Blogmas Day 8 – Gift Guide for Her.

Comments 2 Standard

Saturday in this festive month. What have you done today? Christmas shopping maybe? Still stuck on what to get the Mrs / GF / Wife / Mum ? Then let me try (stress the word try) and help you out.

I take no responsibility for this list, you follow me instructions on the back of your own free will. Good luck! Also because of the House and the lack of money, me and the GF are not doing presents this year. The house and our company is more than enough . . . cop out right – but it’s going to be fine.

Disclaimer I think this list is going to be a wish list for my GF – I know she wants most of these.


Gift One.

Ugg Boots

Classic Short II Boot

Shoes are always a winner for women. Tough to buy I would say as you need to know sizes and styles. But what a gift if you get it right. Something that she can get a lot of use from and will really enjoy.

They say a woman can never have too many shoes – which I am still unsure if that is a real saying, but hey. I know from personal experience I love getting shoes as gifts because it’s something I don’t like to spend money on. I have a pair of shoes and will make them last as long as possible. So what is nicer than a fresh pair of pancakes. . . . no Crêpe – or Creps, sorry not down with the kids lingo.


Gift Two.

Art

Sparkle Gem Stone Frame

Yet another thing on the GF’s wish list – Artwork, or something decorative for the home. There is nothing the lady loves more than having a nice presentable showroom of a house. Like something from a NEXT HOME catalogue and why not. Of course you want to live in a lovely home and sometimes a nice piece of Art, a set of photo frames or a lush wallpaper will do the job. I am not saying buy her a pasting table and some brushes for Christmas but maybe a Token and a Promise to redecorate. That’s cute.


Gift Three.

Novelty T-Shirt

Mummy Elf Christmas T-Shirt

I have noticed these everything this year, a range of matching family festive tops. Guess what – I love them! I’d love to get the whole family in these at Christmas. Imagine the lady in your life rocking one of these tops or something similar on Christmas Day.

These are a bit of fun and they will go in a bag for the rest of the year under the bed. But it’s always good to have a quirky collection of festive clothes and what a way to start the collection.


Gift Four

Marvel Bag

Time for something for those dashingly sexy comic book geeks out there who rather something quirky and cool than something pink and glittery – I know that is a horrible jump to the conclusion and I don’t mean it. Everyone can love both.

But yes who cool does this bag look, imagine your daughter, GF or whomever rock up at School, Work or even into town proudly sporting a Captain America Shield Bag. They would look awesome as F. Or something along these lines. I can already think of a few people reading this that would be like “YES, I NEED THIS”. My sister being one and where is Larkin? She here? Fill your boots.


Gift Five

Day Out / Spa Day

Blissful Spa Day for Two

Can’t go wrong with a Spa Day – am I right. The opportunity for her to relax and do nothing while someone puts hot stones on them and covers them in mud. If it’s something they are into then treating her to something like this is always a winner.

And how thoughtful, cute or romantic does it look, treating her to a day out of relaxation and wearing fluffy robes. Think about it.


I do hope this guide has helped, for someone that can usually nail gifts I have struggled to put this guide together. Maybe I am losing my touch.

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.

A New Blogging Series – The Gadget Guide!

Leave a comment Standard

Gadgets

This is a little introductory post about a new series I am putting together called “The Gadget Guide”.

Where I’ll take recommendations, or find some quirky gadgets that I can review and make a guide about. Tackling manly gifts that can work as gift guides and ideas for boyfriends, sons and dad gifts. But also I’m also looking at house hold gadgets – Like that frying pan that cooks every part of a Full English in one go. How cool is that!

Rest assure though boys, I will take the plunge and review things that can be aimed to the opposite sex, so you can have a helping hand when searching for gifts for your lady friends, Mothers, Sisters and Lovers

Basically I will be taking on everything and anything,

The end goal is to treat myself to a Google Home device to review and sing its praises – because let’s be honest that little thing is awesome and I CAN’T WAIT to get one.

Partly the reason for this series is. . . because I am a guy and I love a good gadget. But also because I can sense you all need my help when it comes to gift giving which is something I nail. Christmas, pfft easy. Birthdays KA-POW. Baby Showers – done and done. So now it’s time to share my knowledge with you all.

So that’s me – short and sweet just to keep you in the loop. But know I need to work out what the first review is going to be. I have had a little look on Amazon to see what I could work with. Any suggestions or if there is something you want to see reviewed by a somewhat trusting, charming and funny guy (that’s me) let me know. I love a challenge and let’s be honest this is going to be a hoot.

Peace and Love my beautiful followers.
