Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D electric razor
We tried out the new Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D electric razor and right away we noticed some improvements. First, the numeric LED display on the front of the razor comes up as soon as you turn it on, and right away you know how many more minutes of charge you have left up to 60 minutes. It also alerts you about cleaning and replacement heads. The also added suction cups at the bottom of the charging unit so that it stays put on the counter.
More importantly, however, is that the unit still sports the GyroFlex design which makes for a very comfortable shave. The round heads flex, pivot and tilt to make it easy to move the razor around your face and easily hit each spot. This design sets this electric razor apart and we think most guys will love it.
The razor has many other features as well. The UltraTrack heads are built to capture hairs of all sizes for the most effective shave. It’s also a wet & dry shaver and has a skin friendly precision trimmer for you sideburns. Finally, the EasyGrip design makes this electric razor very easy to use as it fits perfectly in your hand.
This is a premium razor and makes an excellent gift for any guy on your list, including yourself!

Lugz Allerton Sneakers
We’re big fans of the casual shoes and sneakers from Lugz and we recently tried out the Allerton high-top sneakers in grey pictured above. Like all of the shoes from Lugz they’re very comfortable and look very stylish. The Allertons feature a canvas upper, cotton drill lining, cushioned insole and rubber outsole.
The muted dark grey color with the white outsoles make the Allerton sneakers a great option with jeans or other casual slacks and they work for most weather settings. Check them out for yourself along with all of the other selections available at the Lugz online store. If you have a guy on your gift list who can use some casual shoes or sneakers then you’ll find tons of great gift ideas there as well.

As video recording devices get smaller, we’re getting to the point where we can easily record countless aspects of our lives.

BRAVEN 625s portable speaker unit
We reviewed BRAVEN speakers earlier this year, and now we had the chance to check out the 625s. This version is encased in a rugged, shock-absorbing exterior with aluminum grills that let listeners take this tough speaker on the go. All of the BRAVEN speakers are portable but the 625s is ideal for outdoor settings and for travel. It comes with a waterproof bag, USB flashlight, and up to 16 hours of continuous play.
As we noted last time, these speakers produce excellent sound and you can also string them together to make the sound even more robust. They’re perfect for impromptu parties or even for casual listening regardless of where you find yourself. Now with the 625s you can feel even more comfortable taking it anywhere.
The Braven 625s (or frankly any other Braven models) offers a great stocking stuffer for plenty of people on your list. It’s obviously perfect for young people but it’s also great for those of us who grew up in the boom box days when people shared music experiences as opposed to wearing headphones and staying in their own little world.
