    The whole issue of men's grooming is a tricky subject. On one hand, what better occasion than the holidays to treat the dude in your life to a truly fancy cologne or skin-care set? On the other hand, make the wrong selection, and your guy may have unpleasant flashbacks to that time he got deodorant and Barbasol from his mom.

    All things considered, it's worth taking the time to put some thought into a beauty or grooming gift for your men — be they S.O., friend, brother, or father. For instance, if your man never touches cologne, this may not be the time to force that strong eau-de-Clooney on him. And, be careful to avoid any gifts that hint that his habits need changing (i.e., if he's a die-hard beard wearer, that luxe shaving set may cause more strife than it's worth). Just kidding, that's never happened to us. Ahem.

    Thankfully, there are more man-specific grooming gifts than ever — and whether your guy is a backpacking outdoorsy type or a man that prefers a good single-malt by the fire, there's a skin-care treat, fragrance, or grooming tool that's perfect for him. To get you started, we've rounded up 13 stylish but practical items that the guys on our list would love.
