The best Father’s Day gifts are a conundrum to me.
Do we give them (it is often the mothers who are buying for the fathers) what we like or what they like?
I think in our family we sit somewhere in the middle.
At the end of the day, it is really all about family. Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, in my mind every day is family day.
The Dolce & Gabbana advertising campaigns over the last few years have celebrated family. Yes, with a fashion twist and commercial drive but nevertheless I do admire the thoughts behind the vivid shots that include everyone from nonnas to babies.
A mix of generations is something to be cherished, envied and desired; I hope that our children will feel this way and celebrate life with all ages not simply their peers.
Fathers deserve to be spoilt every day and not just on their official one.
Father’s Day; what to give?
Other than all the love and attention they deserve, because our time is the greatest gift of all, I think the best Father’s Day gifts are those they won’t buy for themselves. Gifts that they consider too extravagant or too fashionable; the latest, the luxuries, the scents and the accessories.
And books. What man doesn’t enjoy a good book? And gadgets; we know they like those. That is not my forte so the complicated, the technical and the electrical I leave to the boys.
I have put together a selection of Father’s Day gifts that I know would be welcome in my home.
Nordstrom have invited me to select some favourites across the board.
A difficult choice because there are so many great ideas for the boys and so many goodies I know mine would love. xv
