Valentine's Day: 8 Men's Grooming Gifts He'll Actually Use
Serious question—are we supposed to get guys gifts for Valentine's Day, and if so, what? Certainly getting him a box of Russell Stovers and a few roses would feel somewhat repetitive, depending on what he picked up for you. Picking out gifts for your main man can be somewhat of a tall order. That at-home beer brewing kit only ended up unused and collecting dust in his closet, and seriously, does he really need another tie? Grooming sets, on the other hand, are gifts that keep on giving long after the Valentine's Day feeling has dissipated. They come jam-packed with items he uses daily, but probably doesn't give much thought to, and the formulas are a nice change from the See 8 grooming gifts that won't end up forgotten below.
D.S. & Durga Mississippi Medicine Eau de Parfum
Even if he's not into fragrance, this could be the one scent to convert him. Masculine wood notes like red cedar and cypress root get some extra dimension with a spicy twist of incense.
Uppercut Deluxe Shower Kit
No shade to his current all-in-one body and face wash hybrid, but this shampoo, conditioner, and soap set takes a deconstructed (and decidedly more luxurious) attitude toward his typical shower routine.
Harry's Winston Shaving Set
This luxe shaving set comes housed in a box so sleek, you don't even have to wrap it, and for a few extra dollars, you can get his initials etched into the razor's chrome handle.
Beard Buddy Duo Kit
No-shave November came and went, and in lieu of picking up a razor, your man is now rocking a full on Grizzly Adams facial hair. Ensure it stays somewhat tame with this dynamic duo, which uses a mix of essential oils to keep his glorious beard clean and moisturized.
Proraso Vintage Collection Gino Tin
The retro packaging may draw him in, but the wonders it works on his shaving lineup will keep him coming back daily. The pre-shave cream and shave cream work in tandem to soften his hairs, allowing for a closer, smoother shave, while the cooling after-shaved balm ensures his newly-exposed skin stays hydrated.
Boy Smells Prunus Candle
Consider this a sustainable replacement to the bonsai tree he didn't mean to kill last year. Notes like yuzu and plum mingle with heady oakmoss for a slightly fruity aroma that doesn't tip too far toward saccharine.
Aesop The Intrepid Gent Grooming Kit
Ready to fly? For the guy who is always on the go, these Aesop staples come safely strapped into their stylish dopp kit, and have TSA clearance.
Tweezerman Essential Grooming Kit
He probably doesn't think he needs this kit, but trust us, he does. Jam-packed with nail clippers, tweezers, scissors, and a nail file, it's easier than ever for him to stay groomed from head to toe.
