How about spreading some old school cool this holiday season? Treat all the surfers, skaters and rockabillies in your life to gift boxes from Uppercut Deluxe.

This Australian brand features high quality grooming products with a 1950’s barbershop vibe. Founded by childhood mates turned barbers, Luke Newman and Steve Purcell, this brand delivers heritage inspired hair styling products with modern formulations. Even the company’s namesake pays homage to the past, as “Uppercut” was the nickname of Newman’s Grandfather Willy Shea, a boxer that toured Australia during the great depression. These manly grooming boxes make great gifts for the toughest guys on your list.
