I find Father's Day gifts to be incredibly difficult to choose – how to pick someone for the man who already has everything?
Shaving is something that every man needs to do at some point even daily for a lot of people, so a tool to improve the shaving experience is always a good bet.
If your father or partner is the kind of man who values quality and likes to take his time to do things properly and thoroughly then here are some gift ideas he will appreciate:
Specifically designed for gift-giving is our most affordable kit - the Double Edge Razor Kit. This comes with a Merkur 1904 Double Edge Razor, a Col Conk shaving soap, a Vulfix Shaving Brush, and some extra blades – all within a locally made Australian wooden box with a sliding lid.
The box is really easy to wrap and gives a fantastic unwrapping/opening experience.
By far our most popular kit is our beginner cut throat razor kit. For someone who has never tried shaving with a cut throat razor before, this contains everything needed to get started – a high quality, German manufactured, Dovo Solingen Cellidor Cut Throat Razor, a Muhle badger hair shaving brush, a two-sided Muhle leather strop, and stropping balm – all within our custom, locally made wooden box with a hinged lid, individual compartments, and felt inlay.
Get the family to put their gift money together and get something that he will treasure forever.
A great shaving cream, Proraso is a top manufacturer of shaving supplies. If your father has spent his life using cheap and nasty supermarket shaving cream out of a can, then he will really appreciate upgrading to the real thing. This creates a thick lather and does not need a shaving brush to be applied (although that is the preferred application method).
Many men will have old memories of their parents using a badger hair brush to shave but haven't had an opportunity to try themselves. Badger hair brushes are ideal at holding moisture and make any shaving soap or cream significantly thicker when building it into a lather – making it a much more luxurious experience.
There are a variety of bristle types and price ranges available.
Another gift idea is to pick an individual straight razor. I have picked out the Boker King Cutter cut throat razor. Again, made in Germany this is a great entry-level razor with a great combination of affordability, quality, design, and aesthetics.
If you have any other ideas for good gifts or if you gave your father one of these presents then we would be delighted in hearing more in the comments below.
