Every June, we look forward to helping all those trying to find that perfect something for those graduating, getting married or simply honoring Dad. One of the most memorable moments was when a mom bought a sleeper sofa for her daughter and soon to be son-in-law, so she could stay with them for the wedding. Here are a few other suggestions we’d recommend as well.
Instill inspiration with a great read such as:
• If I Could Tell You Just One Thing: Encounters with Remarkable People and their Most Valuable Advice by Richard Reed.
• Designing Your Life How to Build Aa Well-Lived Joyful Life by Bill Burnett & Dave Evans.
• I Just Graduated Now What? by Katherine Schwarzenegger.
Mark the occasion with a monogram necklace and charms.
And for those just starting out, help stock their first apartment with linens, flatware, glassware and dishes. For something unique we offer word trays—“be the best you”—motivational objet.
Give them the gift of thanks—literally—with stationery for that little note to say the two words that might get you farther in life than any others, “Thank you.”
Or perhaps your grad is taking a gap year to globe-trot the world or just landed the perfect job which has them traveling for work. Try our passport covers and business card holders in all natural leather with a variety of colors such as beige, tan, red, black and more.
This is the time of year where you see Dads everywhere getting their inner Bobby Flay on, manning the grill. And we have barbecue tools, aprons, and more sure to round out their collection and keep them grilling.
We also carry select barware including mahogany corkscrews, wooden muddlers, classic brass and nickel flasks with moon phases etchings, and Ancient Olive Dirty Martini Juice. Or give him a better ice cube—Whiskey Stones. They chill beverages without diluting them as ice cubes do. For beer lovers, we also stock glassware, hand towels and Graf Lantz Bierfilzl felt coasters.
And for those who prefer brainteasers, consider Haikubes which let you create fascinating Haikus with the roll of the dice.
