For His Health
My husband is a dentist and the first things on his Christmas list are the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Power Toothbrush and AirFloss Pro. The DiamondClean Power Toothbrush combines style and function into a beautiful package. With 44% more bristles than the standard ProResults brush head this brush provides superior plaque removal and whiter teeth. It has five brushing modes: Clean, White, Polish, Gum Care, and Sensitive. It comes with a unique charging glass that lets you leave it resting in the glass to charge, plus it doubles for mouth rinsing. It also comes with a portable charging case that can be plugged into the wall or USB on your laptop to charge. The AirFloss Pro is just as effective as string floss but helps inconsistent flossers get healthier gums in just two weeks. You can get a deeper clean between your teeth in just 60 seconds a day!
Many of our loved ones face a medical condition like diabetes, high blood pressure or simple conditions that use finger pricks with a lancing device to test a small blood sample. Genteel Lancing Device takes away the pain of traditional lancing by using a shallow depth of penetration from the lancet and uses vibration and vacuum pressure to draw up a drop of blood without discomfort. Genteel is easy to use and can be used anywhere on the body from thighs and forearms to palms and fingers and just about anywhere else. This lets those fingertips heal and makes the testing much more pleasant overall. Visit the Genteel website to watch their helpful videos to learn more about how their process works or to order your Genteel lancing device!
Looking for a gift as unique as he is? The Man skincare products can be personalized with his name on the label for a truly unique gift!
