3 Great Gift Ideas for Grandparents this Christmas

For most of us, Christmas can be one of the most enjoyable times of the year. Time off work, family gatherings and of course, presents. But, it can be difficult get your loved ones a present that they’re actually going to use as opposed to something that they might just use every now and then.

The demographic that many of us struggle to buy for, myself included, is the grandparents. They really can be a nightmare to know what to get for them – fortunately, I’ve come up with this short list of different things that you might want to consider getting if you want to give your grandparents a perfect christmas gift.

Of course, this list is going to be different for everyone and not everything here will be ideal for your circumstance. But, many of the gifts here are undoubtedly worth considering if you want some gift ideas.

Kitchen Stuff – Ice Cream Maker

One of the best gifts I ever purchased my own parents was an ice cream maker. Although it might not seem like the best idea, there’s a reason why they love this gift so much.

The main reason is that it gives them something to do with their grandkids. The gap between grandparents and their grandchildren is getting harder, because much of the time, young kids are on their phones or tablets and they’re less likely to socialise. By getting the parents an ice cream maker, this has enable them to actually spend some time with our kids, which makes it a fantastic gift.

Of course, my parents do use the ice cream maker themselves sometimes too!

Google Home/Amazon Echo

This one completely depends on how technological the grandparents are. But, let me tell you that my parents (kids grandparents) are complete technophobes – but the Amazon Echo and Dot we got them last year gets used frequently.

What do they use it for? Well, primarily for music. I got sick and tired of seeing them fiddling with old CDs and after they tried using Spotify last year at my house, they fell in love with it. So, they’ve got a Spotify account set up with an Amazon Echo in the front room and a dot in their bedroom. Perfect.

They also use it as an alarm in the morning, which comes in handy!

Key Finder

Depending on whether they can take a joke or not, getting a keyfinder for grandparents is another really great idea. I used one of these myself, and although it might seem like a joke, it’s actually extremely useful. This is especially true for older grandparents who aren’t as quick as they used to be, so this can help to save them a bunch of time if they do happen to lose their keys.


Overall, these are just some ideas that I’ve bought for my kids grandparents in recent years. There are a ton of other ideas that you can check out – I usually find Pinterest one of the best places to get inspiration and ideas from! But, these are undoubtedly some of the ideas that you should be considering if you’re going to be purchasing grandparents a present these holidays.


Pillow vs No Pillow – Which is best?

If you’re suffering any sort of neck or back pain, then you’re going to look for ways to alleviate that. One of the oldest wives tales that you might have heard is that sleeping without a pillow is the best way to stop getting neck pains, as you often wake up with neck pains in the morning. But, is this a myth or is there research backing up this type of theory?

Well if you’re a side sleeper, then you’re definitely going to want to use a pillow – the same can be said for those that sleep on their back. But, if you’re a stomach sleep then you might want to consider starting to sleep without a pillow to keep your neck level with your spine.

I know – it can be confusing to know why you should sleep in this manner. But, there are reasons that you should sleep this way and I’ll try to take that into consideration in this post. Lets have a look at why you should sleep with a pillow most of the time.

Back Sleepers

If you’re a back sleeper, then may it would seem logical that you should sleep without a pillow. I mean, doesn’t this just make sense? Well, apparently not as research shows that this isn’t necessarily the case. One of the wealthiest guys in the pillow industry Mike Lindell (just check the my pillow inventor net worth online) can attest that back sleepers should use a pillow to keep their head levitated.

Side Sleepers

If you’re a side sleeper and you want to continue using a pillow, then you’re also in luck. It’s said that side sleepers should also use a pillow, because this is necessary to keep the spine straight and avoid flat back syndrome. Sleeping on your side is considered by most professionals as the best way to sleep to avoid aches and pains accruing throughout the night.

Stomach Sleepers

If you’re a stomach sleeper and you’re debating getting rid of your pillow, then maybe you have a case. There is research that suggests that sleeping with a pillow if you’re a stomach sleeper can actually have a negative effect on your spine, as it forces it out of alignment with the neck.

If you are a stomach sleeper, then you should consider getting yourself an extremely thin pillow – or you can avoid getting yourself a pillow altogether.


Overall, it’s pretty clear to see that you should try to gauge what type of sleeper that you are. If you’re a stomach sleeper, then it could be worth considering ditching the pillow and seeing if your neck pains improve. If you’re a side or back sleeper, then don’t get rid of the pillow just yet.


5 Rappers all the kids love

If you’re trying to keep down with the kids, then you really need to be listening to hip hop. It’s definitely the most popular genre of music at the moment and you’ll see it scattered all over the charts.

There’s an abundance of Lil’s and Young’s coming out on the hip hop scene that make it really hard to keep up with what’s going on. To help, I’ve made this super short list of some of the top hip hop rappers that are around right now.

Young Thug

Although he sounds like a super bad guy, some of Young Thugs lyrics are hilarious and he’s not too bad. There’s a lot of talk that Young Thug is gay, but he appear to me to just be a bit eccentric. He has had some good albums come out and my favorite song of his is Wyclef Jean! If you haven’t seen the video then you shold check it out because it’s hilarous.

Lil Yachty

Lil Yachty’s music is just catchy. Although he doesn’t have the best lyrical content, it’s hard to deny that broccoli isnt one of the catchiest darn tunes you’ve ever heard! Although he doesn’t released as much music now he’s still super popular (or so my kids tell me).

Lil Uzi Vert

Lil Uzi had the biggest song of 2017 with XO Tour Life – it’s just an awesome catchy beat that anyone can vibe to. Even though if you check the lyrics to the song they can be a bit dark and weird, Lil Uzi is definitely someone that you should keep up with.

Lil Baby

I hadn’t of Lil Baby until he released a song with Drake – now he seems to be everywhere! Like Lil Yachty he is from Atlanta – home to some of the best rappers around. My kids love Lil Baby so you should get to know him because he is probably going to be around for a while.


Migos make up the round up of some of the best rappers that you’ll find coming out in the last year or two. They’re older than the other rappers mentioned but that doesn’t mean that the kids like them any less! They have some great tunes and collaboratd with Lil Uzi on Bad and Boujee – one of the biggest songs of 2016.



My Experiences with the Bone Broth Diet

If you’re looking for a new trend diet to try, then you’ve likely heard of the Bone Broth Diet. It’s one of the most commonly tried diets of recent years, and for good reason. It doesn’t just work for weight loss, but it’s also good for the natural health of your body too. There were a few reasons that I decided to try the Bone Broth Diet and I’ll talk to you about them now.

The main reason that I decided to go ahead with my bone broth diet is that I finished my green smoothie cleanse and didn’t feel totally cleaned. I know that may sound a little weird, but stick with me. There are a few things that I didn’t like about my smoothie cleanse. Mainly that because I did not consume enough water, I don’t really feel like I gave my body the opportunity to breathe properly. In the future, I would try to drink more water which would hopefully improve my experience.

Back to the Bone Broth Diet! There are a couple of reason I decided to go for this type of diet. The main ones being;

  • Nutrition – The Bone Broth diet is notoriously great for your body. The collagen in the bone broth is super beneficial for your bones and you will definitely notice the difference if you try it for the first time.
  • Leftovers-  For the bone broth diet you need to use a mixture of meaty bones and joints. I have just cooked a mass of meat for an event that I am hosting so I had a lot of it left over! It was extremely easy for me to make this food which was awesome. You really need the broth to gel properly for it to work, which was important to me and something that I needed to consider thoroughly.
  • Eating – Whilst you don’t have to give up eating on a bone broth diet, it is a choice that you can make. For me, I decided to give up eating on my diet competely because I like to fully regenerate my inside system and I feel like this is the bet way to do so.
  • Length of time – I felt like the bone broth diet being only 21 days in recommended length was ideal for me to fit it into my regime. Any longer than that and I would likely have struggled because I didn’t want to do it much morethan this amount of time.
  • Benefits – There are a ton of benefits for you to gain from trying out the bone broth diet. If you have never tried it before, it comes highly recommended by a mass of health nutrition experts so you should consider giving it a go.
  • Muscle – it was important for me to try and keep muscle so undoubtedly this was a better option than something like water fasting, which would not be as possible unfortunately.

Overall my bone broth diet went amazingly well and I didn’t notice any significant weakness like I did when I done my smoothie cleanse. I noticed a pretty significant difference, which makes me inclined to integrate the bone broth diet as a more regular part of my regime.



Gift ideas for the new man in your life

Looking for ideas for gifts to get the man in your life? Well, here I’m going to run through some ideas for what you might want to get your fella. There’s an abundance of different things that you can get your man, but there’s definitely a bunch of things that will suit all guys. So if this is a new guy in your life, then you can play it safe with these gifts and not have to worry too much about what you’re getting him.

There are some things that you can get any guy and the likelihood is that they’ll be happy. These ideas include things like;


Every man like a good watch. Try and get him something that can go with any occasion. For me, I personally like to find the best pilot watch around for my other half because he particularly like aviation and navigation. This type of watch is a great idea because it can be worn with jeans and a t shirt, but also goes well with a suit. You don’t need to break the bank to get a nice watch like this, so it’s worth considering if you’re struggling for ideas.


Another good choice of gift for a new man in your life is to play it super safe. For this, you might want to look at getting him a good cologne. Cologne can be awesome but you want to make sure that you’re getting him the best one for his needs. For me, that means going for Issey Miyake. It is my favorite cologne for men and I’ve bought it for numerous partners in the past – no complaints yet!

Tickets to an Event

Okay, for this one you definitely need a little knowledge of what it is that the guy is interested in generally. But have you ever been on a dinner date and found it to be ridiculously boring, even though you kinda like the guy? Well if you get him tickets to an event, then it ensures that you get to see the man at his best – happy and enjoying himself. Of course, trying to make it an event that you’ll like too is always a bonus!

Round Up

Overall, these are what I believe to be the safest of the three options if you’re looking at something for a new partner. If you are, then it’s a good idea to have a bit of knowledge on him beforehand so that you aren’t completely off the mark!


What do 7 year olds like to play with?

I’ve recently had another baby – that makes three now. The second youngest is 2, and the oldest is now reach that tricky age of 7. It’s his birthday next week, and I’ve been racking my brains on ideas for gifts that I can get him to celebrate his 7th birthday.

Of course, the first thing that came to my mind was technology. All kids nowadays seem to want what their friends have, and as Joseph (my sons) friend just got a new tablet, this is what he wanted too. But, I took a vow not to let my kids have tablets and mobile phones until they were a little older, so this isn’t going to be of any use to me!

Here’s my short list of ideas of what 7 year olds like to play with. FYI – I have a niece who’s 7 too, so although this list might seem biased towards boys – she likes the same toys my son does too!

Toy Guns

My youngest is obsessed with toy guns, but I’ve held off from giving him anything that you can actually fire yet. I’m a little dubious of giving him something that actually has ammo, but I might treat him to paintball soon. For this reason, I think that getting a good laser tag set might be the best option for a 7 year old if they’re interested in that type of stuff.

Get them a long range set for laser tag too and you can get them outside so they’re not cooped up indoors all day. One of the hardest things about raising kids nowadays is keeping them outside before they come in and go on their games consoles!

Toy Games

Although my oldest doesn’t like most games, there are a few that I can convince him in to playing pretty easily. I try to steer clear of anything intellectually stiimulating as a gift – I don’t think the kids would be too happy getting chess as a birthday gift! But things like giant jenga are an awesome gift for a 7 year old. If you’re on a budget, you can also look at making your own DIY jenga too!

I try not to get my kid too many console games otherwise I’d never get him out of his bedroom!

GO Kart Racing

Not all gifts have to be something physical. Another good idea is to get your kids a day out that you can spend with them (again, getting them out of the house!).

Go kart racing is a great idea that is fun for the entire family. It isn’t super expensive, and you don’t need to be worried about the speed of the go karts if you find a good place to go. Of course, if you don’t want to go on the go karts yourself then it’s a good idea to invite some of your kids friends to play with them Nothing worse than karting alone!


These are just a few of the idea that I’ve had recently that I think will make awesome presents for my kid in the future – especially with my youngests birthday approaching fast!


Buying a full speaker system – Tips and Tricks

Recently, I had to buy a full speaker system for me and my family. I couldn’t think of many different companies aside from Polk and Klipsch, so these were the first companies that I looked into purchasing from. They’re much more expensive than some of the budget versions, but they are usually worth the extra price.

The first thing that I wanted to purchase for my complete system is the center channel speakers. This is because they are probably the most important part of your system, and you’ll want to base everything else in your system around them. There are tons of different speakers available on the market, but I ended up going for some Klipsch speakers. Why?

Well, in my opinion Klipsch speakers are the most attractive speakers that you can find. They’re finished with a nice, professional gloss and you can be sure that you don’t need to be concerned about them breaking due to the awesome warranty.

Along with your center channel speakers, you’ll want to get yourself some standing speakers to accompany them. For me, the best option was to go for some in wall speakers because you don’t have to worry about them becoming an eyesore.

I don’t mind having speakers in general, but it’s best not to have them in the way in my opinion. I ended up going with Klipsch speakers for this too, mainly because they are the best option once you go with them originally. This is because the whole setup match each other, and you can avoid having mix and match issues and speakers that don’t match.

It must be said that Klipsch speakers are expensive, and I do think that for some people there are better options available. But I had the extra cash to spare so I decided that this would be the best option for me.

How to Pick the Best Speakers for you

It isn’t easy to decide on the best speakers for your needs. You should consider;

  • Budget – Of course, you want to end up buying speakers that you can afford. This should be of the utmost importance!
  • Quality – The quality of the speakers is also important. You want to get some good speakers that won’t break easily.
  • Appearance – You want to make sure that you get some speakers that look good too!

Overall, I’m extremely happy with my speakers and I would recommend them to anyone.


How often does the average woman shave her legs?

Shaving your legs – the bane of life for the majority of women. Unless you have been blessed enough to not be particularly hairy, then having to shave constantly can be a bit of a nightmare. This is one of the main reasons many women turn to waxing, although this isn’t suitable for everyone.

Now before I start, let me clarify – there’s absolutely nothing wrong with letting your leg hair grow. Nothing. No matter what media or your friends may tell you, you shouldn’t have to worry about shaving your legs and keeping them baby smooth 24/7. It’s 2018! So, it’s understood that you don’t necessarily have to shave your legs constantly. Though, the majority of women want to keep their legs clean shaven.

It seems that the general average that a woman really shaves their legs is around once every 1-2 weeks. Of course, there are those that will shave more often than this and there’s some who will shave less frequently (if not never!).

It really is down to personal preference, and deciding on a good shaving regime is a solid way to ensure that you’ll never get caught with long leg hair.

It’s actually very common for women to shave their legs too often, which can leave the hair permanently bristly. If you want to shave your legs daily, then be my guest, but you’re going to eventually get annoyed having to keep them maintained permanently.

What you need to keep your leg hair neat and tidy

Keeping your leg hair short and neat is pretty easy. You just need to make sure you’re using the right equipment. You undoubtedly need;

  • A good quality shaving cream – Cheap shaving creams aren’t allowed! Try to find a shaving cream that is paraben free and doesn’t have any fragrance in it. This is better for people with sensitive skin, as you won’t need to worry about irritation.
  • A good quality razor for shaving- Getting a good razor is one of the best investments that you’ll make if you’re trying to keep your legs trim. There are tons of different razors available on the market, so it’s definitely worth your time to shop around.
  • Aftercare – It can pay to get some aftercare shaving equipment to help. If you experience razor burn often, then this is definitely something that you’ll want to invest in.



Overall, shaving your legs every couple of weeks is a good idea to help minimize the amount of time that you’re spending shaving. The razor that you need for shaving your legs is not the same as what you’d use elsewhere. For example, the best razor for shaving your head is not the same as the optimal razor for your legs. You don’t want to spend every waking hour worrying whether you should shave your legs or not.
