Once a week, Birchbox’s resident Yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.

For those of you who nabbed one of the coveted Birchbox Man limited edition boxes before they sold out, you’ve got an amazing gift for your guy that will help him upgrade his grooming and lifestyle game. For everyone else, there are still great ways to put together a thoughtful and exciting present. Pairing items together is a creative option that can show someone you really care and took extra time to help them find a new solution or a fabulous routine. Here are some of my favorite pairings:
— I’ve always thought the Clarisonic Mia makes a great gift and is a perfect opportunity to introduce someone to a standout cleanser. Specifically for men, my fave is far and away Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser, but I’ve been using my Mia with pur-delicate from pur-lisse, and it’s fantastic.
— Help him jazz up his shaving routine with a full system of products. Grab the Jack Black Beard Lube and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil Free Lotion for after shaving. As for razors, I stick with my drugstore favorite (Gillette Fusion ProGlide) since it always does the job really well.
— If you want to hit him with a couple outstanding home items, grab TOCCA’s new uber Cortina Candle and the Jurlique Moisturizing Hand Santizer to keep near the kitchen sink.
