My Guy


I couldn’t forget about the guys when writing about Valentine’s Day. Today I’m highlighting five fab picks any guy on your list would love – almost as much as he loves you!

A_7414_large

CULTI Home SPA Mareminerale Moisturizing After Shave Balm – $60 USD @ French Studio Imports
One of the best ways to approach Valentine’s Day for him is to upgrade the things he already needs. Shove aside those drugstore brands of shaving products and invest in something luxe, like CULTI’s amazing SPA products for him. Created in a unique scent called Mareminerale (CULTI is well-known for their candles and diffusers), he’ll smell like an aromatic blend of sea, sap, and mineral musk. The line includes a shaving cream and barber cream as well, but the after shave is a must have to keep ingrown hairs and irritation from cropping up. Plus, what woman wouldn’t love a supremely smooth face to nuzzle up against?

Banana Republic Red Sweater

Banana Republic Cotton Cashmere Vee Pullover – $85
One of my favourite ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day is to opt for a gift idea that plays at the holiday without going over the top. One easy way to hint at V-day is to gift him something red – like this cuddly v-neck sweater. Made from cotton with a kiss of cashmere for extra snuggly softness, this cozy sweater is a great reflection of the fact we’re still in the chilly winter months. And if red isn’t his colour, well, this nice wardrobe staple comes in a few other less-Valentines-esque hues.

Cococo 12 Reasons Why I Love You

12 Reasons I Love You Box – $22.50 @ Cococo Chocolatiers, owners of Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut®
Sure chocolate is a traditional gift for lucky ladies, but guys have every bit the sweet tooth in my experience. Appeal to his luxe side with this gourmand box of award-winning chocolates from Cococo Chocolatiers. Featuring 12 delectable treats with amazing flavour profiles like Mango Peppercorn and Honey Anise, this scrumptious gift is super well-priced and a great introduction to the brand for those who haven’t had the pleasure of trying it just yet. Plus, while it’s still plenty romantic, you get to skip the swoony heart business he might otherwise scoff at. The only test from here will be how much he’s willing to share with you…

Mr Beer Kit
Mr. Beer Premium Gold Edition Home Brewing Craft Beer Kit – $86.44 @ Amazon.ca
Get his dreams of starting a brewery off the ground with a little trial run. This incredible kit contains everything he’ll need to whip up two batches of beer for him and his buddies to share. After he’s mastered the basics using the included DVD / instruction manual, he can move onto crafting his own beers using a variety of hops and ingredients. You can also pick up refill kits as future gift ideas, saving you the stress of having to shop around come birthday or anniversary season.

NYR Massage Oils

Massage Oils – $29 each @ Neal’s Yard Remedies
He may want to treat you to a day at the spa, but how about treating him right back with a little bit of alone time at home? Whether he’s stuck at a desk all day, working a job that keeps him on his feet, or simply an athletic type, there’s a million and one ways that a massage will make him feel amazing. One way to up the relaxation (and sensual) factor is to add in a soothing massage oil to the mix. Neal’s Yard Remedies has several on offer, each with their own formulation of natural ingredients to suit different issues. Does he want something uplifting? Try the Orange & Geranium blend. Are his muscles aching? Try the Ginger & Juniper one. Or if he simply needs to unwind, the Soothing Massage Oil offers lavender and cypress to help him relax. Just fire up a few YouTube videos before you get started or freestyle it and help him feel good in a whole new way.

Palais des Thes

The des Amants – From $13 USD @ Palais des Thes
Valentine’s Day is for lovers – including tea lovers! This dreamy blend of looseleaf tea literally means the ‘tea of lovers’ in French, in part for its sensual notes of almond, apple, cinnamon and vanilla. Never mind the fact it’s oh so romantic, it’s also oh so delicious. Available in three varieties – herbal, green and black – these delicious teas also come in two formats; a looseleaf tin of tea and ready-to-go tea bags. Whether he sips at home or at the office, this is one warm idea of a gift he’ll truly treasure.
