The Best Shaving Gift Sets for Him

Searching for that perfect gift for your father, husband, boyfriend or brother can often be really hard. There are many times when you want to think outside the box but just end up getting another shirt or pair of socks. But how about a shaving set? You can’t go wrong with a good classic shaving set or an electric razor: this is a gift that will be appreciated and used on a daily basis.

We have researched and found the best shaving gift sets on the market today, for the classic and the electric shaver, dry or wet shave, bigger or smaller budget.

1. Shaving Gift Set with Merkur Safety Razor, Bowl, Shaving Soap, Badger Brush and Stand

This Merkur shaving set is a beautiful gift for the classic shaver.

Retailing at about $90 this 5 piece chrome-plated set comes with a Merkur safety razor, bowl, shaving soap, badger brush and stand. Not only is it physically appealing and looks great in any type of bathroom, the set is also of very high quality.

The Merkur double-edge safety razor promises a close shave without irritation or injury, and its 3-inch long handle helps to maintain control of the shave, even if you don’t have a very steady hand. The shaving brush is composed of 100% badger hairs, the highest quality hairs for shaving, and the bowl is the perfect size for creating a good lather.

The set comes with a 2.25 oz cake of Col Ichabod Conk shaving soap, a popular glycerine-based shaving soap. Although at the higher end price-wise this Merkur set makes for a stunning gift for any man, young or old. We love how, as well as being beautiful, it is also very practical!

Guaranteed to give you the same close shave you would get in a barber shop.​

2. Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic Men's Shaving System

The Braun Series 7 electric shavers are our favourite high-end shavers on the market right now. (Reviewed fully here).

Not a gift set as such, but a wonderful gift for a man who uses an electric shaver. The Series 7 - 790cc retails at just under $200 and comes with Braun’s top of the range signature foil cutting elements that allow for an extremely close shave, even for those with sensitive skin.

The shaver comes with a charging and cleaning stand, precision trimmer, a cleaning cartridge, a travel pouch and an electric cord. With its excellent cutting elements, its middle trimming blade specifically designed to lift flat hairs, 3 personalization modes and signature pulsonic technology; this is the high-end electric shaver on the market right now.

It is for dry shave only, so if you are looking for a similar model that works for both dry and wet shaves, then we would recommend the Braun 799cc.

3. Boss Razors Safety Razor Shaving Gift Set

This Boss Razors gift set is a three piece unit consisting of a chrome-plated metal stand, a 100% badger hair shaving brush and a double-edged safety razor.

The razor and brush are decorated with a lovely chrome swirl pattern and are super sturdy as well as good-looking. While it does not come with a bowl or soap, the gift set retails at around $40, less than half the price of the Merkur shaving set. An excellent choice for the classic shaver, this is the perfect inexpensive shaving gift.

The brush weight is generous and easily creates the right amount of lather, and the razor is nice and sturdy for a close and safe shave. I personally love the twisted chrome design on both the brush and the razor, and the way that the stand saves space in the bathroom, but manages to look pretty classy at the same time.

You really can’t go wrong with this one: safety razor, badger brush and stand all for a really good price.

4. Panasonic ES-RT51-S 3-Blade Nanotech Wet/Dry Shaver

Again, not a gift set per se, but the one item that always seems to pop up on the "best of" lists just because of the great quality shave it gives for such a small outlay.

If you are looking to gift someone an electric shaver but are on a tight budget, don’t look any further than here. The Panasonic ES-RT51-S 3-Blade Nanotech Wet/Dry Shaver doesn’t come with a cleaning station or fancy extras like the more expensive models, but it stands out just because it provides a great shave without all the bells and whistles.

This electric shaver comes with Panasonic’s signature Nanotech 30 degree inner blades for an extra close shave without irritation.  It also boasts a flexible pivoting head, a liquid crystal display, a pop-up beard and sideburn trimmer and can be used as a dry or wet shaver.

Easy to transport or store, this electric razor currently retails at around $50 which makes it super affordable!


We’ve picked out 2 classic shaving sets and 2 electric shavers which we think would be great gifts, whether your budget is on the high end or on the low end.
