THE FIRE WIRE 2015 Holiday Must Have Item – Ambroley Grooming Esentials

Add a touch of class to your morning shaving ritual and toss away those disposable razors. Pamper your face with the grooming tools it deserves from AmbroleyOnline! They are obsessed with providing their customers with a superior shaving experience and they don’t settle for less than the absolute best.

Their products are just part of what sets them apart and their customer services is the tops in the industry! Here are some Holiday suggestions:

1

Ambroley Best Badger Hair Shaving Brush ($34.99): This shave brush infuses your cream or soap with water, creating a richer lather than by hand. As well, while applying the lather to your face you are gently exfoliating your skin and removing dry cells so that your face is healthy and soft. Finally, a shaving brush helps to lift and soften your hair so that can experience the closest shave possible. The Quality Wood Handle provides a slip proof handle as well as being very attractive.

3

Ambroley Chrome Butterfly Razor and Stand ($39.99): A single well formed blade surrounded by quality construction, and a finely crafted butterfly mechanism is the epitome of quality shaving. Who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on razor cartridge replacements? We don’t either. This isn’t just a razor. This is an investment, and one that pays you back in smooth skin, and a heavier wallet. Best of all, it’s a visual wonder!

THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must-Have List: Beecher’s Flagship Cheddar Cheese

891548_10151851426664765_2013510314_o

This is my all-time favorite cheddar cheese in the world and if you have a cheese lover on your Holiday shopping list, surprise them with this delicacy! Who doesn’t love cheese in their stockings?

The first wheel of Flagship, Beecher’s signature cheese, was handcrafted just as Beecher’s Handmade Cheese opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in November of 2003.

Flagship is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese with a uniquely robust, nutty flavor. It is carefully aged for 15 months under the watchful eye of the cheesemaker to fully develop its complex flavor and ever-so-slight crumble. Outstanding on a Beecher’s Cracker!

THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must-Have List: The Voice Activated R2-D2

This motorized replica of the headstrong little “droid” from the iconic Star Wars films ($200) responds to voice commands, navigates rooms and hallways, and makes any home feel like it has been transported to a galaxy far, far away. R2 obeys more than 40 voice commands (“Turn around!,” “Move forward two units!”) and he plays games like tag, using an infrared sensor to search for people in a room. His sensor helps him follow behind you, or it can be set to detect motion, turning R2 into a room sentry that sounds an alarm when a secured area is invaded. R2’s lights, swiveling dome top, and distinctive happy and sad sounds faithfully mimic the real thing, right down to his occasional “bad mood.” (A simple command of, “R2, behave yourself!” snaps him out of it.) R2 can also replay sounds and dialog from Star Wars movies, answer yes-or-no questions, and dance while playing the famed cantina music. Requires four AA batteries and four D batteries. Minor assembly required. Ages 8 and up. 15″ H x 7 1/2″ W x 10 1/2″ L. (6 lbs.)
