Gift Ideas For The Sense Of Smell
The gift of smell is one that can be a blessing or a curse. We all know what it’s like to come across an unpleasant odor; no fun at all. Men tend to let things get pretty smelly sometimes, so I’ve found several gifts that will help this problem. Here are a couple of gifts that will be pleasing to your man’s nose (and also your own)!
Ask most women what their weakness is in a man, and a lot of them will tell you they love when a man smells good. I can attest to this fact! Nothing is more attractive than a man that smells amazing. Smelling good will not only be great for your own nose, but it will help your man feel more attractive and confident! This particular scent is woodsy and will make your man feel extra manly whenever he puts it on. With this classic Polo scent, you’ll be wanting to snuggle your man even more than you already do.
Another great idea as a gift for smell is one that not only smells great but will also help your man health-wise! Oil diffusers are hugely popular right now, and they are for a great reason. Essential oils are an all natural and help in numerous ways. Buy your man a diffuser and some oils to get him started. Not only does this diffuser work great, but it is also stylish and goes well in any room. Different oils can be used to help him get a good night’s sleep, be energized or even help with a headache. Your man and his body will thank you for this fun and practical gift!
Sometimes, a man’s office or man cave can have a bit of musk to it. A great way to not only make his office smell good but to add some subtle decor is to buy him a candle wax warmer! These help a room smell great, and they reduce fire hazard by not using an open flame. It’s a great way to help his office smell clean without trying too hard. There are multiple styles to choose from so you can make it specific to your man’s style! With so many scents to choose from, your man can use this gift for years to come without getting tired of it.
It’s a myth that men don’t appreciate a well-scented room- they do too! Try adding a powerful essential oil diffuser to the den, bathroom, or bedroom to give him a mood boost, or even set the mood.
Why not try a classic, tried-and-true gift like cologne? It will instantly make him feel sexier when you cuddle up close to him. Calvin Klein colognes come in a wide variety of popular scents to match the seasons.
Did you know scent is tied to memory? You can create memories for nights to come with the soft and sensual aromas of lavender and almond. This oil is also hypoallergenic so that it won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin.
Guys like to feel pampered, especially when it helps them feel clean and sexy. Trying out a luxurious deodorant will make you crave him all day long, and boosts his ego along the way.
Gifts For The Sense Of Taste
It’s common knowledge that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach, so here are some fun gift ideas that are sure to peak his interest! There are different types of gifts for taste; it’s easy to get him something he can eat or drink, but feel free to mix it up by getting him something to use FOR his food or drink. Use these suggestions to find something fun to get your man’s mouthwatering!
What doesn’t a man love a good beer? Most men enjoy the taste of a cold one on any given day, but what man wouldn’t enjoy one he concocted himself? Yes, you read that right! Get your man this craft beer making kit and have him creating his own brew in no time. With several editions to choose from, there should be something for every man out there. No worries if your man is a newbie; this kit is specifically catered to beginners in the trade!
While most men love to knock back a cold beer, a lot of men tend to lean for something a bit classier. What better way to give something extra class than with a monogrammed decanter set?! Made of solid glass, this decanter also comes with four 8 oz. glasses. It can be engraved with your man’s last name and last name initial. If you’re looking for a gift to give his man cave something to indicate he’s into the finer things in life, look no further!
A lot of women may enjoy cooking in the kitchen, but most men consider themselves to be the king of the grill! Get the man in your life this grilling rotisserie set that will allow him to use whatever grill he already owns in a brand new way. It is stainless steel and equipped with a pretty powerful motor. This kit will help your man roast a chicken to perfection and have it all ready to eat in no time!
Men and beer go together like women and wine! Give your crafty guy a taste of crafting his brews at home, and you’ll find he’s ready to entertain all the time. I love this PicoBrew model because he can brew many of his favorite, hard-to-find craft beers.
Nothing is more masculine than a black cup of joe in the morning, but that shouldn’t mean skimping on good quality espresso. Appeal to your man’s taste for quality with his espresso machine. He can wake up to a smooth, steaming cappuccino anytime he wants.
Some men love that smoky, oaky flavor in their liquor. Giving him an Oak Barrel provides him that flavor in his favorite drinks, whether it be whiskey or rum. We like this model of Golden Oak Barrel because the 2-liter chamber lets you age more at a time.
There’s something to be said for the old adage, ‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.’ You can’t go wrong with a basket of some fantastic smoked sausages and cheeses: tons of flavor, and he can take them fishing, hiking, or to poker night!
Gifts For The Sense Of Hearing
Last, but certainly not least, are gifts related to the sense of hearing. Ears are what helps us hear the voices of the ones we love, sounds we enjoy and music. Why not bless your man with a gift that’ll give his ears a break from the boring sounds from his office or the loud noises of construction that seems always to be nearby?
Is your man into what might be considered “old-fashioned” or even a little “hipster”? What better present than a vintage record player? For the true audiophile, try giving him a vintage turntable. He can play all of his favorite records in the most authentic style. This model is known for having an ultra-clear tone. Not only is it old-fashioned, but it still comes with a modern twist. Besides just playing records, it also has Bluetooth and AUX cord capabilities. Available in four different colors, you can’t go wrong with this gift if he’s a music lover! Add in a couple of his favorite records, and you have a unique gift that he will love.
Does your sweetie like his peace and quiet? Look no further! With these noise-canceling headphones, your man can feel all alone even if he is in a crowded area. These headphones do it all; they are great for music, tv or just to feel like he’s in a quiet spot. These are very lightweight and comparable to more expensive brands. Give your honey the gift of total silence so he can work or just hang out in peace!
We all want our men to be on time, so the best way to help is buying your man a watch he wants to listen to! Get your sweetie a beautiful looking watch and notice he spends way more “time” listening to it and getting places! He will begin enjoying being on time when he hears this watch tick. With a watch as comfortable and stylish as this one, he will never want to take it off! Made with Japanese quartz and sapphire crystal glass, you can’t beat the price for this quality. After you buy him this, you’ll have to start leaving earlier just to beat him to the destination.
If your man is a cinephile, he is sure to appreciate the real cinematic experience with a set of home theater speakers. While this can be an expensive buy, we loved this set from Goldwood. They were even easy to install and make him happy to cuddle up any movie night.
For the guy who is always on the go, send his favorite tunes around with him. Wireless earbuds keep his hands free when he’s at work or the gym, but his head full of his favorite hits. The best part is that they pair with any Bluetooth device, for maximum versatility.
