If you are looking for that perfect shaving kit for a gift to buy for your husband, dad, boyfriend or grandpa then you will love this quick list of the best shaving gifts for men.
There are a few considerations that you will want to consider which is going to be the price and type of shaving that you want to purchase for.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Wet Shaving
I’m sure this would be a confusing area for anyone to purchase a gift in this area. The main products that make up this type of shaving will include the following items that you need to look for. You will want to include a safety razor, shaving brush and shaving stand. So, let’s briefly look at what each of them are so you understand their purpose. I promise I’ll be brief and to the point.
Safety Razor – Ok, people refer to this as what they saw their grandpa shave with. It’s usually a two piece razor that uses a double edge safety razor blade to shave with. It’s really a brilliant way to shave too. You save a ton of money by not buying replacement blades that are really expensive that they do with the cheap disposable plastic razors. These double edge blades can be purchased for the price of one replacement cartridge that will last for months! I’m talking 3-4 months. That’s a huge savings.
Shaving Soap – These usually come in a bowl or puck type form. They are also really low priced and last for months. For example, my Prorasco soap bowl last 4 months before I had to get a new one. You just can’t beat that and the cost is so low that it beats any price you would pay for shaving gel to use with the disposable razors.
Shaving Brush – Ok, this just what it sounds like. It’s almost like a make up brush. Most of them are made out of boar bristle hair. You run the brush under hot water, swirl it around on the shaving soap puck to create the lather. Then you apply to your face. It’s that simple. These last for years and again are really low priced.
Shaving Stand – Last up is the stand. You hang your razor and shaving brush on the stand. Some of the stands have a place to store the shaving soap as well. They can come in many different styles. You really cannot go wrong buying one of these to be honest. It usually comes down to a personal look you want and price.

This is totally different than the wet shaving style. Here you have men that just want to use the electric razor and not worry about using a safety razor or disposable razor because of it’s simplicity. Now, the thing about buying an electric shaver as a gift for your man, you need to know the different types of electric shavers to choose from and the price ranges they come in.
Types of Electric Shavers
Rotary – So, with these type of electric shavers the blades rotate in a circular motion to pick up the hair and cut it. Most men like you shave in a circular motion with it. You will find a really wide price range in this type of electric shaver too. You can find these as low as $30-300 dollars in price range. The popular brand names will be Norelco, Remington and Panasonic.
They main buying points you want to consider are the following: Cord VS Cordless, Shave in the shower with it (wet shaver), how long in minutes you can shave with it (charge time), pop-up trimmer and price.
Foil shavers – So, the foil shavers literally have a foil over the blades with small holes over it. They vibrate back and forth to lift the hair to cut it. You also shave with an up and down motion with it. Foil type of electric shavers are more pricey. They start around $49 – $399.
