Finding retirement gifts for men can be a daunting chore. How are you supposed to come up with gift ideas for men who have everything after a lifetime of work? We all know guys like this… our father, uncle, co worker or friend. The guy who has toiled away for 30+ years ensuring his family has what it needs. The guy who says he doesn’t need anything but has quietly amassed so many beautiful things you aren’t quite sure how to find a meaningful gift.
Let’s first put “retirement” in the right frame of mind. In her book, Too Young to Retire, Marika Stone quotes: “Retire the word ‘retirement’ from your vocabulary. Look it up: it means to ‘withdraw’ or ‘retreat.’ Words can shape reality, and it’s time for this one to go. Doesn’t ‘renaissance’ or ‘graduation’ or ‘transition’ better describe your post-career life?”
We agree. Retirement is about admiring the beauty of your family and the things you surround yourself with every day. That is why we believe so strongly that our handmade razors and stands make such great gifts. We guarantee that even though he may not shave as much as he did while at work, he’ll still think of you at least 3 days a week when picking up his Imperium Shaving razor. So, what are our best selling gifts for the man who has everything?
For the man that suffers for razor bumps or razor burn? Get him the Rio Double Edge Safety Razor. Safety razors don’t lift the hair from under the skin and require less passes than a disposable cartridge razor to get a clean shave. Plus – the double edge blades average around ten cents a blade so he’ll stretch his retirement dollars even more.
For the old school traditionalist? The Atlas Shave Set is beautiful and the sustainable Olive wood will make any bathroom just a bit brighter. Our synthetic badger brush hairs are the best ones on the market and will whip up a great lather. Choose from a double edge blade or a Gillette blade that you can pick up from any grocery store or pharmacy.
For the modernist – Definitely our aluminum razor. Modern hand turned brushed aluminum handles are sleek, and weighted perfectly for one of the most comfortable shaves you will get. He definitely does not own anything like this already!
Trust us! Let other people get the same old alcohol, cigar, or golf gifts. Be unique and pick up a unique gift for an old fashioned wet shaving gift. He will love it.
