Last minute purchases don’t have to be a disappointment: grab the man in your life a gift he actually wants this Christmas with our range of barber-grade shave, beard, hair, and body products!
Honestly, we men are not as notoriously difficult to buy for as people make out. We might pretend we aren’t fussed, but the reality is that we just want to see a little more effort and conviction. No more “that’ll do for Dad!” So rather than throwing that generic supermarket gift into your shopping trolley – right next to the brussel sprouts and the frozen turkey – why not take some time to shop for something with a little more… personality!
Stocking fillers for men
The winter months can be harsh on a man’s skin, especially those that work/play in the great outdoors. To help him get his face back in check, fill his stocking with a face scrub that packs a mighty punch! Making the most of the exfoliating qualities of finely ground olive stones, this scrub will remove dirt and grime from the deepest pores while helping to rehydrate the skin.
His day-to-day shave likely involves a supermarket slime that promises a million things and delivers on none of them – how uninspiring. Instead, pop this brushless shaving cream into his stocking and watch his face light up the next time he goes to battle with his stubble. This outstanding solution lathers like a traditional shaving cream, just without any of the fuss.
Mainstream razors are overrated and no man needs five blades to scrape away his scruff. Instead, this traditional double-edge safety razor offers a stylish alternative from a bygone age. It comes equipped with a knurled handle for added grip and fits standard double-edge razor blades. These blades are drastically cheaper than their cartridge counterparts, meaning you’ll be saving him money too.
This pocket-sized brush makes the perfect present for bearded men! The natural beech wood handle is engraved with the iconic Bluebeards’ logo and houses responsibly sourced boar hair bristles that promise to untangle even the most matted manes. It’s sure to serve any wash bag proudly.
The impressive effects of sea salt are only just making their way into the world of men’s grooming, but boy are they welcome! For those that want hair on par with the likes of David Beckham, Kit Harrington, and Ant Middleton an effective pre-styling product is essential. Thankfully, this sea salt spray is the only product they’ll need. Spritzed into damp hair, it helps to add volume, texture, hold and wave. It smells incredible too!
Here’s a super simple product that promises to deliver a scent that’ll keep him smelling great all day long! Better yet, it’s completely free of sliver, meaning it’s appropriate for those that suffer with aluminium allergies.
No matter what he might say, he secretly enjoys being gifted new socks at Christmas. Because, ultimately, who wants to go sock shopping!? These corkers are blue and black striped, with an embroidered Bluebeards’ logo. If you’re going to give him a cliché gift, at least make it a great one!
Essential grooming gift kits for men
For the man that has fiercer stubble than Desperate Dan, this two-piece kit is an essential gift. It contains a heavy-duty shaving cream and a soothing post-shave balm, meaning it glides through stubborn stubble while avoiding any uncomfortable razor rash. It’ll transform his daily shave from a laborious chore to a satisfying encounter.
While these soaps are available as individual bars, they look much better as a colourful kit! Featuring all three iconic Bluebeards’ scents (Original, Classic and Cuban) these ingot-shaped chunks of soapy goodness are perfect for cleaning away the day’s dirt. Their hand-crafted shape also makes them super effective in the shower.
Teaming up with The Bluebeards Revenge Travel Beard Brush is the brand’s Classic Blend Beard Oil. This fragrant, liquid gold contains a unique blend of essential oils, all designed to improve the smoothness of fuzzy facial hair. In this beard conquering kit he’ll find a lifelong friend.
Every year you choose his aftershave depending on the free wash bag that comes with it. Some of you even give that free wash bag to another male relative – two birds with one stone! This year, try making the wash bag the main gift: this essential kit features a body soap, comb, flannel, moisturiser, deodorant, and comes packed inside a sturdy travel wash bag.
This sleek eau de toilette and shower gel duo is perfect for the man that sweats from dusk ‘til dawn. It comes in a gift boxed too, meaning there’s minimum effort to prepare it for Christmas Day – just whack a bow on the top and sit back with a mulled wine.
Elite grooming gift kits for men
The hipster culture is still very much a phenomenon with beards, checked shirts and nautical tattoos being modelled by tens-of-thousands of men. While he might already have a wardrobe full of liberal shirts, this kit is perfect for making sure his grooming game matches up. It features a cut-throat razor to line up a beard, a super-slick hairstyling pomade, a fragrant beard oil, and a sturdy moustache wax for those elaborate gunslinger styles.
There’s nothing quite like the feel of a wet shave with a traditional cut-throat razor. These tools might require a little extra practice (some even start by shaving a balloon!) but the end result is more than worth it – there’s a reason why this is the barber’s tool of choice! To perfect his shaving experience, this well-presented kit also comes stocked with an authentic boar hair shaving brush, a tub of heavy-duty shaving cream and a soothing post-shave balm.
If he’s not quite ready to take the leap into cut-throat razor shaving, then this is the kit for him. It comes with a polished chrome-plated double-edge safety razor and all the essential shaving accessories he’ll need for a barber-grade shave on Christmas Day. Blades are not included, but can be purchased from us separately for a very fair price!
Premium straight razors for men
For the man who takes his Sunday shave seriously, only the most premium straight razors will suffice. Thankfully, The Bluebeards Revenge has a range of tantalising tools to suit such a need. Below, you can browse the best of the best. All of these razors require honing and stropping to maintain their sharpness, adding to the experience.
The Broadsword is a bespoke, precision-engineered straight razor that’s been designed in collaboration with master craftsman Ralf Aust. Using his 50 years of experience, this razor equips the serious shaver with the ultimate tough stubble slicer. It features a 5/8 inch carbon steel hollow ground blade, with a round point, as well as the authentic Ralf Aust signature embossed on the blade.
The Claymore features a sturdy, moisture repelling African Blackwood handle that perfectly contrasts the polished shine of its 5/8 inch French-point carbon steel blade. This razor requires 60 intricate production steps to ensure the supreme level of craftsmanship that Ralf Aust consistently delivers.
The natural olivewood scales that craft the Spatha’s handle make each and every razor slightly unique due to the graining of the wood. Add to that a 6/8 inch stainless steel blade with a serrated tang and a Spanish point, and this is a distinctive and purposeful tool. The uniqueness of this razor is also celebrated with a certificate of authenticity signed by Ralf Aust and the Bluebeard-in-Chief, David Hildrew.
The Sabre is the highest grade of straight razor provided by The Bluebeards Revenge, and it more than deserves its rank. It features a 6/8 inch carbon steel blade that’s polished to perfection, with a French-point and a serrated shank. Every razor is totally unique thanks to its striking blade profile, hollowed out spine, and polished cow horn scales. Like the Spatha, this razor also comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Ralf Aust and the Bluebeard-in-Chief, David Hildrew.
