What we thought:
Matt and myself love nothing more than a good back massage, so we were really excited about trying out this chair for my gift guide. When it arrived I was first to try it out. I had only used a back massaging chair once before, I wasn't expecting it to be very good as it isn't a full chair. I was VERY wrong. The chair was just the same as the one I had tried before, only it was a much better experience as it was in the comfort of my own home. I sat on the chair for a good half hour and then let Matt try it out. He too said it was amazing, and after a long day Gardening or lugging around heavy bouncy castes, he can often be found in that chair!!

My dad is not one for back massages so we decided to keep the chair ourselves as we will get a lot out of it. This chair is no.1 on the Fathers Day gift guide as Matt has enjoyed it the most out of all the things we received to try out.

  1. Potters Crouch Scented Candles – Masculine scented candles

Each of the Potters Crouch highly scented candles is hand mixed; hand poured; hand labelled and finished, using the finest quality natural ingredients and original perfumes created by an expert French perfumer exclusively for Potters Crouch candles.   With a secret blend of wax, all candles burn for about 50 hours. Each candle is encased in a beautifully decorated tin, which is cleverly designed so that when the candle is lit, the tin becomes warm helping to ‘throw’ and release the fragrance into the room.

This is our 2nd Potters Crouch candle, we absolutley love them. They leave a lovely long lasting scent around the home even after it has been put out, and the candle itself lasts a very long time. 

costs £8.50 from Potters Crouch Candles
