Festive gifts of pulchritude

A seasonal way of telling someone to sort their face out

Grooming / beauty products are the timeless infallible gift option for that miscellaneous person in your life you find yourself obliged to give a Christmas present to. Either you have no idea who they really are (new boyfriend / girlfriend) or your sentiments are apathetic at best but you’ll be spending the big day together (every family member ever, most notably siblings).

As an attempt to assuage this burning issue, I’ve assembled an arbitrary collection of offerings – including an appropriate amount of festive facial hair – for the peripheral boys and girls in your life. Season’s greetings!
