Grooming Essentials: Must-Have Items in Every Men’s Shaving Gift Set

Grooming Essentials: Must-Have Items in Every Men’s Shaving Gift Set


Staying groomed and looking fresh is something many men like to keep on top of, but it’s not easy without the right kit. Gifting a grooming kit, complete with everything your man needs to stay on top of his shave will always be well-received, but what exactly goes into it? Shaving gift sets for men help to ensure a clean shave, a fantastic scent and a great boost of self-confidence. Let’s explore what you need to put in that kit.


What do you need in a shaving kit?


The contents of shaving gift sets for him will not necessarily include all he needs for the perfect shave, so creating one yourself ensures you can include the added extras. Our shaving gift sets typically include aftershave and shower gels and sometimes men’s deodorants too depending on the gift you choose. For a full shaving kit don’t forget to include:


Captain Fawcett Shaving Brush, Razor & Shaving Soap Gift Set

Shaving Brush


A good, high-quality shaving brush allows you to create a thick lather for a clean shave. The best shaving brushes will also exfoliate the skin and lift the hairs away from the face allowing the razor to glide smoothly and as closely as possible. The best quality shaving brushes use natural fibres, such as a badger hair shaving brush and synthetic fibres should be avoided where possible.



Each man has a personal preference when it comes to razors. Some like a Mach3 while others like the close feel of a cut-throat or safety razor. Whatever you choose, it will play an integral part in the shaving kit as no shaving will take place without it!


Shaving Soap


Good quality shaving soaps will create a lot of foam and lather to help protect the skin. Specialised shaving soap should also help to protect your skin and soften beard hairs so they are easier for the razor to shave through.


BBRSC150 Shaving Cream Ad1



No shaving kit is complete without an aftershave to leave you feeling fresh. Our range of aftershaves includes many of the latest releases from leading perfume houses and designers. Aftershave helps to soothe the skin and you can enjoy the fantastic fragrance too. Some of our newest offerings include Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Vetiver, Coach for Men Green Eau de Toilette and Carolina Herrera Bad Boy Extreme Eau de Parfum. Strong and attention-grabbing these scents make a wonderful addition to a gift shaving kit.




A luxurious leather bag or waterproof canvas option is a great choice for keeping the shaving kit all in one place and safe. It also makes it easy to travel and transport.



Male grooming is becoming more popular year on year and ensuring your man looks his best at all times is easy with our male grooming gift sets. Whether it’s a special occasion or just because you can be sure it will be a huge hit.
