Gift sets and kits generally give you the best bang for your buck when it comes to gifting. They also take a lot of the guesswork out of picking the right products, making it much easier to nail the perfect present. Check out our round-up of some of the best gift sets and kits for men this Christmas…
gentSac – The Groomed Man Face & Beard Kit
For grooming gifts, it’s hard to look past gentSac. The Sydney-based store has recently collaborated with Melbourne label The Groomed Man Co to create a new special edition Face & Beard Kit. Inside the limited edition black bag you’ll find some of the grooming brand’s flagship products like their beard oil, beard balm, cleanser, face scrub, and moisturiser; essentials for a well-groomed appearance and happy skin.
This gift set by Void Watches is a godsend for those wanting to step up their watch game simply and efficiently. The set includes a stainless steel strap, a leather strap, and a changing tool. The watch itself has a refined and minimal design that grants it great versatility. It features a clean white dial, a small date display, and elegant numbers and hands. A Japanese Quartz Miyota movement keeps it ticking on time.
When it comes to wine, Cellarmasters has you covered this Christmas. Both wines in this pack are award winners, with one red and one white to cover both bases. The bottles – a 2016 Mockingbird Hill Slate Lane Clare Valley Shiraz and a 2016 Avon Brae High Eden Craneford Eden Valley Chardonnay – come packaged nicely in a rustic wooden box too.
We’d be remiss not to include something of our own in this guide. The Archive Bundle features three issues of HEY GENTS Magazine, including the brand new Issue 04. Each issue of the magazine offers useful guides, travel tips, product recommendations, interviews, and more.
The His Favourites Gift Set by Bellroy offers exceptional value for three of the brand’s top products. It includes a Note Sleeve Wallet, Key Cover, and Classic Pouch; three essential pieces of gear designed to make your everyday carry more simple and organised. The wallet is slim yet functional with the capability of holding up to 11 cards and cash without getting bulky. The Key Cover can hold up to four keys plus a car key, and the pouch is ideal for organising cables or toiletries.
If you’re buying a gift for a vinyl enthusiast but don’t want to risk getting them a record they might not like, then this set from Clean Sound AM is perfect. It features a Record Cleaner, Anti-Static Vinyl Brush, and a Stylus Cleaner. The cleaning kit helps to get the best sound out of a record player by increasing the dynamic range, giving a richer tonal balance, and improving the bass response.
Another great gift idea for wine lovers; L’Atelier du Vin’s Oeno Collection 1 includes four tools to elevate the experience of enjoying a glass. It features a special cork opener to make opening a bottle of sparkling a breeze, as well as a Bubble Cork to keep it bubbly once the bottle’s open. The set also has a traditional corkscrew for corked wines, plus a Pourer-Leaf that oxygenates wine as it’s poured. The tools all come beautifully packaged in a modern black box that makes for an elegant Christmas gift.
Provider Store makes brewing the perfect cup of filter coffee an easy and stylish experience. Their Ceramic Pour Over and Pinch Cup are both handmade in the north of Thailand and feature a unique and minimalist look. Using the pour over is a simple process and results in a smooth, clean tasting coffee. This is the ideal pair to complement a slow Sunday morning spent lounging and relaxing at home.
Sheets On The Line – Pure Belgian Linen Bed Sheet Set
Linen is one of the softest and most comfortable fabrics you can have on your bed, which makes the Sheets On The Line Pure Belgian Linen Bed Sheet Set a thoughtful gift this Christmas. The Storm colour is an elegant shade of grey that would nicely complement any modern bedroom decor. Conveniently, the fitted sheet in the set is deep walled, meaning it’ll fit over thick mattresses. If you’ve ever tried to stretch a sheet to its limit to get it over a mattress you’ll understand how welcome this feature is.
Moving beyond their signature premium yet casual take on men’s clothing, footwear, and accessories, Saturdays NYC have launched a line of simple and effective grooming products.
