Pampering isn’t just for you. Give you the gift of looking and feeling good with a gift card from PRIV.

From haircuts and straight shaves to a kickboxing lesson and massage, PRIV is like Uber of looking good. “Good skin. Good hair is very important. I think guys are looking forward to better products,” says Hubert Guy, lead barber and male groomer for PRIV. There’s no better time than now for guys to make new grooming resolutions. “It’s good to evaluate your style and see what changes you can make, as far as health, your appearance, your hairstyle, the way that you dress,” says Guy. “You gotta make a conscious effort to want to make that change happen.”

3. Reshoevn8r Sneaker Cleaner System
If you’re like me, every guy you date is obsessed with sneakers. Tired of seeing him cleaning every surface of his Air Jordans with a toothbrush (or worse, your towels)? Buy him the Reshoevn8r Sneaker Cleaner System so he can care for his kicks in style. The kit features three brushes, including one made from hog’s hair, and the brand’s patented cleaner/conditioner made with coconut and jojoba oils.
4. Cooking Classes
You need a break from cooking or ordering the same pad thai every week. If you live in the Big Apple, enroll your boyfriend in a cooking class through the International Culinary Center and let him bring out his inner Iron Chef. One-day classes include homemade pizza or French macarons to more advanced dishes like ramen and sushi. Sur La Table offers plenty of classes in other states too. Bon appétit!
Starts at $195 at International Culinary Center (check individual classes for Sur La Table prices).
5. Donut Warming Coffee Mug
There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee and a warm, toasty donut to start the day. Kick start your boyfriend’s day with the donut warming coffee mug. The insulated mug insulates his cup of joe while simultaneously warming his favorite bear claw or jelly donut on top. That's multitasking!
6. Mini Drone
Boys love their toys. Everyone wants a drone and you don’t want your man to feel left out when all of his friends are playing with theirs after the holiday. Buy him a Mini Drone that won’t break the bank or annoy the life out of you. The 2-level adjustable speed flip function, performs stunts and has LED lights.
