05Dec The MÜHLE Christmas Gift Guide
The MÜHLE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE
At MÜHLE, it goes without saying that shaving should be a pleasure. Having the right shaving set, skincare products and accessories is essential and enables us to thoroughly enjoy the shaving preparation, process and, of course- the end result. For many of us shaving is something we do after a shower, as we freshen up and take some time for ourselves before we face the demands of this day and the next. The tactile nature, particularly of wet shaving has a soothing, meditative quality that helps us slow down and step away from the fast-paced daily grind. This investment of time is a good one; not only does it equip us with a great frame of mind as we prepare for tasks and challenges ahead, but it lovingly cares for our most worn, loved and characterful accessory – our face.
Our Gift Guide for the mindful shaver, will ensure you or your loved ones have everything you need for the perfect shave.

The aloe vera substance is extracted from the inside of cultivated aloe plants from the Mediterranean area. The natural ingredients calm and refresh the skin and the senses during shaving. With fine fragrance notes of oakmoss and mint. The high-grade resin, black fibre brush, is eye-catching and timeless.
Our most iconic and best-selling product the R89 safety razor is a stylish classic which can even shave edges with precision.
The single blade produces a very close shave, lasting result and is much kinder to the skin especially when used with a good lather.
Shaving with a safety razor does demand a little respect at first in terms of attention to the 30 degree angle, as well as time to lather the hair. However, after a brief familiarisation period you can shave with confidence and achieve great results; the R89 is particularly good if you’re new to wet shaving because it has a closed comb. At 32.50 the R89 is a gift which can last a lifetime- a priceless tool for a wet-shaver.
Our well-designed Silvertip Fibre Travel Brush conveniently packs away into the handle, fitting neatly into toiletries bags for gents who are on the go. Silvertip Fibre was developed by MÜHLE to perform like the best badger brushes and the fibre is particularly durable making it well suited to travel. Stylish and handy, this brush is certain to attract admiration. Available in Silver and Black.
SKIN CARE FOR UNDER £40
If you know someone who’s after a natural and effective holistic regime, from shaving to skin and haircare our Organic Gift Sets are a perfect match. Argan oil, the central ingredient of the Organic Range, is particularly rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Creamy waxes and nurturing glycerine optimise the hydro-lipid balance of the skin, helping it to retain moisture. The Organic Range is BDIH certified; products are vegan and contain no synthetic preservatives, aromatic substances or colourants. A fine gift for anyone interested in caring for the skin, the subtle, natural fragrance is suitable for both men and women.
One thing barbers’ talk about a lot is the important of using a good quality shaving cream and aftershave balm, particularly for wet-shavers. Producing a good quality lather that can be massaged into the hair with a shaving brush, helps lift the hair so it can easily be removed with a safety razor and nourishes and protects the skin. Coupled with an aftershave balm in our Shave Care Gift Sets, skin will soothed and moisturised after a shave, a great look for the day ahead and in prime condition for the next time. Available in classic Sandalwood, gentle Aloe Vera, and refreshing Sea Buckthorn our Shave Care sets are an all round great gift.
STOCKING FILLERS for under £20
Classic Sandalwood, gentle Aloe Vera, and refreshing Sea Buckthorn the three Shave Care scents all available in soap form, as a trio. Guaranteed to make your stocking smell lovely.
Shaving with a safety razor is easy when you prep the skin and take your time, however sometimes, as with a cartridge razor small nicks can happen. Having the alum in pencil format, helps mend any small nicks as you can target specific areas the same way you would with a pencil. This alum pen (or styptic pencil) soothes the skin after shaving, with astringent effect. For use on damp skin. An ideal tree gift or stocking filler for a wet shaver.
Our newest product, the Shaving Stick is very handy. At 1.3 oz, it can be taken into hand luggage and applied directly onto the skin, working the lather with a damp brush. An ideal tree gift or stocking filler, for anyone who likes to have their shaving kit when they travel. Available in Sandalwood, Aloe Vera and Sea Buckthorn.
