Finding the PERFECT Groomsmen Gift

Finding the PERFECT Groomsmen Gift

I recently went through the whole wedding experience in 2016 as I became engaged in February and was married in September.  What I discovered through this experience really drove what we wanted to do with our company. I must have attended a half-dozen conventions and vendor shows, trying to get ideas and never saw anything unique.

I knew I could go online and order the same thing for my groomsmen that I've been given as a groomsman, but why would I do that? It's just going to be a trinket that never sees the light of day.  I thought, man, wouldn't it be cool to give something they may not buy for themselves that they'll actually use?  Now, what if it was also within the budget?  That's where the idea of KC Shave was born. I sat down with the other owner Mike and talked for a long time about this.  We looked at a lot of different options and realized we could absolutely solve this problem and give guys a great new option with personalized shave kits.

We have premium straight razors and safety razors that can be engraved with names or initials.  Beautiful shave brushes with the best shave soap you've ever tried packaged beautifully in either our KC Shave Co. box or in upcycled cigar boxes. For us, everything we do comes back to the user experience.  None of it matters until the box arrives, you cut the tape and open it.  What happens next is the most important thing in our business.  We've put a lot of thought and effort into this, and if you research our reviews you'll see a 5-star rating on Etsy and Facebook.  What you'll see time and again is how beautifully packaged the products are and how amazing the experience is.

When you hand these gifts to your groomsmen, that's the experience we want you to be able to give them.  They cut the tape, they open it up, and smile ear to ear.   What you see in the pictures is really what you get.  The fuzz in the box keeps everything safe but looks nice, the boxes tend to smell nice because of the soaps, and when you open up this beast of a man's man razor with your name on it, it's game over.  That smile is hard to contain.  I am sure you are going to spend a ridiculous amount of time looking at every detail of the wedding, and when it comes to giving a gift to your best friends who are there with you on your most important day it should be one that they keep on their bathroom counter and use every day.  When they go to shave, they will think of you and how awesome you are every single time.  Or at least, that's the idea.

That's what we shoot for.  For us, we are obviously not there to see it, but from the hundreds of reviews and comments, it would seem we have been able to hit that mark quite a bit.  The last thing I'll say is that if you take a look at our products and have an idea of a custom kit or solution, email us.  We're people just like you.
