1. Valentine’s Gifts for the Well-Groomed Outdoorsman
If your man likes to get outside he will love these pants and hoodie from Aktiv style. The Magne 2.0 pants are durable yet comfortable and ideal for cold-weather hikes.
Pair them with the active warm baselayer hoodie that features a built-in mask (how COVID-friendly is that!) and hand covers making it the perfect top for a chilly day. Also, as an added bonus, the pant pockets are the perfect size to carry along the Stanley flask filled with your favorite libation.
This flask is lightweight yet highly insulated and durable for wherever your adventures take you. Finally, we know there is nothing like a good shower after a day on the trails – so we included a versatile set of grooming products to keep your hair smelling fresh, skin moisturized, and beard soft.

First, get his skin clean and refreshed like never before with the new Luna 3 Men Foreo skin and beard cleanser. This must-have device gets your skin refreshed and glowing in just 60 seconds.

3. Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him: Beachy Casual
We know it’s winter, but if your Valentine’s Day plans include some fun-in-the-sun this gift set is for you. Get dressed with this versatile swim and shirt combo from Kenny Flowers.
Their fun and colorful patterns will help your man stand out and let him easily go from outdoor to indoor activities. You can’t have a day at the beach without cocktails – so we are loving this Red Devil cocktail set from Shaker & Spoon. Their inventive and easy to follow recipes make it easy to try new drinks like this spicy, citrus, mezcal bev.
After a day in the sun it’s critical to get your skin back in shape, so first treat your hair with Masami’s shampoo, conditioner, and shine serum infused with Japanese ocean botanicals – then scrub off the sunscreen with Bodhi Beverly Hills’ exfoliating cleanser, and finally treat your skin with Meebak’s Cica Mask and Vitamin C serum.
