The gift of satisfaction. That’s what.
The satisfaction that comes from receiving the perfect stocking stuffer/Secret Santa/Hanukkah present.
This year you’ll give a gift that’s thoughtful, budget-friendly, practical and most importantly, useful.
At Pacific Shaving, our philosophy is simple: create innovative shaving products that are good for the skin, good for the wallet and good for the earth. The result? A line of affordably priced, long-lasting shaving products made from organic, natural and safe ingredients. With minimal packaging and a commitment to plant a tree for every purchase, we’re the real deal. And if that’s not enough, our full-sized products are also TSA-friendly (3 oz or less), easily tucked into your carry-on bag for simplified traveling — or stuffed into a stocking for easy holiday cheer.
The quick four-product line up for supreme gift-giving:
Luxurious All Natural Shaving Cream. Softens whiskers and delivers maximum lubrication with a unique low-lather formula that keeps skin healthy and hydrated — with a subtle citrus scent that won’t leave you in a cloud of “Morning Rain” or “Irish Fields.”
The original All Natural Shaving Oil. Lubricates skin protecting it from razor burn and allowing for an absurdly close shave. Instead of drying and irritating, our Shaving Oil actually improves the quality of your skin, leaving it supple, moisturized and soothed all day. It also applies clear so you can see where you’re shaving – ideal for shaving around scars or blemishes, sculpting a beard or moustache, even shaving your head.
Our one-of-a-kind Nick Stick. Nicks are an inevitable part of shaving. Now you can do something about it – without the tissue paper. Our proprietary liquid formula comes in a roller ball applicator and dries clear. After all, shaving is no way to give blood.
As for the cost of shaving – our Blade Oil has got you covered. Clinically proven to extend the life of razor blades by 95%. Do we need to say more?
Holiday gift giving simplified!

Nothing like an object that’s utilitarian and sexy.
Today’s winner is the hooking razor from goodjoy.
I’ll let them speak (boast) for themselves:
“. . .It’s made from PP plastic (polypropylene is a no.5 category for recycling) and is recyclable after the razor head is easily removed. Hangs onto shaving mirrors, shower caddies and like the hooking toothbrush, just about everything!”

I’ve got a scuttle on the brain.
Last week I knew nothing of this contraption. This week I’m all the wiser.
My shaving buddy, KiltedShaver (check out his super cool collection of vintage shaving goods) shared his experiences using a hand-crafted scuttle and now I’m obsessing about the humble scuttle — admiring it’s anachronistic qualities and putting it at the top of gift lists for the men in my life who have everything.
I will confess that I had to look up the exact function of a scuttle. The word alone brings up images of farm machinery or kitchen utensils (“hey, grab that scuttle and flip the pancakes please”). In actuality, the scuttle is a prized tool for the wet shaver, who fills it with hot water for his daily shave — most likely with a straight razor.
Dirty Bird Pottery makes a gorgeous midnight blue scuttle with berry red accenting (pictured). So lovely, in fact, that I could see said scuttle living a severely underused life on my bookshelf.

I’m trying to figure out how to slip this little number onto my wish list:
This is the next generation of coffee table book. A comprehensive tour of the wildly hirsute men of India by Richard McCallum — author and pogonologist — and Chris Stowers, renowned international photographer.
Amazon claims that the book is currently out of stock — and of course it is. This is good stuff. But I’m sure it can be found with a bit of creative hunting. I’m going to start looking now.

The holiday season is not yet upon us and I’m already fighting the pull of the Amazon.com gift certificate. For years, I have allowed the lazy, uninspired ease of an Amazon gift card to be my go-to present for the men in my life (specifically the gentlemen who have lived long enough to truly have everything).
But those days are over.
This year, I’m determined to give my dad a gift that won’t fit in an envelope, that can’t be shoved — and forgotten — in the inside pocket of a blazer. In a new Pacific Shaving blog series, I will highlight the most creative gifts for those who shave. That’s right. If you know someone who spends any time removing body hair, you’ll now be able give him — or her — the most creative, thoughtful gift he didn’t know he wanted.
Shave in the shower! Plan your temperature-appropriate outfit!
The older generation has a soft spot for weather. Sit back and enjoy Grandpa’s grin as he unwraps this one.
