With only a few days left until Valentine’s Day, I am sure the stress levels are increasing because it gets harder and harder to find the best gifts for a gentleman. I talk from experience, after a 6 year relationship, every year I need to find new ways to surprise my boyfriend, in a manly way, but yet useful. So, what should a girl do? What should she buy? What are the gentlemen needs these days and how can we, as women, fulfill them in the best possible way?

What about Our Complete Gift Guide for men? Have you seen all the 207 products?

My first thought was: clothes! An easy gift, because for every occasion, men need clothing. But, which items? A gentleman is very picky, most of the time they want custom made things, which requires their presence, plus depending on your budget for this Valentine’s Day, it might be a very expensive present.

Then, I thought of cooking and organizing something romantic and special. But, the question popped into my mind ‘What if is he is doing the same thing for me?‘. We all know that men like to be romantic on certain occasion, this holiday, being one of them. Plus, I find it a bit sexist to cook on Valentine’s Day – it might be just me, but some girls like to be spoiled with a dinner out or something cooked by their man.

So, with less and less options available, I turned to Grooming! This was my lucky shot! The prices range from very expensive to very affordable, which is a big plus. Besides this, attention to self care has become a very important aspect in a man’s life and you could never have enough cosmetic products.

3 Valentine’s Day Hair Gifts

Now, let’s move on with something handpicked by you. Most people like to use different brands for their different needs. For example, they might love how this shampoo feels on their scalp, but hate the conditioner that comes from the same brand. In this scenario, I made things a bit easier. I chose 3 of my favourite products, some of the best, when it comes to:

haircare-valentine's day- gifts

#1. Acure Lemongrass + Argan Stem Cell Shampoo and Moisturizer 

This is perfect for someone who wants less products. Some men don’t enjoy the idea of having a shampoo and conditioner and a hair mask. All they want is one product that would do it all. For this purpose, this has a medley of sugar – and coconut – based surfactants, which clean deep without drying out the scalp, and the Acure, witch gives off a subtle lemongrass scent, plus the avocado oil which supplies moisture. All in one for just $9.07.

#2. Hair Pomade by John Masters Organics

Firstly it is organic! Yes, not only food should be organic, but everything we use should be organic! Secondly, it is made out of 11 certified organic products like: beeswax, mango butters and essential oils – only the good stuff. This pomade will add moisture and shine, plus it will define curls or tame frizzy hair. A bit more pricey, but I guess the quality says it all. $18

#3. Jason Thin to Thick Extra Volume Shampoo

Depending on your gentleman needs, if he has thin hair (which the majority of men have) this plant-based protein shampoo, will nourish the scalp and the hair. The biotin strengthens strands, and aloe vera gives extra moisture. Why not try it? It is only $10.79

3 Valentine’s Day Shaving Gifts

Since we talked about hair, let’s continue – this time with shaving!

shaving gifts for valentine's day

#1. Fair Trade & Organic Spearmint Peppermint Shaving Gel

Another organic product that promises to soothe, moisturize and glide along with superior hair lift and wetting. They extract the organic shikakai in organic sugar and organic grape juice and combine it with their unsurpassed pure-castile liquid soap base. For only $8.99 you might give it a try.

#2. Mr. Incredible by Yuli

This is a luxury shave oil, so for an extra effort, a more luxurious product for your gentleman. It promises to soothe irritated skin, disinfect cuts, provide deep hydration, restore balance, encourage healthy cell function in new skin cells, and to shield skin with an all-natural nutrient infused barrier. Skin should be left supple, and soft while face is smooth and clean.  Not bad! Price: $29

#3. Burly 3N1 by Precision Barber Club

This is a 3-in-1 kind of product, good as a beard softener, facial cleanser and shaving gel. Their motto:

For the gentlemen who celebrate their natural state whether haired or hairless.

I think it is a great idea for busy men, with just one product they can solve 3 issues, and men love solving issues, don’t they? Price: $38

3 Valentine’s Day Smell-less Gifts

It might be a weird gift, but a good deodorant might come in handy. This type of gift doesn’t necessary need to send out the wrong message. Or does it?! (just being mean)

#1. Every Man Jack Deodorant Signature Mint

A natural product that is known for absorbing wetness through cotton extract and witch hazel, helping control odor-causing bacteria, through lichen extract—a natural antibacterial agent. It also leaves you feeling fresh and clean because of the essential oils of peppermint. $6

#2. Eucalyptus Deodorant

One thing that I noticed about this deodorant and loved instantly is the alcohol and aluminum-free. Both ingredients cause a lot of problems for the skin and body and, my advice is to always find ways to avoid them. Love their statement:

Your body will function naturally and without odor!

A bit pricey, but safe for your health. $20

#3. Tea Tree & Blue Cypress Deodorant Stick

Organic and aluminum free, you might just hit the jackpot! Pricey vs quality, I would give it a 10 out of 10. Plus is a local product, California based, so you are helping the environment and small businesses if you buy these kind of products. $22.84

3 Valentine’s Day Face Care Gifts

Although men don’t like to advertise it so much, their need for face care is almost mandatory! We live in a polluted environment and everyone needs to take some precaution regarding their youth and health. (your skin is the largest organ of all, so why not showing some more caring?!)

#1. Anti-Ageing Moisturiser by BullDog

Although men start looking better once they age, that does not mean you have to deal with their wrinkles. Men need anti-aging products as much as women do! This particular product has 5 essential oils, millet seed and oak apple tannins to help deliver visibly younger looking skin in 4 weeks. Give it a try! $10.49

#2. Ursa Major Men’s Essential Face Wipes

When looking for a practical gift, this might be the one! This is like foot spa, every day! We all need it, so why not buying a more interesting gift than wine and pink hearts?! $15

#3. Botot Natural European Toothpaste

It is said to be first toothpaste in the world, invented in 1755 by Dr. Botot for King Louis XV of France. – How cool is this?!

#4. Res-Q Ointment

Another all-natural product, that revives muscles after a day of strenuous work or play, with blends of menthol, eucalyptus, corn mint and clove oils. This penetrating blend of essential oils relaxes your mind and body and prepares them for another day of adventure in the great outdoors. $7.41
