I love everything about Christmas, but the one thing that bugs me every year and puts me off just a little, is the stress I go through trying to work out what to buy the men in the family. When I ask them what they'd like for Christmas I'm greeted with helpful responses like "I don't need anything" or "I don't know, you choose" and worst of all "I'll have a think about it..." which of course they won't - it's just a fogging tactic to get rid of me!
One gift that always goes down well though, and helps me start off my shopping list, is a Gillette gift set. All the guys in the family shave, and use disposable razors, so I know it's a gift they actually need, plus buying new razor blades can be pricey, so they appreciate being stocked up. Goodness knows what I'll do if they all jump on the beard trend!
This year Gillette have upped my shaving gift set buying game by releasing a James Bond themed version to tie in with the new Spectre movie - the Gillette Flexball Spectre gift set. James Bond is the iconic action man, and I'm sure most guys have pictured themselves as 007, tearing around in an Aston, demanding it shaken, not stirred, so I'm certain the 007 styled shaving kit is going to go down really well on Christmas day.
Inside the gift-boxed set you get the flexball manual razor, two proglide razor blades and a 75ml proglide shave gel. I can't guarantee it's going to turn your man into Daniel Craig, but it's surely a step in the right direction.
