This Hot, Successful Dude Picked Out 10 Grooming Gifts For the Men in Your Life
This holiday season, POPSUGAR Beauty tapped some of our favorite influencers, including popular brand owners, bloggers, pros, and celebrities, to share the gifts they would like to receive or give. Find more gifting inspiration here.
Michael Dubin changed the shaving game. When he launched his company, Dollar Shave Club, in 2011, it quickly became a hit with men (and even some female POPSUGAR staffers) looking for inexpensive razors. The subscription service supplies its customers with shaving goods at nice prices (starting at $1 per blade), and recently, the brand expanded to include more grooming items. (He also starred in this viral video.) Since Dubin seems to know what people want, we had to get his advice on gift giving.
"While shopping for the holidays, I'm very practical," he told us via email. "My general gifting approach is to find gifts that are personal and useful. I think it's a nice gesture to find a present that adds value and convenience, whether I'm shopping for my mom or a colleague. And if you still can't find anything last minute, a thoughtful card goes a long way."

"Dollar Shave Club's Holiday Shave Set is the perfect gift for a vendor because it keeps you top of mind every month. You hand them a fancy first box, and then they take over the subscription from there. Plus, if you get them a year of the Executive, we're throwing in our new DSC Traveler on the house."
"Buying cologne for guys is hard. It's a personal choice and it smells differently on every guy. I like the idea of giving a friend a wide variety of colognes and he can choose what he likes and what he wants to continue wearing."
"One of my friends is getting married next year, and I know his fiancé wants the wedding pictures to be perfect. The GLO Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device will help perfect those pictures."
"Unlike what most people think, you have to protect your skin year-round. DSC's Big Cloud protection line is a great stocking stuffer. The best part is it doesn't matter if they live in the Northeast or West Coast, everyone needs a Daily Face Moisturizer with Sunscreen and moisturizing lip balm."
