i want to get my DH an electric razor for christmas. just wondering what other dads have out there? or what other dads would like to have? any help would be good since im not really good in this department. thanks.
I have had good and bad luck with electric razors. It depends how much he likes or dislikes manual razors and the time it takes to use them. I found if you get a self cleaning model (I would use consumer reports for help in rating them) It saves a lot of time because cleaning all of the little pieces can be tedious. I personally have gone back to manual razors and I am looking into getting a straight edge razor. partly for the novelty but also I am sick of giving my money to Gillette. But for people on the go and people who don't like using manuel razors they can be worth their weight in gold.
I'm not a dad, but I asked my DH and he says that if you have any kind of serious beard it just isn't worth the hassle. It doesn't shave as clean and you have to clean it out all the time. My ex-BIL used one, but he was blond and had a pretty weak beard (shaved every couple of days).
He says he would prefer something like an ipod shuffle, or sunglasses, or a nice scarf or even a gift certificate for the itunes store (he's really into music). Good luck!
I've had two different electrics and hated them both. They don't shave close so you press hard, then the suckers give you razor burn. The cut unevenly.
Both were supposed to pretty decent models but I've never had any luck the things. Not a bad gift and not a bad thing to have laying around the house if you're in a hurry, otherwise they're completely useless.
