Raise your hand if you have a hard time picking out gifts for the man in your life! Whether it’s a father who already has everything or a husband who doesn’t like trinkets, these loved ones can be a challenge to shop for when birthdays and holidays roll around. With Christmas on the horizon, we’re taking some time today to round up a collection of shaving mirrors that are as functional as they are stylish. The perfect useful gift for your loved one, a shaving mirror can also double as a make-up mirror, so this treasure can be for her as well as for him. Many of the mirrors below are magnified for the clearest view possible while grooming. Read on for a range of options…
Round Wall-Mounted Shaving Mirrors
We begin with round mirrors that attach to the wall, as this is one of today’s top shaving mirror options. Below we see the Round LED Wall Mirror by American Imaginations, available through Wayfair. With a chrome finish and a 360-degree swivel, it’s both functional and stylish. Plus, LED lighting adds convenience, and there’s even a dimmer so you can adjust the light level as needed:
Also available through Wayfair is this Bath Boutique Mirror by Better Living Products. It’s an affordable find that features an extended arm, flexible joints for rotation and swiveling, and a double-sided mirror setup. Chrome-plated steel is the material of choice:

Fogless shaving mirrors are a must for those who wish to shave while showering, and this fogless mirror (available through Amazon) features a power lock suction cup for easy installation. It can swivel in any direction, and it has a built-in razor lock, which in our book is pretty darn handy!
A strong suction secures this OXO Good Grips mirror to the wall, and fog-resistant glass ensures that in-shower grooming isn’t interrupted by steam. [available through Amazon.com]
Our favorite shower mirror on the list in terms of sleek modern design, this highly rated Fogless Shower Mirror by Cassani Fogless Mirror (via Amazon), can be mounted to the wall of your shower with the help of a stainless steel hook. It also includes a razor hook for added convenience.
