Say no to mugs, ties, socks, jumpers and slippers this year
No more ties or slippers! That is our rallying cry this year, so much so that we have decided to go to war against boring Father’s Day gifts.
We are advising against the same old gifts that resurface year on year and put a downer on his big day like that #1 Dad mug or those pair of slippers.
So make sure your Dad is the envy of all the top dads out there with The Bluebeards Revenge Double Edge ‘Scimitar’ Razor.
The chrome-finished razor recently won the prestigious About.com reader’s choice award for Best Razor, beating the likes of Gillette’s Fusion Pro-Glide and the Wilkinson Sword Hydro 5. Now in its fifth year, the Readers’ Choice Awards honour the world’s best products, features and services across more than a dozen categories, ranging from technology to hobbies to parenting and men’s grooming, as selected by its readers.
“Gifting Dad with a unique double edge razor just like his Father used to own shows an incredible amount of thoughtfulness,” said Dan Hildrew, from The Shaving Shack.
“Every year we have loved ones asking us for our recommendations for the Ultimate Father’s Day present; this award-winning razor is the perfect gift for Dad on June 17.”
So ensure your Dad slices through stubble the Bluebeards way this June 17! The ‘Scimitar’ is a totally stunning, bespoke, German engineered double edged razor – the epitome of traditional shaving instruments. Laser etched with the eye-catching Bluebeards Revenge logo it has a length of 9.5 cm and a weight of 67g.
“A crisp, classic design brought up to date with the benefit of precision engineering and modern manufacturing. A solid, hefty, handful of shaving equipment fit for use by real men,” said David Hildrew, ‘Bluebeard-In-Chief’.
The ‘Scimitar’ has a price tag of £34.99 and takes double edge razor blades, which can be purchased from The Shaving Shack.
The Bluebeards Revenge is also proud to be saving men’s lives this Father’s Day. The brand’s packaging features potentially lifesaving advice for men on the inside of all the cartons – encouraging men to be aware of the early signs and symptoms of the three male specific cancers – testicular, penile and prostate – so they can seek advice from a GP as early as possible.

The Duke is an impressive and popular shaving brush, which is handmade in England and densely filled with Best Badger Hair.
And this brush comes highly recommended by Tom Trueman, customer services manager at the Shaving Shack.
He said: “Established in 1919 Simpson & Co continue to make the world’s finest hand made shaving brushes using techniques that have not changed since the firm was founded.
“Each handle is turned on a lathe, polished and then filled by hand with a “knot” of fine quality selected Chinese badger hair.
“The hair for each knot is sorted, weighted and tied by a skilled craftsman who then carefully cements the knot into the handle. The handle is then etched with the name of the brush.”
The Duke is gift number eight in our top 15 gifts for Father’s Day.
Nearly half of American fathers admitted that they have pretended to like a Father’s Day gift they received, a new poll has found.
Tools are the most predictable gift, said about a third of fathers who responded to a recent telephone survey carried out by leading market research firm Wakefield Research.
And looking forward to June 20, about 20% said they expect a tie, while another 20% believe they’ll get cologne. Books and golf balls also ranked high.
But what do Dads really want? Why not treat them to a luxurious but affordable gift from the Shaving Shack.
So forget the tools, ties, books, golf balls, chocolates, aftershave, socks, jumpers and T-shirts, and get Dad something he really wants this year!!!
