First thing’s first, if you haven’t already, make sure you pencil 15th June in your diary now. Father’s Day has been celebrated around the world since its origin in the USA in the early 20th Century. It’s meant as a simple celebration of the bond of male parenthood and it’s a brilliant chance to say thank you to our dads by spoiling them rotten.
As well as making the effort to spend time with your dad on June 15th, it’s high time to think about a great present too. This is where Wowcher comes in. We present to you, the ultimate guide to picking a great present for your old man (hint, don’t call him old) this year…
Before we begin, let me ask you a quick question. If you are reading this article at work, in front of a computer screen or on your mobile or tablet, are you doing so whilst also wearing earphones and listening to music? For many of us the answer will be yes. Indeed, as this blog is being written, the melodic sounds of Supertramp’s definitive album ‘Breakfast in America’ are being delivered to my ears via a pair of Sony earbuds.
In the increasingly hectic and noisy world we inhabit, we often find the best way to focus is to block out the world and let our personal choice of music be our only aural sensation. We have become modern-day solipsists, and the earphone is our device to separate us from the external reality. Getting the right type of earphone is crucial to fully enjoying our stolen moments of isolation, away from the invasive bustle of work.
With this in mind, let Wowcher offer you a brief overview of the myriad different kinds of earphone available on the market (and periodically as part of very attractive offers on Wowcher.co.uk), cutting through the jargon to let you know what type would suit you best.
