Dads love gadgets, anything to make their lives that tiny bit easier is a massive bonus, so these great gadgets are a real must have this fathers day.
QVC have some fantastic things on offer, from the elegant and ever loved record player, to the ipods touches and the garden chairs with cup holders. They really do have something for everyone this year, at truly affordable prices. Take this 16GB Ipod nano with bluetooth, FM radio and fitness functions. The humble Ipod has come along way over the years, they have produced something that not only play all our favourite music, but you can now track fitness and look at photos. All whilst out and about!
It comes is a variety of colours and QVC even have the touch version which includes thousands of apps, now that would keep him entertained for hours. I know my husband loves anything that plays games.
Getting music onto these beauties is so easy, simply upload your favourite CDs to itunes on the PC/laptop or even download from the itunes store, plug in your Ipod and add the music you want and there you have it! Perfect.
Who isn’t looking for the perfect razor for the perfect shave? Well my husband is forever on the look out for the next best thing. For that completely irritation free shave, I think he has finally found it with the Braun series 5. This incredible electric razor does everything you would expect, it glides easily over the skin, with its flex motiontec head it really does glide over really easily. I had a play, although apparently its not going anywhere near my legs. The twin foils and integrated cutting systems means it can get really close to the skin as well as making sure all those hairs are reached. meaning he doesn’t have to drag it over his skin multiple times, which also helps reduce the irritation.
With 7 LED indicators you know exactly how much charge it has left, although with a minute 5 minute charging time, you won’t be worrying about that anyway. The Braun series 5 is currently on offer at £99.99, which is an amazing price for such a fantastic electric shaver.
I know hubby wouldn’t be without his now and it doesn’t take any nagging at all to get him to go and have a shave. Extra bonus.
Karcher. One thing men love is cleaning. Okay, one thing men love is cleaning with a powerful pressure washer. Preferably outside. This Karcher K2 Compact is perfect for all that heavy duty cleaning when you aren’t blessed with space. For ages we have wanted a pressure washer, it makes cleaning the car really easy, who doesn’t need that? However we don’t really have space for the larger pressure washers, but this one is different. Its really compact and fits nicely in the garden shed. “Included with the machine is a trigger gun, 4m high pressure hose, one way lance, detergent suction facility and a dirtblaster lance which provides up to 50% greater cleaning power than a standard high pressure lance.”
The K2 compact is also great for cleaning patios. Something I have always oddly wanted to do. It works with just a normal garden hose, meaning even my husband could use one. The Karcher K2 Compact retails for around £119 and would make a fantastic gift. For Dads and Mums!
The Vibe audio Bluetooth speaker. If men like anything its noise. Making is especially. So this Bluetooth speaker from Vibe is fantastic. We have even used it in the car to make the sat nav louder! Genius. Its so simple to to use, simply link up with your phone/device though the Bluetooth, choose some tunes of even an app and hey presto, you now have your own portable sound system.
Whether you’re looking for something to get him into the kitchen for washing up duties, or even upping the sat nav volume so you can have your tunes a little louder in the car, the Vibe audio Bluetooth speaker is perfect. It’s also super easy to charge and lasts ages!
Another great thing for Vibe is the slick grip 5 in 1 tablet case. This case is great. Made from silicone it goes on super easy. It has great, almost handles either side, so it makes holding the tablet really easy. The back is designed to stand up the tablet. Making viewing really easy. Also the case actually amplifies the sound as it surrounds the speaker so its concentrated. The slick grip also has a fabulous back to the case. It makes it easy to use it for typing on the go. Something that is not always so easily done.
Lastly is this fab new app from Co-Pilot. This app is a really get sat nav. You can often spend a fortune of getting a sat nav when in actual fact all you need is this app! Who doesnt have a smartphone these days? Co-pilot is not only really easy to use, it is also really clear. You have the ability to zoom in and out when you need that extra bit of help. Also when on the motorway the road can often just divide and it can be hard to tell which lane you should be in. With co-pilot it comes with an arrow showing just which lane you should be in, meaning you can know the exact way to go. The app also reroutes you depending on traffic data, meaning it will take you the quickest route depending on the time of day and traffic updates.
Saying that, you don’t always have to be connected to the internet to use it. So the signal dipping is no longer a problem. Hubby loves this app, it starts from £19.99 which is a much better investment than an expensive sat nav.
