With my hubby’s birthday coming up, my mind has been a wheelhouse of gift ideas that aren’t only the things on his list, but also little surprises that will help make the day extra special. Because I’m in the field of self-care, I always tend to think of small items that he can use on himself to help make him feel more polished and taken care of.
The men’s grooming market is becoming more affordable, accessible, and stylish, so there are plenty of options out there to gift the him in your life with a little something special! This year, we will be gathering with family to go swimming at the lake, and then have Mexican food for dinner with friends (thanks to Paperless Post, we sent out a hilarious invite with John wearing a sombrero and a mustache, and of course it was easy to gather RSVP responses so we can make reservations ahead of time!)
Here are some of my favorite self-care items to gift the men in my life!
My dad expects this from me every Christmas! Although I can’t quite get John to start moisturizing yet, my dad knows the value of a great daily moisturizer that is simple, effective, and scentless!
If he has a beard or stache, this is the oil to purchase! It is handmade with love and smells amazing, and it will also keep those grizzly face hairs conditioned down to the skin.
John has worked in landscaping and HVAC and regularly comes home with some rough hands, especially in the winter. This stuff is the best and the packaging is very gender neutral.
This little routine is a great way to enjoy some peace and self-care in a way that is super accessible to men. We spritz it in our room while we’re getting ready for bed, and it’s a bit more simple than lighting a candle.
Because let’s be honest, we don’t want any falcon talons waltzing around this house! A simple manicure kit like this is straightforward (no bells or whistles) but encourages self-care!
