great pressie for the man who has everything!
I bought this for my Dad, after he was going on for ages about having a wet shave! I had no idea where to go for this (being a 24 year old girl...) and Buyagift did me proud!
My dad LOVED it. The bloke doing it was really friendly, and a total perfectionist. One seriously pampered dad, I've never seen him so cleanly shaven!
The whole shop had a totally chilled relaxed atmosphere, and sells loadsa gifts and bits of artwork and things, so it was a pleasure to look around while I waited.
same again next year! :D

Enjoyable and relaxing
The barbers is a chair in the bottom of the shop, after being greeted I sat on a sofa round the corner from there and waited my turn. The barber used a shavette rather than a cut throat blade which I suppose is better for hygiene reasons but was slightly less exciting (As I already use a shavette myself). The towels and oils were really nice and felt lovely. As he started shaving I didn't know whether or not to contort my face in aid, I didn't, but it appeared at the end that they don't ask you too but it helps them a lot and makes the whole thing easier for them. When he reapplied the soap it had gone cold and by the end the shave wasn't as close as I can get with one pass at home. But the whole preparation and ceremony of it was very pleasant and I enjoyed the experience very much.
