In the tradition of making dads around the world feel special in a couple weeks, I’m giving you a fail-proof way to show your appreciation.
I’ve partnered with Williams Sonoma to curate a list of papa approved items that are sure to put a small on your old mans face. Just don’t mention the ‘old’ part of that whole description. As Father’s Day is celebrated on the cusp of summer, it’s best to remember how to cool things down and celebrate the head of the family in fashion. I’ve taken inspiration from the warm weather, the need to have a beverage in hand at family events and a history of what seems to be popular amongst pops.
Knowing full well that dads are know for their strong drinks, start with a bevy that will whet his whistle and allow him to make one of his ‘dad speeches’ after a few. Williams Sonoma has their own line of beautifully created margarita starters. For the different palates in the house, be sure to pick the variety pack with flavors like pineapple-habanero, key lime and mango passion fruit. Just add your favorite tequila or sparkling water to make this fiesta for your daddio on point
Once you have your mix just right, let’s blend it up. Dad will appreciate the thought and effort you put into this next gift. In the spirit of educating your father in all things tech, why not make this advanced touchscreen blender a staple in his kitchen? That’s right, this blender is a one touch machine that will allow him to step away and tend to other things while his drink is readied. This machine makes it easy to choose from five speeds and pulse, smoothie and ice crushing. You’ll be winning dad over at this point.
Pour up your perfectly mixed drink and get out the glassware. If your dad is anything like mine, he appreciates great cocktail glasses. The ones I’ve chosen this year are sure to be a winner. Distinguished by a clean, straight profile and weighted base, each double old-fashioned glass is expertly machine blown of brilliantly clear, lead-free crystalline glass. Get pops a set of four and make it easy to stock the bar so he has plenty on hand for large gatherings. Or when you pop by and need some advice from the big man.
Liven up his celebration and show dad that Father’s Day is one that deserves proper pomp and circumstance!
