.com). They smell incredible, and a six-pack ($ 33) might last till next year’s holidays. If you’re gifting for a body wash-loving guy, get him the Lqd Body Wash and Coffee Scrub Gift Pack. The body wash boasts coffee extract, aloe, jojoba, and avocado oil to keep skin soft while banishing dirt and grime, while the scrub rejuvenates and sloughs off dead skin. Together, they’re a match made in heaven. ($ 50 for 500ml body wash and 150g scrub, lqd.co)

Courtesy Image

5. For the bare face

If you want to go all out, get him the RAZR Pro Lather Machine ($ 263.92, andis.com) that builds a barbershop-caliber lather—and a hot one, too—for the smoothing, soothing-est shave. You’ll also want to pick up the shave concentrate that goes with it—it goes a long way (from $ 10.79 on overstock.com). As for blades, start him on a Harry’s subscription, so that he gets top-shelf blades and cream, replenished at healthy (that is, hygienic) intervals (from $ 3 per month, harrys.com).

Courtesy Image

6. For the hands

The new kid to the U.S. market comes straight from the Holy Land: Maapilim’s Hand Cream ($ 27, maapilim.com) uses ingredients from the Dead Sea to soothe your mitts and to retire dead skin while letting your healthy cells float to the top. (Plus, it has a scintillating bergamot-and-vetiver scent.) Ursa Major’s Perfect Zen Body Lotion ($ 26, ursamajorvt.com) is a super-natural healer as much as it is a body soother. (But use it for both!)

Courtesy Image

7. For the teeth

Goby’s All-Black Brush Kit ($ 60 with subscription, goby.co) will keep teeth pearly white, and a quarterly subscription (once every three months) will ensure a new brush head arrives at hygienic, ADA-endorsed intervals. The kit comes with a brush, head, charger, hygienic stand, and head cover. Plus: It’s sleek as hell.

Ideas for Improving Life in High Crime Areas

Crime is the base problem for a number of poor urban areas. Wherever you have high crime, you have trouble attracting employers. And without employment options, you end up with poverty, a low tax base to support schools, hopelessness, drug dealing, and the rest. So I thought I would share some ideas for reducing urban crime. The first idea comes from Black Lives Matters out of New York. I can’t judge this sort of idea from my suburban home in California, but I share it with you because it belongs in the conversation. There is a small experiment going on in part of Harlem that has drastically reduced violent gun crime. Police say the big difference is the number of illegal guns they took out of the neighborhoods in question, but they also credit a group called Street Corner Resources with “. . . a mix of adult education courses, connections to legal and housing help and free job placement programs that would result in positions that could pay $ 40 to $ 50 a day more than selling drugs.”

I think it’s always fair to be skeptical of success claims. But I like any plan that can be tested small and evaluated. This example fits that model perfectly. Ideally, we should have a dozen different programs running in different neighborhoods around the country to see which ones work best.

I’d also like to see a system in which senior citizens within a dangerous neighborhood can watch security camera videos of all public spaces in their general area and report suspicious activity to police. Perhaps they can be paid for this service. You’d need a system that piped the videos directly to residential TV sets or mobile devices and randomized the camera views so the criminals never know which residents are watching which blocks. That keeps the watchers safe.

I would also expect more police and security drones coming into use to get closer looks at crime in progress, and to follow perps back to their hiding places. Imagine a senior citizen viewing a crime on a security cam and alerting police who send up the closest drone from a secure rooftop nearby to get a better look. That should drive most crime indoors, at the very least.

I’m sure there are lots of other ideas for reducing crime. I’d like to see the government do a better job of shining a light on various local crime-fighting experiments so everyone knows the options and we can pick the winners as they are identified. Wouldn’t you like to see regular reports on the news about crime-fighting experiments that are working well?

Update: Baltimore is using aerial surveillance to fight crime. See article.

News in Brief: CEO Has Big Ideas To Grow Company’s Problems

NEW YORK—Laying out several new initiatives and detailed plans for implementing them in the upcoming weeks and months, Janneson Media CEO Adam Hamlin revealed to his staffers Thursday that he has some really big ideas for growing the company’s problems, sources reported. “I was initially skeptical of any aggressive growth strategy given the current size of our company’s problems, but after hearing Adam outline his proposals, I’m now completely confident that we can double the size of our problems over the next quarter,” said Janneson employee Wendy Lyman, noting that the CEO’s plan included changes that would create more issues across every department and significantly increase the number of difficulties and setbacks by the end of the year. “He certainly doesn’t have a traditional approach, but you can’t expect the kind of rapid, eye-catching deterioration of a company’s image and market value …

Ready for Leather Weather? Meet Zana Bayne’s Bright Ideas for Spring ’16

zana bayne

Even if you don’t know Zana Bayne’s name, you probably know her work. The leather maven’s decidedly bondage-y designs—harnesses, chokers, skirts, bags, etc.—have been spotted on the likes of Debbie Harry, Zoë Kravitz, and Anja Rubik (who sports hers regularly with crisp white oxfords). And if an undeniably dark appeal has characterized Bayne’s designs in past, her tropically-tinged Spring ’16 lineup, dubbed Bossa Nova, brings a new side of the label’s aesthetic to the fore.

Taking cues from mod icons like Courrèges and Cardin, the designer introduced juicy pops of coral and raspberry leather alongside all her classic noir (whatever the hue, all pieces are made by hand in her New York studio). Graphic petal shapes inspired by her ’60s influences appear as one of Bayne’s signature lattice-like skirts—ideal for layering over a prim midi skirt—but also in the form of footwear. Both ankle- and knee-high styles mark a first step into shoes for the brand. And for the truly statement-making among us, look no further than the Side-Eye Hat: a quietly Surrealist, wide-brimmed number in jet-black leather with a generous peephole cut in the brim, perfect for a little shade in the sun—or throwing a little shade in the sun.

News in Brief: Man’s Body Running Out Of Ideas To Convince Him He Full

BAYTOWN, TX—Having repeatedly ratcheted up the 34-year-old’s level of discomfort with no noticeable effect on his behavior, the body of local man Kent Dugan confirmed Wednesday that it was starting to run out of ideas to convince him that he was full. “I’ve nearly maxed out the aches and pains in his stomach and pumped out a ton of sweat on his brow, but he just keeps on shoveling down waffle fries,” reported Dugan’s body, adding that it had already tried some nausea, abdominal bloating, and a bout of acid reflux, none of which had slowed Dugan’s consumption in the slightest. “I’m pretty much out of options at this point. Short of physically locking his jaw shut, I don’t know what else can be done.” At press time, the man’s body was briefly contemplating giving him a heart attack.

The flowers can be sprinkled over yogurt or used in tarts and cakes. In Germany and Austria, the flower heads are batter-fried into fritters called “Hollerküchel.” Holla!

For strict offices where you need to keep covered, think loose. A feminine blouse and a breezy midi skirt won’t stick to your skin like that pencil suit. For accessories, try statement earrings to accentuate however you’ve pulled your hair back. Get the look.

3 Breezy Hair Ideas That Are Made for a Day of Denim

Gigi Hadid

Whether your idea of a rejuvenating Sunday entails a post-gym, pre-manicure shopping spree or an afternoon plate of farm-fresh eggs Benedict with an extra side of hollandaise, it can be universally agreed on that a complicated hair routine has no place in our day of rest. Anyone feel compelled to blow out a shower-fresh bob before heading to brunch? Kate Bosworth has a message for you: Don’t bother. After all, that’s what a neat center part and a breezy day are for. It’s a sentiment Gigi Hadid recently echoed by pulling her windswept strands into a textured ponytail. And leaving no doubt that a bit of second-day tousle can hold its own among the most laborious styles, Dree Hemingway took her slept-in flaxen waves all the way to the red carpet. Here, three off-duty hair ideas that feel as easy as slipping on a favorite pair of jeans.

Spring And Summer Gift Ideas For Fashinoistas, Foodies, Decorating Buffs And Beauty Junkies

It’s spring time! It’s spring and summer holiday and events time!

That means Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations, birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, and special events of all kinds. And with it, gifting is often a part — whether it’s for those hosting the fete, grads, moms, dads, or whatever other guest of honor you might be celebrating. He or she might be a fashion enthusiast, foodie, or have miles of beauty products in the cabinet. Whatever interests or hobbies your special somebody has, make the gift giving easier with some of these cool, chic and pretty much perfect gift items.

One key way to gift well regardless of who you’re gifting to is to look to unique, upstart and independent product brands. While the boutique brand experience is hardly new to the world, there are more of these types of products and companies in stores than ever. Check out independent fashion or home decor designers in your area, or hop over to Whole Foods or any gourmet shop on or offline to find the perfect food lover item. It’s a clever way to give something special and unique without breaking the bank.

On to your recipients. The fashionista can seem hard to shop for so keep gift items to the universal that can be worn his or her way. That can be simple wallets, a great cashmere wrap in a solid color, or anything that’s a bit workable for any taste or style. Deux Lux, a vegan handbag and accessories line, is carried at a ton of luxury retail stores and looks and endures as well as any traditional accessory brand, yet is incredibly affordable. Perfect for spring and summer gifts!

Playing on the season trends is another way to gift fashion — bright, bold yellow is a hot color for 2015. Go with an accessory like a bright jewelry piece or a card case as gift items if you’re not sure an apparel item would be ideal. Copper metal is everywhere for spring and summer this year. Lainieline’s collection has beautiful, effortless pieces in the popular metal that can be a great gift for moms, grads, family or friends.

Beauty lovers might be among the easiest to shop for when it comes to presents. Condiment editors love SpaRitual products across the board — especially its sand scrubs for the shower or bath. The company is one of the leading in natural products, none of which are tested on animals. The rich scents and luxury textures make them every bit as chic and decadent for gift recipients. Stowaway cosmetics is perfect for college grads, those who’ll be embarking on internships, traveling for study programs, or moms and working women on the go. Products are designed for just this, and the quality is fantastic.

The foodie’s another easy one to shop for, especially during summer months when outdoor cooking and other feasts are popular. Nothing says warm weather season than s’mores outside by the fire. Plush Puffs gourmet marshmallows pack interesting and unique flavors and high quality perfect for this. Or, grab a stylish basket or container of any kind and pack with a range of spring and summer produce that’s in season. Toss in gourmet chocolates, bake mixes or other non-perishable treats that compliment the fruits and veggies you’ve pulled together.

For house and home, there are also a ton of items perfect for saying thank you, congratulations or other celebrations. Spanish glassware is a fun way to incorporate something unusual and unexpected into a gift item. It makes a statement and conversation piece yet is simple to work with any taste or style. For students and young professionals who’ve graduated and will be off to college or first apartments, popular budget-friendly fashion stores like Zara, Target and H&M offer great houseware items perfect for gifts. Zara Home’s boxes and baskets are in particular perfect.

4 Pastel Makeup Ideas to Brighten Your Easter Sunday: Taking Cues from the Spring Collections

Steven Meisel Natalia Vodianova

If there was ever a time to experiment with a candy-colored makeup palette, it’s Easter—which isn’t to say that festive pops of pastel pigment can’t radiate the same cool minimalism that won us over on the spring 2015 runways. Why not take cues from Dior’s sky blue tailored coatdress with a matching cerulean manicure? Or consider a swipe of petal pink lipstick and a swirl of rosy blush inspired by Altuzarra’s gingham power suit? One look at Balenciaga’s netted lavender dress might embolden the color-shy to try a wash of lilac shadow, while Stella McCartney’s buttercup jumpsuit is enough to make us try a color-corrective primer with imperfection-blurring yellow undertones. With that in mind, we’ve put together a spring fever–worthy range of fresh, powdery makeup shades—from Clé de Peau Beauté’s light-diffusing luminizer to Deborah Lippmann’s buttercup nail polish—that will liven up sun-starved skin better than the best bronzer.

When Ideas Win

I love watching a good idea kill a bad idea.

It doesn’t happen often. The more typical situation is that people have opinions, those opinions are resistant to data, and everything stays the same until you die.

But sometimes a new idea is just so obviously better than competing ideas that once it is released into the wild of the Internet it becomes like a virus that hunts and destroys the weaker ones.

Most of my ideas are weak and experimental. You readers strangle them to death before they leave the safety of this blog page. And I appreciate that.

But sometimes I write something that escapes its original home and takes on a life of its own. That seems to be happening with the concept of “systems versus goals. A Google search gets over 7,000 hits now. The idea is somewhat unstoppable once you see it explained. (One could argue that explaining it better is all I added.)

Another time a good idea devoured a bad one was with the fake debate on doctor-assisted suicide. I pointed out on the Internet that when you ask the question right, everyone is on the same side. That effectively ended the debate. No one stepped forward to say they want the government to decide how much they should suffer before dying. It will take some time for laws to change, but the idea that half the country favors allowing the government to torture grandma to death is now understood to be a myth. 

But just in case, I sent the Compassion and Choices organization a sizable donation to press their case. Money always beats ideas. Have to cover all bases.
