Christmas Gifts For Men – Wet Shave Kit (Bring Out His Inner Bond)

What guy hasn’t watched a James Bond Movie or an old gritty western and not been impressed watching their hero lather up for a classic wet shave. That devil-may-care approach and the time needed to pull off this old-fashioned shave, is the kind of stuff that brings out the macho in every hot blooded male. Not to mention any “Bond girl” might find it rather attractive to watch as well.

Over the past several years there has been a resurgence of activities that had for a time been packed away in our grandparents attics. That old shaving kit your dad or granddad used to use several times a week, is one of them. Getting back to simpler times, even if it’s just for a few minutes here and there, can keep us grounded in a day and age of such technological advancements.

The wet shave, which mainly involves applying shaving cream from a bowl with a brush and using a straight or safety razor of sorts for the actual deed itself – has been overtaken by the much more efficient means of either electric razors or self lubricating multi-blade handheld options. Time, it appears is also something you “cut”, when it comes to men preparing for the day in the new millennium.


If you or your gentleman have never performed a wet shave, you may think the idea of all that work to be a bit much. You will have to set aside at least 15 minutes to get it done right, and that’s only if your beard isn’t that long. Still, there’s something to be said about the lost art of doing something that not only demands time, but skill as well. When you finish, that shave and that time for yourself, will feel worth it.

Add a rocks glass filled with your favorite whiskey and some blue eyes streaming on your mobile during your late night shave and the whole event goes to the next level. If you’re looking to get the guy in your life a Christmas gift that will bring out his inner Bond this year, why not buy him a wet shave kit.
