Bella Bargain: A Guy Gift That Just Looks Expensive

Can we be honest for a second? The average dude is probably fine, just fine, with using the Colgate shave cream and Axe body spray that he's been using since peach fuzz first appeared on his face. Same goes for my dad — he's an Old Spice man through and through. But sometimes it's nice to switch things up for the gents and give them something a little more upscale.

Enter Every Man Jack, a San Francisco-based line of men's grooming goodies. The line is free of dyes, phthalates, parabens, and sodium lauryl sulfate. Though the sleekly designed packaging makes you think you'd find this at Barneys, it's available at Target. If you're looking for a great gift but you're sticking to a tight budget, you can't go wrong with this minty holiday shave kit; it contains a full-sized face wash, shave cream, and face lotion — plus a travel pouch with mini versions of shampoo, body wash, soap, and lip balm. All of this for just $10. No, that's not missing a zero. Ten bucks!
