What to buy a guy for Valentine’s Day

ties

When picking out a gift for that special lady in your life, there are plenty of options to choose from, whether it’s timeworn classics like flowers and candy, riskier presents like lingerie or more thoughtful items like a day at the spa. But if you’re on the other side of the relationship, buying something for your loved one on Valentine’s Day isn’t quite as difficult as some people would make you believe.

Though ties may seem like the kind of throwaway gift that people pick up at the last minute, that doesn’t make them any less useful. Even men who don’t dress up on a daily basis need a tie or two in their wardrobe, and those guys are often the ones that require the most help when it comes to choosing the right one. That’s where the folks at Ties.com come in handy, offering a variety of styles, colors and accessories that will keep you looking your best.

The company sent us over a trio of Valentine’s Day-hued neckties (read: purple and pink) that we wouldn’t normally think of buying ourselves but actually looked really great with formal and casual outfits. We also got a really cool paper-rock-scissors bow tie that forced us to search on YouTube for instructional videos on how to tie the damn thing – something that every man should learn at some point in their lives.

And the best part is, many of the site’s ties are not only budget-friendly, but they’re also incredibly well made. So what are you waiting for? Give your lady a hint by keeping the Ties.com website open on your computer for her to see, and with any luck, your wardrobe will be much improved in no time. If all else fails, you can always use the tie in the bedroom instead.

DOVE MEN + CARE Deodorant and Antiperspirant Irritation-Free Monday Contest

Dove-Men-Contest

Monday – time to spend eight hours with people you wouldn’t normally give eight seconds. Who would you kill for an Irritation-Free Monday?

Whoa, that answer came out of your mouth way too fast. Now that you made it all weird, let’s quickly switch gears to what DOVE Men + Care can do for you, within the confines of the law.

Instead of punching that guy in your office who says “TGIM” every Monday morning, get your revenge by entering the DOVE Irritation Free-Monday contest. The winner gets their choice from one of six #badass prizes (Sorry, murder for hire is not one of them, you freak.) below:

1) Installation of a luxury nap room in your office.

2) Food truck bonanza at your place of employment.

3) Personal trainer and a home gym.

4) B-ball irritation therapy, which consists of DOVE installing a full basketball court in your office parking lot.

5) $5,000 to start your own business.

6) A traffic free commute via a helicopter ride to your office.

If you still aren’t thoroughly convinced that DOVE cares about your feelings and your life, the new line of deodorant and antiperspirant proves that DOVE also cares about eliminating the funk you spread in that cube farm at your job.

Whether you like blondes (DOVE Men + Care Deodorant), prefer brunettes (DOVE Men + Care Antiperspirant) or redheads (DOVE Men + Care Clinical Protection), DOVE realizes that variety is the spice of life.

Product Review: Old Spice Re-Fresh Body Spray

smellcome-to-manhood-Old-Spice

Ever since I saw the first Old Spice “Mom Song” video, I have been praying to my non-denominational Spray God every night, asking (begging) that one of the smell technicians at Old Spice reach out to me for a product review of their new Re-Fresh Body Spray. In the meantime, I used an old bottle of Fiji shower gel to feel like I was part of the movement, to show I was “down,” i.e. the way gang members have to “do dirt” to be accepted into a particular gang or sect. And it paid off.

Old Spice reached out, but just like in gang life, they wanted something from me.  Even though I killed that drifter (needlessly, as it turned out) to peg my “real-a-meter” into the red, what they really needed from me was to recruit more members who cover their members in body spray. After all, 67% of guys who use body spray aren’t using it correctly.

I blame AXE for the cavalier spray techniques that have been developed, because after those ads, you thought the only way to apply body spray was via Spray Cloud. I seriously didn’t think “too much” existed in the body spray vernacular.

If AXE isn’t to blame, perhaps it is the lesser known GED equivalent, Bod and the famous song/tagline conveyed via sex drenched female voice, “Hot bod/I want your bod.” And who could forget that dude’s ripped abdominals? Here, check ‘em out:

Oh my Bod, that’s terrible.

Whoever you want to blame, it doesn’t change the fact that an Overspraying Epidemic exists thanks to the lack of proper training regarding spray techniques and men’s body sprays.
