4) For the Fashionista
“My friend loves fashion, so I’ll buy them a nice outfit.” Great idea… unless it’s the wrong size. Or the wrong cut. Or they just don’t like it! Better idea: get them something they’re certain to love, like the Philips Steam&Go SmartFlow Handheld Garment Steamer.
The Steam&Go is a smarter, easier, and more effective way to get wrinkles out of your clothes. It’s safe to use on all ironable fabrics – even delicate materials like silk – but can also be used on heavier items like coats. Thanks to the SmartFlow heated plate and continuous steam function, you can get great results steaming horizontally or vertically. You can even get wrinkles out of your clothes while they’re still on coat-hangers – no need for an ironing board. Now that’s a gift that never goes out of style.
