custom shaving kit for Father's Day giftFather’s Day is June 16, 2013. If you’re surprised by that, don’t fret. There’s still plenty of time to find a gift that shows how considerate you are. Shaving is something that all dads do, whether he is clean-shaven or he needs to groom his beard. So why not create a custom shaving kit as a Father’s Day gift this year?

If you know your dad’s favorite shaving cream, gel, aftershave balm and razor, great! All you need to do is wrap it all up and gift it to your father. For those who aren’t sure or who have a dad that’s been looking for something better, I’ve done a bit of research and listed out some of the best shaving products out there. I’ve also provided coupons where available to help you save a little money too. Maybe you could take Dad out for a meal also?

Shaving Oil

Sometimes preparation is key in a good shave. If your dad finds that he’s not getting a close enough shave or there’s redness, look into an oil like The Art of Shaving PreShave Oil. It conditions the skin so there’s less irritation and it softens the stubbles for smoother razor glides.

Shaving Cream

A good-quality shaving cream is a must for lubrication so that your razor can cleanly and easily glide over top of your skin. A shaving cream like Proraso has menthol as one of the ingredients to provide a fresh feeling afterwards. But if your skin is sensitive, try Kiehl’s Blue Eagle Brushless that is unscented and good for sensitive skin.

Shaving Gel

Shaving creams aren’t for everyone as they tend to be a little heavier and richer. Some prefer gels as they provide good lubrication, but they are transparent so you can see where you’re shaving. ZIRH Shave Gel is non-foaming for precised facial grooming, while the King of Shaves Alphagel produces small amounts of lather for those who prefer it.

Shaving Razor

There are many, many types of razors to choose from, including safety razors, straight razors, blade or electric razor. Manual shavers like the Merkur 180 Long Handled Chrome Safety Razor gives you a closer shave, while the Philips Norelco Senso Electric Shaver provides quick convenience without use of grooming products.

Aftershave

To avoid dryness, it’s always a good idea to put on aftershave. For seriously intense moisture, try The Art of Shaving After Shave (available in 3 fragrances and unscented like the Pre-Shave). But if you’re on a smaller budget, ZIRH Soothe provides lightweight hydration that calms irritations.
