2014 Fathers Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is around the corner (June 15th this year), and is the perfect time to show the first man in our lives just how much we care. Dads have a huge influence on out lives and are always there when we need them. This Father's Day make it extra special for them, with gifts from:

The Body Shop Canada -

The Body Shop White Musk for Men Shower, Soften & Spritz Trio
SRP: $45
A modern, masculine infusion of musk and woods with crisp, fresh, aromatic notes. Includes the Eau de Toilette, Aftershave Balm, and Hair & Body Wash. Dad's gonna love this gift!

Edible Arrangements-

For a universal gift that any dad would be sure to enjoy, get dad an assortment of mouth-watering treats. With summer right around the corner, 76.9 million Americans tend to BBQ on Father’s Day. Cool-off on a hot summer day with a gift to dad from Edible Arrangements—assorted fruits serve as a delicious treat for hard-working fathers, family members and friends. 

We had the opportunity to try one of these for the first time while here in Orlando, and they are done so nicely, that anyone would love to have this gifted to them!

Spa & Wellness Gift Cards-

This month, it’s Dad’s turn to relax. Think outside of the (gift) box this Father’s Day and give Dad a relaxing spa treatment to soothe body and mind. Think the spa isn’t for him? Well think again, because 47% of spa-goers are men, according to the International Spa Association.

Whether it’s a sports massage to relieve his aching back or a nutrition class to help him shed those extra pounds (and lots in between), there’s a spa treatment that caters to the health and wellness needs of every type of Dad, and it’s in affordable reach thanks to Spa Week’s Dads and Grads Gift Card Sale. Now thru June 16th, purchase a $100 Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week® for just $84.99, or receive 15% off all other denominations by visiting www.spaweek.com/dad.

Spa & Wellness Gift Cards are redeemable year-round at over 8,000 spa and wellness locations across North America and never expire, so recipients have peace of mind knowing they can experience a soothing spa treatment close to home at any time. Better yet, they can even use their gift card on vacation or during a weekend getaway at one of the thousands of accepting hotel and resort spas.


12 Pairs: Hanes Classics Tagless Stretch Boxer Briefs with Comfort Flex® Waistband - Assorted Colors


Crocs has great shoes to help dad relax this Father's Day! They've gone and combined traditional Crocs comfort with fashionable new styles, and I'm digging the results. Even better, they've put together a whole Father's Day gift guide to help you choose the pair your dad will like best. I'd suggest taking a look at the stretch soles - they're ridiculously comfy!

Vanilla Gift-

Vanilla Gift makes for a great gift idea for Father’s Day because they allow dads to do something somewhat unfamiliar, sometimes even unheard of…treat themselves. Being the kind, selfless gentlemen that they are, husbands and dads alike always look to accommodate and please their loved ones, putting their wants and needs on the back burner. Vanilla Gift, accepted anywhere Visa and MasterCard are, allow dads to start that DIY project and head to Home Depot or pick up the latest and greatest golf gear at Sports Authority.

Instead of chancing that your dad may or may not like the sneakers you've picked out for him this Father’s Day, surprise him with something new- the option of whatever he would like!

Things Remembered- Professional 9-Piece Barbeque Set

If he considers himself a grilling aficionado, then any grill master worth his briquettes needs a professional barbecue set. Ours features all the stainless steel essentials, including a spatula/flipper that's the Swiss Army knife of spatulas. It features a cutting edge, tenderizing edge and drain slots. And to help him keep all nine pieces together, it comes in a poly canvas black tote on which you can add his name or initials to let the world know he is the Baron of BBQ.

I Am A Stuffed Animal-

Some Dads are easy to shop for. And then there are other Dads that require days devoted to thinking of a clever and unexpected Father’s Day gift. 
What better gift than an IAASA completely custom stuffed animal? You can stuff yourself, stuff him, stuff your pet–the possibilities are endless!
Show your Dad he’s #1 on June 16.

Tuesday- June 10th- Orlando

Hello everyone! Day 2 in Orlando and another hot one it was. Temps got to 35 degrees today and that was already quite early in the day. Daughter Ria said it's only 8 degrees back home. She even had to close the petting zoo. We certainly have not had much of a summer back home at all. But still a bit too humid here today for me. 

We were suppose to go do a review of the Blue Man Group show tonight at Universal, but it has been raining very hard for the last few hours, and we just don't feel like getting soaked walking into the park to get there. Bought a rain jacket while on our holiday, but even just wearing it from the van to the condo my feet and legs got soaked so it's a night in!

We did go to Camping World today- bought a few things for the rv. Got to check out a 2012 rv in the showroom- $100,000-wow- but nice inside-lol

Did some souvenir shopping today and went to Universal Studios' Islands of Adventure. Wow- alot of people. Do make sure you wear good shoes while here- lots of walking, from where you are parking to the entrance of the park. We do recommend the Universal Express as well. You get to bypass the regular lines with these for all rides and attractions. No shortage of place to shop and places to eat for sure. Enjoy the photos! We spent a good few hours just walking around looking at the sites here.
