Skincare gift ideas for men.

From Father’s Day to birthdays, spoil the man in your life with our selection of the best skincare and grooming gifts for men.

It’s the age-old question: what do you buy the man who has it all? Whatever the occasion, however tricky the recipient, a skincare gift set is always a good idea for the man in your life. Whether he’s a skincare aficionado with a multi-step routine locked down, or a total novice who’s been using the same face wash/body wash/shampoo for years, there’s a Clinique For Men™ gift set for him. The trick is to strike a happy balance between useful, practical and thoughtful – if you know he’s prone to dry, uncomfortable skin post-shave, set him up with a soothing hydrating regime. If he loves the gym, treat him to a washbag stocked with all the post-workout essentials. Or if he’s forever borrowing your favourite cleanser or moisturiser, now’s the perfect time to gift him his own routine (a win-win for you.)


Whoever you’re shopping for (self-gifting included) we’ve got you covered with this guide to the best skincare gift ideas for men. Keep reading for our top five Clinique For Men™ gift ideas.




1. For the skincare beginner. 


Gifting skincare can be tricky, so before you buy a full-size routine, a starter kit of travel-size essentials can be a good way to test the waters. We have three Clinique For Men™ Starter Kit options tailored to specific skin types and concerns, each featuring a three-step routine that’s the ideal introduction to skincare. Take your pick from the Daily Oily Control set for oily skin, which features a face wash, shaving cream and oil-free moisturiser; the Daily Age Repair set, stocked with a face wash, shaving cream and Anti-Age moisturiser; or choose the Daily Intense Hydration kit for extra dry skin types, complete with a face wash, shaving cream and our Maximum Hydrator Water-Gel Concentrate. Then if he tries it and loves it, you can upgrade him to the full sizes next time. 





2. For the active man. 


The Clinique For Men™ Energising Kit is the ideal men's skincare gift for any gym lover. This stylish and compact washbag comes stocked with five skincare and grooming minis, making it the perfect grab-and-go kit for his morning workouts or even to throw in his hand luggage on work trips. Worth £36, it features our signature bestselling face wash, a revitalising face scrub, our soothing cream shave, alongside our Super Energizer™ SPF 40 Anti-Fatigue Hydrating Concentrate and a refreshing Anti-Age eye cream to complete his energising post-workout routine.




3. For the fragrance fan. 


If he’s looking for a new everyday scent, treat him to the ultimate uplifting cologne – Clinique Happy™ For Men. A cool, crisp and refreshing scent with a hint of vibrant citrus, our signature cologne for men features in this three-piece Happy For Him Fragrance Gift Set, alongside a scented body and hair wash and our bestselling face scrub, which is great for prepping and smoothing skin pre-shave. Worth over £85, it’s the ideal luxury fragrance gift set for men.




4. For the minimalist.


A simple, fuss-free routine is a great skincare gift idea for the busy man in your life. Sometimes with skincare, less is more, which makes the Daily Oil-Free Hydration Skincare Set For Men a solid gift idea for men who want to take care of themselves, but don’t necessarily have the time or desire to commit to a more complex regime. This specific set is tailored to oily and combination skin types, and contains our Face Wash Oily Skin Formula to thoroughly cleanse and sweep away excess oil, alongside a smoothing Face Scrub and our Oil-Free Moisturizer for lightweight, oil-free hydration. It’s also a great men's skincare gift idea for teenagers who are prone to breakouts and blemishes.




5. For the outdoorsy guy.


It goes without saying that everyone should wear SPF every day – whatever the weather. But if the man in your life is super sporty, a keen gardener or a bit of a globetrotter, this is particularly important. Drop the hint with our bestselling Clinique For Men™ SPF 21 Moisturizer – it’s a lightweight, oil-free hydrator with daily UVA/UVB protection that’s super low-maintenance and easy reapply throughout the day.
