12 Shower Upgrades That Actually Make Great Gifts

Racking your brain to come up with the perfect gift idea can have you scrolling for hours on end, desperate to find the singular item that jumps off the page. We hate to be the voice of reason, but here’s a little not-so-secret-tip: Some of the best gifts combine function with a touch of unexpected luxury. As in, items he probably wouldn’t think to splurge on for himself, but that’ll no doubt earn a, “You shouldn’t have!” upon unwrapping. Think tech-y showerheads that boast advanced spray technology, silky beard oils that repair while boosting shine, or a futuristic towel warmer that’s 100% unnecessary but also apt to become the item he can’t seem to live without once it’s been introduced to the bathroom.

Maybe your end-goal this season is to simply to pamper him or lend a touch of indulgence to his routine. Or maybe you’re hoping to subtly encourage him to swap out the 3-in-1 shampoo for something a bit more sophisticated Whatever the case, these high-use, high-luxury self-care gift ideas will help him level up his shower game while turning his space into the relaxing oasis he didn’t know he needed.
