When we think about things in life that are really hard, a few thoughts come to mind, like…
Brain surgery. That’s gotta be pretty hard.
World peace. No one’s figured that one out yet.
And finding really good gifts for men. Hardest thing ever, right?
Now, if your guy’s athletic, maybe you’re thinking of going with golf clubs. Oh, wait-he’s got those already.
Ok, so maybe he loves music…but he already subscribes to every streaming app out there.
Perhaps he’s a techie…but he already has the latest and greatest smartphone and tablet.
Or maybe he’s a super-lovable, hard-working guy who’s so busy doing life and work that he doesn’t have much spare time for hobbies, electronics or other doo-dads. What’s the best gift to give that guy?
Brain surgery isn’t looking so hard anymore, is it?
Sure, there’s nothing new under the sun, but there’s got to be something personal and unique that you can give to the man who has everything, right?
And what about the man who doesn’t have everything, but has a hard time telling you exactly what he wants?
It may seem like there aren’t any great gift ideas out there, but here’s some good news: you don’t have to keep scratching your head, trying to come up with the perfect gift for the amazing man in your life.
You can give him a gift that will keep on giving: the gift of great skincare.
I know what you’re thinking-your man isn’t into skincare all that much.
But here’s the thing: he should be, and you can help him get there. Men’s skin has unique needs, just like women’s, and it’s susceptible to the same types of damage that women guard against every day.
So, this is your chance to hit a home run. You can give him a unique, non-cookie-cutter gift that shows him how much you love and appreciate him while introducing him to something that will have incredible benefits for years to come.
What kind of benefits?
We’re talking about healthier, younger-looking, handsome skin!
Still not sure this will work for the man you love? Keep on reading…
Why Give Skincare Products as Gifts?
Let’s face it: most men don’t want to shop for skincare products. They either don’t know what to look for, don’t realize everything available to them, or they feel strange or embarrassed about buying something that they think is just for women.
When you give skincare products as gifts, it’s an easy, safe and hassle-free way for your man to start a new skincare routine if he doesn’t have one already. You’ll be taking the guesswork out of the process so that all he has to do is open the box and get started.
And if he already has a skincare regimen, you’ll have the pleasure of introducing him to new products that he (and you) can fall in love with and add to the shelf of favorites.
What Are the Best Skincare Gifts for Men?
Like women, what men need for their skin can vary according to their skin type and specific problems they may experience. The testosterone hormone that men produce can make their skin thick and oily. And daily shaving can leave their skin rough and more prone to ingrown hairs and acne.
So, they need products that can address their specific needs. While there are lots of products to pick from, a couple of items are pretty standard, and most men will need them, no matter what their skin type or condition.
Facial Cleansers and Moisturizers
Facial cleansers and moisturizers are two essential skincare products, especially if your guy is using regular bar soap or body wash on his face. Those harsh cleansers are not made for the more delicate skin on a man’s face, and they can lead to dry, irritated skin.
Our Adam Men’s Dual-Function Shaving Bar makes the perfect gift for facial skin cleansing. It’s a highly nourishing cleanser that removes grease, oil and dirt. It also exfoliates dead skin with high alpha hydroxy acid content from goat’s milk, moisturizes with cocoa butter, and hydrates with coconut, sunflower, and avocado oil.
For a great starter set, couple the Adam Men’s Dual-Function Shaving Bar with our Adonis Men’s Youth-Preserving Face Gel, which helps balance the skin and prevents oiliness and breakouts. Its formula includes nourishing essential oils that prevent wrinkles and the appearance of aging, and it doubles as an effective, cooling aftershave.
And for a head-to-toe cleanser, our Paladin Men’s All-In-One Shower Bar does triple duty as a shampoo, conditioner, and body wash-all in one bar. Not only does its French clay base draw out toxins but also the bar makes a rich lather that soothes, hydrates and conditions the skin.
Ingredients like patchouli oil, goat’s milk, shea butter and a powerful combination of coconut, flaxseed, and olive oils make this bar the perfect way to simplify your morning routine.
Beard Grooming Products
Not sure you’ve noticed, but people are going crazy over beard oils and balms right now. Why? Because the word is out about the amazing benefits of beard products over traditional moisturizers that are not formulated for beard hair, which is different from the hair on a man’s head.
If your guy sports a beard, then a beard oil or balm is a must-have. It’s key for the health of the skin under his beard, and it promotes healthy beard hair growth. Our very own Nikao Men’s Multi-Action Beard Oil works wonders to tame unruly whiskers and also works as a deep moisturizer. Not only that, but it also works as a facial oil cleanser, pre-shaving oil and night moisturizer. How’s that for multi-functional!
On Which Occasions Should I Give Skincare Gifts?
The beauty of skincare gifts is that they’re perfect for any occasion, year-round. Since skincare products should be used daily, it’s a gift that’s always appropriate and timely. And you don’t have to limit yourself to birthdays, holidays, or Father’s Day, either.
You can get creative and give him a gift anytime just to let him know how much you love and appreciate him. Maybe you want to celebrate something that seems small but has great meaning to him, or you want to encourage him and show your support during challenging times.
And when the hustle and bustle of life are wearing him down, a personal, unique skincare gift is a great way to show him he’s on your mind, which can pick up his mood and spark a little bit of romance, too.
And the best part is this: once he starts using his skincare products, he’ll begin to see improvement in the look and feel of his skin, which is something both of you will enjoy.
