More often than not, finding the perfect holiday gift for a special guy on your list requires going the extra mile. We have all already considered (or exhausted) gifting a wallet or tie. Those choices are practical, yes, but hardly creative. A sure way to make a guy feel appreciated is to treat him to some quality me time, and there are few better ways to do that than booking a session specifically devoted to his self-care. Bonus: a carefully-selected gift may just help update his look — which is an excellent way to kick off 2020! 

Here, we’ve rounded up five grooming and skincare treatments that every man can appreciate, regardless of whether he’s a low-maintenance minimalist or the ultimate grooming guru. The best part is that they’re all on Regi®, a new booking app with a concierge that will schedule the treatments for him (and, once you’re done holiday shopping, perhaps a few for you, too).

Gentleman’s Hot Shave℠

He may look most handsome when clean-shaven, but it’s unlikely that he looks forward to dragging a razor across his face each day. The Gentleman’s Hot Shave ($55) at the Paul Labrecque® Salon at The CORE: Club® in New York City will prove the utilitarian task can be a luxurious experience. He will be pampered with hot towels and multiple product applications, and leave sporting the smoothest shave of his life. (Hopefully, he picks up some pro tips during the visit.) Upgrade the simple gift card by adding a goodie bag of grooming essentials, so he embraces his newfound appreciation for the ritual at home.

FaceGym® Workout

A visit to FaceGym is the trendy new experience that he didn’t know he needed. The open space resembles a barbershop, but you won’t find a single pair of scissors around. Instead, he can look forward to face balls, derma rollers, and microcurrent tools, which transform a traditional facial into a face workout. Book him the Gameface℠ treatment ($275) at Saks® in New York City, which will ensure his complexion looks toned, vibrant, and rested before a big event. The elaborate treatment protocol includes a radiofrequency element that practically erases signs of puffiness, whether it’s hereditary or due to a few too many whiskey neats the night before.

Editor's Note

As always, talk to your doctor before starting any new treatment.

IV Drip Therapy

While not the most indulgent treatment, intravenous therapy with a cocktail of vitamins and minerals is an excellent way to recharge and improve energy levels. The marathon runner in your life will be grateful for a session of Triathlon IV Therapy℠ ($275) at NYDG Integral Health & Wellness® in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. This particular vitamin infusion may help give him a boost before his next 26-miler.

Massage

He’d likely never book a massage for himself, so snagging him a gift certificate for one would be an excellent move. The Signature Massage 50℠ ($150) at Sisley® Spa in the Ritz-Carlton® in Marina del Rey offers a range of choices, ranging from a soothing Swedish to the muscle-melting deep tissue — or, depending on his specific needs, a tailored combination of both techniques. He’ll walk out feeling so rejuvenated after a single visit that you shouldn’t be surprised when he books a monthly standing appointment afterwards.

PowerPeel®

Even if he is already cleansing, exfoliating, and using a peptide-packed moisturizer, a professional treatment will deliver an impressive boost to his skincare regimen, especially if fine lines or post-sun hyperpigmentation are a bother. Schedule him for a PowerPeel ($80) at Skin Spa® in New York City’s Soho for a 30-minute, no downtime refresh. An application of powerful resurfacing alpha hydroxy acids resurfaces the top layer of the dermis to promote cellular turnover. This softens the appearance of expression lines, refines pores, and lightens age spots.
