Presents They’ll Love: Ideas for Guys, Gals, and Kids, too

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and now is the perfect time to look at ideas for your significant other, a Galentine’s Day celebration, or even the little ones in your life. Show all your loved ones how much you care with a personalized beauty basket, a bundle of self-care supplies, or something they’ve been eyeing but haven’t gotten for themselves.

GIFTS FOR HER

If you’re looking for ideas to get your girlfriend, wife, mom, sister, or bestie, we’ve got you covered! Whether she’s always creating new makeup looks, loves a good skincare routine, adores the newest and hottest fragrances, or flaunts her locks are her favorite feature, you can mix and match with all different price points and popularity.

MAKEUP

If your lovely lady is a makeup lover, a fresh lipstick, new eyeshadow palette, fun highlighter, or unique mascara can make their day. Skin-matching products like concealers and foundations are a bit tricky when it comes to getting an accurate color match, but cute and fun makeup—especially with Valentine’s Day-themed packaging—is a perfect pick.

GIFTS FOR HIM

If you’re looking for ideas to surprise your boyfriend, husband, dad, brother, or bestie, we’ve got you covered! No matter if your guy is a fragrance fanatic and personal grooming guru or he’s gotten into skincare and stylish shaving, you can mix and match to get him a gift he’ll love year after year.

FRAGRANCES

Colognes are a classic gift your significant other will adore almost as much as you. There are a lot of brand and scent options out there for men, but if he doesn’t already have a signature scent as an everyday go-to, we have some of the most popular masculine fragrances on the market today.

Christian Dior’s Sauvage Eau de Parfum is an earthy, woody fragrance inspired by the desert at dusk—cooling as lavish rays of the setting sun burn through the sky. Fresh, zesty, and slightly spicy bergamot melds with sweet, smoky notes of veiling vanilla absolute, enticing amber, and sensual nutmeg to create a perfume that is fresh and warm, promoting a peaceful balance that radiates with calm confidence.

Like walking along a windy beach, Jo Malone London’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne blends a top note of ambrette seeds, a heart of fresh and crisp sea salt, and a base of woody and earthy sage. It evokes images of waves breaking, fresh air speckled with sea spray, and the mineral scent of rugged cliffs to create a lively and sophisticated scent.

Versace’s Eros Eau de Toilette is a fragrance specially designed for passionate and confident men. Top notes of Italian lemon, mandarin, mint oil, and candied apple create a sensual perfume, while an infusion of patchouli, sage, vanilla, and sandalwood adds a spicy, masculine tone. This bold fragrance is elegantly presented in a turquoise and gold bottle with a depiction of the Greek God of Love.

The rich, fruity aroma of Creed’s Aventus Fragrance combines citrus and woody notes for a harmony that inspires a life always looking forward. This unpredictable perfume opens with the echoing juicy and crisp notes of bergamot, blackcurrant leaves, apple, and pineapple. Increasing in warmth, the composition is amplified in the heart with pink berries, birch, patchouli, and jasmine, down to musk, oakmoss, ambergris, and vanilla in the base for a comprehensive impression of confidence and sophisticated energy.

Love Potions

PERSONAL CARE

FACE AND BODY

Skincare is just as important for men as it is for ladies, but many of them don’t take the time to find products that are best for them. Get them started on their skincare journey with products designed for men and their skin’s needs.

SK-II’s Men Facial Treatment Essence takes the original Facial Treatment Essence and specially formulates it for men’s skin needs. This anti-aging, hydrating essence creates crystal-clear skin by minimizing dark spots and wrinkles, refining the skin’s texture, and firming the face. Over 90% of this essence is formulated with PITERA, an SK-II exclusive ingredient that contains more than 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and organic acids. Skin feels more supple after the first use and is completely transformed in 28 days, with even better anti-aging effects over several years of use.

Comfort his post-shave skin with Shiseido Men’s Hydrating Lotion, which minimizes razor burns and combats redness and roughness. This water-fresh lotion not only helps keep the skin hydrating, but it also fights against environmental stress for a smooth, supple, and healthy complexion.

Help his signature scent last even longer by pairing it with a matching deodorant. Yves Saint Laurent’s Y Deodorant Stick features notes of bergamot, sage, and ginger for sharp and juicy freshness, as well as a soft base of balsam fir, cedarwood, and marine ambergris. It creates a citrusy, woody, and earthy aroma that exudes refined and chic masculinity.

Sunscreen is the most important step in any skincare routine, and guys are no exception. Clinique For Men’s Broad Spectrum SPF 21 Moisturizer protects skin from the sun’s UV rays while also giving it a boost of hydration. This lightweight moisturizer will also leave the skin feeling smooth while improving its condition over time.

HAIR

From shampoos and conditioners made for men to style-setting pomades and gels, if you guy goes gaga for haircare, you have to take a peek here.

A perfect pick for guys just getting into styling their own hair is American Crew’s Forming Cream, which will soften and hydrate his locks for a firm yet moveable hold and thicker, fuller appearance. This is a light styling cream that works with all hair types and washes away with ease while shampooing

Guys don’t always “get” why using conditioners or keeping their hair hydrated is important. That’s why Oribe’s Cleansing Creme For Moisture & Control gently removes buildup, dirt, and impurities from the scalp without stripping away natural oils. It also defends against oxidative stress, photo-aging, and the deterioration of natural keratin. With the refreshing scent of mint and the moisturizing power of coconut oil, this frizz-reducing and balance-improving shampoo leaves locks soft, smooth, and tangle-free to boot.

FACIAL HAIR

If your guy has a gorgeous beard, marvelous mustache, or wants to start taking better care of his facial hair, there are plenty of gift ideas you can snag to satiate.

Help control and shape his ‘stache with the Copper Johns Beard Company Strong Hold Mustache Wax. This all-natural formula creates a strong hold that lasts hours, and the metal containers travel easily in a gym bag or pocket for on-the-go styling or touch-ups. Beeswax, pine rosin, and sea minerals help give the hair hold as shea butter, jojoba oil, and cocoa butter keep it soft and hydrated.

Ziziner’s Beard Oil soothes dry, itchy skin and stimulates age-fighting collagen. Vitamins A, B, C, and E work together to hydrate the skin and minimize signs of aging without clogging the pores or congesting the skin. This unscented oil also helps fight razor bumps and burns by protecting the skin and boosting cell turnover.

SETS

Of course, you can always grab him a set of his favorite scent, a go-to brand, or something new he can take with him while traveling or venturing into a new personal care category.

SHAVING

If your Valentine likes to rock a stache, beard, or clean-shaven face, a new trimmer, clipper, or shaving solution can be the perfect present.

THE YOUNG & YOUNG AT HEART

While Valentine’s Day is traditionally all about our significant others, it’s always nice to get something extra special for the little ones in our lives to celebrate the holiday of love. Luckily, there are also a lot of gift ideas and options for every age.

BRANDS

If you want to look at all the kid-friendly options we offer, looking at some fun brands is a great place to start.

For younger children, check out The SmurfsDreamWorksDisneyFairy TalesHannah MontanaMarmol & SonMattelMarvel, and Nickelodeon. For slightly older kids, try One DirectionWarner BrosLip SmackerDC Comics, or Blossom Beauty.

HAIR

It can be a challenge to get kids to take proper care of their hair, but with a little love and some fun supplies, they’re sure to take on the tangles. A cute, fun, or eccentric hair accessory can make their day, too.

NAILS

Nothing can be more fun than creative artistry and self-expression, and painting and decorating nails is a perfect activity for young ones and adults alike, especially when done together.

SCENTS

While we traditionally think of perfumes, EDTs, and body sprays as mature gifts for adults alone, there are fragrances available designed for children, too. They’ll feel so grown up whenever they apply their own personal scent.

FASHION

There are some amazing high-end designers your budding fashionista or hypebeast would rock day after day, and there are some absolutely adorable options out there as well.
