16 Ideas for Stocking Stuffers

Mountaineer Brand Shave Oil

Lauren Hgg 2019

Shaving every single day can leave your service member’s skin rough and dry. A quality pre-shave oil and post-shave balm can help reduce razor burn and itchy skin from frequent shaving. Mountaineer Brand recognizes what it’s like to be a rugged guy who loves the outdoors and doesn’t mind getting dirty. Their pre-shave oil is made with 100% natural and essential oils, making the skin smooth and soft, giving a closer and softer shave. The post-shave balm helps soothe the skin and reduce razor burn for a fresh look without the bumps. You can get both as a set this holiday season, a great idea for stocking stuffers for the men in your life.

Granny Vicar’s Lip Balms from Mountaineer Brand are made with 100% beeswax and other natural oils like coconut oil, Vitamin E, almond oil, and castor oil to soothe, protect, and heal. This 4-pack comes with 4 balms naturally flavored with cherry, anise (Licorice flavor), spearmint, and peppermint.
