Well, it looks like it’s that time of year again…Valentine’s Day. V’day is when you have to wear red, receive obnoxious teddy bears, and eat heart shaped boxes of variety chocolate. I hate giving stupid gifts, thats are essentially a waste of money. And, nothing is worse than receiving a gift you don’t really want or need. Check out this list of gift ideas to give your bae for Valentine’s Day.
Gifts For Your Man
Art of Shaving Kit
I bought this for my husband and step father 3 years ago, and they still replenish it. Art of Shaving has a line of amazing shaving products for any man in your life. The products come unscented or in three signature scents; Sandalwood is my favorite, . The great thing about Art of Shaving is that there are many price points, for you to try the product before committing to a big bottle. The kit’s start from $35 to $120 depending on the size of products.
Where to buy: Art of Shaving $30 and up
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
If your bae is like mine, he indulges in video games from time to time, and has been talking about this game since before Christmas. If your boy didn’t spend the $60 on it himself, he will love you for this gift. And maybe… even play the game with him for 30 minutes if you really want to score extra points.
