The Philips Norelco shaver 9700 is the best electric shaver I’ve had yet. I’ve been a long time user of Norelco shavers. I’ve tried nearly all the models (and yes you get what you pay for!) but when I was offered to try out the 9700 – this is like the lexus of electric razors – I jumped at it. But there is a sale on amazon on them (notice the coupon by the add to cart button).
This is a work of art and a beast all rolled into one… the idea of the self cleaning station is amazing. The shave I got from this unit was by far better then my prior 8000 series by a mile.
Even they state the 9000 series cuts hairs up to 30% closer to skin with its V-Track precision blades*. The shaving heads, with contour detect technology, move in 8 directions to cut up to 20% more hair in a single pass.
There are four major features they talk about…
Contour Detect Technology
With the unique Contour Detect Technology, each shaving head independently moves in 8 directions to follow your face’s every curve. This improved contouring helps cut up to 20 percent more hair in a single pass.
V-Track Precision Blades
The newly designed V-Track Precision Blades collect hair in the optimal cutting position, resulting in a more comfortable shave that’s 30 percent closer. The blades also self-sharpen to ensure a premium shave day after day.
Personal Comfort Settings
For a more personalized shave, Shaver 9700 offers 3 comfort settings so you can choose the speed that best fits your skin and hair type. Slow: for an even more skin-friendly shave, Medium: for a standard thorough shave, and Fast: for a high-powered shave
SmartClean PRO System
At the touch of a button, the SmartClean PRO keeps your shaver like new every day. Its advanced multi-display indicator tracks the progress of the shaver through each step in the SmartClean cycle. With an alcohol-free, skin-friendly formula, the SmartClean system cleans hair, foam and gel through a unique dual-filtration system. The system also lubricates the shaver’s blades to reduce friction and keep your blades in top condition. After each cycle, the SmartClean system also thoroughly dries and charges the shaver it so it’s always ready to go.
bonus is that it comes in one of those great travel cases. Really its by far the best again when it comes to electric shavers you get what you pay for… this is worth every penny.

Gecko Grip Gloves, $24.67
If you’ve got a grill, dad’s almost definitely the master of it– and though it’s not quite grilling season yet, I’m sure any dad would be thrilled to get some Gecko Grip Gloves this holiday season. The Gecko Gloves provide two handed protection against burns, are water proof even in boiling water, protect up to 425 degrees and unlike other gloves the Gecko Gloves retain their grip due to the textured surface. The Gecko Glove five fingered set of two gloves allows dad to handle entire whole chickens, hams, turkeys and roasts during and after cooking, to stop dropping food from the point of meat forks and prongs! Gecko Gloves replace your cloth oven mitts that aren’t water proof and never look clean after the first wash. Simply wash the Gecko Gloves with your dishes or in your dishwasher! They retain their vivid color and never lose their shape! Dad will surely love a pair of these!
ThermoWorks Super-Fast Thermapen Instant Read Digital Cooking Thermometer, $96.00
While we’re on the topic of grilling and cooking, how about a good cooking thermometer for dad? The ThermoWorks Super-Fast Thermapen is a favorite among restaurant chains, health inspectors and quality managers worldwide. The clever fold-away probe and the simple pocket design replace more costly and bulky handheld thermometers while using the same professional thermocouple technology. The Thermapen features a robust, splash-proof design with molded-in seals to protect the thermometer from wet hands and kitchen splashes. Even more accurate than before and slightly faster! Our proprietary circuit yields accuracies better than ±0.7°F. That includes all errors! (many competitors don’t include the probe error in their spec.) Each unit comes with a NIST-Traceable certificate of calibration showing test results for the individual thermometer. Resolution is now 0.1° over the full range. Improvements in the probe technology now yield a blazing fast speed of 3 seconds to a full temperature reading. NO CABLES! The components most likely to fail in a commercial thermometer are the cable and its connector. Also, the typical handheld meter and probe combination requires two hands. What do you do with the cable when you’re through with it? The competition want you to wrap it around the meter, which is time consuming and a natural trap for grime and bacteria! The one-handed Thermapen eliminates frayed cables, snags, germ traps and wasted time while freeing your second hand. It’s convenient, easy, and effective for dad to use– a great choice!
New Balance Sneakers, Prices Vary
What dad doesn’t need a new pair of sneakers to replace the beaten-up old pair he’s wearing around? Get him some New Balance Sneakers this holiday season– whether built for running, outdoor, sports, or performance, these shoes will make dad’s day. You can even customize them to fit his exact style!
Polo Ralph Lauren Classic-Fit Mesh Polo, $59.99
Also in regard to dad’s style, I’m sure he’d love a new polo shirt, especially a Classic-Fit Mesh Polo from Ralph Lauren! Available in a variety of colors, this polo is comfortable, fashionable, and a steal for $59.99 (down from $85.00) through January 15– get your dad one today!
