When it comes to shopping for a man, life is hard. When my husband wants something, he buys it. Same with my dad & about every other male in my life. What do you get the guy who has everything? Well, if you write in the beauty field, you get them something you would like them to have.
Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani Cologne: If you haven't found the scent for your significant male other yet, seriously give this one a sniff. Maybe this is a cheater option because this brings back lots of memories of meeting my husband & getting married & such...but it is absolutely wonderful. With notes of both woody & marine notes all tied up in a masculine bottle, this is a favorite. Even my "non-foofoo" husband likes this & has worn it for years.
Pinch Provisions Minimercency Kit for Him: Want something useful? This mini kit for men is perfection. It is small enough to contain the necessities & contains items you can replace after you use them as well. From a breath freshner to stain remover to floss this little kit has your guy covered. At only $13, this is the perfect gift for any occasion. Plus, look at how cute that packaging it! A sturdy metal tin with a mustache? Yes please.
Jack Black Lip Balms: If you're unfamiliar with Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balms...well that needs to be fixed immediately. I love these suckers, made for a man or not, & so do many other beauty bloggers. I have multiple scents but the one pictured are Shea Butter & Vitamin E, Grapefruit & Ginger, &Natural Mint & Shea Butter. None of them are too girly smelling, looking, or tasting. Don't worry about chapped lips, this will totally cure it.
Trigger Massage Candle for Him: One of my personal favorite gifts for newlyweds are massage candles & they're always a great idea for Valentine's Day as well. With notes of cedar, vanilla, & masculine musks this is a great masculine scent that will fill up the room when burned then you use the warmed, melted wax as a massage oil. For every man who thought he didn't like candles, this should change his mind. You can find this one from Perfumeland. They also have loads of other types of scents & this candle in a spray form.
Jack Black Turbo Body Bar: I love this bar of soap. I don't think I've ever stated that on this blog. I'm not a bar soap fan. This one holds together incredibly well, exfoliates, & leaves a great natural scent. It smells a bit like shea butter & tea tree oil? The lava rock is the exfoliant & it kicks other bars out of the water without being too rough. Exfoliating, moisturizing, & it lasts a nice long time? Get in my shower.
Ghirardelli Chocolates: If nothing seems to quite fit, go with a winner. Ghirardelli is some of the best & my house takes chocolate pretty seriously. Dark chocolate is usually my flavor of choice. Dark Chocolate with Strawberry Filling? Yeah that doesn't last long with my husband. Not into dark chocolate or even milk chocolate? Try the Ghirardelli Sublime White Vanilla Dream All Natural Chocolate which is made with real vanilla beans. It is ridiculously good.
So there you have it, some awesome options for Valentine's Day gifts for your guy! What are you getting the guys in your life?
