Christmas is around the corner and if you’re wondering what to get to treat yo’ poppa, we’ve highlighted some awesome items that should do the trick for your old man!
Man Stand Organiser
Price: R749 from Mantality
While male lives aren’t too complicated, we do have a ton of things to keep track of. This wooden organiser is a god-send for a bedside table, turning it into a James Bond-esque preparation stand where you have your smartphone, watch, bracelets, or any other paraphernalia neatly laid out and ready for each day.
DJI Mavic Mini drone
Price: from R6,999 (available mid-November)
Weighing just 249 grams, DJI says the Mavic Mini is super portable, easy to fly, and designed for safety, making it the perfect drone for that dad who loves flying and gadgets. The drones small size and safety features in many areas exempts it from regulations that apply to other, heavier drones, and incorporates DJI’s renowned safety technology, a 2.7K camera, and 30 minutes of flight-time.
Plantur 39 Colour Brown shampoo & conditioner
Are your dad of those guys that’s tackling those pesky greys on a daily basis (unless he’s going for the whole ‘silver fox’ look)? Completely dying one’s hair may be a little overkill and isn’t actually great for your hair, so instead, check out Plantur 39’s Colour Brown shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo itself helps activate and brighten your natural hair colour (so those whiter hairs turn a little darker with each wash), while also injecting your hair with some good ole caffeine, helping reduce hair loss and stimulate growth. It’s a simple, natural way at getting colour back.
Price: R219 from The Wallet Co.
While having a chunky wallet can be a good thing (because, you know: money), the reality is that our wallets are usually filled with business cards, coupon vouchers, and till slips, rather than the Mandela-laden notes we wish were in there. Having an oversized wallet is cumbersome, obtrusive, and to be honest, unnecessary. In the age of mobile payment systems and the declining need for cash, a more streamline and minimal wallet solution is usually the best option, so it’s worth checking out The Wallet Co.‘s Compact Wallet. This pint-sized card and cash holder is essentially the same dimensions as any common bank card, meaning that your wallet is just as big as it needs to be, literally.
Price: from R1,180
If your dad is looking for the basic functions of a smartwatch without all the complications and hefty price-tag, the Cogito Classic is a great place to start. Designed by award-winning French designer Xavier Houy, the Cogito Classic strips away the excessive functions in favour of prioritising the connection to your phone for notifications, good battery-life, and controlling media on your device.
Philips Series 9000 electric razor
Price: from R3,900
The 900 series electric razor is said to be the most advanced Philips has ever made. The three independent rotating heads each move in 8 different directions for better contouring of your face. Philips claims this captures 20% more hair in every pass, and it definitely seems the case as it provided us with a close, clean and rash-free shave. Also, one of the unique components of the new 9000 series, is a combination charger and cleaning system for the blades of your shaver.
JBL Flip 4
Price: from R1,599
Music-loving dads will get a kick out of cracking out some Rolling Stones or Queen on JBL’s Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker.
