man who loves pizza (who doesn’t?!), treat them to their very own wood-fired
pizza oven, complete with 3kg of wood pellets. It’s the most expensive item on
our list, but as it reaches temperatures of 500C in 10 minutes, and can cook an
authentic Neapolitan pizza in just one minute, hopefully you’ll get to benefit
from it too!
for the neat and tidy bearders, this product is ideal for those family members
whose constant trimming results in cut hairs being spread across the bathroom.
The answer to this issue is a vacuum trimmer, which catches up to 90% of cut
hairs, leaving little or no mess around the bathroom sink.
spend half of our time in the dark outdoors at this time of the year – or at
least, it feels like we do. So it pays to have a quality torch handy to make
navigating in the dark – be it coming home from an evening meal or putting the
bins out – safer and easier. GP’s beam Penlight is not just any torch either –
its waterproof, anodised coating and powerful light output (which reaches an
impressive distance of 55 metres) makes it the torch among torches.
HyperChiller is a big hit on the other side of the Atlantic and it’s easy to
see why. It promises to chill hot coffee (or tea) by up to 70+ degrees Celsius
in 60 seconds without dilution, making it the perfect gift for any hot-beverage
aficionado. Or perhaps they’re more of a whiskey man? They can use the
HyperChiller so that their malt is ice-cold as soon as it hits the rocks.

baggage, so they can keep their devices charged wherever they are in the world.
bloke loves a fresh pair of slippers at Christmas. This year, push the boat out
a bit and get him some Mahabis Larvik slippers. They might look like your
average slippers, but with a detachable rubber sole for wearing outdoors,
they’re anything but ordinary.
the safety-conscious man in your life, the GP motion-sensor Safeguard safety
light is the perfect match. Suitable for outdoor use, and ideal for the shed,
garage or driveway, the real reason he’ll love the Safeguard is that it’s

on almost any wall!
On Sunday, April 22nd, tens of thousands
of lycra-clad enthusiasts will descend upon the capital’s streets to take part
in one of its most famous, annual events: the London Marathon. It’s a true test
of physical and mental strength – but ask any former participant and they’ll
tell you, the feeling of euphoria they get when they cross that finish line is
impossible to beat. If you’re taking part in this year’s race,
chances are you’re already weeks or months into your training programme. But
the GP team thought it could be useful to offer some final preparation tips to
make sure you’re in top race condition… 1 month to go: the ‘big one’
Arguably the scariest part of the training
