Christmas shopping for the gentry starts here
Here’s the shortlist of Christmas presents for him from the Valet London Xmas gifts that will be accepted with open arms and which will be hard to get your hands on anywhere else!
The Merkur Vision – £89.95
Probably Merkur of Germany’s most remarkable contemporary razor on the market today. This razor falls in the heavyweight division and has been engineered with a grading system to allow the blade to be adjusted for a closer setting.
It has also been designed with a ‘butterfly wing’ opening action on the head, making it quick and easy to change blades, which is sometimes a little tricky when it comes to the safety razor. If this was a car it would be the S-Class of Mercedes Benz. It comes in a smart, tin gift box with 10 Merkur super platinum blades.
The Merkur Futur – £74.95
A futuristic double-edge safety razor, given the name ‘Futur’ – without the E of course! A German branded razor from Solingen. Only the very best and considered by most to be the Mercedes of all razors.
This heavyweight safety razor, with six grades, is extremely sought-after with a production line that is struggling to keep up with the demand. We are proud to be able to offer it here at the Valet London. It comes in a gift box as shown with 10 Merkur super platinum blades.
The Coates gift set – £36.00
This shaving gift set comes presented in a smart, white, branded gift box, making this an ideal Christmas gift for wet shaving enthusiasts. Coates was established in 1847 and has been used by the gentry for over a century. The much-loved Coate’s shaving cream is made in England with no parabens, artificial colourants or fragrances. Coates stopped production a few years back but, in 2010, production recommenced under new ownership.
A 165 ml pot of Coates Shaving Cream should provide around 100 great shaves, as it only needs to be used sparingly with a shaving brush, to produce copious lather. Included in this luxury shaving gift set is an attractive Simpsons Beaufort B1 pure badger shaving brush. The brush is loaded with pure badger hair and has a hand lathe-turned handle.
The Valet Fully Loaded Hamper – £145.00
A sumptuously loaded hamper full of classic, high quality grooming products that can only be fully appreciated by the true connoisseur – one who enjoys taking the time to satisfy his essential needs. This consignment of grooming products has been carefully selected by the Valet London for their quality, unique branding and exclusivity. It’s stunning in Black!
