Men’s Gift Guide

Comments 6 Standard

A Handy Gift Guide for the Men in your life.

What with Summer round the corner, fathers day and that important birthday for the special man in your life, I thought it best to put together a Men’s Gift Guide – because let’s be honest we all know that one guy who we struggle to buy for. Hopefully this post will help you decide something special for them.


One. – Panasonic Shaver

[AD] This entry is on behalf of Panasonic who have paid for a mention and advertisement.

Panasonic ES-LV6Q

Now no matter whom we have in mind, Dad, Husband, Best Friend or Milkman – more likely than not any and all men would love and appreciate a new shaver and this is where Panasonic steps in.

Panasonic has recently unveiled a new range of shavers, trimmers and clippers. The full range can be found here on “Shavers Panasonic UK”. In particular, I am drawn to the ES-LV6Q. Quoted as “The Next Generation Shaver for the Distinguished Gentleman” The ES-LV6Q uses a Multi-Flex 5D head, 5 blade technology and a 14,000 CPM Linear Motor Drive that is all packed into a comfortable sized handheld unit that gives outstanding results and incredible closeness.

Another great function to this unit that really bugs me with others is: say you have a mixed length of out of control beard and facial hair. Some razors, mine included, struggle to power through the fuller thicker sections. But with the ES-LV6Q it houses new sensor technology that can tell a thicker patch it coming and boosts the power to maintain the smooth action of trimming and minimises the skin irritation. I guess it’s like cruise control in the car – we don’t know HOW exactly it works, but it does and we love it.

Unlike other electric shavers, this one has the function to work wet or dry, for a quick trim or a full-on soap and lather shave – this unit is waterproof and developed with Japanese Blade Technology, the same the Japanese use for the manufacture of swords – and we all know how good their swords are, well imagine that in a razor.

Want him looking fresh, feeling fly and suave, then a new razor is always a great shout. As the main component in my bathroom in regards to my grooming regime, a trendy new razor will always be welcomed.


Two. – After Shave Balm

[Note] This entry is non affiliated, I was suggested to promote the product via a blogger on twitter. There is no personal gain from this.

Now let’s be honest this works out really well with number one. After a lovely shave you want to finish the job off properly don’t you, you want to splash a bit of balm on to soothe and freshen up your now newly suave looking face.

This is where Miessence steps in, they are an innovative company focused on using Natural and Organic ingredients in products that work. Miessence are also 110% carbon negative, which means they offset more than they emit. So while freshening your face up you can feel proud you are doing your bit for the environment. With a couple of pumps to the fingertips, gently massage the face and shaved areas. This helps to calm razor burn and refreshes the skin. They also use marshmallow in this – so imagine that light and fluffy feel. Got to be worth a go right – treat yourself. . . . or him.


Three. – Hoodies with Purpose.

[Note] This entry is non affiliated, I was suggested to promote the product via a blogger on twitter. There is no personal gain from this.

Now I know what you are all thinking, Ross this weekend was a scorcher – who needs a new hoodie. Well this one is a must.

Firstly you want your man in comfort and fashion right, and to know he is doing his bit in support.

The C9 Foundation is a Scottish registered charity with their main purpose is to tackle Mental Health within grassroots football, with teams and their communities.

Run boy Colin and his awesome team, C9 is always striving to do the best, be the best and give the best back to the community and these hoodies and other clothing ranges, such as hats and shirts are one way of doing that. With the profits going to Mental Health charities, this hoodie really does have a purpose.

Of recent I have started to take an interest more and more in Mental Health blogging and support and without a shadow of a doubt I know Colin and his crew are doing and will continue to do an amazing job. Give him and them a follow on the following links:

Four. – The Pawfection Pack.

[Note] This entry is non affiliated, I asked if I could promote the product via a blogger on twitter. There is no personal gain from this.

This one is for the dog lover in your life, that person who’d treat his four-legged friend over himself any day and for good reason. The Pawfection team are a small local business based in Cambridgeshire – who try to deliver the best service and the most affordable pricing they can in their quirky, cute boxes.

But don’t take it from me – here is Annie’s bio blurb about the packs:

“We at The Pawfection Pack also believe in supporting as many small independent businesses as we can, just like us, I always think it’s great when you find fun, quirky items that aren’t readily available on the high street, there’s something very special about them, as well as supporting the people who make them.”

Offering several style of packs, memberships, subscriptions and one-off buys, there really is an option for anyone. You can find their links just here:

Now how is that for a handy guide, a selection of ideas, quirks and gift picks. Give them all a look, take them for a spin and treat that special someone right. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, learnt and lot and maybe even thought highly of me. I am always here to help.

Gift Guide to Fathers Day.

Leave a comment Standard

With Fathers day less than two weeks away I know there are some people out there that need to get their bums in gear and sort out a gift to celebrate daddy.

So here I am, your saviour, your guide!

Obviously the best gift you can get Papa is your presence, seeing him, giving him a moment of your time for the afternoon. We are all busy people in this day and age and so I am sure he would appreciate a couple of hours, just to catch up and be together.

But if we are going materialistic, because let’s be honest who doesn’t like getting gifts, I have put together a little list to try to help you out. So are you ready? Are you steady? Let’s go Shooopppiiing!


The  Amazon Echo

Look at this little cutie, I am a big fan of all this new Smart House Technology and Assistant Devices that are on the market. When we move into the “Family” home I am going to kit it out with all these gadgets. And that is the point, Men love gadgets – tinkering around with a new toy. Papa Bear would love one of these right.

 

 


Playstation VR Headset

Another cool gadget gift would have to be the VR headset. There are other brands and versions available but I have pick PlayStation’s as I have a PS4 myself. Not that Pop’s would want an excuse to leave you for a virtual world but let’s be honest again it’s boys and their toys. What is not to love. Plus I am sure you could have a go too.

 

 


Debossed notebook (A6)

A smart notebook or stationary is always a great shout for a Father’s Day gift. And what’s not to love with these Debossed Notebook’s from Jeya Narrative, with a range of amazing capital city design front’s you could be giving papa a sleek Manhattan notebook, a classic London design or one with a trendy hip Amsterdam front.

Different notebooks collect different stories. City notebooks are all the more special as they transport us to a memorable place and time, to relive those moments once again. – Jeya Narrative.

 

 


 

The Millennium Series: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

A good book is always a winner and in light of the new movie coming out I felt it only best to suggest The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series. If the old man like a good Nordic Noir like Wallander or Jo Nesbo then these are for him.

Following a computer hacker and a journalist as they are asked to help solve a case that is decades old they end up unearthing many twists and horrors that were thought to be left hidden. I couldn’t put them down and remember watching the Swedish Originals with my dad and I even took him to the cinema when the America Remake came out. Great story, read and idea. A must.

 

 


 

All else fails why not hit up the generic, bottle of Whiskey, Screwfix Voucher and Chocolate.

I hope this is helped drum up some ideas for the old boy. I am sure whatever you decide will be greatly accepted and enjoyed. Have a great day and spoil him rotten.

Peace!

 


Side note, the Amazon links are affiliated links so I would make a penny or two from you buying from that, but the Jeya Narrative stuff I am not being paid in any form for, I am just a friendly blogger promoting a friendly company. Just so you know.
