There’s nothing more exciting than being the recipient of a thoughtful gift that you will actually use and enjoy. No need to wait for the holiday season to experience the thrill of opening a treasure containing package…give the gift of good grooming to yourself!

Here is a list of 5 classic grooming gifts every man should give himself:

1. Pre-Shave Oil
– Preparing the skin is essential to achieve a close, smooth shave. This Pre-Shave oil softens facial hair to get them ready for a shave. The lavender essential oil that is in this treatment provides a therapeutic sensory experience when applied to the face.

2. 5/8″ Blade Grenadille Dark Wood Straight Razor
Straight razors are the ultimate in the world of men’s grooming. They are a classic that have proven themselves effective and durable over the years. This handle is made from African Grenadille wood and the blade is stainless steel. Shaving with a straight razor is an art that requires skill and care.

3. Alum Block
– An alum block is the quintessential classic shaving tool. Made of a natural mineral (alum,) this block activates when wet to protect against razor burn, sooth skin irritation and stop bleeding from any nicks or cuts.

4. Black Porcelain Shaving Bowl
– This classic, sophisticated shaving bowl is the perfect addition to the well groomed man’s vanity. Add your favorite shaving cream or soap and stir it into a soothing, rich lather. This porcelain bowl has a platinum rim to accent any decor, and it’s the perfect size to hold in the hand while shaving.

5. 7 Piece Manicure Set – The final grooming gift to bestow upon yourself should be this 7 piece manicure set. It contains everything that the well groomed man needs: cuticle nipper, toe nail clippers, nose hair scissors, nail file, tweezers, nail clippers and mustache scissors. All 7 pieces are made of stainless steel.
