Every year I find it harder and harder to buy gifts for the adults in our family. Mainly because when I ask them what they want they say ” Nothing just spend the money on the kids” . This is a nice thought but I still like to get them something little. Just a gesture to say thank you for everything they have done over the past 12 months. Both mine and Jordan’s family are really supportive and help us out when we need it. So I think it’s only right we say thank you. So here are a few gift ideas that I think you will find interesting. They range in price to suit everyone’s pocket. Make sure you read to the end of the post as there is a giveaway.
Braun series 5 razor
Long beards seem to be a thing of the past and once again men are having a shave . Hooray I say I’m not a big lover of a big busy beard . If you other half has made this change then the Brain series 5 Electric foil saver is a one to get . Or if they are still going with the beard then they can still use this too !. Which I think is fab as Jordan goes from having a beard to not . So in the past he is unable to use a shaver to keep his beard tamed as they just don’t work very well with beards.
The other great thing about this razor is that it is 100% waterproof so they can use it in the shower. Meaning no more sinks full of beard hair . They can use it in the shower and wash it away .
This razor will leave your skin feeling fresh afterwards. No dry sore patches as the shaver head contours to your face for maximum skin contact. It also comes with a clean and charge station. Which ensures your shaver is kept nice and clean until you next use it.
There are some fantastic deals around on this particular shaver . Boots are selling it for £79.99 reduced from £200 !
Wild Sea Notecards
I’m a lover of anything stationery so I do like to buy it for others. There is always the need for new stationery right ! I don’t know if it’s a sign of getting older but more and more I’m needing to send cards for an occasion. So these wild sea Notecards are perfect for that. Each card has a beautiful print on them which are based on the wild and edible seaweeds of Ireland.
Maybe you buy for someone who has their own business and sends cards to clients regularly. Then these cards would be perfect for them.
Colour Changing Unicorn Mug
Unicorns aren’t just for children I know many adults who love these mythical creatures . This colour changing mug would make a perfect gift for them. Maybe you take part in a Secret Santa and need a small gift to send someone well this would fit that criteria perfectly.
