Total Clean-Up: For your sister

Karcher Wet & Dry Vacuum 1000W WD2 PLUS V-12/4/18/C
Super powerful and energy efficient, this compact vacuum cleaner can be used wet or dry and even picks up fine and coarse dirt. With a 4m-long cable, a 1.8m-long suction hose and a blower function, it's handy for use in hard-to-reach spots and areas that are far from a power point. The fleece filter bag is triple-layered and highly tear-resistant, for longer-lasting suction power and high dust-retention capacity. The appliance also includes a secure storage shelf for the accessories.

Chilled out: For dad

Keep dad’s precious wine collection fresh and ready to serve at any time. This wine chiller holds up to 16 bottles, and features an adjustable temperature setting; removable metal racks; a quiet, energy-saving compressor; double-tinted tempered glass doors; and a stainless-steel handle for a sleek, minimalist look.

Healthy meals in a flash: For your best friend
