Christmas is meant to be shared, but there’s no need to break the bank. Here’s a handful of Holiday gifts for 2016. We’ve got something for everyone— the fitness obsessed hottie, the cool cat, the posh pampering lover and the sophisticated stud.
BIRCHBOX FOR MEN
Customized for that sophisticated stud, the Birchbox for Men ($20 a month/$99 for 6 months) is the gift that keeps on giving. Since no two guys are alike each Birchbox is tailored to suit one’s personal style. The box features a range of top-shelf grooming samples— from daily moisturizers to classic pomades— plus a full-size product like a gadget, bar tool or stylish accessory. Its beauty made easy and delivered right to one’s front door! Available at birchbox.com.
