COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS


Most every guy shaves, so this gift has range. But most guys don't really do it right, so this gift has practical value, or so maintain the folks who run The Art of Shaving store at Fashion Show mall, 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Their starter kit sends your guy into the shower with two weeks worth of aromatherapy-based products to make the razor's work easy: pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm and a badger shaving brush. The kit retails for $38 and comes with sandalwood oil (pictured), lemon, lavender or unscented.
