Father’s Day Series: Top Gifts for Grandpa

May 16, 2013

There’s something about grandparents that’s so much easier and calmer (sometimes) than being with parents. Grandparents can swoop in and spoil you, and leave the tough stuff to Mom and Dad (the changing, disciplining, overall child-rearing). You have two generations of distance (and, some would say, a common enemy!).

As part of our Father’s Day series, we wanted to include a salute to all grandfathers, who can act as second fathers or the best of friends. Doting, devoted, seasoned, sarcastic: they’ve seen it all, and have the best stories and advice (or, perhaps, dated advice that’s still entertaining and unforgettable).

We sometimes associate grandfathers with free time (assuming they’re retired), and therefore a lot of coffee. We all know how much they can like their chair, their paper, their mug, so why not give him another one that’s unquestionably his — that he can add to “my collection”? With the “We Love Grandpa” Mug, you can add your favorite photo and a special saying — an inside joke or sentiment of love:

Has anyone else’s grandfather grown slightly forgetful? Odds are, he could definitely use something to help him keep track of things and make life easier – like the “Best Grandpa Ever” Father’s Day Keychain, which you can personalize with all of his grandkids’ names:

For the cinephile or wise-guy grandpa, our “The Grandfather” Trucker Hat is a seriously funny nod to a classic that, odds are, he reveres as the pinnacle of movies:

Coming up next, we end our Father’s Day series with a round-up of our favorite gifts to make your father’s day.

Father’s Day Series: LOL Gifts for Funny Dad

May 15, 2013

As we continue our Father’s Day series, we salute the hilarious dads in our lives — the comedians, the think-they’re-comedians and the ones who just love a good laugh.

In the spirit of taking ourselves not at all seriously, this “Reserved Parking” Card is the perfect vehicle (so to speak) to express your love and appreciation — or verbally shake your fist:

If your dad is the bankroller type (lucky you), he’ll love the tongue-in-cheek “First National Bank of Dad” Mug to hold his gold-flecked coffee or tea:

And for the kind of dad who has “his chair” (think: the unforgettable Martin Crane from Frasier), get him a Mr. Lazy Trucker Hat in honor of the lovable book series that he may or may not have read, but definitely fits into:

We love a funny dad, and this Father’s Day, he’ll love the kind of gift that says, “You deserve a laugh, today and all year round.”

Father’s Day Series: Top Gifts for the New Dad

May 14, 2013

One of the scariest things we can do in life is to have a baby. Will you know what to do when they cry? Will they ever sleep (and will you)? So when that first Father’s Day rolls around and you’ve made it in one piece, it’s a major cause for celebration.

As we kick off our series for Father’s Day, we honor all the New Dads in our lives. Each of them deserves a special, meaningful gift, whether it’s practical, touching or funny.

For starters, every dad can use a new t-shirt — remember how much laundry a new family has to do? The “This Is How I Roll” Tee is a stylin’ choice for walks through the neighborhood, the park or the mall, or even lazing at home:

For a more personalized homage, give him the “1st Father’s Day” Photo Card with a priceless pic of your little one:

And for the babe of honor, the “I’m your Father’s Day gift!” Baby Tee is an adorable memento for everyone:

Your baby is the ultimate gift, of course — and the umpteenth reason to celebrate your beloved new dad.
