Buying a special gift for Father’s Day can be a bit tricky. How do you tell this role model in your life, whether your father, grandfather, or other influential man, how much you appreciate them? Does a necktie communicate that? Maybe a fun pair of socks? How about a drill set? He probably has all of that. Maybe it's from last Father’s Day. Gift giving shouldn’t be this hard!
Truth is, as a father myself, what makes a Father’s Day gift so meaningful is the gift giver themselves. When my boys give me gifts (even a red M&M shaped AirPods holder they bought at a school auction) it is my delight to use them because I know they joy they felt as the giver. A meaningful card or a hand-drawn pictures from the kids and a little gift that shows they were thinking about me is all I need. With the Inspired Collection from Milkglass, you can give dad the chance to remember just how loved he is every time he lights his candle for months to come. Father’s Day gifts don’t need to be big, expensive, extravagant affairs... just meaningful, heartfelt, and warm.
The Inspired Collection has four scents inspired by outdoorsmen, book lovers, business men, and the always dapper dad. There’s something for everyone. Our Inspired Collection comes in amber jars that are the perfect addition to any office, library or man cave.
You can read more about the Inspired Collection here.
If you want something to pair with the candle, I've come up with four suggestions:
1. Coffee: I highly recommend Hao Bao Bao Coffee. This husband and wife team live and roast in Sanford, Florida and started this business when they were fundraising for their adoption. Now they help other families raise funds for adoption by selling their silky smooth coffee all around the globe. Grab bag here.
2. An Organizational Tool: I bought a journal from Hustle Co. about a year ago and I've loved it! The pages are amazing quality and don't bleed through. I was never a journal guy but this helped me bullet my to-do lists and journal some of my thoughts. Check them out here.
3. A Great Way to Start His Day: Taking time in the morning to read my Bible and connect with the Lord is important. Adding a daily devotional helps me learn new things and gets me thinking deeper about specific subjects. "The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge" by the man himself, Tony Dungy has short daily devotions that focus on the 7 themes Tony uses to sum up how Christian men reflect Jesus in our world today. Get a copy here.
4. Wine: I got a subscription to First Leaf last Christmas and it did not disappoint. To subscribe, you answer a few questions about his wine interests and they curate several varieties he might enjoy. It's a great way to try new things. Order your first bottles here.
I hope this helps! Gift giving doesn't have to be hard.
