Confession, I have never used The Dollar Shave Club, but since they aren’t sponsoring this post I can confidently maintain my non “sell-out” status. It was actually my neighbor’s idea to alert The Style Gathering readers of the magic of The Dollar Shave Club. He says that it is comparatively inexpensive, ridiculously convenient and he likes the products. He also recently had an impressive customer service experience. Considering my husband, Tim, and I often have conversations (initiated by him) surrounding the excellent customer service at Chik-fil-A, I know that this is an important part of any buying experience. Just in time for Father’s Day I am going to fill you in on the details of The Dollar Shave Club.
Basically it is a membership with no commitments or fees. They have three levels of membership that provide a razor and 4-5 cartridges a month depending on your membership level. For $1, $6 or $9 dollars you get 2, 4 or 6 stainless steel blade cartridges monthly and free shipping with the higher two levels. You can also adjust delivery frequency and upgrade or downgrade levels at no extra charge. You can add any of their shaving products to your shipment at anytime.
Spoiler Alert…my daddy is so getting this for Father’s Day. You can buy your dad or husband a membership or a gift card and he can select his own preferences. Since Tim is a Costco shopper and has enough blades stockpiled until the second coming, he will be getting a Chik-fil-A gift card.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post that will be a full blown Father’s Day Gift Guide…if you think razors are not the best a man can get.
Gift Guide | Mother’s Day
April 29, 2015
By Buffy York
While I certainly have my moments, on most days I consider myself to be below an 8 “crazy” on the Hot/Crazy Matrix. The “below eight” reasonable side of me knows that my accountant husband is not a mind reader. I can wish until my wisher breaks, but if I don’t drop very specific hints he is never going to know exactly what I want for any given holiday. With Mother’s Day approaching it is the perfect time to put together another Gift Guide, not only to help you with what to buy your mom, but also to throw it all out there in the open. These are some of the things on my wish list babe.
1 | Leather Bound Journal–I am not a digital note taker.
2 | Gold Plated Fit Bit–I want to be like everyone else, just a little more stylish.
3 | Lip Balm–My absolute favorite and I am out.
4 | Stand Mixer–After 13 years mine just bit the dust.
5 | Turkish Beach Towel–How cool are these?
6 | Cross Body Bag–Blush and perforated. . .perfectly on trend.
7 | Tortoise Shell Sunglasses–Just because they look cool.
8 | Aerin Hand Cream–I am almost out.
9 | Jo Malone Body Wash–I need some in reserve.
10 | Roberto Coin Initial Necklace–So don’t need this but I like it.
11 | Mar y Sol Beach Bag–I have been eyeing these for a few years.
12 | Lush Bath Bomb–These are just fun.
