Fortunately, self-care products are no longer limited to women because companies are seeing the value of treating men like kings too. According to Allied Market Research, men’s personal skin care market is expected to reach $166 billion by 2022. If you are wondering what to surprise him with on his birthday, or any special occasion for that matter, consider pampering him the way he deserves and take note of these self-care gift ideas.
The Skincare Products for Men
Men are not always particular when it comes to their skincare. Unfortunately, this puts them at higher risk of getting melanoma. What’s more, compared to women, men tend to be out in the field more often. This leaves them to be exposed to the elements, such as UV rays and environmental pollution, that can damage their skin.
Although men aren’t too fussy with the grooming products they are using, keep in mind that men’s skin tends to be oilier than women’s. If you’re looking for skin care products for guys in your life, those specifically designed for men’s skin are a must-have and would make a great gift.
Musky-scented candles would be a lovely gift for guys who want to freshen up the air in their man cave. Male-scented candles can also work as aromatherapy, which can help reduce their stress levels, make them feel more calm and relaxed, and even remove any unwanted scent at home.
The best part is that these candles don’t come with floral or sweet scents at all. You can choose from woodsy, musky, spice, leather, and tobacco, among others. When picking candles as self-care gifts for men, take note of particular scents he seems to like. You’d want to make sure the men in your life use the gifts you give them.
A Professional Groomer’s Kit
If your guy is conscious about his looks, whether when they are growing a mustache, beard, or just making sure that he looks his best, one of the best self-care gifts you can give him on his special day is a professional groomer’s kit. The beard-grooming kit may include mustache and beard-trimming tools, shaving cream, beard oil, and aftershave. Some kits include tools for trimming excess hair, which will come in handy for those who want to take their grooming to the next level. A groomer’s kit is usually portable, making it a handy gift, especially to men who travel often.
Men’s Spa Day
Most gift guides for men now recommend getting your man their own day of rest and relaxation. Spending a day in a spa can be a rewarding experience, especially for men. According to Viva Day Spa, taking a trip to the spa can help remove toxins in the body, balance hormone levels, and help you feel relaxed.
Many spas are using the latest technology in treatments to boost the skin and increase the delivery of topics, such as collagen, antioxidants, and more. You can choose two or more spa treatments depending on your preferences for that ultimate relaxation package that your partner will enjoy.
Electric Toothbrush with Replaceable Heads
Your adult teeth are intended to last your whole life, making oral care as crucial as hair or skin care. Men find electric toothbrushes a convenient hygiene tool for their personal care kit, solidifying them as thoughtful, practical gifts. Since this type of toothbrush comes with replaceable heads, it’ll be easier for them to maintain their teeth. Electric toothbrush often comes with several functions for brushing teeth.
Personal Massage Device
Guys train their muscles most of the time to achieve a certain physique. However, spending too much time in the gym or working out can result in sore and aching muscles. This can be easily remedied with a personal massage device that can be easily slipped inside the gym bag after each session. The massage device can help knead out the knots in the muscles after a workout to lessen the aches and pains while speeding up recovery time.
A Gift Basket of Their Favorite Booze
If the men in your life appreciate just kicking it back with their favorite drink in hand, you can’t go wrong with a custom alcohol gift basket. Whether they’re into craft beer or spirits, you can fill the basket with their favorite liquor or surprise them with ones they’ve never tasted before.
These baskets usually come loaded with other goodies too. Include food that goes great with their alcohol of choice, cigars, bar accessories, and even stuff that reflects any of their hobbies. It’s like their very own mini-vacation packed into a basket.
Calming Tea Bag Samplers
Wine may be a delicious nightcap, but it can prevent you from falling asleep. A better alternative here is to have some calming tea before bedtime. Green tea and chamomile tea are known for their calming and relaxing properties, plus they have antioxidants too. The antioxidants can help eliminate toxins in the body, contributing to your overall health.
Also, the smell of the tea and the warm, soothing feeling that drinking tea comes with can help you feel more calm and relaxed. Great tea and positive affirmations from their partner (you) are a great way to end an especially stressful day.
A Good Cup of Joe
Men love to start their day with a good cup of joe. The smell of freshly brewed coffee is sure to perk him up and boost his energy levels. If your partner loves his coffee in the morning, a great present for him is to get him a coffee subscription where fresh coffee beans will be delivered on a regular basis.
What’s great about coffee subscriptions is that you can opt for different flavors every time they deliver. Not only will your partner have his coffee in the morning, but he’ll be able to taste a variety of flavors too. He will be looking forward to waking up in the morning for that cup of great-tasting coffee for sure.
Plush Luxurious Robe
Booking a stay in a hotel can be expensive. But if you want to feel your partner pampered right at home, a plush, luxurious robe is a beautiful surprise to give him. Depending on the fabric that you’ll get, the texture can be soft or satiny, or go for terry cloth, which can absorb moisture quickly. Your partner will feel relaxed once they are wearing their favorite robe while at home, making this a great option to consider as part of his self-care routine.
Self-Love Is Manly Too
Men aren’t always open when it comes to their self-care needs, but they do need a bit of self-love every now and then. Fortunately, companies nowadays are paying attention to the male market and are already creating products that will cater to them. That said, if you are looking for a gift that will help your guy feel pampered and well-cared for, you’ll find those mentioned above among the fitting gifts to give them.
