Getting the right gift for anyone takes a lot of effort. Handmade stuff is super cute from young children, but as they grow older, the effort on those gifts wanes with results that are sometimes… not so stellar.
With three sons who weren’t the most adept at gift-giving, I can’t count the number of ugly sweaters, gaudy ties and gift cards to the hardware store my Dad racked up over the years. My Dad wore a uniform of white dress shirts and dress pants six days a week for work— how much of that did he possibly need? But now, as I raise kids myself, I understand the value of practical gifts that add value to his life instead of ones I got “just ‘cuz.”
And it being 2018 and all, one gift that keeps on giving is technology—specifically the kind that goes wherever you do.
The World’s Catching Up—Smartphones and Semolina in the Same Shop? Oh, My!
With a couple of decades under its belt, the cellphone’s no longer this device ill-understood by the generations that came before us. My parents use social media to keep up with what I’m up to (at least that’s what I tell myself), and both have smartphones of their own to play with. I think too many people my age don’t give our parents nearly enough credit, grossly underestimating how ubiquitous smartphones have become for users of all ages.
So ubiquitous, in fact, that you can now pick up new smartphones and accessories from the grocery store.
You read that right—you might not have known this, but The Mobile Shop locations are found at participating grocery stores where PC products are sold, offering a full selection of smartphones and plans from all major carriers to give you great value! In hundreds of locations from coast to coast, The Mobile Shop offers trusted advisors who’ll show you the best phone plan that meets your needs. You may even be able to earn hundreds of PC Optimum points! So whether your Dad’s the type who wants nothing to do with this new-fangled technology or the guy who helped you build your own computer as a teen, The Mobile Shop has the right fit for you.
The Mobile Shop—Because A Smartphone’s a Great Thing to Get The Man Who Has Everything!
The world isn’t as clear-cut as it used to be. We buy cleaning supplies from the place once just sold books and rent movies from what used to be a search engine. We define masculinity differently than we did before and realise that everyone needs their own tools and resources to truly express themselves.
So this summer, I’ll be making the memories that we’ll look back on decades from now, and what better to do it with than my smartphone?
It’s 2018, y’all—time to make sure you have the device that gives you exactly what you need. And it couldn’t be more convenient with The Mobile Shop.
Make great choices out there!
Until the next,
