Gifts for the Bearded, Mustachioed, or Otherwise Hairy
The Facial Hair Handbook
Whether your friend sports a pencil-thin Dali ‘stache or a jungle-dense Frank Beard number, they should learn how to style and properly care for their face ‘do. By the former Natural Beard champion of the world, Jack Passion, this book is “for the man who is ready to look like one.”
With this gift, your hairy loved one won’t ever have to buy blades again! And he’ll look like a bad ass alone in the bathroom. Every man’s-man ever has wanted one of these. These beautiful Black Straight Razors from New York Shaving Company, as well as its other assorted shaving tools, are made right here in Brooklyn.

Dubbed “the scent of Brooklyn” for good reason. Make sure your pals smell right with the Williamsburg Mustache Wax or Red Hook Beard Oil or Greenpoint Tattoo Balm. This BK original also does pomade and “Gentlemen’s Facial Serum,” to sooth the mustachioed dudes’ winter skin and hair.
Traditional barbershops abound all over Brooklyn. Here’s a few great straight-razor deals across the hairiest borough: Pearl Street Barbers in DUMBO; Gasper Como in Williamsburg comes with many recommendations; and Benny’s in the Slope does great work. Don’t let those ‘staches go unkempt this holiday season.
Like an afro-pick for his face. Kitschy, sure. But this pragmatic man-brush easily slips into even the skinniest jeans and is sure to keep the crumbs and critters out of particularly bushy beards. Also, if you’re feeling like splurging, a limited edition gilded stainless steel comb is available.
