I guess it’s time to think about papas, since we’re just one week away from Father’s Day.
Sure, you can get him a shaving kit, golf clubs, maybe a robe. But, why not get him something super fun, out-of-the-box, and show him that he’s awesome?
Sugarfina The Vine Collection – Okay, this gift almost didn’t make it to photograph because I kept eating it! That’s why one box had to be fully closed – not much inside. For the chocolate lover who’s tried it all, The Vice Collection is the Bees Knees.
Dad will enjoy decadent treats of chocolate, booze, even bacon flavors – didn’t try that last flavor, but I’m sure anyone who does eat pig will pork themselves all over it. #WasThatEvenFunny
Bonobos + Rockets of Awesome Swimwear – Who says mommy should have all the style matching fun with the munchkins? My currently favorite kids clothing brand, Rockets of Awesome, teamed up with Bonobos to create matching swimwear for dad and the kids.
Spoiler alert: I picked up a pair for my husband, father-in-law and daughter.
Alas, they didn’t have any left in size 2/3 for my son. If Bonobos is reading this, can you check any “hidden” inventory? I’d love to get trunks for my little man. #WeLikeToMatch
Papa Bear Box – Being a new parent is daunting, especially if you’re a dad. Nobody really takes the time to think about what you’re going through.
Now, thanks to Papa Bear Box, you can get a new dad a delivery every 4-6 weeks full of snacks to help him stay awake at night, baby products that are papa bears approved, and items to remind him he isn’t alone in the woods. #SupportDads
Framebridge – If you’re dad has a favorite photo, postcard, concert tickets, football jersey, whatever, chances are he hasn’t taken the time to properly preserve it. Do it for him, with Framebridge, the simplest way to custom frame what he loves.
Deadline for mail-in framings has passed (that’s on me – meant to post this all last week!) but you can always show dad an it’s-coming-soon photo of his gift. Also, upload deadline for basic photo framing is today. Get on it. Prices range from $39-$159.
PS I’m giving myself a Father’s Day present by framing the tie my dad wore to my wedding. It was a magical day in many ways. It was a brief moment of good health for him (I’m sure the big guy upstairs helped) and it was the last time we got to dance together. I’m so grateful to the customer service team at Framebridge for reassuring me that they would take excellent care of the tie, because I was quite hesitant to even mail it in. #FramedWithLove
Josh Cellars – I’ve been a fan of this brand for years – great taste, no fuss, and fantastic prices. But, as of last week, when I got to meet founder Joseph Carr and learn about his love for his father (Josh was his father’s name) I’m even more committed to toasting my amazing husband, father-in-law, and late father, with this delightful brand.
For Father’s Day, Josh Cellars is letting you personalize a label. Simply log onto JoshCellars.com for the label maker. You can include text and a photo, if desired.
Oh, and you can even choose to have your message uploaded to a Times Square Billboard. Josh Cellars will email a photo of the label when it is live on the billboard to share with dad, for the ultimate fatherly love proclamation!
Expedited shipping will be offered through June 13th, so get on it. Sorry, again, I totally meant to have this blog post up last week … but I was doing too much mommying and too much Rose-ing after 9pm. #KeepingItReallyRose
Hammacher’s The World’s Greatest Dad Personalized Map Puzzle – I saw this and thought of my brother-in-law. He likes to tinker, loves puzzles and a great challenge.
Any dad who loves quiet time or wants a bonding activity with the kids, will enjoy this special puzzle. #PiecesofLove
