This is my first post on my CLEO blog and it's so exciting to be able to interact with you, our lovely readers
via the digital world as an added platform to our magazine!
So, what have you been up to these days? Preparing for a holiday or a get-together in conjunction with the festive season, I assume? Not to forget all those awesome parties you got lined up to attend?
Apart from all that, my favourite part of the festive season is gift-shopping. It’s so easy to shop for the girls (also fun cos I can pick up a few gifts for myself while I'm at it!) but what starts off as a pleasurable errand soon turns into a daunting task when it comes to buying stuff for them males! I try not to resort to getting them the same old tie/shirt/socks/boxers. Not that they complain, but I’d just like to make my gift special. Don’t we all??
So, this year, I decided to start guy-gift-scouting earlier than usual and voila, I found some pretty cool stuff I think a dad/brother/boyfriend/guy friend would really love!
1. 'Adrenalin' Gift Box by ORIGINALO
ORIGINALO, the brand that made our lives so much easier with their awesome thoughtful gift boxes, has the perfect gift for the adrenaline junkie you know. Very aptly named “Adrenalin”, this gift allows the receipent to choose from 12 different action-packed adventures. Among the choices are, shark cage diving, Cessna plane flying and hip hop dancing! Best part is, some experiences are for 2 – so you might get invited to join in the fun too. Get it for RM200 from www.originalo.com.my or selected Borders bookstores.
2. Pedro Wallet
This ain’t your ordinary wallet. It’s from Pedro’s Winter 2011 collection – an awesome collection with multitude of designs and distinctive modern styles. Its irresistible leather and colour that boldly moves away from the boring black, this is a piece that would suit a man of any age! Find them at Pedro stores nationwide.
3. Lacoste 'Montreal' Watches
I love how classy these watches look that I can’t even begin
to pick my favourite colour! These timepieces would definitely look oh-so-sexy (it’s a French brand, whaddya expect!) on your man’s
wrist. Available at Lacoste boutiques and leading watch retailers from RM550.
