What can I put in a male beauty advent?

Dh really wants one for his birthday but they're all aimed at women so I'm going to make one.
So far I've thought of face mask, moisturiser, facial scrub, nice body wash but I'm struggling to think of how to fill up 25 days.

Does anyone have any ideas or even links to products you can recommend? He has oily/normal skin and is baldy so hair care is a no go!

What about some little fancy teabags (I know detox is bull but maybe a detox-y sort of one?)?
Beard care?
An old-fashioned safety razor for the 25th day (the kid you replace the razor blades)?
Body scrub?
Foot cream?
Eye mask/treatment?

Aesop, Dr Hauschka, Murdock London all seem like good places to start if you want to spend £££

Oh those are good ideas! I could get 2 different aftershaves to bulk it out.

I do want some top end stuff too but have no idea where to start with that, will have a look at those brands.

Nail clippers?

A nice facial SPF if he spends time outdoors? Mine is fair skinned, red haired golfer so really appreciates a good quality spf. He likes the Zelens one but it is £££, especially if you are buying as part of a larger hamper/advent.

What a lovely idea, my DP would also appreciate this, he is partial to a pamper session using my things! 25 things is a lot though, maybe get one of those packs of mini aftershaves and split them up to bulk it out? Or a mini nail kit, my dad always carries one shame DP bites his nails and they are all disgusting and in no need of a pair of clippers

Foot mask from bodycare, coconut ones are good
Eye mask, the gel ones you keep in fridge and reuse
Temple spa minis
Rituals minis
Molton brown minis
Loccitane minis
Good razor
Shaving brush
Mens ted baker candle

For the cheaper products you could get the 3 for 2 in superdrug on the minis

Thanks everyone, some really good ideas here! I'm happy to spend a bit more that's why I'm starting it now, so I can spread the cost. He will love it smile

Those mini bottles of molten brown shower gel, hand wash and hand cream are always nice.
