 For the man in your life

Natural Christmas Gifts For Men NZ

It doesn’t matter if he’s your partner, your Dad, your brother or your buddy - these natural men’s goodies will have him feeling pampered and appreciated this Christmas. 

 

The Weleda treatment

Did you know Weleda have a whole lot of incredible, ethical and sustainable products made just for men? They’re all super gentle and perfect for any guy who loves to feel smooth, clean and refreshed (I mean, who doesn’t right?)

Weleda Shaving Cream- This shaving cream works a treat on pretty much anybody, but it’s especially good for taming that 5’oclock shadow come Christmas Day! It’s suitable for sensitive skin and is super smooth with Goat’s Milk and Almond Milk to soothe while he shaves.

Welled Moisture Cream for Men- Because men deserve soft skin too! Welder’s Moisture for Men is a fast and effective moisturiser built to re-hydrate even the toughest skin quickly. This special natural blend uses Marshmallow Root as a key ingredient - traditionally used to help relieve skin inflammation. 

He can use it as a daily moisturiser, or apply it to his neck and face as a soothing aftershave. If he’s feeling generous he might even let you use some too!

Weleda Men's 24hr Deodorant -An all natural 24hr deodorant may sound like madness but believe me, it exists and it is awesome.Weleda Men’s 24hr Deodorant has a refined, masculine scent enhanced with rosemary and fresh-scented vetiver oils. 

Because it’s ahealthy, natural deodorant it doesn’t have any pore-blocking aluminium in it either. It means he can stay smelling great all day without wreaking havoc on his body - bonus!

 

Abel Odor White Vetiver -Speaking of Vetiver, if your guy loves to smell slick and suave you really can’t beat Abel Odor’s White Vetiver scent. If he suits Creed Original Vetiver, The Different Company Sel de Vetiver, or Terre D'Hermes Parfum you can expect more of the same from this natural, synthetic-free option.

Top notes of Lime, Spearmint and Bergamot make way for spiced Ginger and deeper Vetiver, Vanilla and Ambergris. It really is a dose of pure, refreshing class (and it’s guaranteed to earn you brownie points for popping it under the tree!)

 

Snowberry Soothing Massage Oil -Because honestly, what man can have too much aftershave? This luxurious massage oil ticks all the best boxes - it stimulates collagen production, hydrates the skin and soothes with Chamomile extracts, Azulene, Incha Inchi, Passion Flower and Rose Hip Oil.
