The thing about shaving is that it takes a lot of products: shave oil, shaving cream, aftershave, razor. It seems like every time we turn around there is a new product (and new step) we’re supposed to add to our routine. Whether you’re the kind of guy whose entire routine takes five minutes, or you can spend the better part of an hour in front of the mirror, creating a shaving routine can be a lot of work.

That’s why we love shaving kits—they can take the guesswork out of what to use. Instead of walking around the store with a basket full of products, shaving sets offer the chance to get everything you need in one place (bonus points if they also include a razor). Sure, most shaving kits are designed as gift items, but we say gift them to yourself first. They’re the perfect chance to try new products, discover new brands, and maybe even improve the effectiveness of your shave with very little legwork. So whether you already have a favorite brand or are trying to brand out, these are the 18 best shaving kits for every type of guy and shaving style.

Frederick Benjamin The Shaving Regimen
frederickbenjamin.com
$36.00

Any red-blooded man knows that not all shaving products are created equal, and that’s especially apparent if you have sensitive skin or struggle with razor bumps or irritation. This set is specifically designed with sensitive skin in mind. It features a pre-shave oil to help protect your skin from the razor’s blade and a bump clearing moisturizer for after. It’s one of the few shave sets that isn’t just focused on the act of shaving, but keeping your skin fresh both before and after.

Jack Black Shave Essentials Set
saksfifthavenue.com
$25.00

Maybe this set could be classified as a skincare set as well as a shaving set—it’s not just about the shave. It makes up for the lack of razor by including a face cleanser, an essential first step to any shave, and a moisturizer that does double duty as an aftershave. It’s a worthwhile investment even if you don’t shave every day, since we hope you’re washing your face and applying moisturizer even if you don’t take out the razor.

Best Shaving Kit for Sensitive Skin
Bevel Shave System Starter Kit
toner
$89.95
$77.98 (13% off)

Guys with sensitive skin know that shaving can be a struggle that cause skin irritation and gnarly razor burn. The Bevel shave system is specifically designed to cut down on razor bumps, ingrown hairs, and post-shave irritation. The safety razor may take some getting used to, but it could be a game changer.

Best Luxury Shaving Kit
The Art of Shaving Heated Razor with Sandalwood Shaving Kit
theartofshaving.com
$300.00

Is a heated razor worth shelling out a few Benjamins for this ultra-luxe set? Absolutely yes. The innovative razor makes getting a close shave a dream (it’s a Men’s Health Grooming Award winner for a reason) and coupled with the rich, sandalwood-scented Art of Shaving products, this set instantly turns your bathroom into a fancy barbershop.

Dollar Shave Club The Shave Gift Set
dollarshaveclub.com
$43.00

Whether you’re completely new to shaving or just looking to overhaul your routine, the best thing about shave kits is that they offer a chance to streamline. Case in point: this complete set, which comes with everything you need for an easy, smooth shave. We love that there are enough razor cartridges included to realistically get a full month of shaving from this set alone—something not many other kits can offer.

Gillette Fusion Proshield Shave Gift Set for Men
toner
$29.99
$25.50 (15% off)

Even guys without sensitive skin can benefit from the soothing protection of both the Gillette Fusion Proshield razor and the Pure shaving cream, both of which help protect skin from irritation while shaving. The best part of this set is that it includes 4 razors; on their own they would cost more than the set itself.

Acqua Di Parma Barbiere Essential Shaving Kit
saksfifthavenue.com
$90.00

The iconic Italian fragrance house Aqua di Parma might be best known for their luxury fragrances, but their Barbiere shaving line is the sleeper hit. This set features their best products, all of which have a rich-dude fragrance and luxurious texture, that make shaving feel like a Mediterranean vacation instead of a chore.

Gentleman Jon Complete Wet Shave Kit
toner
$49.50

Shaving isn’t always a means to an end—sometimes it’s about the experience. This very traditional set doesn’t have modern elements, like a multi-blade cartridge razor or even shaving cream in a tube. Instead, it’s about as classic as you can get. It features a safety razor, a brush, shaving soap, and a special bowl to lather it up in—just like your barber does. It’s not for the shaving novice, but anyone who likes to slow down and take their time with their shave will appreciate it.

Best Budget Shaving Kit
Harry’s Holiday Gift Set
target.com
$14.99

This shave kit features everything you want from Men’s Health favorite Harry’s: shave gel, razor, and a travel-size tube of their new body wash so your whole body can feel fresh, not just your chin. This set includes a special edition of the classic Harry’s razor with a rubberized handle—perfect for shaving in the shower if that’s your jam—and two of the new-and-improved razor cartridges.

Best Traditional Shave Set
Caswell-Massey ROS Premium Shave Gift Set
caswellmassey.com
$120.00

If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Classic American apothecary brand Caswell-Massey has been around for over two centuries and little has changed about their naturally-derived products (which is a good thing). This shaving kit is for the guy who doesn’t want a lot of bells and whistles, but knows his way around a shaving brush. Plus, it includes a bottle of the brand’s famous Ros cologne as a bonus.

Best Men’s Shaving Kit With a Bag
Every Man Jack Dopp Shaving Kit
bedbathandbeyond.com
$14.99

Tingly menthol-infused shaving products go a long way in helping your daily shaves feel like an experience. It leaves your chin with a tingly, oh-so-clean feeling that regular shaving cream just doesn’t deliver. As much as we love the minty shaving cream and the matching blue razor in this shaving kit, the real winner is the Dopp kit ,which you’ll use over and over, even after the products run out.

Baxter of California Shave Essentials Kit
nordstrom.com
$21.25

When it comes to shaving, we all know that what products you use are half the battle. While this set doesn’t include a razor like most of the others on this list, it makes up for that by featuring full-sized products. And they’re not just any products either—Baxter’s shave cream and aftershave balm are top of the line.

Harry’s Colorless Copper Winston Shave Set
mrporter.com
$60.00

The beauty of this shaving set lies in the simplicity: shaving cream, razor, cartridges. But the reason to get this one, especially if you’re a true Harry’s fan, is the special edition copper razor handle. It still has the rubberized grips you want, but feels heftier and more luxurious in your hand than the classic plastic. Plus, it looks damn good in your medicine cabinet.

Gillette Best Bundle
gillette.com
$57.00

This shaving kit features the Gillette ProGlide, one of the best cartridge razors on the market for delivering smooth, close shaves every time. The real draw of this kit, however, is the game-busting eight cartridges that are included—way more than any set out there and enough to last around two months. With that many cartridges, we don’t even miss the inclusion of shaving cream.

Barbasol Limited-Edition 1919 Holiday Gift Set
barbasol.com
$19.19

Barbasol is one of the original barbershop brands and continue to make some of the best shaving products out there, even after a hundred years. The star of this shaving set is the brand’s iconic silky smooth shaving cream. And with a full month’s worth of razors included you can’t go wrong.

C.O. Bigelow Premium Men’s Shave Set
bloomingdales.com
$75.00

A simple shaving kit like this isn’t about bells and whistles—it’s for the guy who demands the best in everything, including his shaving products. New York City apothecary C.O. Bigelow has been around for nearly 200 years and doesn't take its products lightly. The Italian-made shave cream is thick and luxurious, and the weighty razor handle is made in England and both speak for themselves.

Best Beard-friendly Shaving Kit
King C. Gillette Complete Beard Care Kit
toner
$58.68

Just because you have a beard, doesn’t mean you need to put away the razor for good. This cool shaving kit includes a safety razor and transparent shaving gel to make cleaning up the neck and edges of a beard easy, but there’s also beard care products to help facial hair shine. It’s perfect for a guy who treats his beard with utmost care or likes to experiment with facial hair every now and then.

Best Eco-conscious Shaving Kit
Bulldog Shave Kit
toner
$14.99

While there aren’t any additional razor cartridges included in this set, we still love it because the sustainable bamboo-handle razor is the shining star (we love it so much we gave it a Men’s Health Grooming Award). The shave gel and moisturizer in this set have the same eco-friendly clean vibe and still deliver an amazing shave.
