When it comes to quirky last-minute gifts, you'd be hard pressed to find a more out-of-the-curve but so-on-trend offering than a facial hair-themed coloring book. The "Beard and Mustache Coloring Book" is the brainchild of two-time world champion beardsman Jack Passion , a man who who has managed over the last seven years to leverage a legendary face mane into a full-blown beard-based business that includes T-shirts, a how-to manual called "The Facial Hair Handbook," and a starring role on IFC's docu-comedy TV series "Whisker Wars," the second season of which started airing Nov. 23. L.A.-based Passion shared his ideas with an artist who rendered the final 22 black-and-white images that appear in the 48-page all-ages coloring book.

The beard has been validated. After a critically praised freshman season, "Homeland" scored nine Emmy nominations that resulted in six wins, including outstanding drama series actor for Damian Lewis and actress for Claire Danes. Yet, Mandy Patinkin's turn as CIA Middle East division chief Saul Berenson (and Carrie's shoulder to cry those tortured tears on) was blackballed, failing to land a nomination in the supporting actor in a drama category. What a difference a season makes.

A couple of weeks ago, David Beckham was holding forth in the Galaxy locker room after a victory over the Chicago Fire when the conversation got around to the beard he was sporting. Was it a disguise to allow him to slip into Ukraine unnoticed with the rest of England's national team? "No," Beckham said. "I just got lazy. It'll probably be gone tomorrow." Hair today, gone tomorrow? No way. By the next day, it wasn't gone. The beard accompanied Beckham to Europe for England's World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus.

One of the most noticeable men's trends at Sunday night's 2013 Golden Globes was the abundance of facial hair, from presenter Jeremy Renner's barely there smudge of a 'stache to Bill Murray's full-walrus mustache with connected sideburns. Some of the other bearded and mustachioed men in attendance were producers Grant Heslov and Judd Apatow, actors Jason Statham and Will Ferrell and, if you include Bradley Cooper's scruffy visage, all five nominees for lead actor in a comedy or musical film, with facial fuzz gracing the grizzled chins of Ewan McGregor, Jack Black, Bill Murray and winner Hugh Jackman.

Despite it being smack in the middle of mustache-focused Movember, when it comes to social media the 'stache is getting beaten by the beard - and by more than a whisker. That's according to the data-mining folks at at Kontera , who apparently have been tracking this very thing.
