Gift sets for men used to be a bit naff – remember Old Spice? Even today, we’d rather the entire male population did not have to smell like David Beckham or Jack Wills. Thankfully, our favourite spa brands have some gorgeously scented skincare and shower products for the chaps in your life, all beautifully tied up in a manly Christmas bow. Here are our top five.
Temple Spa’s Make My Day (£40). A top-to-toe grooming collection in a sleek black travel man-bag. Includes Cool, Calm and Collected cologne, Way to Go cleansing gel wash, Stubble Trouble shave gel, The Multi-Tasker hair and body wash, and Peace Be Still post-shave skin saver.
Spongellé Men’s Triple Butter Supreme Buffer (20 + washes £13.50, 12 + washes £9.95), Give your man the dry woody scent of cedar infused with black tea and coffee and a triple-boosting moisture formula to make his skin smooth to touch. Scrub, cleanse and hydrate all in one. And a black ribbon to hang in the shower.
ThalgoMen Christmas Gift Set (£38). Ocean goodness for your very own Prometheus, this elegant gift set includes Wake-Up Shower Gel (75ml), Intensive Hydrating Cream (50ml) and Anti-Fatigue Serum for Eyes (15ml).

Elemis Magnificent Man Gift Set (£42.50). Like his ego needs boosting any more… but him indoors will surely appreciate these lovely male grooming essentials.
