Fathers day is very nearly upon us and if you haven't started shopping for the man in your life then you are not alone. The bloke has very kindly offered to test a few fathers day gift ideas (it is really hard work living with a blogger sometimes), so check out his reviews below.
The Braun 380s-4 Electric Razor
What they say:
The new Braun Series 3 is the latest generation of the world's best selling foil shaver. The Series 3 is specifically designed for guys who don’t want to compromise. Thanks to its improved triple action free float system, increased motor speed and new SensoFoil™, the new Series 3 not only delivers even better shaving performance on 3-day beards, but is also incredibly smooth on skin. On top, the Series 3 Wet & Dry models (380s-4 and 340s-4) can even be used in the shower and with foams and gels! Last but not least, the Series 3 combines world-famous Braun Design with the highest Braun quality
What the bloke says:
There is no denying that this razor is more convenient than my usual handheld non-electric variety. I can use it quickly before work or in the shower and it takes no time at all to shave. I found that as Braun suggest, it is best on three day stubble as any more or less didn't give as clean a shave. Even on day three the shave wasn't as close as with a non-electric razor but Bex didn't seem to mind so nor did I. The convenience means I am shaving much more than I was. It looks and feels great and the design is modern and masculine. The trimmer was my favourite feature.
It is currently half price at Boots at £70 which I think is a great price.

What the bloke said:
I like the inclusion of the word essentials in this description as I find chocolate to be an essential part of fathers day. The box was huge and it was full of boxes of chocolates, truffles and a few bars too. The continental boxes were first to pass the taste test and they went down a treat. They were well presented and there was a great variety - something for every mood. There is far too much chocolate for one man so this is a gift best shared with the family (Ok, so I might have added this in myself).
You may have noticed that I love a good matchine outfit for the boys, and penguin clothing are a brand that are happy to indulge me this and more. Like father, like son, Penguin offers clothes for boys of all sizes and all three of mine were sent a Penguin top
What the bloke said:
I love penguins, and their clothing is pretty good too. I have quite a few of their T-shirts and was sent a new one to add to the collection. It isn't quite my colour in reality, but hopefully when I look a little less sunburnt it will look better. The children's tops look great though and they look pretty cute together in them. They are great quality, wash well and
