In the lead-up to Christmas I’m constantly keeping my eyes peeled for unique gift ideas and personal presents for my loved ones; preferring to find something traditional and well-made over the everyday disposable goods that we’ve all become accustomed to.
For me, the best gifts are those which stand out from the crowd, are useful and serve a purpose as well as being luxurious enough that you wouldn’t necessarily think to buy them everyday from your local high-street. Hence why I knew these subscription shaving boxes from The Personal Barber would make the perfect Christmas present for my boyfriend!
Whilst I don’t have a beard myself, my boyfriend proudly maintains his own and I’ve certainly taken note of the increased popularity and range in beard oils and shaving products over recent years.
It’s said that using a solid metal razor and warm scented lather is an incredibly luxurious and satisfying experience to look forward to and something I would imagine to be on par with us ladies enjoying a scented bubble bath and face mask of an evening.
The advantage of using a solid single blade razor is that less stress is placed on the skin which reduces irritation and therefore banishes neck rash – a more enjoyable experience with better results, what’s not to love? From an environmental perspective this razor also ticks all of the boxes for me by minimising plastic waste as each blade is made from 100% recyclable steel as the traditional razor is kept; whereas over 2 billion disposable plastic razors are sent to landfill sites each year.
This beautiful box set comes wonderfully presented and wrapped with a sense of luxury and professionalism that a plastic razor and spray-foam from a can will never come close to. With step-by-step instructions included, even novice shavers can enjoy the precision and tradition of a proper gentleman’s shave as the high-quality safety razor, shaving brush, shaving soap and replacement razor blades are all included within the first box and are everything you need to get started.
Whilst this beautiful gift set here is the ideal surprise for my partner this Christmas, The Personal Barber also have a subscription box service for a gift that keeps on giving! Every six weeks you can receive hand-picked natural shaving products including ten replacement blades, a shaving soap or cream and two full-sized grooming products worth around £35.00 – £40.00 delivered directly to your door – making great savings on retail prices too! Should you wish to skip a box, delay an order whilst you’re on holiday or reactivate the subscription at a later date, you can easily control your orders from an online account for convenience.
Each safety razor and brush is guaranteed for life for reassurance of quality and I love the thought of my boyfriends chore of a shaving routine now being a positive and luxurious experience for him; giving himself the care, time and attention to detail that he deserves to look and feel his best. No more running out of blades and soap and plenty of new exciting products and natural brands to discover – I just know he’s going to love it!
