Men’s spa, Mankind, has locations in Sydney and Melbourne, with an aim to provide professional skin care treatments and massage services geared toward guys.

They have a range of packages available that include custom body massages, face and scalp treatments, and even hand and nail maintenance.
Hailing from Sweden, the newly launched 19-69 offers a refined range of fragrances that are inspired by different eras and cultures. The Capri fragrance is fresh and citrusy, with top notes that include sweet and bitter orange, cardamom, and juniper berries. It’s inspired by the 1963 film, Le Mépri, set on the Isle of Capri.
Bellroy’s Work Folio is a lifesaver for getting all your essentials in order when you’re on the go. Available in both A4 and A5 sizes, the folio can hold a notebook, a pen, an e-reader or tablet, plus it has pockets for your phone and some cards.

At long last, Apple has released their highly anticipated smart speaker, the HomePod. Not only can this bad boy play your tunes with stellar sound quality, but it also has Siri built into it. You can ask her all your burning questions like what the weather will be tomorrow, she can read out loud your texts, or even get her to turn on the lights in your house – all through the HomePod.
Crafted from genuine leather with a natural vegetable tan finish, the Saturdays NYC Bi-Fold Wallet has been made to only improve with age. As it wears, the leather darkens, slowly developing a distinct look. Aesthetics aside, the wallet offers great functionality, with space for multiple cards and notes. It has a sleek and minimal design with a slim silhouette.
Forget the flowers and send a deliciously hoppy, yeasty, and barley bouquet instead. Brewquets is a service that sends a three-pack of Australian beers from only $35. You can opt for bigger packages too, or even go for one of their Valentine’s Day specials. These include a few beers, a glass, some snacks, a bottle opener, and a beer-themed Valentine’s Day card.
This Shave Duet by Aesop has your shaving essentials sorted; it includes their classic Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum and Post-Shave Lotion. The former product is designed to offer maximum slip, which aids your razor getting as close a shave as it can. Moreover, it soothes the skin and minimises the risk of razor burn. The Post-Shave Lotion further helps to calm the skin, helping to hydrate and keep it soft.
Sure, you look after your skin and hair, but if your nails are unkempt and grubby, it kind of brings down your whole look. The Men’s Society Manicure Kit has got your back (or your hands, rather). It includes a moisturising hand cream, stainless steel nail clippers and scissors, and two nail files. The compact kit makes keeping your talons at bay an easy job.
Make your favourite red taste even better by aerating it in the Eva Solo Decanter Carafe. As you pour the wine into the carafe, it goes through small holes in the stainless steel funnel before running down the walls of the mouth-blown glass. This process oxygenates the wine, bringing out more flavour, and allowing it to taste closer to how the wine-maker intended. Moreover, it looks cool too.
If swimming is an integral part of your fitness routine, then the Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro is an essential companion. Swim resistant in both fresh and saltwater, the wearable can track your laps, measure your strokes, and your heart rate. It can also track other activities and sports. The Gear Fit2 Pro is lightweight and features a refined design.
Whether you’re down for a staycation or a weekend out of town, QT has you covered. They have an array of Valentine’s Day packages available across their different locations, which include Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Falls Creek, Gold Coast, and Port Douglas. Each includes a stay in their luxury rooms, with other perks ranging from cocktails on arrival to a four course dinner, breakfast delivered to your room, and even a sunset sailing experience.
Reed diffusers are an easy way to ensure your place always smells nice. They look pretty cool too. Apotheke’s Charcoal Reed Diffuser is a nice choice of scent; it combines cedarwood and sandalwood, as well as hints of amber, patchouli, and smoky fire to create a unique masculine fragrance.
