The holiday shopping season is among us, which means it’s time to start thinking gifts. Continuing Vee Travels’ gift guide series, this week covers the shaving and body care sets that the men in your life (or you) will want to use each day:

The Art Of Shaving – The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave in Ocean Kelp


Known for its premium quality grooming products, a shave set from The Art Of Shaving is always a classic holiday gift. Its trademark The 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave helps you get a close shave while minimizing or preventing (which depends on your razor and own technique) razor burn, ingrown hair and cuts by following the easy instructions of how to apply and use the shaving experience essentials: pre-shave gel (2 oz), shaving cream (5 oz), after-shave lotion (3.4 oz), and a Pure Badger Black shaving brush. The fresh Ocean Kelp scent comes with light aromatic oils of laminaria allege extract and coconut acid, among others, and leaves your face feeling nourished and energized, in my case.  ($115, The Art Of Shaving)

Billy Jealousy – Shave3Some Travel-Size Shave Trio


For quick shave that’s easy to bring along in your carry-on and still provides that barbershop feel, Billy Jealousy‘s Shave3Some collects its unique shave system of the Hot Towel (a pre-shave treatment liquid agent that heats up the area of your face you apply it that lifts and softens your facial hair for an easier shave), Hydroplane (a slick, foamless shave cream) and Shaved Ice (a cooling after-shave balm). No scents are added, giving you the freedom to apply your choice of fragrance. ($40, Billy Jealousy)

TURO SKIN – Dopp Kit


Providing a multi-beneficial and simple line of skin and body care products, TURO SKIN has released a new dopp kit set that features three of its essential products: Multi-Active Shave (a light, self-foaming cream that exfoliate the skin and has anti-aging ingredients such as algae extract), 3-in-1 Shower Cleanser (as its name implies, it’s a conditioning shampoo, cleanser and moisturizer) and the Daily Moisturizing Lotion + Sunscreen Broad Spectrum (this SPF 15 lotion hydrates the skin, has the anti-inflammatory and anti-aging ingredient of sea mayweed extract). The Shower Cleanser is perfect to have at the gym when you need a quick shower, and all the products come in a small leather and vinyl toiletry bag. ($119,

ManCave Natural Grooming – The Originals Set


From the UK, ManCave Natural Grooming offers an inexpensive men’s grooming line that’ll make any eco-friendly chap fall head over heels for it. All of the products are cruelty-free, with an official stamp, and containing no parabens (controversial preservative chemicals), aluminum or sulfates (another controversial ingredient). The Originals Set features all of ManCave’s five core natural products, each with their own set of added benefits from ingredients such a vitamin E, shea butter and/or L-Arginine, that are part of a men’s everyday routine: shower gel, shampoo, face wash, moisturizer, and an innovative 24-hour liquid deodorant that is easily applied and controlled by an on/off switch.

Literally having the scent of what you’d expect from the forest, with the added kick of caffeine for the shampoo (which also helps reduce hair loss) and green tea and spinach in the face wash (also protects and defends skin cells), using all of these together will give him (or you) a jolt every morning. ($55, ManCave)
