Best TVsA good new TV will never go unused or unloved and if you are one of those unlucky gift givers who just can’t help buying duds then it might well be a good time to consider buying a new telly, let’s face it if you live together it’s a present for both of you, in our opinion that’s the best kind of present you can buy.
Panasonic EZ1002 4k OLEDIt’s a lengthy, unwieldy name, but it’s clear why this TV is a standout. With its profession grade image processor it can display true black as it's meant to be, absorbing reflections on annoying light in the process, to give you a clearer, crisper image.
Samsung KS9500This range of TVs features a curved screen, HDR quality pictures and high quality sound. This is the best picture quality you can currently get. The brightness of the pictures is contrasted by the use of Quantum Colour Dot tech which ensures a balanced image.
WatchesA watch is a classic accessory for any man, a good watch can be a great marker of masculinity and will lend an air of prestige to the wearer. So here is a short list of the best men’s watches for under £200.
Nocs Atelier – Made by a Swedish car manufacturer this simple, minimalist black design is reminiscent of a car body. The face is completely unobstructed by logos or numbers and only has one hand. This is as uncluttered and simple as a watch display and design can get and its functional design is suitable for pairing with any style of clothing.
Daniel Wellington – St Andrew Watch in Brown. This watchmaker is renowned for their traditional and elegant designs. The gold detailing on the watch face complements the brown leather strap perfectly, the delicate stitching sets off and enhances the strap perfectly. This lowkey watch would suit any man with understated yet classical style.
Shore Projects - Project 1 Watch in Grey. This watch has metallic overtones from the shiny watch face edging to the grey canvas watch strap. It’s cool enough to be worn casually and won’t look out of place in the modern workplace either.
