GOLFTOOL

Back in the 1880s, the Swiss Army was in dire need of a compact and sturdy folding knife for various purposes from opening their canned food to disassembling a rifle.  The founder of Victorinox Swiss Army Knife, Karl Elsener came up with the revolutionary idea of creating this marvellous tool with a sophisticated twist. Standard folding knives would have a blade, a can opener as well as a screwdriver. These tools were attached to a pivot point mechanism on the knife’s handle – a very smart and practical way of assembling a folding knife. Elsener then changed this mechanism to a spring mechanism which allowed twice as many tools to be attached to this small package.

Centuries have passed and the Swiss Army knife has evolved into a highly crafted and useful tool which is carried by many professionals in their field. Astronauts, rangers, mountain climbers, and athletes have this small gadget handy in their pockets to assist them in time of need.  But then, out comes our wondrous Victorinox Swiss Army Golf tool – perfectly suited for the golf professionals out there. This tool has ten different useful items in the one little device, making it the most versatile item to help golfers on the course.  Attachments include a one-hand locking Divot Repair tool, Ball Marker, Tee Punch with Groove Cleaner, Bottle opener, Nail file, Blade, Tweezers, Toothpick and even a pair of Scissors. Looking for a gift that will be cherished and pocketed 24/7 by your golf-loving groomsmen? Ta-dah………!!! Big things do come in small packages!

WINE STOPPER

Imagine yourself seated by the fireplace indulging in an enchanting wine tasting session up at Napa Valley or even at the gorgeous Chianti region of Tuscany. Take sips of wines from all over the world. From Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Savignon Blanc, to Merlot, Shiraz, Rosé and Cava, pamper your taste buds and leave all your worries behind.

The temptation of buying a bottle or two of the best wines from your favourite winery is irresistible. Buying or enjoying wine in a restaurant is of course, ohh so pleasant! Sipping on some fine Merlot as you unwind at home after a long tiring day is simply heavenly. It truly rids you of all the day’s stress.

So go and grab some bottles to enjoy at your own leisure. Keep in mind though that one wouldn’t normally finish a whole bottle of wine on their own. A glass an evening should suffice, don’t you think? Well, that should do the trick unless you plan on sleeping in for the next two days. Whoever came up with the idea of creating wine stoppers should get an award, especially chic ones like this Steering Wheel Wine Stopper. With a firm steering-wheel grip, this air tight stopper eases you to pop it into that bottle keeping your wine preserved well for a longer time. This is the kind of accessory that wine lovers would not settle with just one piece, making it a wise choice as a thank you gift for all your groomsmen after the amount of hard work they put in to organize that spellbinding bachelor party. It would also be a perfect gift for those adrenalin junky racers out there as it will remind them of their glory behind the steering wheel. Or perhaps, even you can start a wine stopper collection of your own. Wine away beautiful people!!

It has been said that a good cigar is like tasting a good wine; you smell it, you taste it, you look at it, you feel it, you can even hear it. It satisfies all the senses. Dignified men have indulged themselves in the art of cigar smoking for centuries. These men make sure that they only smoke the best cigars.

So, what does it take in order to retain the freshness of the tobacco in cigars? It all depends on how the cigars are stored.
