Aside from roses, chocolates and a romantic dinner, what better presents do you plan to give? Whether you are wooing someone or you’ve already won his/heart, you’ll find the best Valentines gift ideas for your loved one to indulge in through this article.
Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for the One You Love
Finding the best gifts to give could be as simple as stepping out from the norms and looking for the less conventional Valentines gift ideas that both of you can cherish. Here’s a list that will take you out of the box to create a one-of-a-kind experience with your loved one:
VALENTINE’S GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM
#1. AT HOME FACIAL
If you are thinking of unique gifts for a boyfriend, husband or a special someone, why not give him a facial at home. Most men would give less priority to a trip to the spa especially if they’d rather stay home. Wouldn’t it be nice if you’ll start a ritual for him? Encourage him to maintain a clean and well-kept appearance by treating him to a relaxing at home facial. Of course, you can make it more special by doing it for him and using luxurious facial care products that are specially formulated for men.
Gently exfoliate his skin with Triumph & Disaster Rock & Roll Suicide Face Scrub. It removes dead cells and cleans out the dirt that’s stuck in the pores to leave the skin healthy and balanced. With volcanic ash and green clay as its key ingredients, your loved-one will never really find the need to go out to experience the luxury offered in an expensive facial spa!
#2. ANTI-AGEING TREAT
Love should last forever, and so does his youthful look. Do signs of ageing start to appear and he doesn’t seem to care about it? Then it’s your turn to give him a treat. As ageing comes as a natural part of life, there are also factors that may cause one to look older than his real age. With an anti-ageing treat, you can revive his youthful glow and give him the boost of confidence that he needs. Not to mention the special touch that comes with your gift!
Men have unique needs and you must choose an anti ageing product that can protect, repair and restore the firmness of the skin. The Absolution Anti-Ageing Day Cream for Men is organically formulated to address the skin needs of men, minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the skin. With an easy to apply formulation, you can help him with his anti-ageing ritual without a fuss!
#3. CLEAN SHAVE
Researchers from the University of South Wales revealed that stubble really isn’t sexy–and you can relay the message to your man by giving him a clean shave. Let him in on a morning ritual to help him stay free of annoying stubble. Make the routine easy for him with the best shave cream.
For a great shaving experience, Triumph & Disaster Old Fashioned Shave Cream keeps the nasties away. It has fresh citrus tones that will remind you of a Turkish barbershop.

A bad hair day for women can get in the way of a lovely day! Prevent this by giving him a luxurious hair treatment that she will enjoy and include in her daily bathing ritual.
