Shopping for gifts for bald men can be tricky. Getting the right gift depends firstly on the preferences of the baldie in question, and also on your relationship with them.

That second point is important. Buying bald head gifts is potentially a minefield if you don’t know the person well. Will they take it as a thoughtful gesture, or assume you’re poking fun at them?

If you’re unsure, it’s safer to buy socks. But if the bald head in question belongs to your partner or you’re otherwise close with them, there’s every chance it will be well-received.

If you don’t have a bald head yourself, it can be tricky to know what to buy. You might be unsure of their routine, how sensitive their skin is, whether they like a shiny bald head or a matte look… there are lots of things to consider.

Below I’ve listed some of the best gifts for bald men to help you navigate this tricky decision.

Best Gifts for Bald Men

These are the picks of the bunch. They’re all a relatively safe bet for any bald man, in that they’re not specific to one specific type of hygiene or maintenance routine.

C3 Head Wash

  • Designed precisely for face and scalp
  • Non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic fragrance-free formula
  • pH balanced to support healthy skin on the face and scalp

When I started to shave my head I made the mistake of not using the right tools for the job.

Lots of bald guys just use soap or face wash, but this can lead to a dry scalp and flaking skin due to the dehydrating properties of soap.

Instead, bald men should be using a specialist head and scalp product like C3 Head Wash to keep their bald heads in the best possible condition.

Skull Shaver Pitbull Platinum PRO

  • Wet & dry shaving
  • 90 seconds and done
  • Flexible shaving heads
  • Cordless use up to 90 mins

The Pitbull series are amazing products, specifically designed for bald heads.

They offer the closest shave available other than a razor. If the baldie in your life would rather avoid the shaving cuts that inevitably come when reaching a blade around the back of their own head, this piece of kit is well worth the investment.

The Pitbull is a 4D rotary shaver that gives an impressively close shave, but crucially it can be used for wet or dry shaving and is much quieter than other electric razors.

For this reason, it won the very prestigious Bald & Happy award for best electric shaver for head shaving.

I’ve recommended the Platinum model purely for the extra battery life, but if you can keep on top of charging and you don’t mind missing the optional extras like the travel case, go for the cheaper Pitbull Silver. There are also some more budget-friendly Skull Shaver substitutes.

Ray-Ban RB4165 Justin Sunglasses + Vision Group Accessories Bundle

  • The world’s most iconic eyewear brand
  • 100% UVA, UVB, UVC protection
  • Bundle includes: cloth pouch for glasses + lens cleaner spray + lens cleaning cloth + glasses repair kit

These bad boys are the ideal shades to pair with a shaved head. Due to the round shape of most bald heads, it’s important to choose sunglasses that aren’t too rounded themselves.

The key to choosing sunglasses or glasses is to choose the right frames for your face shape. To find out more, read this article on how to choose glasses for bald men and this one on the best bald men’s sunglasses.

Ray-Ban is a timelessly cool brand and this particular selection looks good on any bald man.

Gifts for Bald Men Under $10

Bee Bald Smooth Plus Daily Moisturizer w/SPF 30

  • Tones, hydrates and moisturizes your scalp
  • Protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays
  • Helps reduce shine and control oily secretions
  • Can also be used on the face to smooth fine lines, wrinkles & dry patches

If your bald-headed friend is wet-shaving, they’ll need to replenish the natural moisture that shaving strips away.

Bee Bald Smooth Plus with SPF30 came out on top in my run-down of the best moisturizers for bald heads. The SPF is an added bonus to tan their bald head safely and avoid sunburn on those long days outdoors.

Clubman Woltra Nick Relief Styptic Pencil (Pack of 2)

  • Stops bleeding quickly
  • Works on minor nicks and deeper cuts
  • No more TP squares!

Any shaving cut is a pain, but the scalp seems to bleed like no other area of the body.

A styptic pencil works by hardening or coagulating the surface of a wound. This makes it the ideal gift for the more careless wet-shaving bald man in your life.

Smooth AF Bald Head Exfoliate Scrub

The Bald Brothers

  • 20% off with code HAPPY20
  • Gently removes dirt & dead skin
  • Ideal pre-shave treatment
  • Doubles as scalp & face cleanser

I use The Bald Brothers’ Smooth AF scrub to maintain my melon, and if you click the link above and use the code HAPPY20 at checkout, you’ll get 20% off.

I use Smooth AF because it’s a great all-round scrub, but there are other options. For example, there are more suitable products if your friend has sensitive skin, or if you’re working to a budget. You can read about them all in this guide to the best bald head exfoliators.

Exfoliating before wet shaving will help your bald friend get a closer shave. Scrubbing removes the barrier of dead skin and dirt that otherwise gets between the scalp and the razor. This ensures that the cut happens at the closest point on each hair, and reduces the friction that can lead to razor burn.

If your bald friend isn’t already exfoliating, or regularly suffers from razor burn, this stuff will make a really thoughtful gift.

HeadBlade HeadLube Glossy Aftershave Moisturizer Lotion for Men (5 oz)

  • Leaves head shiny and grease-free
  • Specially formulated for your scalp
  • Contains nourishing tea tree oil
  • Perfume and dye-free

This is a great gift idea for someone who has sensitive skin after shaving. Post-shave recovery is important, and you could really make someone’s life easier with this stuff.

HeadLube contains some great natural ingredients like shea butter and tea tree oil. This means it works in harmony with the scalp rather than the damage caused by harsh chemicals found in other products.

It also leaves a wonderful glossy finish for those who like their bald head shiny.

hims Blur Stick Concealer for Men

  • Erase acne, dark spots, razor burn
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty-free
  • Paraben-free

This is a great gift for anyone with an inconsistent skin tone on their bald head. This could be caused by blemishes like freckles, age spots, or birthmarks. 

It’s probably one for special occasions rather than everyday use, but if you know a baldie who is self-conscious about scalp discoloration, this could be the solution for them.

JiBen Fogless Shower Mirror

  • Power-locking suction cup
  • 360-degree rotating adjustable arm
  • No warm up time needed – splash or wipe with warm soapy water once

I would absolutely love it if someone bought this for me! I shave a shaving mirror in the shower but I went cheap and now I have to have the shower head on hand to clear the fog every few seconds while shaving.

If you know someone who wet shaves their head, this will make the perfect gift to brighten up their morning shave routine. It comes with a suction cup for easy mounting and rotates 360 degrees, so no more awkward neck positioning!

Amazon Essentials Men’s Trapper Hat with Faux Fur

  • Super-warm for winter days
  • Snap adjuster allows you to firmly secure your hat and helps preserves heat
  • Machine washable

A good trapper hat is my favorite thing to wear for a cold day walking in the woods with the dogs. It’s so warm and comfortable that I really don’t care if my kids laugh at the floppy ears.

This winter winner will cover their whole head, which your bald friend will thank you for in deepest, darkest winter. They’ll even have warm ears!

HeadBlade HeadLube Matte Moisturizer Lotion for Men (5 oz)

  • Paraben, perfume, and dye-free
  • Made with nourishing aloe and tea tree oil
  • Leaves a matte finish

Ideal for the bald gent who prefers to avoid a shiny bald head, this moisturizer is a scalp care essential.

According to HeadBlade, this lotion ‘is Non-Comedogenic, which is a long and fancy word for it doesn’t clog your pores, keeping your head healthy & hydrated – without the acne.’

Gifts for Bald Men Under $50

The Art of Shaving Lavender Shaving Cream

  • Protects against razor burn and irritation
  • Clinically tested for sensitive skin
  • Creates a rich & foamy lather to improve razor glide

This is the perfect gift for someone who wants only the best in scalp care.

Yes, you can use any old shaving cream to shave your head, but you get what you pay for. With this premium cream, your bald friend can say goodbye to razor burn and it’s also clinically tested to be kind on sensitive skin.

HeadBlade Moto Head Shaving Razor

  • Lightweight & easy to use
  • Dual-axis suspension for closeness
  • Bargain price point

The HeadBlade designs are a great innovation in head shaving. A regular razor is often awkward, especially when shaving the back of the head. 

HeadBlade’s products are designed to offer the perfect grip, which avoids shaving cuts and gives a closer shave all over the head. The added bonus of extra blades is a nice touch for a gift, too.

Wahl Professional Classic White Peanut Hair and Beard Clipper/Trimmer Model #8685

  • Salon-quality clippers
  • Designed to deliver the sharp performance that experts demand
  • Ideal for beard trimming or hair cutting
  • Comes with all accessories and attachments required

Some great branding going on here. Wahl’s Peanut not only looks unlike any other clipper on the market, but it’s great value given the performance it offers. Bonus tip: make sure you know how to maintain and clean clippers to extend their lifespan.
