Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and I’ve been thinking a lot about what to get for my husband. He is ridiculously hard to shop for, especially for a sentimental holiday like this one. He doesn’t care as much about grand romantic gestures, so flowers or chocolates wouldn’t have a big impact, and a totally practical gift like a shirt seems too impersonal. I’m guessing/ hoping I’m not alone in this predicament.
My solution? Grooming gifts are a fantastic combination of thoughtful and useful! Even the “man who has it all” still needs to bathe and shave, right? And who doesn’t like a little pampering? In fact, the men’s grooming market is booming as more and more men are discovering how great it feels to treat your hair, skin, nails and senses to quality products and services. So, indulge him the Valentine’s Day with one of these terrific gift ideas.
