The Shaving Stuff 2008 Holiday Gift Guide

holiday_guide.jpgThe holiday season is upon us once again, and it's time for all of you to start stimulating the economy. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to spend your way out of this economic crisis, one gift at at time! OK, maybe not the soundest advice, but there will be some people you still want to buy for, and some who will still be expecting a gift. Aside from the electric razors we've tried to keep most things below $50 on this year's holiday gift guide.

Shaving Cream
Here's a list of tried-and-true winners as well as a couple choice brands we shaved with over the last year worthy of their company. Any of these shaving products will elevate your shave to new levels of comfort, closeness, and class.
The Art of Shaving - $38
Sharp's - $45
Billy Jealousy - $50
MENSGROOM - $52
MenScience - $55
ZIRH - $59
Baxter of California - $60
Ritual - $79
Peter Thomas Roth - $100
Gentlemen's Refinery - $199
John Allan's - $245

Still not seeing it? Surf on over to the Details for Men gift kit page and see what strikes your fancy.

Cartridge Razors
I'm still loving the powered razors. A little vibration goes a long way toward a smooth and comfortable shave. The Gillette Fusion may trump Schick on number of blades, but the Quattro's now got this kick-ass trimmer for keeping your whiskers or sideburns in line.
Gillette Fusion Power - $10.99
Schick Quattro Titanium Trimmer - $12.49

On the other ends of the spectra, we recommend the environmentally conscience Recycline razor, and the experimental Rolling Razor.
Recycline Preserve Triple Razor - $7.49
Rolling Razor - $14.95

Electric Razors
Same group as last year, only the Braun Pulsonic has been rebranded the Series 7. Still the top of the line traditional electric razor in my book. If rotary is your game, choose between either the wet/dry lubricant-dispensing Moisture Shaving System, or the more classic arcitec.
Braun Series 7 - $227
Philips Norelco Moisture Shaving System - $129
Philips Norelco arcitec - $219

Pubic Shaving
The BodyGroom is still going strong, now with a professional edition with "high-performance trimmer attachment", as well as another set of hysterical videos worthy of a Webby. And if completely bare is where you're headed, there's still no beating the Cleancut - the #1 choice in the porn industry.
Philips Norelco Bodygroom - $49.99
Seiko Cleancut - $67

Head Shaving
Just like you wouldn't shave downstairs without the proper equipment, you don't want to shave the roof without the proper tools. Get the gear designed for your noggin.
Headblade - $10.99
Remington Short Cut Clipper - $28.49
Sharps Mission: Control Bald Head Balm SPF 15 - $24

Nose Shaving
As you get older, your hair follicles move from the top of your head to your nose and ears. It's a scientifically proven fact. Look it up. I just finished the Wikipedia page on it. These tools will help you combat the forsaken follicle foliage.
Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer - $18.88
Philips Norelco Nose and Ear Trimmer - $12.99

Back Shaving
A year later and I still don't want to talk about it. If you know a guy who needs one of these, just do him a favor - buy it for him, and give it to him while no one else is in the room.
MANGROOMER - $39.95

Shaving Accessories
Nicks and cuts come at exactly the wrong time. Your dopp kit needs a Nick Stick for fast healing after a particularly brutal shave. And while I still haven't made peace with the goatee, I have to admire the ingenuity which went into the Goatee Saver. Somebody's got to get us out of this economic mess.
The Nick Stick - $5.95
The Goatee Saver - $19.99

Books
Leisureguy continues to update his tome and put my work to shame. Get the straight dope on old-school shaving techniques and all the current soaps, oils, and creams that go with them.
Leisureguy's Guide to Gourmet Shaving: Shaving Made Enjoyable, Second Edition - $11.65
Sharp Practice: The Real Man's Guide to Shaving - $4.89
The Great American Bathroom Book - $20
