This kit, which is full of hydrating grooming essentials, is designed to give him his best shave yet. The priming oil is infused with lavender and olive oil to soften coarse hair and prep it for shaving. Aloe vera-rich shaving cream works into a thick lather to protect sensitive skin from his razor blade — especially helpful when he’s rushing through his morning routine because he hit the snooze button one too many times! And, finally, the alcohol-free restoring balm guarantees he’ll complete his regimen with a soothing, fresh finish.

Perhaps the knife that gets the most attention is the Edisto oyster knife; it has won accolades nationwide for its functionality and craftsmanship.

5. A GOOD BOOK

Henry David Thoreau – Where I Lived And What I Lived For

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 1.22.46 PM

We all entertain, to some degree, that romantic fantasy of leaving our lives behind and starting a simpler, pared-down existence in a cottage in the woods. Thoreau did just that, trading in the bustle for a life of leisure and quiet in the forest, far from any post office and the constraints and social demands that a postal system entails. This is a book for the visionaries and dreamers among us, and for the lovers who have joked about running away together to live in a tree.

6. A COSY THROW

Motor-Robe Throw Blanket With Leather Straps (Pendleton)

This classic red/black plaid Pendleton blanket is rugged yet comforting and warm. The big, bold colors give it attitude, yet laying it down can be the ultimate romantic gesture for any romantic occasion.

7. THE GIFT OF MUSIC

Apple Music Membership

Apple Music is host to a seemingly endless supply of new and old music; chances are, if you’re looking for a song, Apple has it. And as well as its vast library, the program also offers access to music videos, concert films, and live shows that have been created exclusively for this platform. But perhaps one of the best features is Apple’s ability to identify your tastes based on your personal library and listening habits, with a curated list of suggested artists and songs prepared for you each Friday.

8. UNDERWEAR

Men love to control the household, so why not give them a device that will control everything in the home with one single remote?
