A quality beard may look effortless, but there’s a lot of maintenance that goes into it. You need balms to hydrate it, oils to make it lush, and a top-notch trimmer to keep it all under control. If you know someone who treats their beard like a member of the family, here are some thoughtful gifts you can pick up for them.

1. Mountaineer Beard Wash; $10


Any beard-care routine starts with a solid wash, and this one from Mountaineer is the only one anyone will ever need. Available in five different scents—timber, pine tar, lime & sage, citrus & spice, and coal—this wash cleans and hydrates beards without stripping them of the oils they need to stay thick and lush. If you’re unsure of which scent to go for, opt for timber, which touts a pleasant piney aroma.

2. Honest Amish Beard Balm; $11

This beard balm has a 4.4-star rating on Amazon and is definitely on the affordable side compared to the competition. The balm itself is designed to melt in a person’s hands, which makes it easier to apply.

3. Wahl Beard Trimmer; $71


Don’t let your loved one be that guy with the grossly unkempt beard of Cast Away proportions. Instead, gently encourage them to get things under control with this trimmer from Wahl. There are 12 different guide comb attachments, meaning it can help with a light touch-up or a full-on hatchet job. There are also four different attachment heads designed to get rid of nose and ear hair, because, well, that kind of stuff happens to the best of us.

4. Beard Bib; $20

The Beard Bib, as seen on Shark Tank, can help prevent your giftee's bathroom from turning into a hairy mess every time they shave. The apron simply attaches around the back of the neck and sticks onto the bathroom mirror in front, thanks to a pair of suction cups. The bib will catch the loose hairs as a person shaves, which can easily be collected and tossed in the trash.

5. Viking Revolution Post-Shave Balm; $10

This post-shave balm fights against razor burn and other irritations, helping skin stay soft and hydrated rather than bumpy and inflamed.

6. Duke Cannon Beard Oil; $24

Duke Cannon/Amazon

Beard oil is more of a luxury than a necessity, but that’s what gifts are all about. This oil from Duke Cannon separates itself from the pack because it smells like Buffalo Trace bourbon and is full of vitamins and other ingredients to leave facial hair (and the skin underneath it) soft and moisturized.

7. Duke Cannon Shave set; $20

Duke Cannon/Amazon

This shave set from Duke Cannon is for anyone on your list that turns shaving into a spa experience. The company’s Hot Shave gel actually warms up on a person’s face when it’s applied, helping to soften and lubricate the skin as the razor does its work. The after-shave balm, on the other hand, comes in with a cooling sensation to calm the skin down afterwards.

8. Beard; $14

Chronicle Books, Amazon

If you know someone who could just spend hours ogling the most ostentatious beards on the planet, go for this portrait collection of famed facial hair. This book features photographs taken by Matthew Rainwaters during the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championships in Anchorage, Alaska. And in addition to the pics, there are essays written by the competitors, all of whom believe a face is a canvas for great—if not fuzzy—art.
