Guys, I had the best Mother’s Day. It was the day of “me” – I was the boss of my own time, I didn’t have any grown-up jobs, and I ate delicious (keto friendly) meals until I eventually passed out, just shy of 9:45 p.m.
My fabulous hubby did whatever it took to give me the easy going, laid back Sunday it was. And now, my job (as Wife extraordinaire) is to hook him up with a Father’s Day Gift that doesn’t suck.
I’ve already got an experiential something up my sleeve that he’s gonna LOVE. But, coming up with my man’s gift was not easy. Gift giving after years of being united in glorious matrimony and parenthood is pretty much a nightmare. I mean, how many branded barbecue spatulas can one guy get in a lifetime?
My favorite gifts in these years of early motherhood are the kind that make me feel good. The kinda stuff that reminds me I’m still an actual human being even though I spent most of the day pretending to be a dragon ballerina. Sure, I love a cute box with a bow as much as the next girl, but the stuff that makes me feel good about myself? That’s what dreams are made of.
So, why do guys have to get stuck with monogrammed beer steins and ties shaped like fish for Father’s Day? I’m not knockin’ the “gifts for Dad” aisle at Target, but maybe, just maybe, they could use a little self-care too.

hims is a personal wellness brand for guys. And, here’s why they’re so cool: They provide solutions to problems all guys face but seldom do anything about. Hair. Sex. Skin.
I don’t know about you, but the last time I was around a bunch of guys, they were definitely not talking about hair loss, skin care, or (gasp) problems with their performance between the sheets.
You’re more likely to find your man tucked away in the bathroom wearing your silk robe and soy infused socks than you are to find him chit-chatting with the guys about that time he couldn’t get it up.
Guys know self-care is awesome. They SO wanna test out your new coconut scrub – and they will. But they won’t talk about it.
It’s like the first rule of fight club. You do not talk about fight club…or in this case, you do not talk about how soft your skin feels after using your wife’s coconut scrub.
WHY HIMS MAKES AN AWESOME FATHER’S DAY GIFT
Guys don’t talk about their issues in open forums, because men’s health issues aren’t often talked about in open forums. Girls can talk about their periods and cervical mucus (don’t act like you haven’t), but guys? They don’t. So if they do, they’re gonna feel totally weird.
hims wants guys to realize that they are SO not weird for having certain problems (like hair loss, skin care and erectile dysfunction). What’s weird (in their opinion…and probably mine too if we’re on the honesty train) is NOT doing anything about it.
With hims, guys get access to prescription solutions backed by science for hair loss, sexual wellness, and skincare. After subscribing, he’s connected with a licensed doc who recommends a killer treatment plan for his particular issue(s). The products are shipped right to his door. No embarrassing trips to the doctor. Total. Privacy.
A few facts:
By age of 35, 66% of men will have some degree of hair loss – hims provides a prescription solution clinically proven to prevent hair loss in men. And, believe it or not, 40% of men by age 40 struggle from not being able to get and maintain an erection. The prescription solution hims provides is clinically proven to treat ED.
And, they don’t stop there. They believe in healthy, moisturized skin…for dudes. And they’ve got products for that too.
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST
hims prescription and non-prescription products are all under $50 bucks. That’s 50-80% compared to traditional retail and script prices. And also, its way more top-secret than hitting up the pharmacy counter in your neighborhood.
SHARE THIS WITH YOUR GUY, PRONTO
hims is already and will continue to be a life-saver for so many people.
And, bonus, it will make a great Father’s Day gift for the right guy – that is, the kind of guy who would welcome a nudge in the right direction from his most favorite lady.
For those guys who would cringe at a gift like this, you could always make him a fab dinner and casually mention that one time you read this really cool post, by this fantastically, gorgeous and hilariously magical blogger. I probably took that too far. Just go with it.
You gotta mention it to him casually. It just might be the thing that puts him back in charge of his man parts (all of them…ALL OF THEM).
Cue, 1970’s porn music.
