It is easy to forget the bloke when thinking about gifts for the Christmas that can be used in the bathroom, so we thought we would make life easy for you and find a few to share…
The Real Shaving Company
The Real Shaving Co. is a professional male grooming range (from £3.99) which provides a variety of naturally inspired, high-performance products in a choice of formats so you can tailor make your grooming.
You can choose between 8 products including scrubs, gels, creams and balms which can be picked to suit your skin type and preference. When you open the tube you aren’t blown away by overpowering smells like some other products on the market, however you are greeted with a masculine scent of the organic ingredients involved. Those ingredients are what also makes your skin softer than ever before.
Gillette Fusion Proglide
You can’t shave without the right equipment and for our next choice we are presenting the Gillette Fusion Proglide giftset.
The Gillette Fusion Proglide is one of the best blades that Gillette have made and along with the revolutionary blades it features the Flexiball Handel Technology. The Flexiball allows the blades to glide easily over the contours on the face, providing the closest and smoothest shave that Gillette can provide, they claim it can remove virtually every single hair.
Not many are fans of shaving without some form of lubricant to protect and nourish the skin, so the gift set comes with Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive Active Sport Shave Gel, it is a 2 in 1 gel that soothes, protects and conditions the skin, all whilst giving the ‘best shave a man can get.’
Available for just £16.49 from Boots
The Shaveworks Get Smooth Duo is a fabulous little set that is something any man would be pleased to find under the tree, well unless he is a bearded wonder in which case I would suggest some beard oil. If you do have a shaver in your life though, you couldn’t go wrong with the Pearle Soufflé Shave Cream and The Cool Fix.
The duo can be added to your man’s daily routine easily and has many benefits. The Pearle Soufflé Shave Cream exfoliates, reduces in-grown hairs, makes hair less visible and softer, as well as leaving the skin moisturised. The Cool Fix helps to reduce the nasty redness and bumps that shaving inevitably causes, soothing and cooling the skin whist also working to moisturise, tackle razor burn, and in-grown hairs.
Available from Space NK for £10
Braun Series 9
There are those who prefer the feeling of a shave with an electric razor and this year Braun have outdone themselves with the Series 9, featuring Syncro Sonic Technology.
This is a wet and dry saver that comes with a four specialised elements for cutting –
- Hyper Lift & Cut Trimmer – for the neck and chin areas, this element will let you get at hairs that are lying flat.
- Direct & Cut Trimmer – this is a specialist piece of equipment to capture all of those hairs that grown in different directions.
- OptiFoil – Allows for a really close shave that will last for longer.
- Sonic Technology – The Syncro Sonic technology is a system of vibrations, around 10,000 per minute that will estimate the contours of the face and adjust accordingly.
There is even more to this shaver though, including an adjustable multihead lock that allows for five different angles, there is a trimmer that is designed for moustaches and sideburns and is even waterproof up to 5m, (you know, should you wish to get a swim in whilst shaving). Seriously though, you can have wet or dry shaves with the Braun Series 9, it s rechargeable and has an LED battery display, each charge allowing for 50 minutes of shaving and fully recharged within 60 minutes.
This is an electric shaver with all the bells and whistles your fellow will need. Available from all major retailers for £329.99 (RRP)

No bathroom routine is complete until you have your pyjamas on and are ready for bed, (unless you are getting up in the morning of course). Having a nice pair of pyjamas to relax around the house and go to bed in are all important for a good nights sleep.
