DAVID KIND OPTICS

david kind_20140601_IMG_5266

We don’t know how else to start this, but that we are smitten. By David Kind. For making us feel special.

If you have a man in your life who wears glasses, there is no better gift than David Kind’s VIP treatment.

Up until now shopping for glasses has been far from glamorous. And receiving glasses as a gift? Well, that’s just not fun. However David Kind has been able to turn a somewhat unpleasant experience into something that anyone will enjoy.

Imagine having 6 frames specially picked out for your loved one’s face and preferences by a knowledgeable personal stylist. And then receiving a beautiful wooden box with those luxury high quality frames to try on. After spending some time trying the frames, they would correspond with the stylist back and forth to find the perfect fit, even if the right frame isn’t in that box. Once the perfect frame is found, David Kind uses one of a kind digital technology to calculate their PD and send out luxury quality frames with anti-glare, HD lenses. No more distorted vision of polycarbonate with cheap frames that fall apart.

This is a true gift of clear vision that our men (and we) deserve!

David Kind is a pampering experience like no other, bound to make your loved one feel really special.

Nintendo 3DS

3DS2

Here is the perfect gift for the gamer dad!  He may not feel like he has time to sit down and play on the Wii (other than Mario Kart with the kids) but with this portable gaming system dad can still get his play time in!  The Nintendo 3DS is lightweight, durable and will easily fit in his pocket so it will be available whenever he gets a free moment!  Whether it’s on his train commute to work or during a lunch break or after the kids go to bed, he will appreciate this versatile gift and its many functions.  For example, while it’s in his pocket in sleep mode, the 3DS will count his steps and award him play coins with the built in pedometer.  He can then use them to purchase applications or special content for his 3DS.

3DS Collage

As its name suggests, the Nintendo 3DS displays the games in 3D but if dad prefers 2D, there is a slider on the side of the system that allows you to choose the level of 2D or 3D he prefers to see.  He and the kids will enjoy recording and playing back 3D videos together or taking 2d or 3D photos with the built-in camera.  The Nintendo 3DS also provides an easy to access stylus for improved accuracy when using the bottom touch screen.  The 2GB SD Memory Card that comes with the 3DS can be used for storing music, photos and games.  Dad won’t even have to waste time going to the store to purchase games – just get online and download from the Nintendo eShop!

Nokia Lumia Icon Smartphone

Lumia_20140601_IMG_5350
Nothing excites a Dad on Father’s Day more than new technology.

Make that new technology a brand new Nokia Lumia Icon Smartphone and you will have achieved Father’s Day Nirvana!

The Lumia Icon is Nokia’s brand new flagship windows phone that offers specs that would make even the most discerning dad’s drool. With a whopping 20-megapixel PureView camera, a gorgeous 5-inch 1080p display, top-of-the-line quad-core Snapdragon processor, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB RAM and a 2,420mAh battery this little beauty of a smartphone packs a punch that is making Apple and Samsung more than a little nervous.

For all those who have not had any experience with Windows phone operating system, it is an absolute breath of fresh air. The experience can only be described as intuitive and masculine. On the cover page the live tiles are not only satisfying to press but are also informative: they flip to list important information without having to fully enter the app. Also the fact that the cover page keeps all your important apps on the first page makes far more sense than having to swipe through page after page of icons in search of the app you need.

If you have a man in your life who is looking for a change from an old tired iPhone, but isn’t willing to downgrade to an Android, Nokia Lumia is going to blow him away!
