With just under a month until Valentine’s Day, it’s high time you considered what kind of a gift to buy your man. Finding out what he really wants is tricky, especially if you want to remain mysterious and not reveal your intentions until the very end. And there’s always the ultimate question – will he appreciate the time and effort you’ve put into buying something special or will he prefer getting a new pair of sneakers? Men have a delicate taste when it comes to gifts, so you have to think hard before you set your mind on a particular choice. Here are a few ideas that might help you reach a decision.
A Present in a Box
The reason why so many people love subscription boxes is quite simple – you don’t even have to leave your home to order them! Also, they’re quite cheap and offer a wide range of products. With so many different options available online at the moment, you’ll surely find something that will suit your man.
Subscription boxes cover all areas of men’s interests: from a fine selection of cookies and spicy chocolates to the best brands of whiskeys and cognacs. Or you can pick a new supply of grooming products and perfumes, which is always welcomed as a great additions to a perfect subscription box. Getting something like this on Valentine’s Day will definitely make your man appreciate your fine taste, and you’ll be able to enjoy the gift together.
Groom, Groom, Groom
If you want to give your man new grooming products, but aren’t a fan of subscription boxes, don’t worry: there are plenty of other options out there. And let’s face it – not every man enjoys purchasing these products on his own, so you might as well steer him in the right direction. Especially if his hygiene is solely based on soap and a cheap lotion!
So, what exactly to buy? Since it’s Valentine’s Day, why don’t you try something romantic and unexpected? For example, start with a chocolate-flavored body lotion that’s bound to pique his interest, and then continue with a new moisturizer, hand cream, body wash and pocket spray that will always come in handy. Alternatively, you can focus just on the shaving selection – a new wet shave gift set, beard trimmer and beard oil – or hair products that will make him look great.
Accessorize and Impress
Purchasing clothes and accessories for your man might be the hardest way to go, but the most rewarding one as well. You can’t know what kind of a watch he’ll want and if the belt you picked will agree with his style. However, if you manage to get the right present, expect not only a heart-warming smile, but also a ton of respect.
Your gift doesn’t have to cost too much, but it has to suit your man. Since you probably already know his style of clothing, it won’t be hard to find an appropriate new wallet, money clip, scarf, messenger bag or briefcase that will match it. Keep in mind that luxury mens fashion accessories have to display style, quality and elegance, so even slightly unusual choices, such as glass cufflinks, for instance, are more than appropriate.
Depending on your man’s preferences, you can always go with several other choices – a new volume of Karl Ove Knausgaard’s My Struggle or an espresso machine is something every modern man will love, especially if it comes with a selection of special Valentine’s Day toffees and a warm embrace.
