|Amerigo Premium Whisky Stones Gift Set||Finum Permanent Filter Brewing Basket||The Charmoni wallet||Lamicall Phone Ring Holder||Wind Passion Rope Bracelet|
|Some people prefer to drink their whisky cold, but don't like the dilution of water that traditional ice cubes bring. If the man you want to spoil is one of these, you know what you have to do.||This filter is a classic that every tea and coffee lover will appreciate. Equipped with a very fine mesh, it also has a lid that helps to retain all the flavours of your beverage while brewing.||The wallet has been added to the list of must-haves in this selection. Although it has already made many people happy in the past, it has a bright future ahead of it.||Compatible with all smartphones, this sleek and stylish support ring is very practical for keeping the device balanced. It will allow you to watch your videos or take pictures in complete safety.||This handmade jewel is more than qualitative! Made from a marine rope, it almost makes you want to shout Hissez haut ! Santiano. And if you think we're exaggerating, wait until you can analyse its design...|
The Amerigo set includes 9 stones, odourless and tasteless, which can of course be used in any other drink than whisky. Chilled in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours, these stones add the necessary touch of freshness to your drink.
The Brewing Basket has an M size which makes it suitable for cups with a diameter of 65 to 95 mm. The fact that it has a lid is good enough in itself, but what about the fact that it can be used as a drip tray once the drink is ready, what else?
Also available in black Nubuck, this model is made of synthetic leather and has 4 flaps. Tickets, bank cards, driving licence or car registration certificate: there is no lack of space! So if you want to give pleasure without breaking the bank, you now know what to do…
Available in different colours, this ring has a 3M adhesive that holds the smartphone firmly. Therefore, it is best to have a cover and avoid applying it directly to the device. Note that it is also designed to be used with the Lamicall car phone holder. Perfectly compatible, the two magnets attract each other and keep your smartphone firmly in place. So no risk of dropping it.
This is something to awaken the pirate in you, because as minimalist as it is, this bracelet has nothing to be ashamed of. Very modern, it is handmade in Europe and is subjected to a strict control process before being able to adorn the wrist of the lucky man. As well as being completely waterproof (a sailor’s soul), it is also unisex, which explains why it is so adjustable in size.

Easy to install and comfortable, its mosquito net prevents insects from disturbing your sleep.||After a long fitness session or an outdoor sports session, the body needs to be comforted.

With its well-thought-out ergonomics, this memory cushion guarantees good support for the neck and shoulders during long journeys. Indeed, it aims to improve rest during the journey and also comes with a bag in which you can fold it to save maximum space in your luggage. In short, a travel pillow as we like them is practical and cosy to arrive in good shape at your destination.
Made from woven nylon parachute fabric and triple-stitched, this hammock is reliably robust. For optimum comfort, it incorporates a mosquito net and two aluminium poles to extend its space. Easy to set up and store, it disappears into a small pouch that slips easily into a hiking bag. All you have to do is go on an adventure!
Made from 100% natural ingredients, Weleda’s Arnica sports recovery bath is the ally (or should we say teammate?) of sportsmen and women. A real little concentrate of medicinal plants, it is used especially after exercise since its soothing and invigorating virtues enable it to effectively dissipate fatigue and feelings of stiffness.
The Stylophone is the iconic keyboard instrument of the 1960s. Extremely popular, it is still appealing today with its retro look and chrome grille. The S1 Stylophone has a vibrato function and three very retro voices (Bass, Classic and Treble), each with its own sound. We can already see many hours of experimentation ahead…

Whether you’re hiking, biking, working or living, it’s well-made and 100% waterproof. But that’s not all! This model has the advantage of being isothermal, which allows you to keep your drink cold (or hot) for more than 12 hours.
When chef Thibaud Villanova and food photographer Alban Couturier joined forces, little did we know that they were about to create a truly unprecedented work of art? Do you dream of attending Son Goku’s lavish banquets? Now you can with this book of impressive and delicious recipes. From fish fondue to crème caramel and edible crystal ball, your taste buds will be in for a treat. Everyone to the table! Itadakimasu!

The coffee is good. But when it’s Italian, it’s even better. This coffee maker is a formidable ally for all lovers of good coffee. Not only does it give you a qualitative dose of caffeine that smells of Italy, but it also has an ergonomic design made of stainless steel. Practical, durable and modern, the Dolce Vita has never been so accessible.
The 10,000mAh battery is very compact, yet fast and powerful, with an output of up to 22.5W from the USB-C port and 18W from the other two UUSB-A ports. During our tests, we particularly appreciated its compromise between an optimised size and first-rate performance. Its capacity allows you to charge a standard smartphone about twice.
Marketed by the Bodum brand, which originally specialised in coffee makers, this 1L capacity carafe is a must-have for an oenophile audience. It is made of cork and borosilicate glass and is 100% European in design. Note that the product also exists in a 2L capacity.

Whether you’re travelling around the world or just enjoying a pool party, this Bluetooth speaker will seduce you with its waterproofness (IPX7 certification), its ease of transport thanks to its small weight and, above all, its 24-hour autonomy allowing you to enjoy it for a long time. An essential for music lovers!
Whether you like coffee, tea or even hot chocolate (after all, aren’t men big kids?), this cup warmer is very practical. It connects via USB and therefore allows for an easy connection to the man’s computer. He can then enjoy his favourite hot drink at the optimum temperature, even (and especially) in the office.
Ranking highly in our selection of the best beard trimmers, this model of the 1000 series is ideal for trimming, styling, and eventually shaving. Iit is particularly suitable for the maintenance of 3-day beards, mustaches, sideburns, and finishing touches on contours and hard-to-reach areas. It has three blades (1, 3, and 5 mm). During our tests, we found it to be very handy thanks to its small size and lightweight (which also makes it ideal to take everywhere in a toilet bag).
