Braun CoolTec, £99.99 (Was £199.99)

I love Braun products. I picked up my first Braun product many years back and since then every product I have tried from Braun has impressed me. Braun have an impressive range of products for men as well and one of them features in this gift guide - the Braun °CoolTec. It is said to be the world’s first and only electric shaver engineered with pioneering Active Cooling Technology to combine a great shaving performance with a special cooling treatment. This is especially suitable for men with sensitive skin. The shaver cools and calms skin to minimize shaving irritation at the push of a button. Mr.H has tried this and cannot recommend it enough. Mr.H always experienced red and itching skin after shaving mainly due to his dry and sensitive skin. But with the CoolTec it is a refreshing shave every time with very little or no irritation at all. The Braun CoolTec would make an excellent present for anyone who loves grooming gadgets.

Get Ahead Ted, £18.00

Ted Baker has loads of gifts for men this year which are available exclusively from Boots. One of the gift sets is the 'Get Ahead Ted' set which includes a Ted Baker custom-engineered Body Spray, Hair & Body Wash with a (be)spoke wallet. This is a wonderful gifting idea. I feel it would be ideal gift for younger brothers or cousins. Ted Baker also have an excellent stocking filler for men this year. You can read about it here.

Scholl Energy Percussion Massager, £39.99

If you are looking for gifts for the fitness focussed or for someone who suffers from aches and pains due to regular sporting activities, then Scholl have the perfect gifting option for you. Fitness gadgets have been a big trend this year and the festive season is no exception. You could buy someone the gift of massage this Christmas! The Scholl Energy Percussion Massager is the ideal choice for those who lead an active lifestyle. The massager helps prepare the body both before and after physical activity. It has interchangeable massage nodes and variable speeds to manage aches, to help improve circulation and also to aid in muscle relaxation. We have tried this ourselves at DB Reviews and find it very useful. An excellent way to relax away your aches and pains.
