V-Day debacle: what to buy your dude
It’s a well-known fact that the majority of romantically-themed events tend to cater more to females. Well I say enough of that! Ladies, it’s time to show your man just how much he means to you on these special, loved-up days – and Valentine’s Day is a great place to start. Ensure your boy feels as though this day of celebration is just as much about him as it is you and you’ll be sure to have one happy chappy on your hands! We’ve got the low-down on exactly what to spoil him with this February 14, no matter what his style…
YOUR GUY LIKES TO BE PAMPERED:
If he’s more of a pampered prince than the rugged sort, no doubt he enjoys a bit of R&R when possible. Ensure you spoil him with skin loving treats and invigorating scents to send him to a place of utter zen. We suggest the endota spa bloke gift voucher, which includes a billabong footbath and foot scrub as well as back, leg and scalp massage or buy him his own bottle of The Aromatherapy Co. Man Face & Body Balm in Vanilla Cocoa Spice, so that he can care for his skin and body in the comfort of his own castle.
YOUR GUY IS A KID AT HEART:
So he’s more into cartoons than the nightly news? That’s okay! Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate what you love about your special someone. So if you can’t get enough of his playful side, why not arm him with a fun-to-use skin product like Lush Coalface (vegan), which is an exfoliating liquorice and charcoal block-like cleanser for men? If he likes to be more playful with his fashion sense, then Ties ‘n’ Cuffs All Over Super Hero Skinny Tie or Superman Gold Cufflinks will have him well and truly looking the part.
YOUR GUY LIKES TO LOOK THE PART:
If ‘shmick’ and ‘sleek’ are practically your boy’s middle names, then you’ll want to get him something that helps him look dapper and cut his grooming time in half! The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler is a three-in-one styling tool that trims, shaves and edges hair accurately, which means it’s perfect for the guy that likes to keep manicured and looking sharp at all times. To help him in the hair styling stakes, you could gift him the Schwarzkopf Professional 3D Mension gift pack, which comes complete with hair & body shampoo, grooming fluid and moulding wax to ensure he’s always rocking a ‘do to suit his style.
YOUR GUY LIKES TO SMELL GREAT:
Is there a better gift to give than a fragrance? It’s really a two-pronged gift because you both reap the rewards. He gets the confidence that comes with smelling amazing, and you get a sweet-smelling dude you just can’t help but want to snuggle up to. Start in the shower by giving him the scrumptious Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Bodyscrub Bar. Madagascan black pepper oil and cracked peppercorns will leave him smelling sexy and spicy from top to toe. If you’re after something a bit stronger and equally intoxicating, Calvin Klein MAN is your go-to Valentine’s gift. With notes of rosemary, mandarin, bergamot and spearmint, it’s the perfect fresh, woody, masculine scent that you’ll enjoy, too!
