Christmas Guide: Dads

Christmas Guide: Dads

November 25, 2014

Mr Boo celebrates his birthday in September following that I have three months to think about what to get him for Christmas. Usually just as I have an idea of which music CD he wants or Blu-Ray he comes home from work with it and I find myself having to re-think his Christmas presents all over again.

This year I have decided to steer clear of entertainment ideas and opting for a more practical approach. I know you are probably thinking that practical is boring but Mr Boo never buys himself anything he needs, unless it is the latest Fifa game ;-). So take a look at some great gifts for Dads this Christmas

Braun Series 7

For the man who needs to up, dressed and out in the mornings – the gift of a fantastic shaver…

Dad - Braun Series 7

The most advanced shaver ever released by Braun – with more computing technology than NASA’s Apollo 11. It’s ideal for the man who demands perfection. The Braun Series 7 captures more hair with every stroke providing that just-shaved feeling of smooth skin for longer.

Price: RRP £249.99 – although currently on offer at just £99.00

Marvel & DC Comics Clothing

There is something about Marvel and DC Comics that make men relive their youth, transported back to playing superman with a tea towel tied around their shoulders. With the release of many comic related films over the past few years Marvel and DC Comics have really made a comeback, so why not treat Dad to a pair of Spiderman PJ’s or some super hero socks!

The set contains all the washroom kit needed to smell and look great including 250g Body Soak Crystals, 200ml Shower Gel, 100ml Hair & Body Wash, 100ml Body Lotion, 50ml Aftershave Balm, all in a super stylish weekend bag.

Personalised Enamel Treats Tin

Mr Boo loves his cookies, especially dipped in his morning coffee… however Tigger also loves Daddy’s cookies and thinks that as they are in the biscuit box they are free for him to munch on whenever he is offered a biscuit – Daddy disagrees so this Christmas I have found the perfect thing to help save Mr Boo’s cookies disappearing. 

Dad - Personalised Enamel Treats Tin

Getting Personal have a range of different personalised enamel tins but this treat tin was my favourite. Available in classic cream however the text colour and wording can be personalised. So whether you what ‘Treats for Daddy’ or ‘Grandpa’s nibbles’ I’m sure that these will be very welcomed come Christmas morning – especially if you pop a few treats inside.

Price: £31.99
