Celebrate Father’s Day with Philips and win this for your dad

Father’s Day is almost upon us. Like Mother’s Day, it’s a strange holiday, I think. You grow up celebrating it, taking it as a moment to do something special for the people who raised you (are still raising you?), but at some point you get old enough and spawn your own little person and then it’s your turn to be spoiled. I have plans for how I’m going to make the day special for the curmudgeonly man in my life, and I’m sure you all know someone (or are someone) who wants something special, too. That’s why we have a cool giveaway for you.

I know plenty of gamers have beards, and that’s totally fine, but I also know that plenty of gamers prefer the clean-shaven look. Or, you like to style your facial hair to suit your features or to avoid that horribly itchy neck. Or, maybe you have a father who laughs at your beard every time he sees you, happily flaunting his hair-free face flesh. Whatever the situation, we’re sure that you could use a shaver, either to use on yourself or to give to your dad as a gift.

So, thanks to the awesome people from Philips, we have a fantastic giveaway for you. The Philips Shaver series 7000 is an electric shaver specially designed for sensitive skin. It works with wet or dry shaving, is easy to use and easy to clean. Plus, there’s even a beard styler with 5 length settings if you enjoy having some hair on your face but want to keep it looking tamed and well groomed.

Want to win this? Of course you do! All you need to do is head over to our special entry page, give us your name and email address and hope that the Random.org gods are ever in your favour. Bonus points (but not extra entries) are given if you share some fun, random or weird father-son moments in the comments below. This is a quick competition as next Sunday is already Father’s Day. As a result, I will be pulling a winner on Wednesday, 15 June at noon so that we can strive to get you your prize for the special day. So, get thee to the entry page and good luck!

Competition is only open to those in South Africa. You’re allowed one entry per wholly unique email address. Winners will be posted on site and notified by email.

    I actually have no nice father/son memories.

    I do have some very awesome father-in-law stories, that man is a legend!

    R.I.P pops. The new Star Wars was cool. Game of Thrones has proved to be great. Should have borrowed the books from you. You still have my World at War boxset. Chop. Goodnight πŸ˜‰

    I remember when my son was 1 year 3 months old. We were watching series on tv, and he was on the floor next to use with a bowl of popcorn. We stopped watching the series and watched him instead.

    He was throwing popcorn out the bowl to get to the very specific piece of popcorn he wanted. Found it, ate it with a satisfied look on his face, and did it all over again. Bowl was empty. Only a quarter of it eaten, the rest all over the floor. Easily one of my most favourite memories.

    Don’t really feel like delving into memories here, but I will say that the greatest thing my dad taught me, not through any sort of communication, but by example, is how to treat a woman. With compassion and respect. ggwp dad.

    My dad loved his whiskey so every time before I take my first sip I try to remember him.

      My Dad loved beer and sangria. Strangely enough, he never drank when I was growing up. Now, whether by plan or luck, I don’t drink at all. Used to, but at the age of 27 the party eventually passed me by. Also, This is a funny one, When he was in the army he got the worfd f*ck you tattood on his butt cheek. It was a crudely done life regret which is funny as hell. As a result of that, I have never saw the need for one.

    This would have made a great gift for my dad. I still remember the times when he had to trim his beard in the living room and I had to hold the mirror so he could see what he was doing. RIP dad!

    My fondest memories are going fishing with my Father and Grandfather on the beach. Those were the days. Taught to tie the hook, attach the perfect amount of bait. Taught to cast.

    It was a cold dreary day when I went to the beach with a fishing rod with my dad for the last time to have one last fishing day for my Grandfather after he passed away. Tears in my dad and my eyes. We cried together that day.

    Goodbye Granddad. I will always miss you.

    To many to mention with my dad.

    Most knowledgeable and wisest person I ever knew; still meet people up to this day who worked with him and say the same.
    Countless fishing and hunting weekends and farm trips.

    But the best was probably the 1 and half years he got to spend with my son.

    RIP

    I’m reading through the comments and seeing everyone’s losses makes me sad, but also makes me realise exactly how precious every moment with a loved one is, make the most of it, and to those of you that have dealt with it, thank you for making me realise this.
