When you’re gift shopping for the family, you’ll likely have an electric gift request or two on the wish-list. So to help make it easy, here’s a list of the best electrics you can give your loved ones this Christmas from Philips, to ensure they’ll love it and use it all year long…
No matter who is still on your ‘to-buy’ list this year I’ve got some great gift recommendations that they’ll love. It’s the time of year when we get to spoil those we hold near and dear, so naturally you’re going to want to give them an amazing gift. And if you want something that makes a statement and shows you’ve got them at heart, then why not pick from a selection of electrical gifts that won’t just be great on Christmas morning, but fantastic all year long?
Think that an electric gift sounds right up your/their street, but not sure what to get? Here’s a few suggestions for Him, Her and them to help you on you shopping way. Just call me Santa’s little helper…
Philips Lumea Advanced
Nothing could say ‘luxury beauty gift ‘ more than the Philips Lumea Advanced. And if you’re buying for a hard-core beauty fan this Christmas then they’ll likely have heard about at-home IPL kits already. The joy with this one is that it’s the Advanced option and using this means you can be hair-free for up to 3 months at a time. The Lumea works by delivering pulses of light directly to the hair follicle, which works to stop it producing hair as much or as often. Overall this means you can expect to see hair-free results within less than two months and in a survey people said they saw 85% less hair within only 3 sessions (bi-weekly at home.) So if hair-removal is something your loved ones would be interested in, then this is the way to go. It’s easy to use and the lower legs only takes 15 minutes at a time and there’s a nifty skin sensor that guides the whole process. You’ll also only need to use the system every other week for 4 sessions and then afterwards you just need a top up session every 3-4 weeks thereafter. It’s not a huge commitment to give someone the opportunity to reduce their body hair, which some find causes problems and/or makes life difficult. So give them a gift they’ll find practical and makes a luxury beauty statement too.
Philips ProtectiveClean Electric Toothbrush
A practical electrical gift for the lady in your life (think Mums, aunts, sisters and daughters) is the Philips ProtectiveClean in pink. Because nothing makes you want to brush your teeth more than a gorgeous pink toothbrush, right? This one especially will help her to really enjoy teeth brushing time and know she’s got the best oral hygiene she can. The brush itself is proven to whiten teeth in just one week thanks to its unique and compact brush head and there’s three different modes and intensities as well as a pressure sensor which lets you know if you’re pressing too hard. This means you can customise your brushing session to your own teeth and gums – making it the best clean you’ll get. One of the modes is a Gum Care mode which is developed to care for sensitive gums, which is great if you find the area to be sensitive. It also has a light monitor to let you know when it’s time to replace the brush head and it comes with a special travel case so you can easily take it with you when you’re on your travels. Anyone would love a Philips ProtectiveClean Toothbrush but the pink especially is a perfect choice for the women on your gift-list this Christmas.
Philips One Blade
My husband has been after a new shaver for a while and it’s (don’t tell him) what Santa will be leaving under the tree for him this year. So I feel I’ve spent hours researching the best on the market for men this Christmas as a top electric gift choice. My first option to recommend would be the Philips One Blade which is a budget-friendly way of giving the gift of a good shave. It’s an electric shaver which can be used wet or dry, it’s got a great battery life of over 45 minutes (which lasts forever if you only need a few minutes at a time) and it’s got 3 different stubble settings so no matter what length of facial hair your man has got, this will help trim it down. It’s also got three attachments and a razor head that’s perfect for stubble (although it can technically trim any length of hair) and therefore I know my husband would love this as he goes for the rugged stubble look on the daily but doesn’t like the hair long enough to be considered a beard. And the best part? It’s only £26.99 – many other shavers are triple the price and still only offer the same specifications, so this is a great option for those on a budget who still want to give an excellent and recommended product.
Philips Series 6000 Shaver
If you’ve got a bigger budget for your electric gift this year then keep it in the Philips Shaver family and invest in the Philips Series 6000 shaver. This shaver is the creme-de-la-creme of shavers and it’s guaranteed to give them a huge smile on Christmas morning. It has three round multi-precision blades that rotate super fast at the same time and cut down both long and short hair together – this includes super short stubble. Because all lebths are cut down in one action, there’s no need to revisit the area with different attachments or extra time needed. The head itself is rotational too which means it bends to the contours of the face (very clever) and so creates a closer more precise and custom shave as it allows the head to really get into the skin pockets and contours. The way the blades rotate in addition to this flexible head means you get very little resistance so it’s very comfortable when used, which I can imagine is really important for a daily shave. Another reason this makes a great electric gift for him this year is that it can be used wet or dry and washed under the tap! Which sounds obvious but actually, not many razors can be – I know my husband will appreciate being able to rinse his daily as he goes. And because you can do this with it, it also means it’s suitable for wet and dry shaving so I guess he could even use it in the shower if he wanted to. And as a bonus fact for you – the device fully charges in one hour and has one hour of usage per charge – which saves the need to charge before each use, as my husband currently has to with his existing razor. Pretty high performance and very good sounding right?
Philips Azur Elite Iron
If you’re shopping for a couple whether they be newly-weds or celebrating a recent house move or house purchase then the Philips Azur Elite Iron would be a great electric gift and something very practical that they can both use throughout the year. Ever heard of a Smart-Iron? Well this is as close as you could get to such a thing – it doesn’t require any settings as it’s got a nifty inbuilt tool that recognises the type of fabric you’re ironing, whether it’s tough like jeans or delicate like satin, and it adjusts itself accordingly which also guarantees no burns, ever. So now there’s no excuse for him to get out of the ironing! As well as this it’s got an inbuilt steam release that works together and releases the perfect amount of steam to ease the job and get it done as well, and as quickly, as possible. Which removes those laborious Sunday nights ironing the week’s shirts for your husband/boyfriend/partner! (Tell me it’s not just me?!) I like it because when I’m moving it around slowly it knows the speed is lower so it produces more steam as it knows I’m working on creases and wrinkles and adjusts the steam levels to help get them out faster – how cool is that?! While giving the gift of an iron might not sound like the best electric gift option at first, actually you’re giving a quick and better iron so that the recipient can spend more time doing all the things they enjoy rather than being stuck behind the ironing board. And that’s a gift I can get behind as a wife and mother for sure!
Philips Avance Blender
Another great electric gift for them, or anyone who appreciates food and nutrition really, is the Philips Avance Blender. This amazing, top of the range blender means you can make any smoothie you like and take it with you on the go. It’s got three settings and the best one for the perfect smoothie is the ‘vacuum smoothie mode’ – there’s also variable speed settings so that you can change the level used depending on the type of food you’re blending – softer modes for things like soft fruit and harder modes for veg etc. The blender itself is one of the very best for finely blending all your chosen ingredients together to give you that proper smoothie texture that you crave – no lumps or bumps, no air bubbles, everything is perfectly blended, smooth and ready for you to eat/drink. It’s what makes this blender a cut above others out there. Also from a practical point of view, the jar and the blades are fully detachable and dishwasher safe, so they’re easy to wash and you can use it daily or as frequently as you would want to. If you know someone who likes healthy eating, smoothie making or takes an extra interest in nutrition then they’d love this. My Mum is a very healthy eater and this is going to be her Christmas present and I know she’ll think Santa’s done very well…*daughter brownie points*
So if you’re looking for a great electric gift that’s going to put you in the good books all year round, then Philips have a whole range of options no matter who you’re buying for this year. What’s more is that because it’s Philips, everyone has the confidence in their products being the highest performance and the best for your money. I’m hoping Santa’s little elves read this post too, because although I’ve stocked up for my own family with these gifts, I’d still very much like to find a Philips gift or two under my tree for myself this year, namely the amazing Philips Steam & Go which I used on my honeymoon and LOVED! And one of the Philips Wake-up Lights would also be AMAZING.*hint hint Santa*
