Today is the first day of December - meaning, if you haven't done so already, it's time to get those Christmas shopping lists started! To help you out, I've sifted through the mountains of beauty and grooming products on the market.

Today and over the next few weeks, I'll be bringing you my picks of the nicest items to gift your loved ones. It's gentlemen first, so below I've outlined some of the loveliest gift sets and grooming goodies for the man in your life - no matter what his age or taste. From scent to skin health, these are products that I think he'll love.

* Weekend style columnist, broadcaster and all-round lovely person Darren Kennedy has launched his first male grooming line — Kennedy & Co. The Irish-made range includes a Purifying Peat Face Scrub, Hydrating Beard Oil, cooling Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel, Daily Moisturiser and a Matte Hair Clay. With all the goodies in the range priced under €15, they’ll make brilliant stocking fillers. Available at Dunnes Stores and pharmacies nationwide.
