Perfect presents for the man in your life and a giveaway 341



I adore my husband.  I have spent nearly  half of my life with him and I hope to grow old with him by my side.  As the years have past I have learned lots about him and also lots about my gift buying for him.  Never buy him clothes.  I buy what I would like him to wear rather than what he really likes to wear!  Times have changed and when we were younger and have duel incomes he really wanted for nothing.  If he saw something he liked then he would buy it for himself, but now we have little spare cash and he actually has a wish list again, which makes present buying much easier.

He will turn 47 when we are in the US and my brother and sister in law are giving us the gift of time.  Yes we are going to have an evening out on our own without the boys and this will be the first time since Mum died that we have had the pleasure of each others company without our sidekicks.  Other things on his wishlist are:

Fatface Lounge Pants

Hubby loves the weight of Fat Face PJ bottoms.  They are his go to pants and they last and last.  He has some that are eight years old.  Yes at £35 they are rather expensive, but per wear they are great value.

A Tie Slide

Now don’t tell him, but this is what I have bought him for his birthday.  He wears a suit everyday for work and he has a couple of slides (one gold and one silver) which he cherishes and I took my watch to the local jeweler to have the battery changed and saw this sterling silver slide and got it put aside for him earlier in the year.  I know that he will wear this and think of me.  The only other jewelry he wears is his watch and wedding ring.

Slippers

These are not just any slippers, these are the royals royce of slippers provided by Canterbury Sheepskin.  They are hand made by a team of artisans in its Redwood factory in Christchurch, New Zealand.   Normally he would wear a pair from Clarks and they wouldn’t last.  The Chris Slippers that he has are £74.06 and are superbly made.  What is remarkable is the removable and replaceable insole unit that means the life of the slipper can be extended over several winters.  He actually can not wait to slip his feet in to his slippers once he gets home from work.   All boot styles and slippers can be viewed on their website www.canterburysheepskin.co.uk or you can purchase products via their webshop. http://shop.canterburyleather.com/

Kelly Kettle

What man or boy doesn’t like fire.  MadDad has been lusting over a Kelly Kettle for a couple of years now, especially when watching Maxi play football at the weekend.   This will certainly be on his christmas list and I hope he is delighted when he finds out this is what we have bought him for Christmas.
