Darkus Magazine's Christmas Gift Guide is here for you!

Updated: Dec 7, 2020

As Christmas approaches, here at Darkus we’ve put up a Gift Guide with the essential products you must grab online by the end of 2020. I know it’s been a difficult year for everyone, but in the hopes of an eventful and adventure new year full of memories to remember and moments to never forget. From the new Barack Obama’s memoir “A Promise to Land” to the latest iO oral-b electric toothbrush, here’s what we found for you.

Barack Obama - A Promised Land


Barack Obama began writing his presidential memoirs shortly after the end of his presidency. In “A Promised Land” he wanted to tell his honest rendering of his time in the office - not just a record of key events that happened throughout his experience but also his personal feelings accompanied by former Michelle Obama, his wife. He also outlines the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, from his time spent with his family between Hawaii where he was born and then Chicago until the night of November 8th, 2008 when he was elected 44th President of the United States. A major literary achievement that brings history vividly to life, “A Promised Land” extends an invitation to all of us - especially to young people- to “once again remake the world, and to bring about, through hard work, determination and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is the best in us.”

Marvis is a contemporary brand from Italy who create fantastic toothpaste and toothbrushes which have made waves in personal care and fashion circles. So what makes Marvis different from your average supermarket toothpaste?

Marvis is a ‘heritage toothpaste’ which first came onto the market in the 1950s. The idea of a heritage toothpaste does sound a little strange. When it comes to dental hygiene, you want the best for your teeth, not simply a fashion product - but Marvis deliver top quality dental hygiene alongside a striking visual style.

Marvis Toothpaste doesn’t compromise on hygiene. Not only do the toothpastes come in fantastic flavours and packaging, they are top-quality fluoride toothpastes that remove plaque and help keep your teeth clean and white.

oral-B iO Electric Brush

Price differentiates based on size BUY HERE

The iO is the best looking and performing Oral-B toothbrush we have ever used. And as you would expect, it cleans and massages your teeth really well.

It introduces significant enhancements in the overall mechanical design, noise and appearance compared to existing Oral-B toothbrushes. The iO is a top of the line toothbrush and the price tag reflects this.

Essential features are present, as are some arguably less than essential ones.

Including a colour display in the handle and items like the pressure sensor and battery life make the iO very appealing.

The real-time 3D teeth tracking is clever and encourages better brushing, but it is not without faults. Few are likely to commit to using the app on a daily basis. If you want the very best of Oral-B today, this is it, but for something so pricey, there is still scope for improvement. The new iO electric brush is the smart toothbrush you need every day for a smart and better oral health.
