Yogis anywhere on the gender spectrum need a quality mat. Manduka is among the best in the business, and their Pro Lite model is one of their most popular mats for its lightweight, easy portability and superior sweat-wicking power.
Vitamins might not sound like a romantic gift until you think about it. You’re telling your guy, “I love you and want you to have a longer, healthier life with me.” Source of Life Gold contains oodles of plant-based nutrients to fill in any micronutrient gaps in your beau’s diet.
Did you know that failing to floss contributes to heart disease and Alzheimer’s, but only a third of Americans do so daily as they should? Why do most people skip the string? It’s the pain factor.

Do you, like Kesha, love your guy’s beard? If so, help him keep it in kissable shape with this Manscaped premium trimmer as a Valentine’s gift for him. It works wet or dry and has an adjustable blade to take him from 5 o’clock shadow to full ZZ Top.
Gym memberships create an ongoing expense. Working out at home is convenient with the right equipment, and resistance bands offer heavy-duty strength training without taking up the space of plates and barbells. This colorful set combines for a total resistance of 300 pounds, plenty of oomph for his bench press.
Mindfulness is the practice the modern world needs. Learning its secrets can bring you greater inner peace and extend your healing beyond yourself to humanity as a whole. Let Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh inspire your man’s journey.
What makes kombucha a form of self-care? It’s the “Mother” within — the signature probiotic blend that produces the brew while nurturing your intestinal microbiome. This kit sets your man off on his home brewing journey with all the tools he needs to concoct a healthier way to sit back, sip and unwind.
Trail mix isn’t just for hiking, although these tiny sacks are the perfect addition to your man’s back frame. They’re also a nutritious snack by themselves or a healthy addition to salads — use a bag instead of croutons to add crunch and complexity. Of course, heading out on the trail is the perfect way for you to practice self-care with your man.
Hiking is fabulous self-care. It provides, solo, mindful time in a gorgeous environment or a fun form of team exercise when done with a partner. However, your man’s feet can get achy after a few miles — give them relief with these Timberland boots. They’re also waterproof and have a fully gusseted tongue to keep out debris.
Juicing is a fabulous way for your man to practice self-care by increasing his fruit and vegetable intake. A green smoothie to start your day gets you going with phytonutrients and filling fiber, and the right blender smooths it to the perfect consistency. NutriBullet has an excellent brand reputation for products that last.
If your man has limited space for a home gym, a weight bench is the one device he’ll appreciate. He can pair it with bands and dumbbells to get a complete workout at home while watching TV. This Flybird model folds into a tiny rectangle, letting him store it in a hall closet between sweat sessions.
Bowflex switched their focus from marketing to improving product quality, and it shows. Each dumbbell adjusts from five to 52 pounds, providing enough weight to hit everything from presses to overhead triceps extensions. The compact design won’t take up much space, tucking easily into a corner when he’s not using this Valentine’s gift for him.
Pull-ups might be the ultimate upper-body exercise, and they aren’t easy. Machines can take up considerable floor space, but fellas with high doorways can hang this model anytime they want a workout. You don’t need any screws or tools to maneuver it into place, and it doubles as a pushup intensifier.
Self-care can sometimes mean indulging in luxurious comfort. This Ross Michael’s hooded Sherpa robe keeps your guy cozy on the coldest winter days. It also feels heavenly to slide into — don’t be surprised if it becomes your favorite thing to borrow.
You can’t talk every guy into a pedicure, but their tootsies still deserve love. Give your guy’s feet a break with this heated massager. It’s especially good for cashiers, stock clerks or anyone who works long hours on their dogs.
While long nails may be a TikTok trend, there’s a reason they don’t let nurses have them. They can harbor far more bacteria than your hands, which is why biting them isn’t a wise choice. Instead, let your man groom his paws the healthy way with this professional kit.
Healthy cooking is self-care, and it just got easier. This all-in-one digital air fryer, rotisserie, convection oven and food dehydrator whisks excess fat away from meals and precludes the need to add extra oil. It’s perfect for everything from making homemade jerky to preparing a holiday dinner for two.
Does your guy love the planet? This iLOLOA tea disc essentials set features a unique diffuser that eliminates the need for bags. That’s right — he doesn’t have to check for plastic in the packaging or compost them to feel good about indulging in his favorite beverage.
You might not think of first aid as self-care until you’re stranded in the wilderness. Hiking and camping are fabulous, healthy activities, but they carry inherent risks. Here’s a Valentine’s gift for him that embraces your man’s rugged side and desire to be a hero by teaching him the ropes of outdoor survival.
Camping may be the ultimate self-care activity you can enjoy together, growing your bond. The fresh air and outdoors improve your mood and boost your immunity while the adventure teaches you new skills, building your sense of agency.
