2. Meet the Bulldog

Bulldog, the UK’s first and largest natural skincare brand for men, has put together a new Expert Skincare Christmas gift set.

Exclusively available at Boots, this gift consists of a reusable and collectable tin combined with four natural skincare products from the award-winning range: Original Moisturiser, Original After Shave Balm, Original Face Wash and Original Face Scrub.

3. Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash

No self-respecting Christmas gift guide for men would be without something to do with cars. So here is the eco option - waterless technology for car cleaning.

The concept of waterless car washing originated in Australia several years ago. Auto Express Magazine had the products evaluated by an independent laboratory and awarded Eco Touch the accolade of 5 Star Best Buy 2012

All of the products are non-toxic, biodegradable, phosphate free and packaged in 100% recyclable material.

Price: from £6 to £19.99

4. Recycled Bottle Hoody

Supersoft heavyweight 350gsm PET/3 ply cotton fleece zip hoody made from 30 recycled plastic bottles.

On average in the UK each household uses 500 plastic bottles, of which just 130 are recycled. An estimated 13 billion plastic bottles are disposed of in the UK annually and many of these end up in the sea, taking between 450-1000 years to fully break down. So by recycling bottles we can make a big difference to the amount of plastic waste that could end up on our beaches.
