Why You Should Buy: The Sennheiser Headphones

As you get older, a lot of us fall out of love with music. When you've got kids and bills on the mind, it's hard to carve out time to sit and listen to music. 

Let me tell you, there is no better feeling than refinding your love of music. Ever since I invested in a pair of high-quality headphones, it's changed how often I listen to music. 

When I'm doing housework, when I pick up the kids from school, even in the bath (although you absolutely should not take headphones in the bath!), rediscovering older music you'd forgotten really brings back some fond memories. 

Plus with apps like Spotify where you can listen to music without needing to pay anything, there's never been a better time to get back into music. 

Just, as I say, make sure you get some decent headphones. You will be amazed at how much of a song you've been missing. 

What Kind of Toys Do Parents Like?

Picking out a gift for any age bracket is never easy, so here is the single most important piece of advice you need to consider. 

Think about their interests and work from there. Are they into Marvel comics, Harry Potter, what bands do they like, what TV shows do they watch? What are their hobbies? How do they spend their downtime?

The best gifts are always the ones that come with some sort of emotional attachment. Whether that's you know the person well enough to get them something without asking or you're showing you know what they're into and who they are as a person. 

It's not always the gift that pleases, it's the thought behind it.
