The holiday season is finally upon us, and we want to make gift buying a tad easier for you this year. If you have a redhead man in your life, these 10 gifts are sure to bring him holiday cheer! I have a redheaded husband and know he would love any/all of the items!
Whether you’re opting for shopping online or in brick and mortar stores, the list is here for you:
1. Grooming Products
My redheaded husband loves using my skincare products, which is great, except they are MINE! So I’ve put some research into finding him some manly skincare options that will be soothing for his sensitive Irish skin and will keep him away from my products. Harry’s Post-Shave Mist is made with natural ingredients and is alcohol-free, so it feels like it was created for redhead men with sensitive skin who need relief from post-shave irritation.
2. Fuego Box
If the man in your life is anything like mine, then he loves his hot sauce! The Fuego Box is a hot sauce of the month club that focuses on finding the tastiest craft and small-batch hot sauces. They offer 3 subscription options depending on how many bottles of sauce you’d like shipped to your door every month. Just like we love seeing our H2BAR Subscription Box arrive every month, your man will love this!
3. Silk Face Mask
Face masks have become the norm this year. But, wearing these masks every day is not always gentle on redheads’ sensitive skin. Some dermatologists claim an easy remedy for skin-irritation is to make the switch to a silk mask. What a great stocking stuffer for a redhead man this year!
4. DAGSMEJAN Pajamas
In our family, there is always one guaranteed gift under the tree — a new pair of pajamas! We know redheads are more sensitive to temperature, and for some men, this can mean an uncomfortable night’s sleep as their temperature fluctuates. DAGSMEJAN specializes in temperature regulating sleepwear, utilizing various fabrics such as Merino wool that is both a natural defense against the cold, and also evaporates moisture to cool you down if you overheat in the night. Pair it with a set of pillows for the ultimate relaxing gift.
5. Beard Oil
Beards are still having their moment and probably aren’t going away anytime soon. So, if your man is one of the many men doing a red beard, this is the perfect gift for him. This Beardbrand Blank Slate Beard Oil is made of all-natural ingredients and is as close to scentless as you can get, so it is perfect for redheaded men with sensitive skin.
Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean our shades should be collecting dust. Research shows that people with lighter eye colors like blue or green are more sensitive to sunlight, which means many redheads should be wearing sunglasses year-round! Warby Parker is a great place to shop for sunglasses online. They not only create styles that are on-trend, but they also allow you to try on as many shades as you would like for free before buying them. This means you can select your top 5 favorite shades, have them delivered to your door, then let him try them all before choosing his favorite.
7. Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle
This is a great gift for the man who loves literature, cuisine, or cocktail hour! Tim Federle has written a hilariously clever cocktail recipe book full of literary puns that you don’t have to be an English major to enjoy. Celebrate your favorite literary redheads by creating drinks like Lord of the Mai Tais, The Rye in the Catcher, Berry Potter, and Huckleberry Sin. Or, if your man is more a fan of the cinema, he’ll love Federle’s Gone with the Gin! Gift this book with his favorite spirit, and you’ve created the perfect pairing.
8. Board Games
With various lockdowns/quarantines happening around the world, board games have had a real resurgence. Why not introduce a different element of fun to your nights-in by adding a new board game to the agenda? The current addiction in our house is Settlers of Catan, but for this holiday why not go old-school and bring back some games with classic redheaded characters like Clue and Guess Who?
9. Ancestry DNA Test
Redheads are basically genetic unicorns! The MC1R gene mutation makes us very rare and our genetic history potentially super interesting. If your redhead is the type of guy who loves flipping through old family photos and hearing stories from his grandparents, gift him a DNA test so he can learn even more about his rare genetic roots.
10. Lumos Bike Helmet
If your man rides anything with wheels, then make sure he is protecting his most valuable asset — that head of red hair! Lumos is a smart bike helmet that integrates brake lights, turn signals, and the health app on your smartphone all in one super sleek package. It’s durable, waterproof, and will keep your redhead safe out on the road.
Happy holidays + Rock it like a Redhead!
