Is it time for a new look? Consider the goatee, but don't just stick to the basics:
"The Goatee can create a look of mystery or distinction. It can also do a great job of hiding the double chin (well, maybe just from the front)! Regardless, it's a beard style that carries a commanding tone because it brings attention to the mouth, especially when speaking. And for men that like to be heard and noticed, this is a great beard style choice."
The folks over at Beardly have a great selection of beard shirts for holiday giving (or to add to your own beard shirt collection). And while they have a big variety to choose from, here's our pick for a gift for that bearded guy in your life: The Beard Measuring Shirt.
What do you get for that moustachioed man who has everything? How about a limited edition wooden moustache comb?
The Offerman Woodshop offers their official mustache comb, hand carved out of exotic and local woods, with a non-toxic & 'stache friendly finish. The combs are roughly 3-1/2" x 4", and are available here: Offerman Moustache Comb. (Plus, if you want it customized with woodburned initials, it's just $25 more.)

They make your daily shave a breeze, and they can also cut through a week's worth of stubble like a hot knife through butter.
