Valentine’s Gift Ideas for Him: men-ü Grooming Sets

Written by Renate O'Connor

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching us, I mean very fast… So if you’re still on the lookout for a gift for the man in your life, you might be starting to edge into a slight panic by now. But have no fear, I’ve got you covered…

With facial hair being the hottest accessory for men back in 2015, male grooming products are ever on the rise. So why not treat your Valentine to a grooming gift set which will keep him looking and smelling great, which is always a win win situation!

If you’re looking for great quality products, without the high end price tag, men- ü is the place to find them. I’ve brought together my favourite three gift sets for under £20, which along with their Valentine’s special, would work perfectly as a gift this Sunday. 

Pro Black Shaving Brush Gift Set

After speaking to my Valentine, it became pretty clear that it’s very hard to find a decent shaving brush that doesn’t break the bank. So at just £19.95, this gift set, which comes with men- ü’s barber shop favourite Pro Black Shaving Brush and Shave Crème, is perfect if your guy is into his beard (or shaving it off). You can feel the quality in the bristles straight away and that quality doesn’t fade. The men- ü exclusive hairs are manufactured to be smooth, solid and non-absorbent – meaning they won’t be falling out all over the place!

Their Shave Crème is smooth and smells distinctively manly… I personally can never see much difference between one shaving cream and another other than smell or texture, so with that in mind, this one seems to be a winner. The tube supplied in this set could be bigger, but with the Shaving Brush aiming to allow you to use less product in the first place, you can’t really complain.

Refresh & Style (Clay) Gift Set

This set contains my favourite packaging from men- ü in the form of their Daily Refresh Shampoo and a full sized tub of their styling Clay. The aqua coloured shampoo bottle not only looks great, but smells it too! Formulated for everyday use, it will leave your/your man’s hair feeling soft and easy to manage. To tell the truth, I’ve been tempted to use it myself…

men- ü’s Clay also smells refreshingly good, with a sweet fruity scent and works perfectly to create dishevelled, care-free styles. I wouldn’t recommend buying this if the person you’re intending it for has particularly short hair, as it would be more useful for longer styles. However if your Valentine has a wavey surfer dude kind of vibe going on, he’ll be loving this and at just £14.95 your bank balance will be too.

STYLE+ Clay Gift Set

At just £11.95 this gift set is also serious value for money. Containing men- ü’s very own, custom Bamboo Socks and their staple hair styling Clay, you’ll save £4.95 buying them here rather than separately. The Bamboo Socks are cleverly designed to keep your feet cool during warm periods and toasty when it’s cold – how does that work? I’m not totally sure, but it seems to do the job just fine! Their striped design is really individual and certainly stands out. It adds a nice addition to the set without looking like an obvious I-had-no-idea-what-to-buy-you-so-I-bought-you-socks present.

men- ü have a number of similar gift sets, which also come along with Bamboo Socks, available on their website. Check them out here.

Limited Edition Valentine’s Day Gift Set

Now if you’re looking to go all out, then this Valentine’s exclusive gift set is the one for you. At £34.95 it includes the full facial/shave range so will certainly leave your loved one spoilt for choice. Each set contains a Shower Gel, Shave Cream, Healthy Facial Wash, Facial Moisturiser Lift, Matt ‘Skin Refresh’ Gel buddy tube, Matt Moisturiser buddy tube, D-Tox ‘Deep Clean’ Clay Mask buddy tube and Liquifflex buddy tube, all within a Stripes toiletry bag. I’m a big fan of the Stripes bag design and the size is perfect to keep in your bathroom cabinet or double it up as a travel bag. This is a limited edition product and well worth the money when you consider all the products it contains, so get yours before they sell out!
