The Body Shop are always a go-to for me when it comes to buying gifts at Christmas time.
If I'm needing presents for my best friend, my daughter or even my parents, I know I'll be able to find something for each of them, yes, even the men.

When I was asked to take part in The Body Shop Advent Calendar this year, it couldn't have been more fitting, as, without giving any spoilers away, a few of my nearest and dearest have some Body Shop shaped gifts waiting for them under my tree.

 
Beauty based gifts for men can be slightly overlooked, and although they probably won't admit to it, I'm sure they all wait for new scents, bath products and beauty regime products in their stocking each year.
The Body Shop cater for all skin types and all needs, even with their Christmas gift sets and of course all products are cruelty free.

My three top picks from the range in store now are a great mixture, with something to suit most men's tastes and individual style, so if you're a last minute shopper like me, get yourself into town and into your local store with these on your shopping list and you'll be part of the way there.

The Modern Gent's Activist Fragrance Kit comes packaged in a big black and grey tin and includes three full size products; Shower Gel, Deodorant and Eau De Toilette, all of which have the most uplifting, warm and spicy scent to them. For a morning shower and spritz, they are ideal to really awaken and freshen him up.
The design and packaging is all very smart and sleek, and definitely looks much more high end than it actually is... Here you're getting the quality but for a really affordable price.

The Modern Gent's Maca Root Rescue Kit also comes in a tin (making it super easy to wrap - bonus!)  and is perfect for any man wanting to hydrate his tired, dull and dried out skin. The kit contains a full size Face Protector and an Eye Rescue Serum, both of which will be useful for a man of any age, wether he's just starting out with skincare, or he's a bit of an expert.

Lastly, The Modern Gent's Shaving Kit comes in a lovely grey wash bag and is the perfect little gift for any bearded man in your life.
This selection of products is sure to keep his beard under control and groomed to perfection with the Maca Root Shave Cream to help achieve a smoother and cleaner shave, wooden shaving brush with synthetic hair and the Cooling & Calming Razor Relief Gel to soothe his skin afterwards.

All three kit's focus around the ingredient of Peruvian maca root, which in these products has been developed to meet men's skincare needs. It reduced the appearance of dull, dry skin, maintains firmness making skin appear younger and works to boost energy and vitality.
