Fathers' Day Suggestion from the Art of Shaving

aos-starter.jpgYou're a few days away from Fathers' Day, and if you're not prepared, here's your go to gift - The Art of Shaving's Starter Kit. $38 gets your dad the pre-shave oil, shaving cream, the badger-fur shaving brush, and the after-shave balm. I've been reviewing their products now for the past week and have been genuinely impressed. The oil and shaving cream make your shave so smooth you can even shave against the grain.

Since it's a little late for shipments, I recommend picking up a box set at an old fashion brick and morter. Check out their store locator for the nearest location.

Valentine's Day Shaving Gifts

tb_logo.gifShave.com is offering 1/3 off all Ted Baker London fragrances and bodycare products. What are Ted Baker London fragrances? Honestly, I have no idea. But they're from London, so they must be cool.

From now until 14th February we're offering an amazing 1/3rd off the RRP on all individual Ted Baker No Ordinary Designer Fragrances when you purchase from our online store. This fantastic offer includes favourites such as Skinwear, Woman, M&W and Endurance as well as the latest Second Skin Eau de Toilette.

Office Courtesy Warning - Ted Baker likes the Flash. There's some comically odd animals including a mounted bearhead on one of their entry pages, as well just enough garbled singing to embarass you as you madly reach for the volume of your speakers.

Fog Free Mirrors

fogfreemirror.jpgHere's a quick and simple last-minute shaving gift idea - a fog-free mirror. Allows someone to shave in the shower. Brookstone offers a few options - this lighted one for $40 even has a slot for your razor. Amazon has a cheaper one for $19. Or, you could go nuts and spend $134 for this guy, cause really, why pay less?

The Art of Shaving

aos-logo.gifWant to drop some serious coin on some serious shaving products? You need to know about The Art of Shaving

In October 1996 husband and wife team Eric Malka and Myriam Zaoui sold their car and opened The Art of Shaving shop on New York’s Upper East Side. The Art of Shaving was the first shop dedicated to the finest selection of men’s shaving and grooming products. Within the first year, sales far exceeded expectations, leading the company to open a second location, on Manhattan’s Madison Avenue, which contained an in-store Barber Spa. A third Manhattan location quickly followed.

Nordstrom's is carrying The Art of Shaving Blue Box Gift Set for $100 which includes "everything you need for a close, clean shave [...] Shaving Cream, Pre-Shave Oil, After-Shave Balm, Pure Badger Brush plus The Art of Shaving Book." Deal? Um, yeah.

One Thousand Beards

Want to know more about the history of the beard? Looking for justification to bring back the handle-bar moustache? Checkout One Thousand Beards by Allan Peterkin (and, appararently, Allan Peterkin):

With wit and insight, One Thousand Beards explores the historical meaning of beards, moustaches, sideburns, and other forms of facial hair, from Freud’s psychoanalytic interpretation, to a wild trip through history, to a rogue’s gallery of famous bearded or moustached men, including Abraham Lincoln, Joseph Stalin, Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, and Yosemite Sam.

I may skip the pictures of boy-bands, but ZZ-Top better have a full-page spread.

Prince ShavingWell

Last year for Christmas I got my wife a frog razor*, appropriately named Prince ShavingWell. It's fun and cute, and she loves it. Mama's Earth has a bunch of different animal-themed razors, including the otter-shaped "Ottermatic" and the hippo-shaped "Hip Hip Hoorazor". Might make a good gift for someone who enjoys something slightly amusing in their morning routine.

* Note to our friends and relatives - Neither my wife nor I are frog people, nor are we cat people either, despite the fact that we have cats. That means no mug for Christmas with a cat holding a barbell which says "Meow-er Power", and no anti-Successory frog-road-kill photo which says "It's not easy being green".
