Dollar Shave Club

My husband and I recently celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. I love to follow the traditional gift list for wedding anniversaries. I am not one for over the top or super expensive gifts. I tend towards simple, practical items that I know will be loved and used. Some years are easier than others to find the right item to mark the year.

Steel is the 11th anniversary gift. When I looked online for ideas there were some pretty awesome ideas including a new bicycle which he would definitely be thrilled by but not something I felt like I could pick out without his input. Then it hit me, Dollar Shave Club. A friend had raved about it on Facebook a while back and I had been seeing it on my Pinterest feed. So I went over and checked them out.

I ordered up a set of 4 (Steel) blades and some Dr. Carvers Shave Butter. It was the perfect gift. The first morning hubby shaved with it he came out of the bathroom and say, “I really like those razors! I think it is the best blades I have ever used.” Sure enough he was super smooth and looking handsome as ever.

He is only a few shaves into the new razors but I think it is a win! Super easy company to work with and I love that we won’t be throwing out tons of plastic disposable razors each month and best of all I can scratch razors off my shopping list. Now they will arrive without me even lifting a finger. Of course I might have to lift a finger to order myself a set!
