With Father’s Day just around the corner, we thought it might be a good idea to discuss great gift ideas for men. Contrary to popular belief, gifts for guys isn’t limited to the categories of sports and drinking. Sure, lots of men like a gift like that, but that doesn’t mean that’s ALL they’d like. A guy may be pleasantly surprised by a not-so-typical gift. Something cool, unique, special and a little out of the box. You guessed it… a candle! There are plenty of very cool candle options that make the perfect gift for a man. Candles for men is a rapidly growing gift category, and one to seriously consider if you haven’t yet run out of household items to have “#1 Dad” printed on. Our Urban Sundry candle collection is an excellent example of unisex candles that erase the line between masculine and feminine, pairing an old school, vintage apothecary design aesthetic inspired by old New York City, and captivating fragrances so cool they’d appeal to anyone and everyone. Of course we’re biased, but it’s still true! Take for example The Suit Candle– A distinguished and sophisticated blend, with notes of vetiver, coriander, sandalwood, tobacco and cedar. It is, in our opinion, the perfect candle for a man. The absolute best part of buying the special guy in your life a candle- you get to enjoy it too!! That’s right, while he’s thinking you got him something unique and personal (which you did), you get to enjoy that gift every time it fills the air- and you better believe he’ll be lighting it up whenever you’re around to show you his appreciation. Another excellent gift option for guys is The Ember Candle, also from Urban Sundry. This candle offers comfort and warmth on the most laborious of days, with notes of cinnamon, vetiver, smoky balsam, birch tar and cedar leaf. It’s straight up sexy, and it smells like a perfect evening at home should. For the man that’s more in tune with his feminine side and appreciates a little, brace yourself, floral fragrance in his candles- The Bowery Candle will knock his socks off. It’s exotic and seductive, with intoxicating notes of sage, lavender, jasmine, musk and amber. Seriously awesome, no joke. In fact we’re pretty certain you can gift this candle to literally anyone, that’s how good it smells. Anyway, I’ll wrap this up, because I know you’re busy deciding which fragrance will be the perfect one and don’t have time to read on. When you’re gifting for a guy, don’t go with the same old gifts, or the same old thought process. Have some fun, do something different. He’ll appreciate it and you’ll get to experiment with something sensory together. So, the next time you think “What should I buy him?,” we urge you to consider an Urban Sundry candle and become someone’s favorite giver of gifts.
