Win-It Wednesday: Phillips Norelco Shaver for Dad

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 4, 2014 · 119 comments

Sometimes practical gifts are the very best -- you know, those items that you've had for years and have really started to take for granted. They get the job done, even if you have to do a little extra to get it done right.

My husband's electric shaver was one of those items. I'd estimate it was going on at least 6 years old, and it still did a fairly decent job shaving his face daily, although he often had to go back over areas with a disposable razor, especially in the neck area.

So when Norelco offered to send me their Philips Norelco Shaver 8800, I figured it would be a great surprise for him! I didn't tell my husband it was coming and simply switched the old shaver out for this new one and waited to get his reaction...

It's safe to say that he loves it! Some of his comments include, "Wow, my skin is so smooth. It really follows the curves of your face," and "The charge lasts so much longer than my old razor!"

Other cool features of the Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 include:

  • Sleek masculine zinc liquid metal frame
  • Use dry or in the shower with shaving cream or gel
  • Full numeric display to show minutes remaining
  • Provides 60 minutes, or approximately 20 days of shaving time
  • Luxury pouch

The Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 would make a fabulous Father's Day gift!

My hubby is the only coffee drinker in our house. The filter part of his coffee maker is broken but he still continues to use it. It takes him a lot longer to make his coffee every day but he will not replace the machine!
