Holiday Gift Ideas

Each year I try to do a “holiday gift giving guide” but I am very late to it this year so consider this a “last minute gift ideas guide.”
Leisureguy’s Guide to Gourmet Shaving (6th Ed.) is a perennial favorite. Just about everything you can think of related to traditional wet shaving is here.
Consider sample packs for inexpensive ways to try a variety of products.
There are also some vendor discounts to pass along:

  • Mama Bear is offering a 10% discount on sample and gift sets through Jan. 1
  • St. Charles Shave offers 15% off through Dec. 31 (though they will be close during the holidays).
  • Razor Emporium is offering 15% off now through Dec. 31 (using discount code #December_Savings# at checkout).
  • Bison leather products is offering 20% off now through Dec. 31 (use discount code sharpologist-december2012 at checkout).
  • Shoebox Shaveshop is offering 5% off orders over $50 (use code xmas5), 10% off orders over $100 (use code xmas10) through Jan. 2.
  • Truefitt and Hill offers 15% off online orders when you use code manticsblog at checkout.
