With the surge in available at-home grooming products, selecting the right tools is no easy task. You’re looking to raise your shave game for a closer cut with less irritation. You want quality products and a routine that’s personalised for your skin and facial hair types. You’re also looking to bring an element of luxury with you every time you step into the bathroom. Where to look?

There’s one brand that stands out from the crowd: The Art of Shaving. While it needs little introduction, for the uninitiated, the brand is on a mission to help bring the barbershop home. With its luxury shaving, beard, and skincare accessories, it encourages you to spend a few extra minutes indulging in some much-needed me-time when you’re getting ready in the morning, upgrading your grooming experience from dreaded routine to soothing ritual.

According to the Master Barbers at The Art of Shaving, there are 4 Elements of The Perfect ShaveTM which work together to provide optimal results. Step one: use a high-quality pre-shave oil ($15, Theartofshaving.com) to prep and soften the beard. Step two: lather up with shaving cream ($28, Theartofshaving.com) and brush ($60, Theartofshaving.com) to gently exfoliate the skin. Step three: shave with the grain using your sharpest razor ($60, Theartofshaving.com). And finally, step four: moisturise skin with an after-shave balm ($15, Theartofshaving.com).

As we approach the holiday season, the brand is not only helping to provide the Perfect ShaveTM, but it’s also playing Santa’s little helper by delivering well-thought-out, beautifully packaged gift sets, no matter your budget. So, if you’re looking for an indulgent present for the (notoriously difficult to buy for) man in your life, then you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve handpicked a selection of our favorite products from The Art of Shaving which are sure to encourage the lucky recipient to elevate their self-care routine. Happy holidays!
