If your boyfriend’s birthday is almost around the corner, but you don’t actually know what to get him as a gift – you’re at the right place. We know that this may get very tricky, however, it’s not completely hopeless. Here’s a list of five perfect gifts your darling will love, so – enjoy!
High-quality, stylish underwear
Comfortable underwear is an absolute must-have for a modern man, simply because today’s hectic lifestyle demands high-quality fabrics that allow easy movement. If you appreciate your loved one and his comfort at the first place, getting him stylish underwear made from sustainable materials is definitely a good way to go. You can always opt for different models, colours, and patterns, depending on your darling’s personal taste. Apart from that, you can also pick underwear made of eco-materials rich in antibacterial properties!
Deluxe shaving kit
A deluxe shaving kit is an ultimate hit when it comes to male grooming – it’s particularly useful because guys simply don’t have a habit of buying such products by themselves. A combination of stainless steel shaving bowl, wooden brush, pre-shave oil, shave soap, and post-shave tonic may be just the perfect one for his birthday. Such products often come in a zippered waterproof pouch, so that he can carry them at one place wherever he goes. He’ll love this unique gift, without doubt!
Top-notch tailored swim shorts
Having in mind that Australian summer is almost around the corner, getting your boyfriend a good, tailored swim shorts may be the best decision ever! Brands such as Mosmann are coming up with versatile models that can be worn everywhere – from the café to the beach. Streamlined side pockets ensure an overall attractive look, whereas a single back pocket keeps your valuables intact. These come in a wide range of colours, from solid to bright, and all you have to do is to pick the right one for your man!
Skincare products for urban men
Similarly to the previous item, high-quality skincare products are essential for hot summers in Australia. Keeping the skin hydrated and nourished is something that has to be done no matter what, and the best way to help your man achieve that is getting him skincare products all by yourself. These include a gentle scrub for getting rid of the dead skin cells; a moisturiser that’ll replenish the moisture; and facial mask for repairing the skin after sunbathing. A product such as Thalgo Sun Repair Skin Mask will repair areas on his face damaged by the sun, with its smooth texture appropriate even for the sensitive skin type. You won’t make a mistake with this one!
Beard oil and moustache wax for taming the scruff
Every man who cares about his facial hair knows that a good beard oil is one of the most precious liquids that exists out there. Besides taming the unruly hairs, it also fights flakiness, dryness, and irritation. Beard oil will hydrate the skin underneath his scruff, while softening it and making it less sharp to the touch. Depending on the properties your beloved one needs, you’ll have to choose between different scents – tea tree, cedarwood, eucalyptus… Possibilities are infinite! On the other hand, moustache wax will help him style those whiskers in the best possible way. You’ll have to take care of two things: the ingredients included into its formula, and its strength. Of course, you want an organic product free of mineral oil and petrochemicals. As for the strength, you can choose between light, medium, strong, and extra strong. That’s it!
As you can see, there are many gift ideas for your boyfriend’s upcoming birthday, so make sure you have them in mind if you don’t have a clue. Knowing enough about his preferences and personal taste will surely do the trick – if you know what he loves and needs, you’re halfway there!
