Each year I start curating my Father’s Day list by asking my brother what he would like. His number one choice was a ticket and back stage pass to see Bruce Springsteen. His number 2 choice is a lot more doable – Miranda Lambert’s new album Platinum. He swears you don’t have to be a country music fan to love this album.
When you ask most dads what they want on their special day, you’re likely to hear answers like; “I just want to spend time with my family” or “My family is everything I need”. While I’m sure that is true, it’s always nice to present a gift, whether big or small, for him to open.
For the sweet toothed fathers the Laphroig Truffles, made with Laphroaig Scotch Whisky are a manly chocolate he is sure to love. If he is a sport’s fan he is sure to love Mariano Rivera’s new book The Closer, about his 19 seasons career as the New York Yankee’s closer (pitcher). Or, he might be into Cole Haan’s best-selling LunarGrand Chukka shoes cushioned with Nike Lunarlon Technology for ultimate comfort (I selected the Mesh Chukka).
If your man is into fashion, or even if he’s not, and he needs a style boost, a summer blazer is a great gift. Especially Tommy Hillfigger’s Bedford Rick Blazer – love that colbalt blue color!! And what man doesn’t need a new t-shirt, and James Perse’s cashmere cotton tee is the softest of the softest. Trust me, he’ll thank you in more ways than one.
Don’t forget gifts are great, but dads love to spoiled as much as we do. Make his favorite breakfast, get him a massage at the local spa (better yet, give him one). What ever it is, make sure to let him know he is number one in your book!!
