Men's "Beauty" Last Minute Gift Guide

I see blogs full and full of gift idea's for women, for me that's the easy part. Women are so much easier to buy for than the men in your lives! So I've rounded up a few last minute gift idea's (if you're anything like me) to buy for all the lads in your life to make sure they're smelling lovely. D Day is so close now and I'm running around like a headless chicken, as I'm off to have my Gallbladder removed on Monday! Long story but all will be okay soon! Happy last minute shopping Lads! 
Rodger & Gallet
I'm such a huge fan of this brand. The Fig Perfume (Review Here) is what I've been wearing all Winter. It smells so good. My Dad is a big fan of this range too and I may just surprise him on Christmas Morning with this as he lost his last bottle on a family trip to Paris. He loves the stuff and I can see why. It's not too expensive, but still has that luxury feel to it, and they have it presented beautifully for Christmas. L'Homme Spore is a woody and masculine scent with top notes of spearmint and lemon, heart notes of ylang yland layered on a woody base of amber, vetyvert and patchoulli. This gift set is priced at under €43 which is a bargain and like I said comes beautifully wrapped - again if you're like me and absolutely rubbish at wrapping presents. If you're looking to get this last minute here's the link to all stockists of Rodger and Gallet in Ireland! The men in your life will only be Deliraa. 

The Body Shop
Who doesn't like the Body Shop? I for one am such a huge fan, as so is my Dad. I've opted for something different this year as I always pick him up something in the Body Shop. His Birthday is in January so I'll probably cave and get him something for that, but for Christmas this year I've vowed to get him something a bit different. The Body Shop have such a good collection of gifts and they also gift wrap beautifully, so again no fuss, no muss for you. All the products are fantastic, my Dad has been swearing by them for years and years. They have gift set's and something for every budget too, which is great. You can also make your own little gift set and have them wrap it up nice for you so your gift is that little more personal. If they're unfamiliar with the products I'd suggest a smaller gift set like the one above, so they can test it out and see what products they love the best - and the next occasion you can go for the bigger version! 
Boots No.7
I'm such a big fan of Boots, especially their No.7 range. It's affordable and the quality of the products is great. As we all know Boots do loads of 3 for 2 gifts so you can kill two birds with the one stone on this one. This Set comes with a cute wash bag, which let's be honest is always handy to have for the gym/holidays etc. It's also great for a last minute Kris Kindle present priced at €25. I love getting gift sets for Christmas, as I'm always using bits and bobs and I love testing new products. Men are notorious for not using face products so a little gift set like this could get them hooked on the beauty bug and will give them a gentle push in the right direction and if it's your fellah, you'll reap the rewards of them spelling lovely!
