Let's face it. There is something about bearded men that we just want to love. But guys with beards need love and affection too.
Let's make it all about the man (and his beard) you love this Valentine's Day! So, what can you give your bearded man? Not to worry if you're stumped; we've got just what you need to create a magical day with the perfect Valentine's gift.
Know your bearded men's preferences
When it comes to shopping for the perfect Valentine's gift for your bearded man, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind:
- Consider his personal style and taste. Is he more of a clean-cut guy, or does he prefer a more rugged look?
- Think about what he likes to do in his free time. Is he into outdoor adventure activities, or does he prefer to relax at home with a good book?
- Consider what products he uses to care for his beard.
Once you have a feel for his preferences, you can move on to the main course.
The bearded man Valentine's gift guide
When it comes to beard-related gifts, there are endless choices that can make things even more difficult. Luckily, we've broken it down to make selecting his Valentine's gift a bit easier.
A beard kit
You'll have to take stock of what he has and use before you choose a beard grooming or care kit. There are hundreds to choose from, including trimmers, shampoos, conditioners, oils, balms, a boar bristle brush, or scissors - everything he needs to keep his facial hair healthy and looking great.
A stylish beard trimmer
A beard trimmer is the ideal Valentine's gift if your man prefers a well-groomed look. Choose one with multiple length settings, so he can create any style he desires. Most of these also include beard scissors for the odd strays he needs to tame.
Mat's Beard Bar® Pro Version 2.0
Although this gift will also benefit you and your relationship, your guy will love Mat's Beard Bar® Pro Version 2.0. This is the tool to clean up the sink once he's groomed his beard. The sponge is antimicrobial and super absorbent, and flexible enough to clean the whole sink. Just wet, wipe, and rinse. That's it; the sink is hairless. There are also combo packs available. Like all hygiene products, Mat's Beard Bar® will need to be replaced after a while.
Beard combs or brushes
If your man is serious about his beard, he needs the right tools to help style and groom it. A set of high-quality combs or brushes are essential for keeping his beard looking neat and tidy. A wide-toothed comb will work best to avoid damaging delicate hair follicles.
Beard shampoo and conditioner
A good quality beard shampoo will help to keep the beard clean and free of any build-up or bacteria. Beard shampoos will leave his beard healthy, but if his beard is longer than a 5 o'clock shadow, he'll need beard conditioner for hydrated and soft hair.
Another great option for keeping the beard looking its best is beard balm. This product can help tame unruly hairs, as well as add some extra hydration and nourishment. It's perfect for him to style and shape his beard.
You might not think that this is "manly", but trust us, both him and his skin will love you the more for it. Packed with natural oils and ingredients, his skin will be soft and supple. Maybe get him a more masculine scent, like Appalachian Pine.
Gift sorted; it's time for dessert.
Date night ideas for your bearded man
If you're looking to make Valentine's Day extra special for your bearded man, consider these hints and tips for date night. With a little planning, you can ensure that he has a night to remember.
Depending on his personal style, you can start his day with a bearded man pamper treatment at a spa or a visit to his barber to neaten up his whiskers.
Remember to plan your date well in advance, Valentine's Day is busy, and even if you don't celebrate your man on the day, things still get booked up. If he's a foodie, book a table at a fancy restaurant. For the more active types, plan something active like rock climbing or hiking. And for the adventurous souls out there, consider tickets to a show or concert. If you want to keep it more intimate and cost-effective, plan something special for him at home, where you can still celebrate him.
Then is the gift. Think about when you want to give it to him and how. Maybe write a note about what you love about him and his beard, and why this is the gift you want to give him.
Finally, just enjoy the time spent with the bearded man of your heart.
