Whether you are looking for skincare for men or just want to encourage your boyfriend to shave, there is a wide range of Valentine’s grooming gifts available. Surprise your significant other on Valentine’s Day with a new aftershave, aromatic soap or a beard trimming kit.
A Classic Straight Razor Kit
For the true gentleman, the perfect shave comes from a classic straight razor. Offered in designs that are reminiscent of the 1920s, these kits will typically include a straight razor, a strop, a sheath and a shaving brush. Straight razors offer a classic, old world feel and a clean shave.
The Grooming Kit for the Beard Lover
If your boyfriend or spouse has a full-fledged beard, a razor kit is probably not what they are looking for. Although he may have a beard or moustache, it is still possible to keep his facial hair well groomed. A beard grooming kit is designed for the man who has no desire to chop off his beard. Instead, these kits typically contain items like mustache wax, trimming scissors, large combs and beard oil. This allows him to have a soft, well-groomed beard while still using “manly” products.
If He Likes to Take Showers . . .
Everyone takes showers, so a useful Valentine’s gift would be a new soap or set of liquid shower gel. Since you are the one doing the purchasing, you get to choose the exact scent that you want to smell on him. If you are worried that he will not like it, you can always buy a set of shower gels so that he has more than one scent to choose from.
Soften Up With Shea or Mineral-Based Hand Cream
While men’s skin care products tend to take the backseat to the cosmetics section, there are still many different hand creams and lotions that are designed exclusively for males. Whether he spends his days lifting weights or working a physically intense job, hand cream will help to soften up his hands so that they feel smooth to the touch.
Travel in Style
Having hand creams and beard trimming kits is wonderful, but he will need something to hold them in. Go all out by purchasing your partner a leather travel bag for his grooming products. These small bags are designed to toss in a backpack or suitcase for simple, easy traveling.
You Can Never Go Wrong With Cologne
It is impossible to beat cologne as a Valentine’s Day gift. From swanky scents to woody musk, there are colognes available for every personality type. Spend some time picking out the cologne that you love. Once he gets his new gift, he will enjoy spritzing on your favourite scent for date nights and romantic evenings.
Beat Back Dry Skin and Hair
Men’s skin care products are available that can moisturize and soften his skin. If he normally has dry skin, a moisturizing lotion or cream is the perfect gift. For dry scalps, tea tree oil shampoos can help to limit dandruff. As an added bonus, tea tree oil will leave his skin pleasantly tingling after using it.
