Now there are two sides to this coin, firstly those of you that want to get your Dad the most amazing Fathers Day gift but really do not know what to buy. Or you are a Dad yourself and want to make sure that your loved ones treat you to the shaving gear you have been hankering after for a while….so to give you some help, here are some idea’s:
Shaving brush on a budget
Want to buy Dad an awesome shaving gift but strapped for cash?
Vulfix pure Bristle shaving brushes start from just £5.99. The Vulfix pure Bristle collection of brushes is manufactured from hair taken from Hogs and is favoured by traditional wet shavers who prefer a stiffer feel to their brush. The Bristle comes in a variety of textures from the very still grey, through to brown and the slightly softer bleached white.
The shave because I have to Dad
Ok so traditional wet shaving is not for everyone, we would love it if that was the case, but we know there is a large proportion of your fathers that shave because they have to, not for pleasure. For a Dad like this, try as we might, he may not be convinced! Opt for some nice smelling Cologne like Taylor of Old Bond Street, Eton College £24.60 or even try an aftershave tonic from OSP

Shave of the day Dad
If your Dad is the type that loves to post his shave of the day pictures on Instagram or Facebook, then go for an Edwin Jagger Black & Gold Double Edge Razor! Gold plated with imitation ebony handle, this would look great in any shave den.
Sensitive Skin Dad
If your Dad has sensitive skin then many of our shaving soap ranges are especially suited. Wickhams shaving soaps are Parabens-free, Lanolin-free, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate-free (SLS) and are suitable for Vegans, people with sensitive skin and are NOT tested on animals.
In need of an upgrade Dad
So this is for those of you mainly considering dropping a few hints to your family! You may have been traditional shaving a while and perhaps started with the basics. Is it time to upgrade?
If you started out with a basic double edge safety razor, why not upgrade to an adjustable? The Futur range of razors is pure class. It has a variety of settings which can be adjusted to your liking or to suit the area you are shaving.
