another round of gift ideas for men on father’s day

Father's Day, gift ideas, tips + tricks, occasions

Yesterday I have shared a few gift ideas for men in time for Father’s Day + here are a few more items you might want to consider gifting the most important man in your life on his big day:

  • A new shaving kit can very well be one of the best gifts you might give Dad, as shaving is one of the things he does everyday + updating his shaving kit, + throwing in a bottle of a luxurious shaving oil can be a sure-fire way to jump start his day! 
  • You can print personalized greeting cards + let the little ones scribble their sweet notes for Dad! For the babies who cannot doodle just yet, you can try stamping these cards with their hand or footprints, I bet dad will love this!
  • Let dad take a breather from the hard day’s work by chilling a few bottles of his favorite drinks in the ref + serving them to him when he’s home. You can also decorate these bottles with colorful Father’s Day printables to make them more appealing to the man of the house.
  • For your bookworm dad, a copy or two of his favorite paperbacks will be very much appreciated. Wrap them in colorful papers + attach your personalized note for a complete beautiful package. 
  • Tickets to Sunday’s basketball or baseball game also sounds like a wonderful gift idea for Dad. I bet he will have a splendid time outdoors + witnessing his favorite team win the game!
I am sure you can think of a dozen more ideas on what to give your Dad this Father’s Day + I’d love to read about it in a comment below! :)

This is a sponsored post for the Art of Shaving, all the points and views are my own, however.

happy easter everyone!

occasions, greetings, Easter

The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise. Carl Knudsen
While everyone else is flocking to their respective Easter Egg Hunt activities this morning, the little man is engrossed with yet another Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode + simply refuse to take a bath. I have been meaning to bring him along to the mall today + check out whatever Easter-related activities they might have + thought we’d join the fun. But, it seems like the little man has another plan, besides, he is also nursing a bit of coughs + colds, that I might just opt for us to stay at home so he can have enough rest + just relax while playing with his toy cars.
Even if our Easter plans will not push through, I see no reason why I shouldn’t greet you all a “Happy Easter!” It is one occasion that brings hope to all of us + I would really love that we celebrate with you, but, am going to have to settle with what’s ahead + probably check out what’s on the tellie today, instead. I have found a lot of interesting local + foreign, albeit translated to Filipino, movies the past few days + I realized how much I love doing this + being a couch potato. So, I’d probably check out in a while + see what mum + the little man can watch.

Happy Easter everyone + I hope you are having a great one! ;)
