Golf Ball Cleaner

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

Golf Ball CleanerIf you’re really stuck for something to get your dad this Father’s Day and he’s into golf then you could get him this golf ball cleaner from Next. Ok so it’s not the greatest gift you could give your dad but let’s face it, they’re really hard people to buy for so at least this is a practical gift that he will probably get a lot of use out of.

All you need to do is insert any standard size golf ball into the transparent plastic area and place the top on, the motorised bristles will then clean off any dirt and your dad can’t blame his dirty golf balls for his bad round! The cleaner can be filled with water and washing up liquid to really get the balls sparkling clean.

This golf ball cleaner costs £13 and is available on the Next website.

20% Off Silverstone Ferrari Experience

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Silverstone FerrariWould your Dad want to drive a Ferrari 360 at Silverstone – Britain’s F1 Grand Prix venue? I know mine would and now there’s a possibility that he might since they are currently offering the day out for £175. Drivers who go on this experience day will learn the racing lines and be given tips by an instructor, they will then test the track out for themselves in a Lotus Exige. After 4 laps in the Lotus they will take the wheel of the Ferrari.

Once in the Ferrari 360 the driver will get 4 laps to test the power of this fantastic racing car. This once in a lifetime gift is available at Lastminute.com and you will need to order before Tuesday June 12 to ensure your dad receives his voucher before Father’s Day.

Water Bomb Launcher

Monday, June 4th, 2007

Water Bomb LauncherIs your dad a bit of a big kid? If so then this could be the ideal Father’s Day present. It is a water bomb launcher that slings the balloon 120 feet into the air and this can be achieved by just one person. Imagine the scene in the garden if you had a few of these, adults rolling around the floor trying to launch their water bombs first. Summer is on its way and if your dad is into BBQ’s with his friends then this could make one hilarious afternoon. It looks like quite good exercise as well!

The launcher made by WildSling and costs just £11.95, about 150 balloons are also included with the set. Available at Prezzybox.

Your Life in Hardback

Monday, June 4th, 2007

photobookandclosedtin.jpgI’ve seen a lot of adverts around for personalised photo books recently. I think they are a great modern take on the photo album. The idea is that you send in a selection of your favourite snaps and they are turned into a classy coffee table book. The books are hard backed and properly bound. They are made using high quality paper and the photos are treated for red eye, date stamp removal and are restored to ensure they look like they are straight from a publishers printing house.

The books even come in a personalised presentation box or tin. These books are a wonderful idea to celebrate an important life event such as a wedding or christening. I think they would be a great gift to give to someone on returning from a holiday, a book displaying what you got up to is so much better than a postcard or a tacky souvenir. They start at £49 for an A5 sized book and you can order one from www.bagsoflove.co.uk

Father’s Day Cufflinks

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Father’s Day CufflinksFather’s Day is coming up on 17th June and there are many special gifts you can buy for your Dad this year. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show him you care, but obviously you can if you want to! I have just seen these cute little cufflinks on GettingPersonal.co.uk, ideal if you are male and stuck for ideas.

They are individually hand decorated, produced on fine bone china tile inserts and come neatly packaged in a small blue case. The cufflinks cost just £14.95 and will probably be treasured by your dad for the rest of his life.

Send Someone Back In Time

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

If you know someone who has just about everything money could possibly buy and you’re stuck for what to buy then this present is unlikely to be something they’ve already got. Probably best for older generations (who’ll appreciate it more), a real newspaper from the day they were born will take them back in time – who else can compete with a pressie like that!

Choose any date in the last 100 years and receive an original newspaper that has been carefully stored away until now. Just be careful they didn’t have a mum like mine, who actually kept the newspaper from the day I was born! Apparently the headline read 3 million people unemployed – let’s hope whoever you buy this present for had a more exciting first day alive!

You could also use this present for other special occasions such as your wedding day or just a memorable day. Available for £35 from Buy A Gift.

Aged To Perfection

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

I came across this ‘Aged To Perfection’ T-Shirt today and decided it was a perfect gift for Father’s Day! Even though Father’s Day is a while away yet (17th June) I often find it really hard to shop for men and end up buying some extremely dull gift such as socks or golf tees, so this year I wanted to get something different. Granted it is only a T-Shirt, but I think dads everywhere would be proud to receive this from their daughter!

At £16.95 it will set you back more than the golf tees, but won’t exactly make a whole in your pocket! Available in one size, fitting up to 46” chest, from Presents Direct.

The Most Personal Gift You Can Give!

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

DNA ArtworkHere’s a gift idea that you can guarantee they don’t have already! A piece of modern art presenting their own personal DNA. You can even choose the colour it’s produced in as well as the size it comes in. It’s a very cool idea using very new technologies that combine science with art.

In short, you swab your mouth, send it off, it goes through a process of reading your DNA, it gets printed onto a canvas, and then all you need to do is hang it on the wall!

They also offer the DNA CODE – this is a crystal block with your unique generic code etched by laser into the centre. Check out www.dna-artuk.com for more information.

Scrummy Chocolate Fountain

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Chocolate FountainIf you enjoy hosting parties throughout the year and like people coming to your house then why not really spoil your guests by treating them to a luxurious chocolate fountain. Whether it’s a birthday, engagement party or just a get together with your friends, a chocie fountain could really get the party started.

For my 21st birthday I borrowed my boyfriend’s Mum’s fountain and we used dairy milk, mmnmnnnm! We chopped up pieces of banana (my personal favourite), strawberries, grapes and marshmallows and arranged cocktail sticks on a plate. My guests were delighted and the kitchen was rarely empty! If you’re on a diet then this probably isn’t the best idea; the chocolate gets lovely and warm and is extremely addictive.

If you would like to purchase a chocolate fountain, there is one available at Prezzybox for £39.95 – trust me it’s totally worth it.

Own a Piece of the Moon

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

The MoonApparently you can actually buy an acre of land on the moon and give it to someone as a gift. Maybe a little outrageous for a birthday present but if you know someone interested in astronomy; imagine how much they would appreciate this idea.

I think it’s a fantastic scheme and definitely something I would look into participating in myself. As well as owning part of the moon, you can also order land deeds for planets Mars and Venus, there is even a range of novel space related gifts to accompany your acre.

The gift pack includes the lunar deeds, constitution and bill of rights, lunar site map to show you where your property is located, a transcript of the Declaration of Ownership and all the appropriate documents so you can prove the land is yours! The gift is available at MoonEstates.com for just £16.75 per acre and would make a unique, personalised gift for any special occasion.
