But maybe you’re burnt out on the same old movies and you’re looking for something fresh and new (or to rediscover a romantic movie you haven’t seen for a while).

I totally get it, and that’s why I’m here to help!

Here are 54 of our favorite romantic movies. We’ve watched many of these over and over and hope you enjoy them too!LOVE! Great list of awesome romantic movies to share with your husband or wife! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, at home date nights or any time you want to watch a romantic movie with your spouse! Are your favorites here too?

My Disclaimer…

P.S. There’s a wide range of movies represented here (everything from classics to musicals to rom-coms), and each family has their own standard for what is and is not appropriate to watch.

Although these movies are fairly clean, they are still intended for adult viewing (and not kids). Some movies may have content you could potentially find questionable (such as Titanic, Jerry Maguire, 50 First Dates, The Holiday, Top Gun, The Wedding Singer, When Harry Met Sally, Moulin Rouge, or others).

If you aren’t familiar with a particular movie title, please learn more about it before you watch it. You may look at these titles and decide that they’re outside the boundaries of what you’d deem appropriate; or perhaps you plan to skip through certain scenes (like we do); or perhaps it’s no big deal to you at all.

Either way, please don’t send me hate mail regarding the movie selections here since it’s impossible to choose a list of movies that every couple would deem appropriate. 🙂 Thank you. 🙂

Easy Father’s Day Gift! DIY Beard Oil for Your Guy

Got a guy with a beard? I’ve got the perfect Father’s Day gift for him!

Beards and mustaches are all the rage right now, but do you know what isn’t?

Itchy, prickly facial hair that makes snuggling like cuddling up with a brillo pad. Not cool.

But thankfully all that manly scruffiness can be easily tamed with one simple item: beard oil.

Goodbye scratchy and scruffy. Hello soft, snuggly (and sexy)!

If your guy is anything like mine, he doesn’t have a lot of beauty products on his side of the bathroom counter.

Guys can be pretty simple like that: soap, toothpaste and a toothbrush and that’s it, right?

beard-oil-number-2But start talking to them about their mustache or beard (and how you can make it better) and their ears perk up.

Hmmm… a better beard? Do tell…”

It’s all about the marketing, ladies.

Surprise your guy (and go from scruffy to sexy!) with this simple recipe!

All Natural DIY Beard Oil/Conditioner

675-x-400-DIY-beard-oil

Ingredients:

Dr. Bronner’s – Fresh-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil Whole Kernel Unrefined – 29 oz. Plastic JarNOW Solutions Glycerine Vegetable, 16-OunceClear Thick Glass Straight Sided Jar – 2 oz / 60 ml (3 pack) + Spatulas and Labels

mixing-the-oils

Step 1:

Add about 3 tablespoons coconut oil and 1 teaspoon glycerin to a 2 oz. small glass container with a lid. It’s important to use glass in order to maintain the integrity of the essential oils.

Step 2:

Add essential oils and mix with a toothpick or small spoon (learn about some essential oils and  combinations below).

Here are a few great smelling essential oils that are awesome for your guy’s skin and beard:

Sandalwood: One of the top essential oils for the skin because it helps regulate the production of sebum and is perfect for all skin types. It’s woodsy scent smells fantastic (and is considered an aphrodisiac). It’s one of the more expensive oils, so I appreciate that Rocky Mountain Oils offers a cost effective alternative. 

Cedarwood: Another excellent oil for the skin (especially for treating acne and dandruff) with a light woodsy scent. It’s also helpful for those with attention issues.

Frankincense: Considered the “king of the oils,” Frankincense has many wonderful applications from skin care to mental well-being. It has a full, clean herby scent that blends well with many other oils.

Tea Tree: One of the best oils for fighting infection and small skin wounds. We use this in combination with lavender as a healing remedy for cuts and bug bites, so it’s also excellent for healing shaving nicks. It has a strong, fresh, pungent aroma.

Vanilla: Vanilla softens the aroma of other oils with its calming, sweet, dessert-like scent. (P.S. This vanilla essential oil blend isn’t the same as the vanilla extract used in baking.)

Clove Bud: This sweet, spicy oil (like cloves) is used in many immune strengthening blends. It can be overpowering (use sparingly and always blend with a carrier oil), but it helps to achieve that certain “manly fragrance smell” that many of our guys love.

Bergamot: Bergamot is another excellent oil for skin care, and has been known to ease tension and stress. In terms of smell, its slightly floral/citrus scent blends well with other oils and creates a lighter, brighter tone (without smelling too feminine).

Grapefruit or Lime: Citrus oils like these add a refreshing, uplifting top note smell to your beard oil. However, citrus oils are phototoxic (meaning that they shouldn’t be used if your guy is in the sun a lot).

These essential oils are amazing and have SO MANY OTHER uses beyond making the DIY Beard Oil!

Check out these oils here on the Rocky Mountain Oils site!

Here are four beard oil combinations my husband and I came up with:

(DOWNLOAD your free labels here–one for each formula below, plus a blank label if you want to create your own beard oil name!)

Rustic

2 drops Sandalwood

4 drops Cedarwood

2 drops Sandalwood

3 drops Bergamot

5 drops Cedarwood

Woodsy Spice

2 drops Clove

5 drops Frankincense

4 drops Cedarwood

1 drop Sandalwood

Step 3: Print the label (download it here!) and affix it to the top of the container using Mod Podge or double-sided tape (Mod Podge will make it waterproof).

Give your beard oil recipe a fun name that your guy will love (you can use the names we came up with or create your own!).

Package this beard oil together with a beard comb (like one of these!) and you’ve got a fantastic gift for Father’s Day, Christmas or a birthday.

You can even make up several of them in bulk and give them to other bearded guys in your life (your dad, brother, uncle, son, etc).

Fun, right?! Enjoy making this simple beard oil for your husband, boyfriend (or another guy in your life).

Here’s to manly men (with soft beards)!
