Building a Dopp
Perusing the travel section one day looking for a few essentials I couldn't help but notice how much more decadent the dopp kits for men were compared to the little makeup bags for women. Still, going DIY and building one from scratch brings things to gift level and dopps have personally served me very well in that department! Here are some favorite finds to tuck inside:
If it was left to one line and one line only it would have to be Molton Brown. Almost every scent I've experienced from them smells incredible on men so a kit fully of their products would do nicely, included here is their creamy shampoo and toning lotion, but a few others to consider include Tom's of Maine natural deodorant in woodspice. So good. Then Anthony Longistics sun stick for the eyes and lips. Little tins of Burt's Bees work great too and get double duty on chapped hands. A little bottle of cologne, this one here is Dirty English by Juicy Couture. Some shaving necessities and shaving / natural bees soap. Finally a really unique cloth by Mission that, when wet, flicked and snapped, magically becomes cold and stays that way to cool you right down. Still trying to wrap my mind around that one.

As you pointed out, this can become a travel kit. Men love a bit of pampering on the road even if they won't admit it. Thanks again for posting!
