The key to getting your guy a great gift is all about getting them something that they would never buy themselves, but secretly want to. Thus is the case with this gift. This is a perfect gift if you’re just newly dating someone because it’s simple, but just the slightest bit sexy. And lip balm? What guy couldn’t use that? Best of all, it comes in a variety of flavors to please every palate.

$20 and under: H&M Toiletry Bag ($19.95 on sale now)

Every man needs a dopp kit, otherwise known as a toiletry bag. And, let’s be honest, they’re not gonna buy it for themselves. So you need to. It’s easy, it’s simple it’s stylish, it’s cheap and – best of all – we know they need it!

$50 and under: Working Man’s Hygiene Kit ($50.00)

This all-natural set is everything your favorite guy needs. Created by a mechanic who let his dirty, damaged paws drive his inspiration to design products for dudes, the manly salves, scrubs and balms included are specially made to meet the needs of the working man. From soothing sore feet, to healing cracked lips and knuckles, to buffing the dickens out of dry skin, this kit goes beyond simple cleansers to get the job done. And it’s all made here in the USA. Find your local male grooming salon or spa, using Yelp or Google. You’ll be glad you did.

$100 and under: Man Cave spa gift certificate ($50-$100)

ManCave

Ok. You think your manly man might not like this, but I assure you he would. After all, these aren’t the male spas of yesterday. I’m talking chic black leather furniture, single malt in their hand, a shave and a warm oil manicure, all at the same time.  No man is returning that gift.

$200 and under: Clarisonic Mia 3 (in Black) Skin Cleansing System ($199)

Get your guy the gift that keeps on giving for years! This guy deeply cleans skin, without irritating the skin. And with the cool, masculine design, it’s not something he’ll be embarrassed to leave out on his bathroom counter on poker night.

Moll’s Bag of Tricks: No matter what gift you give, give it with love, but, DON’T give it with expectations or instructions. Men like to figure things out on their own so don’t give a gift and push them into using it. They’ll use it when they’re good and ready. But I know they will love any of these picks.
