We all know that jocks and socks are a necessity in Dad’s life, but they are pretty boring. Here are some ideas to help show you have put some real thought into his gift.
Thanks to Remington, gifting just got a whole lot easier with the choice of two state of the art shavers that will be sure to please any dad. If your dad is a guy on the go, the 100% waterproof Remington Power Series WETech Shaver is the perfect present. Safe to use wet or dry, this shaver works efficient grooming magic in the shower for mornings when time is of the essence. The WETech charges in just four hours to give 60 minutes run time and features an easy-to-use pop up trimmer to detail sideburns and facial hair. RRP AU$99.95 Alternatively, for a dad who enjoys premium functionality, you can’t go wrong with the Remington SmartEdge Advanced Foil Shaver, a unique combination of all that’s great about both rotary and foil shaving to grant the best of both worlds.
The hybrid shaving system simultaneously pre-trims longer hairs, while lifting and cutting shorter hairs from any angle. The addition of a unique pivoting neck that seamlessly adapts to facial contours, an open arched blade design for reduced vibration and noise during use and Remington’s 100% waterproof technology – that can be used wet or dry – makes this advanced shaver perfect for a convenient, irritation-free shave.

Designed to be interchangeable, the woven nylon straps are available for individual purchase.
The void watch series come with a sand blasted surface treatment giving the case a sophisticated, matte appearance. Sapphire crystal provides greater resistance against scratches and protection to the crisp, high contrast LCD display underneath while extra detailing includes premium grade Italian leather straps with calf leather lining and custom-made stainless steel buckles. www.voidwatches.com
