Uncommong gifts for husbands

1. L’Eau d’Issey Miyake Pour Homme Gift Set ($99): Make a lasting impression with a classic fragrance set that offers a surprising balance of sparkling and serene notes. With top fresh notes of two notable citruses, tangerine and yuzu, it celebrates life with a deep and vibrant scent that feels like a memory of a great summer vacation. The heart of the fragrance is more balanced and mature, with aquatic hints of water lily and the subtle warmth of spices.  The base notes, which last longer in time and build the foundation of the perfume, have the robust vetiver and sandalwood combination that make it an assertive fragrance. But this uncommon gift set is carefully created to appeal the senses: The olfactory surprise of the unexpected, the visual impact of the clean lines of a highly collectible box, and the sensory pleasure of the glass rectangle iconic bottle create a luxurioux experience to enjoy at home or on the go. Includes a 120 ml fragrance and a TSA-approved travel size of L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme.

2. Men’s Luxury SilkCut Pajama Shorts by Tani USA ($90):  This wonderful pair of shorts created by Tani USA are carefully made using the brilliant Micro Modal Air fabric, which is thinner and softer than silk (for our full review of Tani USA’s products, you can click here.) Lightweight and breathable, it feels like silk but is somewhat stronger, more resistant, and washes without concerns. Knit in Europe with a beautiful drapey and clean cut, these luxury shorts are created for comfort and style. Available in grey and navy, from the size small to XXL, these shorts feel soft like a cocoon, but perform better than other traditional materials. Tani USA is the only underwear brand that offers Micro Modal Air fabric in its pieces, and they guarantee that their SilkCut men’s luxury shorts are the most comfortable bottoms you’ll ever find for your loved ones. Why choose beatween gifting the most luxurious PJs or the best lounge pants to work from home, if you can have both in a single piece?

3. Signature Shoe Cleaning Kit by Reshoevn8r ($50.00): Does your significant other treat his sneakers as if they were their first-born children? Then we’ve found the perfect gift for him. This professional shoe cleaning kit has been designed with the most delicate leather in mind. The brand’s flagship patented kit for a reason, this carefully curated box is indeed a handy toolbox with everything he’ll ever need to do an effective deep cleaning, shoe laundry, and intensive deodorization. This gift set includes a cleaning solution big enough for 30-50 uses, a soft bristle brush, a medium bristle brush, a stiff bristle brush, a sneaker laundry bag, a pair of shoe trees and a microfiber towel. A true shoe and sneaker spa cleverly concealed in a minimalistic box, this is a great example of those uncommon gifts for husbands that they will keep using again and again and again. {This shoe kit is lovingly made in the USA.

Gentleman’s Essential Kit by House of Hilt ($229.00): Give the gift of clean beauty with this luxurious skincare kit that contains full-sized versions of the most celebrated products of the House of Hilt brand. Perfect for the gentleman in your life, the kit contains a full organic luxury beauty ritual without unnecessary frills – just high-quality ingredients that are proven to work. The Herbal Mint Cleanser is a multitasking superhero that freshens up, cleanses, and balances skin with a minty splash that is perfect to start and end a busy day. Wonderfully soothing thanks to the aloe and green tea infusion, it truthfully smells like a herb garden after a summer storm but in a manly-this-smells-great way. Works great for normal, combination, or oily skin, so it covers all skin types with a single product. The next step in the clean beauty routine is to moisturize, and the Avocado Rosehip Moisturizer does a beautiful job at that. With extra virgin cold pressed avocado oil and luxurious rosehip (which is one of the most nourishing and repairing extracts that you can find in Nature), this beautifully whipped cream also combines basil, Coenzime Q10 and parsley to balance, refresh, and intensely nourish with the perfect touch of moisture and without leaving behind a greasy or sticky feeling. The cherry on top of this beautiful set is the Illuminating Eye Cream, a product in which the proprietary Infusion System blend of the Maison Hilt has a chance to shine like no other ingredient. Paired with apricot, marshmallow and mango extracts, it deeply hydrates and nourishes the delicate eye contour leaving a dewy glow. And here is where the most luxurious part of the ritual happens: This product contains 23-carat gold to reflect light and add brightness. When I tested it on my own gentleman, he was very surprised to learn that he had been given the Midas Touch in what he felt was a very comfortable and manly beauty routine. And that is the highest compliment a skincare brand can aspire to! {This organic skincare set is lovingly made in the USA with plant-based, filler-free, and clean natural ingredients.}

The perfect gift for dad, hubby, or your father-in-law, it includes two of our favorite men’s fragrances and a hand sanitizer scented like a bar of Castile soap. Vetiver is a classic fragrance that has a warm and strong rooty, woodsy aroma that has been used in men’s perfumery for centuries. As a contrast, New Zealand is a complex fragrance that smells like the great outdoors of Down Under, with a fresh green splash that blends notes of barks, grass, snow, river, ocean, stone, and leaves. At first whiff, it feels like you are transported to the Middle Earth, the fictitious land depicted in the Lord of the Rings that was actually filmed in New Zealand. And finally, the Pure Soap hand sanitizer contains a formula approved by the FDA with 80% ethyl alcohol and a comforting, clean fragrance. A well-rounded gift at a very affordable price, this uncommon set will delight and surprise the men in your life. {These fragrances are lovingly made in the USA}

8. Basic Shave Set by Badger ($41.99): Elevate your husband’s daily routine with an all-natural alternative that makes the shaving ritual something to look forward to. This set, which is anything but basic, contains everything a man needs for a good shave, be it wet or dry. Carefully crafted with skin-hugging natural ingredients like organic seabuckthorn and rosehip extracts, the pre-shave oil warms and lubricates the skin for less friction, plumps up hairs for a close shave, and prevents razor burn. The next step is a good old lather with a natural shave soap enriched with soothing and moisturuzing ingredients. With aloe vera, coconut oil, and glycerin, it produces a light lather that leaves skin soft and clean without residue and dryness. Finally, the after shave face oil has cooling essential oils with an uplifting fragrance to kick off the day in style while it restores skin’s balance. And here’s a little dirty secret: This gift set also works wonderfully to shave legs, so you can blatantly steal your man’s accoutrements for a perfect shave every single time.
