5 Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Fathers Day (Sunday 16th June 2024) is just around the corner, and if you're looking for the perfect gift for the dad who has everything, why not consider upgrading his shaving routine? Wet shaving is not only a practical daily ritual but also a luxurious experience that any father can appreciate. Here are the top 5 wet shaving gifts for every type of wet shaver that will make this Father’s Day unforgettable.

1. A Safety Razor

A safety razor is the cornerstone of a classic wet shaving kit. Unlike disposable razors, safety razors provide a closer, smoother shave and are built to last. The weight and balance of a well-crafted safety razor offer superior control, reducing the risk of nicks and cuts.

Look for a safety razor made from high-quality stainless steel with an ergonomic handle. Brands like Merkur, RazoRock and Rockwell are known for their exceptional craftsmanship.

Why It's a Great Gift: 

  • Sustainability: Safety razors reduce plastic waste since only the blades need to be replaced. 
  • Cost-effective: While the initial investment is higher, the cost of replacement blades is much lower than disposable cartridges. 
  • Superior Shave: Provides a closer, irritation-free shave, perfect for sensitive skin.

The safety razor is an item of beauty, with timeless appeal! In an age where environmental concern and zero plastic living is high on the agenda for many, purchasing a safety razor for Dad has much more meaning than just classic nostalgia. 

Choose from our range of safety razors from £22.50. Alternatively, check out the new innovative Leaf Shave Razor - a plastic free alternative to a standard multi blade razor.

2. Shaving Soap

Shaving soap is an essential component of the wet shaving experience. Unlike commercial shaving creams, traditional shaving soaps create a rich, creamy lather that protects and moisturises the skin. Ingredients like glycerin, lanolin, and essential oils not only provide a smooth shave but also nourish the skin. 

Why It's a Great Gift: 

  • Skin Benefits: Natural ingredients help to soothe and hydrate the skin. 
  • Aromatic Experience: Available in a variety of scents, from sandalwood to lavender, making shaving a sensory delight. 
  • Long-lasting: A single puck of shaving soap can last for several months, providing excellent value for money.

3. Get your Father in a lather with a Shaving Bowl!

shaving bowl is used to whip up a luxurious lather from shaving soap. It’s a simple yet essential way to enhance the shaving experience. Look for shaving bowls made from durable materials like ceramic or stainless steel. 

The design should include ridges or grooves inside the bowl to help create a rich lather quickly. 

Why It's a Great Gift: 

  • Ease of Use: Makes lathering up shaving soap quick and efficient. 
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Beautifully crafted bowls can add a touch of elegance to any bathroom. 
  • Functional: Designed to hold the perfect amount of lather for a complete wet shave.

4. Dad's statement shaving brush

A high quality shaving brush is a must-have for any wet shaving enthusiast. It helps to lift and soften the beard, ensuring that the shaving soap is evenly distributed. Synthetic shaving brushes are also an excellent choice, especially for those who prefer a vegan option.

Why It's a Great Gift: 

  • Exfoliation: Gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and preventing ingrown hairs. 
  • Superior Lather: Creates a thicker, creamier lather than using hands alone. 
  • Luxurious Feel: Soft bristles provide a pampering experience with each shave.
5. Smell great with an aftershave gift

No shave routine is complete without a good aftershave. Aftershave helps to soothe and disinfect the skin post-shave. Alcohol-based aftershaves provide an astringent effect, while balms and lotions offer additional moisture and healing properties. 

Look for products containing natural ingredients like aloe vera, witch hazel, and essential oils. 

Why It's a Great Gift: 

  • Skin Care: Helps to heal and protect the skin after shaving. 
  • Fragrance: Leaves a pleasant scent that can last throughout the day. 
  • Variety: Available in various forms (splash, balm, gel), catering to different skin types and preferences.

Choosing the perfect Father’s Day gift doesn’t have to be challenging. By selecting high-quality wet shaving products like a safety razor, shaving soap, a shaving bowl, a shaving brush, and aftershave, you can give your dad the gift of a shaving experience. Not only are these gifts practical, but they also add a touch of luxury to his daily routine. This Father’s Day, let your dad indulge in the timeless tradition of wet shaving.
