Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone checking this post out! I'll be totally honest, I LOVE Christmas! I love the lights, the trees, the excitement, and of course, the presents! But if you guys are like, me buying for Dad is no joke! So I've pulled together some of my favorite things for the Dad in your life!
1. Harrys Shaving Kits | $35
I love me a good shave! Even if when I do shave I look like I'm 11 when I do! But there is nothing worse than having to make an extra trip to the local grocery or pharmacy to grab some blades so you don't hack your face up while shaving! Cue the incredible shaving service Harry's- and their amazing Delux Shaving Kits that are on sale for just $35! You're going to get the razor, three blades, a beautiful sink stand, shaving cream, and a travel case! This is a must buy!Oh and they've recently released body washes and bars of soap that are just the best out there. Not to mention for the ladies out there, their company Flamingo has amazing shaving kids for you too! On a side note, this incredible company is always so generous with donating to my annual Sub4Santa- so if you're going to put your money behind a good company run by GREAT people, choose Harry's!
2. SprezzaBox | $28
Don't go to the local clothing store and just get your dad a tie. That's so 1999. We can do better, and with the help of Sprezza Box, we're going to really impress the dad in our life with not just a tie, but a whole new style! They guarantee over $100 worth of products for a flat fee of $28 for one box, or $25 for a monthly year-long subscription! The products in these boxes are specially curated by designers and industry leaders to give you the cutting edge accessories for your fashionable father. Sprezza Box will send you five or six items in each box and you don't have to sign on for an entire year or anything, you can give it a try and decide how you like it. If your dad has good style, or perhaps needs a style boost, get him a Sprezza Box!
3. Lander & BodyGuardz | $40
Guys I love smart companies that solve problems for things we use everyday. My phone is glued to my hand about 80% of the time, and so when I found these two new products from Lander and Body Guards, I knew I had to include them in this year's gift guide! Lander's ThermoLineTM Moab phone case is tested and proven to help protect your phone against the effects of climates from 0 to 120 F. This makes it perfect to withstand any temperature your adventurous dad might be in! The BodyGuardz's one-finger slide, SlideVue's doubles as a secure fingerloop or kickstand for watching videos. Two birds (or whatever we're supposed to say) and one phone! Both phones also have reinforced materials to show off the iPhone and absorb impact from drops. A total win!
4. JBL Charge 4 | $150
I love this speaker! It's perfect for the dad who works in the garage or yard or just likes to throw some Justin Bieber on and doing some wicked dad moves. The JBL Charge 4 portable Bluetooth speaker with full-spectrum, powerful sound and a built-in power bank to charge your devices. It features a proprietary developed driver and two JBL bass radiators that intensify sound with strong deep bass. Its high-capacity 7500mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery provides up to 20 hours of playtime. The speaker carries a convenient USB charge out to quickly charge your devices, such as your smartphone, so you will never run out of power. The Charge 4 features a rugged design, IPX7 waterproof rated exterior and comes in a suite of cool colors.
5. PowerUp Paper Plane | $150
I love a gift you can play with your kiddos and also turn some heads at the park! This is the world’s first smartphone-controlled paper airplane with a video camera and first-person view. PowerUp X-FPV lets you experience flight as if you were sitting in the cockpit of your very own paper airplane, but with no flying sickness! Using your phone with any head-mounted display or VR Goggles, you see what your plane sees, controlling your paper airplane with intuitive movements of your head. The Powerup FPV is iOS and Android compatible. It travels at speeds up to 20 mph with approximately 10 minutes of continuous flight time. How awesome is that? Out of a paper plane! The plane’s imbedded camera transmits a live video stream straight to the user’s smartphone with a range up to 300 ft. The company partnered with Parrot Drones to leverage their expertise in WiFi streaming and drone controls.
6. Outdoor Vitals Backpack | $100
Listen, I was never a huge camper or hiker, until recently. The two keys are: 1) finding the perfect person to go with and 2) getting the right gear! That's why I love this backpack from Outdoor Vitals! This backpack is ultra-tough, lightweight and highly usable in the field. It was designed to keep the most important features to cut down on weight, while using extremely strong and durable fabrics. This bag has everything including removable hip pockets for use with removable hood or to allow for attachment of bear spray. Two side compression straps to secure the load firmly on your back or to help secure belongings to the outside of the backpack. Hydration pack compatible. This has made camping and hiking a complete dream!
7. Owl Car Camera| $350
I love being in the car- and so any product that helps keep you safe and on guard is key for me! If your dad loves something that most other dads won't have, look at the Owl smart dash camera that sends video to your phone — whether driving or parked. It’s high-quality, easy-to-use, and features inside/outside-facing HD cameras that record a 14-day video sequence that you can access any time from your phone with its 4G LTE connection. With outstanding low light performance, an anti-theft security beacon, automatic flood light deterrent, video alerts, and more, Owl keeps you and your car safe no matter what life puts in your path.
