The latest instalment of the Mamma Fairy gift guide is here including a few ideas here for the men in our lives.
1 – George Foreman Grill
We have one of these for many years and I find it so handy for quick tasty wraps and Panini’s. The one pictures is the 5 portion grill and priced around €60. A good investment in my opinion. Most models have the standard features of the grill channel where the grease drains away into a separate tray. This makes for easy cleaning and healthier cooking. Most also can recline flat for toasties or slightly elevated for meat (enabling the fat to drain).
George Foreman grills are very readily available in electrical retailers throughout the country.
2 – Remington Gift Set
I know where a certain person reads this he will instantly know this is for him!! Known as the Gentleman’s Gift set! (bet he is having a good laugh now!!).
3 – Zenji & the Muzzy bugs book
I was first introduced to this book by the author, the lovely Aisli Madden. Aisli herself, wrote, illustrated and funded the book herself (via a Kickstarter campaign) after becoming interested in mindfulness herself. The premise of this book is to purposely promote positive mental health from infancy through the characters as they go about their business incorporating breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques. The illustrations in this book really stand out.
My 3 year has really taken to this book, the vivid illustration captures his attention (no mean feat), also for him I find the names and variety of characters hold his interest. Not an easy thing to do in a book these days, captivate a child like this one does. It would make a lovely and practical present. The book is currently available through Amazon.
4 – Fuschia Make up.
Fuschia make is an award winning Irish make up brand. Since the early days my sister and myself have been fans having been introduced to the brand just before my own wedding back in 2011. They do a fab mineral foundation with great lasting power. Their lip sticks are also a good safe bet if you are looking for good colour pay off without the Charlotte Tilbury price tag. I am a fan of matte lipsticks so my staple is Bare truth. Totally digressing there but back on track, in my humble opinion a gift of Fuschia gift set, you cant go wrong. The set I am gifting is the colour pop, to a lovely lady who loves her lip stick and is not afraid to experiment with colour (unlike me!!). The gift set is currently reduced to €25 and available from their website.
