VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT GUIDE: SPOTLIGHT ON BILLY JEALOUSY
Valentine’s Day can be a tricky holiday when it comes to buying gifts. What type of gift is appropriate? How much should you spend? What message are you sending with that gift? Should you be buying anything at all?
Flowers are done to death, jewellery might be overdoing it, and there’s only so much candy you can eat. Nothing says “I care about you enough to get you a gift, so here’s something cool you’ll actually use” quite like a shaving cream or incredible hand lotion. Low-key, off kilter gifts are definitely the best option, especially if you don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea (remember that trickiness I mentioned?). We have plenty of gift ideas, no matter who your valentine is: man, woman, bearded, or non-bearded alike.
Everything on this list is brought to you by Billy Jealousy, a super rad company from Dallas, Texas. These guys are the epitome of being effortlessly cool, with their ability to combine a playful edginess with their product’s efficacy. Billy Jealousy is a brand that really gets their customers. Their Cosmeceutical products have been scientifically designed to not only cleanse your skin, but also help to improve your skin’s tone, texture and overall health. Now who can argue with that? Especially when receiving it as a gift for Valentine’s Day.
